about

The Discarded
The Discarded hail from a small town just north of Toronto, Canada called Orangeville. They are comprised of seventeen year old drummer, Caden Jax, twenty year old, Jared Dean on bass and veteran punk rocker J.P. on guitar and vocals. Yeah they’re all related but this isn’t any Partridge family reunion. They are a tight, hard rocking unit that draws upon their shared history to create original punk inspired Rock and Roll

In fact after just three years together they’ve released 36 original songs, three full albums and one EP: 2017’s self-titled release, 2018’s “Manifesto”, March 2019‘s Act 1, five song EP -“Not from this Town” and now finishing out 2019 with this November release, the twelve song release entitled “Sound Check and Fury”(act 2 &3). This completes the 17 tracks of music they recorded with Ian Blurton last year.

This new LP comes your way with twelve new original tunes that spans the gauntlet of punk, power pop punk, surf, and rock and roll. It finishes the story introduced in the March released act 1 called “Not from this Town, with act 2: Life in a van and Act 3: Looking forward to accompany the text of the written for the play “Sound Check and Fury”.

Act 2 takes you through life on the road with such tunes as “24 hours”, “Music whores”, and “My baby is a go-go girl”. With act 3 lamenting the state of music today with “A bit too heavy”, “Has been never was” and “Looking Forward”.

The Discarded don’t plan to let up any time soon with a full slate of live shows and already back in the studio recording their next full length album.

Track Name: 24 Hours
24 hours
Twenty four hours, I live in a van,
Next destination according to plan
Crack in the windshield, snow up ahead,
Just hit the mountains don’t want to be dead

Chorus:
Don’t you be laughing when I’m walking out the door
Pretty soon you’ll be crying when you realize I won’t be coming back no more

Twenty four hours, just sleep in a van
What’s there to know now, “yeah we’re the band”
Hot on the prairies, forty below
Just hit the mountains, starting to snow

Chorus

Twenty four hours, I live in a van,
Next destination according to plan
Crack in the windshield, snow up ahead,
Just hit the mountains don’t want to be dead

Chorus

Twenty four hours, just sleep in a van
What’s there to know now, “yeah we’re the band”
Hot on the prairies, forty below
Just hit the mountains, starting to snow

Chorus

Twenty four hours, I live in a van,
Next destination according to plan
Crack in the windshield, snow up ahead,
Just hit the mountains don’t want to be dead

Chorus
Track Name: Pot Stinks
Pot Stinks
I smell pot I think it stinks,
I’m anti-drugs but I still drink
My alcohol with aspertaine,
I take a pill when I feel pain

We need it all, we need the lot,
But you’ll go to hell if you smoke pot

From dexidrim to valium,
little pills for my ho-hums
From pick me ups to pain relievers
for my colds perhaps slight fevers

We need it all, we need the lot,
But you’ll go to hell if you smoke pot

Up on a soap box in an endless charade
Two million dollars more for a just say no parade
Martini lunch to discuss the solution
More money against drug but none for pollution

We need it all, we need the lot,
But you’ll go to hell if you smoke pot

My cigarettes cause heart attacks
The city ghettos are still full of rats
Cop shot a black man caused quite a commotion
Suspected drug dealer gave the cop a promotion
Track Name: Music Whores
Music whores

I'm a cool cat
I know where it's at
Rockin rhythm kings
We'll make your ears ring

Now I'm telling you the score
We are all just music whores

Making music, making money
Selling merch, what’s so funny?
Rockin band, rockin show
Love to talk but gotta go
Towel down my sweaty choad
Load the van and hit the road
Grab a bite and forty winks
Crank the windows something stinks
Destination up ahead
Keep on playing until we're dead
Making music, making money
Selling merch, what’s so funny?

