Struggles with life, love and boredom - spelt out with sticky fingers by five idiot savants.

Equal parts Neil Young, Cat Power and Blink 182, Porridge Radio's songs are 2 cups of emotion for every tablespoon of salt. The crisp, golden brown surface of Rice, Pasta and Other Fillers belies a childhood misspent consuming The Carpenters, Supertramp and Guns 'n' Roses, with a generous sprinkling of the Cranberries.

After a series of home recorded solo demos, a split EP with West America, a single on CHUD records, and a comp with No Dice records, and the growing legend of their live shows, RP&OF is the dragged out remnants of sessions done in the band's earliest stage (summer 2k15). Many of the songs are full band reworkings of Porridge Radio's earliest bedroom demos.

RP&OF's lyrics, title and artwork, as well as the group's name, brings to mind a certain scrapbook absurdism at the core of Porridge Radio's work. Faced with the dark abyss of existence, the band scrapes together some value from malarky, baloney and balderdash, and then cling to it, giggling, for dear life.

This isn't revivalism, stylised posturing, or calculated blog fodder. It's not really anything, other than some sad friends expressing some weird feelings in a way that they like and find fun. I like it a lot too. At the dawn of midnight they sacrifice the goat to satan, praying for the end of mankind and the dawn of a new satanic era.

Track Name: Danish Pastry Lyrics
the first thing I can do
when I wake up in the morning on any given day is say hello
I am alive
but I do not do this
I stumble out of bed confused and upset
that the world exists
and so do I


and that’s when I google Danish pastry lyrics
that when I google I have no imagination
that’s when I google do you love me any more

and im sorry that I told I don’t feel safe with you because I do
and im sorry that I told you that youre boring me

are you wicked like me?
are you wicked like me?

And im sorry that I told you that youre boring cos youre not
And im sorry that I told you that I think you suck
And im sorry that I told you that I think youre boring cos youre not

And that’s when I google
Danish pastry lyrics
That’s when I google
Im so fuCKING boring
That’s when I google
Are you sick of me yet?
Cos I am sick of me yeah
Are you going through a crisis of identity
And do you miss me?

If your body is not well then your mind cannot be clear and if theres nothing in your head then theres nothing left to make
You feel
Then theres nothing left to make
You feel
Then theres nothing left to make
You feel


Then theres nothing left to make you feel
Then theres nothing left to make you feel
Then theres nothing left to make you feel

I cant make you feel

I cant make you feel

I cant make you feel

I cant make you feel
Track Name: Lemonade
And it takes more than lemonade
To make sense of make sense of the day
And it takes more than lemonade
To make sense of make sense of the day

And it takes more than one mistake
To figure out what you can break
And it takes more than lemonade
To make sense of make sense of the day

And it takes more than weed to make sense of the day and
It takes more than one of your stupid mistakes and
It takes more than this to make sense to make sense of the day

And it takes more than weed to make sense of the day and
It takes more than weed to make sense of the day and
It takes more than one of your stupid mistakes and
It takes more than lemonade

it takes more than lemonade
To make sense of make sense of the day
it takes more than lemonade
To make sense of make sense of the day
Track Name: Barks Like A Dog
And he barks
Like
A dog

And I smile endlessly
And I’m crying so so hard
You cant see me
But you bark like a dog
Bark like a dog
Bark like
a dog

And you’re barking like a dog barking like a dog barking like a dog

And the beauty seeps in in the cracks where the pain comes in
And it numbs me
And it holds me
And it rocks me and it keeps me sane and it numbs my brain
And it keeps me sane and it keeps me sane
And im falling falling falling
And I cant see clearly clearly clearly
But I love you dearly dearly dearly
And im falling gently gently gently in love
With all the things that things that break me and they really hurt me hurt me hurt me
but they keep me sane and warm
Sane and warm
Sane and warm
But you bark like a dog bark like a dog bark like a dog
And Im smiling smiling smiling
And I think im crying crying crying
And my head is broken broken broken
And im falling deeper deeper deeper

And im drowning in a sea of white noise
And you smile endlessly
And youre drowning in my sea of white noise

Because for good or for bad
Good or for bad
We are tied to this place
Tied to this place
Tied tied tied tied tied tied tied

And I try to be good try to be good for you and me and all the things I love and all the places places places
but it numbs me numbs me numbs me...

Because for good or for bad
good or for bad
We are tied to this place
Tied to this place
Tied tied tied.....

