about

The first EP from That's The Last Straw, all recorded and "mixed/mastered" ( and we say that very loosely) by the band themselves what it lacks in quality, it makes up for in good honest fun. Which I think captures the band nicely

about

That's The Last Straw Sydney, Australia

Playing the simplest of 3 chord punk, what That's the Last Straw lack in technical riffage, they make up for with an enthusiasm for having a good time playing music.

Playing with some of Australia's finest bands over their on again/off again time as a band, they have even gotten to support Guttermouth. Nobody is sure how that happened

Track Name: Alright
Another day dawns cold and grey
But I can't face another day
Can't take another one of these
Not like the last one, not again
Been over worked and underpaid
Another slave for a shitty wage
Taken for granted I've been used up
And abused here day by day

And autumn leaves litter the ground
I hear them crumple as I walk these empty streets
And when I think I'm going down
I hear your voice and then you help me to my feet
And it's alright

Punching the card in 9 -5
Doing what I can just to get by
If not for you then I would
Surely go insane but when I
Hear your footsteps crossing the floor
I know if I can't weather the storm
You'll take my hand and dance
Together in the rain and now there's

Those autumn leaves litter the ground
I hear them crumple as I walk these empty streets
And when I think I'm going down
I hear your voice and then you help me to my feet
And it's alright
Track Name: Wheelyboards & Powerchords
15 and sitting in my room
I'm all alone and feeling bored
I started skating with the
Kid from down the street a couple doors
Showed him Metallica and
He gave me "Live at the Key Club"
Landed my first kickflip in the
Car park out behind Janalli pub

And when I'm feeling melancholy
Punk rock and popping ollies
Skateboards and power chords will
Help me make it through
In my head and I am tripping
'till I go three sixty flipping
Drink a couple of beers and then I
Play a song or 2

Can't beat the feeling you get
Bombing hills the wind blowing through my hair
Or a Sunday arvo in the
Garage making music my friends
But I'm not Murtaugh and I'll
Never be too old for this shit
And I'm still dropping in
I'm playing shows and
Wrecking in the pit

And when I'm feeling melancholy
Punk rock and popping ollies
Skateboards and power chords will
Help me make it through
In my head and I am tripping
'till I go 360 flipping
Drink a couple of beers and then I
Play a song or 2
Track Name: All The Beers
All the beers, I drank 'em all
All the beers, I drank 'em all
All the beers, I drank 'em all
All the beers, All the beers

It's Friday night and
I'm going out again
I'm heading to a show
Gonna see some punk bands
I meet up with my friends
Good friends, good guys, good times
Lets get it started
Lets get it started

All the beers, I drank 'em all
All the beers, I drank 'em all
All the beers, I drank 'em all
All the beers, All the beers

Hey Mr. Barman
Pour me a cold one
I'm getting fucked up
Oh so fucked up
The bands are playing and
The drinks are flowing
Hope you don't want one
Well you can't have one

All the beers, I drank 'em all
All the beers, I drank 'em all
All the beers, I drank 'em all
All the beers, All the beers

I'm walking up my street
Just wanna go to bed
Start stripping as I walk
What a time saver
Face down into the sheets
Let darkness take me
What was I thinking
I'm never drinking again

All the beers, I drank 'em all
All the beers, I drank 'em all
All the beers, I drank 'em all
All the beers, All the beers
All the beers, I drank 'em all
All the beers, yummy yummy yum yum
All the beers, I drank 'em all
All the beers, All the beers
Track Name: Get Right
Saturday night and I'm feeling alright
But I'm feeling the itch and I need to get right
Only one cure when you're feeling like this
I'm heading to a show to get me a fix
I'm revved up pumped up heading to the city
All the boys running wild and the girls look pretty
I'm revved up pumped up heading to the city
All the boys running wild and the girls look pretty

With the rhythm pounding in my brain
And the punk rock is coursing through my veins
Only one thing is gonna sooth my soul
And I'm drinking while the bands play rock and

