Mr Charisma

  • Streaming + Download

    Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

    After a string of electronic albums, for 2010 we dived back into our passion for the blues with a second, stronger collection of blues songs, including the fantastic singles "Green Tea" and "Scarlett O'Hara", the deeply heartfelt "No Strings" and the ornery petulance of "Come In Number One", and a series of instrumental jams.
    The full download includes several previously unreleased demo tracks from the Mr Charisma sessions, a quirky track previously published to Soundcloud followers (though thankfully a much shorter version of it this time), and 2015's blues-rock-jam session, "More E, Vicar?". Full artwork is also included.

With infectious and highly melodic tunes, The Quixotes specialize in songs about abject misery. Straddling multiple genres including electronica, indie- rock, 80's pop and blues.

Track Name: Jita Sunday Pilots
My god, you’re full of stars
I’m gonna drink dry them Jita bars
Cos outside is so deranged
I’m thinking that it’s all the rage
And here you let me wait it out
Stealing my heart, you freighted out

But I don’t hate you like I used to
I can’t be all on my own
My futures are afraid
And I fly away

(I came align on a Sunday)
I was too young to die
(I came align on a Sunday)
You left me here to die
(I came align on a Sunday)
My heart was built like a tank
(I came align on a Sunday)
But this was one big suicide gank

Undock my vanity
I’m done relive 4-4 profanity
You might say oh I’m loving this
But it’s like the black hole in your kiss
And here you let me wait it out
Stole my heart then you freighted out

But I don’t hate you like I used to
I can’t be all on my own
My futures are afraid
And I fly away

(I came align on a Sunday)
I was too young to die
(I came align on a Sunday)
You left me here to die
(I came align on a Sunday)
My heart was built like my tank
(I came align on a Sunday)
So this was one big suicide gank
Track Name: Green Tea
I listen to myself and all I can hear
Is salutations that you’re sore
You’re sayin’ nothing but you’re so outspoken
You look upset and now it hastens my fear
That love and hate is still a chore
You flow hot and cold and the boiler’s broken

She’s drinking green tea
It means she loves me
She’s drinking red wine
Oh she’s happy and fine
Here, have a glass of wine

You can’t imagine all strings I should pull
With your moods a-changin’ by the hour
All I can say is you can’t drag me down
I’m not upset and my wine cellar is full
For when all your apples have turned sour
Carafe it gently, then dive in and drown

She’s drinking green tea
It means she loves me, yeah
She’s drinking red wine
Then she’s happy and fine
Here, baby, come on, let’s have a glass of wine

Don’t ever underestimate
The power of grape
Infusions of revitillusion
You never know when you need a lift

She’s drinking green tea
It means she loves me, yeah
She’s drinking red wine
Oh she’s happy and fine
Here, baby, why you don’t have another glass of wine?

She’s drinking green tea
It means she loves me, yeah
She’s drinking green tea
She’s drinking red wine
Then we’s happy and fine
Here, baby, let’s have another a glass of wine

She’s drinking green tea
It means she loves me, yeah
Have a glass of wine
Try a glass of wine
Track Name: Scarlett O'Hara
I won’t be angry, I won’t fight
I won’t rebel, I will be good
I’ll stay out of sight
I’ll enter the priesthood
She drives me to drink
But frankly, my dear, I don’t give a shit

She wants to be like Scarlett O’Hara
I can’t go my whole life waiting to catch you
She wants to be like Scarlett O’Hara
I can’t go my whole life waiting to catch you
My love

I’m turning the page, got to get down and pray
Tomorrow’s another day I’m gonna quit
I run like a monk, I keep kicking the habit
It drives me to drink
But frankly, my dear, I don’t give a shit

She wants to be like—
No man is the safe, all the trouble, all the strife
She wants to be like—
Well now, she can be someone else’s wife

She wants to be like Scarlett O’Hara
I can’t go my whole life waiting to catch you
She wants to be like Scarlett O’Hara
I can’t go my whole life waiting to catch you
My love

Well I won’t be angry, I won’t fight
I won’t rebel, I will be good
I’ll stay out of sight
I’ll enter the priesthood
She drives me to drink
But frankly, my dear, I don’t give a shit

She wants to be like Scarlett O’Hara
I can’t go my whole life waiting to catch you
She wants to be like Scarlett O’Hara
I can’t go my whole life waiting to catch you
My love
Track Name: No Strings
Don’t mistake me for love,
Honey
I’m still leaving in the morning
No strings attached
With all the fun we had
You should be grateful

You shouldn’t play with scissors
I’m no puppet on a string
You cry when I’m laughing
You talk when I sing
Please stop your violins
No strings
No strings

Well, I don’t cut no slack
You see it’s just a fling
I’ve given you enough rope
With all the sways I swing
It’s to my heart you cling
No strings
No strings

No strings

It’s not broken
But it’s damaged beyond repair
Such fragile dreams
And I don’t need you there
I’m sorry life’s unfair
It’s not that I don’t care
I cannot lie
Too many questions why

So don’t mistake me for love,
Honey
I’m still leaving in the morning
No strings attached
With all the fun we had
You should be happy

You should be happy
Why aren’t you happy?
No strings
Mistakin’ me for love!
No strings
No strings
Track Name: Come in Number One
Come in, number one, now your time is up
We’ll miss the boat, while you alone elope
The ides of these tides
Let’s go over the side
I’ve been in the sun too long
Did you ever notice something wrong

Your blood is cold
And your eyes are shot
Keep firing that bullet into my feet again

Come in, number one, it’s only a plastic gun
Come in, number one, it’s only a plastic gun
Come in, number one
Come in, number one, your time is up

Once more around the island
Twice more to skirt around the issue
Again for the comedy value alone
And to make sure we’s all dizzy
I was alright last time I checked
Then I turn a’port and the spirit’s decked
So I drown in your moonshine
Somewhere o’er the stateline
Where it’s a crime to be scuppered
When the stakes are always peppered
So I’ll stay as long as I like
Yeah, I’ll stay as long as I like
You’ll have to dive in and get me
Come on, dive in and get me
The waters’ lovely, yeah
If I’m to fall in love on a whim
I should have learned to swim

Come in, number one, your time is up
Come in, number one, was only a plastic gun

Come in, number one
Come in, number one
Come in, number one
Your time is up
Your time is up
Your time is up

If I am to fall in love on a whim
I should have learned to swim

Your time is up
Your time

/sigh
