about

Hartford, CT's dynamic duo, SHU-SHO return with "FATCAMP". An 80's flavored, 25 track lo-fi, soul rock candy odyssey guaranteed to put hair on your hair (gel included, of course). Giovanny Blanco and Jaswho? have mastered their own non-retro retro sound by combining their love for genre defying artists like Prince, Beck, Ween and Cafe Tacuba with old school songwriting techniques. But no tongue in cheek or ironic tributes here. This is the real deal.

SHU-SHO built this city on Rock and Soul using early hip-hop cassettes as bricks, melted 12 inch vinyl dance records as cement and doors made out of classic rock 8 track tape shells. Full of funky little ditties about relationships gone sour and addictions gone sweet, "FATCAMP" is a journey that flows inward as much as it flows out. Dos CD's. Left and right. Side A and Side B. Simpson and Bruckheimer. Tenspeed and Brownshoe. Listen for yourself and then listen again (you need to give yourself a second opinion).

SHU-SHO's Blanco and Jaswho? (together formally known as Spigga) have been bringing supermarket beats to funk rock radio swap meets ever since they met in Hartford's West End where Blanco was stepping outside of a friend's house and Jaswho? was across the street on his porch.

A couple of Wasup's quickly turned into a discussion of the following hollowed subjects:

Which were the best unreleased Prince songs ("Movie Star", Old Friends For Sale" and "Moonbeam Levels" were often mentioned)?

How Ozzy was the better singer for Sabbath but Dio had the best album (Heaven and Hell).

And, who had seen "The Idolmaker" more times (we won't say who but we'll tell you that combined they had seen it 57 times).

Surprisingly, both went to the same High School (The Pub) and lived around the corner from each other but never met.

Two aspiring musicians walk into a bar...

Fate was funktified and the fellas decided to meet the next day to record their very first song using two boomboxes. Four track recorders were for the rich and recording studios were places they had only seen on the inside of LP's covers. So, with one boombox playing the first recorded track of maybe a drum machine and/or hand claps, the other boombox was recording casio keyboards, unmic'ed vocals and out of tune guitars that were added on with each try. Call it "The Eternal Wall of Hiss". It was delicious.

They played this masterpiece to the only guy they knew who played bass like it oughta should, Jaswho's cousin' "MyBassIsTight" (real name John - but you gotta stand out from all the other John's in the world, right?). John, I mean MyBassIsTight's response was to drive them around town in his Cutlass, and show off the ghetto wonder twins to his friends who owned better recording setups (yes, four track recorders). Most were scared off by the appearance of these two, especially those who didn't like runny eggs touching bacon on their breakfast plates. What would you do if Joey Ramone and Hendrix showed up at your door? Well, you say that NOW but...

Blanco and Jaswho? continued recording through the years, mostly while playing in separate bands in far away states. The two would get together sporadically and record mini albums for their own pleasure. Using different names every time (something misspelled like "Twynz"), they'd play some of the recordings to unsuspecting friends at parties to amuse them. Encouraged by their responses the two would go back and cook up some more grooves. Even those just wanting to party or get some action would stop mid act to say a nice thing or two about the music. That's the power of music, the ability to make anyone stop and go, "yeahhhhh". Their creative output didn't stop there, music videos were crudely shot and edited using cameras the size of gymnasts and edited from one VCR deck to the other, glitches and all. Sound and vision we're always gettin' it on. Always.

It was time to take it to the next level. Having other listeners besides their girlfriends and innocent party goers.

In the early 2000's things became official. Having moved on to different cities on the West coast (LA and SF) they began working as "Spigga", writing songs for soundtracks and other artists. Eventually, they released their own album "05105: The Mixtape" a shout out to their old home town, Hartford. These guys had put down an impressive amount of songs to tape by this point but didn't have any live performances to back them up. Or a band for that matter.

After a few shows many talented souls got on and off the bus and the boys weren't convinced that playing out was going to be their thing (despite glowing reviews wherever they went). That all changed when they were joined by their old friends; MyBassIsTight (now a Coast Guard Fireman), the beautiful Carla Pereira (another Hartford High survivor) and Jersey journeyman, Darren "D" Lolk (guitarist from one of Blanco's first bands) to put the SHOW in SHU-SHO. Extensive touring followed where sweaty sock stink filled vans broke down and were quickly replaced with fairly fresher ones (making that "new car smell" a thing of the absolute immediate past every time).

