Magic Bullets’, packed with hard hitting, soaring, snarling, knockout body blows of street-fighting rock ‘n’ roll protest anthems, grabs you by the throat and slams you up against the wall on first listen.

Hungry and the Hunted are a classic power trio, formed by Pakistan born, London East End raised front man Azam Khan in 2006. Azam is a highly accomplished guitarist who began playing in hard rock bands in his early teens before forming and fronting Midnight Special, a blues based rock ‘n’ roll band, formed in the early Noughties. Khan was proclaimed as ‘The new Dalai Lama of Blues’ by TNT magazine, who stated that “Blues music can really go wrong if it’s not played properly, and only the brave or foolish new bands dare to try. It’s early days yet, but going by their new album ‘Moving On’, Khan’s crew have the snarling vocals and exceptional guitar work required.” Midnight Special swiftly established themselves on the UK and European live circuit, headlining Blues Festivals and winning prestigious support slots with the likes of Eric Clapton and Paul Weller.

But Azam began to find the British Blues circuit increasingly confining regarding his ambition and the need within himself to push the musical envelope, at the same time as he was becoming somewhat pissed off and frustrated with the hypocrisy of the so-called ‘War On Terror’. Following the 7/7 bombings, as the finger of suspicion fell firmly on the British Muslim population - coupled with his almost daily experience of stop and searches - he began to feel like an outcast and outlaw within his own beloved London town.

Seeking a suitable, angry, hard hitting musical form to express his feelings, he immersed himself in the music of his youth, when the likes of The Clash, Motorhead and Bruce Springsteen ruled the world. Throwing all his musical influences into the pot – add a dash of The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and Elvis into the mix – he channeled all his energy into writing new songs. ‘Magic Bullets’ was then recorded in London by Azam on guitars and vocals, with Babar Luck on bass, and Tom Meadows on drums, mixed in Berlin and mastered by Ace from Skunk Anansie.

A constant theme running throughout ‘Magic Bullets’ is “A tribute to the spirit of the underdog, a soundtrack for those intrepid souls willing to make a stand for what they believe in, who somehow manage to take on the odds regardless of the consequences” states Azam. Targets in the crossfire of his vision include celebrity culture, the Iraq and Afghanistan excursions and big business.

Every track on ‘Magic Bullets’ hits you smack between the eyes; each rousing chorus comes at you with the intensity of a fighter totally hardwired for battle, who truly does not comprehend the concept of defeat.

P.S There are Lies, Damn Lies and then there are Press Releases, make of the above what you will,mind you, there are some nuggets of truth scattered in there some where..The original Hard Copy Only release was in 2010..

Track Name: This Time
Sunday morning 3am standing outside the city jail
One more chance to start over again
Made up my mind,No turning back
Out in the streets nothings changed
I might learn to forgive but I'll never forget
Did what I did but I got no regrets
And no ones seen the best of me yet!

This time I'm ready for anything!
This time I'll take on anyone
This time I believe in me
Don't need anything to see me through......

Back on the streets it all looks the same
Whores, cops, junkies getting in my way!
Read your mind you think I'm damned
Only way for the lonely and the brave.

This time I'm ready for anything!
This time I'll take on anyone
This time I believe in me
Don't need anything to see me through
Don't need anyone to show me the way......

Looking back I should have seen it coming
All the troubles in my life
Who can tell just where I went wrong
Don't really care this time I got to stay
Stay on the line, stay on the line...yeah!

SOLO

This time I'm ready for anything!
This time I'll take on anyone
This time I believe in me
Don't need anything to see me through
Don't need anyone to show me the way
Cause I can see the writing on the wall
No ones there to catch my fall
I can hear the wolves outside my door
It won't be long, it won't be long
It won't be long.... yeah!
Track Name: Bite The Bullet
Waiting for my fall like to see my crawl
Like to see me bent and broke with my begging bowl
Wipe out their smile ,cut em' down to size
Take no shit, cut no slack I'll walk the crooked line
Come and get me can't hurt me
won't break me, can't take me.... huh x2

For I was born to bite the bullet
Raised to take the falls
Got to see this to the end
Keep on keeping on x3


We dare to cross the line, got to pay the price
Speak our minds seek the truth and feed the fire inside
No one we can trust fight on we must
Samurai in our blood, battles to be won
Come 'n get me can't hurt me
Won't break me can't take me....huh x2

