about

The Poison Sisters Glasgow, UK

Since they first landed on this here planet, The Poison Sisters have built up a reputation for gob-smacking their audiences with their own unique mixture of bone-crunching rock'n'roll, punk bravado, jazz sneakiness, wilful experimentalism, pop sensibilities and tales of murder, lust, loss and lurid duplicity.
Their most recent album, "Keelhauling with...." was released in April of 2015.

Track Name: Gene Pull
Gene Pull

You looked at me, just that little bit too long,
And from that look, I could see your switches turning on,
One by one.

There's way too much chlorine in this pool,
When you're alone,
You're alone.

I felt this heat, when you walked into the room,
My electrics failed, my heart, it just went,
Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom.

There's way too much chlorine in this pool.

There's a shark, swimming in my gene pool,
Broken hearts, forever in my gene pool.
There's a shark, swimming in my gene pool,
Broken hearts, forever in my gene pool.

There's way too much chlorine in this pool,
Don't be alone.
Track Name: Frame 313
Frame 313

Chrome and black, in the midday sun,
Flags are out, for the chosen one,
And the motorcade was driving oh-so slow,
Waving goodbye, wave him goodbye.

313, it's in frame 313,
313, it's in there somewhere....

Body count, body shot,
Quick head count, then, boom !!.... the headshot.
And Jackie tried to crawl her way home,
From the back of the car,
From the back of the car.

313, it's in frame 313,
313, it's in there somewhere....

As the sirens disappeared, over the hill,
I'd just shot JFK, with my eight-mil.
And I will live within the confines of this frame,
Till the day that I die,
Till the day that I....

313, it's in frame 313,
313, it's in there somewhere....

313, it's in frame 313,
313, it's in there somewhere....
Track Name: Diabolik
Diabolik

If she floats, then we burn her,
If she drowns, then she's clean.

Come back to bed, he said,
Jesus Christ on the wall, looking on.
But she was still looking out of the window,
Still looking out of the window,
At the low, low moon.
She turned to him, with eyes like stars,
Said this,
Said this.

There are devils in this house,
I've seen them,
Gathered round our bed,
Like they've got tickets for the show,
Tickets for the show,
Tickets for the show,
Tickets for the show.
Oh, don't you know.

Well the charges are this,
You did lay with Thomas Frome,
While imps did gather round your bed.
You then made an image of his wife,
Stabbed it with a knife,
Which did cause her a great sickness in the head.
Now, I'm sure you're sweet enough,
But I'd bet my very soul,
That satan is abroad beneath those skirts.

Well, it's true, I'm no angel,
That's for sure.
But that Matthew Hopkins counts his money like a whore,
Money like a whore,
Money like a whore, yeah,
Money like a whore, yeah.
My lords, I emplore.

If she floats, then we burn her,
If she drowns....
Then she's clean.
Then she's clean.
Then she's clean.
Then she's clean.

Oh. this place is so....
Place is so unclean....
Track Name: Keelhauled
Keelhauled

Singing, please don't leave,
I need, I need you so.
It feels, like I've been keelhauled,
As the salt, corrodes my soul.

Everything was fine until you said I'd better go.

Woah oh oh

You just stand there, and watch me,
As it slowly, splits apart.
You walk on down that hallway,
As the salt, corrodes my heart.

Everything was fine until you said I'd better go.

Woah oh oh

Singing, please don't leave,
I need, I need you so.
It feels, like I've been keelhauled,
As the salt, corrodes my soul.

Everything was fine until you said I'd better go.

Woah oh oh
Track Name: Come And Ride Shotgun
Come And Ride Shotgun

So do you wanna ride shotgun, with me ??
There's room on this stagecoach,
For one last mistake,
Where a heart that's been battered,
Can sink without trace.
So, do you wanna, ride shotgun, with me ??

I've seen where you're coming from,
Believe me, I know how it's gonna end.
Just one long procession,
Of those asshole boyfriends.
Ah, but, you could always ride shotgun with me, yeah.

Some might stop you, say, I think you've lost your way.
They've never been this far out of town before, so,
What do they know ??
Some might stop you, say, I think I heard,
I heard you've lost your way.
They've never been, this far down.
Keep on walking,
I'll do the rest.

So, do you wanna, ride shotgun, with me ??
The lights out here in the desert,
Can make things complete.
And the hum from the pylons,
Will sing you to sleep.
So, keep on walking outta town,
Come ride with me.
Ride, ride, ride with me.

Some might stop you, say, have you heard, the gas station's burning down ??
They set fire to themselves, all the time.
Some might stop you, say, have you heard, the trains gone, clean off its rails ??
You and me both, we know,
We know that it always pulls itself.
It always pulls itself.
Keep on walking,
Your bound to be blessed.