After taking some time to pursue other projects, albums, movies, and babies, SHU-SHO decided it was time for a follow up. Having lived a little and loved a lot and being inspired by the ups and downs of their lives and the lives of those around them, songs began writing themselves (and how do you copyright that?). "Fatcamp" was the name that stuck because of the idea of going to a place where you shake and sweat off all those extra things that we don't need and hold us down. An "Uptown" where you can set your mind free and get your body hot but this time with existential cupcakes and other treats to worry about. Wondering how and where to find the duckets to record and complete this opus, SHU-SHO launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to bring "Fatcamp" to the world. A year later and 50 or so songs whittled down to 25 and this baby was ready to roll.

It's now time funk up or funk out. Your choice. We just ask is that you sweat with them.

"Hi, our name is SHU-SHO and we're funkaholics".

Welcome, SHU-SHO. Welcome.

It's time for FATCAMP to begin because underneath it all we're all stars.

Let's do this.

Track Name: SHU-SHO - "Skin I'm In (Fatcamp)"
SKIN I'M IN (FATCAMP)

A mi no me gusta la TV
It's hard for me to find the truth in this reality
A mi no me gusta la radio
Too much R&B and not enough soul
A mi no me gusta el cine
They made the movie once why do it again
A mi no me gusta el internet
Because I need to see you, hear you, touch you, feel you
A mi no me gusta la prensa
It's your job to inform not to insinuate
A mi no me gusta la escena
Here just to be seen and work on the art of hate

CHORUS
It's just a side effect of the skin I'm in
I've worn it just a little too long
It's hard to get by with just one face
Being honest only gets you so far

A mi no me gusta religion
I believe in faith but not in war
A mi no me gusta la gente
Lie, cheat and steal but damnit, baby bubba we're still friends?
A mi tu no me gustas no me gustas tu
Never did, never will but guess what I like your shoes

CHORUS
What you smell is the stench of the skin I'm in
I think I'm stretched a little too far
It's time for fatcamp to begin
'Cause underneath it all I know I'm a star

Compared to before there is so much more but all of it ain't half as good.
So tell me now where do we go, from being down so low, baby.
Dame la chuleta que esta por la maceta, page con la tarjeta de credito espiritual.
I need to be rocked, rocked, rocked to sleep.
Turn off the alarm 'cause I'm done.

CHORUS
It's just a side effect of the skin I'm in
I've worn it just a little too long
It's hard to get by with just one face
Being honest only gets you so far
What you smell is the stench of the skin I'm in
I think I'm stretched a little too far
It's time for fatcamp to begin
'Cause underneath it all I know I'm a star

BRIDGE
A little tune up and I'll be fine.
I will sweat the pain away, away. Work out!
Constant insecurity. (Shake it off)
Self inflicted mind disease. (Shake it off)
The good times and the bad. (Shake it off)
All the things I never had. (Shake it off)
Why failure's been friendly. (Shake it off)
Why everyone offends me. (Shake it off)
The cost of being free. (Shake it off)
The price for being me. (Shake it off)
For living in the past. (Shake it off)
For all the love that never lasts. (Shake it off)
For all the liars. (Shake it off)
For chasing fires. (Shake it off, Shake it off, yeah)

CHORUS
It's just a side effect of the skin I'm in
I've worn it just a little too long
It's hard to get by with just one face
Being honest only gets you so far
What you smell is the stench of the skin I'm in
I think I'm stretched a little too far
It's time for fatcamp to begin
'Cause underneath it all I know I'm a star
It's just a side effect of the skin I'm in
I've worn it just a little too long
It's hard to get by with just one face
Being honest only gets you so far
What you smell is the stench of the skin I'm in
I think I'm stretched a little too far
It's time for fatcamp to begin
'Cause underneath it all I know I'm a star
Track Name: SHU-SHO - "Special Eyes"
SPECIAL EYES

My life is wonderful, my life is grand
but there is something I just can't comprehend
something to apprehend (it's got the upper hand)
you bring me pleasure you bring me joy
you give me a bliss that I cannot fully enjoy
sometimes it's easier to destroy

CHORUS
Your love is everywhere
and I'm gonna lose it, I'm gonna mess things up
I know how much you care
but I'm gonna lose it, I'm gonna mess things up
Fairy Tales cannot compare to all the happiness we share
but I'm gonna lose it, I'm gonna mess things up with you
It's just what I do

