This is maximum rock`n`roll . Four portuguese kids know to us the parkinsons moved to london and – with a diet of grime,dirt and feedback – live to fuck shit up, and leave a good looking mess”


“...The band quickly becasme Camden Stars, with their chaotic live shows inevitably attarcting the attention of drooling A&R men”

Isto é a máxima do rock 'n ' roll. 4 miudos portugueses, conhecidos como os The Parkinsons, mudaram-se para Londres e, numa dieta de sujidade, distorcao e feedback, vivem para partir tudo e deixar tudo em confusao..."

"… a banda tornou-se rapidamente na banda estrela de Camden, com os seus concertos caoticos, inevitavelmente atraindo a atenção dos olheiros da industria discográfica.

Track Name: Bad Girl
Bad Girl

She's a bad girl, she's a bad girl
One, two, one, two, three, four

She's a bad girl, she's a bad girl
She's a bad girl, she's a bad girl
Out in the streets with nothing to do
She's so mean big eyes on you
She's a bad girl with nothing to do

She's a bad girl, she's a bad girl
One, two, one, two, three, four
Track Name: Angel in the Dark
Angel In The Dark

Back to reality
I'm just a sin
I'm a memory
From a pleasant dream

Angel in the dark
Dressed in black to save my day
Angel in the dark
Dressed in black to save my day
Track Name: Pill
Pill

There's a party in my mind
I'll sleep with the beast another night
Another pill another flight
There's a party in my mind
Track Name: Primitive
Primitive

I wanna walk and live like a primitive
I wanna work and stink like a sex machine
I wanna burn in hell like a human being
Somebody will have to guess my name
Somebody will have to guess my name
oh, baby, it's a long way to nowhere
Track Name: Somerstown
Somerstown

Every time I close the windows of my soul
I take a trip to the shadows of my world
But the call of the town is so strong and so loud
and it makes me wanna live in Somerstown

Every time I see the junkies outside my door
Swinging their needles and praying for another score
But the call of the town is so strong and so loud
and it makes me wanna live in Somerstown

I don't know what to do
I want a room with a view
I want to stay with you
In the heart of Somerstown
Track Name: Bedsity City
BEDSIT CITY(STREETS OF LONDON)

In the heart of the city
lives a man
in a bedsit
in a bedsit

In his room cabin fever
lost his dreams
in a bedsit
in a bedsit

In the streets of London
covered in gold
is a shadow in the distance
a pain for the world
he came from the flatlands
the stinking suburbs
he lives in the streets
Streets of London
Track Name: Universe
Universe

Every boy needs a girl
Like every flower needs a bee
It's the law of the universe
Every dream has an end
Like every story has its slaves
It's the law of the universe

Night just follows the day
Day just follows the night
Moon just kissed the sun
And every day is just like the other night

I don't know what's wrong
Life's such a joke
I follow the rules of the universe
I don't know what's wrong
Life's such a joke
I live by the rules of the universe
Track Name: Reason to Resist
Reason to resist:

I,m just a Fungus in the heart of society
I,m just the one who takes what you give
Why don,t you tell me
Why don,t you tell me
why don,t you give me a reason to resist

I,m just a victim living in the killing zone
I kill my idols with the course of my songs
Why don,t you tell me
Why don,t you tell me
why don,t you give me a reason to resist

Don,t be scared of tomorrow , it,s a moment to resist
Don,t be scared of tomorrow , it,s a moment to resist
Track Name: Too Many Shut-ups
Too Many Shut Ups

Too many questions drive a man insane
I'm waiting for reactions from my little brain
I look to myself and I feel so bad
I'll start a new religion with god in hell

Too too many shut ups
Too too many shut ups

cos your brain got no energy