So, if you wanna, ride shotgun, for me,
Just jump up here beside me,
I'll put this twelve-guage in your hands.
You can out the barrel,
Where it truly belongs.
In between your teeth,
And right up against your tongue.

And slowly,
I'll flick on the reigns.
As the wheels crush this landscape,
Of human remains.
And the horses,
Start pulling us down.
As the damned,
Make their way,
Below ground.
Track Name: Survival Of The Sickest
Survival Of The Sickest

Don't it make you wanna scream,
Been this way since seventeen.
Still no-one can explain the reason why,
Why the sun don't shine on me.

No, the sun won't shine on me, oh,
The stars, they just won't let me be, no.
And they still won't cross, though,
I try so hard to move them.

Every time it comes around,
I find myself,
Falling way back underground.

You ask me where I've been, and I say,
Well, baby, I've survived, woah-oh.
You ask me what I've done, and I say,
I've just about managed to stay alive.
You ask me where I've been, and I say,
Well, baby, I've survived, woah-oh.

All the charts say I'm alive,
The so-called, kamikaze who survived.
The very picture of a fallen angel,
Who's had his wings clipped all his life.

When you've had your wings clipped all your life,
The planets just don't coincide.
And the map that's on your,
Hand it just can't save you.

Every time it comes around,
I find myself,
Falling way back underground.

You ask me where I've been, and I say,
Well, baby, I've survived, woah-oh.
You ask me what I've done, and I say,
I've just about managed to stay alive.
You ask me where I've been, and I say,
Well, baby, I've survived, woah-oh.
Track Name: Mata Hari
Mata Hari

There's a spy,
In my house of love.
And whatever I do these days,
It'll never be enough.

You should see the way she lies,
The spy in my house of love.

Sleeper cells,
Are now wide awake.
She's heading for the border, where,
Checkpoint Charlie waits.

And I could see it,
I could see it,
I could see it,
In her eyes.

Everything that's said,
Will be used against.
In some messed-up show trial,
In evidence.

You should see the way she lies,
Beside in my house of love,
Beside in my house of love,
You should see the way she....
Track Name: Bermuda Love Triangle
Bermuda Love Triangle

Three on the bed, and the middle one said, move over,
Like the fool I am, I moved, fell out the rollercoaster.
They tell me they've lost some of their best pilots that way,
They put them up in these high-tech jets, but the signals, still fade.

And I watch them disappear on my radar,
Hand in hand, they disappear on my radar.
Into the sunset,
Gets me so upset.

Mission control, this is the lost patrol, we can't find her,
She disappeared into the clouds, another radar blip beside her.
They tell me they've missed some of their best heart-attacks that way,
They get the drop, the target locks, but the signal it still fades.

And I watch them disappear on my radar,
Hand in hand, they disappear on my radar.
Into the sunset,
Gets me so upset.

Three on the bed, and the middle one said, move over,
Like the fool I am, I moved, fell out the rollercoaster.

And I watch them disappear on my radar,
Hand in hand, they disappear on my radar.
Into the sunset,
Gets me so upset.
Into the sun,
Gets me so up,
Into the sunset.
Oh-oh.
Track Name: Ship On Fire
Ship On Fire

Ship on fire, heading out to sea,
I was causing so much confusion, that they,
Pulled me away.
Like a,
Ship on fire, if you can, see what that means,
No-one wants to be around when it hits the magazine.

But they don't see,
The way that you looked at me.
Like a comet on the run,
I think of it, and I just burn.

Like a,
Ship on fire, seen from the safety of the shore,
You can thank your lucky stars, it's not your,
Problem anymore.
Like a,
Ship on fire, well I tried not to burn right down, but,
Every time they check the guage, it's still not,
Under control.

But they don't see,
The way that you looked at me.
Like the powder waiting in the gun,
I think of you, and I just burn.

Woah-oh-oh-oh

But they don't see,
The way that you look at me.
Like a comet on the run,
I think of it, and I just burn.

Like a,
Ship on fire.

Woah-oh-oh-oh
Track Name: Nil By Roadkill
Nil By Roadkill

The road is long, yeah,
Lined with thorns, yeah,
And I'm bleeding all over the sidewalk.
But I gotta go on,
Yeah, I gotta go on,
Yeah, I gotta go on.

'Cos you're not gonna get your, roadkill here tonight,
You can unleash all the dogs you want, I still won't bite.
No, you're not gonna get your, roadkill here tonight,
'Cos somewhere up ahead, she's waiting on me,
She holds the light.
She holds the light.

Then there are the liars,
By the side of the road, sitting round their camp fires,
Always trying to pour oil on the surface.
But I won't slip down,
No, I won't slip down,
No, I won't slip down.

'Cos they're not gonna get their, roadkill here tonight,
They can stick in all the pins they want, I still won't bite.
No, they're not gonna get their, roadkill here tonight,
'Cos somewhere up ahead, she's waiting for me,
She holds the light.
