about

Recorded during summer of 2016. This is the first studio material recorded by the band.
The material was independently released in Rijeka, Croatia.
Produced and mastered by Sajo in Ljubljana & Rijeka.

"Mind-alteringly progressive and knuckle-draggingly primal at the same time, Longhare are a Croatian rock ensemble with big ideas and even bigger hooks. Welcome to the Future, where it sounds like a much cooler version of 1979 forever!"
Classic Rock magazine, printed in UK, issue 236, June 2017

"Croatian prog-rock band Longhare have only just hit the scene, but The Rug Party already shows that they are ready to rock and roll with the big guys. Infusing classic, Sabbath-like guitar tones with complex time signatures and the weird but wonderful lyrical themes so typical of prog, Longhare have created a record that could just as easily have been released in 1976. The opening track, ‘Fat West United’, is a great driving track, just be careful not to change your speed as suddenly as these guys do."

Track Name: Fat West United
FAT WEST UNITED
(Lyrics by Gojo)

Overfed I eat cake I drink shake
As big as a bear won't get up from my chair
You say world hunger – I'll have a world piece
Words that echo off the smile of my teeth

Chorus:
Portrait of the west – not to beat on your chest
Ruled over by fear – belly fat my dear

Stuff your face the real progression of west
Take shit as a jest and make better than rest

Chorus

This apple pie sure came right out of heaven
Well I won't settle for one – I'll have all seven
And if I say whatever, I'll do what I want
It don't change the fact that I'm an – outrageous flaunt
Track Name: Welcome to the Future
WELCOME TO THE FUTURE
(Lyrics by Gojo)

Welcome to the future
It's the tweet of the day
Excitement brought by product
Key-word is just – sale!
Legal makes as moral takes
“I want”’s the only law
In the heat of this jungle
Best meat is eaten raw!

Chorus:
Here’s to the future
Don’t make a wild guess
We’ll sure tunnel our vision
It’ll be just like today

Welcome to the future
It's the Tweet of the day
Excitement brought by product
Key-word is just – sale!
Legal makes as moral takes
“I want”’s the only law
In the heat of this jungle
Best meat is eaten raw!

Chorus

Reality is only now – tomorrow is forever
Reality passed by – the future waits real clever
To safeguard the past is to lose all your future
Forget and forgive – a time bomb defuser :)
Track Name: Mr. He is a Dog
MR. HE IS A DOG
(Lyrics by Gojo)

Hey! These girls I know
It sounds so cheesy
But oh, just can’t have both
Some see it clearly

Rules – I’d break them all
And pay most dearly
But woe to all us boys
Love comes so easy!

Mr. He is a Dog! Mr. He is a dog!

I’ll pick up the phone
List all of my women
To make up my mind
Weigh all of love given

So now – one girl, one boy
Goes without sayin’
When a dog’s in heat you know – it’s not playing!
Track Name: Sic Transit Gloria
SIC TRANSIT GLORIA
(Lyrics by Gojo)

No responsibilities – this is not their game
What you call it – just the same
Pure and simple play

To those that board the upper decks
I’ll tell you just one thing
Sic transit gloria – Be sure to wax your wings!

So, don’t you mind trying
To lend a helping hand
Forgo the chimes of yesterday
Try and understand

As to me and only me
I’ll do that one smart thing
Sic transit gloria – out of her reach I’ll sing!

So, don’t you mind trying
To lend a helping hand
Forgo the chimes of yesterday
Try and understand

Disperse your probabilities
That’s not how it’s played
Wave goodbye to yesterday
Breathe in each new day
Track Name: Cop Party
COP PARTY
(Lyrics by Gojo)

Why don’t you come over?
To the cop party
Put the cute back in metal
Come on over
To the cop party
You’ll be massively aroused

We are all men here – so we work up a hustle
Flash me yours – I’ll flex up what’s mine
Real proud of my muscle, real proud of my muscle!

Why don’t you come over?
To the cop party
Put the cute back in metal
Come on over
To the cop party
You’ll be massively aroused

I’m a man, I’ve got my gun
It’s all on a game; aim to shoot for fun
I set out a trap deep in them woods
Done caught me a girl that sure gave and would

We’ll keep our pistols loaded
They lay by our beds each night
Out there, where words are all coded
I dress in pink and act not right!

A tough guy’s breaking point is met on grown man’s playground
And let’s just leave it like that – too much, words just going
Next thing they’ll call you this and that
Track Name: Tommy
TOMMY
(Lyrics by Gojo)

There’s a certain fella
Nicknamed after his rifle
It’s true – he ain’t no commie
For now, let’s call him Tommy

It’s not a stage act
This dude is for real
But all the while and in the meantime
He’ll cash in his appeal

Yes he’s evil that thinks itself good
Fascist, bigot – to name just a few

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
His truest paint-by-number lyric
Specialize in plagiarize
A style he can mimic, oh yeah!

There’s good men to shoot at, they’re bad and they’re called the enemy
Well our man Tommy is truly Tom’s son
Don’t get in too deep now – a well-intended pun
Track Name: Control Freak
CONTROL FREAK
(Lyrics by Gojo)

Every time I step in your shoes
Feels like drowning – like I’m gonna lose
No hard feelings but I don’t need your kind
I’ve got a life, yeah maybe next time

Control freak, control freak, control freak

I’ve seen a lot but I can’t know it all
To hear you talk one’d say you’ve been all before
So shut your mouth and really listen for once
Can make life easy for you – yes, you still have a chance

Control freak, control freak, control freak

A real hard-nut case of verbal diarrhea
Forget what you think, and do as I say
Deal with a control freak – ‘cause he won’t know that he is

Control freak, control freak, control freak
