about

Inspired by the roots of Cajun funk, Second line and Chicago blues, Nothin' To Say is a production of blood, sweat and good times over three years.

Featuring some of the best players Manchester has to offer for our unique groove, we bring you piano musings with a backbone powerhouse rhythm section and a hit of hot sauce that punches you with the horns.

The horns? well that'll be The Brass Monkeys, THE leading section of brass this side of Louisiana! and to complement their bite, the female vocals of Tosin & Rachael Jones deliver sweet like molasses harmonies. Along the way we picked up a few other special guests and they helped us make it a bit more awesome.


'Dr. Tid & The Triple Eights started life back in 2009; a few hundred gigs, festivals, radio slots, our first album, an EP, and a change of lineup later, we present this album. Its not been an easy road, but it's one that I hope you find just as thrilling in the music.'

Dr. Tid - Piano, Vox & stuff.

Track Name: Louisiana
I've been to New York,
Been To Cali too.
I've been to Texas,
and Baton Rouge.
One think I thought when play this piano.
I've always wanted to see New Orleans, Louisiana

You know it's where they got the Big Chiefs.
It's where I hear they got the blues,
I hear it's where they keep the Doctor,
They all about Mardi Gras too

Set in a little on the south coast,
Got Mississippi as a vain.
Louisiana only met you once,
We'll see each other again.

You know they got that hot sauce.
They Second Line up in the streets,
I hear its crazy on the out skirts,
That's where you find them Cajan beats.

So roll a little on the snare drum,
They got Joanna in the groove.
Louisiana only met you once, but I'm in love with you.

It's like a party on the water,
Everybody's in the groove.
From the 'Quarter' to the Treme.
From Lafayette to Baton Rouge.

They dancing in the streets,
They dancing on the roofs.
Louisiana only met you once, but I'm in love with you.

Got it going, Got it going good until the morning light.
Everbodys grooving and the city's hot,
We're gonna dance till we feel alright,
Dancing to the rhythm, Dancing to that groove,
Louisiana only met you once but I'm in love with you.
Track Name: Find Your Groove
You've got to find your groove,
The kind to see you through,
And when around you it all hits the fan,
Ride it out and batten down.
Because when your troubles collide,
Just take it in yo stride,
Because if you worry too much,
It's gonna work you right in the ground.

When your energy has gone,
You need a place to call home?
Just call me up, you know that you can?
Call collect, and I'll understand.
Oh just take it from me,
There's more to life more to see,
And you don't do it today,
You'll regret it when you get old.

Bide your time,
Push your luck,
Do everything you can to survive.
Because if it takes your dreams,
Trying to make all this time,
Live a little man be a live!!

If you compromise your goals,
You know it won't take long,
Before they push you too far.
They gun work you right in the ground
They gun work you right in the ground
They gun work you right in the ground.
Track Name: Nothin' To Say
I got myself involved,
In an incident last night.
Something wild went down
I asked my Lawyer for advice
He said "I'll be there in 20, but this time you got to pay"
Until I see your docket,
Tell 'em you got nothing to say.

Chorus
Got nothing to Say.
I got nothing to say.
'He got nothing to say'.
I got nothing to say.

Locked in cell block 4,
Outta sight is outta mind.
It's been a night in here.
Losin' sleep, Doin' time

I cant remember shit
Just that 'Jack' had, had his way.
What should I do now?
Tell 'em you got nothing to say.

It all came flooding back.
All that whiskey on the rocks.
We all took to drinking,
Just had one too many shots.
Journey home at best is hazy,
Found facedown on the freeway.
Officer take me home?
"I'd advise you got nothing to say".
Track Name: Doctor
Come on in,
Pull up a chair,
Why don't you make yourself feel at home?
What's wrong with you? This is the doctor baby you're talking to,
What you doing taking all those pills?
The doctors got the cure for all your ills.
Stay the night, I'll make sure you feel treated right.

But if you leave and you go and break my heart,
Then tonight there's no doctor on call.

What you doing running all your schemes,
Did you find baby it's all worth it?
Time is running out, you've got nothing left to shout about.
Why don't you stop your games baby,
Try to find the cure,
I'll reach out to you,
Help to softened up your fall,
Stay the night, I'll make sure you feel treated right.

But if you leave and you go and break my heart, then tonight there's no doctor you can call.
Track Name: Time To Go
There's times when you should stay,
There's times when you should go,
Baby I think it's time you learnt that code,
When I smile and give you a wink,
Run my hand across your drink,
Baby it's time to go.

Don't talk about the host,
Play it cool and keep it safe,
Baby you don't know who's entourage this is.
When I smile look over at you,
Look like you need me like lovers do,
Baby it's time to go.

