'Spazzamatazz' is a compilation of Fab Claxton's first two EPs - 'Ramalama Sasquatch' (released February 2012) and 'Amped Up Real High' (released September 2012). The album contains 8 songs of gonzo-rock madness filled with melodic hooks and witty lyrics. It's like a demolition derby where all the cars are driven by rabid gorillas. Yeah - it's that good.

Track Name: Call Me When The Heat Dies Down
You never dream without sleeping
Been dreaming almost half my life
It was a wonderful evening
Until you pulled out that knife

They're coming for you now
I wouldn't hang around
If you don't leave town
They're gonna track you down
They're coming for you now
I wouldn't hang around
Call me when the heat dies down

Of all my comrades and cronies
You stick out like a broken bone
Cause in a world full of phonies
It's good to know you're not alone
When we were just little children
Your mind was racing all the time
Now you have traded your best friend
For a partner in crime

They're coming for you now
I wouldn't hang around
If you don't leave town
They're gonna track you down
They're coming for you now
I wouldn't hang around
Call me when the heat dies down

Don't you dare abuse
That we were good friends
Yes, I will lie for you
But this is where it ends

They're coming for you now
I wouldn't hang around
If you don't leave town
They're gonna track you down
They're coming for you now
I wouldn't hang around
Call me when the heat dies down

You never dream without sleeping
Been dreaming almost half my life
It was a wonderful evening
Until you pulled out that knife
Track Name: Tried To Meet You Halfway
I don’t know how I lost you
I don’t know how I lost you

Time to start again 'cause what you did can't be undone
I tried to meet you halfway this time
I tried to meet you halfway this time
There's no coming back - you made a fool of everyone
I tried to meet you halfway this time
I tried to meet you halfway this time

I know - I see
That devil on my shoulder hangs around more as I get older
I know - I see
My part is often played by someone else in your dreams these days
I know - I see
I just got back from the future
Those cowboy boots you're gonna buy won't suit ya
I know - I see
The calls are coming from in the house
That's just one more thing for me to worry about

Time to start again 'cause what you did can't be undone
I tried to meet you halfway this time
I tried to meet you halfway this time
There's no coming back - you made a fool of everyone
I tried to meet you halfway this time
I tried to meet you halfway this time

I know - I see
Looks like a storm's a-brewin' - just might wash away the ruins
I know - I see
Why can't I be content like all those people in advertisements?
I know - I see
Life gets in the way of living
It's taking more than I feel like giving
I know - I see
I'd like to leave an impression on you
On the small of your back with the sole of my shoe

Time to start again 'cause what you did can't be undone
I tried to meet you halfway this time
I tried to meet you halfway this time
There's no coming back - you made a fool of everyone
I tried to meet you halfway this time
I tried to meet you halfway this time
Track Name: Settling For You
Save me from myself - I get carried away
But I don't want to bore you
I can't trust myself if I think it's okay
That I'm just settling for you

You've gotta get it right - you can't overthink it
‘Cause in the dead of night it feels like you're sinking
Our heroes and our villains - it's hard to spot the differences
The ones who wear the capes are the ones with better publicists
The truth will not resemble the facts when they are done with it
And everybody's playing along……and you do

And before I bid farewell
Allow me this
Would you kindly rot in hell?
Goodbye

Save me from myself - I get carried away
But I don't want to bore you
I can't trust myself if I think it's okay
That I'm just settling for you

Sleepwalking through the days - daydreaming through the nights
You're stumbling through the haze - the truth doesn't sound right
We celebrate the dull and we praise a lack of quality
Like everyone is high and the drug is mediocrity
Coming soon - the sequel - a blockbuster lobotomy
And everybody's playing along……and you do

And before I bid farewell
Allow me this
Would you kindly rot in hell?
Goodbye

Save me from myself - I get carried away
But I don't want to bore you
I can't trust myself if I think it's okay
That I'm just settling for you
Track Name: These Bones (Really Get Around)
We've been sold the idea that dreams can come true
It's not happening for me - is it happening for you?
Can’t you take off that ring when you’re around me?
You’re taking all the fun out of infidelity
I only keep you around ‘cause I like how you move

You got yourself sorted out
Then I come along
Now you're moping about
Like I do

Young love on the rocks
You can't run away
You can't turn back the clocks
The baby's here to stay

Existence is futile - it's pointless and random
There's no meaning - no great truth - so lighten your load
When you pull back the curtain the Wizard is AWOL
There's nobody at the controls

These bones - they really get around
These bones - they really get around
These bones - they really get around
I don't know if I'm comin' or goin'

In the land of the fool
The half-wit is king
I'll take the crown off of you
Your majesty

