Schemes 04:20
I wish I could set myself free But I take comfort in routine I wish I had the fortitude To make it happen or make it gone I wish I had the wisdom to know what’s real And the strength to carry on I waste so much time Trying to make sense of everything I see Those who hate me most Are just the people living in my head Are they the ones that I should trust They’re the ones that seem to make most sense I cut myself so I can bleed The guilt, the rage and everything between In the end I have to admit When all is said and done I never had the courage to let things go Or the strength to be alone I waste so much time Trying to make sense of everything I see Those who think I’m mad Are just the people living in my head Are they the ones that I should trust? Are they the ones I should listen to instead? I spent my life Feeding myself into the machine Please don’t make the same mistakes You’ll have nothing to show For your best laid schemes I waste so much time Trying to make sense of everything I see Those who scare me most Are just the people living in my head I should have known they should never be trusted Take my advice don’t ever listen to them

“LOW” – THE SILVER BAYONETS This disguise I wear each day Says this isn't all that I am Outward poise and inner turmoil Self-disrupt whenever I can I hurt myself where you can't see Our meeting was a revelation I can't seem to ever stop Falling for these complications Low I have coped and will again But this isn't how things should be I know how this story ends This disposal is what everyone needs Low Everything that you create Is a chance at immortality But I know all I've ever made Will fade into your memory There will be no cry for help There will be no desperate plea There will be no exhibition Self-destruct the end of me Low When I miss you in the middle of the night When there's no-one there to make things right When there's no distance between now and the end When I think I'm gonna hurt myself again Low

about

UBER ROCK - Ben Hughes (June 2015)


Gigging around London town for the last couple of years The Silver Bayonets recently released their debut long player, 'The Pain Inside Your Head'. A fuzzy guitar-driven, Power Pop styled album by a band influenced by the likes of Nirvana, Husker Du and The Manics.


Here, the London based 3 piece run through 11 tracks, fuelled on nothing but energy drinks, the influence of some big bands with even bigger melodies and a desire to bring the world their brand of loud, addictive guitar music.


Opener 'Schemes' shows much promise, from the ringing open chords to the anthemic "woah woah" vocals, onto some nice start/stop bits. It comes on like Mega City Four meets real early Manics and that's a good place to be in my book.


It's clear after several tracks that frontman/songwriter Kabir Sheikh has a knack for penning a catchy tune or two. 'High Life' punches in all the right places, with those classic anthemic stop/start riffs The Wildhearts always gave us and it has infectious melodies to back it up.


'Constant' will trouble your mind wondering where they pinched that opening riff from, it brings to mind Mega City Four again to my ears.


The likes of 'Forever' has the perfect Power Pop ingredients, the right mix of melody and harmony. Jangly guitars and the ramshackle delivery in 'Your Complex Life' has a certain Libertines/Pixies feel to it that sits quite nicely and there's some great pop sensibilities going on here. Early nineties Power Pop with indie rock stylings, that's what I'm going with and I'm going to stick with it.


My only criticism would be the production, the whole album does have a demo quality to it. While the vocals of frontman/guitar player Kabir Sheikh are at times strained, the songs are strong and stand tall. What it lacks in the production department it makes up for in enthusiasm and absolute energy.


The Silver Bayonets prove they are capable of passionate, emotive stadium-sized chunks of Power Pop. With a bit of coaxing in the right direction I feel they could go places. A great band waiting to happen and worth checking out.
