about

Peculiar Disco Moves return with their enigmatic new single Lost For Words (Please Don’t Tell Me Please Don’t Say), a lyrical rant concerning the charm and character old technology and its often ersatz replacements, encapsulated in a ball of musical explosiveness.
The single will be supported by a show at the Newcastle Institute for Mining on Friday 9th May, as well as the launch of a video two weeks before the single is released. Lost For Words (Please Don’t Tell Me Please Don’t Say) will be available to download from the Peculiar Disco Moves’ Bandcamp page and to purchase from live shows as a limited edition CD.
Lost For Words (Please Don’t Tell Me Please Don’t Say) features many methods or forms of technology that are, or are becoming, obsolete in today’s society. The song compares A to Z Maps to Satellite Navigation, Sky-plus and Digital Boxes to VCR Players, and Internet relationships to face to face! We are living in times where the world seems to change at such an alarming rate, and a lot of the character and fun seems to be taken out of everyday life by faster, more ‘efficient’ ways of doing things.

Track Name: Lost For Words (Please Don't Tell Me Please Don't Say)
Everyday when I'm wide-eyed
It's the digital spectrum
Telling me to rise and shine
With news and music
But I don't like it, I don't like it
When did life become so hybrid
Live pause TV, flick plus one
My VCR is much more fun

Please don't tell me I don't know the score yet

Central locking is the key
To a mind at rest
But there's no need for excess speed
When you pass your test
I don't like when engines stop and start at lights
When you press your clutch
Recalculate your sat nav says
My A to Z goes all the way

Please don't tell me I don't know the score yet

When your deepest thoughts
Are locked up in the plainest font, you say
What you've got to say
But your laptop crashes and there must be a better way
Pen and paper here
Reporting for duty
You need never fear
We'll never leave you lost for words

The internet's all ats and dots
You met this girl online she's hot
She showed you pictures with no clothes on
But they're all fake and a copy and paste job
Grab your coat and get some son (sun)
Cos' girls for real are much more fun

Please don't tell me I don't know the score yet
Track Name: Chris (Ballad Version)
Chris you've got to stop telling lies
It's getting in her head
You've got to wake up be wise
And stop beating your chest
It doesn't take much to smile
And show an ounce of interest
Wash and iron your clothes
And compliment her new dress
It's so nice when you come round at night
Pretending that you give a damn
When did you stop thinking 'what's my next trick to impress?'
Now it's excuses to get away early

Chris you don't want to make a house a home
Tell her that you're happy living on your own
It's easier pretending that it's what you want
All you want's the full box set and a home cooked meal for one
Just one, for one

Chris it's alright being coy but then in front of your friends
You talk about all the bad things you did at the weekend
Happy sailing through life with people thinking you're fine
Then crying into your pillow, time's just passing you by
It's a choice that you chose when you froze you didn't choose it for you
Making it all up as you go
It's not right being quiet even if all the words come out wrong
It's everybody's future

Chris you don't want to make a house a home
Tell her that you're happy living on your own
It's easier pretending that it's what you want
All you want's the full box set and a home cooked meal for one
