about

After over two years in the making, Canberra funksters East
Row Rabble are releasing their debut self titled EP. The final single from the EP, “Good for Me” is an upbeat blues-rock love
song with dynamic snaps and dirty horn jams. Rabble
front man Ben Drysdale actually used the song to propose
to his wife on the hills overlooking Queensland’s
Glasshouse Mountains underneath the giant “Woodfordia”
sign at the Woodford folk festival.

The EP delivers the same slick mix of funk, reggae,
blues and soul with upbeat party horn lines that fans
have come to love from the band. Addressing a mixture
of world issues and daily curiosities, Drysdale’s songs
explore the many, varied, and often conflicting elements
of any situation with honesty, hope, and a little cheekiness.

Track Name: Aliens in my Brain 2.0
Aliens in my Brain

I’ve got aliens in my brain again,
I’m acting strange again
‘cause there’s Aliens in my Brain again

They’re deleting all the files that I left open,
They’re laser frying the remnants of all of my emotions,
I’m acting strange again, cause there’s aliens in my brain again

I’m Luke Skywalker searching for a light sabre,
I’m breathing like Darth Vader,
Here they come again, those aliens in my brain again.

I’m a junkie Major Tom, without no ground control,
I’m Country Joe MacDonald, soaring on space patrol,
I’m a starship trooper with no gun,
Hal’s in charge and I’m heading for the sun,

With autopilot on,
With autopilot on.
Yeah I’m heading for the sun, but this ride just aint no fun
So I’m turning Autopilot on

Oh oh… her we go…oh no… her we go again

I’m understanding Klingon and Wookie too,
I’m a Russian cosmonaut’s cosmic spew,
I’m acting strange again, ‘cause there’s aliens in my brain again

I’m C3PO when he came unscrewed,
I’m a dalek full of attitude,
Here they come again, those aliens in my brain again.

I’m Doctor Who stuck in the Tardis before time began,
I’m a floating raving space invader in a sardine can,
this ride just aint no fun
Danger Will Robinson, you’re heading for the sun,

With autopilot on,
Autopilot on.
I’m heading for the sun, but this ride just aint no fun
So I’m turning Autopilot on

Oh oh… her we go…oh no… her we go again
Track Name: Good For Me
Good For Me

She’s got a heart of gold
And she’s easy on the eye
Took me six goddamn months
To convince her to be mine

So I just sat back, just bidin’ my time
Coz this girl’s too damn fine for me

She’s like a little Disney princess
All covered in tattoos
A little Norma Jean,
And a little Betty Boop

Man, you throw it all together a what’s a man supposed to do
This girl’s to damn cute for me

She can make magic on a canvass
With a tin of gold paint
She’s a little bit of sinner
And a whole lotta saint

Man you think I’m jokin’, I can tell you I aint
Coz this girl’s too damn quaint for me

She don’t mind if I’m up late at night
Or if I sleep half the day
And when I got the blues
She knows just what to say

And if that just don’t help loves me quietly anyway
This girl’s way too good for me

She gives her heart and soul
Helping others in need
And if you got her back baby
She got your back indeed

And there’s no sign of spite, envy, malice or greed
Coz this girl’s too damn sweet for me

She don’t mind my thinnin’ hair
Or my widening waist
And even if she did
The girl’s too kind to say

So no matter whatever whenever wherever I’m goin her way
This girl’s too damn great for me


So there aint no doubt about it
No its plain to see
This girl aint no girl
If she aint the right girl for me

So I got right down right there down on bended knee
Sang girl….

Won’t you marry me
Track Name: One for the Kokonut
One for the Kononut
Well I found you in that black box filled with light
Spewin’ out the brilliant mind that lay behind the vibrant sparkles in your eyes,
Your feet firm on the ground, you helped me find what needed to be found
And we reached for the stars, who knows one day we might just get that far

And you helped me through the hardest times
And you left me with a stronger heart and mind
And there’s nothing I can do but always keep a piece of you with me
Until the end of time, by remembering the times

We lived the good life, we strolled the sandy shores
we drank that cheap wine, ‘cause that way we could have more
And we laughed until it hurt, and we slept upon the dirt so we could dance until we couldn’t dance no more
‘Til we slept so we could dance a little more

Then you came across the pond,
And won the hearts of all those dear and fond to me,
When we jumped into the Ocean, you were stung in just a moment
And you sewed beneath the vines and
Crafted works of art for me and mine
made the fire dance
Never scared to take a chance

And you always you knew exactly what to say
And you loved to goof around and fool and play
And there’s nothing we can do but thank the stars we got to laugh with you
And spend a little time, remembering times



We lived the good life, we strolled the sandy shores
We drank the cheap wine, that way we could have more
And we laughed until it hurt, and we slept upon the dirt so we could dance until we couldn’t dance no more
‘Til we slept so we could dance a little more

Hey there little miss Koko-nut
Brighten every day, fill the world with love
Put smiles on the faces every where you go
From way down under over mexico

You sure turned lemons into lemonade
brought joy to every single friend you ever made
this world won’t shine as bright without in it
I hope somewhere you can here me sing it

We lived the good life, we strolled the sandy shores
We drank that cheap wine, that way we could have more
And we laughed until it hurt, and we slept upon the dirt so we could dance until we couldn’t dance no more
‘Til we slept so we could dance a little more

We fought the good fight, we trekked into the forest
We drank that cheap wine, that way there would be more for us
And laughed until we cried, and we stared up at the sky so we could watch the birds go dance among the clouds, and I know you’re up there dancing with them now
