about

Adrian T Bell, lead singer with the critically acclaimed, award winning Czech rock band The Prostitutes will release his debut solo album DIFFERENT WORLD in February 2014.

Newcastle upon Tyne is the birth place of this extraordinary vocalist who has featured on no less than three dynamic albums. The first two are Get Me Out Of Here and Hometown Zombies which topped the Czech Republic charts were followed by Deaf To The Call which was produced by Youth.

For Different World, Adrian teamed up with the rising star of the UK music scene, producer Michael Rendall, whose previous work includes Killing Joke, Paul McCartney, Gyuto Monks of Tibet, Rodger Waters of Pink Floyd and Echo and the Bunnymen. The album is a generously arranged collection of songs whose themes include maturing, loving, falling and rising, experiencing private revolutions and leaving a trace behind.
The album’s title refers to the times when a man would express a strong opinion about a subject he knew nothing about as a point of honour, when your dad would give you clip and mum would send you outside until dinner time. And, when songwriting was admittedly done with a full heart rather than as a marketing business model.

Track Name: Mindless State of a Homeless Man
Mindless State of a Homeless Man

I get this strangest feeling
When I look out to the west
You say I’ve got no money
And no one here thinks it’s funny

You said you never heard
The words how they sit
By the prophets they were growing
We had no way of knowing

Listen to the words you want to listen too
To the mindless state of a homeless man
He doesn't even know where he's coming from
And everything you value once again
How it feels when it’s plunging
To the lowest left you wondering

Don't listen to the words you say
It's the mindless state of a homeless man
Don't listen to the words you say
It's the mindless state of a homeless man

I never look at anyone but you
As you walk every day now passed the bank
Where you pray
Can you whistle to the misty tunes
Of a song that you made up
When you were on the way down?

Don't listen to the words you say
It's the mindless state of a homeless man
Don't listen to the words you say
It's the mindless state of a homeless man

Will you recognize me in the end?
Where you walk every day on the cloud where you play
Maybe one day when we meet once again
You will smile as we say let’s be friends for the day

Don't listen to the words you say
It's the mindless state of a homeless man
Don't listen to the words you say
It's the mindless state of a homeless man
Track Name: Just Wanted You To Know
Just wanted you to know

I know I haven't been around now lately
I’ve been a million miles away
yeah
I know that I’ve been feeling down now lately
I’ve been hiding in my cage

There are lots of things I take for granted
And there are things that I should say
I should shout it from the highest tower
But you know it’s not my way

Don't think that I’ve lost interest
Don't think that I don't love you

It’s so difficult for me to tell you
I just wanted you to know
I find it hard expressing my own feelings
I just wanted you to know

Don’t want to wait until you’ve gone to tell you
Because I know that it’s too late
But you must know I find hard to tell you
Trust someone else with my own fate


It’s so difficult for me to tell you
I just wanted you to know
I find it hard expressing my own feelings
I just wanted you to know
It’s so difficult for me to tell you
I just wanted you to know
I find it hard expressing my own feelings
I just wanted you to know

Don't think that I’ve lost interest
Don't think that I’ve lost interest
I think about it all the time

Don't think that I’ve lost interest
Don't think that I’ve lost interest
I think about it all the time

It’s so difficult for me to tell you
I just wanted you to know
I find it hard expressing my own feelings
I just wanted you to know
It’s so difficult for me to tell you
I just wanted you to know
I find it hard expressing my own feelings

I just wanted you to know
Track Name: Viva La Revolucion
Viva La Revolution.

Well inside there is a brave man
And he is trying to get out
Knowing that you should say something
But this time you let it pass
You say next time will be different
As the shame it does recede
And you go about your daily life
Hate yourself for you have failed

There’s a fire in your belly
Being stoked by years of blame
Now it’s time that you did something
Or else you will go insane
Well the door it is now open
And the way is never clear
A leap of faith is needed
Or be crippled by your fear

Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución.
Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución.
Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución.
Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución.

Don't waste precious self-awareness
On ideas that don't make sense.
Don't be burdened by your worries
It’s your mind just playing games
It appears to you a monster
When in fact it is a mouse
Don't think that you can avoid it
Or escape into your house

Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución.
Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución.
Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución.
Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución.

As you see I’m just a normal kind of guy
Who sits round here
Who is getting pretty tired with the idiots and games
Will you take me as a way sign
I’m just pointing out the fact
You have to stand up for yourself
And now it’s time to act

Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución.
Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución.
Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución.
Viva la Revolución. Viva la Revolución.
Track Name: Different World
Different world

When I was a little kid
I used to look up at the sky
Watching clouds floating by
When I was a little child
I used to watch the birds up high
And then I’d wonder why

Looking back I know it's gone
Looking back I know it's gone

It’s such a different world to what it was
It’s such a different world to what it was

When I was a little kid
We used to be out all the time
Playing games
When I was a little kid
We'd break windows run a mile
That’s how it was.

