'You are the music while the music lasts.'

T.S. Eliot

Our Latest Single

"Symphony Of Silence"

is Out Now!

You’re behind my bars of rest

Finally I can hear my breath

As the silence Loudly screams

Here’s the harmony of dreams

 

Deafen sounds you’ve never heard

Silence says way more than words

Waves of sound and trembling anger

So much noise but still no answer

 

Hush Listen to my battle cry

As I sing you my lullaby

Come hear the defiance

Of my symphony of silence

 

Symphony of Silence 

Symphony of Silence 

 

Sound of vowels frustrate my peace

Now the silence will be unleashed

You’re the most absurd distraction

It’s only noise but there’s no action

'Today's News for Tomorrow's World' is our third album and a collection of our original songs, plus one of our favourite covers thrown in for good measure.

The album is the result of hard work, countless hours of song-writing and an equal amount of fun. Enjoy!

MNB, March 2018

"Tomorrow belongs to those

who can hear it coming."

David Bowie

 

Inspired by legends past and present, this is a band that works hard and play harder. 

Fully involved in the song writing process, these guys understand music and love it!

 

Their relaxed personas and seemingly effortless performances derive from many,

many hours of laughter, sweat and no tears!

"...We have come up with our own style & the songs we write are about daily things in our lives..."

 

Our Latest Tracks & Lyrics...

THE WORLD'S
GONE MAD

Written by MNB ©2017

The world’s gone mad

So says my Dad

What has the world come to

We need a breakthrough

We need a breakthrough

 

The world’s gone mad

It’s war after war

Just plain confusion

I don’t get it anymore

Not anymore

 

Kids gone crazy on their phones

Brexit breaking EU bones

Random people saying hi

Stranger danger is online

 

Terror’s happening on the street

Shooting bullets as a treat

Teachers and their quiffed back hair

Living life and they don’t care

Fake News

Written by MNB ©2017

How can we trust what we listen to

How can we know  that is the truth

Is this just another view

You can’t keep us in your Zoo

 

Why should we trust what we listen to

Why can’t we know the real truth

Is this just another view

You can’t keep us in your Zoo

 

Who can I trust now for all I know

You’re feeding us fake news

Who can we trust now for all we know

You’re feeding us fake news

Get Out Of Bed

Written by MNB ©2017

Wake up in the morning when I want

Get Out Of Bed! Get Out Of Bed!

Can bunk school if I want

I Play Dead! I Play Dead!

 

Hear Mum screaming off her head

Get Out Of Bed! Get Out Of Bed!

Someone's coming up the stairs

I Play Dead! I Play Dead!

 

Mum says get yeah get out of bed

Get Out Of Bed! Get Out Of Bed!

I want my breakfast in my bed

I Play Dead! I Play Dead!

 

I Play Dead! I Play Dead!

Just don't wanna get out of bed

I Play Dead! I Play Dead!

I don't care I'm not leaving here

This is my world I won't shed a tear

I don't care you're my biggest fear

This is my world  please get out of here

And I Play Dead!

Climate Change

Written by MNB ©2017

They say the world is in a melt down

They say the end is coming around

We cannot change but slow it down

We need to stop this fooling around

Cause the world is changingAnd I don’t want to be drowned

 

It is a race against the time It is a real life eco crime

We need to work together We can still change the weather

We can come up with measures And keep all our treasures

 

All we need is you to be aware Cause there’s no time to spare

All we need is you to be aware Too many gases in the air

We’ll keep on singing till you care

 

They say the time is running out

They talk about big floods and drought  

Can’t we see the science is true This is down to me and you

Cause the world is changing It is all over the news

 

Climate change is not just the weather

Please Mr Trump let’s make it better

Global warming is really not a hoax

So please help saving our planet & folks

 

We need to stop it together We got to make it better

We need to work together We can still change the weather

So Absurd

Written by MNB ©2017

Wash out pink and green colour hair

Phones not to be seen or heard

Tuck in shirt and do up ties

These school rules seem so absurd!

Absurd!

 

Boring gold and silver studs

I like the girls better with make-up

Why can’t boys  have ears pierced up

These school rules seem so absurd!

Absurd!

 

No Rolled Up skirts for the girls

Jet Black shoes are really nerd

Why can’t we call teachers dudes

These school rules seem so absurd!

 

Cuts no shorter than number two

Even girls get to have a bun

No shaved hair lines as a parting

It just takes out all of the fun!

Absurd, So Absurd!

Long Live The King

Written by MNB ©2016

Sometimes he wonders of the good in society

Sometimes he wonders where’s it’s gone

It’s way to easy to ignore choosing not to see

The life of others but our own

 

He sees the hungry and the poor 

Helps them on the way

He sees the lonely in the cold

He gives them hope without a pay 

Puts a smile on their face

He’s made a difference to this day   

 

He doesn’t need a throne 

He doesn’t need the fame

No one will ever know

The good his done today

 

Long live the king

The king without a crown

HELTER SKELTER

Written by Lennon & McCartney ©1968

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
Till I get to the bottom and I see you again

Do, don't you want me to love you
I'm coming down fast but I'm miles above you
Tell me, tell me, tell me, come on tell me the answer
Well, you may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

Helter skelter, helter skelter
Helter skelter

Will you, won't you want me to make you
I'm coming down fast but don't let me break you
Tell me, tell me, tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

Look out
Helter skelter, helter skelter
Helter skelter
Look out, 'cause here she comes

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
And I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
And I get to the bottom and I see you again, yeah, yeah

Well do you, don't you want me to make you
I'm coming down fast but don't let me break you
Tell me, tell me, tell me your answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

 

"The old believe everything,

The middle-aged suspect everything,

The Young know everything"

This is our second CD...

It is a result of hard work and perseverance. 

When we started out on our journey, we were told by many that we were ‘too young’ and got turned down a lot. Well, we didn’t give up.

By the time you read this, we will have played over 60 gigs at all sorts of venues; from music festivals to charity events, from garden parties to film festivals! We are proud of every song we write and release, after all, they are about our lives and are our voice in the world!

So here’s to all who believed in us, and to those who made it harder too – otherwise we wouldn’t be here. Enjoy the epic sounds of the MAGICIAN’S NEPHEW BAND!
