about

HARDCORE ALTERNATIVE ROCK FROM LONDON'S DIY STALWARTS

'Hear No Evil' is Djevara's latest studio album (or, more accurately, the second part of it), and the first to feature the current line-up. More polished and progressive than what had come before, the record is still captures the raw punk energy that Djevara fans have come to expect. After almost self-combusting both internally and externally in creating part 1, the band used part 2 as the start of the fight back and in the process may have created their most ambitious record to date. The time is now.

"Good isn't a word to be wheeled out when magnificent is still available. Djevara, right here, right now, are magnificent."
- UNPEELED.NET

"their power, their emotion, the way they turn their limitations into a great big positive and that sum of the whole does make Djevara, their new album and everything that they stand for, absolutely vital. This is a brave honest refreshing committed album, a raw album, a very ambitious album, and ultimately... a triumph of an album. Few would have the guts to even try it." - ORGAN 'THING OF THE DAY' " - ORGAN ART (awarded "THING OF THE DAY")

"powerful as all Hell...'Hear No Evil' is chaotic hardcore that's as emotionally charged as it is socially aware, with particular impact from an account of domestic violence in 'The Tort Of False Light'."
ROCK SOUND

"brilliantly produced, well constructed and mature examples of an approach to songwriting which owes as much to Fugazi, At The Drive-In and Million Dead as it does to the aforementioned Rage... the arrangements [are] dynamic and varied [and] they also know how to produce a lightning rod of a riff as well when such a moment is called for, and how to build their compositions to powerful crescendos. Djevara have already achieved an impressive amount off their own backs; 'Hear No Evil' is testament to that"
SUBBA CULTCHA

"Musically the Brit trio have produced a record which is as powerful as the lyrical sentiments it promotes...
A heartfelt and powerful release, effectively delivering the band's message and leaving you with more to think about than just six excellent slabs of heavy duty rock you can get lost in." 12/13
- ROOM THIRTEEN

"Djevara are a kick ass progressive HC band that really do deliver the goods - 9/10"
- STREETVOICE UK

Track Name: Most Of The People, Most Of The Time
Most of the people, Most of the time:
"We'll wait
'cos waiting's what we do
We'll wait
'cos waiting's seen us through
So far
So good."

So sick of waiting.
So fucking sick.

No.

You'll wait, you'll wait, for someone else to set you free
You'll wait, you'll wait, but no-one else will set you free

See I crawl, and beg
And lap, and dance
And fawn, and suck
Yet listen to what they're telling me

"Calm down. Calm down." (They're telling me)
"Calm down."

You ask yourself "why set myself to fail when I can just stow away?"
(I understand...) You're scared... whisper it
(I understand...) You're scared... whisper it

But who's left to say "This isn't right"?
Get me a witness, call me a witness

Come here, stand up , let's finish what we started
Let's remember the departed as we gather strength
From victories past
Come here, stand up, let's finish what we started
Let's honour those who've parted, who live on
In memories cast
In deeds that last
Remember:

"Free at last"

This African son can still remember the burn
Of an African sun in a forgotten land
This is The Third World, could be another world
Under an African sun in a forgotten land

But who's left to say "This isn't right"?
Get me a witness, call me a witness

The light in your eyes has faded with the dulling ache of compromise but one day we'll say:
"This is where we were, this what we saw
This is who we were, this is what we heard":
Will you regret it?

We'll ask "What did we do?"

The time is...
NOW.

How do you even know that you're alive?

I've never felt this much alive... (x3) with this devotion
I've never felt this much alive... (x3) with this emotion
Sometimes you've got to shout it out

Sometimes you've got to... (the time is...)

Otherwise you'll see what we'll become
You'll see what we'll become
See what we'll become
We've got to keep the dream alive

I've never felt so much alive
Am I alone like this?
Am I afraid of this?
Am I a fool to feel this?
Am I alone?

So now you see
It's up to us

I've never felt so much alive
Track Name: 20/20
20/20

Can't you see it's burning?

Some days are easier
I nearly make it all the way
The thoughts I shouldn't think
Sink to the bottom and get buried away
The dregs are all I have left
And like an addict I pine
But when my passions get stirred
I see clearer than before

What I thought I saw was
A child burned by water
A woman drowning in oil
It's a beautiful picture
But what did I learn?

