    "With refreshingly intelligent guitar work evoking both Television and Maps and Atlases, the four tracks on Satellite People are perhaps best surmised in the title track, a tidy hybrid of Mission of Burma circa Signals, Calls and Marches EP, Pop Group and early Captain Beefheart." - AU Magazine
    "Ballsy, bluesy ..Satellite People is the debut EP from post-punk trio Glimmermen, a genre-hopping new band composed entirely of homegrown underground rock veterans" - HOT PRESS

Everything bleeds the same and everything reads the same and everything breathes the same as it ever did before Wise men have seen the monkeys on the moon but I wasn't really sure if it was real or in a cartoon Waves of slaves wash through my brain and render me a big fat nothing shore If I could just move my hand If I could mange to stand I'd tell them all to go to blazes ever more Oooo Satellite People Sun rises in the east sets in the west (background) Walls are built, boys are killed blood stains my eyes and the haves and the have nots and the wills and the will nots they carry out justice the same I am alone in my head for an instant but I can see the distance between these two points If I could just move my hand If I could mange to stand I'd tell them all to go to blazes ever more Satellite people in satellite towns watching satellite stories and waiting around

Yeah and in and out of the darkness you could say I developed this hardness but I made amends and I'm breakin mens arms along the way The trail I traveled was a bad trail the flush of youth soon became a shade of pale but I made a promise that I'm bringin it on home to you Yeah and blades is something I know something too you better believe it

I'll Be 04:15
There was a time a time when everthing was new a time when everything in the world was lit by a light that shone from you days were born days had died and the lines and the weight were borne by you an eye for an eye, a truth for a truth and a broken foot for a shoe I'll be, the sound of your wheel spin I'll be, your sacred heart of gold I'll be the colour of your lamp light I'll be the grass beneath your head tonight I stand and I watch by the world go I at everyone that I have ever known as they fade and as they die days were born days had died and the lines and weight were borne by you an eye for an eye, a truth for a truth and a broken foot for a shoe I'll be, the sound of your wheel spin I'll be, your sacred heart of gold I'll be the colour of your lamp light I'll be the grass beneath your head tonight

Glimmermen know exactly the sound they want to make & that's something we want to hear". Le Cool Magazine Dublin ... more
