Steve's releases

Original album produced by Bobby Pridden and Steve Gibbons Band at Pump Studios, 1988.

Bonus tracks produced by Steve Gibbons Band.

"B.S.A." has always and will always be my No. 1 party tune. I saw Steve Gibbons live in London in '93. The show faded and he still had not played "my" tune. The people next to me jumped when I suddenly yelled B.S.A.!!

You can also find "B.S.A." on the release "Saints And Sinners". The tune starts with a real 'vrroomm'. Here is the lyric;

"I've never been the kind of guy who likes to travel fast
I like the comfort of a four wheel drive
Cruisin' steady in my Zodiac Convertible doin' about 55.
I looked in my mirror and I saw a team of motorcycles
Coming up behind me fast
When they overtook, I took a look an' nearly died
All this time I'd been taken for a ride by a wild angel
Doin' 95 with my baby on the back

They where ridin' on a BSA, ridin' on a BSA
The only motorcycle that could take her away
Had to be a BSA

I stood on the gas, I was ready for a chase
But the Zodiac didn't want to know
I took her up to 70 but then she started coughin'
And everything started to blow
Red light, green light flashin' on the dashboard
Black smoke coming out behind
The radiator blew and the big ends were knockin'
The whole heap of metal was a reelin' an' a rockin'
I was thinking about shoving it and Bye, Bye Love
Was playing on the radio

I wish I had a BSA, I wish I had a BSA
The only motorcycle that could take her away

I've never been the kind of guy who likes to
travel rough
I like the leisure of a warm saloon
But every time I see a motorcycle pass
I get to feel I'm gonna get one soon
I don't wanna Kawasaki or Suzuki or whatever
Although I know they're pretty fast
I wanna Gold Star 500 Clubman's trim
With those little extra special features built rightin
With a double RT too the same as him
Then I'm gonna bring my baby back

We'll be ridin' on a BSA, Ridin' on a BSA
Three little words could make my life okay
Put me on a BSA
Gotta get a BSA, gotta get a BSA
Three little words that make my life okay
Put me on a BSA"
