Lyrics
I stand on Juggernaut Road
Alone in the maddening crowd
their passion
for imitation
is voluntary
slavery

behind the policemen lines
they’re waving flags and holding signs
they throw flowers
for the powers
that parade
on the motorcade


Here I stand
With empty hands
Not knowing what to do
There’s a thrill
That I can feel
But I think it’s coming from you

I see the chariot coming
Feel the panic and the pushing
There is a rush
There is a crush
The blood-red wheels
And the roadkills

the bloody bodies in its wake
they make me feel fully awake
I’ll be better
Somewhere safer
When they’ll riot
For a scapegoat

Here I stand
And I hold your hand
Though I don’t know you
Be it nation
Or salvation
We’ve got better things to do

Kick ass beat, killer guitars
You know I aint missing anymore of these songs,
I like this space age Punk rock, the guitar during the break is Phantasmagoric!

Fresh track!
I like this a lot. I really haven't heard anything like this before. The guitars sound nice and raw and I like the way you've sung it too.

split guitar duties
from one single guitarist with a split personality. I have split personnality myself, but, fortunately, it's twice the same.

Space punk
This is pretty different for you JC - more of an electro feel, which i really like. Great guitar work - nasty and buzzy - for some reason reminds me of Rose of Avalanche. This feels epic but ends too soon ... coulda been twice as long

good to have ya back!

space punk
Yes. I feel it could last longer, but I don't where to go after the long break. What I tell myself is that it's a story about simply walking away at some point.

Nice tones!
Love the vibe here.Like the vocal approach and style.Felt the piece could benefit greatly from a extra dose of thump in the drum department,for that boost would surely compliment those killer guitars.Still most enjoyable.

Blessings,

thump up
I agree again. Everything was pretty much in the red and i have to take something down. I'll try again with that extra thump.

skanky
That's what this song is: skanky. I LOVE the guitar tones you got here. The vocals are absolutely inspired. The open reverb in the break lets you come up for air. Very cool and....skanky.

The Noise Boys
You Hamlet Machine guys are really evolving. Your level of noise has intensified to the heights of the Jesus and Mary Chain gang. The controlled bursts of guitar are what I find to be the most interesting. The clean electro beats are really working well. CJ - great lyrics and singing on this one. By the way, Bob's not dead.

Bob's not dead
That's good news !

Brentford is doing the outbursts, I'm doing the control. As I always say, his style of playing is downright skanky.

This song is bit cluttered right now, but I have some other in the pipes for you.

I like it
There's a Far Side cartoon in which there's a crowd of penguins or something. And all of them are holding up signs that say something like, "I'm different!" except one penguin, whose sign says, "Not me."

This song reminds me of that cartoon.

Great writing as always and lush sound.

the far side rules
The hamlet machines are fans.My favorite one shows a kangaroo on a window ledge outside a skycraper, and the cop says "looks like he's going to jump."

Estellie In The Funnies
CJ - why is it your fans seem to keep their noses in the funny papers?

I like the Far Side comic where Lucy pulls the football out from Charlie Brown a second before he kicks it and he falls flat on his big giant head.