For I was born to bite the bullet
Raised to take the falls
Got to see this to the end
Keep on keeping on x3

SOLO

For I was born to bite the bullet
Raised to take the falls
Got to see this to the end
Keep on keeping on x3
Track Name: Heaven's Gate
Willow weep cry a little tear for me
Don't let anyone know how I'm feeling inside
Twist and turn nowhere left to run
Sometimes all you got left is your pride

What's it all worth in the long run
I gotta pay for my mistakes
Keep on knocking but they won't let me in
Keep me hanging on...by heaven's gate

Talking tough it's a shaky front
Deep inside I'm scared like anyone else
It's no shame to fall flat on your face
Pick up all the piece get back in the race

What can I say all said and done
What can I do no stone unturned
I keep on knocking but they won't let me in
Keep me hanging on....by heaven's gate

SOLO

Cut runs deep it takes time to heel
Got to roll with the punches to get to what is real
It's not shame to fall flat on your face
Pick up the pieces get back in the race

What's it all worth in the long run
I gotta pay for my mistakes
Keep on knocking but they won't let me in
Keep me hanging on...by heaven's gate

SOLO
Track Name: Night Comes Crawling
Stone cold morning,Without any warning
Knocking at your door strong arm of the law
Boys in blue wanna mess with you.. huh!
Looks like your running out of friends
Seems like you're back in the thick of it
Better think twice gotta get wise
Throw away the gun don't be messing with the knife
Out on the mean streets better keep your slate clean
Look for the back stabbers watch out for the dirty deal

Night comes crawling look I'm falling
Night comes crawling looks like I'm falling down
Gotta get out someway somehow
Gotta get right out of here better be gone
So long come on come on......yeah let's do it now

Hey now what you gonna do
Soon enough, gonna have to face the truth
All your dreams gone up in smoke
Hard to tell friend from foe
Word is on the street you're about to go down
Too many people don't want you around
Monkey on your back keeps getting stronger
Don't think you're gonna last much longer

Night comes crawling look I'm falling
Night comes crawling looks like I'm falling down
Gotta get out someway somehow
Gotta get right out of here better be gone
So long come on come on......yeah let's do it now

SOLO

Night comes crawling look I'm falling
Night comes crawling looks like I'm falling down

Track Name: Burn
BURN.....
Back stabbing money grabbing feet dragging piece of slim
get out of my way
Crooked tongue should be hung manufactured shallow junk
I won't play your game
Quick to see the dollar sign,the meal ticket, no pride
You got a one track mind
No mistake I'm on the case gonna put you in your place
It's just a matter of time
I see you you, you doing it again now I know
You'll always be the same
I guess you'll never change ..you got no shame
I know who to blame

I said burn burn burn see you burn x2
Got to burn you're gonna burn burn it all down

GUITAR BREAK

Read about your suicide, fucking parasite see me shed no tears
Kids looking up to you, writing up on you, blond leading the bland
Pictures in the magazine nice clean teeth
I guess you made the grade
Money talks money walks,but all in all you make my skin crawl
I see you I can't let you win
I can't let it roll over I think it's a sin
I can't do it man I can't let you win

I said burn burn burn see you burn x2
Got to burn watch you burn see you burn burn it all down
Track Name: Stole My Breath
God only knows how I met you
Heaven can wait till I get to you
All the time I been running
Pretty soon I'll be winning
I've got to let you know

You came along and you stole my breath
You came along and you stole my breath
You came along and you stole my breath

No one can tell how I want you
No one can feel how I'm feeling
All the times I was running
Soon enough I'll be winning
I gotta let you know

You came along and you stole my breath
You came along and you stole my breath
You came along and you stole my breath

Picking up the pieces of my broken heart
Trying to make some kind of brand new start
But it's so hard when you're all alone
I know that I'm falling
Can't you hear my heart calling

You came along and you stole my breath
You came along and you stole my breath
You came along and you stole my breath

All the times I was running
Soon enough I'll be winning
I gotta let you know

You came along and you stole my breath
You came along and you stole my breath
You came along and you stole my breath
Track Name: A Matter Of Time
Sending out an SOS into the heart of loneliness
Cause I've been there and I know the score
Who's to say if you're right or wrong
If hands of fate don't play your song
Better walk that walk instead of talking about it!

