about

Twenty-six minutes of pleasure with Minneapolis' sexiest foursome.

The Conquerors debut release, on flesh-colored 10" vinyl from Get Hip Records.

A Supergroup of sorts, featuring members of Minnesota’s greatest revival bands (The Funseekers and The Spectors), in an unlikely collaboration with pop/jazz singer/songwriter Willie Wisely. "TOTODD" is their debut release and it made The Conquerors a lot of quick friends in the garage rock community, resulting in countless festival appearances across the US and Canada.

Songs draw noticeably from ‘60s mod, soul and pop, sounding like the zygotic freak child of UK ‘60s psych and US fuzzbeat. Extra attention has been paid to the songwriting, with tunes that are catchy, yet still dosed with the nonchalant outrage of the coolest garage bands.

“Turn On Tune Out Drop Dead (Remastered Bonus Track Edition)” by The Conquerors is available direct from the artist in 10” pink colored vinyl (Get Hip Records), mp3, FLAC or Apple Lossless format at Bandcamp » the-conquerors-mpls.bandcamp.com » Also available at iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and more.

To Say you need me
Then to change your mind aand leave me
It’s a crime

We leave our love tell me
What were you thinking of
It’s a crime

Do the things you do it makes me
Realize you’ve got a wicked mind
If you could stand in my place
You’d see how much you hurt me all the time
It’s a crime
It’s a crime

Do the things you do it makes me

Track Name: Goodbye Young Lovers
Where will teenage lovers go?
Whither they go?
Where will teenage lovers go?
Whither they go?

In days past tomorrow when love is lying fallow
Machines keep our senses controlled
The love once given eachother
Now is strictly forebode

But they’ll meet in the starways, patrolled by the bobbies
A gentle voice coddles and dwells
“Those disobeying the ways
Are betraying themselves”
But in family-sized sedans
At matinees with no rest for wandering hands…

No time for undressing or to their friends confessing
Just scurry when you see the lights shine
Like rats dating back to the dawn of time

Where will teenage lovers go?
When watchful eyes see all they know
Where will teenage lovers go tomorrow?

solo

Their comforts no concern
Compelled to quell, to sate the yearn
So strong they can’t hear words that warn
Stronger still than the fear that dear mother may learn

Where will teenage lovers go?
When no one can be trusted, so
Where will teenage lovers go tomorrow?

Where will teenage lovers go?
Whither they go?

Sally Sweet
At 7 Chiffon
Saw her through the window
With no clothes on
Sally Sweet
We must get it on
I’ve been watching her
For oh so long

She’s got her pretty pussy
I watched her stroke it’s fur
She fed it cream and sushi
How she made that pussy purr
She knew I was watching her

Sally Sweet
At 7 Chiffon
Saw her through the window
With no clothes on
Sally Sweet
We must get it on
I’ve been watching her
For oh so long

Well one night while she was sleeping
Through her window I crawled creaping
She thought it was all a dream
So I left my honey queen
It was strange how real it seemed

Sally Sweet
At 7 Chiffon
Saw her through the window
With no clothes on
Sally Sweet
We must get it on
I’ve been watching her
For oh so long

She’s a long-haired free-love child
With her sexy escapades
She knows that she drives me wild
Cuz she never pulls down her shades
The time is right for a panty raid
You’d better listen to what I say

Sally Sweet
At 7 Chiffon
Saw her through the window
With no clothes on
Sally Sweet
We must get it on
I’ve been watching her
For oh so long

Sally Sweet
At 7 Chiffon, I love it
Saw her through the window
With no clothes on
Sally Sweet
We must get it on
I’ve been watching her
For oh so long

Track Name: So Turned On
I heard a nasty rumor about you
And it’s got me so turned on
I was sniffing around to discover
About the ways that you get your fun

The boys and I were talking about you
You swim with sharks you’re going to get wet
The smell of chum is so vile and discusting
I caught a rumor when I was dragging my net

So if I show you my friend John DeConqueroo
Would you watch him explode

I ain’t talking no Magna Carta
You’re going to dig on whole new rule
Doing things that you shouldn’t have aught to
I’ll sick the sexy fuzz on you