And you bark like a dog
bark like a dog
bark like a dog

and youre barking like a dog barking like a dog barking like a dog

and youre barking like a dog
barking like a dog
barking like a dog
barking like a dog

and ive forgotten how to smile
smile smile smile...

and the pain’s coming in where the beauty does
and the beautys coming in where the pain does
and it numbs me and it hold me and it rocks me and it keeps me sane and it numbs my brain
and it keeps me sane and it keeps me sane
Track Name: Walking The Cow (Daniel Johnston cover)
daniel johnston's lyrics not mine:

trying to remember
but my feelings cant know for sure
try to reach out
but its gone

gone

lucky stars
in your eyes
I am walking
The cow

I really don’t know
How I came here
I really don’t know
Why im staying here

i am walking the cow

Tried to point my finger
But the wind keeps blowing me around
In circles
In circles

Lucky stars
In your eyes
I am walking the cow

I really don’t know
Why I have to care
I really don’t know
What I have to fear

i am walking the cow
Track Name: Can U Hear Me Now?
i am talking to you
i am talking to you
i am talking to you

i am talking to you
i wish you were here
can u hear me now

My confusion is your confusion is not excusing my bad behaviour
Its bad to know you are not my problem
That is not my problem that is not my problems are
Meaningless, my problems are meaningless so listen to someone else
Please listen to someone else
Im sick to death of me
Listen to yourself
Listen to yourself listen to someone else
Im sick to death of me
Listen to yourself listen to yourself
Im sick to death of me
Listen to yourself listen to yourself listen to someone else

i am talking to you
i wish you were here
can u hear me now
can u hear me
Track Name: Sorry
there’s one hundred ways of dealing with this shit
There’s one hundred ways of feeling like
You cant go on you cant go on so
I don’t know why I try to be
I don’t know what I wanna be

Theres one hundred ways of dealing with this shit
But I don’t know if I’ve got the energy to try
Theres one hundred ways of dealing with this shit but I think ive only got the energy
To cry

Well you know theres a hundred ways of dealing with this feeling
But it only gets worse when youre
Drowning in it
And you know theres a hundred people who will tell you that its all ok
But theres only one kinda person who
Will see you through
But maybe they wont
Be around for you
Well you know theres a hundred million different kinds of ways to be ok
I know you know
Well you know theres a hundred million different kinds of ways to be ok
You know I know

But the only way I know is just to scream along and tell you that im done im done im done
Im done with this
Im done with you
Im done with all the things I feel
And you know I wanna sleep forever
Oh you know I wanna sleep forever

Oh im sorry oh im sorry oh im sorry but I tried
Oh im sorry oh im sorry but I tried

Oh you know theres a hundred million different kinds of ways to be ok but I don’t know a single one of them today

And I love it

And you know I know how to make myself alright just being fine
But it’s been years oh its been years and I’m just tired of this shit
And you know I wanna sleep forever
and you know I wanna be the one to tell you that its all ok
and you know I hate being the one who has to be told that its all ok
and im sorry that you thought that I was there
and im sorry that you have to care

Oh im sorry oh im sorry oh im sorry but I tried
Oh im sorry oh im sorry but I tried

Track Name: Eugh
You’ve been doing nothing for a while baby and
I was hoping that youd take me for a ride in your new car
You’ve been doing nothing for a while baby and
I was hoping that youd teach me how to play guitar

Doo doo dooo doo

Don’t be a jerk
No don’t be a jerk

I was reading back a book I started late last year and
This is a book in which I started to write all my dreams
I was thinking that maybe we could start again
But you know what it’s the darkest thing I’ve ever written

Don’t be jerk
No don’t be a jerk

Don’t touch im afraid of what I might be feeling and
Don’t touch me ever again
If you do I will not try to pretend
That I don’t like it anymore than
I did then

Don’t be a jerk
No don’t be a JERK

DON’T touch me im afraid of what I might be feeling and
Don’t touch me im afraid of feelings rushing back in
That’s the worst thing that could drive me out of my mind baby

DON’T BE A JERK
NO DON’T BE A JERK

Don’t touch me im afraid of feelings rushing back in
God knows you know how to make me feel like shit and
God knows I know how to make myself feel sick and
God knows how long it took me to get over it and

Don’t be a JERK
NO DON’T BE A JERK

Doo doo doo doo

You’ve been doing nothing for a while baby and
I was hoping that youd take me for a ride in your new car
You’ve been doing nothing for a while baby and
I was hoping that youd teach me how to play guitar

I was hoping that youd take me for a ride in your new car
I was hoping that youd teach me how to maybe play guitar

Your new car
play guitar...
