    WHO DIDN'T WANT TO BE IN A PUNK ROCK BAND?
    (Riff Regan)

    Who didn't want to be in a punk rock band?
    Who didn't want to live in punk rock land?
    Who didn't want to be in a punk rock band?
    Back then…

    I had a mate, hated his lot
    Let’s quit dumb town, give our best shot
    We formed a band, plugged in
    Next thing you know, we’re making this din
    Next thing you know, we’re a firing pin

    We played in Liverpool, Brighton too
    Played any time anywhere, paid our dues
    We’d turn up, walk out and play
    Next thing we know they want us to stay
    Next thing we know we’re on our way

    Who didn't want to be in a punk rock band?
    Who didn't want to live in punk rock land?
    Who didn't want to be in a punk rock band?
    Back then…

    We saw all the cities in transit vans
    Met all the pretties who said they’re fans
    Wrote a few songs along the way
    Next thing we know we wanted to stay
    Next thing we know it’s NME day

    Who didn't want to be in a punk rock band?
    Who didn't want to live in punk rock land?
    Who didn't want to be in a punk rock band?
    Back then…

    And you try to tell me
    That those weren't the best days
    I can think of none better
    Each day red letter
    And you try to tell me
    I was wasting my time
    Well you did your thing
    And I did mine

    I had a mate, hated his lot
    Let’s quit dumb town, give our best shot
    We formed a band, plugged in
    Next thing you know, we’re making this din
    Next thing you know, we’re a firing pin

    Who didn't want to be in a punk rock band?

    DISTRESS FLARE
    (Riff Regan/Steve Voice)

    Sometimes it’s right
    Sometimes it’s wrong
    You walk into the night
    Where you don’t belong
    Sometimes it’s red
    Sometimes it’s black
    Sometimes you know
    You can never go back

    I’m firing up a distress flare
    Bright white light, lighting up the air
    I’m firing up a distress flare
    Come to my rescue
    Answer my prayer

    Sometimes you win
    Sometimes you lose
    Sometimes you spin
    But still get the bruise
    Sometimes you laugh
    Sometimes you cry
    Sometimes you walk away
    You don’t even try

    I’m firing up a distress flare
    Bright white light, lighting up the air
    I’m firing up a distress flare
    Come to my rescue
    Answer my prayer

    The blackest night is the only one I know
    I’ve tried to fight it sometimes
    But it just won’t let me go

    I’m firing up a distress flare
    Bright white light, lighting up the air
    I’m firing up a distress flare
    Come to my rescue
    Answer my prayer

    Sometimes it’s good
    Sometimes it’s bad
    Sometimes you feel
    So hopeless and sad
    Sometimes you’re up
    Sometimes you’re down
    Sometimes you need a friend
    But no-one’s around

    I’m firing up a distress flare etc

    CALL THE SHOTS
    (Riff Regan)

    There was a time when you had it all
    Had the power to make me feel small
    Now that’s all melted away
    Your moment was yesterday

    There was a time when you couldn’t do wrong
    A Notting Hill peacock struttin’ along
    But that’s all fading away
    In the end I could not stay

    You don’t call the shots no more
    You once did, but not any more
    You don’t call the shots no more
    I’m leaving today, through that door

    There was a time when you had it made
    But your appeal’s starting to fade
    Now that’s all turning to grey
    Your moment has slipped away

    There was a time when I trusted you
    Now your words don’t ring true
    Not a lot more I can say
    I have to be on my way

    You don’t call the shots no more
    You once did, but not any more
    You don’t call the shots no more
    I’m leaving today, through that door

    You thought I was an easy touch
    Never going to amount to much
    Things have changed and now I know
    It’s time to move, it’s time to grow
    You thought that I’d never leave
    But I found I cannot breath
    I have to go and get on my way
    I won’t be coming back to stay – no, no

    There was a time when you had it all
    Had the power to make me feel small
    Now that’s all melted away
    Your moment was yesterday

    There was a time when you couldn’t do wrong
    A Notting Hill peacock struttin’ along
    But that’s all fading away
    In the end I could not stay

    You don’t call the shots no more
    You once did, but not any more
    You don’t call the shots no more
    I’m leaving today, through that door
    You don’t call the shots no more
    You once did, but not any more
    You don’t call the shots no more
    I’m leaving today, through that door

    You Call Me Lucky recorded in 1980 at Island Studios with Riff Regan (vocals), Jon Moss (drums), Lu Edmonds (guitar), Gavin Povey (keyboards), Glyn Havard (bass), Brinsley Schwarz (guitar) & Ian Ritchie (saxophone). Produced by Liam Sternberg.

