about

Feline was Grog and Drew's glamorous punk-pop band, formed in 1996, and signed to EMI in a flourish of champagne and coke and private jets. The band started to implode pretty much straight away and was dropped in 1998 after getting through three drummers, two rhythm guitarists, two managers and releasing one album. To try and get re-signed Feline took the terrible advice of their manager and renamed themselves as Ultraviolet and went a whoring for a new major record deal. No deal materialized and after 6 months Grog, Al, Drew and Ted decided to stop chasing the major dollar and go back to making the music they wanted to - with no compromises. Ted went full time with his band Horsepower and Die So Fluid was born.

This record is Feline's unreleased second album. One single 'Unknown' was released under the Ultraviolet name and a mini album pressed but not released. The final four songs were recorded just before the decision was made to end Feline. 'Versus' and 'Making Hate' were both re-recorded by DSF and can be found on 'Preconception'. These recordings were made 1999-2000.

Personally I've found listening back to this really nice and am amazed how good the recordings still sound - this cost a tiny fraction to produce compared to Feline's EMI debut. They were hungry years but good times for punks young enough to survive on cigarettes and coffee and cereal. We were faces in a burgeoning scene in Camden and we all broke a few hearts along the way - especially Al !

Track Name: Unknown
Snow White's got a secret
Weighs her down just like a stone
Tries so hard to keep it
Hopes that it could be outgrown

I thought I could have my own way
Don't say I won't reach my flag day

Just a tomboy with a time bomb
Ticking in her hand
Don't know what will happen
If things don't go as I planned

I know you share this confusion
We've been such a grand illusion

Here we go, into the unknown
Take it slow
Approaching danger zone
Promises always overblown
So light the fuse
And watch the tiny world
Explode
Explode

I believed it when they said:
Fulfillment Guaranteed
Obstacles just make me
More determined to succeed

I'm stuck in a selfish cyclone
Gathering speed
Till I hit destruct mode

Here we go, into the unknown
Take it slow
Approaching danger zone
Promises always overblown
So light the fuse
And watch the tiny world
Explode
Explode

Tell me you believe it
Thankful you still feel it
We are the world's
Best kept secret
Track Name: Cold Inside
If you wish on a star
It makes a difference who you are
If you wish on a star
It makes a difference who you are

And is it all a lie
That time is on our side
Don't you wonder why you're cold inside

(Yeah)
Cold inside
Cold inside
Cold inside
Cold inside

Lost at the start
You're lost at the start
Never dare to leave your mark
Lost at the start
You're lost at the start
Don't you dare to make your mark

You just say alright
Leave sleeping dogs to lie
How now you're cold inside

(Yeah)
Cold inside
Cold inside
Cold inside
Cold inside

I've got you on your own
Don't you know you're my wish bone
Leaving, I'm leaving
Leaving, I'm leaving
Leaving

Scared of this sound
You're scared of this sound
Logic struck on rocky ground
Scared of this sound
You're scared of this sound
Won't you show me what you've found

You just say alright
Leave sleeping dogs to lie
How now you're cold inside

(Yeah)
Cold inside
Cold inside
Cold inside
Cold inside
Track Name: Memoirs Of A Psychopath
The voices inside my head
They have a special task for me
Yes I believe
Dry lips and panda makeup
I'm at the center of a black comedy

At your request
Another calculated guess
Another test
Another well constructed mess

You read me in a strange way
You turn my hunger into greed
It sickens me
My walls are lined with faces
Brazen reminders of my past tragedy

At your request
Another calculated guess
Another test
Another well constructed mess

Memoirs of a psychopath
The day I fell between the cracks
Wasted wishes, heart attacks
The trophies of a psychopath

At your request
Another calculated guess
Another test
Another well constructed mess

Memoirs of a psychopath
The day I fell between the cracks
Wasted wishes, heart attacks
The trophies of a psychopath
Track Name: Wish You Were Dead
I can't stand it
when I don't get what I want
what makes you so special?
you can bring a drought
I think my luck's run out
and you're the catalyst
secretly I'm pissed
off

I might smile
in an innocent style
but in my head

I wish you were dead
I wish you were dead
I wish you were dead
I wish you were dead

I might smile
in an innocent style
but like I said

I wish you were dead
I wish you were dead
I wish you were dead
I wish you were dead

I wish you were dead
If I can't have you no one else will
I wish you were dead
If I can't have you no one else will
I wish you were dead
If I can't have you no one else will
I wish you were dead
If I can't have you no one else will

