about

"All My Favourite Bands are Dead!" is the first album by MisterNothing which was released on 1st January 2014 via CDBaby and is available from Itunes, Amazon and Google Play.

Before the band was formed, musician Mitchel Emms wrote and recorded an entire album by himself from his bedroom in 2012, as a homage to all his favourite bands and influences. Shortly afterwards, he ended up on BBC1's The Voice UK, leaving the album on the back burner until months after his TV stint. Mixed and mastered by John Wilcox who would later become guitarist for MisterNothing, the album is now finally available.

Alt rock with melody, emotion and the desire to be different.
Give it a chance. You might enjoy it.

"All My Favourite Bands Are Dead, is well... stupendously awesome!"
Born Music Online - 5/5

"It's really hard to believe that such a stunning release was made in a 20 year old's bedroom... for MisterNothing, 2014 is set to be even bigger."
Hit The Floor Magazine - 8/10

Track Name: Losing Game
Bleary eyes, smeared with Make up,
All Black and Red,
Oops, here we go again x2
The same old stage,
and i'm here to pretend i'm good,
I'm a seal for Mrs Promises.
She's got her big bucket list paid by me.
I got a flicker of white shining down on me,
a spotlight that i shouldn't feel bad to see,
but it's not what you know,
It is who you know,
in the dark again.

Running around,
I'm pitching this dead horse at you,
Come on look,
This is a losing Game,
This is a losing game.
But I'm the one to blame.

In the dark again,
Wont you take me back? (Oh, Take me back)
To the Lights, To the Highs,
Where shooting stars are who they are.
Will I find me again,
will you raise me up, (Oh, raise me up)
Will the lies come out to show?
or this is a losing game?

We're all fucked up,
It's stamped its name on everything,
but Oops, here we go again,
Drink & Joints, they bring a cloud to rain on me.
And if that weren't enough,
It's a crime to make mistakes,
to the ones who are to blame
but they're okay.
I got a flicker of the red light shining on me,
I'm on the list of those they dont want to see,
This is a losing game,
Boom! Headshot! In the dark again.

In the dark again,
Wont you take me back? (Oh, Take me back)
To the Lights, To the Highs,
Where shooting stars are who they are.
Will I find me again,
will you raise me up, (Oh, raise me up)
Will the lies come out to show?
or this is a losing game?

I wont lie. You can't change my mind.
You Know I can't stay. I wont hold on just that little longer.
Track Name: Steady On
Jenny never has time for anyone.
She's got to work all day just to get along.
Filing her paperwork as fast as she can,
Going through life without a loving man.
12 hour shifts are more than she can stand,
but Love is something that a working world can never understand.

Jenny's got a fast pace, Steady On, Steady On.

Jenny feels like there's no love for her,
Jenny feels like a slave to the world.
The work is never ending,
and so is her loneliness.
Without a man she can love,
life is meaningless.
Track Name: An Allusion To Everything
I think I've found love but it's not the same as it used to be.
I used to be curious but now I find no fun in mystery.

They say i'm too hard on myself, but i'm not giving into a cop out quote.
I always wanted to be part of something but always just a tag along.
If it's just indifference to your difference then I can worry less.
I'll disappear, reappear, disappear, until i'm missed.

If I stick with this, maybe i'll last a little bit longer.
If I fall too deep, then maybe I wont get up again.
I need some rest from the relentless part of loving you,
If I stay too long, then my heart will be fucked and burnt.

I think I've found love, but it's not the same as it used to be.
Like 2012 chronic I'm flying to mars and not coming back.
I haven't grown up, but I'm not the same as I used to be.
Just more Instability to my abilities, letting love take the wheel.

I can't say the word "love" without feeling so cliche,
and now saying cliche is more cliche than ever before.
Digression is a way to keep things from getting worse.
But I guess it's what she does to me,
I don't know if i'm out of my head, or even care?

If I stick with this, maybe i'll last a little bit longer.
If I fall too deep, then maybe I wont get up again.
I need some rest from the relentless part of loving you,
If I stay too long, I will be fucked and burnt.

(Chorus)
Like she did, like she did, like she did to me.
Put me on top, put me on top to let me down again.
You're not the same, you're not the same,
I keep on telling myself.
But I'm old enough to tell the difference now.
I think i've found love, but not found it in myself.

I think i've found love, but not myself.
Track Name: Dear Happiness
Standing by the tree that I used to hang on,
branching into me, a leaf for every day.
Hiding in a store is a voice I keep hearing
shouting "wear me now, become the boy that you wanted to be"
I'm tired of the signs that tell me how I should focus,
I'm waiting on a dream that never leaves my sleep,
Self indulgent phases leave something to desire for,
so will you let me know when you return again?

In the dark I am lonely,
stick on my favorite 90's records,
I've got the bends again.
I know the time's gone but can I accept this?
Will you let me know when the time is right for me?

(Chorus)
So ready to believe that I could hold my anger,
So ready to believe that I could stand so tall,
You lead me to believe that I could my frustration,
so will you let me know, let me know when you return again?
Dear Happiness.

So sick of all the homophobic shit I keep seeing,
Religion aint a part of me so dont shove it down my throat.
Maybe I'm too blunt to get decent attention,
when you're letting all the puppet masters
cash in their checks at others' expense.
I dont think I've got anything else to say
but the fact you're fucking up the system,
you re-wire my brain.
I'm not gonna ask for help this time.
I'm not drunk enough to say it all,
I'm not high enough to let it go,
but I wont sit back and go to sleep.

