about

The album was recorded in the summer of 2013 around July I believe. It features Steve BLaque as producer engineer and multi instrumentalist and vocalist Suzanne Robare.
Charlotte Lowe performed in Beijing between 2012 and early 2014 and probably notched up about 50 performances....
Give Me 8 is their only release and we're offering the songs here as free downloads to assist the notion that we'd pay Starbucks shitloads for shit because they're famous and pay nothing for music because ultimately as humans we all want something gratis.....

credits

released April 10, 2016

Steve BLaque coz he works like a ninja and Chris Newbery, Colin Richards Mark Burnham and the VA manager @ that time Qi Bin. To the musical artists we've ripped off in covering the songs if at any time there's a dime that brings sense to this rhyme then please note there's gonna be payment on time..but if it's the courts we go...sorry we don't got not show.

THe album was produced, recorded and engineered and mastered at Forbidden City Studios in Beijing. Chief audio engineer William Peck and publicist Ben Carstairs overseeing the operation. At the time the studio was very underdone with much of the equipment needed for recording not being in use but we can say that it was recorded entirely on Ableton Live 8 and that an M audio sound card was used but at this time not entirely sure of its product number. A Behringer condenser Mic took all the vocal parts and both Gibson and Fender guitars were used.

Forbidden City Studios have grown into another creature in these days and if you're in Beijing and want to get a sound..try them out...hey ''i liked the company that much ..i bought it''.

Special thanks to Levan Stanes who handles all of Forbidden City's and Steve Blaque's artistic and design needs and it was he of course who created the album cover for Give Me 8.

Track Name: Heard it Through the Grapevine
Heard it Through the Grapevine
I bet you're wonderin' how I knew
'Bout your plans to make me blue
With some other guy you knew before
Between the two of us guys
You know I loved you more
It took me by surprise I must say
When I found out yesterday
Don't you know that I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh I heard it through the grapevine
Oh I'm just about to lose my mind

Honey, honey yeah
I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine baby

I know a man ain't supposed to cry
But these tears I can't hold inside
Losin' you would end my life you see
'Cause you mean that much to me
You could have told me yourself
That you loved some one else
Instead I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine
And I'm just about to lose my mind

Honey, honey yeah
I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine, baby

People say believe half of what you see
Son and none of what you hear
But I can't help but be confused
If it's true please tell me dear
Do you plan to let me go
For the other guy you loved before?

Don't you know I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine, baby yeah
I heard it through the grapevine
Just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey, yeah
I heard it through the grapevine,
Not much longer would you be mine, baby yeah

Honey, honey, yeah
I heard it through the grapevine,
Not much longer would you be mine, baby yeah yeah
I heard it through the grapevine,
Not much longer would you be mine, baby yeah yeah
Track Name: Back to BLack
Back to Black
He left no time to regret
Kept his dick wet
With his same old safe bet
Me and my head high
And my tears dry
Get on without my guy

You went back to what you knew
So far removed from all that we went through
And I tread a troubled track
My odds are stacked
I'll go back to black

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to...

I go back to us

I love you much
It's not enough
You love blow and I love puff
And life is like a pipe
And I'm a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to...

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to...

Black, black, black, black, black, black, black,
I go back to...
I go back to...

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to...

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to black
Track Name: Boots are Made for Walking
Boots are Made for Walking
You keep saying you got something for me
Something you call love but confess
You've been a'messin' where you shouldn't 've been a'messin'
And now someone else is getting all your best
Well, these boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

You keep lyin' when you oughta be truthin'
You keep losing when you oughta not bet
You keep samin' when you oughta be a'changin'
What's right is right but you ain't been right yet
These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

You keep playing where you shouldn't be playing
And you keep thinking that you'll never get burnt (HAH)
Well, I've just found me a brand new box of matches (YEAH)
And what he knows you ain't had time to learn
These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

Over you, over you

Venus
A goddess on a mountain top
Was burning like a silver flame,
The summit of beauty and love,
And Venus was her name.
She's got it,
Yeah, baby, she's got it.
Well, I'm your Venus,
I'm your fire at your desire.
Well, I'm your Venus,
I'm your fire at your desire.
Her weapon were her crystal eyes
Making ev'ry man mad;
Black as a dark night she was,
Got what no one else had.
Wow!
She's got it,
Yeah, baby, she's got it.
Well, I'm your Venus,
I'm your fire at your desire.
Well, I'm your Venus,
I'm your fire at your desire.
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah!
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah!
She's got it,
Yeah, baby, she's got it.
Well, I'm your Venus,
I'm your fire at your desire.
Well, I'm your Venus,
I'm your fire at your desire.
