my day begins a little late again and i'm running out of time in which to make it in an industry that isn't in to me but i ain't giving in so easily i've got a keyboard with a new beat on it a new album but i'm gonna sleep on it spend as long as it takes thinking deep on it 'cause i've got a name and i won't cheapen it my mum still tries to stop me saying music is fine as a hobby i need to get a job why not be a teacher like her but i'm the driver (driver), the designated driver i'll give you a lift if you give me a fiver it's called We Came Here Not For Gold whack it on and we'll go for a spin yo the Passman i'm back chatting crap all over the track relax man 'cause you're in safe hands if i drop the ball i pick it up where it lands i'm thinking about making plans but in the meantime i'm drinking mild out the can writing my name in the sand in ten foot tall letters breaking mic stands and trying on cable knit sweaters for tea you might find me grating cheddar cheese over baked beans on toast but come Sunday and i'm around my mum's for a roast i'll maybe wear a sweater but she'll be like 'where's your coat? if you don't wear a coat then you're gonna be cold' i'm like, 'mum, give me a break i'm twenty eight years old now bring me a nice slice of cake like i told you five minutes ago and where's the remote control? 'cause i wanna watch Flava yo'

dreckly 05:26
yeah we’re doin’ it like you never knew it could be done who else do you know that has this much fun banging drum pads like it’s 1991 and going out of fashion mashing Casio keys digital cymbals crashing when all’s done and dusted we’re gonna be bigger than Busted before they busted sweet like honey and hotter than mustard no I ain’t being funny ‘cause I’ve been to the year 3000 and people are still listening to Cosmic Sounds man i’d like to welcome you to our difficult 2nd album who knew we’d be back more hyped, more psyched mics at the ready (ready) Hedluv, Passman and Ed we hold it steady (steady) we’re holding it down for the Redruth crew milling around town on a Saturday afternoon like we’ve got nothing to do in truth we’ve got a bunch we just don’t be starting nothing ‘til after lunch yeah i don’t be getting up ‘til after lunch ‘cause i’m doin’ it i’m doin’ it dreckly doin’ it we’re doin’ it dreckly doin’ it we’re doin’ it dreckly (i spend longer in the bathroom than Elvis Presley) ‘cause i’m doin’ it i’m doin’ it dreckly we’re doin it we’re doin’ it dreckly (i lost my remote down the back of the settee didn’t find it for at week ‘cause i’m doin’ it) it’s the way down ‘ere way down ‘ere we don’t do much in a day down ‘ere i can’t get a job or get paid down ‘ere but there’s no where to spend it anyway down ‘ere that’s okay down ‘ere i walk through a lovely landscape down ‘ere that’s the pace down ‘ere it’s country lanes, no motor ways down ‘ere it takes as long as it takes down ‘ere so i’m doin’ it i’m doin it dreckly when I drink tea it’s usually Tetley i came from the 20th century travelling at the speed of time and I reckon that I might just make it in the nick of time if they wait a minute at the finish line and fall asleep they’ll get beat by me the tortoise but I’m doin’ it like the chorus dreckly i’m doin’ it dreckly dreckly I’m doin’ it dreckly dreckly we’re doin’ it dreckly when Ed’s on the mic he comes through correctly it’s the E to the D i’ve got it E to the Z my maid made my bed my mum made my tea i’ve got it made but 5 days a week i’ve gotta get up early to pay for my keep up a ladder with a paintbrush in a rush? matter-do-e have a late lunch i work for my father though he doesn’t pay much if I want a home of my own i’m gonna have to save up paper (paper) so he’s doin’ it he’s doin’ it dreckly i’m doin’ it i’m doin’ it dreckly we’re doin’ it we’re doin’ it dreckly dreckly are you doin’ it dreckly? D.R.E.C.K.L.Y. means ‘later on’ it’s one Cornish dialect that still remains strong which could be the reason why we take so long luckily Hedluv and Passman are worth waiting for we’re like miners mining you’ve gotta put the time in dig it out the grime and it come up shining ain’t no diamonds this town was built on tin ‘cause you gotta have something to put your baked beans in

