Steve Lawson lovely lovely stuff - post-Beach Boys harmonies, summery guitar pop that nods in the direction of Big Star, The Replacements, Teenage Fanclub, The Mock Turtles and The Las. Definitely worth your time and attention. Favorite track: What You're Waiting For.

Now that i’m going A killer walks away I’ve got direction Summer’s on my way I’m hopin’ that you’re there I know you where around I didn’t care On the way to seaside town feel ok Summer’s on my way Down in a small town Reflecting coastal days Things have got to slow down Summer’s on my way ...

I will follow you If you remind me Into summer days If they might be Down to the strand and back again And back again Don’t check out in the morning Don’t move the stranded whale Don’t don’t do it till the dawning Every day I will follow you If you don't mind me Down the milky way Even might be To the ocean floor and back again And back again Don’t check out in the morning Don’t move the stranded whale Don’t don’t do it till the dawning Every day ...

I've been waiting at the station Found it hard to walk a straight line I remember good vibrations Always looking for a good time Now what you're waiting for There was a guy who felt elation About that girl he thought was so fine So he went up for an information When she was standing by the stop sign So what you're waiting for ...

Snow makes town a mess Sitting in our class Dreaming all the way Of summer holiday Fly away to Greece Take the train to Spain Drive to Italy That’s where i want to be And there’ll be no homeworking And we could be together, forever Snow makes town a mess Still we’re in this class Dreaming all the way Of summer holiday

Thought you couldn't let me down Friends until the end But hey you couldn't lift the ground I see you now and then Walking down the lane Your eyes behind shades Why should I wait Darlin' have we ever been friends I'll forget you as fast as I can Darlin' have we ever been friends I won't get you again I thought that I could follow you And meet you in the end But hey you couldn't love me too 'cause I was overdue Saw you over there Duck out in the crowd As if I cared Darlin' ... Still you don't stop making out with me Can't you understand I'm lost with you but if you set me free I might be found again I don't pray for the moment That you're coming back to see if I'm still there Darlin' ...

I forgot to be afraid 'cause i knew that you would be there anyway When summer's in the air The sunlight’s upon your hair September remains From New York to New England We forgot to count the changes of the seasons I forgot to say That I’ve planned to go away When summers in the air The sunlight’s upon your hair September remains From New York to New England We forgot to count the changes of the seasons September remains On a train to New Zealand Leaving summertime for no good reasons

Take your time Don't rush it anymore You will find There's a world outside this door I'm trying hard to get through Hope you make it too If you think you've found a new one Maybe I'll say that it's ok But anyway if you've got a good one Maybe I'll come and take you back Come and go Just like you always did You got to know That we got freezing days ahead I'm trying out a new song Hope you make it soon If you think …

A glimpse of sun is coming through I've got to run to make it due The dawning day, we spent the night Trying to find a way to do things right I've done things right Glad to be outside We're happy just to see Your guiding star over you still shining Well that's a start to make a change You drive my car head into the morning Well that's not far and there's no words to say A glimpse of sun is coming through I've got to run to make it due I've done things right Glad to be outside We're happy just to see Your guiding star …

Too bad I’m going home I’ve got to make it on my own I’m leaving I’ve got to say Something on my way Down the stairs to new affairs I met a new girl that was pretty Saying take me down to New York City But if it’s good to be here It’s bad to go away It might be cool might be ok
10.
If you don’t look back To see the dawning there To see the morning red While you turn away And once you’re gone You can’t come back If you don’t look back On a pretty day All the life in each day Before you turn away And once you’re gone You can’t come back I might come back I might forget to come back I don’t know who’s got the answers But I’ve got all the questions If you don’t look back On the times we’ve had On the good and bad You’ll always stay the same And once you’re gone You can’t come back I might come back I might forget to come back I don’t know who’s got the answers But I’ve got all the questions

It's not my way I turn while I should go straight I came here every day Hoping you'd come too But you're already gone You've got you're own way If I was wrong I cannot say In my world I'm no longer in I'm out of it once again Yeah you're my world or could have been Don't tell me i'm dreaming I hit the ground Been down for a long time now And if I'm coming up It won't be soon I'm here and I'm gone I forgot about time If I'm hanging on It's just to find In my world I'm no longer in I'm out of it once again I've heard the sound Of walking through the room Seen that it's not real I've seen the colours of the moon Upon you're hair Seen that it's not there Thought that someone called But no there is no one I hate the way I turn while i should go straight Hanging round at your house There's someone new

about

Seaside Stars Weiden, Germany

Every so often, I'll get a cd from a band I'd never heard or heard of, and put it on, and instantly love it. That can't even begin to describe this disc. I put this on, and by the third song, it's already in my year's top ten. This is the jangle pop record of this new decade - indiepages.com on "The Magic Of Stereo" ... more
