DB SCHENKER Kinda like the Blues Brothers do emo. But in a good way. High energy, thick on the horns and sax. It's ska. What you gonna do about it? Favorite track: Things Are Gonna Change.

about

Nice to meet You here, my friend!

Let us introduce ourselves - we are Band MANGO, hailing from Riga, Latvia, spreading great tunes of ska/punk around since 2007.
We’re one of the most common phenomenons in Latvia – taking solid third place just after bad weather and potatoes with cottage cheese.

Band Mango is a real live band – eversince it was established, we’ve emphasized performance and contact with the audience over a time spent in studio, playing numerous shows in various spaces and festivals around Latvia, and also abroad – till now mostly covering Eastern and Central Europe, and Balkan states.

We've released our new EP ''Lifelong Contract''.
It's Band Mango’s second record, just after our first EP ''Ska Punk Invasion'', which was released and spread during our Balkan tour in 2011.

You are the most valuable ingredient to our music and our lives – join us on our new blog, and don’ t forget to support us along your way -on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and other social networks listed aside, by comming to our shows, and why not – grab a song or two!

Cheers!

Sincerely Yours
Band Mango

Track Name: Band Mango - Stars Are Waiting
Memories of all good times
and an oldschool sailor tat
that all whats left
(all whats left)

No family no friends no home
no stories to be told
thats all whats left
all whats left
(all whats left)

Stars are waiting for you x2

A tear is dropping down the old mans cheek
as he sitting on the bench under the rain whooa
(nothings left)
His wife has died a month ago in sufferings and pain
so where's the truth?
Who to blame?

No matter how grey your life seems
and no matter how hard sometimes it is
keep it real till your last fucking breath
and when your soul leaves your sinful body
stars are waiting for it
remember stars are waiting!
Track Name: Band Mango - The Story You Might Be Familiar With
Youre seeing colors much brighter than they are
searching for an exuse to call her
Even though you know it won't get any far,

She brought you pain and misery
destroying all your dreams
You put a coma instead of full stop
cause it's not as easy as it seems

To all your friends
That say shes not the last one,
And you will have a dozen more
Shes the only one you need by now
You know it for sure

Some times has passed and you got used to be alone not telling anyone where are you and for how long you have been gone
And suddenly at half past eight you get a call from her , She says sheр missing you and that shes not completely sure
About the things that happened to both of you and if she could only turn back time
She wouldn't do what she has done and everything would have been fine

She sayd we could be friends and meet and talk and walk hands in hand
She will tell you what happened to her
Bout the boys she fucked and dicks she sucked thats her way to be x2
Track Name: Band Mango - Farawell Song
With pain and sorrow,
I look into your eyes
Unfortunately there is nothing left inside
we were so happy, we had the greatest times
That will forever stay in our hearts

So dry you whining eyes and keep your head up high
And live your live with open heart and open mind
Now it's time to go
Go straight not looking back
Goodbye my darling thanks for things we had

The time has come
To start a brand new life
And leave all memories and all confessions far behind
Don' t stare at me like that
We cannot make it right
We should just throw it out of heart and out of sight
I know it will be hard
But we can make it through
Goodbye my darling, thanks for things you do

And when you' re feeling down,
I'll always be around please know that
And when you're feeling down,
I'll always be around to help you out

So dry your wining eyes,
And keep your head up high
And live your life with open heart and open mind
Now it' s time to go,
Go straight not looking back
Goodbye my darling thanks
For things we had
Track Name: Band Mango - Things Are Gonna Change
Six of us infront of the table all in our thoughts
Tonigh we are drinking heavily cause we are losing what we got
Even though we know you will come back and we will never be betrayed
sence of uncomfortable silence in the air we want your flight to be delayed

Forever

Things are gonna change and never never never gonna be the same again x2

Brought the groove to our heart, the groove to our soul,
We understand you position cause things in our country went out of control
Even though we know you will come back and we will never be betrayed
Sence of uncomfortable silence in the air we want you flight to be delayed

Forever

Things are gonna change and never never never gonna be the same again x2

Brought the groove to our heart
The groove to our soul
We understand the things went out of control
yeah

Things are gonna change and never never never gonna be the same again x2
Track Name: Band Mango - I Stole The Best Years Of Your Life
You said you never loved me and i hate the day we met
I stole the best years of your life
I'm Saying darling i don't really give a fuck
Ill pack my bags get in the van and drive

I adore the late night load outs after parties after shows
That is the reason why i live
If you don't get it bitch then shut the fuck up please
You'll never gonna be mine
Track Name: Band Mango - The Game
This conversation has no end
And i will not pretend
I will always be the one than that loves
and be the one that cares
i have some certain things i trust with all my sinfull heart
And i know that i will always be the one that scared and i
will never be you fucking friend
ill never see one to pretend
always feel the way you love

i don't wanna hear don't wanna see don't wanna feel rumours around you
I don't wanna hear don't wanna see don't wanna feel the you die
i don't wanna hear don't wanna see don't wanna feel rumours around you
Cause if i do, i know i swear to god its true

This conversation faced the end
Theres no need to pretend
All you high hopes placed where you just wanting me to play your game
I still have certain things i trust, with all my sinful heart
And i know that i will always be the one that stays this way

will never be you fucking friend
ill never see one to pretend
always feel the way you love

i don't wanna hear don't wanna see don't wanna feel rumours around you
I don't wanna hear don't wanna see don't wanna feel the you die
i don't wanna hear don't wanna see don't wanna feel rumours around you
Cause if i do, i know i swear to god its true

Don't wanna see the way you cry,
don't wanna see the way you die

Don't wanna see the way you cry
I don't wanna see the way you die

Listen to the words i say life aint hard its easy like a game
But every game got rules and misteries,
But the main is not to lie to yourself
Track Name: Band Mango - Neighborhood
Dedicate this song to the city and the street i belong x2

Concrete blocks are forming mazes on the maps of our souls
They say the walls of different colors are just reflection of our goals
This similarity confuses seems way out cannot be found
i've seen alot of people here, lost in tenses lost the ground

Some are in search of super powers in the clouds of greyinsh smoke
Some are searching truth beneath the bottle cork

Dedicate this song to the city and the streets that i belong x2

neighbourhood has left its traces on the bottom of my heart
This place appears for me to be the most inegral part
The similarity confuses seems way out cannot be found
I've seen alot of people lost in tenses lost the ground,
Some are in search of super powers

Dedicate this song to the city and the streets that i belong x4
Track Name: Band Mango - Life Long Contract
It's been a while
Since my first chords on the guitar
And first lyrics scribbled down inside my pad
I felt this unfamiliar sort of satisfaction
Playing melodies i heard inside my head

That's how i signed my life long contract that will follow me until the day i die
Maybe i will not be able to make history with my music but i say at least i try

The time has passed,
And i met some decent people
With which i'll stick until the fucking end
I felt this unfamiliar sort of satisfaction
Standing on the stage and playing with my band

That's how i signed my life long contract that will follow me until the day i die
Maybe i will not be able to make history with my music but i say at least i try

We live only one life,
So before making some radical desicions
listen to your heart carefully
It will show you the way

That's how i signed my life long contract that will follow me until the day i die.