(You think it's funny when I say it like that)

(Chorus)

(Breakdown)

So ready to believe that I could hold my anger,
So ready to believe that I could be so good.
You lead me to believe that I could hold my frustrations,
so will you let me know when you return again...

I don't think that I can stand it anymore,
You've got this burning at my door,
for what I've got, I'm sincerely wasted.
The lives of fools kick you in the face,
when you turn your back on disgrace.

WIll you let me know when you return again,
Dear Happiness.
Track Name: Fighter Plane
I know, I know just what you did to me,
I know, I know just what you said to me,
I know, I know just why you hated me,
I know, I know why you gave this fate to me.

I'm like an aeroplane,
coming in like a fighter plane,
I'm dropping the bombs,
until you are gone, away.

I know all your thoughts and fears,
and now I'm complete.
Your shots they fire through me,
I was ejected into the sky,
and fell into the deep blue sea.

You don't know what it's like
to feel no ones on your side.
I was fed to the sharks,
and stripped to the bone.

(Chorus)
I never thought I'd drown (but I'm still standing)
I sank like a stone (but now I'm commanding)
I've escaped from the dark (now my light's shining)
and now I'm flying away (coming at you like a fighter plane)

I know, I know just what you did to me,
I know, I know just what you said to me,
I know, I know just why you hated me,
I know, I know why you gave this fate to me.
(I was fed to the sharks and stripped to the bone)

(Chorus)
I never thought I'd drown (but I'm still standing)
I sank like a stone (but now I'm commanding)
I've escaped from the dark (now my light's shining)
and now I'm flying away (coming at you like a fighter plane)
Track Name: Fly To Mars
I close my eyes to dream,
I try and restitch the seams,
to pull myself together.
Cause time aint cheap these days,
but money can be replaced;
although i've spent my cash in every broken place.

I sit and watch the stars,
I get bored and fly to mars,
but when I come home I'll hit the ground,
and my fall wont make a sound.
But you and I should know,
that it's time to let things go,
like the gravity that keeps me down.

If there was a way to let it go,
To say that I'm sorry for the things I've done.
You and I, will be better off this time,
If only I could let it go.

I'm running out of thoughts,
so turn the page or close the door,
but If you do the latter let the sun shine through a little bit.
You'd put a smile back on my face,
if you'd throw away my name,
but hold my hand and dont ever go away.

I sit and watch the stars,
I get bored and fly to mars,
but when I come home I'll hit the ground,
and my fall wont make a sound.
But you and I should know,
that the spaceship has to go,
to let the sun shine back into my life.

If there was a way to let it go,
To say that I'm sorry for the things I've done.
You and I, will be better off this time,
If only I could let it go.

My love, please dont stand aside,
until I'm old enough to realize,
I've been living a lie behind my own eyes,
when all I wanted was to fly so high.
Track Name: Deception
Deception, behind my back.
I'm getting ready for an attack,
gotta put up the walls
cause shots are firing soon.
Deception, please give me a break,
I've had just about all I can take.
So many faces, so many lies,
can't you give me an honest girl or guy?
So much for love, so much for friends,
who never follow through on their amends
so in goes the knife, defenses down.
I wish I had the money to escape this town.

So there you are, and I am here,
Waving goodbye. Deceptions ready to die.
There you are, and I am here,
Questioning why I'm here tonight.
To tell you how I've been down and out?
cause it's times like these when I have
to free my mind.

Deception split my heart in two,
I'm not the same person as I was in youth,
I'm a heartless junkie, Ignorant of the truth.
Deception keeps me up for a fight,
now an honest person walks into my life.
Can your solitude help me divorce this strife?

So there you are, and I am here,
Waving goodbye. Deceptions ready to die.
There you are, and I am here,
Questioning why I'm here tonight.
To tell you how I've been down and out?
Well, I'ts only times like these when I
meet someone like you.

Won't you free my mind?
Track Name: Paralyzed
Don't say a word,
and keep it all inside,
you can't let anybody know,
yet you act like a maniac,
with speed to go,
searching for next line on the mirror,
bloodshot eyes with a finger on the trigger,
You got a rifle in your mind,
with no bead on reality,
cancer in your sanity.

You're paralyzed, (you're paralyzed)
You're paralyzed, (you're paralyzed)
You're Paralyzed,
the light at the end of the tunnel,
is never what it seems.

You feel the burn,
of addiction flowing in,
you can't let the pain show,
yet your eyes tell a different tale,
you can't let it go.
you're in love with the feeling when it eats you whole,
like a parasite feeding on the good in your soul,
when the darkness creeps in,
there's nothing you can do,
to keep control.

You're paralyzed, (you're paralyzed)
You're paralyzed, (you're paralyzed)
You're Paralyzed,
the light at the end of the tunnel,
is never what it seems.

Don't trust yourself,
you know yourself.

It seems to me,
that the only way you're pleased,
is with razorblades and your white lady,
You can't escape, this is your fate,
a drug filled fantasy.

You're paralyzed, (you're paralyzed)
You're paralyzed, (you're paralyzed)
You're Paralyzed,
the light at the end of the tunnel,
is never what it seems.
Track Name: Nameless, Endless
