about

Press for Glimmermen’s I'm Dead LP:

"a record of nine completely individual, unique songs – a feat which is surprisingly rare in a modern industry where musicians, especially smaller ones, rarely step outside of their comfort zone. I’m Dead really is a pleasure to listen to.’ - Indulge-Sound (UK)

"Glimmermen shine brightly. Look no further than 'Last Song', two and a half minutes of near-perfect power pop, or bittersweet lead single, 'This Town', as addictive as chocolate heroin" - Hot Press

There's a grittiness and urgency here that thrills, the debut album from this Dublin trio hits you like a punch in the midriff - Irish Independent

"brimming with bounce, grounded in guitars and oozing melodies from too many influences to mention. - Dublin Concerts

"A raw but engaging record full of accomplished and powerful songs" - Irish Daily Star

"The forces of light and darkness collide in fractured bass-and-guitar interplay and raw-throated bellows" -Spin (US)

"Sparse..witty rock...Glimmermen deliver a clever back to basics record" - Sunday Business Post

"The title track sideblinds you with its Ruts-style ska...if you’re ever aching for a hit of Wire or The Members (and why ever not?), then you’ll get it here" - Irish Times

glimmermen Dublin, Ireland

"Glimmermen are a different sort of band. In a sea of Spector-like indie landfill fodder they wear their honesty & integrity on their black sleeves with a sound that goes straight to the heart. Glimmermen know exactly the sound they want to make & that's something we want to hear". Le Cool Magazine Dublin ... more

Track Name: I'm Dead
I'M DEAD

I'm dead
Flies have laid eggs in my head
their maggot brood don't give a damn
Yeah what I did or what I said

I'm dead
Yeah they closed the lid on me
and now the dark is all I see
but in a strange way I feel free

What happened to my electricity?
What happened to my bodies energy?
What happened to my soul and all my thoughts and all my goals?
and all my friends and all my foes and all I've seen....

I'm dead
I never been no fuckin' slave
I never took more than I gave
so you can dance upon my grave

I'm dead
I never been no god damn saint
careful the picture that you paint
prayers and angels man I ‘aint.

What happened to my electricity?
What happened to my body’s chemistry?
What happened to my soul and all my thoughts and all my goals?
and all my friends and all my foes and all I've seen…

I'm dead
I never been no god damn saint
careful the picture that you paint
prayers and angels man I ‘aint

I'm dead
Yeah they closed the lid on me
and now the dark is all I see
but in a strange way I feel free
Track Name: Last Song
LAST SONG

Came across a picture it wasn’t you but it looked like you and and they act like you
I want to make you an offer how about a bunch of cash for a punch in the face
I’ll lay down on the ceiling and count the tiles on the floor you can count to ten again and again
I’ve got that crooked feeling this day is clouding over turn that radio on

Is this the last song we’ll ever hear?

I’m tearing up the free way my jaw is on the floor and it feels so good
Hells just around the corner the devils got my back like I knew he would
I start to falling backwards I never been no island
I’m making mountains of mole-hills a storm is brewing in my head
Turn that radio on

Is this the last song?
Track Name: Ex = Out
Ex = Out

This is my one mistake
This is my second phase
This is my water-line
This is my pallatine
This is my wasted time
This is my words that rhyme
This is my waking chime
This is my sacred climb

equals out

I was a patient man
I did not all I planned
I couldn’t be no slave
I would’nt be no save
I was a mockingbird
I know it sound absurd
I promise you received
My brains are in my feet

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Track Name: Angels and Devils
ANGELS AND DEVILS

They say the night is darkest just before the dawn
This can’t go on, this can’t go on
What is the colour of the cloud you lye upon?
As fast as long as fast as long
All out, empty is the way of things
And things connect to other things
And they connect to other things
These things are broken and you know

And then the sound of angels
The down and the dread
And then the sound of devils
Inside your head

The morning comes early around here I think you’ll find
Make no mistake, you big mistake!
They run along a little and then they break
and then the break and then they break
Your lines run left to right along the lines and through the lines
and back the lines until they reach their end
And things connect to other things
These things are broken and you know

And then the sound of angels
The down and the dread
And then the sound of devils
Inside your head

Ho oh

And then the sound of angels
The down and the dread
And then the sound of devils
Inside your head
Track Name: There was a boy
THERE WAS A BOY

There was a boy who was always afraid
Of everything and nothing, of how he was made
Of the thoughts in his head
Floating feathers of lead
Of towers in the sky and ways to wake the dead

Lift yourself boy
Trip yourself boy
Try yourself boy
You may believe in nothing but..

