about

One day a group of six friends stumbled across a cave deep in the crags of Australia's southern coast. Out of the darkness a strange voice bubbled forth, beckoning the folks to come deeper whereupon they found a Great Lake hidden within.
"Come little ones, step into my embrace." Spoke the voice in soft, alluring tones. And so they did, bowing down and reaching into the lake from which they each drew an instrument imbued with great power by the lake spirit. Now they carry forth the message of their underwater queen and praise her name, Ogopogo... May all find her and embrace her.


A monstrous thank you to everyone who gave their time and energy to help create this, our first EP! Special thanks include George Johnson for his moving picture wizardry, Max Dowling and Adam Halliwell for their creative energy, the locals of Christmas Street for not filing noise complaints and Tahj the fluffiest cat ever to be sampled.

Finally, thanks to you for picking up our labour of love, supporting local music and being a great person.

We love you.

Lyrics:

Crabs!
Shuff-eling, shuff-eling crabs.
Shuff-eling, shuff-eling crabs.
Shuff-eling, shuff-eling crabs.
x2

When, they first lay eyes on you
They, they will tell all of their friends.
Crabs will come after you-ou-ou-o-ou-ou-ou and
They, they want to eat you
(panning right to left)
Gobb-eling, gobb-eling, gobb-eling, gobb-eling, and
They, want to make a picnic out of youuuuuu!

Crabs!
Shuff-eling, shuff-eling crabs.
Shuff-eling, shuff-eling crabs.
Shuff-eling, shuff-eling crabs.
x2

Beware, beware, beware, beware! CRABS!
Beware, beware, beware, beware! CRABS! CRABS!
Beware, beware, beware, beware! CRABS
!Beware, beware, beware, bewaaaaare!

Crabs will find you, there's nothing you can do.
Crabs will find you and ambush you and eat you.

In your
Ceiling

||: It's a rat tsunami pyjama party
Furry friends drinking Ice and Bacardi
Rat tsunami pyjama party
1. Secret address and invitation only :||
2. Implementing a rat society!

(shit gets heavy)

Rat-tat-tat this is a rat rap comin' at you from your ceiling.
Did I hurt your feelings with my stench comin' through the floorboards reeking
I am seeking out your scrap. Not gonna fall for no cheesy traps
You betta watch your back 'cause rat king's offspring's fillin' up this cul de sac! (ra-ba-de-bap!)
And you think you got me runnin' on a wheel. Don't you know my teeth are sharp as knives and hard as steel! (woah!)
Just 'cause we're out of sight, we ain't out of mind. Sneakin' into your room at night what a fright.
It's a rat tsunami with a terrifying appeti-tah!

(huge trumpet solo)

Track Name: Derby Girl
Lyrics:

(chanting)
yo you ma derby
Derby girl
yo you ma Derby
Roller derby girl
yo you ma derby
Roller, roller
yo you ma derby
Roller, roller..
x2

(Loretta)
She's my Derby girl,
Wants to do all the derby things.
She's my Derby girl,
Trailblazing through the roller rink.
When I put on my skates
I get that rush that I'm lookin' for.
When I chase you babeh,
I get that tinglin' feelin' in ma lower pelvic region.
x2

See all those fierce bitches
Rollin' 'round the track
All these feelings comin' up
I'm not so used to that.
Then I saw you and I swear
I knew I was comin' for you.
But you stabbed me in the back
When you bumped me down on that track
And my heart it shattered
When you didn't even look back
I thought you were the only one
But you turned out to be just like everyone else

(screaming)
BUT THEN I GOT ROOOOOOOOOOOOLLEEEDDD

She's my Derby girl,
Wants to do all the derby things.
She's my Derby girl,
Trailblazing through the roller rink.
When I put on my skates
I get that rush that I'm lookin' for.
When I chase you babeh,
I get that tinglin' feelin' in ma lower pelvic region.

(chanting)
yo you ma derby
Derby girl
yo you ma Derby
Roller derby girl
yo you ma derby
Roller, roller
yo you ma derby
Roller, roller..