    YOU CALL ME LUCKY
    (Riff Regan)

    It's unromantic in the city
    You have to pay
    To dance the night away
    I haven't got any money
    There must be another way
    To make you stay with me

    If I don't have your love
    I haven't got anything to call my
    Only what I've already lost
    Some people call me insecure
    And others call me immature
    You call me lucky

    It's a crazy world we live in
    It's changing day by day
    One minute I make my mind up
    And then I see it in a different way

    I'm confused as the rest
    I only want to take what is the best
    I'll go along for the ride
    But deep inside I'm always changing
    Deep inside I'm always faking
    You call me lucky

    If I don't have your love
    I haven't got anything to call my
    Only what I've already lost
    Some people call me insecure
    And others call me immature
    You call me lucky

    Lucky
    You call me lucky

    JACOBY ISLAND
    (Riff Regan)

    When all is said and done
    The only thing that gets you through
    Is you
    Don’t let stars have all the fun
    You’ve got to have your own run too

    She’s been talking paradise
    And all the things that look so nice
    To her. But only to her
    But if she had some cash
    She’d jump on a plane so fast
    And go. Oh man would she go

    Jacoby Island’s in your own back-yard
    You’ll find it
    Jacoby Island’s there so look very hard
    You’ll find it
    You can imagine everything come true
    I can imagine ... YOU

    Get your skates on, use your head
    Send a telegram addressed to you
    When it’s there you tell them all
    You’re taking off for Honolulu

    She’s been talking all day long
    About problems that just don’t go away
    Don’t go away
    I’ve been chalking up what’s wrong
    The remedy’s a three week holiday
    La, la, la, la, la la

    Jacoby Island’s in your own back-yard
    You’ll find it
    Jacoby Island’s there so look very hard
    You’ll find it
    You can imagine everything come true
    I can imagine ... YOU

  • Riff Regan - Hard Hearts Dont Cry

    3:06

    Hard Hearts Don't Cry recorded in 1981 at IBC studios, London. Produced by Andy Miller.

    HARD HEARTS DON'T CRY
    (Riff Regan/Andy Miller)

    Every now and then
    I think a lot about you
    And I wish I had an answer for
    Why I woke up early that morning
    And kicked you out the door
    I didn't even give you time to pack
    Or phone for a taxi cab

    Hard hearts don't cry
    So why do I
    Cry over you?

    Remember the time
    When we met at that party
    And you were dressed out to kill
    I've never seen anybody look better
    And I doubt if I ever will
    You played so hard to get
    But in the end I got

    Hard hearts don't cry
    So why do I
    Cry over you?
    Hard hearts don't cry
    So why do I
    Cry over you?

    If you get this letter
    And you feel a little lonely
    Do you think that we could start again?
    'Cos my tears are falling like raindrops on paper
    When I think of what I had then
    So much rock 'n' roll, love and joy
    For a pretty young girl and her boy

    Hard hearts don't cry
    So why do I
    Cry over you?
    Hard hearts don't cry
    So why do I
    Cry over you?

    ON THE ROCKS
    (Riff Regan)

    This is over
    This is the end
    There’s no more to say or do
    No more secrets
    No lies to mend
    It’s time to admit we’re through

    Both of us know
    That if you get up and go
    Never leave your baggage behind
    I’m sure I’ll miss
    Your touch and your kiss
    How could we know
    It would end up like this?