So would you crown me the king of the playground girl
Before I let go

I hear it’s all true about you
You got me so turned on

So let me harvest that brocoli bikini
The crops going to froze

I’ve been with a few, how about you
You got me so turned on
I heard you want two
Is it true
You got me so turned on
You got me so turned on

I heard a nasty filthy about you
And it’s got me so turned on
I was flipping the dial to discover
About the ways that you get your fun

So box me a slice of that pie a la mode
I’ll take it to go
I’ve been with a few, how about you
You got me so turned on
I hear it’s all true about you
You got me so turned on
You got me so turned on
You got me so turned on
Track Name: Kicking Myself
I'm warning you now
I'm in one of my moods
If you're looking to fight
I've got nothing to lose
Tonight I'll be kicking myself

I'll cover my ears
& hum out of tune
Put me to sleep
I may never come to
Tonight I'll be kicking myself

You never loved me more
Than when I neglected you
When I rejected you
How can I respect you

Don't try and push me
I'm not going to tell
So glad you're concerned
And living in hell
Tonight I'll be kicking myself

You never loved me at all
When I stood inside of you
swallowed my pride for you
Now I despise you

You’ll never stop me I'm kicking myself
You'll never stop me I'm kicking myself
Track Name: Family Tree
Are you my lover
Or my lover
Sometimes I feel like
I’m your brother
Gotta find myself another one day

And if you’re looking
For a father
I don’t recall I
Have a no daughter
Sometimes I wonder why I bother to stay

I’m chopping down your family tree
Too many branches, all of them me

So I took you
To the preacher
Thinking maybe
I could teach you
But it seems I’ll never reach you no way

I’m chopping down your family tree
Too many branches, all of them me

I know you could take
Or leave my loving
I’ve got to find me another child
Before I put a bun in your oven, yeah yeah yeah it’s a natural fact

You know you’ve been just
Like a sister
And when you’re gone maybe
I’ll miss you
Met a new girl and I kissed her today, what’d I say

I’m chopping down your family tree
Too many branches, all of them me
I’m chopping down your family tree
Too many branches, all of them me
I’m chopping down your family tree
Too many branches, all of them me
Track Name: All I Want
I just think of you
And you of me
We should stay together
Can’t you see
All I want to do
Is be close to you
And hold you tightly
Oh so tightly

I was sad
Before you came my way
Hanging around me’s
Like a cloudy day
All I want to do
Is be close to you
And hold you tightly
Oh so tightly

Can’t explain this feeling that I have inside for you
Stay by me I’ll make you happy too
All I want to do
Is be close to you
And hold you tightly
Oh so tightly

All I want to do
Is be close to you
And hold you tightly
Oh so tightly

I just think of you
And you of me
We should stay together
Can’t you see
All I want to do
Is be close to you
And hold you tightly
Oh so tightly

Can’t explain this feeling that I have inside for you
Stay by me I’ll make you happy too
All I want to do
Is be close to you
And hold you tightly
Oh so tightly
Hold you tightly
Oh so tightly
Track Name: Conqueror's Theme
William, William & The Conquerors
Gigging at the go-go
Loading up the van

William, they want to see The Conquerors
Show them what you're made of
Make them understand

The kids will beg for Bonnie-Greg
As Sluggo gives the cue
Man Keith he’s all for you

William, don’t forget The Conquerors
Your reservations waiting
Your plane’s about to land
So hurry if you can
Your wish is our command
Track Name: Why (Live at The Turf Club, St. Paul, 1997)
Tell me why
You don’t love me anymore
Tell me why
Things ain’t like they were before
You just don’t seem to comprehend little baby
Please stop knocking at my door

You know how
I tried so hard not to make you blue
You know how
Something’s happening to what you do
You just don’t seem to comprehend little darling
I’ve got news for you

Well I got a brand new girl now
Who thinks I’m out of sight
And when I’m walking through the park
Yeah I feel alright

Stay away
Can’t you see I’ve got no time
Stay away
Can’t you see I’d be unkind
You just don’t seem to get the picture little baby
I’m never gonna ever gonna change my mind

Stay away
Can’t you see I’ve got no time
Stay away
Don’t you dare treat me unkind
You just don’t take no for an answer little baby
Please I will never change my mind

Why
Why
Why
Why
