about

Boss of Pink Lizard Music and collaborator extraordinaire Benbo presents his first ever solo EP.

These are the fruits of twelve years' work.

- 'Sheep On Drugs' was recorded and mixed in one manic all-night session in a Hastings bedroom.
- 'I'm Gone' was written between Brixton and New Jersey with poker champion and award-winning film director Jet Wintzer.
- 'Black Hole' self-generated in an industrial unit in St Leonards-On-Sea.

EP1 launches at a special party on Friday May 29 @ Roadtrip & the Workshop, 243 Old Street, London EC1V 9EY. For guest list, email GL@benbo.ninja

Track Name: Sheep On Drugs
Keep your shoulders on
I only want to see how things have gone
Where you're coming from is absolutely fucking mad

I Evanescence you
I Lemonheads and Public Enemoo
I Sheep On Drugs and Muse
But never had a thing by Tad
And nor did you
Nor did you

Switch off everyone
A spade is still a spade in Huntingdon
Check for locks undone
And scrape the spiders off my legs

What happened in my life for you?
Track Name: I'm Gone
I think you’re
Very nice
I think we should
Make it twice

And I don’t think you know anybody that takes you as seriously as you should be
What do they all think you talk about?
It goes over their heads and straight into my ears and I’m gone
I’m gone

You think I’m
Very nice
You think we should
Do it twice

And I know what’s going on in there cos my central processor’s in despair
I can’t eat food I can’t do my hair
I get up I move on you come into my brain and I’m gone
I’m gone

Ah er ooh egh er oo oo

I’m gone
I’m gone
I’m gone
I’m gone
Track Name: Black Hole
Black hole, black hole, what do you do to me?
Black hole, black hole, Sea of Tranquility

Don't you know you'll never make the grade if you don't drink lemonade?
Don't you know you'll never see my face if you don't enter the race?

Black hole, black hole, what do you do to me?
Black hole, black hole, Sea of Tranquility?
Black hole, black hole, what do you do to me?
Black hole, black hole, you make me want to say
No way
