about

"That is from a fantastic new album by a UK band called The Bad Losers. It's on a Sommerville Massachusetts label called Equation. The song we heard was Those People, the album is called Easy and I think there is only a couple of hundred of these pressed so if I were you I would get on it, I would be like Todd-o-phonic Todd and get on it quickly cos yeah once people have heard that song i'm sure The Bad Losers are breaking the internet. So many great songs. It's a 15 track album, and the killers on this album are definately in double digits." - Todd-o-phonic Todd WFMU April 25, 2015.

about

The Bad Losers Bristol

The Bad Loser’s formed in 2004 due to a shared love of 60s Garage and Freakbeat.

Their recordings are made in a garden shed which resembles a small Working Men’s Club with carousal competing equally with musical creation.

In the comfort of this environment, the band have settled down to a long period of home recording in search of capturing an appropriate lo-fi sound.

Track Name: Easy
Everybody’s driving, going nowhere fast
Busy climbing the ladder
Cos no one wants to be last
I feel like getting away
I feel like spoiling the game

Cos if there is one thing I know is true
Too much life can be bad for you
That’s why I’m easy

Everybody’s running, just to stay the same
Minutes turn into hours
Hours turn into days
But I’ve opted out of the race
And I’m gonna be a disgrace

Cos if there’s one thing I’ll never be
The richest man in the cemetery
That’s why I’m easy

Everybody’s bitchin’,
About their little lives
Always blaming something
Sharpening their knives
But I’ve got a better idea
And I’m gonna get outta here

Cos if there is one thing I know is true
Too much life can be bad for you
That’s why I’m easy
That’s why I’m easy
Taking it easy
Real easy
Track Name: A Certain Something
She’s got a certain something
I¹ve never seen before
A certain magic
I’ve never seen before

Its six thirty in the morning
Baby we’ve been up all night
My body just wants to go to sleep
But I can¹t let her out of my sight

And I know what I feel
Makes me think maybe this is real
She’s got a certain something
I’ve never seen before

She’s got a certain feeling
I’ve never felt before
A certain feeling
Makes me come back for more

I phone my boss in the morning
And tell him that I’ve got some strife
I don’t like to lie
But this kind of night
Just happens maybe once in your life

And I know what I feel
Makes me think maybe this is real
And I can’t let her go
And I just don¹t care who knows

She calls me up in the morning
And my heart jumps in my mouth
Hurts so much and it feels so good
And I just can’t work it out

And I know what I feel
Makes me think maybe this is real
She’s got a certain something
I¹ve never seen before
Track Name: Gonna Find Her
Well when I was young, I always knew
I‘d find a girl, who’d love me true
But time goes by, it’s getting late
And she ain’t come, and still I wait, so

If I have to climb a mountain
If I need to break the law
If I need to cross the ocean
‘Til I reach a foreign shore

I’m gonna find her
I’m gonna find her

And I tell myself, it won’t be long
So many times, I’ve got it wrong
I won’t give in, I’ll never rest
I’ll settle for, no second best

Cos, I will go a million places
If I have to roam the world
Gonna search in every corner
‘Til I find that special girl

I’m gonna find her
I’m gonna find her
I’m gonna find her

And all the hurt, and all the pain
And all the tears, I cried in vain
Will be a dis-tant memory
And happiness will smother me

I won’t have to roam the places
I won’t need to search the world
Won’t be looking in every corner
Cos I know I’ve got that girl

I’m gonna find her
I’m gonna find her
I’m gonna find her
I’m gonna find her
Track Name: A Little Bit Of Time
She just needs a little bit of time
She just needs a little bit of time
She needs time to work things out
She needs time to think about
She just needs a little bit of time

She said she needs a little bit of space
She just needs a little bit of space
She needs space to spread her wings
And try and do some different things
She just needs a little bit of space

Sometimes I think she’s trying
To stop herself from crying
Sometimes I think she needs
A little time away from me

She just needs some time to be alone
She just needs some time to be alone
Time to be by herself
She don’t want nobody else
She just needs some time to be alone

Sometimes I think she’s trying
To stop herself from crying
Sometimes I think she needs
A little time away from me

She needs a little time
She needs a little time
She needs a little time
A little bit of time
Track Name: Haunted Girl
Little girl you look so haunted
In your eyes a thousand years
All your clothes are torn and out of date
Bet you’ve cried a million tears

See you walking through the city
Hanging out no place to go
Dirty hair and dirty fingernails
Little girl you move so slow

But some folks never get the breaks
And never learn by their mistakes
Such a shame

Never had someone to lean on
Never seemed to stick around
Didn’t have a friend to lead the way
All your life they’ve let you down

Little girl

And all the people pass on by
And go about their daily lives
Such a shame

Little girl ain’t seen you lately
Little girl she disappeared
Hope you find yourself a better place
Little girl you’ve got no fear
Track Name: Running Away From Life
I know a man who lives alone
Doesn’t have a telephone
He’s alright, running away from life

I know a girl who’s by herself
She doesn’t need nobody else
She’s alright, running away from life
She’s alright, running away from life

Everybody’s got ambitions
Everybody’s got their dreams
But what if the road you walk down
Ain’t what it seems?

