about

Satirical, in-your-face, yet somewhat disturbing, JOSS MARS AND THE VICE bridge the gap between rock, indie, progressive and pop conventions. Corruptible by nature, this band is probably not the best source of good moral code; unless you are pursuing a career in arson. JMTV combine catchy hooks, cheeky lyrics, guitar soundscapes and industrious grooves into a stirring pot of eclectic musical edibleness.

The band as Dale Prinsse (Bassist) describes it, ‘shifts between Sex rock on crack and Trollstep’. If some sort of orgy love child between A PERFECT CIRCLE, VELVET REVOLVER, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, MUSE, RED HOT CHILLI PEPPERS, VAST, and TOOL seems like something you would like to hear while love-making, then JOSS MARS AND THE VICE should definitely be on your bedside playlist.

A concept band of unique persona, the first installment, 'Tragedy of the Commons' begins a journey of ambition, capitalism and moral degradation. Whether its melody or groove you’re after, comedy, drama, or something that you want to break stuff to, the eccentric imagination of JOSS MARS AND THE VICE will bring out your inner child….. the nasty one, that kicks people in the shins for giggles.

Track Name: Strawberry Lane
Take me down to Strawberry Lane
Where soldier men eat their cake
Served cold with gold and candy and love
Just fun times

Here where the bad things can be free
And anything you want is at it seems
Come on down sometime my little piggies
And we'll dream dreams
Track Name: Last Sunset
It stole the blood, Made it flood
Watched them run, Killed to the last one
Those bright lights show treasures
Turning kids into killers
Attain the sun…..or fear the burn

I am ready to die, spill the blood and to fly
Scream baby I ain’t done till you’re face down
I’ve been hearing the cries, of those who died in these fires
Scream baby I ain’t done till you’re face down

The world is exploding
The smoke fills my eyes
These stupid piggies won’t stop, till everyone dies
I can’t stand the sight of this massacre
Make me blind…..so I won’t know

Let me fly, Slave to this hunger
I’ll survive, these piggies I will plunder
Got my crown, King of Crimes
Night it comes, no more dreams to hunt
I am lost but I’m not turning back home
My sins are done…. Let consequence come

I am ready to die, got the wolf in my eyes
Scream baby I ain’t done till you’re face down
In the dark they won’t see, you bleed and fall at my feet
Scream baby I ain’t done till you’re face down

The world is exploding
The smoke fills my eyes
These stupid piggies won’t stop, till everyone dies
I can’t stand the sight of this massacre
Make me blind…..so I won’t know

The Last Sunset
(bring it on)

Stop, this ain’t me
But it’s creeping, breathing inside of me
Will it leave, or will it
Slowly taken over me
Well, let’s see
I’ll let it out now
Let the monster free

The Sun burnt out my eyes
And everyone died
I am the darkness where no feelings can prosper
I am the driver of this massacre
I will fly…. Into hell

The Last Sunset
The Last Sunset
And it’s over now
(The troll is coming)
Track Name: Blaze
Come a little closer
[Public Service Announcement]
So Long, so long, so long…love
Blaze, like a wolf you’re the hunter
Gun ‘em down before they do or they’ll cut ya
Mow ‘em all like pedestrians in the street
When they come then they fall at your feet
Burn let the pain consume you don’t fall
God help you if you do
Your only chance is to advance
Nowhere left around or behind to retreat to
So long my love, I’m burning you

(Insanity won’t stop me)
Why can’t we get along, this is just hell
Nobody wants to be your friend
(No Deity will stop me)
Knives and dice, that’s all you will find
Everyone wants to kill you here
(Come get me)
So long my love

Blaze, the world’s gonna fall down and you’re gonna be stuck underneath it all
Blaze, like a fire and burn Rome, let it all fall down with you and watch it burn
Blaze, blaze, blaze, blaze, you’re gonna be stuck underneath it all
Blaze, blaze, blaze, blaze, let it all fall down with you and watch it burn
[Public Service Announcement involving Sodomy]
So Long, So Long, So Long…….Love
(blaze)
Track Name: Nice Dress
Too long in the closet looking
For clothes that look hot with my bling
Got on my nice shoes, so I can cruise and strut like I’m fuct on candy
Check my flow, pimpin like a gangsta,
Not at all like a whore but a popstar
I’ll ride with the tide, cause I’m too cool fool
This booty too damn fine

So come with me and we’ll get on down tonight
We’ll dance all dirty and tease all the cattle tonight
We’ll fornicate like gays without aids and asses on fire
All because what I’m wearing, they’ll keep staring at me in my

Look at me in my nice dress, I must confess
It’s a nice dress that’s why I’m wearing it (so damn pretty)
Let’s put it to the roadtest cause I’m hot
In my nice dress that’s why I’m wearing it (so damn pretty)

Can’t outdo my jiggy you liar
I’m hot like martyrs on fire
Damn flies they on me like sluts on speed
And fat chicks when they’re randy
I’m a pornstar loaded up on crack
I’ll smack it till they won’t smack back
My monkey is getting chunky on luvjuice
And it’s ready to get loose

I’m a sex symbol and you don’t have the game for me
You can see it by my twinkle that you can’t outglitter me
Cuz I’m dolled up hotter than what you’ve seen before
Grind this shit and you will be left wanting more

Look at me in my nice dress, I must confess
It’s a nice dress that’s why I’m wearing it (so damn pretty)
Let’s put it to the roadtest cause I’m hot
In my nice dress that’s why I’m wearing it (so damn pretty)

(Random Improv)
Come now distracted little piggies
Tired from addicted vanity
Come and fuck it all away
In front of the ignorant mirror

Look at me in my nice dress, I must confess
It’s a nice dress that’s why I’m wearing it (so damn pretty)
Let’s put it to the roadtest cause I’m hot
In my nice dress that’s why I’m wearing it (so damn pretty)

Look at me in my nice dress, my nice dress
You know you like it hot, hot, hot
You know you like that

Pretty dress, pretty dress
Track Name: Consumed the Sun
This fire burns like sulphur
And there’s nowhere left to hide
So come now and we’ll watch the world fall apart
Is this what we all share…..Everyone dies….?

The future’s gone and we all disappeared
And there was nowhere left to go
I saw you burn a thousand times
We just sat and consumed the sun

This fire so blind has no goal, just consequence
Screaming for love it cannot see
It burned through it’s path, without ever treading it
Is this what we all share….. Everyone needs…..?

The future’s gone and we all disappeared
And there was nowhere left to go
I sawyou burn, burn a thousand times
We just sat and consumed the sun

Consumed the sun
Consumed the sun

The future’s gone and we all disappeared
And there was nowhere left to go
I saw you burn a thousand times
We just sat and consumed the sun

The future’s gone and we all disappeared
And there was nowhere left to go
I saw you burn, burn a thousand times
We just sat and consumed the sun

Consumed the Sun
