THE NEW LOUTONIANS - SAID HELLO!

Listen to the debut album from The New Loutonians, a group of friends from Park Orchards in Victoria Australia.

Comprised of twin brothers Murray and Evan Lorden (bass and guitar), kindergarten companion Chris Nealon on guitar, and Parkwood High School friends Luke Gerard on vocals and David Gow on drums.

Damian Wensing joined the band in 2010, a challenging throne to fill on drums, but mightily worthy replacement for dedicated family man David Gow. The welcome addition of Wensing filled out the current line-up to proportions bursting with super heaped mojo jizz wads of musical talent up on your lids.

It all began when the earlier incarnation of this band, The Jam Pixies, won the Parkwood High School Talent Quest, hooking them $100 cash. It wasn't until 10 years later that they began playing music again, and the magical combination of these fellows is still developing.

The album begun in 2007, where they recorded their favorite songs they'd written to that point. Later, an additional 3 songs were recorded live with Brad Loader, and added to the album.

The album was launched on a lovely winter's night to a brimming Old Bar crowd on Johnson St, Fitzroy on the 17th of June 2010.

Thank you to everyone who enjoys the album!
Peace.

Track Name: I Wished For So Much
I WISHED FOR SO MUCH

I wished for so much, you gave me so little.
Where are you now in time, play me like your fiddle.
I’m working for you now, and you only.
Why did you make me so very lonely?

The sun is not shining, because you’re not here.
Why is it that you tread where there is no fear.
People believe in you, there is nothing in this space,
That you have not touched, get me out of the rat race.

They talk to you every day, like you are right there,
But you’re only there for the ministers that care.
They grace you and speak to you every day.
They are the ones that do not pay.

If karma is real, then I want my life back,
Cause you screwed me over, treat me like a cul de sac.
If you were my light, to take me out within the night,
I would love and speak to you all night long.

Work is such a pity, because it’s in the city.
The lights are all blinding. My contract is binding.
If only you believed long enough…
I’d leave you here like you left me?

Finally I had hope, in all you could approve.
When finally I get there you ask me to move.
I’ve taken my spot right next to you,
When you speak to me you speak right through.

I wished for so much, you gave me so little.
Where are you now in time, play me like your fiddle.
I’m working for you now, and you only.
Why did you make me so very lonely?

Ooooh, there is nothing in this place,
That you have not touched, get me out of the rat race.
They grace you and speak to you every day.
They are the ones that do not pay.

Get me out of the rat race.

Track Name: Everyone Everywhere Lost In Time
EVERYONE EVERYWHERE LOST IN TIME

Kicking and screaming,
Why aren’t you gleaming,
To make you smile,
Have me stay a while.
Fire in your heart,
Knew it from the start.
Watch and change,
Rearranged.

I’ll be with you,
I’m lost in two.
Nothing to run,
Your favourite son.
Oh yeah!

Beautiful grin,
The day begins,
Rocking and rolling,
Your pram a’ strolling.
Life has a way,
Of making a new day.
Each thing you do.
Everything is new.

I’ll be with you,
I’m lost in two.
Nothing to run,
Your favourite son.
Oh yeah!

Sun is still shining.
Because you’re alive.
You make me want,
Want to survive.

I’ll be with you,
I’m lost in two.
Nothing to run,
Your favourite son.
Oh yeah!

Track Name: Say Something
SAY SOMETHING

You look pretty in that dress,
I don’t wanna make it a mess.
I really must confess.
I like you in that dress.

I like to touch your face...
I like to touch your hair...

Come on baby, gonna take you tonight.
We’re gonna go to the park.
We’re gonna ride on the swings.

It’s the beginning, is where I start,
It’s the beginning, is where I start.

Don’t know where I’m goin'.
Don’t know where I’ve been.
Can you tell me something?

Say something.
Say something I don’t know.

Now…

Ride the train,
It’s not a strain.
Ride the train all night long.
Ride the train all alone.

Can you tell me why?
I was lost without you.
My feelings they drove us apart

It’s the beginning, is where I start,
It’s the beginning, is where I start.

Don’t know where I’m goin.
Don’t know where I’ve been.
Don’t want to look within.
Don’t know who you are.
But tell me how you feel.
Can you tell me something.

Say something.
Say something I don’t know.

Now…

Track Name: Driving In My Car
DRIVING IN MY CAR

Turn off the TV,
Visions in my head..
In my head.

I open up your door.
Wind blows through my hair.
My hair.

I follow your headlights.
Follow round the bend.

Why don’t you turn around.
Turn around turn around.

