about

Sturm und Drang* is a dark brooding, SadCore/Alt-Blues E.P.

'Sturm und Drang' is darker than previous works, with heavier guitar work over slowly evolving tracks. The lyrics focus on ideas of despair, lost friendships and ennui.

On 'Sturm und Drang' Tuttle has also teamed up with guitarist Tony Apple (of Cornwall's Gwelhellin) for a brooding cover of Gillian Welch's 'One Monkey'.

The EP is available both digitally and on CD

*Sturm und Drang is German and is usually translated as 'Storm and Stress'. It was originally an 18th Century Romantic movement focussing on the emotions over logic. The term Sturm und Drang is used to describe turmoil or emotional intensity.

Track Name: The River
The river is wide
The river is deep
I feel the river
Pull me off my feet

The river is long
The river is wild
Washes into to ocean
Carries me along

Won't you save me
Won't somebody save me
Oh God, save me

The river is wide
The river is deep
I feel the river
Pull me off my feet

The river is long
The river is wild
Washes into to ocean
Carries me along

Won't you save me
Won't somebody save me
Oh God, save me

The river is wide
The river is deep
I feel the river
Pull me off my feet

The river is long
The river is wild
Washes into to ocean
Carries me along

Won't you save me
Won't somebody save me
Oh God, save me
Track Name: One Monkey
(written by Gillian Welch & David Rawlings)

One monkey don't stop the show
One monkey don't stop the show
One monkey don't stop the show
Whoa, so get on board

One monkey don't stop the show
One monkey don't stop the show
One monkey don't stop the show
Whoa, so get on board

Here comes the freight train
Here comes the freight train
Here comes the freight train
So get on board

One monkey don't stop the show
One monkey don't stop the show
One monkey don't stop the show
Whoa, so get on board

There is a purpose, a running keep
There is a captain, with a steady wheel

One monkey don't stop the show
One monkey don't stop the show
One monkey don't stop the show
Whoa, so get on board

One monkey don't stop the show
One monkey don't stop the show
One monkey don't stop the show
Whoa, so get on board

Here comes the slow train
Here comes the slow train
Here comes the slow train
So get on board

Oe monkey don't stop the show
One monkey don't stop the show
One monkey don't stop the show
Whoa, so get on board

She's at the station, running slow
Ready for leavin', she's gonna go

One monkey don't stop the show
One monkey don't stop the show
One monkey don't stop the show
Whoa....
Track Name: Sad Little Man
You're a sad little man
Looking for an angry stance
A one man tango dance
Trying to prove that no one's on your side.

You're a pained little man
In a corner again
Lost down another dead end
Sarcasm drips like venom from your tongue

Downed a bottle of your failed schemes
Bed sit broken dreams


You're a sad little man
More chip than shoulder my friend
Arrogant. Can't be pleased.
Take your shit and get up off your knees
Track Name: 40 Years
I'm here to help
But I'm not helping
I'm here to please
But I'm not pleasing anyone
Anyone

Sometimes I feel
Like a hollow ball
Filled with nothing
And just rolling on
and on

40 years of learning
And I don't know a thing
Filled with knowledge
But I'm atrophied within

40 years of learning
And I've just realised
40 years to go
There ain't no prize

I need some help
But no one's helping
I'm on my knees
Begging, please
Please please please

Sometimes I feel like
Nothing at all
Looking forwards
Looking backwards
And I can't tell
Which way I'm looking at all

40 years of learning
And I don't know a thing
Filled with knowledge
But I'm atrophied within

40 years of learning
And I've just realised
40 years to go
There ain't no prize
