about

A tonal journey from Revolver to the Raconteurs. Self deprecating, bittersweet love-songs-in-reverse set to thundering drums, biting guitar hooks and the ghost of John Entwistle, hovering over the bass frets, all laying the groundwork for Darryl Todd’s warm, emotion-drenched vocal melodies.

Exuberant, cathartic, vibrant and soulful, MMO grab your ears and go for your heart.... and Emily loves them.

about

Mechanical Mouse Organ Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK

Mechanical Mouse Organ's lineage stretches back to 90's indie hopefuls, Hug, whose brief career won them plaudits from the NME and Mark Radcliffe. A reunion in 2011 paved the way for a new band, featuring Darryl Todd on vocals, and a harder edged direction mixing alt and classic rock sounds, pushed through the tonal blender with a large dose of melody and a healthy injection of raw power. ... more

Track Name: Ill Judged Text
You know you
Always want what you can't afford
Use it up
And you get bored
Used to say
There should be a law against

You know I
Still regret what I pushed aside
Still deny
That it took pride
Now I find
I'm the wrong side of the fence

Cold black coffee and some ill- judged text
Full of shattered hopes and bitter regrets
Petty indiscretions I can't quite forget
I want to move on I'm just not there yet

You know you
You still got what you don't deserve
Squander love
And you feel hurt
Gave it up and
You've got the nerve to ask

You know I
I just hate what I can't control
Let it go and it
Got cold
Hate to hear what I
Can't be told I guess

Cold black coffee and some ill- judged text
Full of shattered hopes and bitter regrets
Petty indiscretions I can't quite forget
I want to move on I'm just not there yet
Track Name: Workaholic
I've got a mate
Who works for the state
Pay isn't great
But he cuts the coupons
From the magazines
What do you know now
What do you know?

His brother Joe
Goes with the flow
He's in the know
And we're counting on him
Anything we need
What do you know now
What do you know?

See Mary-Jane
She's playing games
No sense of shame
But you've got to love it
Her sister Jacq
Works on her back
She can't relax
She's a workaholic

I've got a hunch
You're out to lunch
Down in the dumps
Like your dreams are children
Grown and gone to seed
Where do you go now?
Where do you go?

You ought to know
That you're still a rose
How do you cope
When the days are speeding
By your window screen
Where do you go now?
Where do you go?

No changing tack
No turning back
Cut me some slack
I'm a glum romantic
His sister Jacq
Works on her back
She can't relax
She's a workaholic
Track Name: It's Just Love (Get Over It)
Self-esteem
Is a fragile thing
And you put a dent
In my self-respect
With that valentine
You returned to mine
And wrote don't call again
This has to end

It's just love, get over it...

This shabby song
Comes out all wrong
And the words I wrote
Stick in my throat
And I wonder why
It is that I
Just can't talk to you
It's all confused

Just love get over it...

It could work
It all depends
'Cause you're OK
But I don't like your friends
And I'm a jerk
But you're a friend
So I don't want
To end up here again

And so I see
You soon got over me
Now you're hanging out
With your new crowd
Must I confess
I'm still a mess
You took a chunk of me
I can't retrieve

Just love get over it...
Track Name: Call Me Up
Come take me out
Around the places
Where the ragged people go
Come fill my house
With jokes and laughter
Teach me things I ought to know
Way out of reach
We touched the heavens
Knew the sun and felt the rain
We burned like fire
A Roman Candle
Only molten wax remains

Just call me up
And heaven help me
I will stand out in the rain
Just call me up
I'll go through it all again

Saturday sounds
To serenade me
I'll let the radio dictate
And pound for pound
I'm punching over
Never quite knew my own weight
Way out on First
A man cajoles me
Where is his hat, there is his home
He asked me where
Do I belong and
I confessed I didn't know

Just call me up
And heaven help me
I will stand out in the rain
Just call me up
And tell me truly
Was it worth all of the pain
Just call me up
And ask sincerely
Could it ever be the same
Just call me up
I will do it all again
Track Name: Honour System
You are my honour system
You are my winter sun
You are my female intuition
You are my aqualung