Now I'm telling you the score
We are all just music whores

Music whores, music whores
Track Name: Expectations
Expectations
The jacket’s made to order
But now it fits too tight
All the boundaries have become boarders
That I’ll try and cross tonight

A certain set of givens,
A rigid code you accept
The light shines harshly on my features
As I toy with what you expect

But who am I, to patronize
Who am I to criticize?
I should have delivered instead I neglect
Limits are safe and always should be met

A certain set of givens,
A rigid code you accept
The light shines harshly on my features
As I toy with what you expect
Track Name: My Baby Is A Go-Go Girl
My baby is a go-go girl
My baby is a go-go girl,
Jet black hair and a flip and a curl
She likes to dance, she never stops,
She invented the Blitzkeg bop

One thing for sure, I love her a lot, in her go-go boots, she’s really hot
My baby is a go-go girl 4X

Meet her at the discotheque on a Saturday night,
In her vinyl mini she was quite a sight
Up in her cage she caught my eye
Shakin’ to the music, goddess in the sky

One thing for sure, I love her a lot, in her go-go boots, she’s really hot
My baby is a go-go girl 4X

Bridge:
Thick mascara and black eyeliner, that’s when I knew it had to be her
Caught her on her break and she bought me a drink
She blew me a kiss, she gave me a wink

My baby is a go-go girl,
Jet black hair and a flip and a curl
She likes to dance, she never stops,
She invented the Blitzkeg bop

One thing for sure, I love her a lot, in her go-go boots, she’s really hot
My baby is a go-go girl 4X
Track Name: I'm Addicted To Her
I’m addicted to her

I’m addicted to her- and her womanly charms
I’m addicted to her- I want her in my arms
I’m addicted to her- this much I’m sure
I’m addicted to her- I hope there is no cure

Energy is all I need- And her love on which I feed
Got these feeling that I cannot quell- I’m in me deep you know I’m under her spell
Oxytocin, endorphin hit- I’m in deep you know I cannot quit
Power surge going straight to my brain- Can’t think straight, you know I’m going insane

Cause- I’m addicted to her
I’m addicted to her
I’m addicted to her
I’m addicted to her

I’m addicted to her- call it heavenly bliss
I’m addicted to her- started with a kiss
I’m addicted to her- yeah she’s my drug
I’m addicted to her- I absorb it through hugs

Chorus

I’m addicted to her- and her sweet caress
I’m addicted to her- you know she’s simply the best
I’m addicted to her- I need her to stay
I’m addicted to her- please don’t go away

Chorus
Track Name: A Bit Too Heavy
Bit too heavy
(for the Mainstream)
Trade your coffee for some tea
Settle into mediocrity
I shouldn’t bite the hand that feeds
I wouldn’t like where that leads

Just a bit too heavy for the mainstream
Just a bit too heavy for the mainstream
(dig this)
Guitar music is on the way out
Does the singer have to shout?
Did I upset your inner peace?
When’s this racket going to cease

Just a bit too heavy for the mainstream
Just a bit too heavy for the mainstream
(check it)
Hey programmer will you decide
If you’ll play my latest side
Because it’s all starting to sound all the same
And the music you play is so fucking lame

Just a bit too heavy for the mainstream
Just a bit too heavy for the mainstream
Track Name: Silver Spoon
Silver Spoon

Born with a silver spoon, if it ended all too soon
Now you’ll have to fend for yourself
The real world much too scary, for one with little daring
Guess you’ll have to find yourself a job

You never had to suffer, mom and dad where your buffer
Now things are getting hard, without those credit cards

Born with a silver spoon, if it ended all too soon
Now you’ll have to fend for yourself
The real world much too scary, with one with little daring
Guess you’ll have to find yourself a job
Silver spoon- silver 2x

Rich kid, rich kid, rich kid, rich kid what’d say?
Live your life hope your parents pay
Rich kid, rich kid, rich kid, rich kid, what’d do?
Hope mom and dad never tire of you

