Mr Flood's Party - Picture of Band

I had never seen a picture of Mr Flood's Party (well I wasn't looking for one!) anyway, stumbled across this on ebay, this is them in 1991.

'Compared To What' is such a cracking tune. Also a great reply to someone who remarks such and such a song is rubbish, just say 'compared to what' and that usually shuts them up.

Looks like two different line-ups, apart from the one sporting a hat.  The dress code of the first lot looks too contemporary, compared to the 70's vibe the second lot lave going on, plus a member short, though post Sunday lunch my eyes might be deceiving me.

 love the lie and lie the love
A-hangin’ on, with push and shove
Possession is the motivation
That is hangin’ up the goddamn nation
Looks like we always end up in a rut (everybody now!) BAM!
Tryin’ to make it real — compared to what?

This record is another band with same name, they are ALT-Rock and from Canada.

The band photo is from the Cotillon album which is pysch rock ? I am not 100% convinced thats the same group as on compared to what either.

And for a soulful twist........Look out for Roberta Flacks version!

Appropriate lyrics in the Trump Era. What goes around, eh?

 


"Compared To What"
 
 
 

Love the lie and lie the love
Hangin' on, with a push and shove
Possession is the motivation
That is hangin' up the God-damn nation
Looks like we always end up in a rut (everybody now!)
Tryin' to make it real - compared to what?

Slaughterhouse is killin' hogs
Twisted children killin' frogs
Poor dumb rednecks rollin' logs
Tired old ladies kissin' dogs
Hate the human, love that stinking mutt (I can't stand it!)
Try to make it real - compared to what?

The President, he's got his war
Folks don't know just what it's for
Nobody gives us rhyme or reason
Have one doubt, they call it treason
We're chicken-feathers, all without one gut (God damn it!)
Tryin' to make it real - compared to what? (Sock it to me, now)

Church on Sunday, sleep and nod
Tryin' to duck the wrath of God
Preacher's fillin' us with fright
Tryin' to tell us what he thinks is right
He really got to be some kind of nut (I can't use it!)
Tryin' to make it real - compared to what?

Where's that bee and where's that honey?
Where's my God and where's my money
Unreal values, crass distortion
Unwed mothers need abortion
Kind of brings to mind ol' young King Tut (He did it now)
Tried to make it real - compared to what?!

I am not sure the later one is the same group. But I thought the psch / horn-rock group on Cotillion were deffo the same one that did 'CTW?'