I look up to the sky.
I can see all my friends.
My friends.

They’re sayin close your eyes.
Let go of the wheel.
The wheel.

I push the car to faster.
And I close my eyes.
And let go.

Why don’t you turn around.
Turn around turn around.

Close my eyes, close my eyes!
I got no control.
No control.

I saw a flash of light.
So glad that I’m alive.
I’m alive.

Track Name: Pills
PILLS

I wake up, lost in thought.
Maybe I’m Jesus, maybe I’m lost.
Maybe I’m lost.
Punch me brother, crazy times.
Talking shit, no memories in mind.
No memories in mind.

Take the pill. Can’t sit still.
I’m not fuckin’ crazy.
Take the pill. Can’t sit still.
You’re just fuckin’ lazy.

Watch cartoons, TV talks to me.
Past life, reincarnation.
Recollection none.
Tired and uninvolved, lost my way.
Talk about movies.
In love with the actress.

Take the pill. Can’t sit still.
I’m not fuckin’ crazy.
Take the pill. Can’t sit still.
You’re just fuckin’ lazy.

I’m fuckin crazy, and you’re fuckin lazy.

Life’s upside down, perhaps its just me.
But am I going crazy?
I don’t know anymore.
What’s real? What’s not?
Lost in thought, a schizophrenic’s life.
It’s only my life.

Take the pill. Can’t sit still.
I’m not fuckin’ crazy.
Take the pill. Can’t sit still.
You’re just fuckin’ lazy.
Take the pill. Can’t sit still.
I just wanna be me.
Take the pill. Can’t sit still.
You’re just fuckin’ lazy.

Where have all my friends gone?
Departed me once more.
Upgrade my pills.
Upgrade my pills.

I’m fuckin crazy, and you’re fuckin lazy.
I’m fuckin crazy, and you’re fuckin lazy.

Track Name: Brightest Everlasting Lonely Star
BRIGHTEST EVERLASTING LONELY STAR

Trying to find some sanctuary,
Is it there within my head?
I’ve lost all my senses...
I should have gone straight back to bed.

There’s something round here,
I don’t know what it is but I’m gonna find it.

I’ve found my way,
I’m who I am you're who you are.
I’m gonna be the brightest everlasting lonely star.

Can you tell I’ve been through hell?

Sometimes I feel apart from the world.
I wanna feel a part of the plan.
I wish you were a part of the plan,
I’m gonna be somebody just who I am.

There’s something round here,
I don’t know what it is but I’m gonna find it.

I’ve found my way,
I’m who I am your who you are.
I’m gonna be the brightest everlasting lonely star.

Can you tell I’ve been through hell?

I’m trying to live with myself,
I’m trying to show you my face,
I don’t live for a lot of things.
But I live for your grace…

There’s something round here,
I don’t know what it is but I’m gonna find it.

Track Name: Stars Of Love
STARS OF LOVE

I know that with you I’ll never be blue.
I know that it’s shown through and through.
I love the way you are so kind.
It gives me such a piece of mind.

But all I can see is beyond me.
And beneath me, the stars of love.

Sometimes I get so lonely,
But with you I’m so happy.
Don’t make it so hard,
To love you all the time.

To me you're perfect.
So lovely and worth it.
Beneath the stars of love.

The stars of love are in your eyes,
To me it’s only no surprise!
Your love has gone so far away,
Why is it that you don't want to stay?
Come on stay now.

To me you're perfect,
So lovely and worth it,
Beneath the stars of love.

Track Name: Spread Your Wings
SPREAD YOUR WINGS

Sweet lullaby for the night.
Why can't I hold you tight?
Sweet love of all the night,
Why can't I hold you tight?
Sweet love of all the night,
Can I hold you tight, tonight?

Spread your wings and fly…
Fly far, far away.
So far away from yesterday.

Come on baby,
I wanna hold you tight.
I don’t wanna see your face again,
You look ugly in that light.
You’re not only in my mind,
But you’re always in my bed.
I just wanna get your right out,
Get you right out of my head.

Spread your wings and fly…
Fly far, far away.
So far away from yesterday.

Track Name: Loved By One
LOVED BY ONE

You give me all your strength,
Only I hold back.
I love your only smile.
Please stay with me awhile.

The joy of life is only carrying you,
You carry me and I carry you.
See the love I give to you,
It’s the point of all I knew.

If only you could tell me more.
About who you are forever more,
Saving all my love in bottles,
To one day open up and release.

We all love one another,
A gift for all the world.
Let me love you
For a day, evermore.
