about

The Hops Party Jicin, Czech Republic

The two of us - that's the band. We like simple, noisy rock'n'roll, cranked fuzz pedals and a lot of beer. Beer's the main topic of most of the songs. The rest is pretty much about how hard we suck on surf. Feel free to download our first record. Cheers. ... more

Track Name: Loose sweater
The end of the week
Coming back home, thrilled to see my girl again
As it's getting dark, as it's raining lightly
There's the last train leaving without me

Hold on! Wait for me! Ok don't - go brew yourself!
Bro, can you pick me up?
Oh, you're drunk right now?
Well, good for you but I need to get my ass home

On Friday night give me a friend sober enough to drive
It doesn't have to be a friend, just someone sober enough to drive

Walking down the road
Waving at strangers to give me a ride
Would you help a guy with a loose sweater and rapist glasses
'cause it's me - still waiting outside

Hey you! Pull over! Ok don't - go brew yourself
Nobody to pick me up - they're all drunk by now
Which leaves me here - sober in the dark

On Friday night give me a friend sober enough to drive
It doesn't have to be a friend, just someone sober enough to drive
Track Name: Survival
This year I am on a mission
I'm 2 and I¨m supposed to survive
A musician of this age is an endangered kind

I hope that I won't die today
I hope that I'll be ok
Few more days and the curse will be broken

I'm imagining things that could kill me
I don't do heroin, I don't have a gun
Can I overdose on beer?
Giving it a shot sounds like fun

I hope that I won't die today
I hope that I'll be ok
Few more days and the curse will be broken

This year I am on a mission
I'm 27 and I'm supposed to not die

I hope that I won't die today
I hope that I'll be ok
This life is worth living baby
Not going anywhere no way
At least fifty more years of beer
Before I eternally disappear
Few more days and the curse will be broken
Track Name: Dear Anna
You told me to write you a letter with reasons why I'd like to marry you
But I thought It wouldn't be me if I didn't do it a bit differently
Instead I'm writing you a song as a message that cannot be lost
That cannot be stolen
'cause no one but me will ever get that deep into your heart

This time there's no place for doubt
This time I'm certain
I know that our love has always been true

Forever and ever, Anna, I want you by my side
I've known it since I was a boy, I've known it deep inside my heart
Now it's easy to decide when we are shining as groom and bride
Let's promise each other we will never part

For me it's unusual to write anything serious but this time it feels so natural
I'm just greatful that I've met you so young
And I'm greatful that I almost instantly knew, knew that you're the one
It must be something in your eyes or in your smile that gives me faith
That everything is allright in my life
I want to be the guy who's always there to hold you closely
And as much as you love falling asleep next to me I love waking up next to you

Forever and ever, Anna, I want you by my side
I've known it since I was a boy, I've known it deep inside my heart
Now it's easy to decide when we are shining as groom and bride
Let's promise each other we will never part
We will always party
Track Name: One by one
He’s a man, he’s got a family and a house
The house is loaded with empty beer bottles
For two years straight he's kept his glass

I’m talking thousands, he keeps bringing more
There’s not enough cases in the store
It’s too late for him, no lessons to learn
He reached the point of no return

Dear husband I want you to know
Either your bottles will go, or I’ll go
You have one day – then I’ll take our kids away

He doesn't drive he drinks and carries bottles in a bag
Returning them one-by-one will break his back
If he starts now, if he makes it quick
He may finish by the end of next week

Show some charity, bring your crew
Go find this man, next time it could be you
Stop this madness, save his family
Leave now, he needs help immediately
Track Name: Brew it yourself
One day a little angel whispered in my ear
That we should start a war on mass-produced beer
Because

We are eurolagersceptical
The taste is poor but still identical
Was it brewed in Netherlands, Poland or Germany?
I can't tell, they're all the same
If you want a decent beer you'd better brew it yourself

The other day a little devil whispered in my ear
With a rebel yell I should break your beer
Because

We are eurolagersceptical
The taste is poor but still identical
Was it brewed in Netherlands, Poland or Germany?
I can't tell, they're all the same
If you want a decent beer you'd better brew it yourself
Track Name: Tiny dancer (Elton John cover)
Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you'll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

Jesus freaks out in the street
Handing tickets out for God
Turning back she just laughs
The boulevard is not that bad

Piano man he makes his stand
In the auditorium
Looking on she sings the songs
The words she knows the tune she hums

But oh how it feels so real
Lying here with no one near
Only you and you can hear me
When I say softly slowly

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today
