Loserville 03:10
I’ve been living where you don’t want to go The people there are beaten down and so low They’ve given up on everything that is good I know I’m getting out of here like I should I learned my lesson I tried but I was missin’ I’m never going back Back to Loserville That melancholy place Where you swallow bitter pills I’m never going back never going back Never going back to Loserville I’m checking out of there forever yeah I’ve had my fill I tried my best to keep you satisfied I only wanted you to be at my side We walked into the club and heads would turn Your old lovers giving us the burn It was a sweet thing But you gave me a fleecing I’m never going back Back to Loserville That melancholy place Where you swallow bitter pills I’m never going back never going back Never going back to Loserville I’m checking out of there forever yeah I’ve had my fill Take me outta your phone book Delete me from your file Don’t give me another look I don’t like your style It was a sweet thing But you gave me a fleecing I’m never going back Back to Loserville That melancholy place Where you swallow bitter pills I’m never going back never going back Never going back to Loserville I’m checking out of there forever yeah I’ve had my fill copyright Thomas A.

Cry Love 02:46
I know you’ve been down Been kicked around And called a clown You’ve been cast aside Lost your pride Been told a lie Cry love - I’ll be there To light your darkness with my flame Put you on your feet again All you gotta do All you gotta do is call my name Just call my name yeah yeah You try to stand alone And battle down The sticks and stones When you got no hope You just can’t cope Gotta grab a rope Cry love - I’ll be there To light your darkness with my flame Put you on your feet again All you gotta do All you gotta do is call my name Just call my name yeah yeah And I’ll be standing on the rock for you Together we will see the tempest through You’ve seen too much pain Too much misery And shame I’ll stay by your side To wipe away The tears you cried

Hurricane 03:32
I woke up to see the stars Swirling all around my head Tried to stand but lost my grip Fell right back into your bed Our love is like a hurricane Drench me in your tropic heat Turn my world upside down Lose my balance sweep me off my feet I thought I was through with love Holdin on was not for me I took pride in being tough Love ‘em leave ‘em as I pleased Our love is like a hurricane Drench me in your tropic heat Turn my world upside down Lose my balance sweep me off my feet BREAK I don’t miss Yesterday All those games I used to play I don’t miss Yesterday Cause it’s all Blown a way My old way of life was not Half the fun it seemed to be My mind was in a prison cell The door blew off you set me free Where we go I cannot tell The future’s not for me to know We will follow with the wind Riding high to where it wants to go I don’t miss Yesterday All those games I used to play I don’t miss Yesterday Cause it’s all Blown away Our love is like a hurricane Drench in me in your tropic heat Turn my world upside down Lose my balance sweep me off my feet copyright Thomas A. Hauck / Olex Music

Frankenstein 03:35
got a pacemaker in my chest, a metal plate in my head My teeth look real but they’re plastic bits, got a rod stuck in my leg I’m Frankenstein - I got nobody to love me Ragin and destroyin beneath the bloody moon Running out of time, I’m howlin’ can’t you hear me Hounds of hell they’re tracking me on the road to wrack and ruin Stiff and sore I walk this land, watching for a bigger bang My feet are armored piercing treads, from my head the wires hang I got a laser guided eye, I’m rusty and I’m greasy Just plug me into your circuit box, baby don’t you try to stop me I’m Frankenstein - I got nobody to love me Ragin and destroyin beneath the bloody moon Running out of time, I’m howlin’ can’t you hear me Hounds of hell they’re tracking me on the road to wrack and ruin Hear me knockin at your door See me breakin down your walls Feel me breathin down your neck Your blood runs cold when I call I’m Frankenstein and I got nobody to love me Ragin and destroyin beneath the bloody moon Running out of time, I’m howlin’ can’t you hear me Can’t you hear me cryin’ Can’t you hear me howlin’ Hear me knockin at your door See me breakin down your walls Feel me breathin down your neck Your blood runs cold when I call copyright Thomas A. Hauck / Olex Music

Bang your head, bust your brain Open up your eyes Bang your head, bust your brain Don’t believe the lies Like Picasso and Van Gogh who painted brave new worlds Albert Einstein showed us how the universe was curled The astronauts went into space where danger greeted them Shakespeare opened up our minds with the power of his pen Let’s cast away the shackles of a failed society Break the bonds of failure and of mediocrity Change our vision from the nineteen-fifties black and white Crown our heads with color put a rainbow in our sight Bang your head, bust your brain Open up your eyes Bang your head, bust your brain Don’t believe the lies Nothing comes without a risk of failure and defeat We may crash and burn against the wall that we will meet No/body rises up who treads along the worn-out path You got to play the odds and use your brain just do the math What worked for mom and dad I got no complaint about They did their thing, so let it be, no need to throw it out But I got something of my own that’s gonna blow your mind I’ll bang yer head and bust yer brain and make your guts unwind Bang your head, bust your brain Open up your eyes Bang your head, bust your brain Don’t believe the lies Explode your view into a million little pieces Chew them spit them out into the universe See the children in a row Teacher knows not where to go Will the world just pass you by Never know the reason why Take these shattered fragments Make them something new Make them something strange and wonderful and true Educating to the test will never get you far Imagination is the only way to raise the bar Magic happens when you dare to go outside the lines Don’t be no square I want to see your shattering designs Bang your head Yeah yeah yeah Bust your brain Yeah yeah yeah

