Having released onto 5.25” floppy disc the first time around, it was decided to take a more “conventional” route with Ipswich's debut studio album. No need to panic though – Baby Factory, out July 20th through MUZAI Records, proves that they still are “noisy pricks.”

Winners of RDU's Roundup 2012 competition and steadily becoming a strong presence on the South Island live scene, Baby Factory exudes the bratty nature of the trio, but foremost it exemplifies their incredibly mature song-writing and execution. This is a band who sound like they should have grown up during the heyday of The Gordons and influencing them to a significant degree.

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Matthew Gunn, Baby Factory has been a closely developed work from the very first click track to the very final flourishes behind the mastering desk. At no point did it pass through the hands of anyone outside the three piece, allowing it to perhaps be subverted by a means not approved by Steven, Jamie and Matthew. Why chance it? It happens from time to time. Not on this occasion.

Ipswich would like to thank Hunter and family, Tristan, Heather Larson, Vince Marr, Amy Marr, Jan Marr, Iain Sweetman, everyone who inspired a hate song, Daniel Blackball Alexander, Sonic Masala, Sam Valentine, Snoop Dogg, 420, Girlfriends, Jessica Dew, Satan, Rhett, T54, Idiot Prayer, Anthesiac, O'Lovely, Villain, The River Jones and all the bands that have played with us, Blink, RDU, all our friends and family and last (but by no means least) Benjii.

In loving memory of Alison Goldthorpe. She wouldn't have enjoyed this music but would have supported me anyway.

Track Name: Oxymoron
I don't want this
for myself
should have chosen
someone else
Track Name: Epic Quest
Waiting all of your life
One tick at a time
Nobody seems to care that your gone

Small town strife
All your empty life
I couldn't care now that i'm gone

Why would you try to tear me apart

Stop trying, i'm fine
Read between the lines
Self centered and self depreciating

Lonely like minds
have had better times
Self centered and self depreciating
Track Name: Satan Plays a Sunburst Strat
We're walking in your streets
Calling you to be free
So take a chance on me
Track Name: Soy Division
pull the wool
out of your eyes
take the time to blame yourself
my meat was fine

i don't like you fucking on your own
i don't like you soy division drones

Spit in my eye
and a thorn in your side
make up problems
my meat was fine
Track Name: Haze
Been sleeping for days
and i'm going to waste
shes got nothing to say
and i'm going away

These eyes are yours forever more

Today's the day you get your rest
Todays the day you get your rest
Track Name: Doctor Schlong
sitting by the road
waiting by myself
someone come along
kill me

standing at your side
waiting by myself
someone come along
kill me

when will you come to
sinking deeper blue
Track Name: Can't Get Enough (Runescape)
Today's the day you learn your way
afraid i say i'm to stay

oh no
they've all gone away
your friends
they're not here to stay

you leave
alone by yourself
i'm pleased
fuck off from this empty town
Track Name: Eat Shit
Eat shit
day to day
feed it to your kids cause your parents spoon fed it to you until you were 18

Satan ain't coming for you
cause hes not real
but gods going to fuck you over

eat shit for every meal
half your daily dose of asshole
cause ignorance is bliss and i don't want to know a thing

as far as i'm aware
you are what you eat
and from what i gather
you eat shit

Every time i see you
it takes days to calm myself
and if you couldn't notice it
i hope you end up down and out

no ones listening
close your eyes, blow yourself.
Track Name: Alien VS Sexual Predator
I don't wanna take your shit anymore
i fucking hate it when you turn up at my door

williamson, fuck you.
