Michael Henaghan This 6 tracker is over in a flash but RRRags, a Belgian Blues Rock Power Trio, leave their mark. From the soulful 1-2 of 'Bones' and 'Rag Machine', complete with the incendiary guitar pyrotechnics that distinguishes this record , it is obvious we are on to something righteous here. The hook-laden 'Silence Is Deafining' and sedate 'Faraway Faces' only reinforces this notion. The brilliant closer 'Galaxy's Hygiene' is a joy to behold, its 10 minute length leaving you gasping for more. Favorite track: Faraway Faces.

abnormal_listening_habits This sounds like that now defunct band Cry of Love with Audley Freed and as Bucky said lots of Gov't Mule influence throughout, if you like these guys check them out! They really show their stuff on Galaxy's Hygiene. Favorite track: Galaxy's Hygiene.

Bones 03:01
Heart of honey and eyes of stone Restless mind and an innocent soul A lust for liquor and a greedy nose A witch for a mother and a bag of bones Out for some more of the same old ways Wasting your time til' the light of day Got your pale white boogie mask on High speed strut keeps you moving on Eyes on infinity marching a road to nowhere As you're dragging that bag of bones That bag full of bones Honey I know that life ain't easy and you better learn that life ain't fair But there ain't no use in waitin for those cloudy skies to clear Take a hard look at yourself and be who you wanna be Instead of draggin that bag of bones Your bag full of bones Saw you the other night lookin like a rag Drifting around with the same old bag Wish I could rip that thing from your hands And bury it deep in the dirt of the badlands You're dragging that bag of bones That bag full of bones, oh yeah That bag of bones Your bag full of bones

Rag Machine 04:29
Gather round people by the rag machine Buzzin up the house tonight Got the grease up the wheels and our engine runnin tight Riding the waves of the bassline Groove like a needle in a phonograph Floatin the funk like a butterfly on the loose Now light up your worries and burn em up Tear up your fears tonight Lay off the chains and sing a song Make up the story as you go along Back in the saddle for a new ride Ready for the good and the hard times Life can get cold but we're coming to fuel up the fire Strap on your guitar, guitar man Show em how a freebird flies Play a blue song and guide us to a good time, oh yeah Light up your worries and burn em up Tear up your fears tonight Lay off the chains and sing a song Make up the story as you go along Drag all your troubles to the boneyard Shine up your soul in the moonlight Pick up the pieces of your broken heart and make it brand new Something is-a-buzzin in the house tonight Funkativity aplenty in the air Open up wide, reach out and touch it if you dare Now light up your worries and burn em up Tear up your fears tonight Lay off the chains and sing a song Make up the story as you go along

Future's written When it rains and pours For what could've been can be no more The tide is high, my friend, guess it always was Change of seasons Result and cause The silence is deafening In the eye of the storm Trouble behind us And trouble to come Skies still threatening An eerie silence When you're locked inside And the pressure rises Vivid memories of better times A place to heal or a place to hide The silence is deafening In the eye of the storm Trouble behind us More trouble to come Sooner or later You'll get dragged along No use in hiding Gotta carry on

The light was deep and the floor far away As the lizard man was talking to me He said: you gotta take a walk through the dark cause that's the only way you'll learn how to see Straighten your back Clear your mind and follow my track Twisting and turning On with the journey Out of the dungeon and into the wild My head is buzzin and my spirit alive Pouring rain, burning skies Sailing the ocean of time Follow the track Take a leap to forever and back Twisting and turning On with the journey Now as we're standing at the gates of dawn And a different light trickles inside I grab my coat and walk out the door Gonna roll with the punches and ride Lay down your track Hit the road and never look back Twisting and turning On with the journey

I wade through a strangeland in a strange time Everything's quiet but nothing is right With every move I sink into a heavier groove And the night shows traces of faraway faces Sparrows dancing round the streetlights Straydogs howling at the moon The air is cold and thin As the nightsky weeps, bruised and broken The night shows traces of faraway faces Used to be a room here, full of music Used to be colours strong and bright No solid ground, no sign of life, no sound Empty spaces and faraway faces