Try to make the best of a bad situation,
Learn to work the party without causing complications,
Small talk it's a killer and you don't really want to have two stay till four,
Baby say no more.
You want to go just let me know,
We can blame it on my work.
Got an early start tomorrow, damn look at that something on my shirt.
Get out of this dive come with me baby take it a drive.
And if you change your mind,
A nightcap will suffice,
Any time,
Baby it's your place or mine.

Now I know you love to mingle,
And I know you love to talk,
But when it gets too much baby we can book.
I'll keep looking out for your trouble,
And then I'll interrupted your flow,
Saying,
Baby it's time to go
Track Name: 5 Iron
Two drops of hot sauce
And I'm yours
Hit me with a finger of bourbon,
Get lost in zydeco.
Two-step Louisiana funk and it's hot.
No kings or J's to play I put my triple 8s down and I lost.

They dragged me through the parking lot
Then they took my car
They Hit with a 5 iron
Left me down
They hit me with a 5 iron
Took me out

Stop my card came up
The timing was right.
Should have quit while I was ahead.
Instead I raised and rolled that die
Got a hard line fever
Y'all see I play to win
I've put a lot in boy, so just sit back down and help me win my shit again.

They dragged me through the parking lot.
Then they took my car.
They Hit with a 5 iron
Left me down
They hit me with a 5 iron
Took me out

Know when to raise,
Know when to fold,
Know when to hold your cards,
Know when to call.
I know this song lets change the beat.
like a 38 pressed to my head.
And I'm sinking in trouble again.
I Tried to leave all causal like,
But people stopped and starred.
These guys were right behind of me and caught me unawares.
They dragged me through the parking lot and threw me down the stairs


They Hit with a 5 iron
Left me down
They hit me with a 5 iron
Took me out
They Hit with a 5 iron
Left me down
They hit me with a 5 iron
Took me out
Track Name: Half Way There
I heard it on the strip, I read it on the wall, I gotta get myself moving away from St Pauls.
Because I'm lost, and I'm halfway there, my mind is a million B roads straight to nowhere.

Flaunt it while your hot, shake it while you can, get yourself up and moving like you're the Running man.
Because he was lost but he's half way there. My mind is a million B roads straight to nowhere.

You know,
What I want.
What I need.
Maybe I'm losing my mind.
I know,
What you want,
What you feel,
Baby just take me.

Down easy, take me down easy Tonight.
Down easy baby losing my mind.

I got time...
For you to get to know me.
Some much time...
For you to get to know me.
Or am i losing my mind?,
I can't really tell.
You've taken all that I am,
But your not taking my will, will will!!!

Flaunt it while your hot, shake it while you can, get yourself up and moving like you're the Running man.
Because he was lost but he's half way there. My mind is a million B roads straight to nowhere.
Track Name: Follow Me
Not everybody gets a second chance,
I played my cards now let me see your hand?
Something is changing the mood don't feel right?
i leaned to read I know those warning signs.

Breaking it down I feel the problem is me,
I've not much to say, you knock me down to my feet.
Follow me. Follow me.

You always seem to play the righteous hand,
I always leave the situation to chance.
Don't try to think roll the dice that I got,
You always say I played the joker a lot.

Breaking it down I feel the problem is me,
I've not much to say, you knock me down off my feet.
Now while I'm down here baby I'll take the whole world with me,
Follow me. Follow me

She's out of my mind,
Still in my head,
I'm breaking it off
She's out of my mind,
Still in my head,
I'm breaking it off.

Breaking it down I feel the problem is me,
I've not much to say, you knock me down off my feet.
Now while I'm down here baby I'll take the whole world with me,
Follow me. Follow me

She's out of my mind,
Still in my head,
I'm breaking it off
She's out of my mind,
Still in my head,
I'm breaking it off.
Track Name: Between You & Me
Don't say you know something before you put two cents in.
Or people just will claim you're a fool.
Just keep, in mind, to say something that they'll like.
And you'll come off much better than you do
And on with the long nights and lamps that guise and daylight
I bet you haven't slept I'm quite (sure)
Between you and me and those doctors that you see
You ain't getting no better at all

Gotta find piece of mind that can help you stay sane
Know what I know
And I know that the game has changed it aint what it's been
They say yeah, yeah I know what you mean

So On with the faking. The contracts for the taking
I guess you got your priorities
Sleep and time,
Overrated and undermined,
And you ain't getting no better I see

Gotta find piece of mind that can help you stay sane
Know what I know
And I know that the game has changed it ain't what it's been
They say yeah, yeah I know what you mean
Its Had its time.... All this time
