When the David Goo Variety Band came to its natural conclusion, David heard of Dunbar's theory and concluded that an audience of exactly 150 could be pretty sweet. Smaller numbers, intimate settings, personal rather than alienating. The 150 Friends Club was born.
In January 2013, Goo called up some of his favourite musicians around London. Immediately, it felt like a good thing – whatever it was.

Track Name: Wasted On An Empty World
Wasted On An Empty World

You and I can make our lives,
Just the way we want them to,
All the world is ours to own,
And our flesh will turn to stone upon our throne,

We had a modest dream but it was beautiful,
We’d split the world into, divide the stars at night,
And everyone would know our names forever,
Everyone would sing our praise forever,
And our flesh would turn to stone upon our throne,

You and I can make our dreams come to life,
Don’t you know that everyone can be on the top now,
Everyone can be number one now,
Everyone can be the one that everyone’s got their eye on,
Everyone is busy pumping iron,

Jealousy is the worst thing to get –
But it’s by far the best thing you can give,
In this world,
This is my gift to this saturated world,
Everything I do is motivated by my desire to corrode you, to one-up you,
See your sorry ass squirming in your second-class seat,
You see, I get off on your pain,
I get off on your disdain,
The cars that I drive,
The women that I ride would be wasted on an empty world,
With no one to watch me and nothing to show,
Yeah I’m wasted on an empty world.

As I walk these streets with my face straight forward I can tell that I’m winning this game.
And I can tell by the looks on your faces that you know that I know that I’m winning this game.
You may ask yourselves, How did I get here?
Well, I’ll tell you: I think about nobody but myself.
You care about anyone else you’ve lost, just remember:
You’re number one now.
Track Name: Airbrushed aka Your Children Will Not Inherit Your Plastic Surgery
Airbrushed aka Your Children Will Not Inherit Your Plastic Surgery

Every magazine I see says the same words to me,
Books and movies they’re the same old rhyme,
I guess that’s why these people drink all the time,
It’s cos their lives are so great, and they need to celebrate,

So come and celebrate with us cos
Everybody’s having a way better time than us,
Way better sex than us,
A better life in general,

Now I must admit I too am guilty of this shit,
When a friend asks my doing I make out my life,
Like it’s parties every day,
Achievements every hour,
Every second bliss, the manna never stops to shower,
The truth while not exactly dark,
Is often pathetic and boring, the opposite of a lark,
Cos my life is only worthy if everybody wants it,
I learnt that from a billboard that made me want to kill hoards,

Hoards of pretty people,
In lingerie,
Looking at us in a kinda sexy kinda airbrushed way.

Everybody’s having a way better time than us,
Way better sex than us,
A better life in general,
You better believe it people.

They’re better than you,
They’re better than me,
They’re better than you better than you better than you.

[Everyone you know, right now, is in a conga line, fucking, and laughing at you].
Track Name: Sod's Law (You Gotta Get Yourself High)
Sod’s Law (aka You Gotta Get Yourself High)

You gotta get yourself high,
Now there’s no drug to be found,
All your friends have left town,
And you don’t have a single pound,
Look around…
Underneath the sofa…
Found your key,
You gotta get yourself high.

The minute you call for life,
The bastard abandons you,
The minute you call for help,
Noone will answer you,
The minute you see the light,
The darkness envelops you,
And the moment you work it out,
You…

Put another tape on,
Waiting for someone to call,
Left another message,
On another ex you’ve fallen,
Back in love again,
Regretting every moment,
Let it pass,
You gotta get yourself high.

I know nothing,
I know nothing about love.
