about

"One afternoon, in the Eighties, a friend brought me up to his makeshift studio in Times Square, NYC, to show me the DX7 synth he had just got. State of the art at the time. He said I could record something and so I wrote, played and mixed this song in the couple of hours we were there. Found it in the tape vault (old shoebox) this week and thought the lyric fit New Year's Eve perfectly. So, go ahead punk, effect a change!" - Cheers, Lach

Track Name: Effect A Change
Effect A Change

Do what you can when you can
Don’t you worry about the whole big thing
Do what you can when you can
Don’t you worry about the whole big thing

Effect a change
When you can

Posters on the wall
Stencils on the street
Advertising this week’s elite
But their leather and their coke
Turn their song into a joke
Why pay to keep a rock star fat
When hungry bands are singing on your block
Effect a change
Why pay to keep that rock star fat
When hungry boys are singing on your block
Effect a change
When you can

Do what you can when you can
Don’t you worry about the whole big thing
Effect a change
Do what you can when you can
Don’t you worry about the whole big thing
Effect a change
When you can

Candy-headed boys, face of the week
Selling out to the latest chic
But their leather and their coke

Why moan about world starvation
When a hungry baby’s crying on your block?
Why moan about world starvation
When a hungry baby cry cry on your block?
Effect a change
Watch the tears come falling
Watch them come falling
Watch the tears come
Falling
Falling
Falling
Effect a change
Effect a change
Change your partner and dance around the room
Change your life and forget about your doom
Effect a change
Effect a change
