about

Twobitsville originally an album of 8 songs then for an infinitesimal moment 2 EP's of 4 songs is today proudly and officially an Album of 8 songs.

Twobitsville is available for download online... just follow the links, or for those who still got the time to appreciate a bit of detail in their music, you can buy a CD. This album is a look inside the bleak and decaying world of someone livin' on planet earth post 2000 - it could be your reality, but fortunately for us it's the world of Steve BLaque*. Far from being critical, this collection of songs is merely a reflection of the unique and strangely seductive world that is BLaque's.

Twobitsville ain't Hollywood, there's no happy ending, Steve BLaque* offers no answers to any of the riddles or problems posed by today's society in his lyrics; it is 'the facts, nothin' but the facts - as he sees them. In a world of pain and uncertaintly it's good to know that there's someone like BLaque* out there... he's the guy your mother was referring to when she told you to be tnakful for the life you got 'cos "there's always someone worse off than you are". He ain't no hero, just a lost confused and bewildered soul who can shred a room with his guitar and make you question your own self worth.

He is BLaque*.

The album was recorded in two starkly divergent environments: in Melbourne Australia @ Plutonic Lab and the other in Beijing PRC @ Forbidden City Studios and was recorded between December 2013 and August 2014.

Take a listen. It won't change yer life, but it might just make you feel a whole lot better about who you are.

released August 2, 2014

We've put credits on the original artwork but for now just a credit towards Coriders, a performing artist out of Melbourne Australia for his ongoing support in the years leading up to this album.. A shout out to The Repromasters, one o' the greatest bands who never got off the ground and also to Kaladonia Cairnz for her belief in the Twobitsville myth.

Track Name: All Alone
All Alone
Steve BLaque

no one knows
no one cares
no one sees no one feels
no one wants to touch the pain
that i've gotta get through
i'm all alone
i'm all alone


and why should i care
i'd do the same
all those words just hyperboleno one wants to touch the pain
that i've gotta get through
i'm all alone
i'm all alone

chorus

I cry for what is happening
but no one sees the tears
i'm alone now in this world
and i'm alone alone
i'm all alone
i'm alone, i'm alone i'm all alone

verse

did i say too much
give it all away
was i the boy cryin' wolf
no one wants to touch the pain
that i've gotta get through
i'm all alone
i'm all alone

middle 8
i'm all alone no one wants to know
a prisoner here in this misery show
head buried into my hands
the tears fall
no one understands
i'm all alone
i'm all alone
i'm all alone

chorus

I cry for what is happening
but no one sees the tears
i'm alone now in this world
and i'm alone alone
i'm all alone
i'm alone, i'm alone i'm all alone