I can't ignore it cause it's soon gonna blow
Tried to control it but it just keeps letting me know
that it's time to go and I don't want to let you go, let you go
sooner or later I will make that mistake
I'll try to fix it but this time it'll be to late
our perfect picture will break

CHORUS
Your love is everywhere
and I'm gonna lose it, I'm gonna mess things up
I know how much you care
but I'm gonna lose it, I'm gonna mess things up
Fairy Tales cannot compare to all the happiness we share
but I'm gonna lose it, I'm gonna mess things up with you
It's just what I do

BRIDGE
It's not so complicated, I take what's pure and contaminate it.
I'm just a little boy with a brand new toy.
I'm gonna break it, I'll break it, I'll break it til it's broke and gone.
It's just what I do.

CHORUS
Your love is everywhere
and I'm gonna lose it, I'm gonna mess things up
I know how much you care
but I'm gonna lose it, I'm gonna mess things up
Fairy Tales cannot compare to all the happiness in here.
but I'm gonna lose it, I'm gonna mess things up with you
It's just what I do
Your love is everywhere
and I'm gonna lose it, I'm gonna mess things up
I know how much you care
but I'm gonna lose it, I'm gonna mess things up
Fairy Tales cannot compare to all the happiness we share
but I'm gonna lose it, I'm gonna mess things up with you
It's just what I do
It's just what I do
It's just what I do
Track Name: SHU-SHO - "Señora"
SEÑORA

Soy el cazador and you’ve been runnin’ circles ‘round the pack
Soy comandante and you’ve been waiting for the right command
Te necesito more than you can ever understand
Te hare una oferta and I will meet each and every demand
Lo que yo quiero is to legalize your contraband
Y te lo digo cause I’m the baddest spigga in the last
BREAKDOWN TO LOVE

CHORUS
Dile a you mama y a you papa que te voy a llevar
Dile a you mama y a you papa que te voy a llevar
Dile a you mama y a you papa que te voy a llevar a la casa
Would you be my, would you be my…
Would you be my, would you be my…
Señora

Este es el trato but there’s no contract for you to sign
El compromiso is something that you can’t ever deny
Lo que tenemos you can’t kill it if you tried
No sera facil but there’s no better way to die
BREAKDOWN TO LOVE

CHORUS
Dile a you mama y a you papa que te voy a llevar
Dile a you mama y a you papa que te voy a llevar
Dile a you mama y a you papa que te voy a llevar a la casa
Would you be my, would you be my…
Would you be my, would you be my…
Señora

BRIDGE
Is there something bigger than love...
Is there something bigger than love...

Breakdown to love, breakdown to love.
Would you be my, would you be my...
Breakdown to love, breakdown to love.
Would you be my, would you be my...
Breakdown to love, breakdown to love.
Would you be my, would you be my...
Breakdown to love, breakdown to love.

Track Name: SHU-SHO - "Burnt Sugar"
BURNT SUGAR

I see the razor shine like a valentine that you made for me
I hear the window call when you hit the hall with your easy key
I feel an ocean grow full of undertow where you used to be
I guess that's two of us who are serious about leaving me

CHORUS
Smoke and cheap thrills, bars and motels
just the bare necessities
night games, no strings, dead angel wings
you're my perfect enemy

You make a slight return and I touch the burn of sweet apathy
You toss a love grenade and the sound it makes pixelates me
you prepare my alibi as you say goodbye and I feel less crazy
you walk right out the door and I lose the floor but it doesn't faze me

CHORUS
Smoke and cheap thrills, bars and motels
aren't what they used to be
night games, no strings, dead angel wings
and you get the best of me
Smoke and cheap thrills, bars and motels
just the bare necessities
night games, no strings, dead angel wings
you're my perfect enemy
Smoke and cheap thrills, bars and motels
aren't what they used to be
night games, no strings, dead angel wings
you're my perfect enemy
Track Name: SHU-SHO - "El Greatest"
EL GREATEST

Tuve un tiempo perdido un poco lejos de ti
(gimme that beat back, gimmie that, gimmie that)
En esa eterna batalla entre lo que soy y lo que fui, fui, fui
Gimmie that beat back, gimmie that gimmie gimmie ooh
No hay tiempo pa cocinar pero esto se va freir
Gimmie that beat back, gimmie that gimmie gimmie ooh
No hay quien me pare, no hay quien me pare que los buenos me van a seguir
(gimme that beat back, gimmie that, gimmie that - whatchu got?)

