Medicated Shell (album version) - Feat. sitar, tabla & Raj's mother

Our singer Raj was born in Australia, but what you might not know is that his mother is a classically trained Sri Lankan singer. He grew up jamming in alternative rock bands in high school while also learning the 72 scales of Carnatic music. The intro of Medicated Shell was sung by Raj's mother. The track also features some pretty cool sitar and tabla.

Medicated Shell is about an addict who loses touch with reality.

'Sitting cracked up on this wall, I'm moving with the ebb and flow. It's pulsing through my veins, it slowly pushes up again. This clock has stopped. Time passed slowly. I'm punching out again...

I'm fading. I'm fading. I'm gone. Can you see through me now 'cause I'm fading, I'm fading, I'm gone in this medicated shell.

Meditating, drifting slowly in and out of conscious headspace. Breathe it in and breath it slowly; tendrils fade away. Said it's a universal state of being; always seen but never seeing. Whispered thoughts that have no meaning, oh they'll rue that day. This pin has dropped, it's sinking slowly. Digging in my brain…'

Music video - Drones (HD)


The drones are marching one by one. Force fed the things that we'll become. Ready or not they're here to make your choices clear.

They're pushing up daisies in our heads. Top of the food chain but brain dead.

Teachers to make us fit their mould. Police to keep the status quo. The media conformity, a wolf amongst the mindless sheep. They're singing na na, na na na na na...

They're pushing up daisies in our heads. Top of the food chain but brain dead. Will we do what we're taught till we're six feet too short? They're pushing up daisies in our heads.

Teachers selling our souls– leave us alone. We're not gonna take it. Preachers selling our souls– leave us alone. We're not gonna take it.

They're pushing up daisies in our heads. Top of the food chain but brain dead. Will we do what we're taught till we're six feet too short? They're pushing up daisies in our; we're pushing up daisies in our... They're pushing up daisies in our heads. But we're not dead yet.

Acoustic duo 'Little Spencer' - New album & tour

During our hiatus this year we've been working on individual side projects to keep the musical juices flowing (and pay the rent). Our guitarist Bob Spencer has been spending a lot of time busking on the streets of Berlin, Germany. It's there that he met fellow Aussie guitarist Geordie Little and soon afterwards, Little Spencer was born. The acoustic duo blend nylon and steel, percussion and effects & fingerstyle and funk to create some really intricate and rhythmic soundscapes. The street performances eventually made their way into the studio and the guys have released this great new album.

If you like what you hear, support 'em by buying the download or CD on their Bandcamp page littlespencer.bandcamp.com. Little Spencer will also be touring Germany for the next 2 weeks- check out the dates on their facebook page facebook.com/littlespencermusic.
