Sweet Revenge The sweetest dreams you’ll ever have are the ones you’ll never keep There’s always someone out who’ll rob you while you sleep But the tide is turning – it’s turning fast My time has come at last I’ll get my sweet revenge Here comes my sweet revenge Yeah sweet revenge I was abandoned, I was left for dead Almost destroyed by the things you said Seemed like the whole world was dancing on my grave But now that’s gonna change I’ll get my sweet revenge Here comes my sweet revenge Yeah sweet revenge Time can cure you and time can kill If I don’t get you , then nature will Cause you can turn away, you can hide and you can run But one day you’ll regret the things you’ve done I’ll get my sweet revenge Here comes my sweet revenge Yeah sweet revenge Copyright Kathy Freeman 1991

Five Hundred People Sweat is dripping down my back And pouring from the walls Must be something that I lack I never felt this small….this small Five hundred people here tonight They’ve all got something to do Five hundred people here tonight but None of them is you There were some posters but I don’t know what I read Some conversations God knows what I said….what I said Five hundred people here tonight They’ve all got something to do Five hundred people here tonight None of them is you None of them is you … None of them is you… None of them is you …No! I couldn’t say what happened ‘cause I wasn’t really there I was somewhere on the road the goes From boredom to despair…..I wasn’t there There’s five hundred people here tonight They’ve all got something to do Five hundred people here tonight None of them is you Copyright Kathy Freeman 1989

Disillusioned Waiting for a miracle but nothing ever changed All I got was disappointment, I always got the blame Now it’s over there’s nothing left to see Nothing’s gonna give me back the years you took from me I’m disillusioned …I’m disillusioned ….I’m disillusioned So much was spoken and so little really said I was easily broken, I was easily led I lost my self respect, I lost my vision too I lost all the best things I ever had Trying to prove I could be like you I’m disillusioned …I’m disillusioned ….I’m disillusioned Looking for salvation – it was always out of reach Cause I could never see beyond the lessons that you preach And now I understand, it cuts me like a knife I just discovered that you damaged me for life I’m disillusioned …I’m disillusioned ….So disillusioned Copyright Kathy Freeman 1992

Make My Day 02:32
Make My Day You took advantage ….took what you could Violent deeds in a violent world I guess that’s understood When will you realise I’ve had it up to here My head is spinning but my conscience is clear Gonna blow you clean away Gonna blow you clean away One time too many and it’s one time too much This time I’m ready – You’d better not touch Gonna make this world a safer place, a better place to be Make this world a better place for you and me Gonna blow you clean away Gonna blow you clean away Five seconds of glory and I’ve had my fill It’s a human interest story, you can call it what you will Nowhere left to run to, I got nowhere left to turn What have I got to lose if I just stand and watch you burn Gonna blow you clean away Gonna blow you clean away Copyright Kathy Freeman May 1992

Don't Go 02:58
Don’t Go Time moves slowly but time moves on This time tomorrow I know you’ll be gone I feel the life draining out of my veins I see the good things going up in flames Don’t go! Don’t wanna see you walk away from me That’s not the way that I want it to be My eyes are burning – I cry and I curse The more I want you, the more it hurts Don’t go! Don’t wanna know what tomorrow will bring Don’t wanna know about anything Don’t wanna know what the good book says I just joined the ranks of the living dead Don’t go! Copyright Kathy Freeman/ Claudia Preda 1991

All I Want 02:37
All I Want Welcome to the hall of mirrors Welcome to the fun of the fair This is where I wasted half my life Chasin' something that wasn’t there Welcome to the party It’s the one that never ends Ah come on get me out of here I wanna be your friend You’re all I want You’re all I want You’re all I want And I want it all Been trapped inside this web of lies From here to kingdom come Breaks my heart to think about The damage that’s been done But you’re the best thing I’ve ever seen Since God knows when Wanna know just what it’s like To feel good again You’re all I want You’re all I want You’re all I want And I want it all Anyone can try to use you Anyone can promise the earth Anyone can tell you all kind of things You don’t know what that’s worth But you gotta believe me I ain’t lyin’ when I say I might as well go straight to hell If I ever throw your love away You’re all I want You’re all I want You’re all I want And I want it all Copyright Kathy Freeman 1989