    We’re stuck on the rocks
    Fighting and feudin’, dodging the knocks
    We’re stuck on the rocks
    Pushing and shoving, heads on the block
    Nobody wants to back down
    Not me, not you
    Not me, not you

    It’s a bad situation
    No winners here
    Best we both walk away
    Had enough confrontation
    Had it up to here
    Just want it to go away

    Both of us know
    That if you get up and go
    Never leave your baggage behind
    I’m sure I’ll miss
    Your touch and your kiss
    How could we know
    It would end up like this?

    We’re stuck on the rocks
    Fighting and feudin’, dodging the knocks

    ALL THE NICE BOYS & GIRLS IN THE WORLD
    (Riff Regan)

    Johnny's no fool
    When he leaves school
    He's gonna charge
    He always was a bull
    In a china shop

    And Jake's pretty late
    In his adolescence phase
    When the doctor said 'Cough'
    Jake said 'Get lost'
    To his face

    And Jenny's good looking
    And yet she's pursuing
    A life in the theatre of crime
    It's just a sign of the times

    All the nice boys and girls in the world are lonely
    Haven't you heard?
    They're lonely.

    All the nice boys and girls in the world are lonely
    Haven't you heard?
    They're lonely

    Simon sleeps in his attic, sometimes gets erratic
    But he's a good guy
    A football fanatic
    On a Saturday

    And Millie's been and seen 'Emmanuelle' twice
    Could be the start of something very nice
    In a strange kind of way

    The kids on the street think that rock 'n' roll is dead
    Too many poseurs filling up their heads with lies
    It's just a sign of the times

    All the nice boys and girls in the world are lonely
    Haven't you heard?
    They're lonely.

    All the nice boys and girls in the world are lonely
    Haven't you heard?
    They're lonely

    Jackie's walking up and down
    Late night shopping with a frown
    Always buys her clothes down the King's Road
    From a friend in the trade

    Judy thinks it's fate
    That she's never got a date
    Too busy reading star signs and make up your mind times
    It's never too late

    All the nice boys and girls in the world are lonely
    Haven't you heard?
    They're lonely.

    All the nice boys and girls in the world are lonely
    Haven't you heard?
    They're lonely

    Nothing will ever be the same
    I need you to believe in me
    Relight my flame
    This guy’s a mess
    But you will change him

    This guy’s in bits
    It’s so very true
    Each time you look at me
    I know just what to do
    I need an angel
    Who can help me to pull through
    This guy’s a mess
    But you will change him

    I’ve fallen down
    I must get back up on my feet
    I’ve been such a long time alone
    You came along and you made my life complete
    With you I’m on my way home

    This guy’s mixed-up
    But he’s willing to learn
    With you beside me
    I can make that turn
    I just need someone
    Who wants me as I am

    THAT SHIP HAS SAILED
    (Riff Regan/Steve Voice)

    Too much talking baby is bringing me down
    I want to walk out and leave you
    Get out of this town
    It’s over, it’s over so easy to see
    When I leave this house
    Don’t come following me

    Don’t want to talk about a love that failed
    Listen girl… that ship has sailed

    Things have been tough, that much I know
    It’s barely believable
    But that’s how life goes
    Take it or leave it, whatever you choose
    Just don’t come looking
    I'm leaving no clues

    Don’t want to talk about a love that failed
    Listen girl… that ship has sailed

    Too much fighting baby is bringing me down
    You knew that when you met me, I am what I am
    Face it or forget it but make up your mind
    ‘Cos one way or another, I've made up mine

    Don’t want to talk about a love that failed
    Listen girl… that ship has sailed

    THE ONLY ONE
    (Riff Regan)

    Last night I realised that
    You’re not the girl
    I thought you were
    Last night you took me for a ride

    Last night I gave up everything
    That I was searching for
    Last night I wasn't satisfied

    I heard on the radio phone
    You’d not spent the night alone
    You’d been out on a joyride
    With a couple of boys from the east side
    And the guilty one not to come
    Must have been the only one