Towns these days, really take him away
And hold his head way down under the clouds they trade
A thousand miles in his head fogot that he’d eaten the bread
‘Round and round and turning down until he’s dead

Lift yourself boy
Trip yourself boy
Try yourself boy
You may believe in nothing but..

Ba da da da ba da da da da da da da da
Track Name: This Town
THIS TOWN

This town is dead feel like I’m in a cheap cartoon
Nobody bothered drawing any other characters and I
Begin to walk an empty city under a badly painted moon ‘til I fade out

This town is dead feel like my heads a big balloon
I float above all these atlas pages I’ll get to the end soon
My heart claims that there be monsters in this room
Big head fly high

But I can see that there’s something amazing beyond this town tonight
And I’ll concede the eyes of this beholder are older not wiser tonight

This town is dead my fingers walk until they’re beat
This box is hanging like an empty carcass my grave will be this seat
My head claims that there be nothing to this sound
Big heart kill time

But I can see that there’s something amazing beyond this town tonight
And I’ll concede the eyes of this beholder are older not wiser tonight

When I was a boy I had just dreams and no fears the sound of the city was music to my ears the moon and the stars are reflections in your tears and I am free tonight

This town is dead feel like I’m in a cheap cartoon
Nobody bothered drawing any other characters and I
Begin to walk an empty city under a badly painted moon ‘til I fade out
Track Name: Believe Me
Believe Me

The sound of your voice
It leaves me no chance of healing
Sold plans to the boys
Cut the brakes and then sent them speeding
Charred skin to the bone
Sold your bridge as your world was burning
Tore everything down
Sleep sound as my house is crumbling

Believe Me

Blue skies up ahead
At least I can make you see them
A trick of the light
Your dead but you think you’re breathing
I died long ago
When the numbers became my seasons
In the wires in the pipes
Faded into the great uneven

This space is a cage
Won’t be long ‘til they put me under
My face hasn’t changed even since I been torn asunder
Same talk about change
My sense is that nothings moving
What happened my name
Did it ever mean anything here?

Believe Me
Track Name: Peace at last
PEACE AT LAST

Have I found peace at last? I really think so
Have I found peace at last? You know I don’t know
Have I found peace at last? You know I hope so

But I can never be sure
I can never be sure
Shall we wake one morn in Spring
Glad at heart of everything

Won’t let it in on me, leave it all behind
I build the time for me, 3000 clocks I wind
The whispered cage descends all around us now

But I can never be sure
I can never be sure
Shall we wake one morn in Spring
Glad at heart of everything

Have I found peace at last?
Track Name: Home
HOME

Yeah when I was eighteen, I looked for an exit
Yeah while I was waiting I made for a train line
The parrallels were on fire, my one point perspective
I wasn’t no number, I wasn’t no peasant
She looked like an angel, she looked like a devil
The lights were running through my head
The colours were changing

I came from the country I made for the city
I came from the country I made for the city

A charge of white lightening moved me between shadows
Squared a circle and then some, made my mistakes in the half-light
I caught a fistful of nothing my prayers rubbed right off my fingers
She looked like a devil, her colours were fading

I came from the country I made for the city
I came from the country I made for the city
And I found home, and I found home and I found home and I found home

Let me tell you about it..

Yeah I could hear screaming, my ear was just like a wiindow
My eyelids were shut tight my body felt like a dead weight
The clocks all stopped on the main street, the earth was clinging to my feet
A jet trail scarred the sky deep red The scream was inside of my head

I came from the country I made for the city
I came from the country I made for the city

And I found home, and I found home and I found home and I found home