I know a man who had it made
Then he blew it all away with a smile
Running away from life

Everybody’s got ambitions
Everybody’s got their dreams
But what if the road you walk down
Ain’t what it seems?

I know a man who had it made
Then he blew it all away with a smile
Running away from life
He’s alright, running away from life
It’s alright running away from life
It’s alright running away from life
Track Name: Don't Start Crying
Too bad, you tried so hard
To keep your little secret inside
But now your secret’s out
And baby you got nowhere to hide

So don’t start crying Cos you’ve been lying
There ain’t nobody else to blame
There’s no use trying Cos you’ve been lying
I guess that makes us both the same

You tried, to break my heart
With tears that don’t mean nothing to me
But now you’re on your way
I know how better off I will be

So don’t start crying Cos you’ve been lying
There ain’t nobody else to blame
There’s no use trying Cos you’ve been lying
I guess that makes us both the same

It’s time to face the fact
I caught you in the act
No time for talking, there’s nothing to say

You tried, to break my heart
With tears that don’t mean nothing to me
But now you’re on your way
I know how better off I will be

So don’t start crying Cos you’ve been lying
There ain’t nobody else to blame
There’s no use trying Cos you’ve been lying
I guess that makes us both the same

So don’t start crying Cos you’ve been lying
There ain’t nobody else to blame
There’s no use trying Cos you’ve been lying
I guess that makes us both the same
Track Name: Want You Now
I’ve been waiting for you
Since the first time that I saw you
But you keep on giving me the run around

I saw you on Sunday
Said you’ll call me up on Monday
Now you’re mamma’s telling me you can’t be found

Well it’s a crying shame
I need you just the same
I’ve done the best I can
Now I’m a worried man

I want you now
Not yesterday
Not a minute’s time
Well I want you now

You’ve got honey in your hips
But you keep giving me the slip
You’re in my sights but I can’t bring you down

If you’ll only let me in
I’ll never leave your side again
We’ll be the biggest thing in this whole town

We’ll I need you right away
I can’t wait another day
I can’t control my urge
You’ve got me on the verge

I want you now
Not yesterday
Not a minute’s time
Just anyway

I want you now
I want you now
I want you now
I want you now
Track Name: She's Coming Home
Well I ain’t got much to call my own
No car to drive in, no fancy home
Ain’t got no money to throw around
Each time I stand up they put me down

But I’ve got a purpose in my stride
I’ve got a love that I can’t hide
She’s coming home, she’s coming home
And she don’t care what people say
Won’t have me any other way
She’s coming home, she’s coming home

My cupboard’s empty my pockets bare
I’ve had some problems but she don’t care
Had so much bad luck sometimes I cry
I just can’t be like some other guy

But I’ve got a purpose in my stride
I’ve got a love that I can’t hide
She’s coming home, she’s coming home
And she don’t care what people say
Won’t have me any other way
She’s coming home, she’s coming home

My cupboard’s empty my pockets bare
I’ve had some problems but she don’t care
Had so much bad luck sometimes I cry
I just can’t be like some other guy

But I’ve got a purpose in my stride
I’ve got a love that I can’t hide
She’s coming home, she’s coming home
And she don’t care what people say
Won’t have me any other way
She’s coming home, she’s coming home

She’s coming home to me tonight
And everything will be alright
She’s coming home, she’s coming home
And she don’t care what people say
Won’t have me any other way
She’s coming home, she’s coming home

She’s coming home, she’s coming home
She’s coming home, she’s coming home
Track Name: Dilly Dally
You tell me that I’m holding back
cos I won’t meet your mother
Your sister makes me run a mile
and I don’t dig your brother
You tell me that there’s something wrong
cos I don’t wanna marry
And you won’t hang around too long
I always dilly dally

Tell you why
I’ll tell you why I’m like I am
I just ain’t your kind of man
I’ll never fit inside your plan
Certain qualities I lack
And maybe that is why I’m holding back

You tell me I’m a waste of time
I’ll never be a winner
Cos I don’t ever treat you kind
or take you out for dinner
I’m not like all the other guys
I never send you flowers
You tell me that I’ve got no heart
and I’m a dirty coward

It’s a shame
That I could never be that man
It’s impossible for me
And I hate domesticity
I don’t want to join the pack
And baby that is why I’m holding back

