our music a-z
Der Traum ist aus
This song, originally by Ton Steine Scherben (1972), has accompanied Xavi all his life. In the face of the war in Ukraine and the threat posed by climate change, its optimistic message of making the dream of a better world a reality continues to inspire!
The power of the dragon.
1998 & 2021
"Our wings carry wisdom, our eyes know the world and all of us share what we've learned. Of knowledge and secrets and ways of the world and things only ducks could have heard."
Our version of this 1972 Alice Cooper song which we absolutely loved when we were 18.
1997 & 2022
Sloth - we stand with you! Capybara - we'll heal your home! Tapir - we'll shield you from harm! We are all one, this is the home we love!
1999 & 2021
Hotdogs and apple pie
A country-punk-blues for all those teenagers stuck somewhere in square surroundings with people who don't understand what you're all about and who don't encourage you to follow your dreams!
I Don't Care
"I've heard that one before and now fuck off!" - the epitome of youthful disdain!
Ink, Blood & Vaseline
If the three kings were tattooists, this is the song they would sing!
A song inspired by X's "Nausea". It's about the leopard slugs who sometimes visit our living room and about that we're cool with that. And about that people using slug pellets are by far the bigger problem!
1994 & 2021
"Dreams are like seeds in the mangrove woods... They can go everywhere!"
Based on a riff we wrote in 1997 back in Hollywood, this has now evolved into the most kick-ass song about nightjars ever written!
Our version of one of our favourite Aerosmith songs from their epic 1976 album "Rocks". A very timely song, we tweaked the lyrics a little bit to enhance its relevancy in the face of climate change.
Our version of this awesome punk classic by the Dead Boys. Recorded 1997 at Rock'n'Roll Studios in Hollywood, filmed in 2017 in Terrassa, Catalunya.
1998 & 2021
Quest of the Nest
About the importance of stepping out and realising the true nature of things.
Rudolph the red-nosed rebel
An anti-bullying xmas song. We expose the toxicity of the "cute" Rudolph-story and let Rudolph reclaim his dignity!
Scheiße, Herr Doktor!
Just young punks wondering what this square society is all about...
From our first single - "the politicians get fatter, they talk so much shit their mouths smell. They're gonna die soon anyway and then we are stuck in their pile of shit!"
2017 & 2021
Slow Children Slow
The rhythm of life on Anglesey. "And when the sun falls on the water it's beautiful!"
1998 & 2021
Smash the Dam
Smash the dam and break the barrier! Eels must swim from sea to source! As they've always done before!
Our take on this classic Mötley Crüe song from 1981. It relates back directly to our days living on the streets of Hollywood...
Stay out of my Life (with your Suicide)
Stay the fuck out!
1996 & 2021
Sunset Shit (we won't back down!)
Originally written in 1996, shortly after moving out to Hollywood. We were living on the streets, pursuing our dream... "Just some more young musicians stranded in L.A. / for so many fuckin' years it's been the same! / It just might be a dream come true - / Hey, L.A., we're stuck with you!"
The Times They Are A-Changing
As relevant now as it was in 1964! A lasting message of change!