Te digo ahorita y pa' mi eso va despues
Tu estas detras pa'lante, to' tu vaina 'ta al revez
Te voy a ponchar, te voy a pintar
(con la mejor pintura)
Nunca digo que de esa agua no beberé
No he perdido si no esta fue que lo deje
No te hice plancha solo te planie
(la mejor revancha)

CHORUS
Don't say it (no) Don't try it (no)
I don't want to start a riot and you don't want to start this war
(no lo intentes, no, no lo intentes)
Don't even think it (no) don't incite it (no)
It be best if you kept quiet
'cause I'm the Greatest and I need not say more

Si se fue la luz alguien prendio esta vela
(gimme that beat back, gimmie that, gimmie that)
Si tengo un jumo es porque adentro soy puro candela
(gimme that beat back, gimmie that, gimmie that)
Ven agarre este ritmo que probando es que se guiza
(gimme that beat back, gimmie that, gimmie that)
Te pondre a sudar mas que un ladronazo en misa
(gimme that beat back, gimmie that, gimmie that)

Yo soy el dueño y tu eres el inquilino
Si no sueltas lo que es mio me llamaran asesino
Te ensañare como en de verdad
Es que se hace esta vaina
Estos moños gueños se han jalao y aqui estoy
Si saco puños es para amagar e' a dar que voy
Ayer fui tiguere y un leon es lo que soy
De borojol a haina

CHORUS
Don't say it (no) Don't try it (no)
I don't want to start a riot and you don't want to start this war
(no lo intentes, no, no lo intentes)
Don't even think it (no) don't incite it (no)
It be best if you kept quiet
'cause I'm the Greatest and I need not say more

No vengas con cuentos que lo tuyo es lo que 'ta
A mi tambien me gusta lo nuevo no solo lo de los tiempos de atras
Pero hay que saber de la historia para poder afincar
Si es con los pies en la tierra es que uno puede saltar

CHORUS
Don't say it (no) Don't try it (no)
I don't want to start a riot and you don't want to start this war
(no lo intentes, no, no lo intentes)
Don't even think it (no) don't incite it (no)
It be best if you kept quiet
'cause I'm the Greatest and I need not say more
No lo digas (no) Ni lo Pienses (no)
No quiero que te arrepientes
Yo soy el gran luchador
No te atreves, ni lo intentes
Que te rompere los dientes
Porque en esto yo soy el mejor
Track Name: SHU-SHO - "Beatdown"
BEATDOWN

There’s not a day that goes by without wondering why some people mess with me
(don’t mess, don’t mess, don’t mess with love and happiness)
My only goal every day is to see that things are ok with my folk and my family
And when the day is through I’ll even look after you

Am I crazy about those around me, Matilda and her momma and the Spigga family
tree they keep me happy (look at the smile on me)
That’s cause my baby’s alright she sleeps through the night and dreams of a king
and queen and fuzzy things and the king is I, the protector
You cross the line and you pay the fine and I ain’t talking about money, sucka

CHORUS
You get a beatdown if you mess with me or with anybody in my family
You get a beatdown if you play with me cause you don’t want to see me angry

Don’t get me wrong I’m not the violent type,

Track Name: SHU-SHO - "My Baby"
MY BABY

Feeling kinda sick about it,
there’s no way to get out when it keeps on chasin me
cause there really is no point in hanging on to washed up memories
so I try to get around it but I just keep trippin on who I’m supposed to be
am I just another sucker in the rain waiting on delivery

CHORUS
and on 186th, modern day crossroads place your bets
am I going all in or will I pull back in the stretch
gotta think about my baby
salesman squeeze on the 5 alive suckin’ on the fire kills the cold inside
so far from myself that it feels like homicide
shoulda thought about my baby
shoulda thought about my baby, baby
shoulda thought about my baby, baby

I’m so tired of lying about it I’ve been doin’ it so long even I start to believe
Everybody knows the truth the jokes on me and no one’s laughing
I gotta do something about it and I don’t I’ll lose what is left of my family
I’m in the corner and the bell’s about to ring – 12th round tragedy

CHORUS
Like the kid in the candy store keeps on eating when they say no more
Got sugar on the brain and my belly’s way past sore
shoulda thought about my baby
need more cash gotta call collect for the million dollar movie on a 10 buck set
can’t hit rock bottom when they ain’t no rock left
shoulda thought about my baby
shoulda thought about my baby, baby
shoulda thought about my baby, baby
shoulda thought about my baby, baby
shoulda thought about my, shoulda thought about my

