"Grease", sL-Instagram, "Hangin' Around with SL", Bike Build &... "Matches & Bottles" lyrics! (+surprise!)

Jet, UK, 2014.

It's been a really long time, right girls & boys?!
You probably already know that for quite some time we are uploadin' & revampin' the old blog posts (since we moved to the G-blogger platform), but we felt it was about time for a new one! 

Ad really wanted to write this one, but since he's workin' with "Diathlasis" theatrical team for the classic musical "Grease", it's me Jet once again!

Yep, Ad is workin' with a wonderful team of people for the last couple of months, dealing with the artistic development of the cast & the music elements of the show. Harmonies, rhythm, vocals, arrangements, body postures & all the good things! Btw. our own Marina of the sL-Crew is part of the "Diathlasis" team also, acting & responsible for the majority of the new lyrics, which were written in Greek. So, yes! This is "Grease" in Greek for one-of-the-few-times ever in the history of the modern Greek theater & we are really excited! Interviews, rehearsals, production, shows... & Ad is as busy as he ever was! Our boy is always on the run!

Sharin' some feelings now, the way Rockers do! The premier was a really emotional experience. I mean seeing (& actually hearing) the outcome of your best buddy's & "partner in crime" hard work, while the whole thing was a center piece in the band's life for the last couple of months, makes you wonder if a brotherly hug & a few warm words from the heart are enough to express your feelings. But... we know how to sort this out! Just grab the guitars & write some good music! ;)

Pictures of "Grease" premier below!
For info about the show just visit
(Official Website will be available in the comin' days)


And.... we are live on Instagram!
So, if you are into photos & that kind of interaction you are welcome to join!
Just click on the link or pick up your smartphone and... you know the rest... ;)


Also there is the new section/playlist on the sL-Youtube Channel called "Hangin' Around with Sleazy Lizards". 

In fact we were thinkin' of the whole concept for quite some time. It started almost one & a half year ago, when me & Ad took a "break" & started travelin' & exploring various places with a camera in hand. You know traveling & experiencing the road was always a big part of our life, especially since me & Jim are lovers of the "Two-wheeled Iron Horses" & as we said already... Ad is always on the run!
So there will be longer & shorter videos over there to share some of these & other experiences with you.

Subscribe, Like, Comment, Share & as we say... In general do whatever you want! ;) Our interaction & your participation & support are very important to us!

Here's a little something in the spirit of the days!


On a side note... you know that me & Jim are (re)building & customizing a motorcycle for the last couple of months. We said a few things on the sL-Live Streams (sL-Channel again) & some of you saw some of ours & "Two Teeth" Johnny's photos on the various sL-Communities.

Found the bike around December 2013 (the bike was left to rot for almost 6 years), bought it in April & then it was... "child's hour"! Payed a visit to Jim's beautiful house (garden & trees & cats & all - you met Lazarus - the Cat-dreaming-of-being-Bird) & stayed there... well... spring passed &... summer passed & ... autumn passed... &... HA HA HA HA! You get the idea! It was a really really long stay & we had the time of our lives! & while we had one bike in mind we end up working on two bikes! Almost like Heaven! HA HA HA HA! 

[No, it's not Lazarus. That's the Grey One!]

Anyway! There's is a ton of raw footage, photos etc. & we are playing with the idea of uploadin' the whole package somewhere. Will it be a Facebook Page or something else? We don't know yet. But if you wanna jump aboard let us know! It won't be a fancy thing... just two (& sometimes more) dirty Rockers wrenchin'. Lots of photos, no words, some vids. Btw. the bike is out on the road now and... we are "Runnin' down a Dream" ! ;)

[Taken during one of the first rides. It was... fine tuning the carbs time!]


Wow! Had a lot to say since the last blog-post on the first sL-Blog & that's not even the (tenth) half of it!
I remember things I forgot & forget things I had to remember! HA HA HA HA!

Well, to the point!
For quite some time now some of you, especially after the live shows or during private conversations, ask for the lyrics!
You want the whole thing written down on a paper. 
To read, to sing, to share, to ponder upon it!

Well your wish is granted!
There's a huge database here in The Vault, so we had to organize a few things first.

[ Not The Vault... but still... a pretty interesting database! ;) Taken recently during a visit to the O2 Arena, London, U.K. ]

This time is "Matches & Bottles", which is (usually) the show opener. A lyric (acoustic live) video is already uploaded on the sL-Channel (Youtube, Vimeo & Dailymotion), but here are also included the "Matches & Bottles" intro & outro lines for the first time. The complete lyrics are also available on various webpages by now (MetroLyrics, etc.)

So put on your favorite boots, check if the neighbors are sleeping & start readin' the words, while singin' accordin' to the groove!

..."Sir, I'm Innocent...
It's just the Way it is..."

- Jet

Band:  Sleazy Lizards
Track: Matches & Bottles 

(It feels so long ago 
& I don't know what to say... 
It's in the things you know 
& things you couldn't say 

It is something, somewhere 
It is something deep inside 
It is something, somewhere 
in the things you try to hide...)  

I know that something Wrong is goin' on 
I don't care if the world is upside Down 
Deep inside... I don't wanna really know 
if the World is burning to the ground... 

and I Feel like so many others do... 
like a cocktail... Ready to Explode 
Light me Up and throw me in the Air 
Down in Flames is the only way to go 

Just a Match and Loaded with Vodka 
Just a Match and Loaded with Gin 
Just a Match and Loaded with Whiskey 
Sir, I'm Innocent... 
It's just the Way it is... 

Someone to convince me Everything's Right 
Someone to convince me I got it all Wrong 
Words of Wisdom, Lies and Madness 
Mixed In together, 
in a Broken Burnin' Bottle 

I know that something very Wrong is on 
Gotta find a Way to get Us Out 
With matches, bottles and Alcohol 
you just give'em Reasons to put you Down 

What is Dangerous and No one Controls 
is What you got Inside your Mind 
Don't be Fooled 
and Change 'cause you're growin' Old 
After all, they're just... 
waitin' You to Die 

Just a Match and Loaded with Vodka 
Just a Match and Loaded with Gin 
Just a Match and Loaded with Whiskey 
Sir, I'm Innocent... 
It's just the Way it is... 

Someone to convince me Everything's Right 
Someone to convince me I got it all Wrong 
Words of Wisdom, Lies and Madness 
Mixed In together, 
in a Broken Burnin' Bottle 

(Holdin' the Truth 
in my bleedin' empty fist 
What can you do, 
when the problem is so deep... 

Pills & Lemon for (Tear) Gas 
& Money ain't enough 
I don't want no Bling Bling 
Just the Right to feel alright...)
