    That song about the "thousand helicopters coming over the rise". What band is that? Anyone got a link to the lyrics?

    Cheers

  • No link but I'm pretty sure the band is 'National Prayer Breakfast'.




  • Yup, Thousand Helicopters by NPB. Its on the This is My Happening and it XXXXX Me Up album.

    Think they've been broken up for a while & their label's site seems to have dissapeared so finding lyrics could be a problem.

    Good song, good band.




  • I had the MP3 on my computer so this was a good way of avoiding work for 10 minutes...

    A thousand helicopters coming over the rise
    A thousand helicopters and to my surprise
    Those boys got guns those boys got knives!
    A thousand helicopters coming over the rise

    Trying to inject us with the truth and the light
    Trying to co-opt us with adjustable sights
    I've done my sums, I've done them right
    A thousand helicopters coming over the rise

    Send me to the Front, it's what I what I want!

    A thousand helicopters coming through the night
    A thousand helicopters got me in their sights
    Those boys got scopes, those boys ain't right!
    A thousand helicopters coming over the rise

    I built a heat detector with adjustable sights
    I made myself director, we expanded in size
    Did they come you know I'm right
    A thousand helicopters coming over the rise

    Send me to the Front, it's what I what I want!




  • Damnation. So much for getting a notification.

    Sorry for the late response but thanks a mill.

  • These boys knew how to do promos. I remember being at a gig years ago and they gave out an EP wrapped in a cool grease papery poster, and their press release was done on A4 pad looking stuff. Nice effect all round.
    Years later the poster still has a place on my wall and the EP still gets some spins.




  • I will pay someone 20 euro for a copy of this album
