It is printed in full below. …………………………….

“In 1996, filmaker Daragh McCarthy directed a documentary inspired by the noises emanating from Dublin’s independent rock scene. At the time, we didn’t know if this urgent groundswell in activity was destined to be just an ephemeral phenomenon or whether it was the foundation for a future infrastructure.
All we knew was that it was some of the best and most pro-active music making in a country other wise smothered by corporate bandwagoneering and post-U2 tail-chasing. The Stars Are Underground was, quite simply a film crying out to be made. In retrospect, it has become a prescient foretaste of the depth of fine music being made in Ireland, four years later.

Stars… is a film about dreamers, visionaries, wannabe Warhols and shoe-string svengalis. A film about punk-rock, country outlaws, decadent discordance and slack jaw stoners. It’s about people relearning the DIY process and starting to get it right. Releasing their own records, making their own videos, designing their own sleeves, organising their own events and basically doing the complete opposite to those who so willingly bowed down to the industry before them.
But this documentary doesn’t wallow in underground romance. It details with the day-to-day hands-on banalities of being in a band, the lure of the corporate dollar and the struggle to be heard. The music ranges from brash and formative excorcisms of anger, to sophisticated, aspirational creations, to probing, vehement experimentation. Jubliee All Stars’ initial releases on their own Hi-Tone label and Dead Elvis, sound as fantastic as the first time they shambled revolutions round your record player. As does Wormhole’s low-slung primitive hypnosis and Luggage’s muffled and debonair series of Eps on Blunt Records. And Female Hercules and Bambi and the Great Western Squares and Pet Lamb and The Idiots and Mexican Pets.
Some of them have gone, some still here, in one form or another. Label owners and media-mouths such as Colm O’Callaghan, Dan Oggly and Eamonn Crudden have their say too, discussing the naivete that fuels these records, and questioning the magnitude of the independent structure.
International figures such as Therapy’s Andy Cairns and Fugazi’s Ian MacKaye express words of wisdom and, well, words of simple enthusiasm.
The latter warns us not to expect to make any money in this industry. But what’s probably most satisfying about The Stars Are Underground is how the artists themselves define this whole time with a sense of community. It’s almost politically incorrect to use the word “scene” these days, but whatever it was , this time and place, it was where connections were made that ring true to this day. The year 2000 has already seen several great Irish records, and all going according to plan, 2001 will be better again. The roots lie here in this film, and for those aware or interested in these facts, this is essential viewing.
A low-budget film about a low-budget scene. It won’t be forgotten quickly.”

Not On Tour es una banda formada por cuatro jóvenes de Tel Aviv que desde el 2008 empezaron a tocar aprovechando que sus respectivas bandas “principales” no estaban de tour. Cuando sus compañeros estaban de gira con sus otros proyectos (en la pequeña escena es muy normal participar en muchos grupos). A partir de esa unión improvisada fruto del puro entretenimiento y por placer— 4 álbumes, 5 tours y 8 años más tarde — los cuatros amantes del punk rápido parece que están aquí para quedarse. Y esperamos verlos de nuevo muy pronto.

Simple Plan – Vacation [HD HQ + Lyrics]

Simple Plan - Vacation [HD HQ + Lyrics]


i know a girl whos obsessed with a guy
she talks for hours and still tomorrow
she’ll call again and when he thinks that this could be the end,
she calls again
at six in the morning she waits at the door
he tells her to leave but still tomorrow shell be there again
she wont let go

cant you just go somewhere on vacation?
i could book your flight
and pack your bags
if you want
a one way ticket out of my life
watching you fly away
i never liked you

she dosent care if he trys to ignore
he runs away but still she follows
shell try again
she likes to think shell get him in the end

cant you just go somewhere on vacation?
i could book your flight
and pack your bags
if you want
a one way ticket out of my life
watching you fly away
i never liked you
i never wanted you
i never liked you
i never wanted you, whoa

cant you just go somewhere on vacation?
i could book your flight
and pack your bags
if you want
a one way ticket out of my life
watching you fly away
i never liked you
i never wanted you
i never liked you
im not in love with you

08 - Simple Plan - My Alien - No Pads, No Helmets...Just Balls (UK Edition) - 2003 [HD + Lyrics]

2003 – Simple Plan – No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls (UK Edition) – My Alien

“My Alien”

I’m sick of being alone, when are you coming home?
Just a glimpse of your face
I can remember smelling your hair, I’ll meet you anywhere
Somewhere that no one can retrace
Somewhere where no one will know our faces

She has two arms to hold me
Four legs to wrap around me
She’s not your typical girlfriend
She’s my alien
My alien

She knows when something is wrong, when something doesn’t belong
She can read in my mind
And she can be assured that with me, there is no conspiracy
Shes not wasting her time
She can take me to the place that she calls home,
in a spaceship that will someday be my own
Please take me to your leader
Tell her I will surrender
I will surrender


My alien [repeat 4x]

[Chorus (repeat 2x)]

I bought the astranauts kit
Now all I needs a rocket
My love, intergallactic friend
She’s my alien
