  • Ataris "So Long Astoria" on Limited Coke Bottle Clear Vinyl
    Poster/Print + Digital Album

    This took us over a year to negotiate and iron out but it's finally done. It wasn't cheap to acquire or make so we hope you appreciate it! After 3.5 albums on Kung Fu, The Ataris graduated to the big leagues and knocked it out of the park with with the radio hit Boys of Summer. The first one hundred people that order from us will receive a free Kung Fu era Ataris sticker. This release is identical to the original in terms of the number of tracks and artwork. It comes with a sweet ass paper insert.

Knowledge is key. You can never know too much. Well I won't let them Keep me from learning all I can. Public schools just stand up. The system feeds our minds. Did the system tell you about democracy? The same system that supported slavery? When we try to make a change To lock us up and throw away the key. I won't let you Play me for a fool But I cant pray in school. Make a decision for yourself Don't bother with any trends Open up a book And share the knowledge with your friends. Did the system tell you about democracy? The same system that created slavery? When we try to make a change To lock us up and throw away the key.

I wait for the day to come when I'll wake up and be a star. I dream of a different world... somewhere where we will go far. I bitch about my life. I bitch about the scene. I hate this fucking town wish that it was all a dream. (Chorus) Bitch, bitch, bitch! That's all you ever do. Bitch, bitch, bitch! Your ego will destroy you. Bitch, bitch, bitch! That's all I have to say. Bitch, bitch, bitch! Now I'll just fade away. (Insert lame guitar solo here.) Just as long as I act cool then people will suck up to me. They won't realize that I'm a fake and that's what I'm going to be. A dream and a kid who changes every day. Someone that has to talk when he's got nothing to say Hey kid, it's a great big world out there that you think you need to see. Hey kid, go on and live that life... But live it without me! (Chorus #2) Bitch, bitch, bitch! That's all you ever do. Bitch, bitch, bitch! No one's more punk than you. Bitch, bitch, bitch! Your life is just a trend. Bitch, bitch, bitch! We'll see who's happy in the end.

A star up in the sky goes slowly passing by, The lights below...they spell out your name. You're comfort on my mind and you're with me all the time. And lots of feelings that I can't explain. I won't spend another night alone. [x2] Out of every girl I meet, no other can compete I'd ditch 'em all for a night with you. I know you don't believe you mean this much to me But I promise you that you do. I won't spend another night alone. [x2] If I had one wish this is what it would be... I'd ask you to spend all your time here with me, And we'd be together forever. We'd buy a small house in south central L.A. Raise lots of kids then we'd both join a gang Just as long as we're together. The things you make me wanna do I'd rob a quik-e-mart for you I'd go to the pound and let all the cats go free Just as long as you'd be with me. I won't spend another night alone. [x2]

birds in the air never chirped the same slobs in bowling alleys never burped the same they came to cry shocked with disbelief a broken mass of millions all drowning in their grief she was just an innocent how could you lord? they cried the day that farrah fawcett died Throughout the globe every chinese man and turk their unifying symbol they really liked her work but who's to blame? no one made a move until i find out who did this nobody leaves the room they say the road was icy but that just don't add up a bushy-haired intruder another government cover up! a drug-related overdose a hunting accident death at the hands of another, i'll bet! first JFK and then we lost the king thank god it must be over now they say they come in threes but still i ache the world has lost a friend i'll trade all of my viewmaster reels to see her once again

Seven hits of L and nobody could tell So I spent every dime just to get to Aniehem I was in the Magic Kingdom Now I'm in the Carribean You get something really wicked when you spend an E-ticket High adventure on the sea, but it's not the life for me Now those harry tatooed pirates are all chasing after me I was threatened with a knife by a pirate playing fife Now I'm sailing for my life thanks to LSD 25 Where can I hide? I don't want to buy a bride I'm alone as I float Hey, there were others in my boat Up ahead, one of the men he said he would be my friend He'd guide me to the hole If I deeded him my soul To the hole I didn't make it That doesn't mean he didn't take it He laughed at my plight He said you'll be one of us tonight High adventure on the sea, but it's not the life for me Now those harry tatooed pirates are all chasing after me I was threatened with a knife by a pirate playing fife Now I'm sailing for my life thanks to LSD 25 He was right, I'm still here as I have been, for over a year With my last bit of hope, a tin can and rope I just want to break free But I can't get away No I can't get away cause that damn dog's got the key No one listens as I tell of my ordeal in this cell They stand right by but they don't fell Is this for real? Is this for real!

