about

It’s the snazzy new must-have, like a suddenly-fashionable uncle’s jumper, or a recyclable cup of skinny chai latte - without further ado, freshly packaged from the conveyor belt this morning, please be upstanding for: ‘Hot Off The Press’

Peculiar Disco Moves leave no stone unturned in their quest for pop’s crown of idiosyncrasy, with the release of ‘Hot Off The Press’, a foray into the world of lost identity, fallen heroes and where-are-they-now’s.

With some fantastic features and write ups prior to release, notably from NARC Magazine, NE Love and the Chronicle, as well as widespread airplay including nationally on BBC 6Music, and locally on BBC Newcastle (including a session for the Introducing show) and BBC Tees, Hot Off The Press has already had some incredible support but really it's the fans that we aim to please! Do us and yourself a favour and buy (or stream) it and let us know what you think!

Track Name: Breaking News
I met a nice girl in a coffee shop
She didn't mind me spilling tea all down her top
In the news, hot off the press
In the news, in your Sunday best
Breaking news

I took my dog for a walk in the park
We played fetch for an hour 'til it got dark
In the news, hot off the press
In the news, if you don't get dressed
Breaking news

Yesterday's hero, tomorrow's joke
If your wife walks out and leaves you flat broke
It's not the dream that they sold you
It's not what you'd hoped
It's not a game anymore
No one's knocking at your door
Breaking news

I went for a run in the afternoon
It was a cold, damp day and I got soaked through
In the news, hot off the press
In the news, in your pants and vest
Breaking news

Late for a meeting, short on time
No change for the meter got a parking fine
In the news, hot off the press
In the news, a source of public interest
Breaking news

Yesterday's hero, tomorrow's joke
If your wife walks out and leaves you flat broke
It's not the dream that they sold you
It's not what you'd hoped
It's not a game anymore
No one's knocking at your door
Breaking news

Read all about it

In the news, hot off the press
Breaking news, in your Sunday best
In the news, hot off the press
Breaking news, in your pants and vest
In the news, hot off the press
Breaking news, if you don't get dressed
In the news, yesterday's stories
News, enough to make you depressed
Breaking News
Track Name: American Way
When you talk you must project
Hold your head up to connect
And when you sing stand up straight
No need to clarify your words to communicate

'Cos it's a simple conversation
When your nation speaks then everyone obeys
It's the monopoly of today
Not even black or white
It's just the American way

When you laugh you must be bold
Leave sarcastic stick-in-the-muds to UK Gold
When you compete it's at all cost
Forget sentiment and taking part, there's no riposte

'Cos it's a simple conversation
When your nation speaks then everyone obeys
It's the monopoly of today
Not even black or white
It's just the American way

You can't bring yourself to talk to me
You won't return my calls, I just can't break the walls of authority
It's blind invasion every step I take
We're losing who we are and what we were
I wish that I could break the American way

When you laugh you must be bold
Leave sarcastic stick-in-the-muds to UK Gold
When you compete it's at all cost
Forget sentiment and taking part, there's no riposte

'Cos it's a simple conversation
When your nation speaks then everyone obeys
It's the monopoly of today
Not even black or white
It's just the American way

You can't bring yourself to talk to me
You won't return my calls, I just can't break the walls of authority
It's blind invasion every step I take
We're losing who we are and what we were
I wish that I could break the American way

But all I really want to talk about
Is the crazy cool cats when they twist and shout
Hitch hike across 66
With a dollar to my name and I'll get my kicks with you
Freewheelin' with a broke guitar
Filling up on liquor in an old fruit jar
I want to hear some boogie woogie in a Memphis saloon
Want to fall asleep with you outside under the bright blue moon
And then I'd like to be alone
On the way back home

It's blind invasion every step I take
We're losing who we are and what we were
I wish that I could break the American way
Track Name: Glamour Girls
Blinded by lust
When I was looking for love
Searching for new pasture
When what I had was enough

And you know
How it goes
When you turn out the light you're alone
And you'll see
Glamour Girls
They ain't real

Are we living in a world of make believe?

Guilt on the brain
Falls mainly on the plain
Of the boring and laborious
It's the simple life or more or less

And you know
How it goes
When you turn out the light you're alone
And you'll see
Glamour Girls
They ain't real

Honey darling
Sugar plum
She's my sweetie pie and she knows just what to do

And you know what it's like when he's facing the boot
With his friends grown up, he's out of the loop
And she'll seize him through dreaming
And everything else is a blur
Why? Feeling like this...

I'm in a neurotic state of dependency
I need my time to ponder over yonder...

Blinded by lust
When I was looking for love
Searching for new pasture
When what I had was enough

And you know
How it goes
When you turn out the light you're alone
And you'll see
Glamour Girls ain't real

And you'll see
Glamour Girls
They ain't real
