Does stuff make you better?
Do You really want to surrender to a flat, lousy, material and useless life?

Not me, dude, not me. I can still dream. I can still play.


Ordinary Man

Sitting on the couch watching tv
Pretending to be free
Spending money buying things
shopping slavery begins

Flabby sweaty bodies rushing far
Dirty soul and pristine cars
Wasting time at shopping malls
Houses full of useless stuff

Exhibiting brands and acting cool
( wont make you better, man)

I don’t want to be an ordinary man
A lousy life is just a scary hell
Fireflies in the dark
Showing me new paths

I don’t want to be an ordinary man
I want to listen to my Tinkerbell
Butterflies fly
Inside my mind

Waiting for a saturday to live
The life that’s in your dreams
Perpetuating this routines
Drowning worries in a beer

Heavy heads on sunday morning
Still drunk to think
Back to dull reality
You’re your limit and your enemy

Formed in 2001, after years playing live covers of the biggest hard rock bands, we finally started recording own songs.
'Playing Hard', was published 2012.
After 4 years, 3 marriages and a total of 7 sons from the 4 band members, our passion for music made us win laziness and find the time to write and record our new EP. Definitely more fecund than musically prolific ;-) But we don’t give up!