Looking back I know it's gone
Looking back I know it's gone

It’s such a different world to what it was
It’s such a different world to what it was

Dad would give you a clip because of the lip
Mum would just sigh and start to cry
And send you outside till dinner time
Dad would give you a clip because of the lip
Mum would just sigh and start to cry
And send you outside till dinner time

It’s such a different world to what it was
It’s such a different world to what it was
It’s such a different world to what it was
It’s such a different world to what it was
Track Name: Realize
Realize

If you look out from the corner of your eyes
Maybe you'll meet the person who will take you high
If you step out of yourself for just a moment
you'll catch a glimpse of the real me

And there’s this song inside your head
That you can’t quite realize
And there’s this song inside your head
That you can’t quite realize

If you stop the world for just a moment and a half
And imagine yourself on a different path

And there's this song inside your head
That you can’t quite realize
And there's this song inside your head
That you can’t quite realize

And there's this song inside your head
That you can’t quite realize
And there's this song inside your head
That you can’t quite realize

Come on and step into my universe
Come on and step into my universe
Come on and step into my universe
Come on and step into my universe
Track Name: Dance With Me One More Time
Dance with me one more time
Don't want to let you go
But when you’re free
You’re so much more happy
I thought it long ago
When I see your face
You’re better off laughing

But will you dance for me one more time
But will you dance for me one more time

I never thought I’d see the day
When I’d say you’re better off without me
I never thought I’d see your face
Light up so much
Now it’s all over

But will you dance for me one more time
But will you dance for me one more time

I thought we had it all
But what do you know
Some things just don't work out
Track Name: Blew My Mind
Blew my mind

Well I saw you in the moonlight
Floating past, you’re on your own
You pretended not to notice
But I’m hypnotized and gone

I convinced I’m not mistaken
But I’ve made mistakes before
Could you please confirm my suspicion
This time I do not think that I am wrong

Well you blew my mind now sister
Well you blew my mind now sister
Well you blew my mind
Forgive me if I thought I was the one

Were you Just sent to tease me
Were you just sent for sin
Am I destined for rejection
My mind is helpless
My focus gone
So the man is set to follow
He thinks he’s the only one
Brought to his knees by this rejection
The torture goes on and on


Well you blew my mind now sister
Well you blew my mind now sister
Well you blew my mind
Forgive me if I thought I was the one

As you walk up to meet him
A kiss and the magic it has gone
I am back in this asylum
Destined to wander on and on

As you walk up to meet him
A kiss and the magic it has gone
I am back in this asylum
Destined to wander on and on

Well you blew my mind now sister
Well you blew my mind now sister
Well you blew my mind
Forgive me if I thought I was the one
Track Name: Nothing Happened
NOTHING HAPPENED

She was just a young girl
When she came out for a ride to this old city
She was looking for a bed to lay her head
There’s one place left in town
She walked right in to the Angels Bar
And played some pool
With one armed shark called Larkin
Who let her win his money
Because deep down he had a heart of gold

Absolutely nothing happened at all
She wasn't raped or gang banged
By a bunch of motorcycle maniacs
Absolutely nothing happened at all.
She was never in any kind of trouble at all.

She packed her bags in the morning
Tiptoed out of the room and she was gone
She jumped on to a greyhound bus
And headed south west under a deep blue sky
A weird looking guy sat next to her
And asked her where she was going
And she said kind of far
He said take care there lady
Because you know things can go bad on the road

Absolutely nothing happened at all.
She wasn't raped or gang banged
By a bunch of motorcycle maniacs
Absolutely nothing happened at all.
She was never in any kind of trouble at all.

Nothing happened at all
Nothing happened at all

She grew up and had some kids
And had a happy husband
Who didn't beat her he was nice to her
And she grew into an old lady and said things like
I would like to see the grand children
And just before she died when she was 85 on her death bed

Absolutely nothing happened at all.
She wasn't raped or gang banged
By a bunch of motorcycle maniacs
Absolutely nothing happened at all.
She was never in any kind of trouble at all.
Track Name: The Train Moves On
Train moves on

Two witches are siting and bitching about guys
A man whose face lined he once was a junkie
A shimmer of rays through dark northern skies
Enter the tunnel as a baby it cries

And the train moves on and the train moves on
And the train moves on and the train moves on

A woman she sits with sunglasses eyes
The bully returns stinking of nicotine
He looks at me menacingly, turns to her and smiles
And whispers he's sorry as she smiles at their child

And the train moves on and the train moves on
And the train moves on and the train moves on

I knew from the minute that I saw his face
That he was the last person I wanted to sit with me
He opened his mouth and words upon breath
Destined to sting me and bore me to death

And the train moves on and the train moves on
And the train moves on and the train moves on

The angelic waitress she floats down the aisle
Her perfume it lingers as she pours out the coffee
She winks at me as she wipes off the stain
As we slice through the rain tempest into bright light again

The angelic waitress she floats down the aisle
Her perfume it lingers as she pours out the coffee
She winks at me as she wipes off the stain
As we slice through the rain tempest into bright light again

And the train moves on and the train moves on
And the train moves on and the train moves on