I lost it 01:49
I Lost It I had a moment of madness I must have lost control It all came out and I could not stop Now I’ve dug myself a hole I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’ve done it again I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’ll take the blame I can’t go back and I can’t revoke A single thing I said I could eat my words until I choke I wish that I was dead I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’ve done it again I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’ll take the blame I want to make amends Don’t wanna fight again But it’s too late now I lost it anyhow Another pointless journey round the dark side of the brain Around and around and around and around and around we go again I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’ve done it again I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’ll take the blame Copyright Kathy Freeman 1994

Tosser 03:00
Tosser He’s had a few pints, he starts to dribble and drool He’s everyone’s mate, he’s nobody’s fool He’s got some dosh, he’s down with the lads They’re just having a laugh, is that really so bad? Crawling all around like a fly on a table He wants to get laid but he just isn’t able to even make a start, but he just doesn’t get it It’s not gonna happen if you don’t wanna let it He’s a dog with a bone, he’s a man with a mission He’s gotta wind up in a dominant posititon He can’t work out why you don’t respond He’s out of his depth – he doesn’t belong Don’t touch me, Don’t touch me, Don’t touch me, No No No! Don’t touch me, Don’t touch me, Don’t touch me, , No No No! “What’s the matter with you you little stuck-up bitch? Where we come from they don’t act like this!” But where he comes from, he’s still a jerk Two kids and a marriage that’ll never work Don’t touch me, Don’t touch me, Don’t touch me, No No No! Don’t touch me, Don’t touch me, Don’t touch me, No No No! Kathy Freeman 1994

Out Of It 04:51
Out of it Don’t wanna lick my wounds again for you or anyone Don’t wanna wreck my happy home I won’t investigate the empty space behind your pretty face I’m gonna walk this world alone Get out of my world, get out of my way, get out of my head Get out of it, get out of it , get out of it, get out of it Get out of my face, get out of my dreams, get out of my bed Get out of it, get out of it, get out of it, get out of it Why should I play these lousy stinking social games with you? I don’t accept the values you embrace I don’t accept a thousand fucking reasons that you care to give Why you don’t have the guts to say it to my face Get out of my world, get out of my way, get out of my head Get out of it, get out of it, get out of it, get out of it Get out of my face, get out of my dreams, get out of my bed Get out of it, get out of it, get out of it, get out of it For the last time I wish you luck, I wish you well – I know we’re gonna meet in Hell You can show me just how much you care You can come and help me dig a shallow grave For all the feelings that we share The more you want, the more it’s always gonna hurt Each time it goes inside, it never goes away I’m gonna build a wall so high, you’ll never get over it It won’t be me that has to pay – this time Get out of my world, get out of my way, get out of my head Get out of it, get out of it, get out of it, get out of it Get out of my face, get out of my dreams, get out of my bed Get out of it, get out of it, get out of it, get out of it Get out of my world, get out of my way, get out of my head Get out of it, get out of it, get out of it, get out of it Get out of my face, get out of my dreams, get out of my bed Get out of it, get out of it, get out of it, get out of it Get out of it, get out of it, get out of it, get out of it Get out of it, get out of it, get out of it, get out of it

about

The band folded a long time ago but the songs refused to lay down and die! Here’s a second chance to discover one of the most underrated bands in rock history…..

The ill-fated Joyryde played gritty, high velocity punk metal in the early 90’s in London, at a time when everyone else was listening to soft-focus Indie music or DJs. Formed in 91 by core members Kathy Freeman and Claudia Preda, Joyryde was snapped up by Carlton Sandercock's Kill City label in ’93 and released four-track CD / vinyl single “Not a Hope in Hell” This was quickly followed by a second four-track CD/ 12 inch vinyl E.P. “Rumorosa”. But following the demise of Kill City the band never achieved the recognition they deserved. Maybe the music business wasn’t yet ready for those killer three minute anthems from a band fronted by two strong women and backed by the most able “disabled” drummer in the world Mat Fraser (now a successful actor, TV personality and cabaret performer)
The band continued to gig and record sporadically until 1998 when Freeman reluctantly called it a day.

Despite - or possibly because of - an endless background of damp, overpriced rehearsal rooms, disrespect from industry and promoters, poorly paid shows in dismal London taverns, and continual line-up changes, the songs on this compilation are bursting with a passion, anger and energy which transcends the limitations of the London 90’s scene; and have arguably stood the test of time better than those of their shoe-gazing contemporaries.
