Bandcamp. If you've heard of it you'll know why we are using it! If you've not heard of it you'll thank us for telling you!

Can you imagine a website where bands can upload full resolution audio files (.aiff) and you can chose what type of format your download is, and there's a minimum of third party overheads reducing the band's income.

Imagine no more because that's what Bandcamp is. By starting with the highest possible quality source, they’re able to convert our tracks into a bunch of different format and quality combinations for you to listen to, including MP3 (320, VBR V0), Ogg Vorbis, Apple Lossless, FLAC and AAC (aka .m4a or iTunes store format)

You can see why we have chosen bandcamp as our supply partner for our downloads.

Having said that In the days of our demo recordings the facilities available to up-coming bands were rather basic compared to this century!

The demo tracks were mostly recorded on a cassette based "portastudio" or in some cases directly off the sound desk at gigs but this also imbues the tracks with a certain 'patina', which given their 30+ years age is quite fitting, so please understand that these are not modern recording studio quality. We're currently leaving the tracks open for streaming so you can hear what you are getting before buying!

 Graeme

Graeme MurrayI love this track, though I’m aware that some of my colleagues don’t feel quite so warmly about it.

I love the creeping feel of it, and really love the chorus riff. I also really enjoy Paul’s vocal delivery in this track.

This is very different from your normal Pallas song, and I find it very hooky, and difficult to get out of my mind once I have heard it.

 

  

 

Paul

Paul MackieHalf Full or Half empty?

If you are the latter and/or feel the pain of the world and what we do to each other around our beautiful planet then you may have noticed on flicking your tv remote that things are not very good… 

That’s the scene set and it is supported by the haunting riff and very disturbing piano. 

There is indeed a monster coming…. Beware

 

 

Niall

Niall MatthewsonThis is another track that I had been messing about with at home. The track was originally called “Monster” and that name seems to have been the inspiration for the lyrics that followed.

 

 

 

 

 

Colin

Colin FraserIts coming and there’s no place to hide. A radio friendly wee ditty and short by Pallas standards!

 

 

 

 

  

Ronnie

Ronnie BrownQuite hooky. There’s a major chord in the verse that reminds me of something by Bowie – so I’m pretty cool with it!

 

 

 

 

 

Lyrics

 

I hear no music on the radio

Switch on my Tv there's nothing left amuses me

Can’t find a movie or a comedy show

No sound of laughter no happy ever after

I see them talking but don’t hear what they say 

They're all sounding crazy it truly starts to faze me

It's just outrageous their hate appears contageous

They take it the wire, they take it the wire….

 

I feel a monster… I feel a monster coming

I fear a monster… I hear a monster coming

 

I see the soldiers as they’re boarding their plane

They smile and they’re taunting, a bravery that’s haunting

Broken mothers fear they come home again 

Wrapped up in a flag, huh

 

Tin pot dictators chase their own atom bomb

While this planet is melting and no one cares for helping

We argue over nothing my head is really hurting

They take it to the wire, take it the to wire….

 

I feel a monster… I feel a monster coming

I fear a monster… I hear a monster coming

 

I am just an ordinary guy

The world's gone crazy I couldn’t tell you why

I hear no music just distant angry voices

Fear in the air, panic everywhere

It tears my soul apart, the hatred and lies

I see my friends, despair in their eyes

Something tells me the end has begun

A monster's coming there's no place to run

 

Run 

 

 

I feel a monster… I feel a monster coming

I hear a monster… I fear a monster’s coming

I feel a monster… I fear a monster coming

I see a monster… I see a monster coming………
