Andrea Manges And The Veterans - Martians, Go Home

 

  Andrea Caredda will more than likely be familiar to any avid pop punk fans reading this as frontman of long running and highly rated Italian band The Manges (https://themanges.bandcamp.com/). He's also spent the last dozen or so years fronting The Veterans (now rebranded Andrea Manges And The Veterans). The band play old school Euro pop punk mixed up with a dash of surf rock and he's aided by numerous talented musicians from bands such as The Manges, The Ponches, Teenage Bubblegums, Popsters, Tough etc... They debuted with 2008's S/T album, have popped up every once in a while with a new single and are now back with a new S/T album on Striped Music : http://www.stripedmusic.com/cd-andrea-manges-and-the-veterans/

  If you're into catchy tunes you can't really go wrong with the new album. The production is great, the songs are earworms and the backing vocals by Ally Bubblegum are a delight. The song you'll find below is one they've been playing live since their first show and as I'm a sucker for sci-fi themed pop punk songs it was always going to be the song I posted on here. It's called Martians, Go Home...

You don’t know, but you’ve been here once before
red lights were flashing, I've never felt so insecure
Don’t you know what I have seen, think about it
Can’t forget what I have done, I dream about it
And now the district's on a roll
Since you left I took control
It’s time to face what I’ve been hiding for so long

You gotta go home
Gotta go home
Gotta go home
Martians, go home
If you want to stay alive
You gotta go home
Gotta go home
Gotta go home
Martians, go home
There’ll be no mistakes this time

Well, I was an officer, my name is on the blue book
Prescriptions for these drugs, you’re free to take a look.
Don’t you know what I have seen, think about it
Can’t forget what I have done, I dream about it
And now the district's on a roll
Since you left I took control
It’s time to face what I’ve been hiding for so long

You gotta go home
Gotta go home
Gotta go home
Martians, go home
If you want to stay alive
You Gotta go home
Gotta go home
Gotta go home
Martians, go home
There’ll be no mistakes this time

I won’t miss you martians, so long
I won’t miss you martians, so long
