about

Big guitars, singalong chorus’s, epic brass and a restless lyricism about change, life and beyond.

The Road is a triumphant return to the musical arena for Glad & Dave ( previously Red Ochre) who have survived all that a life time of dedication to music will throw at you and have come out the other end with a bunch of tunes that celebrates the future.

Coming on like The Rolling Stones covering Prehistoric Sounds era The Saints or Neil Young with a brass section for the rocky tracks. The album also has delicious moody moments which " channel Springsteen at his melancholy best " according to Midnight Oil's Rob Hirst.

Most of all The Road is a celebration of the bumps and turns that life can throw at you, from two people who have taken that ride.

It's exhilarating, moving and joyous. Enjoy.

Track Name: Get Me To The Devil On Time
I don't want to waste another lifetime
I don't want to spend another daylight shooting high
Running through the streets with my hands on fire
Wrapping my brain in telephone wire

Give me easy money Make me dirty love
Tie my hands to the wheel But get me to the devil on time

I've got a six gun holly roller in my head
Singing my dreams cause all my prayers are dead


Give me easy money Make me dirty love
Tie my hands to the wheel But get me to the devil on time

And I won't break down I won't breakdown
And I won't break down I won't breakdown

Get me to the Devil on time

Tearing up the sunshine running through the mud
Rain keeps falling but these tears are not enough
Windscreens howling with the coming of the sun
I’m going to keep pushing through mountains and the floods


Give me easy money Make me dirty love

Tie my hands to the wheel But get me to the devil on time

Get me to the devil Get me to the Devil Get me to the Devil

Get me to the Devil on time
Track Name: Shine A Light
Once I was a gambler a rolling stone
Once I was a gypsy I took the hardest road
Once I was a minstrel and for my supper I would sing
From the Hopetoun to Paris we gave it everything, alright


Shine a Light Shine a little light Shine a light on me tonight
Shine a Light Shine a little light Shine a light on me tonight


I’ve been covered in roses grazed by thorns
Thrown caution to the winds Prayed to the dawn
Found love in hard places and I carried my ring
Through the torment the shadows and every thing, alright


Shine a Light Shine a little light Shine a light on me tonight
Shine a Light Shine a little light Shine a light on me tonight


And tell everybody that I’m doing well
I’m at the gates of heaven and I’m walking on the road to hell

So you can kiss me softly and show me a sign
cause I’m on the dark side tonight


Shine a Light Shine a little light Shine a light on me tonight
Shine a Light Shine a little light Shine a light on me tonight
Shine a Light Shine a little light Shine a light on me tonight
Shine a Light Shine a little light Shine a light on me tonight
Track Name: I Was A King
I was a King
Searching for a river to hold me

I was a highway looking for a mountain to climb

I was a saint I was a lover
I held the light and then it slipped away

I was a King I was a King

I was a sailor
Floating on an ocean of gold
I was a dancer praying to my soul on the road

I was a saint I was a lover
I held the light and then it slipped away

I was a King I was a King

I was a King I was a King

I was a child living every day by the sun
I was a winner everybody says it was so

I was a saint I was a lover
I held the light and then it slipped away

I was a King, I was a King , I Was a King, I Was a King