Rolling on down to my favorite club
I'm heading to the bar and getting my shout
All the bands are so hot and the beers are so cold
All the weeks frustrations I'm letting 'em out
Another weekend with good friends in the city
All the boys running wild and the girls look pretty
Another weekend with good friends in the city
All the boys running wild and the girls look pretty

With the rhythm pounding in my brain
And the punk rock is coursing through my veins
Only one thing is gonna sooth my soul
And I'm drinking while the bands play rock and roll
Track Name: True Love & Highway Robbery
Hey baby pack your things we'll sell your Grandma's diamond ring
We're hitting the road and we're hitting it hard
We're travelling fast we're travelling far
Gonna take the highway cause it's my way
All I see is the open sky
I ran into trouble again but don't worry baby this ain't the end
I'll tell you more when we're on the road
We don't have all that long to go
But to cut a long story short it's bad luck I brought
Don't talk just pack your bags we just have time for one last fag
Grab the money from beneath the bed
There's no need to worry your pretty head and

Jump start the god damn car
Pray to God it fucking starts
Windows down the wind at our backs
Ain't no time for looking back now

Tell you more why we gotta run just pay no attention to my gun
Things went wrong for me at the store
Now the cops are beating down my door
Plan was simple nothing to it
Roadside diner was an easy target
Johnny crouched let out a shot a teacup smashed everyone stopped
There in the door stood Mrs McIves she had her rifle by her side
Had no choice it was us or them
So I shot the old girl right through the head
I'm not proud of what I've done but come on baby we gotta run
It's dog eat dog in this crazy world
Now we gotta get outta dodge and

Jump start the god damn car
Pray to God it fucking starts
Windows down the wind at our backs
Ain't no time for looking back now

That's the truth no word of a lie
But I won't let them take me alive
Now I'm wanted for the murder
But you've never looked prettier
And I'll tell you just one thing
No matter how much shit I go through
If I have to be running
I'd rather be running with you
Track Name: Nice Guys Finish Last
I think this girls the one
She's got looks that could stun
Maybe we could have some fun
Which is totally code for sex
So we got to undressing
For a marathon session
Got to make a good impression
And you know what happens next yeah

Drift off into space
My minds in another place
So I don't dare look at her face
Because she's just so fucking cute
The look that's in her eyes
And the feeling of her thighs
She's an angel in disguise
And I'm trying not to shoot

Because if I blow this chance
And yes that puns intended
She'll kick me to the curb and then
This session will have ended
I think I love this girl so I
Don't wanna go to fast
Cause everybody knows
That nice guys finish last yeah

She pants and she gasps
I feel her nails scratch
As she arches her back
And she cries out my name
And I let out a moan
As I let myself go
And I'm feeling like a pro
I'm awesome at this game

Because I didn't blow this chance
And yes that puns intended
She's laying there in ecstasy and
This session has ended
I think I love this girl so I
Didn't go to fast
Cause everybody knows
That nice guys finish last yeah
Track Name: Never
I've been up I've been down I've been wrong and right
Had the darkest days And the brightest nights
Theres been times when the dice haven't rolled my way
Dropped out bummed round and sat on my ass
Took a little time before I chose my path
But I'm here and I love the life I've made

And I'm never never never never never gonna be the man
You want me to
And you're never ever ever ever ever gonna understand
The things I do
And I'm never never never never never gonna be the man
You want me to
And you're never ever ever ever ever gonna understand

Got a fridge with some beer and a beautiful wife
Got a decent job and I do alright
I got a bass and I got rock and roll
Why be something you don't wanna be
I can live my life and still be me
To get by you don't have to sell your soul

And I'm never never never never never gonna be the man
You want me to
And you're never ever ever ever ever gonna understand
The things I do
And I'm never never never never never gonna be the man
You want me to
And you're never ever ever ever ever gonna understand