I wish you were dead
If I can't have you no one else will
I wish you were dead
If I can't have you no one else will
I wish you were dead
If I can't have you no one else will
I wish you were dead
If I can't have you no one else will

If I can't have you
If I can't have you
If I can't have you.
Track Name: Versus
Take a train to another town
New sky and new surround
I can see myself from here
If he could see me now
My feet don't touch the ground
I can make you disappear
Power at my fingertips
I'm almost reading lips
I can turn days into years

Pack my bags and I'm ready to go
Don't know where but when I find it I'll know
Your faith versus my mistake
It's the chance you take
It makes you sure
Your dream that I slapped your face
But you'll save my place
While I'm gone, gone, gone

It all makes sense today
We act and the world's a play
Make the real world go away
When I can't stand much more
I love the sound of a slamming door
You'll always come back for more
It's all within my reach
Just got to take it and not be weak
Let myself become unique

Pack my bags and I'm ready to go
Don't know where but when I find it I'll know
Your faith versus my mistake
It's the chance you take
It makes you sure
Your dream that I slapped your face
But you'll save my place
While I'm gone, gone, gone

Pack my bags and I'm ready to go
Don't know where but when I find it I'll know
Should've done this years ago
Coming back with something to show
Your faith versus my mistake
(Your faith is strong but I could not be around you)
It's the chance you take
(It's the chance you take)
It makes you sure
(Sure, sure)
Your dream that I slapped your face
(You must be dreaming, don't try to stop me screaming)
But you'll save my place
(But you'll save my place)
While I'm gone, gone, gone
Track Name: I Hope
What do I have to do
To get through to you
I deserve just one look at you
Just one unspoiled view

I just hope that you know
I just hope that you know
I just hope that you know
I just hope I just hope

There is no way
This could be taken away
From us
Now we can trust

If I don't see you wake
If I don't feel the shake
Of your shoulders and head
Feeding me once again

He's feeding me
He's feeding me
He's feeding me
He's feeding me

He's feeding
He's feeding me
He's feeding
He's feeding me

Hope that you know
It's shape of your head
Hope that you know
Just the shape of your head
Track Name: Sever
Like having sex with strangers
Like hitching rides without the danger
Got a heart but it's disconnected
My whole body's been infected

It's so automatic
Crutch for your emotions
Sever, sever, sever, sever
Sever, sever, sever, sever

In my head I hear you breathing
I could scrape my heels across your ceiling
On the screen I've watched myself go
My captivating alter-ego

It's so automatic
Crutch for your emotions
Sever, sever, sever, sever
Sever, sever, sever, sever

It's so automatic
Crutch for your emotions
Sever, sever, sever, sever
Sever, sever, sever, sever
Sever, sever, sever, sever
Sever, sever, sever, sever
Track Name: Driven
I've seen the one
The one and only
He's made for me
For my eyes only
A modern miracle
It's almost creepy
Feels so natural
You've always known me

See your future
Spread before you
Mother Nature's
Plannin' all that you do
In all you do

It frightens me
But I don't show it
I tell myself
That I control it
It's taken hold of you
And before you know it
Your mind is not your own
Your life is not your own

See your future
Spread before you
Mother Nature's
Plannin' all that you do
In all you do

It's driven by love
It's driven by loneliness
It's driven by love
It's driven by loneliness

See your future
Spread before you
Mother Nature's
Plannin' all that you do
In all you do

It's driven by love
It's driven by loneliness
It's driven by love
It's driven by loneliness
It's driven by love
It's driven by loneliness
It's driven by love
It's driven by loneliness
Track Name: Truth Will Out
The only time I ever
Sat down and wrote you a letter
That letter was a why
That letter asked you why

Why do you feel the need for fabrication
Cos you know it's not real
You've got a vivid imagination

Because truth will out
Truth will out
So get some soap and wash your mouth out
Don't insult me if you're in doubt
Because truth will out
Truth will out

I suppose you think you're clever
You never wondered whether
I know it when you lie
Well I love it when you lie

Why do you feel the need for fabrication
When you know it's not real
You've got a wild imagination

Because truth will out
Truth will out
So get some soap and wash your mouth out
Don't insult me if you're in doubt
Because truth will out
Truth will out

You're the boy who cried out wolf
Then he came to get you in your sleep
And bit you
Sunk his teeth into the truth
And then he said,
"Don't you know you shouldn't make a promise you can't keep"

Because truth will out
Truth will out
So get some soap and wash your mouth out
Don't insult me if you're in doubt
Because truth will out
Truth will out

Truth will out
Truth will out
Truth will out
Truth will out
(ooo, ooo, ooo)