You are completely implicated
Committed and engaged
Aided and abetted
My saving grace

I come with limitations
I come with nagging doubts
I am a no-win situation
One you could do without

I am completely underrated
Mistaken and confused
Defiant and elated
An attitude

You are my polar star
My corresponding hemisphere
You don't what you are
But you light up this time of year

You are my honour system
You are my winter sun
You are my female intuition
You are my aqualung

You are completely implicated
Committed and engaged
Aided and abetted
My saving grace
Track Name: Torn Up Love Song
The first time I met you
I think I just stared at my shoes
And uttered something crude
Thinking it was cool and funny

And by the swimming pool
I'd wait to walk you home from school
But I was never cool
You were always way beyond me

It was maybe my bad call
To carve our names into a wall
We were never there at all
Never even nicked you flowers

It all came to an end
The night you went with my best friend
There's nothing to defend
I guess I never seized the hour

A torn up love song
A torn up love song
Tear up love songs
Is all I do
A torn up love song
A torn up love song
My torn up love song
To you

Let's not go through it now
I don't know why I slept around
Perhaps I knew deep down
That I could never keep you

And should you have the grace
To accept the things I cannot change
I'd not do that again
I never could deceive you

I crave the words you send
Maybe I just need a friend
We both know in the end
There was nothing more between us

And if you'd gone with me
Would you still cry yourself to sleep?
Well heaven knows maybe
You dare to dream it could have been us

A torn up love song
A torn up love song
Tear up love songs
Is all I do
A torn up love song
A torn up love song
Tear up love songs
Is all I do
A torn up love song
A torn up love song
My torn up love song
To you
Track Name: I Know I'm Not The One
If I could make you see
How beautiful you are to me
But I know I'm not the one
You want to hear it from

I'd take away your hurt
And show you how much more you're worth
But what would be the point
If it's not me you want

What is it with that clown?
He stifles you and puts you down
I don't care how it appears
He's just not worth your tears

I'd give you so much love
But that doesn't really mean that much
If I'll never be the one
You break your heart on

Take my love, take my desire
Burn it on the funeral pyre
You have my heart, you already did
If even if you don't want it
Forget my face, forget my name
But please don't throw your love away
Take my love, I have no need
I know, I know you don't want me

If I could make you see
How beautiful you are to me
But I know I'm not the one
You need to hear it from

I'd take away your hurt
And show you how much more you're worth
But there isn't any point
If it's not me you want

I'd fill you full of love
But that doesn't really mean that much
If I'll never be the feller
You break your heart over

Take my love, take my desire
Burn it in the funeral pyre
You have my heart, you always did
Even if you don't want it
Forget my face, forget my name
But please don't throw your love away
Take my love, I have no need
I know, I know you don't want me

Take my love, I have no need
I know, I know you don't want me
Take my love, I have no need
I know, I know you don't want me
Track Name: Our Dave's Song
Just wasting time
‘Cause time is mine
I feel so wrong
The time is gone
And time is tight
Slipping right by
But through your eyes
Back up your drives
Reserve the worst
The rest is cursed

Why don’t you waste your time with me
We’ll be the best that we can be
Avoiding all reality
Why don’t you waste your time

Just take your time
It’ll all be fine
We’ll tow the one
Leave life behind
Get worse and worse
Embrace the curse
You’re not the first
To be the worst
It feels rehearsed
Keep your lips pursed

Why don’t you waste your time with me
We’ll be the best that we can
Avoiding all reality
Why don’t you waste your time
Track Name: The Life Of Me
I'm turning up the sound
I'm driving out of town
Along the viaduct
I sit and watch the trucks

Oh oh, the life of me

I'm drifting out of tune
I'm howling at the moon
I hear the ocean's roar
I'm knocking down your door

Oh oh the life of me

I've seen it turn to dust
I've watched the engines rust
I breached the firewall
I will destroy it all

Oh, oh the life of me

I'm drifting out of tune
I'm running out of room
I plucked the hyacinth
I drowned it in the sink

Oh, oh the life of me
