about

Spray Lancashire, UK

Ric and Jen were members of 21st century pop terrorists The Cuban Boys, who topped John Peel's Festive 50 and the UK singles charts.

Their offshoot project Spray predicted the electropop boom, unfortunately much too early for them to cash in. They released two albums in 2002 and 2006.

In 2016 they released their first full length studio album in 10 years - 'Enforced Fun'.

Track Name: I Always Wanted To Say "I Always Wanted To Say That"
Driving down the strip in a convertible it's a dream
T shirts with slogans and a gang who look suspiciously clean for the streets

Coquettishly waving at the cars that pass
Sharing our burgers and abusing staff
All my friends from central casting laugh
As we
Take our life
By the horns
Being free
Be ourselves
And we dance
Through the street

Causing
Mayhem, albeit quite restrained
Mayhem - parameters rule!
I always wanted to say "I always wanted to say that"
It implies anarchy
Mayhem, government approved
Mayhem, sanctioning the beat
I always wanted to say "I always wanted to say that"
I don't know what to believe anymore

We are all unique but in a most peculiar way
Garish individuals yet easily interchanged

At regular intervals a lesson arrives
To teach about growth within your personal life
They're all much the same, but then we're all much alike
So you
Take your life
By the horns
Being free
Be yourself
Just like me
Just like me

Causing
Mayhem, without agenda, just
Mayhem with no message at all
I always wanted to say "I always wanted to say that"
I'm the kooky one, see
Mayhem, we can all join in
Mayhem, with respect and esteem
I always wanted to say "I always wanted to say that"
It's witty without being remotely amusing at all
Track Name: Squabble At The Rotary Club
Everybody!
You want to be
The top dog
Permanently
And that consumes
Your waking hours
Until such time
That they're not waking hours

The human mind is an amazing piece of kit
But it's accepting nature doesn't really sit
With it's capacity for always being right
There'll be a squabble at the rotary club tonight

There'll be a quarrel over who said what to whom
There'll be a quibble over when you should say "whom"
There'll be some pettiness about some oversight
There'll be a squabble at the rotary club tonight

Everybody!
Loves inconsequence
And they're loving it
In the progressive tense
And you know
To win this time
Won't take
Too much thinking time

Now nit-picking over technicalities
And feeling pressure over trivialities
It all means that there is just one sure thing in sight
There'll be a squabble at the rotary club tonight

There'll be some bickering about a point inferred
There'll be recriminations over the dessert
There'll be a fracas over something misapplied
There'll be a squabble at the rotary club tonight
There'll be annoyance over yet-unknown offence
There'll be some stress over ambiguous expense
There'll be some sulking and a whispering campaign
There'll be a squabble at the rotary club again

Why is there so much violence in Britain today?
When people can't control themselves, it's moral/ social decay
We're on a downward spiral it's the end of the age
We're sinking deep into the mire of self destruction and rage

There'll be some fisticuffs and something will get spilt
There'll be a cry of "just forget it, you'll get killed"
There'll be a tussle it'll help to clear the air
There'll be a story to relate to the au pair
There'll be squabble at the rotary club tonight
Track Name: Twitter Campaign
Twitter campaign, twitter campaign
I'm gonna start my own twitter campaign

I'm a massive egotist with time on my hands
I'm a housebound sociopath - hear my demands!
I'm a Tory spin doctor who doesn't understand
All the ins and outs but someone said it's big in Japan

Twitter campaign, twitter campaign
I'm gonna start my own twitter campaign

Get the House of Commons painted aquamarine
Hype my band to number one hundred and eighteen
Claim that Charlie Sheen has fallen down a ravine
Tell a dozen people that you're in the canteen

Twitter campaign, twitter campaign
I'm gonna start my own twitter campaign

Boasting to my friends I'm at a gig that they're not
Modestly confessing I've a swanky new job
Oh, and by the way I'm in Marseilles on a yacht
Here's a picture of my dog, he's got a hat on.
Lol.

Twitter update, twitter update
I'm gonna publish my twitter update
Twitter campaign, twitter campaign
I'm gonna start my own twitter campaign

What happened to mystique? A little mystery in life?
I know too much about too much but none of it's worthwhile
We moan about CCTV, "they're spying day and night"
Well you surveille yourselves without infringing human rights

Outrage at the way the papers distort the news
Campaign for a dissident jailed in Timbuktu
To be honest, I'm not bothered, it's the least I can do
To make me feel important with a mouse click or two

Serious face, serious face
I'm gonna wear my serious face

The levels of banality we've recently reached
Are at levels we've not seen since the invention of speech
And giving extra outlets for the boring to preach
It's akin to evolution just admitting defeat

Twitter campaign, twitter campaign
I'm gonna start my own twitter campaign
Twitter campaign, twitter campaign
I'm gonna start my own twitter campaign
