In April 2007 we played our debut gig and have since released a 7"/CD-EP entitled Polyglamorous and an album called After the Beep on F-Spin. Influenced by early Riot-Grrrls as Sleater-Kinney and Bikini Kill we try and merge the old school fierce attitude of such bands with the more quirky and innovative pop history ... more

Track Name: Blockshot - Organized Activism
Whatever happens happens
whatever happens causes something else to happen
inevitable consequences are responsibilities that humans shy away from

If you don’t hear what people say
you will never change your ruthless ways
and every path you’ve trampled on
is a piece of soil forever gone.

It’s a tragedy
who’s outside will be sent away
and you feel so smug and warm
in your death star cauldron
Track Name: Blockshot - ‘Til you drop
I’m so excited I can’t wait for the grand opening
tear down the old bar and clubs and restaurants and build the new ones right into the mall
A masterpiece of infrastructure ensures that I can have a latté regardless of what I’m shopping for
These shoes they were invented to make me feel like I am barefoot
So why go actually barefoot if the simulation is so much prettier?

Isn’t it - Look at it - quite a bargain and I think I got the last ones
envy me but remember you can never compete with me I am the shopping queen

I got 3 for the price of 2. Three what? Who cares I’m sure I’ll need them soon. Special offer, box set. I’m saving money by spending it.
I just bought this shiny can of pure oxygen
It’s not only the content it’s the packaging that makes for beauty and quality

Isn’t it? Look at it. Why don’t you buy oxygen, how can you live without oxygen? Are you a nitrogen alien? You must be destroyed.
Track Name: Blockshot - Eldorado, my ass
Has it really come to this? Existences obscured as myths
While our brains are being dissected and atrocities are resurrected

Camouflage permeating our autonomy
The closets are locked from within although they appear to be empty
if you don’t televise your concern and we cannot profit from your burden
you’re condemned to remain silent

Escape
this is a trap
this is a census
of the abject
Track Name: Blockshot - Mythologies
She was illuminated she was led by alight
into a darkness where I found her
Always last selection in the ballgame
I had love for outcasts and endurance abundance

Everyone else seemed to know what was best for her
but who's to put themselves above another human soul?
Doctors, parents, friends and judges decided she needed a rest
and all because of the assumption life was better than death

Locked up and secluded she never came back,
the constant crying from her room spared her hourly checks
I once came to visit the person now so far away
a broken silhouette of herself was I led astray?

She never got any better, was that the treatment or the disease
at least she didn't die in vain, original of all out pain
crucified for our sanity, we say:

Thank god we didn't end up this way