You tell me that I’m holding back
cos I won’t meet your mother
Your sister makes me run a mile
and I don’t dig your brother
You tell me that there’s something wrong
cos I don’t wanna marry
And you won’t hang around too long
I always dilly dally

Tell you why
I’ll tell you why I’m like I am
Pipe and sleepers ain’t for me
Bouncing babies on my knee
I just haven’t got the knack
And baby that is why I’m holding back
Track Name: Baby Walking
Well I saw my baby walking
Well I saw my baby walking
Well I saw my baby walking
But that’s alright with me

She told me that she loved me
She told me that she loved me
She told me that she loved me
And walked right out on me

She said she’d always stay
That’s why she went away
I don’t know where she’s been
Or if she’ll be back again

Well I saw my baby walking
Well I saw my baby walking
Well I saw my baby walking
But that’s alright with me

Well it was so long ago
She said she loved me so
But now she’s gone away
She’ll be back another day

Well I saw my baby walking
Well I saw my baby walking
Well I saw my baby walking
But that’s alright with me
But that’s alright with me
But that’s alright with me
Well that’s alright with me
Track Name: Marlena
Marlena, she’s got the devil in her soul babe
Marlena, she’s got the devil in her soul babe
Marlena, she’ll break your heart
and leave you cold babe

Summer sun refused to shine
The day that she was born
Her mama cried and everybody
Heard her daddy moan
Thunderbolts of lightning
Shot across a summer sky
A rooster crowed just seven times
And all the flowers died

Marlena, she’s got the devil in her soul babe
Marlena, she’s got the devil in her soul babe
Marlena, she’ll break your heart
and leave you cold babe

Well every man she’s ever known
Has slowly gone insane
No one’s ever seen her cry
She doesn’t feel no pain
Fortune teller told her
She would live an evil life
And when she dies old Lucifer
Will take her for a wife

Marlena, she’s got the devil in her soul babe
Marlena, she’s got the devil in her soul babe
Marlena, she’ll break your heart
and leave you cold babe
Track Name: Those People
Well Eddie learnt to steal when he was old enough to run
He didn’t make no money but he had a lot of fun
And Susie’s looking shattered cos she’s been up half the night
And Jimmy’s looking battered cos he got into a fight

That’s why I wanna be with those people
And I wanna be with those people

Joyce is getting older but she couldn’t give a damn
She dresses like a lady but she curses like a man
And Davey’s in the corner just staring at The Sun
He lost a lot of money on a horse that wouldn’t run

That’s why I wanna be with those people
And I wanna be with those people

Well I recall my Daddy told me
We’re as good as anyone
Don’t get ideas above your station
Don’t forget where you come from
Oh no!

And Billy gets a moody when he thinks about his life
He’s made a lot of money but he never got a wife
And everybody’s singing to some old forgotten song
And everybody’s happy cos we know where we belong

That’s why I wanna be with those people
And I wanna be with those people

Well I recall my Daddy told me
We’re as good as anyone
Don’t get ideas above your station
Don’t forget where you come from

That’s why I wanna be with those people
And I wanna be with those people
Track Name: We Went Wild
You know I had a bad week
I didn’t feel too good
I had a few things on my mind
You know I hate my job
But I love my life
So I called up a friend of mine

We went wild wild wild
We went wild wild wild
We went wild wild wild
We went wild wild wild

You know my baby called
She said I should be told
She said she was sick of trying
Try to change you’re ways
Try to treat me right
So I called up a friend of mine

We went wild wild wild
We went wild wild wild
We went wild wild wild
We went wild wild wild

You’re a bad little woman
You’re a bad little woman
Such a bad little woman
You’re bad little woman

You know I had a bad week
I didn’t feel too good
I had a few things on my mind
You know I hate my job
But I love my life
So I called up a friend of mine

We went wild wild wild
We went wild wild wild
We went wild wild wild
We went wild wild wild

Yeah!
Track Name: Living Around Here
It’s no good living round here no more
It’s no good living round here no more
Nobody goes out no more
Everybody locks the door
Nobody’s got a thing to spend
Nobody’s got a thing to lend
It’s no use living round here no more

No use trying round here no more
It’s no use trying round here no more
Nobody’s got peace of mind
We’re getting old before our time
There must be someplace else to go?
This is the only place we know
It’s no use trying round here no more

We used to think that life would be so easy
We never thought we’d end up being this way
It’s no use trying round here no more

It’s no good living round here no more
It’s no good living round here no more
Everybody locks the door
You don’t see them out no more
Politicians come and go
We’re the people they don’t know
It’s no use living round here no more
So bad, ain’t dying round here no more

Round here no more
Round here no more
Round here no more
Round here no more
