Biografia

The Snake Corps came together in 1984 following the break-up of Sad Lovers & Giants (SL&G) the previous year.
Aiming for a harder-edged sound, core members Tristan Garel-Funk and Nigel Pollard advertised in the Melody Maker for the necessary musicians. After many auditions they settled on Marc Lewis and Liam McGuinness on vocals and bass respectively. This original incarnation set about establishing its own sound - recording demos of songs later to appear on the band’s albums as well as a video of Look East for Eden at Kingston Poly where Marc was a student.

After some initial success building a local following and reconnecting with many of the fans of SL&G, Nigel left the band and was replaced by Jon Greville from the extreme hardcore three-piece Rudimentary Peni. This line up went into record the first album: Flesh on Flesh, released on Midnight Music.
Tours in europe helped to build and consolidate the band’s following, but at home the story was one of press and radio indifference.

Feeling a need to broaden the scope of the Snake Corps sound the band decided to add keyboards. This resulted in the return of school friend and SL&G founder member David Wood. With the addition of Jim Blanchard from label-mates The S-Haters replacing Liam on bass guitar, this line-up recorded the band’s second album Smother Earth.
More gigs followed but UK recognition continued to elude the Snake Corps despite growing interest from around the world; the bulk of the band’s record sales going overseas.

David Wood eventually quit the band and Ian Gibson (recently having left the Mk2 version of SL&G) replaced him on keyboards.

    Very good band. In Flux, Science That Kills and Victory Parade are examples of those few songs that always play randomly on my mind, even unconsciously I may say.

    ah well I finally got the lyrics. Straight from Marc Lewis e-mail )) sharing it with you. Fireflies "Who left your feelings in the cold and let them die Hide a saving grace in a secret place Now all the reasons in the world wont tell you why Mountains turn the sand when we’re holding hands Fireflies within your eyes Make the world seem colder When will the darkness fade away so you can shine? Find a helping hand take it while you can Don’t search for truth again your heart will never lie Pleasure after pain in sweet love again Fireflies within your eyes Make the world seem colder So much older So much harder to fan the flames And the fireflies Break Fireflies within your eyes Make the world seem colder So much older So much harder to fan the flames And the fireflies And the fireflies ah ah etc"

    Guys, help me please to find lyrics for "Fireflies" from album "3rd Cup". A very nice song I really want to make cover of, but unfortunately the band is not well-known.