    The only one, the only one
    The only one, the only one

    If I had the patience and the will
    I'm sure I’d let it ride
    But a decision must be made
    I phoned up Nancy half past two
    She said you would be late
    Something about a lucky guy

    I heard on the seven o'clock
    They’d found your body down by the dock
    And they’d interviewed the guy
    Who found the bombers down by the quay side
    He was playing dumb
    Must have been the only one

    The only one, the only one
    The only one, the only one
    The only one, the only one
    The only one, the only one

    Last night you took me just as far
    As you could take me down
    Last night you really pushed your luck
    Last night you must have been
    The only girl around in town
    Who didn't know her time was up

    They’ve got a kid down at the jail
    They’re not allowing him any bail
    They think they've got the guy
    But you know something and so do I
    Now I'm on the run
    I must have been the only one

    The only one, the only one
    The only one, the only one
    The only one, the only one
    The only one, the only one

    CAUGHT IN THE HEADLIGHTS
    (Riff Regan)

    You thought I’d never see you - I did
    Cheating and lying, there’s no denying
    Caught you red handed - I did
    Up to your tricks, getting your kicks

    You thought I’d never catch you - I did
    Ducking and diving, as I went by driving
    Getting your thrills as you did
    Now I know we've got nowhere to go

    You were caught in the headlights
    Now our love is dead
    I don't know how you sleep nights
    I can’t get it out of my head
    You were caught in the headlights
    As guilty as could be
    Our love’s gonna need last rites
    Something has died, it’s over for me, over for me

    You thought I wouldn't tumble - I did
    Deceiving and weaving once had me believing
    It’s time to nail down the lid
    There’s nowhere to go, no rope to throw

    You thought I'd never hear you - I did
    Two timing and lying, as my heart was dying
    Heard you talk dirty – I did
    It’s hardly strange, some things don’t change

    You were caught in the headlights
    Now our love is dead
    I don't know how you sleep nights
    I can’t get it out of my head
    You were caught in the headlights
    As guilty as could be
    Our love’s gonna need last rites
    Something has died, it’s over for me, over for me

    You thought I’d never see you - I did

    Caught you red handed - I did

    RUSSIAN BLUE
    (Riff Regan)

    There’s a time and a place for everybody
    A time to come and a time to go
    We’ve reached the end of our line
    No more sticks or stones to throw

    Somebody scribbled ‘Help me’ on my mirror
    Had a look and realised it was me
    We’re both talking at once
    But nobody’s listening, nobody’s listening

    The sands of time are nearly through
    Not much more to say or do
    I bit off more than I could chew
    I’m leaving here
    Goodbye… Russian Blue

    At the start it was a roller-coaster
    Never met anyone quite like you
    But we couldn’t see around the bend
    All the problems hidden from view

    You know I never want to hurt you
    But all things come to an end
    A clean break will be better in the long run
    Broken hearts can’t pretend

    The sands of time are nearly through
    Not much more to say or do
    I bit off more than I could chew
    I’m leaving here
    Goodbye… Russian Blue

    The sands of time are nearly through

    LITTLE BLACK BOOK
    (Riff Regan/Steve Voice)

    Feeling down, feeling hurt
    Went looking for my little black book
    Found your name, made a call
    From a number in my little black…

    Little black book has a special name
    I left it there in case you felt the same
    Black book all battered and worn
    My little black book

    Got through, recognised the voice
    Of a friend in my little black book
    Met up, didn’t work out
    Next page in my little black…

    Little black book has a special name
    I left it there in case you felt the same

    I'LL NEVER WALK AWAY
    (Riff Regan/John Van der Kiste/Steve Voice)

    Sometimes it’s only darkness and you feel alone
    When you’ve lost your direction and you’re far from home
    Sometimes it wears you down like an endless chase
    Every door gets slammed in your face
    You’re feeling helpless with nowhere to go
    Just call my name, I’ll be there you know

    I’ll never walk away, I’ll never let you down
    No matter what they say, I’ll be around
    I’ll never walk away, I’ll be there for you
    When your sky turns grey, I’ll pull us through

