about

Whilst relentlessly peddling their peculiar brand of rocked up dirt-swing Louis Barabbas & The Bedlam Six have captured the imaginations of every species of listenership, both for their furious onstage energy and Louis’ manic lyrical gymnastics. They are also the house band for Manchester independent label Debt Records.

lyrics

Gee but it's great to be back home
Home is where I want to be.
I've been on the road so long my friend,
And if you came along I know you couldn't disagree.

It's the same old story everywhere I go,
I get slandered, libeled,
I hear words I never heard in the Bible
And I'm one step ahead of the shoe shine
Two steps away from the county line
Just trying to keep my customers satisfied,
Satisfied.

Deputy Sheriff said to me
Tell me what you come here for, boy.
You better get your bags and flee.
You're in trouble boy, and now you're heading into more.

It's the same old story everywhere I go,
I get slandered, libeled,
I hear words I never heard in the Bible
And I'm one step ahead of the shoe shine
Two steps away from the county line
Just trying to keep my customers satisfied,
Satisfied.

We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