Collecting dust inside that liquor store 'till you bought it for me A decanter full of whiskey in the image of the King The more I drank from it the less I saw of you That bottle's empty now and you and I are through When you gave me the King of gifts I didn't know what to say Except a hundred and fifty dollars in an awful lot to pay For a girl like you who doesn't make much money, anyway But you cared enough to put away a little everyday For that Elvis decanter, the one you gave to me A fitting symbol of our love, and empty likeness of the King If I had made it last or filled it up would it have changed a thing? It's just an Elvis decanter, the one you gave to me They told me I should save it, it'd be worth something Someday But me I couldn't wait and the King of Rock got lighter everyday Soon it was half empty and I was half as close to you Then I drank the rest, and should've guessed I drank our love in two Elvis decanter, the one you gave to me In the name of Elvis, why did you have to leave? When I love you and I need you desperately tonite

We all went to the Playboy Mansion, Partied with the Marilyn Manson. I think my time's arrived at last, I was doing cocaine off Miss Octobers' Ass. You don't believe me but it's true. You don't believe me and you don't have to. You don't believe me but it's true. You don't believe me and you don't have to. It's not the kind of shit that I'd make up. We all went to the Playboy Mansion, Met some girl with a breast expansion. Saw the stupid car she bought, and got a hand job out in the parking lot. You don't believe me but it's true. You don't believe me and you don't have to. You don't believe me but it's true. You don't believe me and you don't have to. Don't ask me about everybody there, but we did get drunk with that basketball guy with the funny hair. You don't believe me but it's true. You don't believe me and you don't have to. You don't believe me but it's true. You don't believe me and you don't have to. It's not the kind of shit that I'd make up.

Don't need no guidelines, don't want direction Crash right into the intersection Go far away, I think I could And leave 'em high and dry in Hollywood I heard 'em sayin' "Josh Freese is ready He's on the brink now so keep it steady" I want distortion I want Slayer I want a prostitute and not pay her Don't cut it short or draw the line and fuck it up in 1999 I heard 'em sayin' "Josh Freese is ready He's on the brink now so keep it steady" If you want to tell 'em all I'm ready for 'em right away Right away, right away, right away I heard 'em sayin' "Josh Freese is ready He's on the brink now so keep it steady" If you want to let those fuckers know! I want distortion I want Slayer I want a prostitute and not pay her Don't really matter what else you say Just tell 'em all I'm ready right away Right away, right away, right away

Last night our beer turned to piss And all the holes laughed at our miss While the others danced to toy box bands It didn't make a difference they still try to break you I know you have to have a reason For all the wallets that walked out the in door It doesn't matter what your parents said It doesn't matter it just don't matter Waiting for all the bars to shut down You got them running another night on the town Summer assault and summer time Looking through your bloodshot eyes You get it on I know I got a right to be wrong That's why I wrote all of you this song Some are weak and some are strong Looking through your braindead eyes You get it on Last night out piss turned to beer And all out shows ended in fear While the others danced that cocaine dance It didn't make a difference it's all still the same to you I know that things are getting better And you made them believe that you're a go-getter It doesn't matter what those teachers said It doesn't matter it just don't matter He fingers you ‘til the morning You can't wait ‘til next weekend Some things never change Most things stay the same I'm afraid for you and me That we'll end up like dead batteries Chances are I'll be dead and gone So get it on

