  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    This "real deal" physical album comes from a lover of art who has decorated the music therein. The art featured in the Brothington Album Booklet is a unique accompaniment to the album and was conceived, designed and created by the musician (Kyle Brothers). The 12 page booklet, clear jewel case, inserts, and semi gloss disc face embody the fruits of a labour of love, in photos, slick digital art and complete lyrics, so you can sing along and ponder the inner workings of this dually, mad artist/musician.

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

I finished writing this song in 1996 whilst living in Dubbo NSW.

lyrics

3. P E O P L E A S A N T S
I hear an earth rumbling sound And I know just what I got to do yeah I sit on the ant hill and wait for my grub Thinking of cycles uncanned Now rain flows to rivers coursing down to the sea While we all trickle back to the city Where we trudge around with a ton on our backs Anti gravity at our command And that’s why People as ants Chorus: I Hear an earth rumbling sound And I know just what I got to do yeah Don’t let the people all down Is all you got to know just what to do yeah Save all the people from drowning Is all you got to know just what to do yeah Keep your four wheels firm to ground Antenna raised for all the world to see yeah So take out your flimpets your scaps and your glub Celebrate the strand on the land We’re building a reservoir big as the sea A sea of our arms and our legs And that’s why People as ants (Repeat Chorus) Now I’m going back to the nest Oh the nest is blessed Oh bless this nest If you please The pyramids weren’t blessed By celestial flesh They were made by you and me All dotted in the sand Toiling hand over hand In sychronicity Couldn’t believe What we achieved All for the peace of our kings and our queens Sweating in teams Splitting the seams (And you laughed And you smiled at me
say farewell) x2 (And you laughed And you smiled at me in saying farewell) x2

about

Kyle Brothers Bungendore, Australia

I am an musician, artist and a teacher, specialising in teaching children to play guitar. I am based near Canberra, ACT, Australia and this is my debut release. At 17 I learned to play, becoming a songwriter when practice eventually became exploration. My music fits mostly within the Folk genre with many influences. I hope that there will be many more albums to follow as I'm writing all the time. ... more
