“I Felt Stupid” – The Drums

i felt so stupid
you were standing there.
you were combing your hair so unaware
i felt so silly
you couldn’t see me.
i know you love your family
i’m sure you love your family
but come stay with me, stay with me.

i don’t know if it’s right or wrong but come stay with me
i want to hear the beat of your heart.
if it’s good or bad come be with me
and i’ll give you the key to my heart

your arms around me
seemed to be the only good thing that ever happened to me
we can take a walk now down to the beach
the sun will be shining when we’re finally free


and how’ve i lived my life too selfishly baby? (x 6)

chorus (x 2)

and how’ve i lived my life too selfishly baby?

I saw Henry McCullough and his band earlier this year at “Backstage at The Green” in Kinross.

However rather than post one of his own recording I have chosen to post this great cover version of one of his most famous songs by Over The Rhine

New Music – The Drums


American indie-pop newcomers The Drums have explained what marks them apart from their peers.

The world of indie pop is often derided for being cooler than thou, defeatist and afraid of success. Yet a new breed of groups taking their inspiration from C86 are proving that the music can gain a wider audience.

With their new album due out over the summer, The Drums could crack the mainstream. Mixing Factory Records style post-punk with a very indie sense of naivety, the band are tipped for huge success.

Speaking to the NME, Jonathan Pierce claims that The Drums will succeed – due to their ambition. “We’re ambitious,” he declared. “The big difference between us and a lot of other indie pop bands is we’re not afraid of success.”

Explaining his position, the singer referred to some British indie pop greats. “I’ve always felt The Field Mice should be the biggest band in the world” he claimed. “I don’t want to hide them away for myself.”

“That’s the difference between us and them, that’s the different mentality… I can’t think of anything more unattractive than wanting to be indie for indie’s sake.”

The Field Mice split in 1991, but were cult heroes due to their prominent role on cult label Sarah. Inspiring a generation of anorak clad indie kids, their back catalogue is well worth tracking down.


The Drums released their debut EP ‘Summertime’ last year. A shimmering of indie pop it gained the band a cult audience.

One of this year’s most talked about newcomers, the band recently showcased their debut in London with a secret show.

The Drums are due to release their debut album on June 7th.
