about

The third album from The Gravitons, 'Gentlemens Club', is very much in the spirit of the first album 'Redetermination'. Retro 60's and 70's folk rock vibes combine with contemporary Indie rock to forge out the unique sound of The Gravitons.

Laced with melodies, acoustic guitars, Hammond organs, twangy electric guitars, harmonicas and vintage keyboard sounds you'll quickly be transported into a familiar yet original zone.

A heap of beautiful songs about the human way ......

Flavours include sweat, sour, success, failure, hope, betrayal, birth, death, love, loss, redemption, spirit, determination, work, rest, busyness, laziness, fairness, unfairness, anger, forgiveness, mortality, joy, taking and giving.




Review

"This time last year we were raving about the excellent debut album from The Gravitons, 'Redetermination' contained an amazing bundle of work shaped loosely around the Psychedelic Folk genre, those surreal qualities and charming arrangements are still frequently aired around here. Surprised and relieved the latest release 'Gentlemens Club' hasn..t wandered to far from tentatively executed progressive folk and enlightened storytelling. The overall higher percentage of homespun acoustic ditties subsequently draws you closer, entering a song on even terms always gets the best results. A fantastic release, you..re never going to get a straight forward release from The Gravitons, whether it..s toying with folk or articulating different beats, pushing boundaries with multi-influenced concepts seems an almost natural musical journey." --Mojophenia

Review

"...when I listen to this album, I feel like I should be on highway during a long extensive car drive. But this is not a bad thing, this is a good thing. I love listening to music on long car drives and this is just the perfect fit for that." --Indie Rock Kid

Track Name: On The Bright Side
When you take me by the hand
We will reach the promised land
On the bright side of the day
On the right side of the day

When you take me by the hand
We will reach the promised land
On the bright side of the day
On the right side of the day

On the bright side of the day
On the right side of the day
On the bright side of the day
On the right side of the day

If only I had known right away
What I'd come to know but today
I would be a much richer man

If only I had known right away
The things that can change in a day
One minute good and then bad
If only I had known right away

But if you take me by the hand
We will reach the promised land
On the bright side of the day
On the right side of the day

If you take me by the hand
We will reach the promised land
On the bright side of the day
On the right side of the day

On the bright side of the day
On the right side of the day
On the bright side of the day
On the right side of the day

If only I had known right away
What money and greed have to say
The route of all evil is planned

If only I had known yesterday
I'd turn round and walk the other way
They'll cheat you, rob you and scam
If only I had known right away

But if you take me by the hand
We will reach the promised land
On the bright side of the day
On the right side of the day

If you take me by the hand
We will reach the promised land
On the bright side of the day
On the right side of the day

On the bright side of the day
On the right side of the day
On the bright side of the day
On the right side of the day

If only I had known right away
Track Name: Lovely Day
Lovely day, Lovely day, I get what I need
Lovely day, Lovely day, Why always want more
Lovely day, Lovely day, Ruled by the heart
Lovely day, Lovely day, But never get far

Lonely day, Lovely day, Lovely Day ....
Oh let me beside you, Let me
Then it comes round again

Lovely day, Lovely day, Then why do I bleed
Lovely day, Lovely day, The selfish feed
Lovely day, Lovely day, Lookout desire
Lovely day, Lovely day, Pushed to the wire

Lonely day, Lovely day ....
Oh let me beside you, let me
Then it comes round again

Lonely day, Lovely day, Lovely Day ....
Oh let me beside you, Let me
Then it comes round again

<bridge>

Lonely day, Lovely day, Lovely Day ....
Oh let me beside you, Let me
Then it comes round again

Lovely day, Lovely day, Then why do I bleed
Track Name: In A Look
I look in the mirror and what do I see
A faded resemblance
A version of me

In a look, hey

Beware of the man your karma has sent
Takes all your money
Ideas and friends

In a look, hey

Needless desires
Delusions of grand
Fame and the ego have tainted the man

In a look, hey
In a look, hey
In a look, hey
In a look, hey
In a look, hey
Track Name: A Salesman
A salesman came calling said won't you be mine
I'll give you great riches if you give me some time
And all that I ask for is 10 pounds a week
A modest deposit and commission fee
I ask you politely to sign on the line
And thank you so much for your cash and your time

A few days later the goods did arrive
They weren't quite what I'd asked for but I gave them a try
But after a short time they all went berserk
The customer service left me in the lurch
A call to the helpline but still no reply
I'm lost in the call centre yet one more time

And still I am paying 10 pounds a week
The banks are all bankers they've all become thieves
The office of fair trading has had to resign
The watchdog is funded by weasels and slime
I'm left with these goods that are useless to me
And what is to come stuck in bureaucracy

A Salesman came calling said won't you be mine
Track Name: Another Way
I'm tired of going in a straight line
All the better days are gone, gone
But I hope and I pray

