about

Rarities Collection - pre-album demo versions, one-offs and previously vinyl only releases.
Includes cover artwork.

"To the uninitiated this collection of once forgotten rarities and unreleased versions absent from any studio or live albums to date is a fine introduction to The Hangmens’ unmistakable raw dark energy.

Calling it a rarities collection is weighted, until now they’ve notoriously refused to reissue, repackage or repress previous output, and so it also stands to compliment existing album collections.

Dredged and salvaged from the bands own vaults of raw demos and vinyl only release versions these ceaseless, snarling cadavers have here been mastered at Western Star Studios, exhumed and groomed to menace new minds and unsettle old ones. Enjoy - for want of a better word!"

"So raw it attracts bacteria".

Track Name: Ugly (demo)
Close your eyes, do you see black or see another eye looking back?
Have no books of rules to read, write your own and take no heed.
What is evil? What is good? It all depends on where you 're stood.
All you know is what you're told. Hell is hot, graves are cold.
Ugly...ugly thing. Ugly...ugly, my eyes begin to sting.
Light so bright you can't see? Sounds like being in the dark to me.
What is next and why until? Wake up, time for your sleeping pill.
Be you poor or be you rich, life is short, cheap and a bitch.
Ugly...ugly thing. Ugly...ugly, my eyes begin to sting.
Inside out and upside down with your head the wrong way round, saying things others have said, writing words already read. Being what you're meant to be. Planning each move cautiously.
Are you in or out of place?
Smile for others with your face.
Ugly...ugly thing. Ugly...ugly, my eyes begin to sting.
Best just go to sleep my friend, practice for the big one at the end. Be you live or be you dead we'll all end up in a single bed. You'll find it's just like being alive, killing yourself just trying to survive. Kiss nightmares for heavens sake, gotta be better than staying awake.
Ugly...ugly thing. Ugly...ugly, my eyes begin to sting.

Track Name: Do You Wanna Buy The Deathwish? (demo)
Stranded on the streets of Pandemonium, Pandemonium first city of Hell. Met a man in need of a soul, needed a soul and he'd pay me well. As we burned we struck a deal, struck a deal on a burnt handshake. Then he fell down at my feet, at my feet never to wake.
Do you wanna buy the deathwish sonny? We can work out a deal I won't take your money. Try an offer too good to be true - you can stop the world but it can't stop you.
I saw the meaning of a million things as a million things layed down to die. Took the power of death upon me, upon me depends on why some still breathe without reason, no reason why others stop. As I travel on un-noticed notice those who cross me drop.
Do you wanna buy the deathwish sonny? We can work out a deal I won't take your money. Try an offer too good to be true - you can stop the world but it can't stop you.
All died happily ever after, after all it's only fair when the world you belonged to has changed, changed 'til it's no longer there, gone and never to return. Turn your back and let it be. But now that I hold the death wish wishing's all that's left for me.
Do you wanna buy the deathwish sonny? We can work out a deal I won't take your money. Try an offer too good to be true - you can stop the world but it can't stop you.
Round the world I went forever, forever is boring now. Eternity has no charm. Charmed I'd be to take my bow.
I am just so very weary of the one life I can't end. The soul I've traded's what I'm needing. Needing a new deal my friend.
Do you wanna buy the deathwish sonny? We can work out a deal I won't take your money. Try an offer too good to be true - you can stop the world but it can't stop you.

Track Name: Whore For The Devil (demo)
When she was born her mama died. All she ever saw was tears.
Her family tried with no success to make her smile or blink for years.
They dumped her in an institute, gave her up as a geek, one day a smile broke her barren face and she menstruated for a week.
Now she's a whore, whore for the Devil,
She's a whore for the Devil, who she loves
While she's a-wriggling over you it's the Devil she's thinking of.
You can't ever win her heart 'cos of the way you're born. You may be handsome as the Devil but you've only ever got one horn.
And while you're paying in sweat and more for what she does for you, you get what you're paying for and the Devil gets his due,
'cos she's a whore, whore for the Devil,
She's a whore for the Devil, who she loves
While she's a-wriggling over you it's the Devil she's thinking of.
Sure looks like an angel so no matter what they say, who minds doing the Devils work even if there's Hell to pay?
When she's good she's very good but when she's bad she's best. Don't matter what side you're own you're gonna figure that you've been blessed
And she's a whore, whore for the Devil,
She's a whore for the Devil, who she loves
While she's a-wriggling over you it's the Devil she's thinking of.
The Devil she's thinking of.

