about

Recorded when we had an idea that everyone would pick a cover and we'd Record it. We did Summer Knights because Andrew Durno was always playing the intro and we thought 'let's get it out of his system' it became a great live track. Wrathchild was a concensus if memory serves me right (which it won't) and Booga Beazley picked 'I'm on Fire' which to this day is a fan favorite and always goes down gangbusters live. It also had HLAH playing on a roof top in Wellington for a video that Brian from Flying Fish production company mad after hearing the track. The irony is that the video was worth about $100,000 (it didn't cost that) while the track was recorded on Reel to Reel 8-Track with only 7 tracks working that only cost us our time.

Track Name: A Crying Shame
She walked past with a telling smile, whole town knew she was proud
Smoke stack boiling, echos rebounding
We stood a common ground

She swam the width and the depth of grand canyon in it's stead yeah
Horsefly whipping, echoes rebounding
We stood a common ground

I hung a horseback around my neck, even though it's all I could get
You gotta take what given at the end of the day
Otherwise it's a crying shame

She swam the width and the depth of grand canyon in it's stead yeah
Horsefly whipping, echoes rebounding
We stood a common ground

Simplicity's a game, it works in different ways
Simplicity's a game, otherwise it's a crying shame

If it aint broken, so don't fix it, you can take it
All the way


Simplicity's a game, it works in different ways
Simplicity's a game, otherwise it's a crying shame
Track Name: I'm on Fire
Hey little girl is your daddy home
Did he go away and leave you all alone
I got a bad desire
Ohhhhhhhhh, I'm on fire
Tell me now baby is he good to you
Can he do to you the things that I do
I can take you higher
Ohhhhhhhhhh, I'm on fire
Sometimes it's like someone took a knife baby
Edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley
Through the middle of my soul
At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet and a
Freight train running through the middle of my head
Only you can cool my desire
Ohhhhhhhhh, I'm on fire
