About Ye Gods!

After many years of taking music too seriously and finding it hard to remember how to smile, Cherrance Metal and I were drinking an evil brew called Pigs Ear at the Slippit Inn motorcycle rally. While very, very drunk, the band was conceived. We decided to create a parody, in the same vein as Spinal Tap, Bad News, Tenacious D and The Darkness.

Sometimes, when encountering the tiny minds of drummers and bassists, questionable inspiration cannot be thwarted by the sober light of day. Dave Against The Machine and Stratt Williams were plied with booze and false promises until a rehearsal was booked.

Since then, Ye Gods! have relentlessly upset audiences (and each other) with their wanton destruction of songs, disturbingly loud noise generation, wearing of togas and mullet wigs and refusal to take music seriously.

Ye Gods! Videos

Some videos by Ye Gods!

Ye Gods

Below is a video of Ye Gods! performing Ye Gods – a song that shares its name with the band, in case you’re feeling confused. I like to refer to it as the most expensive video never paid for. It was directed by James Holloway of Eyelights as a promo, showing the quality of work their studio can offer. It allowed Ye Gods! to dick about on motorcycles and show how sexy a group of fat, sunburnt men can look in togas (hmm...).


Ye Gods Lyrics

Disciples of rock, worshippers of roll, heed the word that is sung to you, deep down in your soul,

Jack in your job, go sign on the dole, bow thine head to the great god Metal at the alter of rock and roll,

Ye Gods, Ye Gods, Ye Gods, Ye Gods.

AC/DC, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Motorhead, keep the great god Metal appeased,

Listen to pop music, instead of mighty rock, I'd rather take up a rusty blade, and cut off my own cock,

Ye Gods, Ye Gods, Ye Gods, Ye Gods.

We like drinking beer, and riding motorbikes, and playing guitar, bass and drums, late into the night,

Pits of fire and brimstone, listen to my dream, bring forth the mighty heavy metal, rock and roll machine,

Ye Gods, Ye Gods, Ye Gods, Ye Gods.

Little Head

Little Head was a song written to celebrate Mega Geoff’s tiny head for his 40th birthday. Fair play to Mega Geoff for managing to keep a straight face while we filmed this. The video was filmed at Room 4 Rehearsal Studios in Bristol.

Little Head Lyrics

So tiny, so small, so cute, little head.

Geoff's, small, head, pat it, pat it, pat it, pat it.

Geoff's, small, head, pat it, stroke it, lick it, love it.

So tiny, so small, so cute, little head.

Dr Who Theme Tune

One of the first tracks we recorded was an Iron Maiden-esque version of the Dr Who theme tune, which has been quite highly acclaimed and used by the BBC. Not for use in Dr Who unfortunately (it was used in an episode of Hard Sell), although we are ever hopeful.

I Loves You, I Fucks You, I Buys You Chips

This video was r eleased on Valentine's Day 2016 (it seemed apt...).

If you're a man who isn't good with words, Ye Gods! will deal with the poetry your lady wants on Valentine's day. Woo your woman. Play her this song. She'll love it. For sure.

I Loves You, I Fucks You, I Buys You Chips was inspired by a real-life incident. My good friend, Seggy 'The Phantom' Hedges, was on his way home from the seething metropolis of Bristol to the safe havens of Portishead after a night on beer one dark and misty night. Seggy boarded that fabled chariot, the A369 (a bus), and sat on the back seat behind a silver-tongued devil who was in the middle of wooing his woman. The couple started arguing, and said silver-tongued devil uttered the immortal words:

"I loves Ee, I Fucks Ee, I buys Ee chips, what more does Ee want?"

When Seggy told me this story, I realised that a moment that special, so filled with love and passion, could not go unrecorded in history. It would be criminal to allow such a travesty to occur. Thus, this song was written.

I Loves You I Fucks You I Buys You Chips is on the studio album Grimoire of the Gods. See how to buy it below.

I Loves You I Fucks You I Buys You Chips Lyrics

I loves you but you winds I up, I loves you but you winds I up, I loves you I fucks you I buys you chips, I loves you but you winds I up, I don't know what more you want from me.

I loves you but you does my head in, I loves you but you does my head in, I loves you respects you I licks you out, I loves you but you does my head in, I don't know what more you want from me,

I loves you I fucks you I buys you chips, I loves you I fucks you I buys you chips, I loves you I fucks you I buys you chips, I loves you and I buys you chips.

I loves you but you get on me tits, I loves you but you get on me tits, I loves you I honours you I tweaks your nips, I loves you but you get on me tits, I don't know what more you want from me,

I loves you I fucks you I buys you chips, I loves you I fucks you I buys you chips, I loves you I fucks you I buys you chips, I loves you and I buys you chips.