Track Name: SHU-SHO - "Listen"
LISTEN

I told you before, I told you twice
I'm not always this cool, I'm not always this nice
What you need to do is change your bad attitude
I need you to listen

You tell all your friends about the things we do
then you wonder why they're looking crazy at you
stop pretending you don't know what we're going through
I need you to listen

So open your eyes, take a good look around
is this really what you dreamt about?
Are you really happy with the life you've found
I need you to listen

Your cryin' eyes, it's such a shame
you're pointing your finger finding someone to blame
What you don't know is this ain't a game, no it ain't
You need to listen

There once was a time I can barely recall
Our love was strong, we had no problems at all
I just need you to see what you're doin' to me
I need you to listen

(backgrounds: I need you to)
When I look in your eyes I know deep down inside
you don't want this to end
so why do you pretend every thing's fine
when you know, when you know we're running out of time
if you'd cast me out to see I would understand
but I'm standing on the edge with an outstretched hand
pull me back in, and let us begin
I just need you to...
Let me talk to you like I used to do
and explain what's on my mind
what we had was true and there's no reason to
leave this all behind and things will be better
from now on forever together
Track Name: SHU-SHO - "I Can't Talk Right Now"
I CAN'T TALK RIGHT NOW

Rockets flying past, rockets fly so fast.
Your rocks hit my windowpane. I hear you out there, somewhere
Waiting for me to communicate, to communicate. But...

The radio is playing songs we hate.
I pretend to know the words even to the ones I've never heard, 'cause...

Do you regret the lies you said out loud.

I'm too young, I'm too dumb, I'm too proud, I'm too short,

Track Name: SHU-SHO - "One Cut"
ONE CUT

Here we are once again, playing friends, just the two of us
with no idea of what to make of it
If it's just a game please tell me what should we be calling it by
If we gotta name it ain't worth the ride
We can take it slow but I know if we take it easy
then easily we'd let it go, it's just the way the story goes and
I'm always getting off and getting out at the same old stop
This time I want to take it to the end of the line

CHORUS
One cut deserves another
Are we breaking up or stickin' to 'cause finding out is really hard to do
One heart will break the other
Unless we find a way to make it through, make it through me and you

How we met was less than fate more like a ten car pile up accident
Even destiny can take a hit
You walked away unscathed and I picked what was left of me up
Some smiles can be so hazardous
If I was smarter I would refuse to start of fights I'm told I'll lose
but like a stubborn match sometimes I need a second scratch to light the sky
And people wonder why I gave my love to the girl with the gasoline heart

CHORUS
One cut deserves another
Are we breaking up or stickin' to 'cause finding out is really hard to do
One heart will break the other
Unless we find a way to make it through, make it through, make it through
One cut deserves another
Breakin' up, breakin' down, breakin' through, breakin' down and out
One heart will break the other
We need find a way to make it through, make it through me and you

BRIDGE
Some things just can't be explained and if they are they just come undone.
So let's stop talking about it.
Until we can shout it let's escape and live on the run.
Let us live as one.

One cut. (yeah) One soul. (yeah) One cut deserves another. (One cut deserves)
One love. (I know, I know I do) One goal. One cut deserves another. (Yeah)
(One love) One life. (let me tell you something) One dream.
(let me tell you something) One cut deserves another. (What you gonna do about us)
(any time that I'm out away, I wonder how do I get through the day)
One heart. One. One cut. (What I do, what I do) One cut. (What I do)
(without you) One cut deserves another (to get through)
(what am I gonna do, what am I gonna do) One heart will break the other
(I know I deserve your love, your love) One cut deserves another
(doin' it for love, love, love, love, love , love , love, love)
One heart will break the other
One cut. One.

THE DEVIL IN ME

Don't do this to me
Please don't let go of me
I beg you don't do this to me
I'll do my time

Some call it fire , I call it soul
I've known desires but no control
Don't do this to me
I might be lost but not astray my heart's in the right place
but my hands get in the way

CHORUS
ah-ah-ah-ah It's just the devil in me
ah-ah-ah-ah set me free

Don't do this to me
I have my faith but I don't always believe
Cause my madness has it's methods
and those methods have their means
there's a river of good intentions
and I'm drowning in the stream

I've got heaven in my pocket
I've got Hell under my feet
there's mistakes that I've forgotten
and there's those that I repeat
I've caused my share of pain
but it's mostly to myself
I'm still standing here because of you and no one else
I'm still standing here because of you and no one else

so, don't do this to me
you're gonna miss me when I'm gone
don't make me leave you all alone
don't do this to me

CHORUS
ah-ah-ah-ah It's just the devil in me
ah-ah-ah-ah set me free

I don't let the drama bring me down

Before you throw the trash you pick it up
You know complainin' never paid no bills
someone's got to pay for all them pills

Well, I do alright but then there is my health (cough)

cause what comes around goes around, goes around comes around woo!

