The Rumble Strips

The Rumble Strips

The Rumble Strips – Alarm Clock

I went to see The Rumble Strips headlining the NME new music tour recently, and considering that I had never heard of them, I was pretty happy to now have. A lovely, lively mix of ska and indie that begs to be sung along with, combined with everyone going pretty bloody mental at the gig.

I love the lyrics on Alarm Clock as well:

Well my alarm clock he ain’t working
But I don’t really mind
Cause he ain’t no friend of mine
He kept waking me up all the time

Beep, beep, beep
Get on your feet
You gotta get a job
Cause you’re in too deep
Oh no, oh no

Well I don’t like doing things
That other folks tell me to do
So I hit him with a hammer
And now he’s quite subdued

And when I wake up in the morning
He don’t even make a sound
And my life ain’t slipping away
Because his hands don’t turn around

Beep, beep, beep
Get on your feet
You gotta get a job
Cause you’re in too deep
Oh no, oh no

Bonus tracks

The Rumble Strips – 4 Walls
The Rumble Strips – My, Oh My
