NEW SINGLE - BULLINGDON CLUB

Written within days of the London riots in August 2011 and recorded under a railway arch where the band rehearse in Clapham Junction, literally metres from Lavender Hill. Already played on twice on BBC Radio Newcastle (94.6 fm) and numerous times on BBC 6 Radio.

"exactly the kind of politically-charged song you’d expect to come out of a year as turbulent as 2011....a musical nod to Bruce Springsteen from our old friends Lux Lisbon, any opinion implied are those of the band and not necessarily those of the BBC or its employees" - Tom Robinson – BBC 6 Music -

"a favourite of the year....4 minutes of joy" goingundergroundisentertainment.com

"the resultant concoction constituted by Maccabees, Sound Of Guns-style epicness, and some vocal collision between The Datsuns and Les Incompetents" - Killingmoonlimited Trackoftheday

"early killers on steroids.... a pop at the hooray henry hooligans of David Cameron's alma mater" thedevilhasthebesttuna

Lux Lisbon are, quite simply, the band that Wings could have been.

Lux Lisbon are a 5 piece indie-rock band who met (and recorded their recent debut album 'Your Heart Is A Weapon The Size Of Your Fist) in Nottingham.

This year they have played Camden Crawl and Dot to Dot festival (where they played to a packed Bodega Social) and have the Blogs quietly buzzing with talk of "easily one of the best albums all year" and "sweeping, cinematic, cavernous indie-rock, with melodies that have stadium stamped all over them"

"Their live shows are a real treat, with evidence of particular attention to detail and effort in the video shorts and other visuals that accompany their show on a variety of projectors and television screens. It is distinctly refreshing to see a new band with the ambition to already be thinking in terms of their live presentation in larger venues, which is, it has to be said, where a sound like theirs is at most at home"

BULLINGDON CLUB

I saw a Buller Man in blue on my tv
"what's going on ? there's a fire, it's a riot, it's a riot!"
He said to me
"Don't worry son, they're not like you or me"
But I'm not buying it, buying it, buying it, no

Cos you always hold your head up high, when its a long, long, long way down,
In this town, It ain't so far to fall when you've got nothing at all -
And money makes the merryworld go-round

When the future is never good enough then
They throw some punches, spill some blood
Like you would if you'd been fucked by the Bullingdon Club

You carry the pot and I'll carry the can
Hear the sound of glass! oh my how we ran!
My dear boy you'll never understand
How it was when I was a Buller man

We were young and reckless, dressed to kill
But if we fucked you up, we could pay the bill
I close my eyes real tight because I think I can still remember our Lavender Hill (and the glory)

The future is when we'll fall in love
So we'll rip this joint, just smash it up
Like you did when you were young in the Bullingdon Club

When the future is never good enough
They throw some punches, spill some blood
Like you would if you'd been fucked by the Bullingdon Club

WE ARE, WE ARE, WE ARE THE BULLER BOYS - IN BLUE, IN BLUE, IN BLUE, BLUE AND IVORY so
C'mon on my baby, yeah come sit down next to me

WE ARE, WE ARE, WE ARE THE BULLER BOYS - IN BLUE, IN BLUE, IN BLUE, BLUE AND IVORY so
C'mon on my darling, yeah come put your lips on me

DANCE DANCE DANCE for me baby
DANCE DANCE DANCE for me darling
C'mon now honey, yeah come lie down next to me

The future was when we'll fall in love
So we'll rip this joint, we'll smash it up
Like you did when you were young in the Bullingdon Club