You need to take a good look at yourself
been down so long that you are someone else
You want a miracle, what you need is soap
Change is good but you can't live on hope

CHORUS
So get up or shut the funk up
So get up or shut the funk up
So get up or shut the funk up
So get up and do what you do...

Track Name: SHU-SHO - "A Million Miles Away"
A MILLION MILES AWAY

Why's it so hard to turn the page (turn the page)
Have we run out of chapters
Stuck on a broken phrase
Like an old scratched record
Is it the needle that needs a change?
Or do you heed a new tempo?
If the story remains the same
Why do I recognize so little?

All I need is a simple explanation.
You can't remove the root without rocking the foundation.
And here is where I hear the earth about to shake.
(here is where I hear the earth about to shake)
I used to know but now I just don't get you
The few words used between us have been lost in the translation
The melody is leaving and the music is about to fade.
(baby don't fade from me)

CHORUS
You're a Million Miles Away
and I think I'm gonna stay right here
Cause I'm better off alone
(I'm better off alone)
You're a Million Miles Away
and I think I'm gonna stay right here
Cause I'm better off alone
(I'm better off alone)

Always thought that it would all end a blaze
Not a fog of smoke signals
And now I'm hanging on your poker face
For the next reveal
I'm sustaining on the old days (old days)
Cause it's really hard to let go
You've been going through a better phase
As in a whole lot better out the front door

All I see is that there's no containing
You say your mind is here but your eyes are contemplating
I know that things are about to change
(everything's about to change)
I feel the same as when I met ya
The only thing that's different is a slip in your affection
So tell me now, why the hell should I try to alter your direction
when you're already there

CHORUS
You're a Million Miles Away
and I think I'm gonna stay right here
Cause I'm better off alone
(I'm better off alone)
You're a Million Miles Away
and I think I'm gonna stay right here
Cause I'm better off alone
(I'm better off alone)

BRIDGE
I've always had to struggle for what was mine
(and you know, you know I never try to give up)
I was good for the work, I was good for the time
(I wasn't perfect but damn, I know you know that I tried)
Just to please you, I tried to appease you
I let you live inside of my soul
But this love's a two way street and you don't want to drive.
Now, neither do I.

CHORUS
You're a Million Miles Away
and I think I'm gonna stay right here
Cause I'm better off alone
(I'm better off alone)
You're a Million Miles Away
and I think I'm gonna stay right here
Cause I'm better off alone
(I'm better off alone)
You're a Million Miles Away
and I think I'm gonna stay right here
Cause I'm better off alone
(I'm better off alone)
You're a Million Miles Away
and I think I'm gonna stay right here
Cause I'm better off alone
(I'm better off alone)
Alone

Track Name: SHU-SHO - Meet Me At The End Of The World
MEET ME AT THE END OF THE WORLD

Hello it's been a while since your parlor smile has graced my monkey face
Red hair like power lines, eyes that undermine any chance to leave this place
It's been years since I saw you last, more than time has passed hope to never ever count the days
With a shake you a erase the facts and a pair of jacks erase me

We escape into the night and with fear and delight I remember the old routines
With my sweet Adelaide the mistake is made when we leave the crime of the scene
I'm left to your own device a seraphic slice then the heaven's start to bleed
When you start ripping pages that were written seconds ago I know the fall is shaping

CHORUS
The key to dancing with fire is to never get too close to the flame
With matchstick legs and a kerosene heart I've only got myself to blame

The first course of the meal is done and before we run we wipe away the fingerprints
All the scraps left in our wake only instigate all the dragons locked within
In this certain company you are Persephone doling out all the devils their fate
Why is it when this begins I have to reign you in, you and your evil twin

CHORUS
The key to dancing with fire is to never get too close to the flame
With matchstick legs and a kerosene heart I've only got myself to blame
I will forever be your Constantine and you will be my wings unfurled
We'll always be together when you're alone
Meet me at the end of the world