You never had to suffer, (silver)
Mom and dad where your buffer (Silver)
Now things would get real hard (silver), without those credit cards (silver)
You never had to suffer, mom and dad where your buffer
Now things would get real hard, without those credit cards
You never had to suffer, (silver)
Mom and dad where your buffer (Silver)
Now things would get real hard (silver), without the credit cards (silver)
Silver spoon- Silver
Track Name: Up Is Down
Down is up
Chorus:
Up is down, down is up - you know
Down is up, up is down- so it goes
Up is down, down is up- does it show?
Down is up , up is down - I feel low

Feeling down, you hope it's fleeting
You're alive your heart is beating
The destiny that you're not meeting
It's dangerous the death you're cheating

Chorus

So get up and earn your daily bread
You must take stock in what is said
About your life and where it's led
To be successful is what you’re fed

Chorus

Now's the time to take the lead
Forget the wants there's only needs
They only treat the wounds that bleed
And celebrate that which succeeds

Chorus

Mommy bailed left you alone
Daddy died left you his home
Now up is down and down is up
How'd it all get so fucked up?
Track Name: Has Been/ Never Was
Has been never was
You know there comes a time when finally I must decide
Seems you never found your place and soon you’ll fade without a trace
A has been / a never was you’ll never make it just because
You know it’s all the same, you’ll never make in a young man’s game

And still I continued on, trying to write your next hit song
And all those hits that be we’ll they never seemed to happen for me
A has been / a never was you’ll never make it just because
You know it’s all the same, you’ll never make in a young man’s game

Sometimes, I wonder, I wonder-why it has to be, all this negativity
Sometimes, I wonder, I wonder-if it’s a product of our minds
Can’t we leave it all behind?

Well now I face my final curtain of this I only can be certain
And if I fade without a trace would that be such a big disgrace
It doesn’t matter if the song it grooved all that matters is the unit moved
The hype machine continues on with little regard for music or song

All these things I say are true but I don’t care since I found you
And come what may, it may be true, but I don’t care since I have you
Track Name: Mile In Their Shoes
Miles in their shoes

He’s a lazy slob without a job
Never gets out of bed
He’s on the dole, living in this hole
But he’d rather complain instead

She’s a daddy’s girl, a spoiled brat
Seen all the world and more
But she’s in touch with her common side
But she’ll never do the chores

Chorus:
You should walk a mile in their shoes
You should try the things that they do
You should live a year of their days
You should hear the things that they say

He has inspiration but lacks motivations
All the days they seem to blur
This rock and roll nation has led to stagnation
As no one could mature

She’s a negative girl who’s done it all
But can’t find were she fits
Her dad has paid for several schools
But she’s rather nightclub it

Chorus:

She sees trouble up ahead and on him she shouldn’t be depending

He sees the future bight and clear and understands there is some trouble pending

She thinks he’s hit the nail on the head and this relationship soon will be ending

They know it’s happening right now but he doesn’t like the opinion that she’s lending

Chorus
Track Name: Looking Forward
Looking forward
As I check out from this alienation
Start moving forward from this stagnation
Letting go of all my aggravation
I looking forward with much anticipation

As I latch onto this ray of hope
Start climbing up from the end of my rope
I’ll put that horse before the cart
And getting over you is where I’ll start
Chorus:
Because when it all comes together it comes together here
When I start looking forward is all becomes quite clear
When it all comes together it comes together here
When start looking forward the sadness turns to cheer

I’ll start looking out by looking in
Seeing where I’m going instead of where I’ve been
Going to start some winning instead of losing
And create a world of my own choosing
Chorus-
First I had to visualize in order for me to realize
I’m better off with you gone, deep down I knew that all along
First I had to visualize in order for me to realize
I’m better off with you gone, deep down I knew that all along
Chorus
First I had to visualize in order for me to realize
I’m better off with you gone, deep down I knew that all along
First I had to visualize in order for me to realize
I’m better off with you gone, deep down I knew that all along

As I check out from this alienation
Start moving forward from this stagnation
Letting go of all my aggravation
I looking forward with much anticipation
