about

The Book Club Sheffield, UK

The Book Club aren't what you want, and aren't really what you need either. In fact, what you need, you never want, and what you want, you never need. But when winter begins to thaw and the electric curtain falls, what you want and what you need come closer than ever before. Their lips almost touch. That's where The Book Club will meet you. Legs akimbo. ... more

Track Name: Perspex Princess
The Book Club - "Perspex Princess"

You don't like me, do you?
You don't like me, do you?
'Cause I see straight through you,
Oh I see through you.

Is this the place where people come to die?
(Is this the place where people go when they are members?)
(Spineless hangers on and comical pretenders.)
If that's the case then won't you pass the knife?
(Is this the place where people go when they are members?)


Stop feigning interest,
Stop faking progress,
My persepex princess,
You ought to know this.

Is this the place where people come to die?
(Is this the place where people go when they are members?)
(Spineless hangers on and comical pretenders.)
If that's the case then won't you pass the knife?
(Is this the place where people go when they are members?)

Track Name: Somebody's Daughter
The Book Club - "Somebody's Daughter"

In a very beautiful city,
stands a very beautiful girl,
As you were running towards your departure gate,
She was running away from the world.

They said they'd change her fortunes,
Not the colour of her hair,
As though they come unto her window,
Not to ask for directions.

And where have all the family men gone?
And now she'll never trust no-one.

She probably came from the suburbs,
Of some forgotten town,
Desperate and destitute
And naive she was found.

A single bedroom apartment,
With a single window view,
It's right upon the riverside,
Where the streets are rarely silent.

And where have all the family men gone?
And now she'll never trust no-one.

But she's somebody's daughter just like you are somebody's son,
And if you knew the truth would it help you to put down the gun?

In a very beautiful city,
stands a very beautiful girl,
As you were running towards your departure gate,
She was running away from the world.

Track Name: The Irony Tower
The Book Club - "Irony Tower"

He sees the world from his window,
Up there in his chair in his irony tower,
If you step outside you get rained on,
If you go outside well you get ripped off.

He knows what he likes, likes what he knows,
Will give you cons, when asked for pros,
Got the same song, stuck on repeat,
For fifteen years, from fifteen weeks.

Knows what he likes, likes what he knows,
Will give you cons, when asked for pros.

He sees the world from his window,
Up there in his chair in his irony tower,
If you step outside you get rained on,
If you go outside well you get ripped off.

He knows what he likes, likes what he knows,
Will give you cons, when asked for pros,
Got the same song, stuck on repeat,
For fifteen years, from fifteen weeks.

Knows what he likes, likes what he knows,
Will give you cons, when asked for pros.

A fountain if not a waterfall of wisdom,
Collated by papers and crass magazines,
See I was once told that the government give them,
See I was once told that they were a disease.

He knows what he likes, likes what he knows,
Will give you cons, when asked for pros,
Got the same song, stuck on repeat,
For fifteen years...

You've got money so why are you drinking on Sunday?
Oh you've got money so why are you drinking on Sunday?

Track Name: Mr. K.
The Book Club - "Mr. K."

A year, is a long time,
A year, is a short time,
Some say you've changed, I think you're just the same,
I know it's more interesting, when you're around.

And Mr. K. you never show,
And Mr. K. you never show!

A year, is a long time,
Especially, when you're on the run,
The bailiffs came and when they said your name,
I said it gets complicated, when you're around.

And Mr. K. you never show,
And Mr. K. ah you never show,
They know your face and they want their doe,
But Mr. K. ah you never show!

Two dead bodies up on Chelsea Rise,
And if I say I'm sorry come on out tonight,
Two dead bodies up on Chelsea Rise,
And if I say I'm sorry come on out tonight.

But Mr. K. you never show,
But Mr. K. oh you never show!