"Nostro Amor es Eterno e Infragilis"

The storm has passed and you forget any accidents and you sleep in my embrace
I check for injuries, unfamiliar keys as your conscience leaves your face
And when I lay you down I remove your crown and find a halo underneath
I withdraw from the evidence and I resist your final plea

CHORUS
The key to dancing with fire is to never get too close to the flame
With matchstick legs and a kerosene heart I've only got myself to blame
I will forever be your Constantine and you will be my wings unfurled
We'll always be together when you're alone
Meet me at the end of the world
Track Name: SHU-SHO - "Polly Jean Loves Draco
POLLY JEAN LOVES DRACO

Frances Farmer never looked so good.

Frances Farmer never had a chance.
Mix your Polly Jean with Draco - it's a true romance

CHORUS
Now you know that you belong to me
Now I know that I belong to you
Now we know that we belong together
There ain't nothing much that we can't do.

You're my Sam Shepard and your my Patti Smith
How long does it take to get famous.
Four years and six to get rich, six to get rich.

CHORUS
Now you know that you belong to me
Now I know that I belong to you
Now we know that we belong together
There ain't nothing much that we can't do.

Straight up now tell me are we really gonna love each other for ever. Uh-Huh
Straight up now tell me are we really gonna love each other for ever. Yes
Straight up now tell me.
Track Name: SHU-SHO - "Here"
HERE

When you close your eyes do your dreams take over
or do they surprise you in the middle of night (don't cry)
And when the darkness falls do you run for cover
or do you hide in a corner and wait for the light
(wait for the light and the creatures)
And when the creatures stare do you shake off slumber
or do you fight them off until they make you cry (don't cry)
just remember my dear

CHORUS
Open your eyes, I'm right here
You'll never be alone, there's nothing you have to fear
Just hear my voice and dry your tears
Hold on to your heart and soon it will all disappear
Even if I'm not around
I'll always be with you right here

(Time moves on)
With each and every day you're a little bit older
And I know, I know you'll make every little fire burn bright
(And I know, I know you'll make every little fire burn bright, yeah!)
But there are fools out there and they'll run you over (run you over)
they don't care if they're wrong or if they're right
(and they might just break you down)
But don't let 'em get you, don't let 'em get to you
Just remember, just remember, just remember

CHORUS
Open your eyes, I'm right here
You'll never be alone, there's nothing you have to fear
Just hear my voice and dry your tears
Hold on to your heart and soon it will all disappear
Even if I'm not around
I'll always be with you right here
Track Name: SHU-SHO - "Coney Island High"
CONEY ISLAND HIGH

I found a picture yesterday of you and I messin about at Coney Island
You were Mercy and I was Swan for the day singing out
that we’d never stop believing (never stop believin')
Cyclone flyin ten times repeat
Brooklyn at our backs and the atlantic at our feet
Blackberry brandy lips and bloodshot eyes
Stolen Stillwell platform kisses but no goodbyes
The promise of forever gets lost in the nights retreat,
tell me whatever happened to forever…

CHORUS
Flashback heart attack suicide - you can stay alive but we’re all losing time
When this fades to black we will never get back that Coney Island high
Black coffee and cigarettes help me forget that we’re all losing time
It’s taken some to know that I’ll never let go
No, I can’t let go, no

Today I saw another photograph
Thirteen summers had flown from the time of the last flash (time of the last flash)
Black and white photobooth stripdown for all to see when we crashed head first into each other at 7B
You were busy savin the world while I was just drownin’ in it
We caught up with the past in an east village minute
And funny thing about time it just keeps changin'

CHORUS
Flashback heart attack suicide - you can stay alive but we’re all losing time
When this fades to black we will never get back that Coney Island high
Black coffee and cigarettes help me forget that we’re all losing time
It’s taken some to know that I’ll never let go - No, I can’t let you go
Flashback heart attack suicide - you can stay alive but we’re all losing time
When this fades to black we will never get back that Coney Island high
Black coffee and cigarettes help me forget that we’re all losing time
It’s taken some to know that I’ll never let go
No, I can’t let go - no

Today, today they took Coney Island away and we never said goodbye...