For another way, yeah
Another way, yeah
Another way, yeah
Another way

I'm sick of hearing about the old times
Even thought they were more fun, fun
Coz I want mine today

Looking for another way, yeah
Another way, yeah
Another way, yeah
Another way

Be whatever, we'll go far
Will be what will be

I'm coming down the mountain
See what I can find
Looking for a hero
To help me with my mind
Liberate the head
Modify the goal
I don't need a reason
Into the great unknown
Track Name: Could You Be The One
You turn me away
I'm not clear where I'm at
Now you've entered my heart
The whirlwind has taken me off
To a new place
And set me a path

Now I'm not looking for an answer
I'm just wishing for that fair share
Now I'm returning into sand

Could you be the one to set me free
Could you be the one to rescue me
Could you be the one to ease my mind
Could you be the one the rarer kind

Wishing and hoping
And wondering and praying
For where we could be
Singing and laughing
And loving and dancing
It's all part of being

High on everything we can be
Wind the river down the old sea
Now I'm returning into sand

Could you be the one to set me free
Could you be the one to rescue me
Could you be the one to ease my mind
Could you be the one the rarer kind

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

Could you be the one to set me free
Could you be the one to rescue me
Could you be the one to ease my mind
Could you be the one the rarer kind

Ah, ah
As I return into the sand
Track Name: My Dream
You fill be confidence
Fuel me with greed
High expectations
And low self esteem

But oh there you go
Oh there you go
Oh there you go, Oh
You're my dream


You take me away
From this world for the day
I've had enough
Enough of it's ways

Then oh there you go
Oh there you go
Oh there you go, Oh
You're my dream
You're my dream
You're my dream
You're my dream

Ah, ah, ah .....

Can't always be lovely
Can't always be true
A thousand dead flowers
Went sour for you
But now and then
Things can turn
Look can bring anything
Everything, Angels sing
Showers of blue

You're my dream
You're my dream
You're my dream
You're my dream
You're my dream

I get what I get
And I need what I need
There's so many ways
To make me believe
Don't live with regret
You'll find you're own way
And learn to be you
And live for the day

You're my dream
You're my dream
You're my dream, dream, dream, dream
You're my dream
You're my dream
Track Name: High-Rise
Will you come back
'Cause I miss you

From your high-rise
See the sun catch
Your beautiful, beautiful eyes

From your high-rise
See the sun catch
Your beautiful, beautiful eyes

Track Name: Every Reason
No reason to get up tomorrow
Every reason to get up today
No reason, Every reason
Every reason, No Reason
Every reason, No Reason, Hooray

Been so down lately
I could break down and cry
Destroying my brain
With whiskey in vein
And the old house wine

No reason to get up tomorrow
Every reason to get up today
No reason, Every reason
Every reason, No Reason
Every reason, No Reason, Hooray

Some people live for the weekend
And others live for the night
Been paying my way and saving
But I just keep on falling behind

No reason to get up tomorrow
Every reason to get up today
No reason, Every reason
Every reason, No Reason
Every reason, No Reason, Hooray

I've given away all my fortune
And I know where it went
On the road to true happiness
It's a price worth paying

No reason to get up tomorrow
Every reason to get up today
Every reason, No Reason
No reason, Every reason
Every reason, No Reason, Hooray
Every reason, No Reason, Hooray
Every reason, Every Reason, Hooray
Track Name: Movement Of It
Sun and sky
Take us through it all
We're the movement of it
Why oh why

We're here for the stay
So get carried away
We're here for us all
We're here for us all
Could be just wonderful

Inner life
Wondering what it's for
Trying to make the best of
What you find

Don't throw that away
It's got something to say
Been travelling on
Keep travelling on
Then you'll find you belong
Track Name: It's Clear
Our time has come
Our time is now

We are tomorrow
Tomorrow's now

Oh, that just won't do it's clear
Oh, that just won't do it's clear

oh, oh

Our time is near
Our time is now
We are tomorrow
Tomorrow's now

Oh, that just won't do it's clear
Oh, that just won't do it

Oh, that just won't do it's clear
Track Name: Space Dust
Sitting on the top of a monument
Watching the world go by
Sitting on the edge of a shoreline
Watching the world sail by
Sitting on the top of a mountain
Watching the clouds, high
Sitting on a lunar surface
Watching the world die
Sitting on the edge of the universe tonight

Mm, space dust
Mm, space
Mm
Mm, There's no race hear
We just glide
We just glide
Every now and then
We Collide

Sitting on the edge of a lunar landscape
Up, some new chemical formulae
Track Name: Something Like That
I never wanted
To be some kind of big star
All I ever wanted was love
Or something like that

I never wanted
To be some kind of big star
All I ever wanted was love
Or something like that
Was love
Or something like that
Was love
Or something like that


I never wanted
To be some kind of big star
All I ever wanted was love
Or something like that
Was love
