FDJ Awesome blues rock from Poland.
Slightly accented powerful vocals , slammin' guitar solo's and riffs plus some majestic bass playing and a drummer who goes for jazzy finesse over bombastic bluster.

Track Name: Ride On
Ride on
With the wind blowing through your head
Live on
Yet the road is still not straight

Like I'm going for something
And it makes it hard for me to stand

Get on
Let the speed evaporate my soul
Keep on
Moving just to get some more

Like I'm going for something
And it makes it hard for me to stand

Still knocking on the doors
Somebody hid the key
If I can't push it no more
I'll enter through the windowsill

lyrics: Łukasz Malinowski
Track Name: The General's Daughter
Your fucking mirror is too close
Passing my bike you almost brake my nose
I hit the ground, dust hits the air
Nothing tastes better, nothing compares
I’m getting up, you’re getting out
You seem like there’s something to talk about
I get my knife. You know the score
You get your gun, I hit the floor tonight all right.

The only thing that I cared for.. The Generals Daughter

You think you won, better think twice
You guard your treasure, you’re in for a surprise
Remember when you cut me down
I have returned to steal the jewel from your crown
Your bullets pierced body of mine
My bullets pierced something we both hold divine.
You see my smile, you catch my drift
I’ve paid your girl a visit on my late night shift. hell yeah.

When I saw her smile I did not know the price to pay
Quirky eyes and touch that I still feel on my skin today
How could I ever know that her father will stand against my way
How could he even know that it’s already too late! Hey!

lyrics: Krzysiek Gońda