CHORUS
Flashback heart attack suicide - you can stay alive but we’re all losing time
When this fades to black we will never get back that Coney Island high
Black coffee and cigarettes help me forget that we’re all losing time
It’s taken some to know that I’ll never let go - No, I can’t let go, no
Track Name: SHU-SHO - Hustle Harder
HUSTLE HARDER

There's a routine that plays out each and every time we meet
that always ends up in defeat and this time I have to say no
I'm not a fighter but you're gonna get your insides out
cause this time I'ma do without, gonna fly without your say so

Tonight good enough ain't enough for me to jump on in
I know you think you're gonna win - well, you think but you don't know
(don't know no better you don't know)
all it took was a second just to change my mind
to up and leave it all behind - realize I was runnin' blind
(but for the record I be runnin' the show)

CHORUS
So if you wanna trick me
Hustle harder hustle harder
If you want me to believe

Understand my life, my way, my rules, my game

Was it a glitch in my personality to force the Mr. hyde in me
Dr. Jeckyll is now deceased and I'm just shaking off the shackles (yeah)
It's hard to escape but it's easier to forget the need with this prisoner mentality
Now that I'm finally free I snap and pop but never crackle

CHORUS
So if you wanna trick me
Hustle harder hustle harder
If you want me to believe
then stop preaching the same ol' same
If you wanna beat me
Hustle harder hustle harder

I've lost the bars but not the chains, their weight reminds me that there's more to pull

If you wanna beat me

Track Name: SHU-SHO - "Music Saved My Life"
MUSIC SAVED MY LIFE

Pops got me a six string when I was thirteen
I learned a few chords played some Bowie and Queen
It was time to find a stage, try out for a band.
They laughed at the Melody guitar and put a mic in my hand

And from that day I had a new plan

"Fuzz" in DR, classic rock en Español
Took a plane to CT for the birth of Spigga/SHU-SHO
With Jaswho? and two boomboxes
One on the left, one on the right
We wrote Saturday, Saturday, Saturday night - rock on

CHORUS
What you gonna do to get to the top?
What you gonna do to see your album drop?
What you gonna do to get? Will you do it for money?
Will you do it for fame?
Will you do it for women, fancy cars or champagne?

Then the "Meaningful Mindlessness" ensued
Fled to NYC, got me some school
Lolked it up with D, through a personal ad
Funked it out with the "G-Men"

06105 Again

Joined a "Liquid Circus" in more ways than one
Electronic ideals, rock songs 101
Searchin' for something I ran to LA
Drove all over the country and made some friends on the way

What you gonna do to climb up the charts?
Make the girls scream and break their hearts?
What you gonna do to be number one?
What you gonna do to earn them Grammys, son?
What you gonna do to go platinum?
Will you do it for money? Will you do it for fame?
Will you do it for women, fancy cars or champagne?
Do you need the attention? (Music)
Do you need to get high? (Music)
Is revenge from the bullies (Music)
who in school made you cry? (Music saved my life)

When I say Malpache! you say Viva!
Malpache! Viva! Malpache! Viva!
When I say Spigga! you say Bigga!
Spigga! Bigga! Spigga! Bigga!
When I say Malpache! you say Viva!
Malpache! Viva! Malpache! Viva!
When I say Spigga! you say Bigga!
Spigga! Bigga! Spigga! Bigga!

Met a Pittsburgh princess with a typewriter hand
She gave me a valentine with no real plans
We stumbled down Cali via Mexico way
When the party was over we were back in the bay
Papa dread had his temple, Papa now I had faith
When this family's here together
These are chains you can't break
Had some time "El Quickie" then returned to my role

Papa, frontman, Spigga/SHU-SHO - love, rock, rhythm and soul

What you gonna do when the bubble pops?
What you gonna do when your label drops you?
What you gonna do when the girls don't come?
What you gonna do when your band breaks up?
What you gonna do when you're done?
I didn't do it for money. Not for for fame.
I didn't do it for women, fancy cars or champagne
I didn't need the attention, I don't need to get hight
Never cared about the bullies, they never made me cry.
Never wanted exposure, didn't need the acclaim.
Didn't want the endorsements or cover magazines
I don't care about reviews, (Music) I'm not part of a scene (Music)
I don't stop at the crossroads. (Music) I don't need magic beans. (Music)
I don't care about the thieves (Music) who steal my ideas. (Music)
Labels, lawyers, promotors (Music) with their back alley deals (Music)
All I need is my music, (Music) my SHU-SHO family. (Music)
All I need is my children (Music) and my sanity.(Music)
All I need you to know (Music) is that I did it for love, (Music changed my life) love, love.

Nothing ever lasts forever except the music that saved my life.
My true friends are still together because of the music that changed our lives.
