White Knuckles bleeding into the dust Cherry red and rough as rust just Fill my arms with All the goods that you can Fill our hearts with Supply and demand Overtime eating into your life Fading looks going under the knife just Fill my arms with All the goods that you can Fill our hearts with Supply and demand Medication brought to chill your brain It’s hard work in a losing game Fill my arms with All the goods that you can Fill our hearts with Supply and demand You want love and you want it for free But sex sells from behind the screen Fill my arms with All the goods that you can Fill our hearts with Supply and demand

Oh come on, we had a deal You take the high road while I get high I wasn't asking for much of it, but still you had to steal You take the lights and I'll take what's mine You have the face of middle England I have the face of a dog I have the dirty ears of the unwashed You have the ear of your god Your saviour's a man of expensive taste Which always struck me as odd More at home in your mullioned mansions Than down here in our mud Beneath the marble and limestone We built a warren of thieves Beneath the sangfroid and cynicism We whispered things that we mean Beneath the thread needle three piece suits We made our clothes out of leaves Beneath the things that you wanted us to be We've been the people we've been Take it, it's yours We won't act surprised The world wasn't something we wanted We found a nation underneath your foundations Plant a fucking flag Sanctify the dead Fill the barrels with (dead) flowers This one, this one is ours Build a home for the lost and the forlorn In the gap between the train and the platform Leave the lions share for the lions There are many like it but this one is mine

Hey little Mary with the cemetery eye She's gonna ride a rusty elevator into the sky All along the thirteenth floor She's dragging a broken jaw and naked polaroid A heavy disguise When I was born I was seeing double When I was born I was seeing double When I was born I was seeing double When I was born I was seeing double Rank little narcissists, right wing apologists Corporate ventriloquists and neo liberal counterfeits I get so sick of all their posturing and bullshit While secret predators pose as national treasures Perpetual interns on another smooth endeavour It's clandestine it's clever, oh well whatever Pathological liars and lifestyle gurus with high anxiety and daddy issues Tell me When I was born I was seeing double When I was born I was seeing double When I was born I was seeing double When I was born I was seeing double I am the curator of the abyss You are the cannibal I am a servant to the wilderness Lost in the capital Little Mary was a fortune hunter A shadow lover from a world unseen A cloak and dagger as the fools all staggered Into the honeytrap, into the dream Panoptic apparitions of the utopian dream Little Mary's got a secret that whispers through her teeth She says “We’ve all been suffocated and over saturated and all these big ideas and blind belief are overrated Oh look! Oh watch me as I climb on up the ladder Overexposed and analysed and jumping at my shadow Falling straight into the gallows with these friendly little fellows Everybody’s got a story, Everybody’s got to swallow"

Colossal Squid the only one Fought so hard but never won We’ve only found defeat of you fighting in the deep Colossal scars across the back of the only thing which you attack Blue whale king of the sea is your only enemy Sail Away Captain saw the sky turn black Dead ahead they can’t turn back He shouted "Let em be" "They’re the giants of the sea" Afraid blue whale vs colossal squid Thrashed and crushed, capsize the ship Captain never thought they’d be Just a sunken mystery Sail away

Light fades to the west Through the mist I see Down the road bends All my friends away Waves take me away It’s the confidence that has left you Then It’s my everyday never ending It’s the always by your side Now It’s the changing of the tide I have made my boarder I have stood my ground I will fight for everyday I will work, yes I will work You will search, but you can’t find me You will search, but I’ve moved on I have moved to a tower Now I’ll move to the sky

about

Kurtz present their second album, ‘Made of Waves’ - a record of collaborations with an array of artists from the London scene.

Longtime fans of Frank Turner/Million Dead will be pleased to hear a return to his punk roots on ‘Warren of Thieves’, while the album also boasts the talents of Crushed Beaks’ Matt Poile, brothers Chris & Adam Prendergast (Alex Clare | Lianne La Havas), Liam Lever (LTNT) and former Arrows of Love vocalist Lyndsey Lupe to name but a few. The resulting record is a unique and bold sonic journey through London’s underground rock scene.

Following their debut LP ‘Falcon Frontiers’ (2012 Soundmaker Records), the pair decided to take a wider approach to making music, discarding the restraints of a two-piece by inviting input from friends and associates. As guitarist Fred says, "we wanted to expand upon the notion of what music lovers think a two piece band can achieve".

With production from Tape Op’s Al Lawson (Lower Than Atlantis, Peace) and mastering by the award-winning John Davis (MPG’s Mastering Engineer of the Year 2016, Led Zeppelin, Royal Blood, The Prodigy), this album has been crafted by some of the industry’s finest talents.
