about

2013; The Summervilles release their debut LP "Twelve Ways To Fuckup Before Breakfast". The band attempts to reconcile the absurdity of mundane nostalgia with a world of social and political ineptness, oh and the impending zombie apocalypse (easier said than done) The album is completely D.I.Y; recorded, mixed and mastered by the band in a bedroom in west Melbourne.

Critical Reviews:

“Twelve Ways to Fuck Up Before Breakfast is a real punk record, with real working class grit running the whole way through it ... do whatever you can to get your hands on this record.“
-- Soundly Sounds | ryansaar.com

“You can expect from the album exactly what you would their live show. Stories of mates, girls, booze and a sprinkling of cuss words for good measure, The Summervilles’ debut is an ode to youth and living fast.”
-- All I Do Is Listen | allidoislisten.com

“I was sold from the first beat of “Sudden Death Casino.” The thrashing guitar and drum come in like a much-needed smack in the face.”
-- Music Defined | music-defined.com

“Fans of the Ramones will dig this album. Its rebellious without being super dark or heavy.”
-- Happy Magazine | Hhhhappy.com

"An action-packed punk extravaganza."
-- Show Me Something Different | showmesomethingdifferent.com

Track Name: Sudden Death Casino
it cuts so close
we all bleed out at the sudden death casino
we dont want it we dont need it
its no secret you can't beat it
lets burn our flags spit on their graves
we don't want it you can't comprehend
the shiny lights
your sugar fix
you paid your bribes
now we'll all suffer nicely
so deal the cards
dethrone the crown
lets spin the wheel and
watch the house tumble down
deck of cards floating in the yarra
pokies are on fire
roulette turning in its grave
it cuts so close
we all bleed out at the sudden death casino
Track Name: Spit It Out
spit it out i say, yeah
spit it out
seen her around town
great big smile she won't let you down
coloured hair, never plain
desire
big blue eyes i don't wanna miss
i need your loving can i steal a kiss
will you and i ever find the time
spit it out i say, yeah
spit it out
jenny says she's not the type
baby we haven't tried
i want you on the line
maybe can we find the time
Track Name: Once More, Without Feeling
living on indifference in deciding
starving from your thirst
but drowning in wine
hoping for a smile
to know i existed
I'm writing all the things
i wish i could right
once more without feeling
like we are so empty now
living on belligerence
out of nothing
gasping for your breath
I'm drowning in sight
fighting for a nod
to know i existed
staking out the graveyard
looking for life
once more without feeling
like we are so empty now
so we sing about
the things we cannot live without
Track Name: Can't Count On Me
oh I was over my head
was It something I said?
so quick to point fingers
without any point
you know we're hopeless tonight
but I'm hoping you find
a reason for staying
that isn't a bribe
we got nothin' to hide
got lost having a bad time
i got something to say
and its gonna be said
gonna be sad
i can't count on me
cause you'll get worn out
in doubt
Track Name: I'll Be Gone
you caught me
selfish but I've got the right
pleading guilty
just to stop the fights
baby lately there just aint no thrills
we all know it you were born to kill
she wants to stay here tonight
can't be too safe
ill be gone
tonight were frozen
glaring locked in time
counting heartbeats
ticking fills the night
your name a bottle of prescription pills
watch me swallow how you're all too real
she wants to stay here tonight
can't be to safe
i won't be there if you call and say my name
we'll be gone
Track Name: Going Steady?
so you're all out of love
hearts bled out now
you're so far out of touch
sometimes baby
it seems its all too much
pushing further
i think we're off the line
tripping over our own two feet in time
where we going?
sure you're running
clocks a ticking
our days are running down
baby i gotta know
are we going steady
were going steady right?
yeah she's my baby oh my caroline
heart still sown up
heart still sown up tight
yeah she's my girl
so far out of sight
Track Name: Moving Under
well i was never the type
to walk you late at night
moving under stormy skies
and i will be the man
who always holds your hand
moving under stormy skies
and oh i know we've grown too cold
were sitting on a lump of coal
i've lost my head
to the walking dead
being eaten alive by feelings
and thoughts on a bitter past
you eat my brain you've got no shame
your jaded heart your caviar
your bleeding neck you'll have that next
you want it all got no control
thoughts on a bitter past
Track Name: You're The Batteries End
whose gonna take me home
cause i can't drive
whose gonna save me from
myself when I'm headed out to the bend
well you wanna see you wanna
you wanna suit my needs we gotta
stay away from my friends
well the circus never ends
you want it all
you are the batteries end
Track Name: I Will Hold It True
something will go wrong tonight
under the brunswick sky
cause its uneven when
we are holding tight
and the clouds fall down
oh you said they might
everything to hold
and i will hold it true
between me and you
something must go right tonight
under this burning sky
cause its uneven when
we are holding tight
and the sun will rise
oh you sure look bright
everything to leave
and i'll believe in less
cause we're such a mess
and you got what you wanted
i don't believe its true
sold this town for your fat back pocket
and i can't stand the truth
cause its uneven when
we are holding tight
and the sun will rise
oh you sure look bright
give me anything to hold
and i will hold it true
i'll hold it true
between me and you
Track Name: Oil In Our Blood
they put the oil in our blood
and we bleed it and spill it
i dont wanna live with this around
painting the black gold in our thoughts
and my dear we cant shake it
i dont wanna see us all drown
oil in our blood oil in blood
coagulating
feeling frustrated
minds out of line
we've got no time
we've got the answer in our hearts
and my dear we can't shake it
i don't wanna live with this around
we see the headlights in the dark
and my dear we cant shake it
end up on the side of the road
type-o transfusion
oil in our blood oil in our blood
renal failure ignore all the dangers
bribes to get by
coagulating
feeling frustrated
minds out of line
we've got no time
Track Name: Save Those Memories
save save save save
all those memories
in a heart shaped box
with an air tight lid
getting on in all the off places
driving back from canada
do you remember the time
when we were young
water fights and console fun
i wanna be there again
different places and over again
i think that i can find the time
remember the night in the basement
i got this feeling i belong
spent our history now its gone
and so we're broke
save save save save
all those memories
feeling up coming down separation street
getting on in all the off places
driving back from canada
do you remember the time
when we were young
smoking stuff and burning some
Track Name: I Won't Be Alright
spilling blood in the neighbourhood
bleeding palms never felt so good
i wont be alright
we're alive but we're hardly breathing
lost our pulse just to find some freedom
i won't be alright
some nights they lead
down the wrong streets
and i can't seem to drive right
and we'll come out tonight
just like that other night
but i won't be alright
and we're just chemicals
not dead but fucking close
i won't be alright