I'm gonna be alright it's gonna work out fine
It's just a matter of time it's just a matter of...

Rage hard, don't loose your grip
Move fast shoot from the hip
And if you stumble you better get up
This world don't give a damn nobody's gonna give you a break
If you want it you better go out and get it!

I'm gonna be alright it's gonna work out fine
It's just a matter of time it's just a matter of...

MIDDLE 8

Some things we can't choose
Down the line we got to pay them dues
Hey! What you gonna do?

I'm gonna be alright it's gonna work out fine
It's just a matter of time it's just a matter of...

OUTRO

Sometimes.... not enough not enough
Sometimes.... not enough for me x2

Better learn to dig in deep ,put your heart on your sleeve
Up to you to walk the line, only you can roll the dice
Better learn to take them blows otherwise you will never know
If the price is worth the pain ,have you got what it takes..
Track Name: Laughing At The Hurricane
Raised up on the backstreets took what we could get
Taking all our chances never looking back
Some are born with everything handed on a plate
Then there is the other kind making our own breaks
I said
Looking like an outlaw taking like a thief
Blues is my companion troubles running deep
See me laugh at the hurricane taking on the storm
All the times I got kicked around only made me strong
I said
Calling out to the angels hear my plea got to tell you I'm in need
See it all now slipping away got to make my get away
What I say....
Like a man on a mission don't think I can rest
Crazy dreams running in my head pushin me to the edge
See me laugh at the hurricane taking on the storm
All the times I got kicked around only made me strong
I said
Calling out to the angels hear my plea got to tell you I'm in need
See it all now slippin away got to make my get away
What I say..
What I said..
What are you gonna do now when it all comes down

Yeah yeah...if you got the will to see it through
I believe thats what you got to do
Here comes the hurricane..
Track Name: Hungry And The Hunted
See me dancing on my grave, salvation it's too late
Road forever running blind who can tell what we'll find...yeah
You know me ,you know my kind ,heart on sleeve soul on line
Must compete keep an eye on the score
Hit the hammer let it roll
Better hit the hammer and let it roll

Hungry and the hunted gotta keep on running
Every time we rise we got the guts the will to survive x2
Alright

GUITAR SOLO

Reckless like the howling wind don't you tell me I can't win
Blood sweat toil and tears, battle scares earned down the years...yeah
You know me you know my kind heart on sleeve soul on line
Must compete keep an eye on the score
Hit the hammer let it roll
Better hit the hammer and let it roll

Stay hungry and the hunted gotta keep on running
Every time we rise we got the guts the will to survive x4
Do what we can we will survive
Track Name: Always Outnumbered Always Outgunned
I got pains in my heart that just won't heal
In life nothing ever comes cheap
Stranded in the ghetto but I'm looking at the stars
Can't go back cause I've gone too far

No matter what I do no matter where I turn
Always outnumbered always outgunned
Realise I've been there before
Hard times on the killing floor

Feel like a riot tear up this place
Burn it all down start over again
I've been neaten blooded broken n' bruised
When you've got nothing you got nothing to loose

No matter what I do no matter where I turn
Always outnumbered always outgunned
Realise I've been there before
Hard times on the killing floor

I can't tell I don't know just what I need
I can't say I don't care what tomorrow may bring
It doesn't matter now it's nothing to me x2
It means nothing to me it mean nothing at all
I'm down in the street running with the outlaws

GUITAR SOLO

Realise I've been there before
Hard times on the killing floor

No matter what I do no matter where I turn
Always outnumbered always outgunned
Realise I've been there before
Hard times on the killing floor
Track Name: Till The Morning
One more road one more town
Just another heartbreak don't let it get you down don't let it get you down
Ghosts on the highway calling out your name
Don't even think about it don't you look back
You can never go back

Got to make it to the morning
Trying to make it till the morning
If I can make it to the morning
Trying to make it till the morning

Gamblers and outlaws on a one way ride
Seek out their fortune into the arms of the night
Never know what you'll find

Got to make it to the morning
Trying to make it till the morning
If I can make it to the morning
Trying to make it till the morning

For who the bell tolls only time will tell
Got to keep your nerve now be quick or be dead
Forgive but don't forget

SOLO

Got to make it to the morning
Trying to make it till the morning
If I can make it to the morning
Trying to make it till the morning

OUTRO

Do what I gotta do do what I gotta say
I got to make it to the morning light
