WAR BABY Vancouver, British Columbia

Booking: warbaby8@gmail.com

Management: terry@thenoisefloor.ca

Members: Kirby, Brock, Jon

What would happen if AmRep bands in the '90s were obsessed with disentangling pop sensibilities from their knot of noise? Vancouver's War Baby is exactly that: one part grunge ugliness, one part perfect pop pitch, two parts noise rock abandon. It's new wave for a disfigured world.

Track Name: Melting Witch
If the torch is real then the light is fake,
If the torture's real, then the fight is made,
and if four is five then i promise to sway,
I will be the blade, i will be the frame, i will be the blame

Chorus:

Feed a poison rabbit to a bundle of snakes, snake eater's belly ache,

Keep a rotten plug in the silverfish drain, won't make them dissipate,

No one's gonna rock my black cradle grave, no one's gonna kill my itch,

Would you thrive in a desert like you've thirsted in a lake or would you melt like a melting witch?

When you opened up to my orchid entrails,
Saw a coven of witches through a wall of scales,
So i drew a bucket the size of a lake,
Melting witch, real pain is relatively fake.

Chorus.
Track Name: Drown
Azured and self unemployed,
With new translucent ploys.

Perched upon undead scarecrows,
with nowhere left to go.

Fall like feathers into mulch,
in unrequited love.

Spring down to a death gulch,
with birds of prey above.

Chorus:
I won't drown- now
or ever again

I'll turn around- now
and start it again

I see where you're coming from,
My ad-nauseam

Arrange the right dance and song,
to make it go wrong.

Wrong a right, black as white,
Live like day is night.

I won't drown- now or ever again
I'll turn around- now and start it again

We're a fire that never burned,
A lesson never learned.

We're a fire that never burned,
A lesson never learned.
Track Name: Put It
Put out, put out, put out
what you get in

Put off, put off, put off
what you're dreading

I would never put you down,
Put you off, or put you on,
I just couldn't put it out

I could never put you on,
Put you off or put you down,
I just couldn't put it out.
Track Name: Belly Ache
I fix to break,
Just to see your belly ache

Fix up to break,
Just to see your belly ache

Alpha bettered,
Strength in letters,
Tarred and Feathered,
Tarred and Feathered

Over-weathered,
Tattered tethered,
Tarred and Feathered,
Tarred and Feathered.

Chorus

Useless caboose,
Acutely obtuse,
Unamused muse,
Unamused muse.

Never gets bored,
With losing sores,
My electric,
Umbilical cord.

Chorus

Tarred and Feathered
Tarred and Feathered

Nowhere man's land,
See through helping hand,
Equal to or less than,
Barred from the ban.

Dead blood orange rind,
Squeezed up, bone dry,
What's mine is never mine,
Used up feel fine.