smokin' 03:19
before you go to the pub make sure that you bring your gloves because with everyone standing outside smoking the likelihood they'll leave the door wide open is high and you'll be left wondering why you're sitting on your own when it's 'rolly time' man it's freezing in here and this atmosphere's lame but at least my hair will still smell good the next day whereas outside they'll be having that debate which Rizlas to use? is it greens is it blues? well, blues have got the glue if you're building one and passing it but as to whether Cutters Choice has got glass in it i don't know but i wouldn't have thought so it ain't the brand that i would have bought though i know it ain't exactly weather for shorts but once it is i'll be out here even more so nothing brings people together like smoking can and outside in the smoking gang they're always talking about the weather and the smoking ban can i borrow your lighter how's it going man? you know a bond as strong as a nicotine habit can help keep a friendship tight for as long as i can rabbit on and i can rabbit on and on until the crack of dawn or at least until my baccy's gone i started smoking got a nasty cough my parents wanted to know why i had to pass it off something going 'round college at the time which it was we called it dirt bar smoked it and it cost only five pounds a teenth divided by three and five times a day we'd wind up our dealer a trip to the Spar would be on the cards to pick up some pizza and chocolate bars because we were (we were) either (either) smoking rollies or smoking reefer and if it's gotta be neither then half of us probably wouldn't even be here nothing brings people together like smoking can and outside in the smoking gang they're always talking about the weather and the smoking ban can i borrow your lighter? how's it going man? nothing brings people together like smoking can and outside in the smoking gang they're always talking about the weather and the smoking ban can i borrow your lighter? how's it going man? i should know better but i'll have a smoke anyway even on the very day i say i'll give up smoking i'm hoping that i'll give it up one day maybe on monday but not right now, yeah i'll pinch the green bit from your Rizla packet roll one up thin like a prisoner and tap it down all the way down

flippers 03:28
i was looking forward to catching some waves but now i'm just caught up in the break water plus i've got this lifeguard guy on my case with his megaphone on and he's going on 'stay between the flags' but i'm flat on my face and, 'it takes more than flippers to be a good swimmer' i guess i should've put 'em on once i was in there but i'm gonna make mistakes 'cause i'm just a beginner it's getting embarassing i think i might pack it in but it gets easier when i start backing in i got a gold star once for doggy paddling when i was a youngster but it just doesn't cut the mustard when you're swimming in the sea that's why i'll only go out up to my knees nah i might go a little deeper than that but i'm happier if i can stand up i've got some ham 'n' cheese sandwiches my wallet, goggles and my keys in my rucksack somewhere safe where i can see from the sea this kind of cold can cause your nut sack to retreat you can't hang around when you're only kneedeep your friends will splash ya man they have ta it's the rules and your balls they'll be after so i would take a run up and dive in but you might trip up if you're wearing your flippers i was looking forward to catching some waves but now i'm just caught up in the break water plus i've got this lifeguard guy on my case with his megaphone on and he's going on 'stay between the flags' but i'm flat on my face and, 'it takes more than flippers to be a good swimmer' i guess i should've put 'em on once i was in there but i'm gonna make mistakes 'cause i'm just a beginner i'm like a fish out of water when i'm in the water not like a fish like i feel like i oughta be what with living so close to the sea and all front crawl? you must be jokin' i'm attempting breast stroke but i'm barely floatin' just hopin' that some of the energy i'm expendin' will result in a little bit of forward momentum at least that was my intention let's get some chips climb the cliffs find a seat looking out at the sea i was on the beach once looking out and i saw a seal looking right back at me looking right back at me it was looking at me that seal was looking at me i was looking forward to catching some waves but now i'm just caught up in the break water plus i've got this lifeguard guy on my case with his megaphone on and he's going on 'stay between the flags' but i'm flat on my face and, 'it takes more than flippers to be a good swimmer' i guess i should've put 'em on once i was in there but i'm gonna make mistakes 'cause i'm just a beginner i was looking forward to catching some waves but now i'm just caught up in the break water plus i've got this lifeguard guy on my case with his megaphone on and he's going on 'stay between the flags' but i'm flat on my face and, 'it takes more than flippers to be a good swimmer' i guess i should've put 'em on once i was in there but i'm gonna make mistakes 'cause i'm just a beginner

about

We Came Here Not For Gold was released in May 2011 and is a departure sonically from Cosmic Sounds. Sure, Hedluv still remains loyal to his Casio keyboards but these ones don't sound as 'warm'. Conceptually it is colder too. Where the previous album welcomes us into the world of a tight circle of friends, with its highly personal and disarmingly charming lyrics, this album keeps the listener at arms length and sets out to build a mythology around the duo.

Their flow and delivery is more assured, Passman reminiscent of a young Snoop Dogg in album highlight wot u kno. And the songs are bonafide hits. Anyone that has seen Hedluv + Passman live will be only too familiar with dreckly, flippers, the future! and Weird Nature, but here we find them in their infancy, underdeveloped and still in their experimental stage. And in a way this is what is so compelling about We Came Here Not For Gold, it sounds unfinished. The missing piece? The listener...
