VERSE Well she's a broad minded girl and I'm a long haired man I see my future shining bright in her apple red lips She said one condition applies As the oil sheik’s nephew kissed her eyes Don't be mad if I run my hand up the enemies thigh Sitting in the millionaire docks Making angels from a cigarette box Unimpressed by the way I dress and the ice cream She said deep down I'm really kinda shy From the lap of a Japanese spy Don't be mad if I run my hand up the enemies thigh CHORUS There’s cocoa in the barn you can shoot it in your arm all night There’s credit on your charm pack your bag before it’s gone alright VERSE Elvis preacher in the Bahrain sun Selling weddings to the love struck Passes by while she catches the eye of a rap star She said I can be discreet I’d lick the blood off a matadors feet I said well hey, this must be the day for a new way CHORUS There’s cocoa in the barn you can shoot it in your arm all night There’s credit on your charm pack your bag before it’s gone alright

about

Chavo is a London based band, initially formed as a Balkan recital outfit playing acoustic music to seated audiences. Very quickly the audiences began to stand up and the show times moved from 3pm to 3am. Sweating it out on the oom-pah music circuit became the norm, and after many years Chavo felt a desire for change. They waved goodbye to the traditional material (often sung in Roma or Serbian) and crafted an album of original songs in their home tongue - English. A change in line up and instrumentation also followed as they caught up with the technology of the 1970’s. What appears to have distilled from this epic journey is both imaginative and intriguing. A percussion heavy, mandolin infused, vintage keys indie band with seductive female bv’s, pounding bass lines, 4-floor dance rhythms and harmonic discord - a firm footing in the west with a nod to the east.
