about

Alex Haynes & the Fever Hackney, UK

From a blues/folk background in the North, Haynes moved to the capital to play in a couple of bands before forming his band The Fever in late ‘06.

The Fever was a rotating cast, along the way the act evolved into a two-piece with Haynes performing alongside pianist and drummer Rich Coulson.

With a heavy blues influence on Haynes’ songwriting and an elemental simplicity the result is a rich brew.

Track Name: Jungle Kid (single edit)
Got an alligator heart, with a crocodile smile
Holding onto the reins, gonna make it worthwhile
Ain’t coming down, why don’t ya come on up
Come on over to the other side and try and test your luck

I’m the king of the jungle
You my jungle kid

Gotta ton of sobs, hidden in my shoes
Singin’ nursery rhymes,
An’ they sound like Bo Diddley’s blues
You mean old cat, sitting on the fence
I’ve the heart of dog in a jar,
And a too drunk horse to ride

I’m the king of the jungle
You my jungle kid

Gotta monkey suit, gotta dragons claw
Got everything you need right here and more
I’m the jungle kid baby, you my jungle kid
I’m the jungle kid, you my jungle kid

I’m the king of the jungle
You my jungle kid
And we better keep it hid
Track Name: Tell Everyone (demo)
When you make it out this world alive
Tell everybody that you know
When you make it to some other side
Tell anybody that you meet
I was trying, I was trying, trying to come through
I was trying, I was trying, trying to come through

When you make it on that old, old ship
Just look above your head
When you reach your golden shore
Look up instead
You’ll see me flying, I’ll be flying, flying to you
I’ll be flying, I’ll be flying, flying to you

When you make it out this world alive, reach some other place
Tell everyone you know, tell everybody you see
I was trying, I was trying, trying to come through
I was trying, I was trying, trying to come through

Trying to come through
Trying to be with you
Track Name: Jungle Kid (solo)
Got an alligator heart, with a crocodile smile
Holding onto the reins, gonna make it worthwhile
Ain’t coming down, why don’t ya come on up
Come on over to the other side and try and test your luck

I’m the jungle kid

Gotta ton of sobs, hidden in my shoes
Singin’ nursery rhymes,
An’ they sound like Bo Diddley’s blues
You mean old cat, sitting on the fence
I’ve the heart of dog in a jar,
And a too drunk horse to ride

I’m the king of the jungle
You my jungle kid

Gotta monkey suit, gotta dragons claw
Got everything you need right here and more
I’m the jungle kid baby, you my jungle kid
I’m the jungle kid, you my jungle kid

I’m the king of the jungle
You my jungle kid
