about

Bacchus Baracus Glasgow, UK

After writing a few songs locked away in a cottage in Highland Perthshire. Gaz decided to undertake a recording project in the Bottling Plant studio with a bunch of mates.
After a few Jams the guys thought they had some good tunes to offer up, and it was decided to make it a full time band out of the project.
With Mr MacDuff at the helm, 4 songs were recorded for the first E.P.

Track Name: Rock n' Roll Man
ROCK N ROLL MAN
Verse 1

Years ago a wise man said to me,
“Young boy a rock n roll man you’ll be”
Travel far and wide from town to town,
When you feel down the blues will be your sound,
You’ll meet a brother, who feels the same way,
And together they’ll be hell to pay,
Beer, joints and whisky,
I don’t know how the hell ill play...

Chorus

Time after time
Keep the gear rolling
Transits and truck stops...Oh Lord!
Drive all night
Sleep through the morning
Hangovers and headaches...Oh God!
Load the gear
Crank up the volume till I become...

A rock n roll
A real rock n roll man
At home on the open road (x2)

Verse 2

Years ago a wise man said to me,
“Young boy a rock n roll man you’ll be”
Travel far and wide from town to town,
When you feel down the blues will be your sound,
You’ll meet a brother, who feels the same way,
And together they’ll be hell to pay,
Beer, joints and whisky,
I don’t know how the hell ill play...

Chorus

Time after time
Keep the gear rolling
Transits and truck stops...Oh Lord!
Drive all night
Sleep through the morning
Hangovers and headaches...Oh God!
Load the gear
Crank up the volume till I become...

A rock n roll

Guitar solo

Chorus

Time after time
Keep the gear rolling
Transits and truck stops...Oh Lord!
Drive all night
Sleep through the morning
Hangovers and headaches...Oh God!
Load the gear
Crank up the volume till I become...

Breakdown

A rock n roll
A real rock n roll man
At home on the open road (x2)
Another city goes by...Another neon maze in my eyes.
Ahow, how, how
Ooooh

Double Chorus


Time after time
Keep the gear rolling
Transits and truck stops...Oh Lord!
Drive all night
Sleep through the morning
Hangovers and headaches...Oh God!
The gears held together with duct tape
Missed another sound check...Oh Lord!
Sleep in the van
Sore backs & strained limbs
Another god dammed headache...Oh God!
Time to play
Crank up the volume
Till I become....A rock n roll man

Dr Chu

Verse 1

The Doctors in so sit down,
Tell him what is making you frown,
Give you something to make you feel fine
Twist your mind, real good times.
Worry about stuff later,
Get on your Aviators,
Turn the sounds up,
Prescription kicks in come ma friend lets begin.

Chorus

Come on! Come in!
It’s good to see you again,
Aint seen you around in a while
Dr Chu

Verse 2

Roll another brother,
Then well drink another,
Wine and Whisky till the sun says hi.
I think am seeing double,
Gravity gives me trouble,
Dr Chu’s always up for a riot,
Yes he is, yes he is.

Chorus

Come on! Come in!
It’s good to see you again,
Aint seen you around in a while
Dr Chu

Guitar solo

Chorus

Come on! Come in!
It’s good to see you again,
Aint seen you around in a while

Track Name: Green Blues
Green Blues

Verse 1

The sky is green blue again.
Look at the time.
The sun will soon arise,
Apollo drags it 'cross the sky.
And as it sets at night ,
Sit and smile when it turns green/blue again

Take the couch and sit outside,
Heavy sonic dynamite.
Burning tv burns so bright,
Tripping vision looks so nice.

Chorus

Oh yeah I feel it.
It's the time of the night,
When I get green/blues again. (X2)

It's warm outside,
I've got my fire,
Recharge my mind,
I'm feeling fine, yeah!

Open a beer my friend,
We'll sit here pondering,
On this and that again.

Pour me a drink my friend,
Won't see me arguing,
Talking for hours again.

Verse 2

Clean air, no sign of rain.
Time slows for a while.
The fire's liquid flames,
Sending colours into the sky.

And as it starts to die,
Sit and smile coz I feel green/blue again.
Fire water burns inside,
Satellites buzz across the sky.
Hey friend where have you been,
Come on over, step right in!

Chorus

Oh yeah I feel it.
It's the time of the night,
When I get green/blues again. (X2)

It's warm outside,
I've got my fire,
Recharge my mind,
I'm feeling fine, yeah!

Pour me a drink my friend,
Won't see me arguing,
Talking for hours again.

Verse 3


The sky is green blue again.
Look at the time.
The sun will soon arise,
Apollo drags it 'cross the sky.
And as it sets at night ,
Sit and smile when it turns green/blue again

Take the couch and sit outside,
Heavy sonic dynamite.
Burning tv burns so bright,
Tripping vision looks so nice.

Verse 4

Clean air, no sign of rain.
Time slows for a while.
The fire's liquid flames,
Sending colours into the sky.

And as it starts to die,
Sit and smile coz I feel green/blue again.

Take the couch and sit outside,
Heavy sonic dynamite.
Burning tv burns so bright,
Tripping vision looks so nice.
Track Name: The Longest Day
The Longest Day

Verse 1

Waking on the brightest of days,
Thinking of ways to keep my deamons at bay,
Life long friends that i never fear,
Telling me things I don't want to hear,

Middle 8

Verse 1.2

Sitting at the end of the bar,
With my head in a whisky jar,
Dark, dark thoughts within my own head,
Sometimes wish I that was dead,

Bridge

Get through this longest day,
Bright sun seems so gray,
Just me and me my friend,
Will this day ever end,

Chorus

How many hours does this day feel,
Dragging on forever it don'e feel real,
24 hours more like 54 days,
No help coming how can i be saved,
x2

Verse 2

Going home for the preview tonight,
Drink myself till i feel alright,
Wishing that i can find something new,
Till that day I don't wanna see you,

Middle 8

Verse 2.2

Tripping on my life style blues,
Wondering why I never payed my dues,
All i paid was the tab at the bar,
And that aint gonna get me too far,

Bridge

Get through this longest day,
Bright sun seems so gray,
Just me and me my friend,
Will this day ever end,

Chorus

How many hours does this day feel,
Dragging on forever it don'e feel real,
24 hours more like 54 days,
No help coming how can i be saved,
x2