Those tears remember those burning tears High school can be so cruel You can love anyone You can hurt everyone Miss Piggy Miss Piggy piggy tails Who popped your blue balloon? You can love anyone You can fuck everyone Cats and dogs monchichi wishes Plastered lips and angel kisses Bang, bang, bang goes your little gun A contestant of point and shoot I'm a registered nurse - I can help you I'm a sweaty glove - I can love you I'm that dirty kiss - strong and leveled you Let the truth be told - I can love you Pin you down and throw you up Crush your bones with a wink Stepping on steeples Swallowing needles Sweating on leather Cheating on God And God has cheated on you

Is there such things as to sensitive? Should we ignore what really hurts? You're taking what I'm not giving, It's always the stupid things that seem to hurt us. But can you see it in my eyes? When you walked away and stabbed me in the back. But please don't tell me no more lies, And I can see it in your eyes, When you walked away chin buried in your chest, And don't you think I realize What's going on with the way you feel about me? When I walk around this town, All the different shades of brown, People and the weather are so alike these days. Snow on the ground, depressed and cold Beats the choice of growing old, Thinking about you makes me smile. Confused about the way I feel, Can't find the words to say. I'm screaming but no one's listening, Same distant feelings, different day. Can you see it in my eyes? When you walked away and stabbed me in the back? But please don't tell me no more lies. When I walk around this town, All the different shades of brown, People and weather are so alike these days. Snow on the ground, depressed and cold Beats the choice of growing old, Thinking about you makes me smile. And I can see it in your eyes, When you walked away chin buried in your chest, And don't you think I realize What's going on with the way you feel about me? When I walk around this town, All the different shades of brown, People and weather are so alike these days. Snow on the ground, depressed and cold Beats the choice of growing old, Thinking about you makes me smile.

Tired of hearing what the others think is wrong or right. Popular opinions become morals over night. You think you're bad and wrong. You think you're bad and wrong. Because you did this or did that too long. Fight the war on drugs, or so they say. But then I ask myself, who are they? Who are they to play god with me, when they can't even see past their own TV? Now I think I've got it all figured out. Nobody really knows what anyone else is about. Now I think I've got it all figured out. Nobody really knows what anyone else is about. Everybody knows what they want you to do. When you point the finger there's three pointing back at you. How can all these people tell you, the way that you should go, when they can't even break out of the oldest shell they've ever known? Don't take for granted all the things that you can learn, 'cause your whole mind is what you've learned. 'Cause there's a rhythm, and once you find it you will know, how to get through all the shit and just say no. Now I think I've got it all figured out. Nobody really knows what anyone else is about. Now I think I've got it all figured out. Nobody really knows what anyone else is about. Tired of hearing what the others think is wrong or right. Popular opinions become morals over night. Don't take for granted all the things that you can learn, 'cause your whole mind is what you've learned. Don't take for granted all the things that you can learn, 'cause your whole mind is what you've learned.

You didn't have to be so mean to me I guess now I see how it's gonna be I'm joining GSF, I've made up my mind Forget this thing called love, it's a waste of time Girls ain't no good anymore, anyway! Not for one second have I understood Why they do what they do, why they say what they say Always happens to my friends, it always happens to me It's taken me 19 years to finally see She said "Can we just be friends? It's just not working out." Another broken heart that I can do without Girls ain't no good anymore, anyway! Not for one second have I understood Why they do what they do, why they say what they say

And now I've got a big question mark above my head. I am one step behind the big fall, before packing up and leaving I'm stuck in a junction with 24 ways, how stupid of me to ignore the fact that I'm facing my weird life and future, but still I've got a big smile on my face. I guess nothing will change or turn off the switch in my head nothing will make me to become what you became, nothing is right and nothing is wrong, you live your life now let me live mine. And now I've got a big answer to all my friends, who didn`t understand at all, who didn`t get my way of living this isn't something you learn at school this is not a fucking pose it is something that comes from inside yeah something that I can call my life.

about

This the 2nd Kung Fu Records Sampler, and like the first "No Stars, Just Talent," it has a Hollywood theme. We were sued for using just a portion of the Variety Magazine logo at the top when the Vandals were sued for their parody of that failed magazine's precious logo.

Well now it's back, with new art. What's next? Hollywood Potato Chip with it's original art? Maybe....
