"Voted #2 best single of 2009"

-- SoundsXP Writers Poll - London, England


“Completely ace garage fun time with The Humms. Lead track "Are You Dead?" has a great surf feel to it with a brilliant pop chorus. Quite Pixies-like in it's approach, but much more melodic with a few twists and turns in it like Mercury Rev on amphetamines - certainly far from the two-chord end of the garage spectrum. If there's any justice in the world this would be a huge hit! "Do The Graverobber" is also totally great, as is the rest of this manic, wildly inventive and goddamn catchy-as-shit EP. Best thing I've heard in ages."

-- The Sheffield Phonographic Corp - Sheffield, UK


"The songs are simple and enjoyable with the likes of 'Are You Dead?' being as catchy and contagious as swine flu. However, the highlight for me is the 'Southern Comfort' blues sound of 'LSD Is Evil!' that sounds like it’s being played at a bar in a Louisiana Swamp! A great EP that has encouraged me to seek out more."

Track Name: Are You Dead?
Stalking you
when your eyes are closed
It's the only way
to create a ghost

You're standing tall
with nothing to lose
except for everything
you pick and choose

Every move you make is a mistake
every move you make is a mistake
every move you make..

So cut the lines
from the rest of town
come on In and
see what's going down

You look so fine
in your sleeping gown
you'd look even better
sleeping in the ground

Darling see
standing here so close to me
Things are bad
as bad as bad as good could be

and I see no
other way to get away from you
Life's so sad
in other words I've come for you
Tonight

So you may scream
when I am coming out
feel so free there's
no one for miles around

You can hide
but I'd rather you run
I've got time
and I like to have fun

They'll never know
because your sister is out of town
3 whole weeks
before your mother is coming down

I've got a plan and I will use it
I've got a plan and I will use

Darling see
standing here so close to me
Things are bad
as bad as bad as good could be

and I see no
other way to get away from you
Life's so sad
in other words I've come for you
Tonight

and how
the clouds
go by
so slow

and how
the screams
come out
so loud

are you dead?
are you dead?
are you dead?

Darling see
standing here so close to me
Things are bad
as bad as bad as good could be

and I see no
other way to get away from you
Life's so sad
in other words I've come for you
Tonight
