Dirk Radloff If you like Rockabilly with a touch of Punk and Country you should not hesitate to give this a try. Kathy has not just an amazing life, but also a voice like an chameleon and excellent guitar-skills. Especially when she kicks on the gas-pedal in pogo-compatible tempos it's jaw-dropping. Favorite track: My Amazing LIfe.

The devil doesn’t always show his horns, He hides them pretty well Didn’t feel I’d struck a deal that started out in hell His cloven hooves reside inside quite ordinary shoes NOW I'M CAUGHT BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE BLUES His clientele adore him, they fail to understand That he’s a touchy-feely, crawly-creepy sleazeball of a man He covers his misogyny with bonhomie and booze NOW I'M CAUGHT BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE BLUES I should have told the world that this is where the story ends But I took that filthy money, I was civil to his friends I gotta pay my bills, so it was lose, lose, lose NOW I'M CAUGHT BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE BLUES The devil doesn’t always show his horns, He hides them pretty well I didn’t feel I’d struck a deal that started out in hell I gotta pay my bills, so it was lose, lose, lose NOW I'M CAUGHT BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE BLUES

You think I’m riding high on some kind of gravy train But you’d run a country mile if you could see inside my brain I got this two-headed monster and it’s tearing me apart As I lie here in the dark One head got the fantasy, the other got the facts And they’re laying down an album with a thousand tiny tracks Every track it’s got a story, every story got a sting And I can’t do a goddamn thing I GOT THE SHAKES - I GOT THE CHILLS PAID MY DUES BUT I JUST CAN'T PAY MY BILLS I paint a pretty picture and I tell some pretty tales But you wouldn’t wanna be there when I’m coming off the rails You see this amazing life I lead But you don’t see me bleed I GOT THE SHAKES ... You think I’m riding high on some kind of gravy train But you’d run a country mile if you could see inside my brain I never even was who you think I’m supposed to be So call your dogs off me I GOT THE SHAKES .....

Won’t you forgive me if I’m sounding like I’ve had too much to drink? But I just gotta say what’s on my mind before I stop to think It’s getting clearer by the minute we’re a whole lot more than friends I wanna lay it on the line before the evening ends cause I CAN'T SET NO LIMITS, I CAN'T KEEP NO SCORE I'LL JUST GIVE YOU EVERYTHING - EVERYTHING AND MORE I’ve been burned just one too many times for dancing in the flame And I was shutting out the world so I could shut out the pain But when you talk about sweet nothing ‘cross the table here tonight I don’t stand a chance in hell of putting up a fight cause I CAN'T SET NO LIMITS, I CAN'T KEEP NO SCORE I'LL JUST GIVE YOU EVERYTHING - EVERYTHING AND MORE I wouldn’t wanna lie to you so I’ll tell you from the start That I got trouble running through my veins and cracks around my heart And I’ve done so many stupid things it’s hard to sleep at night But I still believe in miracles, and I’ve just seen the light I CAN'T SET NO LIMITS, I CAN'T KEEP NO SCORE I'LL JUST GIVE YOU EVERYTHING - EVERYTHING AND MORE

Already Dead 03:23
You said we’re gonna make it and You said it’ll be okay You said that I was your baby Then you blew it away You said that I was crazy You said my friends are scum You said, you said ,you said, you said too much And now we’re done. Cant you see I’m not listening? - pull the trigger, go ahead YOU CAN'T KILL OUR LOVE, IT'S ALREADY DEAD We could have had that golden future But that’s never gonna be You took the sunshine out of everything This is the end for you and me I’m not listening - pull the trigger, go ahead YOU CAN'T KILL OUR LOVE, IT'S ALREADY DEAD You said we’re gonna make it and You said it’ll be OK You lied, you lied, you lied, you lied and now There’s hell to pay YOU CAN'T KILL OUR LOVE, IT'S ALREADY DEAD

I swore that I’d go back one day I truly thought I would But nowadays I just don’t feel so sure Disillusioned, disenfranchised Where did I go wrong? ENGLAND DOESN'T LOVE ME ANY MORE NOT ANY MORE...THEY SHUT THE DOOR ENGLAND DOESN'T LOVE ME ANY MORE They’re tearing down the places That I used to hold so dear My childhood dreams are gone forever more I paid my taxes, paid my rent I thought I knew what England meant but ENGLAND DOESN'T LOVE ME ANY MORE.... Knowing that it’s over hurts me more than I can say It’s time I threw that tattered flag away Wars were fought and blood was shed Today we still salute the dead But what exactly were they fighting for? The values that I understood Are well and truly gone for good ENGLAND DOESN'T LOVE ME ANY MORE...

There’s something here that I can’t ignore Something in the room that wasn’t there before Idle conversation never felt this good There’s a current running deeper than it really should And it feels so fine, But it couldn’t get any worse WRONG TIME - WRONG PLACE - WRONG UNIVERSE I’ve seen trouble,I’ve seen pain And I know full well you’ve done the same I got no time for love’s young dream Wanna throw the match on the kerosene And it feels so fine,but it couldn’t get any worse WRONG TIME - WRONG PLACE - WRONG UNIVERSE In a parallel life we could do no wrong, We could do anything, all night long It’s another dream in another ditch Ah Destiny, you’re such a bitch And it feels so fine,but it couldn’t get any worse WRONG TIME - WRONG PLACE - WRONG UNIVERSE

Lucky Star 02:55
The hand of fate that wrote my song I know it got the story wrong But my lucky star’s still gonna shine I’m giving it one last shot, one last time One last time, one last time This dirty river will turn to wine I'm gonna follow these dreams of mine I'm giving it one last shot, one last time Too many journeys I took in vain I can’t have this life again But it’s not over and I feel fine I’m giving it one last shot, one last time One last time, one last time.......

I was doing alright, feeling fine Doing my thing, taking my time In came the Devil with his bag of tricks Now there’s a pain in my heart that nothing can fix HELP ME GOD, I LET THE DEVIL IN What’s yours is yours, what’s mine is mine I didn’t think about that when I crossed the line In came the devil, he was dressed in black Now he’s written his name right across my back HELP ME GOD, I LET THE DEVIL HELP ME GOD, I LET THE DEVIL IN You was temptation Yeah you was temptation You was temptation From head to tail Been doing this thing so many years All I ever get is blood and tears But if the devil came to my door I’d still come crawling back for more HELP ME GOD....

I didn’t see, and I didn’t know Cause you didn’t let your colours show I got wise, I was out that door I’ll be blue forever more SAYONARA, ADIOS AND AU REVOIR ARRIVEDERCI AND GOODNIGHT MY FRIEND, BONSOIR THERE'S A THOUSAND WAYS FOR US TO SAY GOODBYE THERE AIN'T ONE TO TAKE THESE TEARDROPS FROM MY EYE If it isn’t yours, then you shouldn’t touch But you went too far, and you took too much You burned me out like a hungry flame Life goes on, but it’s not the same SAYONARA, ADIOS AND AU REVOIR In the summer breeze, in the cold night air The wrong you did is always there The years roll by, and it lingers on You broke my heart, I sing my song SAYONARA, ADIOS AND AU REVOIR