How'd your downfall begin?
We all wanna know
Your faith is wearing thin
And you're about to blow

Existence is futile - it's pointless and random
There's no meaning - no great truth - so lighten your load
When you pull back the curtain the Wizard is AWOL
There's nobody at the controls

These bones - they really get around
These bones - they really get around
These bones - they really get around
I don't know if I'm comin' or goin'
Track Name: (Sha-La-La-La) Lights Out
(sha-la-la-la-la) (sha-la-la-la-la)
(sha-la-la-la-la) (sha-la-la-la-la)

I've had enough of being normal
God I'm just sick, so sick of being bored
I wanna take you to the formal
I promised your daddy that I'll have you home by four

There's something in the air
There's something in the air
There's something in the air - it's coming to get you
There's something in the air - it's already here

(sha-la-la-la-la) Wipeout (sha-la-la-la-la) It's coming down
(sha-la-la-la-la) Lights out (sha-la-la-la-la) It's in your house

I don’t wanna spoil the ending
But the bad guys win and then the credits roll
We've gotten pretty good at pretending
"I love you and you love me" is just damage control

There's something in the air
There's something in the air
There's something in the air - it's coming to get you
There's something in the air - it's already here

(sha-la-la-la-la) Wipeout (sha-la-la-la-la) It's coming down
(sha-la-la-la-la) Lights out (sha-la-la-la-la) It's in your house

Give yourself just a little time
‘Cause the panic’s coming up behind
Track Name: If You Want Me Around
Love's young dream's not dead
But it's hanging on by a thread
We can't just let this die
The wreckage is stacked a mile high
Brother there are some things that cannot be bought
Sister I've got nothing for you but pure love
I'll put my heart on the line this time

And I really wanna say
That I really wanna stay if you want me around
Don't be throwin' this away
'Cause I really wanna stay if you want me.....

'Round and 'round we go
Getting comfortable in the status quo
There's more to life they say
But until I see it - I'm staying this way
The sun is gonna set on us before too long
Will they talk about 'the good old days' when we're gone?
I'll put my heart on the line this time

And I really wanna say
That I really wanna stay if you want me around
Don't be throwin' this away
'Cause I really wanna stay if you want me.....

Back - you don't want me
Back - you don't want me
Back - you don't want me back
Oh no

And I really wanna say
That I really wanna stay if you want me around
Don't be throwin' this away
'Cause I really wanna stay if you want me around
And I really wanna say
That I really wanna stay if you want me around
Don't be throwin' this away
'Cause I really wanna stay if you want me around
Track Name: She's Trying To Fix Me
I'm tired of feeling anxious because of you
Thinking about all the shady things you do
I'm trying to get my head wrapped around the truth
You're walking around with the stormclouds following you
You're never gonna be the one to back down
You're never gonna be the one to back down
I'm tired of being stressed out because of you
You're making the whole thing hard for me to get into

And I tell myself that she's the one
And I tell myself that she's the one
And I tell myself that she's the one
But she's trying to fix me

Now don't get me wrong - we might still be friends
But I'd be happy if we didn't speak again
And even though I've got nothing better to do
The last thing I need's another conversation with you
You're never gonna be the one to back down
You're never gonna be the one to back down
Peace and love sound swell - I'll have to try them
I hope they've got comfortable beds at the asylum

And I tell myself that she's the one
And I tell myself that she's the one
And I tell myself that she's the one
But she's trying to fix me

I'm tired of feeling anxious because of you
Thinking about all the shady things you do
I'm trying to get my head wrapped around the truth
You're walking around with the stormclouds following you
You're never gonna be the one to back down
You're never gonna be the one to back down
I'm tired of being stressed out because of you
You're making the whole thing hard for me to get into
Track Name: Tomorrow Might Not Come
Regret what I've never tasted
One day I might have to face it
How much of my life I've wasted
I had time

I start my new life tomorrow
Leave you to deal with your sorrow
Your excuses seem so borrowed
You had time

You know I live for the day at hand
I knew you'd give nothing to my plans

I don’t wanna use my head too much
‘Cause I just wanna fall in love
And when your push comes to my shove
I’ll take life

I refuse to have back-up plans
The future might not happen
Come on and catch me if you can
I’ll take life

When I’m an old man I might be
Bitter and grey - so why not enjoy me now?
You might as well take advantage
Of me this way - I won't put up a fight
When I’m an old man I might be
Bitter and grey - so why not enjoy me now?
You might as well take advantage
Of me this way - I won't put up a fight

Sing along if you mean it
One more time – with some feeling
Live today and believe it
Tomorrow might not come
Sing along if you mean it
One more time – with some feeling
Live today and believe it
Tomorrow might not come