    Sometimes you fall apart, it’s easily done
    When you’re out on the highway and there’s nowhere to run
    It’s a dead-end junction wherever you look
    It’s not the end of the chapter but the end of the book
    When every day is a losing game
    I’ll be there when you call my name

    I’ll never walk away, I’ll never let you down
    No matter what they say, I’ll be around
    I’ll never walk away, I’ll be there for you
    When your sky turns grey, I’ll pull us through etc

  • London. Animal Games full album

    44:16

    London were a four piece formed in London in 1976. The original line-up was Riff Regan (vocals), Steve Voice (bass/vocals), Jon Moss (drums) and Dave Wight (guitar).
    They were managed by Simon Napier-Bell and recorded two singles, a 4 track EP and an album for MCA Records in 1977. Most of their songs were written by Riff Regan (including the first two singles 'Everyone's a Winner' and 'Summer of Love') or by Riff Regan and Steve Voice. All their records were produced by Napier-Bell at the IBC Studios in London. They toured extensively throughout 1977, first supporting The Stranglers and then as headliners in their own right. Their third release, the single 'Animal Games', was featured on the notorious Sex Pistols edition of the British TV show So It Goes. Their final gig was at the Marquee Club in Wardour Street on the 8th December 1977. The band broke up shortly afterwards. On leaving, Moss joined The Damned and then formed Culture Club with Boy George.

  • 10 Synth Riffs That Shook the World

    6:36

    Support this channel on Patreon:


    These riffs all whipped me into shape as a keyboard player, and composer in the mid 80s, all in a different way.
    Thriller by the build-up into the main hook, The Final Countdown by it's majestic synth brass sound and also build up. Take on Me by it's catchy almost arpeggio-like way of playing, along with the staccato DX synth bass, Save a Prayer by utilizing the pitch bend wheel in a new way as well as the different keys the chords take throughout the song. Axel F for simplicity yet intoxicating main hook and bass, New Song for the way Mr. HJ so effortlessy managed several synths at the same time, yet playing that catchy riff. Light my Fire by sheer awesomeness in the outragious use of different keys and chords in that short amount of time the solo lasts. Deep Red by its use of different time signatures and the way is so hypnotizing together with the visuals of the movie. Lastly Toccata and Fugue in Dm, pure madness and every note just adds to the madness. I've taken insoiration from this piece for years and many of my songs have snippets of that in it, in different ways.

    The synthesizer used in all the clips are a Korg DW-8000 from 1985. This video actually started out as a demo of this synth, hence me using it for everything. The sounds used are from my own custom patch bank for this synth. I sell this bank. A separate demo of this is on this channel.

    Miss Mid-West Farmer's Daughter recorded in 1981 at IBC studios, London with Riff Regan (vocals), Andy Miller (acoustic guitar & backing vocals), Don Powell (drum loop), Ben Mandelson (violin), Dave Fishel (organ), Mark Sedgwick (bass). Produced by Andy Miller.

    MISS MID-WEST FARMER'S DAUGHTER
    (Riff Regan, Andy Miller)

    Babe I’m no cowboy
    I’m from London town
    I was just passing through
    Not hanging around

    I never thought that it would get off the ground
    Just a one nighter to tell the old crowd

    Babe I must admit
    That you have me foxed
    Each time you smile
    I get kinda lost

    I never thought that it would get off the ground
    Just a one nighter to tell the old crowd

    I gotta get out of here
    On a horse or a train
    Steal a car or hide on a plane
    Miss mid-west farmer’s daughter
    I oughta be on my way

    Lover, you’ve got to see my side of the fence
    I’d love to stay here but it makes much more sense
    If I get dressed and get myself in that sun
    Before your daddy chases me with his gun

    I gotta get out of here
    On a horse or a train
    Steal a car or hide on a plane
    Miss mid-west farmer’s daughter
    I oughta be on my way

    I never thought that it would get off the ground
    Just a one nighter to tell the old crowd

    I gotta get out of here
    On a horse or a train
    Steal a car or hide on a plane
    Miss mid-west farmer’s daughter
    I oughta be on my way
