about

As the world tears itself apart in neo-liberal screams of static and alternative facts bouncing off every antenna, twisting our very thought processes into self hate, the population of this planet are crying out for hope. 6 billion desperate people driven to poverty and despair are looking to defend themselves, to strike back against the tiny oligarchy that's eclipsing the future of this planet. We need an assassin from the left, some one who's willing to return fire. We need a... FAVELA NINJA!

This is our 3rd full length proper album where every track is where it is for a reason. It took ages to make. 4 years for some of the songs!

about

Louis Lingg and the Bombs Paris, France

Louis Lingg and the Bombs are goddamn punk-rock-garage-electro-big beat-pop-anarcho saviours of the 2 and half minute pop song. The bombs they throw are musical, they come from Paris (they could only come from Paris!) and they'll grab you and demand your instant attention.
Their sound is a mix of ultra-political anarchic punk rock and fizzing children's nursery rhyme riot-pop. Formed in 2006!!!!

Favela Ninja Lyrics:

He’s a one man freedom faction - now fuck you!

Raise your glass to the caipirihna killer!

2X
Burn the green zone
burn the green zone
burn the green zone
down! Down

Verse 1

They’re smashin’ up my shanty town
Their throwin my shit all around
(We) need someone to take a stand
Wild impossible

Breathing in the chemicals
Burning lungs and flaking skin
Radiation seeping in
Wild Impossible

You don’t know the shit I’ve seen
You don’t know the life I’ve lived
Growing up where I grew up
Wild impossible

Drones strikes killing all my friends
SWAT teams there to kill dissent
Crushing kids who comprehend
Wild impossible

Chorus
Favela ninja make them alllllll go away
Favela ninja make them all just disappear
Favela ninja be my gheeeetto assassin
Assassin assassino. Méu salvador, amigo

Verse 2

(we're) Makin love to radio
Huddled round the stereo
Dreamin of the embryo
Get me outta here!

(This) Ain’t no place to raise a kid
Fucking system makes me sick
(I) Need someone to stop this shit
Get me outta here!

A killer coming from the left
Striking back, the fucking pigs
Justice comes in kung fu kicks
Get me outta here!

He killed until there was no rich
He freed us from a world of shit
All those kids were smart as whips
Get me outta here!

Chorus
Favela ninja make them alllllll go away
Favela ninja make them all just disappear
Favela ninja be my gheeeetto assassin
Assassin assassino. Méu salvador, amigo

Chorus
Favela ninja make them alllllll go away
Favela ninja make them all just disappear
Favela ninja be my gheeeetto assassin
Assassin assassino. Méu salvador, amigo

to tell you just how I’m feeling – Feeling!

I see my life slip away

And when finally get there
it’s with a touch of despair
As if I needed a leader – Leader!

Track Name: Freedom Fighter
Freedom fighter whoa uh-oh!

Intro - clapping

You know we're gonna make it
All our crimes negated
You know it's all related
I don't think so

Apocalypse is coming
You this world is burning
Now all life is dying
I don't think so

Total toxic overload
Biosphere and life implodes
Society and life explodes
I don't think so

You wanna be my girlfriend?
I won't be your boyfriend
There's no point now it's the end
I don't think so

Now it's got in my head
The idea that we're all fucked
And I think that it's right
We should give in without a fight

No, I'll never give up
No No we won't be crushed
(We'd) rather die on our feet
So we might as well all GO FOR IT!*

It's a riot this for time for sure
It's a freedom fighter - whoa - ohh
I'm telling you what this is
It's a freedom fighter - whoa - ohh
It's a riot this for time for sure
It's a freedom fighter - whoa - ohh
I'm telling you what this is
It's a freedom fighter - whoa - ohh






Everyone's got cancer
D'you wanna touch my tumour
Chemicals everywhere
I don't think so

My girlfriend wants a baby
I just think that's crazy
When this world's so shitty
I don't think so

Lost faith in humanity
Losing grip on sanity
Maybe I should drink less tea
I don't think so

The courage to raise a fist
Weak willed ecologists
Too afraid to resist
I don't think so

Now it's got in my head
The idea that we're all fucked
And I think that it's right
We should give in without a fight

No, I'll never give up
I'm sure we've still got a chance
(We'd) rather die on our feet
So we might as well all GO FOR IT!

Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!!!!

It's a riot this for time for sure
It's a freedom fighter - whoa - ohh
I'm telling you what this is
It's a freedom fighter - whoa - ohh
It's a riot this for time for sure
It's a freedom fighter - whoa - ohh
I'm telling you what this is
It's a freedom fighter - whoa - ohh

Happy Days (When the Sun Explodes)
Verse 1
Now the sun’s gone
Yeah, it blew up yesterday
Mass destruction
All we’ve done will fade away

Now the sun’s gone
Yeah, I’m livin’ here rent free
Consolation
Everyone’s a refugee

Pre refrain:
La la la
Spoken word bit:
Yeah, When the sun went nova
(I) thought back to Barcelona
You could’ve been my lover

Said no to you that day
Thought I’d show restraint
What a bitter waste

Chorus X4
Happy days,
When the sun explodes
With you,
We can be together


Verse 2
Now the sun’s gone
People laugh and dance all day
Desperation
Now please spend some time with me

Now the sun’s gone
Things look better in the dark
Revelation
Is this the time for a new start?

Pre-chorus
Chorus X2
Track Name: WTF

We laughing and transmittin'

Sewing up the slits in it
No-one will admit to it

Chorus:

Verse 2
I screa-ea-eam
My fee-ee-eet
My feet are turning green

My cree-ee-eem
Peni ci-i-illin
Penicillin's hard to find

Penicillin's missin'
Sun is finally settin'
Crying blood is blessin'

Bleeding from my orifice
Finger nails all smell of piss
Mumma hates the days like this
Break:

(Whoa-oh!)
Running like a spider
Greed is the divider
(Ah-ha!)

This life is a
prison system
please please pass me
A shiv to kill 'em

Scratchin' the walls
The screws all force
Themselves on us
of course!

Chorus:
What the fuck! (whooooo -oooooooo)
What the fuck! (whooooo -oooooooo)
What the fuck! No one wants to live in this way (whooooo -oooooooo)
What the fuck! Rectal bleed and your hair turns grey (whooooo -oooooooo)

What the fuck! (whooooo -oooooooo)
What the fuck! No one wants to live in this way (whooooo -oooooooo)
What the fuck! Rectal bleed and your hair turns grey (whooooo -oooooooo)
Track Name: Rave and Steal
Rave and Steal

Verse:
You tell me to be
A tall blitzkreig
Every goes off
tell me tell me have you
Ever seen me shoplift, pale moon light?
I'm the queen of the frozen yogurt section

What do you see in my bag?
I steal whiskey every night
Don't you touch me filthy cunt
This little punker just might bite!

Chorus:
Take me
In your arms now
cos' I'm feeling in a haze
Rave and steal! Rave and Steal!
Take me
In your arms now
'cos I'm longing for old days
Rave and Steal! Rave and Steal!
Track Name: Old Age, Sickness and Death
Chorus
Things that I’m sure of
It’s old age, sickness and death
Things that I can count on
It’s old age, sickness and death

Verse
Oh that first tingle of excitement
That first light touch on the back of your neck
(She gasps) This is -- adventure
The total lack of control

Chorus
Verse 2
When I’m with you, nothing’s certain
I feel you move, I’m in the moment
The taste of yer sweat, and there’s no future
Chaos, you scream my name

Chorus
