STOP DROP ROBOT – MURDER THE DRUMS ft JOE GREEN
Stop Drop Robot, aka SDR, is an electronic rock band, that hails from Sheffield, UK.
I asked frontman, Sam Christie, a few questions about the band and the song, Murder The Drums ft Joe Green.
Here is what, Sam, had to say!
These lyrics are a mouthful. How do you keep the beat, when singing on stage?
I’ve been singing for a long time, so had a lot of practise. Dan, our drummer, is very reliable and makes it easy, for the rest of us, to stay in time.
I noticed that Dan, can sure play drums! I have always, had a love for percussion.
Sam, what instrument do you like to play, other than voice?
Bass guitar is great fun and easy to play. If I wasn’t a singer, I’d be a bassist, they have an easy job.
Ha! Yeah, bass is def cool! Sure I can quote that, without ruffling feathers?!
I like Matt’s strong stage presence, what do you enjoy most, about Matt, on stage?
Matt brings the noise, we love him.
Yeah, Matt is a good guy!
And super Nathan?
I love Nathan’s voice and how I hear Ringo, when he speaks. Or am I imagining things?
Haha maybe 😀 they are both drone, the north of England.
Hmmm. I love it.
I like your voice a lot.
What do you remedy your throat with, on the night you sing?
I like to drink cider, lager, Jägermeister and plenty of water.
Thirsty, I bet!
What Sheffield music legacy, have you recently, embraced?
Sheffield is a great place. A lot of great bands have come before us and we hope to add to our city’s electronic sound and advance it further, so it sounds modern and exciting.
So good, so far!
What is the up-coming gig, you mentioned, with other local bands?
Top secret :p 😀
C’mon man! Top Secret, does sound like it could be, an awesome event name!
If I had a band, I would name it, Free Sex. How did you, come up with your band name?
What exactly, is a Stop Drop Robot?
You would have to ask Nathan lol he came up with our name. 😀
Thank you, Sam, for being available, to chat about the band.
Murder The Drum’s ft Joe Green is Lady Corvid G’s favourite SDR song, with her encouragement and Sam’s help, I nailed the lyrics.
Here they are! Enjoy.
Murder The Drums ft Joe Green lyrics by Stop Drop Robot
Can the drummer get some
Ladies and Gentlemen
Give it up 4x
Well, these 4 walls are closing in
Yeah and it’s been that way
Ever since time began
What do they want from me
What have I done to them
All they left me withs a fractured imagination
See the crowds take a shot at me
Cus when I murder the drums
Like I am second to none
All my open scars
hammer a nail
into the coffin marked your preconceptions
See the stars realign for me
You know it’s funny
Oh how we laugh
when I hold the drumsticks in my hand
I decide my own destiny
I decide where the beat needs to be
I decide not them
well out there there’s all these blood suckers trying to run it
don’t it just make you sick to your stomach
I’ll show the puppeteers where to shove it
on the day they crown me king
Thank you, Stop Drop Robot, for permission, to post these lyrics.