Track Name: Daemonfreakshow
Wanna take in a show? There's only one place to go, spinning heads and twisted limbs and all kinds of perverted whims.
The walking deadest show on Earth all for two pound fiftys' worth, headless freaks with shredded skin, incestuous folks next of kin.
Step inside, come and see it could be your destiny, bleeding eyeballs, burning hearts and other countless body parts.
If you like what you see come again next time for free.
See the corpses come and go to see the daemonfreakshow.
It's the one on the Gretsch, deformity to make you wretch, it's the one on the bass - a fucking mutant basket case.
Through the door and to the right behold such a ghastly sight, it's the one on the skins - a hideous work of human sins
If you like what you see come again next time for free.
See the corpses come and go to see the daemonfreakshow.
Track Name: Zombie World (demo)
From behind ravaged faces they take their glance at me, familiar to each other that's all it now can be. See at first glance the worlds okay, I'm not fooled it's not that way - dead can walk and bleed.
Zombie World...
They don't remember nothing, they don't know what they do. They only know to keep on going despite the fact they're through.
You're not like them they want to kill your dignity and your free will and take you with them too.
Zombie World...
They don't need no family plan thrashing on the floor, corpses can't get pregnant man, they piss entrails and gore.
Maggots nibble at my skin, tingle like a pricking pin.
I can't take no more.
Zombie World...
At first glance the worlds okay, I'm not fooled it's not that way - dead can walk and bleed.
Track Name: Stop That Monkey
Stop that fucking monkey that monkey's gonna fry.
That motherfucking monkey's wanted by the FBI.
We throw it at the monkey, the monkey throws a fit, the monkey goes bananas and it's time for us to split.
Stop that fucking monkey that monkey's gonna fry.
That motherfucking monkey's wanted by the FBI.
If we don't stop that monkey that's really fucking it.
If we don't stop that monkey holy motherfucking shit.
Someone stop that monkey.
Who can stop that monkey?
Code red. Stop that monkey.
Thousands dead. Stop that monkey.
Cities trashed. Stop that monkey.
Markets crashed. Stop that monkey.
Hopes dashed. Stop that monkey.
Track Name: The Curse
I put that snake in your belly, you see I knew what was coming. It turned your guts into jelly, made you bleed like a woman.
What you don't understand you won't believe exists.
Solution in your hand for you to slash your wrists.
Because I know how to see things with more than just my eyes I see how a bad choice brings a very high price.
And I know where to get hate in its purest form - I go to the source and I wait in the eye of the storm.
So how do you like my mumbo-jumbo now?
Aint no way I'm gonna lift this curse, no, no no, no way, no how.
Your heart is wrenched out from inside. A gaping cavity where any hope that was left dies to burn for me. Burning in flames so black that they are never seen, so evil they burn forever slicing like a guillotine.
Oh things get steadily steadily worse I vow.
Aint no way I'm gonna lift this curse, no, no no, no way, no how.
And when your bad times really come I will know, I'll see.
And when your bad times really come you remember me.
And when you think it's all behind you and you count the cost, all that's left serves to remind you of all you have lost.
Dragged down again without mercy as your nerves explode.
Let the one who dealt the curse see your fabric corrode.
When what's left screams out for the end scream on now.
Aint no way I'm gonna lift this curse, no, no no, no way, no how.
Track Name: Bad Blood (vinyl version).
Saviours coming, so am I, sun's burning out we're all gonna die. Bodies as far as the eye can see. Dead don't need celibacy.
Some day soon we'll all be gone, gonna help the Lord along.
Bad Blood. Die you Zombie bastards...
Sit down to dine, who bust the door? Grandpa's the best round these parts for sure. Bucket and hammer, folks gotta eat. Nutritious head cheese, fresh killed meat.
Minding our business, mind your own too. Snoop around see what happens to you.
Bad Blood. Die you Zombie bastards...
Don't worry none we'll take care of it, crying solves nothing so just you quit. There's bad inside, we'll set it free. Things will be fine you wait and see. Scream all you like, we don't mind, good for redemption. Good for your kind.
Bad Blood. Die you Zombie bastards...
Track Name: Firewalker (7" vinyl version)
You can't come with me I'm a firewalker. Those who do have gotta believe they can. No passenger room for idle talkers. You can't come where you don't understand.
Got cold feet? Stick to familiar streets maybe someone will carry you a while.
Choose the journey not the destination, or when you're a forgotten pile of bone know it was not my gesticulation - the hand that led you back was just your own.
Sensations my feet find prove each step is mine - every burning step of every mile.
Judge me when you've walked a mile in my shoes. Fools stand still where angels fear to tread. Dream of new horizons and you will lose. But you don't understand a word I've said.
Your way will twist and turn 'cos you're afraid to burn. Did you wave? Do you see how I smile?
I'm a firewalker, walk on fire.
Track Name: Godkilla (demo)
I like hiding away and looking at them when they can't see me. I like going the wrong way, and screaming blue murder into my TV. I like wearing your skin when talking jibber jabber to the neighbours kids, and I like nothing. One of these days I'm going to sew up all your eyelids.
Godkilla...good God.
I want to spit on the throne, they'll cut out my tongue but they know that I'm right. And I want to be left alone having stole the silver spoon from Princess Parasite.
Godkilla...good dog.
I wish people everywhere hated themselves as much as I hate them, and I wish they were never there. They turn my stomach and they raise my phlegm.
Godkilla...Polyfilla...Godkilla...good God.

Track Name: Take It To The Grave (demo)
Hit the dust, twist and bust, rise from the ashes, in no Gods trust, never sit down, curse this day, watch your back but never what you say.
Blow all minds, slam all doors, stop at nothing to start more wars, take a wrong turn, crash and burn, take it to the grave.
Bleed it dry, hit a new high, spit in a face, be unsatisfied, shoot it all up, put it all down, run up more bills get run out of town, pedal to the floor, rotten to the core, dial the same wrong number twenty times or more, find a bridge to burn, never wait your turn, take it to the grave.
Find a snake pit, shake it, stomp your feet and wake it, take it live and bake it, drag it to your cave.
Hate it, break it, throttle it and fake it, take it naked or you'll never make it to the grave.
Did you find your Hell? Did you make it down? Did you make it up while you were sat around?
Don't stick it out, kick it out, nothing to get sick about.
Take it to the grave.
Just take it.
Track Name: Goodbye Coffin Joe (demo)
Not one friend among the living, deaths accomplice unforgiving. Well I've made you a box just as long as you're tall - a bottom and a lid and six side walls.
Goodbye goodbye Coffin Joe. Down in the cold bad ground you go. As you reap so you shall sew, goodbye Coffin Joe.

No one stepped inside that place, not one smile ventured his face. Only when the prayers were left far behind did he want to pay you any mind.

No one wanted what he knew, all the evil that men do. So we're left with a job that must be done. A cry that will reach out to everyone.

Goodbye goodbye Coffin Joe, goodbye.
