Harry Harrison Well Melbourne; what’s going on? How can one town have so many good bands? And the first outing from King Stag is no exception. From the stampeding ‘You Keep Me Coming Back’ to the thumping ‘Count of G’, I can hear indie genre influences from the 70ies through to the new millennium. It may not be the Stoner Rock fare that I normally feast on, but it’s definitely a table I’d eat at again. Would love to see these guys live and am looking forward to future releases. Go the might Stag! Favorite track: Mountain Queen.

Track Name: You Keep Me Coming Back
I've got a rule
That's what keeps me cool
If I'm honest here, I want to see ya
Laid out nice and sweet, upon my bed sheets

Chorus:
There's something about ya
I just can't get over
There's something about ya
It keeps me coming back

I'd bring flowers to your door if it got me more
But you're hard to please and girl you're such a tease
Just like a golden snitch you know how to evade
And make all the other girls evacuate

Chorus:
There's something about ya
I just can't get over
There's something about ya
It keeps me coming back
Track Name: Count of G
The Count of G
The darkest of all mystery
Sleek and black
We know it all but the knowledge we lack

Chorus:
Doesn't even make a sound
Wears robes with a thorny crown
No need to cover your ground
Because the Count of G is all around

Chorus:
Doesn't even make a sound
Wears robes with a thorny crown
No need to cover your ground
Because the Count of G is all around

Tucked away from prying eyes
Consumed by a web of lies
Rumours built to sever the joint
Like a tumour at its breaking point

Chorus:
Doesn't even make a sound
Wears robes with a thorny crown
No need to cover your ground
Because the Count of G is all around

A sound distant at first
But clear like a dying thirst
The footsteps of a man
Who can only be cursed

Chorus:
Doesn't even make a sound
Wears robes with a thorny crown
No need to cover your ground
Because the Count of G is all around
Track Name: Mountain Queen
Strong on the outside but weak down below
Afraid to lose it where all feelings go

You gotta keep, keep holding on
You gotta keep it, don't let it stop

Pulling me in but letting me go
Don't know if you mean it don't know if you know

You gotta keep, keep holding on
You gotta keep it, don't let it stop

If you could reach me, then maybe I'd stay
Cause these thick walls, They're made out of hay

You gotta keep, keep holding on
You gotta keep it, don't let it stop

Breaking the walls and I'm singing, what am I to do, it was you
Track Name: Getting Harder (To Hold On)
I didn't want it to end
But I had no other choice
Watching you hurt me
I needed to raise my voice
But the black clouds rolled in
And the winds began to howl

They say the fire it burns
It burns through everything in sight
They say the regrowth
Sets everything right
But it it's getting harder
To see everything in a new light

It's getting hot in here and it's not cause you're in the room
The balance it slowly fades and the room begins to skew
It's getting harder
To keep holding on

Don't lock the door cause you're free to leave anytime
But I bet you won't because the atmospheres really fine
It's getting harder
To keep holding on

It's getting harder, harder everyday
It's getting harder, harder I can't pray
