Bombers was to be the second single from Gary and the band recorded on the 15 April 1978 but this time in a proper studio with a producer Kenny Denton Beggars insisted the band used a producer Gary went along with it, as Gary was just happy with the fact Beggars were committing themselves ever more deeply to the band. Bombers was much on the same punk them as That's Too Bad. Bombers b-side contained two tracks O.D. Receiver and Blue Eyes; these songs proved that Gary could write a decent punk song. 


(Single, 1978)

Look up I hear the scream of sirens on the wall
I see a policeman crying in the back seat of a dying ford
Hotel waiters leave the bedrooms of stars who are far too old
And no-one ever told me that I could be so cold

Bombers flight at zero
Feet, feet
Bombers flight at zero

I see an old man knocked to the ground and beaten by the vicar's wife
And no-one stops to help they're far too busy tring to save their own lives
A tiny girl screams for mother and wanders out into the street
I saw her go down underneath a thousand people's running feet

Bombers flight at zero
Feet, feet
Bombers flight at zero

All the junkies pulling needles from their arms and hope it lasts the night
All the soldiers curse the day they joined the army and prepare to fight
In silent bars, in silent rooms, in silent cars, you hide where you can
And me I know just where you are, you see, I'm a bomber man

Bombers flight at zero
Feet, feet
Bombers flight at zero 

Blue Eyes 
(B-side, 'Bombers' single, 1978)

Well you're pretty quick to say you love me
But I've met your kind before
So I took you twice on our first night
Well, I was never gonna trust you too far

I love your blue eyes
When you cry
I love your blue eyes

You tried to make me crawl far too soon
You should know me better by now
I didn't even feel like trying it with you
I knew that I could break you somehow

I love your blue eyes
When you cry
I love your blue eyes 

OD Receiver 
(B-side, 'Bombers' single, 1978)

I can't see you
I can't hear you
I feel you pumping just beyond my door
I know exactly what
You've crawled her for
Cringe down lower
You're all dressed in grey
Me I'm still breathing
It's just not your day

I hear you whisper like an open grave
OD receiver I am all you crave
Your dying, crying, I can hear you fall
Your bony fingers pushing on my wall

OD receiver

I hear you screaming, well at least you try
Me, I'm stil smiling but I don't know why
I'd call a doctor if I had the time
But I'm so busy with this fix of mine

OD receiver
