about

Eiscafe began as an idea I had in 2011 to make some use out of my ever-accumulating demos. Encouraged by Simon Drowner, I decided to send musical ideas to anyone who wanted to collaborate, with the goal of recording and releasing a single every week. It didn't quite work out like that but I'm very proud of what did get made. Some very enjoyable songs. And that's the whole point.

Will hopefully be adding to this in future.

Track Name: Quitting You Is Harder Than Candy (featuring Liz Enthusiasm of Freezepop)
QUITTING YOU IS HARDER THAN CANDY

Quitting you is harder than candy
But this time I’m leaving baby
My sweet tooth is loose from your sugar now

Although I give you cavities
Without me you lose all sense of gravity
Your sticky lips are stuck with me now

And the nighttime lasts/is too long
And the nighttime just seems wrong without you (what can a girl do?)

Although you give me tummyaches
Leaving you is a big mistake
A sugar rush shouldn’t end in heartbreak now

Quittin’ me is harder than candy
So come wrap your lips around me
Quitting me won’t taste as good as this

And the nighttime lasts/is too long
And the nighttime just seems wrong without you

Quitting you is harder than candy Quitting you is harder than candy Quitting you is harder than quitting candy
Track Name: Slag To Love (featuring David Barnett)
SLAG TO LOVE

I first met you in the bowels of the Famous Cock
You took me back to Bethnal Green and blew me off my socks
I showed you some magic tracks you said you liked what you saw
Then we took to the linoleum and made each other raw

What you did to me wasn't very nice
You broke my heart in two not once but twice
You took me for a fool and I tried hard to play it cool
'Cause I'm a slag to love

I knew you weren't the kind of girl to be just a one man band
But I hoped perhaps a little naively you'd be more than a one night stand
It was painfully obvious it would all end in tears
Especially when you left me with an embarrassing souvenir

What you did to me wasn't very nice
You broke my heart in two not once but twice
You took me for a fool and I tried hard to play it cool
'Cause I'm a slag to love

What you did to me wasn't very nice
You broke my heart in two not once but twice
You chewed it up, you spat it out, you chopped it into tiny pieces
You turned it into a casserole and then you made me eat it

Not literally, I'm speaking allegorically
I won't forget you but I forgive you
'Cause I've found someone new who's really very nice
She thinks I'm pretty cool, she's stayed round my place twice
She realises I'm quite a catch, she even sleeps in the wet patch

And I'm a slag to love
Track Name: Smoke Of Certain Afternoons (featuring Rob Britton)
Smoke Of Certain Afternoons

The marker, the lip smear
The whiskey in the carpet
Held upwards, hungover
Skipped another heartbeat
Just hold on to something
An ironing board, a keyboard stand
Just hold on to one thing
You haven't nailed down

The leg cross, rolled ankle
A swimming pool eye flashes
The floral in the landscape
And Adam lost his glasses
Just hold on to something
A smokey bar, a strangers hand
Just hold on to one thing
You haven't nailed down
