Fighting off the sharks lighting fires out of bark in the belly of the whale
Shovel shit market it place it in the cabinet
Baring all our teeth in the grip of the storm and their ripping out our nails
Stick it in, pull it out, taking it, on the chin, never trust a fisherman

We’re the desert island crazies
Mushroom clouds hanging over head
We may as well be talking to ourselves
As we crawl into our shells

Washed up on the beach drinking bleach and the sun is leathering our tongues
Puking up pissing blood polluting everything we touch
Abandoning our cars building bricks out of rust
Not worth salvaging the guns
If it moves, fucking it, Geologist, Economist, blame the Gynaecologist

The microwaves have altered our features
The lord of the flies hands out tins of leaches
Robinson Crusoe has nothing to teach us
The black rain marked the end of play

The jingles for the trinkets feature Marlene Dietrich
The sea chests are buried along with the fridges
The roads going nowhere since we burnt all our bridges
We’re all in solitary
Live like a castaway
Make a fist then run away

With lyrics sharper than razor-wire and tunes that stick the boot in, Belter is punk for grown-ups who like a dance.

Their first single "TV Junkie" was released in 2012, gaining worldwide airplay and acclaim.

It was followed in January 2013 by a 3-track EP, ‘Invisible Cat’, which sees the band’s trademark sound expanded with a little help from their friends on strings, brass and slide guitar.
