about

All songs handwritten in a Bakery in Derby by Cheap Jazz
All songs were recorded between Spring and Autumn 2011
at Dubrek Studios, Snug Recording co, The House of Fun and Shepherd Towers, all in Derby.
The album cover is a nod to the great Ornette Coleman,who released the album "the shape of jazz to come" in 1959.We had many reasons for wanting to do this cover art, Another band we love are Clinic who also used a likeness of the album "Ornette!" for thier own album "Internal Wrangler". Another reason is CABLE "our all time influential derby band" did a pastiche of John Mayall's Blues Breakers album for thier first album cover.
And of course we all loved Refused's "The Shape Of Punk To Come"

about

Cheap Jazz UK

"Cheap Jazz are renowned for providing a set with "Twisty Turny Riffs and other devilry", and that they do but their live performance holds so much more. An impressive ambitious raucous set blending a structured balance of math rock, fun rock and post rock.
Cheap Jazz are without a doubt a refreshing band.
Must see live for you to truly embrace what they are all about."-circuitsweet.blogspot.com

Track Name: School (is a gateway drug)
By my admission, I'm trying to think but my brain won't let me make a move.
I'm undecided, I'm the last kick in a chorus line of excuses
Still i know what i came here for, you left the spare key under the doormat waiting for me to let myself in
but i got distracted again.

Sweet taste of violets, Waves crash behind us,
Arrivals of riffle shots.
Your in good hands!, i beg your pardon?
probably, i said "your in good hands"

Still i know what i came here for, you left the spare key under the doormat waiting for me to let myself in but i got distracted again.

How the hell can i be late again?
i'm falling out the door, i met you up around
half past ten, you hardly said a word.
You smelt like home on the garden last night
your slowly growing on me now i find.
Track Name: John Belululululushi
It started by, By the Argosy, She said "you've got a lot of tricks hidden up your sleeve"
She said "i never knew that you were so filthy"
but it would have gotten worse if you would have just kept up with him.

I never knew that you were so cruel
your tied to the tracks, in the end
now you walk sideways together
because your fine like bone china
you were quiet as a mouse
but if the snow fell much finer last night
id find it hard to leave the house.

I never knew that you were so cruel
your tied to the tracks, in the end
now you walk sideways together
I never knew that you were so cruel
your tied to the tracks, in the end
now you walk sideways on....
Track Name: Tiff
I'm not really where i'm supposed to be
one too many headaches and too much mystery
the landlords sleeping so i better be silent as the grave
Its not easy, but nothing ever is
I'd like to say it phased me but i'm not effected
i said sorry, thats not enough
i can tell by the tone of your voice.
Hey!
All the way we dream our days away
getting older, getting older
come and play under my duvet
getting older, getting older.

Boredom slowly eats away at me
although I'm feeling like I'm about to be
torn to pieces by plague of locust, piranha?
shall i tell them what your about to say
I'll steal your thunder
then your aeroplane
the candles burning at both ends but I'm well aware of that.

Hey!

All the way we dream our days away
getting older, getting older
Hide away regain some mystery
getting older, getting older.

Now i feel much better
more so than yesterday, I'll get some pleasure
from burning everything
now i hold that feeling so very tight
its the only thing we've got left
dust everywhere this place has got to be clean
to be safer because we got to be seen to be noticed
or to even be invited to a fight
your hands are cold tonight
its the Navy Rum and ice.
Track Name: Rope
Check for the pulse
open up the chest
don't put on the light
lets smoke a cigarette
its the darkness that got you down
shame we couldn't do it in the bright sunlight
now David didn't die on the battlefield
this calls for a glass with the bubbles, even though
just try to straighten out before they arrive.

watching through the swing door
a rope dropped in the kitchen draw
she never knows when shes being funny
He's a man with impatience for social conventions
, hes making his entrance
slowly through, through the room.

These hands will bring you great fame
so farewell to Phillip therefore champagne
Mrs Atwater's pissed again
Aprove?, you may and i do.

Now onto dessert still no word from D.K.
but chivalry rears his ugly head again
bind the books with the weapon as the metronome sways

Now who's that calling at the door
Cadell left a case that was never there before
with him in this condition your teasing my suspicions
so my right hand stays rested on the trigger as easy as serving food from a grave to pyramid wild into fantasy.
Track Name: The Trouble With Harry
Three shots from old faithful
a can masquerading as a rabbit
half a pack of cigarettes
for tortured Marlowe's bended knee
sketch harry, behind a tree sits the captain
waiting patiently to drag cadavours through
the leaves

Nice shoes Harry
Nice socks Harry
Nice shoes Harry
Nice socks Harry
Track Name: Unfun
I'm not that well read, or well traveled
but instead i can tell what goes on in your head
I'm feeling like i truly think that i get it this time

elope, go find yourself
folded in the photographs and put away in shoe boxes
and when you decide its time to get them out
you gave the other way a try
but as usual it didn't work
its not that bad its the universe
it turns in ways we cant control
we never know
we never should make lists of our conquests
just in case were wrong
I'm burnt, buried alive
but its not the kind of life id abide by
Track Name: 8, 6, 4, Desmond
Sorry if iv ruined all your plans
fumbling around with my hot and clammy hands
struggling with the things that i shouldn't struggle with
trying to give my love when there is nothing left to give and for what.......that's it.

Sorry that it took me so much time
its like the point of no return
another day another frown line
I'm looking out the window, see the moons still in the sky
sitting up in bed enjoying Steve Martin in "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid.

DESMOND!

Sorry if iv ruined all your plans
fumbling around with my hot and clammy hands
struggling with the things that i shouldn't struggle with
trying to give my love when there is nothing left to give and for what