Stand Up 03:25
When you’re getting knocked around all over the place And your back is up against the wall When darkness beats you down into an early grave Reach to me when you start to fall Stand Up Don’t you fall don’t give an inch Hold your ground and Show ‘em what you got Stand up stand up Laying down is never gonna work for you You’ll be trampled to the ancient dust Giving up is never gonna satisfy And if you stick together then you’re gonna rust Stand Up Don’t you fall don’t give an inch Hold your ground and Show ‘em what you got Stand up stand up When the long knives circle round And people cast you down Friends become your enemy C’mon and raise your head up one more time Stand Up Don’t you fall don’t give an inch Hold your ground and Show ‘em what you got Stand up stand up When the wolves are at your door And hope is a painted whore Nothing matters anymore C’mon and raise your head up one more time Stand Up Don’t you fall don’t give an inch Hold your ground and Show ‘em what you got Stand up stand up Copyright 2015 Thomas A. Hauck / Olex Music

about

About Telamor, Tom says, "While I've had years of experience performing live, I'm not interested in being famous. With Telamor I try to keep a very low profile. I'm just trying to make a small contribution to the great tradition of pop rock music. My influences range from Robert Johnson to The Weeknd. If you listen closely, in between you'll hear Hank Williams, Chuck Berry, Otis Redding, the Stones, David Bowie, the New York Dolls, Nirvana, even Taylor Swift--pretty much anyone who wrote a great song and sang it with conviction.

"Working with Warren Babson is a great privilege. Basically, it's my job to deliver to Warren a big box of parts. It's his job to take the parts that he wants and assemble them into a great track. We aim to make classic three-minute pop songs that hit you in the gut and reach you emotionally. My lyrics are simple and direct, just like my guitar riffs and our beats.

"While the songs are simple, the recordings can be quite complex, with a full band sound including multiple guitars, piano, background vocals, percussion, plus the bass and drums. It's all played live in the studio--no sampling or quantizing. If you listen carefully you might hear slight fluctuations in tempo in various instruments. That's because we're going for that live band sound, not a processed synthetic sound. Telamor means real rock and real emotion."

REVIEW in THE NOISE Music New England:
Tom Hauck has once again put together an almost completely solid collection. Opening track “Leap of Faith” hearkens back to the long-ago Atlantics track “Pop Shivers,” with a touch of The Stones’“Satanic Majesty’s Request” thrown in. “Loserville” has a similarly herky-jerky feel, with a hooky, telepathic and electrifying guitar line. “Cry Love” strikes me as the missing link between Deep Purple and The Clash, howsoever unlikely that might seem. “Better Day” evokes memories of The Turbines and Lyres, only abetted by the sharp bass work of Tony Goddess. “Hurricane” has another hook-rich bluesy guitar line. This is followed, appropriately, by a soundalike cover of “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” with requisite sneering vocals. “Frankenstein” is an amusing heavy-duty metal rock novelty. “Bang Yer Head” is lyrically adroit, if musically minimalistic. “Everybody’s Gotta Go” is a folksy chantey; a raggedly cheery tune with a fatalistic message and some trippy, Pink Floyd-esque guitar. “Stand Up” is another Turbines-like anthem with epic guitar straight out of ’60s garage rock. Recommended. (Francis DiMenno)

Review in Babysue.com, June 2016:
Telamor - Telamor 3 (CD, Olex Music, Underground pop), Straight Shots (CD, Olex Music, Underground pop)
Telamor is the one man recording project created by Tom Hauck. (A few guest artists lend their help but this is mostly a one man show.) If you liked the sound of underground recording artists before digital recording made everything sound too sterile and generic, you might want consider checking out this guy's stuff. Hauck writes and records underground pop that's a far cry from what people are listening to in 2016. This isn't retro or vintage music, it's just...different. For the most part, this music just sounds like someone having a helluva time in their home recording studio. Although the sound here reminds us of different bands we've heard, it's kinda difficult coming up with any obvious comparisons. We always appreciate it when folks have the right motivation. And on these albums, Mr. Hauck most certain does. Our favorite cuts include "Leap of Faith," "Better Day," "We Got What It Takes," and "Sophisticated Lady."
