about

murnie Glasgow, UK

Murnie is a Glasgow/Lanarkshire-based power trio with a love of strong melodies with idiosyncratic lyrics played loud, and with influences as varied as seventies singer-songwriters and classic metal this is hardy surprising. Their unusual piano/drums/guitar-or-bass line-up might appear lacking, but thoughtful arrangements, harmony vocals and sheer enthusiasm result in a big sound from a wee band. ... more

Track Name: Lemonade
Long time gone, summer’s here again
Bricked up space, I can feel the pain
March time town, brings us flesh to bare
An uptown girl, thinks she’s slim you know
I see your smile stretches ear to ear
I love that easy way

Is this, a shove or an exit to a sharp place?
A shove or a down, down heart place
A shove or an exit to a sharp place

In no time long, and summer falls away
I’ll slap my face, so I can’t feel the pain
November song, the Captain calls our names
A down-heeled girl, who’s much too slim you know
I see your smile was trapped inside a cage
Is this the easy way?

Is this, a shove or an exit to a sharp place?
A shove or a down, down heart place
A shove or an exit to a sharp place

As years stretch on, and friendships fall apart
I’ll pull some strings, and crawl back to the start
Of this ending, this glass of lemonade
May start to sting, its no surprise you know
I’ll see your smile returning to its place
The only easy way

Is this, a shove or an exit to a sharp place?
A shove or a down, down heart place
A shove or an exit to a sharp place
Track Name: The Saddist
He likes it when it rains
Feels like sympathy from God
A bland and even pain
To fill up his empty world

He eats at tables for one, cos misery’s sweeter alone
And he hasn’t got friends waiting for him to phone
A single pint of bitter beer
Then home to the mirror to practice his tears

Cos he’s a saddist, he brings everybody down
And he’s glad it’s known all around
That he’s a greetin-faced son of a bitch and he’s coming to your town

A wardrobe full of clothes
Pure black from toe to hair
And because one never knows
Clean black designer underwear

Don’t tell him a joke, cos he won’t see the funny side
He’s got a book of suggestions for suicide
He’s proud of his little black cloud
And he’s only too happy too share it around

Cos he’s a saddist, he brings everybody down
And he’s glad it’s known all around
That he’s a greetin-faced son of a bitch and he’s coming to your town

Yeah he’s a saddist, he brings everybody down
And he’s glad it’s known all around
That he’s a moaning-faced, hell-bent merchant of doom
Yeah he’s a broken-faced, sad act, purveyor of gloom
Yeah, he’s a greetin-faced son of a bitch and he’s coming to your town
Track Name: Trouble Is
You won’t believe the trouble I’m in
You won’t believe the trouble I’m in
This heap of misfortune, catalogue of sin
You won’t believe, so why should I tell
You won’t believe, so why should I tell
What can I buy, when there’s nothing on sale

Trouble is, I’ve seen so much
Trouble is, I miss your touch
Trouble is a done deal such
That I can’t win with this trouble I’m in.

You won’t forget the trouble I’ve caused
You won’t forget the trouble I’ve caused
When I broke your invisible laws
You won’t believe, so why make a scene
You won’t believe, so why make a scene
You won’t believe the trouble I’ve seen

Trouble is, I’ve seen so much
Trouble is, I miss your touch
Trouble is a done deal such
That I can’t win with this trouble I’m in.
Track Name: Leather Muppet
Don’t dress me like a baby, baby
Don’t treat me like a school kid, bend me down and cane me
Try someone who’s older, these things leave me colder, now
Tune in to the station of the TV generation now

I want a leather muppet
Gonna fondle it and cup it
I want a leather muppet now
I want a leather muppet
Don’t say they’re only puppets
I want a leather muppet now

Don’t tell me that you think it’s wrong, hun
You asked me what turns me on
Kermit as a pimp and Fozzie in a gimp-suit, wow
Piggy flicks her lashes, my resistance crashes, now

I want a leather muppet
Gonna fondle it and cup it
I want a leather muppet now
I want a leather muppet
Don’t say they’re only puppets
I want a leather muppet now

Don’t say that you want me to change,
Don’t tell me that you think I’m strange (girl, I’m no stranger than you)
Oh, there’s another thing I guess I ought to tell you too
I’ve always had a thing for Velma outta Scooby Doo

But I’ll settle for a muppet
I’ll play with it and stuff it
I want a leather muppet now
Yeah, I want a leather muppet
I’ll tie it up and cuff it
I want a leather muppet now
Track Name: Kangaroo Girl
On the road with Kangaroo Girl
The wind in my hair and bugs in my teeth
Top’s down and I’m feeling the chill
Grey sky up, grey tarmac beneath

Going nowhere, going nowhere with you
Driving round, bouncing up and down
You stampy tramp you’ll make me black and blue
Kanga, kanga, driving like a kangaroo

Back on the road with gorgeous Kanga-gal
Running red lights and stop signs
Don’t give a Koala-crap about your legal law pal
Just as well you don’t read minds, baby

Going nowhere, going nowhere with you
Driving round, bouncing up and down
You stampy tramp you’ll make me black and blue
Kanga, kanga, driving like a kangaroo

Pump the gas, stamp the brake, never ever indicate