I must have been high 'cos
Though my vision was blurred
I saw everything... much clearer than before
Will we sink to the bottom?
D'you think we'll sink to the bottom?
If I remembered the answers
I would give them to you, I would give them to you

What I thought I heard was (I would give them to you)
A man crying for joy (I would give them to you)
Another laughing in pain (I would give them to you)
The roof is on fire (I would give them to you)
I'm watching it burn (I would give them to you)

Selling out. Running out.
Drowning out. Burning out.
This world.

Can't you see where we're going?
This future we're making
That we're driving
Over the edge

I will sell you an issue
I will have to sell you an issue
Because these men don't understand anything
That isn't measured in dollars and cents
Like "can I help you?"
"Can I help you, brother?"
If we had had the answers
Would we throw them away, throw them away?

What I thought I saw was (Would we throw them away?)
My child paying for air..? (Would we throw them away?)
The roof is on fire (Would we throw them away?)
I'm watching it burn (Would we throw them away?)

Can't you see it's burning?

Can't you see where we're going?
This future we're making
That we're driving
Over the edge
Drive on. (I'm over it)
Drive on. (I'm over it)
Drive. (I'm over it)
Drive. (I'm over it)
Track Name: The Tort Of False Light
(The Tort Of) False Light

"So tell me,
WHERE are you going to go?
and WHO you are you going to call?"

She's falling
She's falling for it again.
She's falling.
This is where I get off.

It's not an issue
What you've fallen into
But it's not love
IT'S NOT LOVE
But love may rescue
This world split in two
Though it burns
...your son

But if you close your eyes
You won't miss a thing, so

DON'T
WAKE
ME
UP
FROM THIS DREAM.

This man.
Has descended.
This man.
Has devolved.
This man.
Has rescinded.
This man.
Has devolved.
No amount of sophistry
No amount of technical wizardry
No amount of liberal history
Will re-dress
This Naked Ape.

All he can say is
"It won't happen again"
All you can do is
Wait for it to happen again

I can't help you
I can't help you
I can't help you
Take these chains off now

(I've watched your light as it fades
A fate your heart struggles to contain
That same light that burns your eyes
It's your rope, your thread to survive
Just remember that you're not on your own
Tell yourself you're not on your own)

It's not an issue
What you've fallen into
But it's not love
IT'S NOT LOVE
But love may rescue
This world split in two
Though it burns
...your son

Even if its fiction
Words sometimes lead to actions

Where do I draw the line?
Maybe she's seen the light

No, she's falling
She's falling for it again
She's falling
This is where I get off
Track Name: Waiting For The Cull
Waiting For The Cull
----------------------------

Do you still sleep with the lights on?

Stop pretending like you care, like you give a shit
Stop pretending like you care, as if you give a fuck
What happens next

I'm getting tired of waiting
(How do you keep your act up?)
Even if denial's titillating
Let's welcome the dogs of hell in
'Cos I'm getting tired of waiting

Let me tell you how it is
How it's going to be
Where the chips will fall
When the room runs out on the ship
'n the mask of civilization begins to slip
When we're running out of lifeboats
When we're running scared and frightened
Very few are gonna make it
And frankly... that's the best part of it

Stop pretending like you care, like you give a shit
Stop pretending like you care, as if you give a fuck
What happens to us

Come
Into the fire
Dance with me in the fire

Hooray!
Happy birthday.
But you're still searching..?
Still holding out for change...

Change...
Change you can hold in your hand...

Waiting for the end
Just like everyone you want to be a part of it
Crawling over bodies just to be "Someone"
I'm just like everyone I won't deny it
I'm just like you, I don't deny it

Waiting for the end to come
I'll tell you a secret: I've been rooting for this

WAITING FOR THE END
WAITING FOR THE END TO COME
JUST LIKE EVERYONE YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF IT
CRAWLING OVER BODIES JUST TO BE SOMEONE
I'M JUST LIKE EVERYONE I WON'T DENY IT
I'M JUST LIKE YOU, I DON'T DENY IT

Just waiting for the end

Don't deny me this
DON'T DENY ME
