This original Limited edition CD version is now SOLD OUT.

This is the Debut release from guitarist Johny Skullknuckles and his new project The Kopek Millionaires". All the assembled songs were written around 2006/7 (Apart from the cover version).
So here I was with a bunch of catchy tunes pecking at my head, demanding release from the limited confines of my brain. Not suiting any of the bands I worked with I decided to do a total D.I.Y release, and so The Kopek Millionaires were born and "Heartaches & Hardons" is the first jubilant, punktastic set of recordings from the newly wiped down Trolly Dolly Studios and indeed the first item to escape on my very own label JSK Records.

Recorded sporadically during 2012 in the damp crumbling confines of Trolly Dolly studios and joyously smashing these square pag songs into this lovely round hole of an album.

For the guitar Geeks out there;
My main guitar on these sesions was a 2006 Black Gibson Les Paul Standard
Next most used guitar was a 2005 Gibson Les Paul Junior (In TV yellow of course) with a P90. Double Cutaway single pick up
Also an early 1981 Arbiter Les Paul Junior copy with a 1970s Gibson P90 Pick up (In TV yellow of course) Double cutaway, single pick up
And a lovely 1995 White Fender Nashville Telecaster
Amplification was from
A Laney 100 watt all valve head through a vintage Marshall 4x12
A Peavy Windsor 100 Watt all Valve head through a matching peavy 4x12
A Tech 21 Trademark 60 combo
No stomp boxes this time, just used outboard.
A mid 90s Squire P bass took care of the bottom end.

There were also some drums and some big old keyboards and microphones but lets face it, its only the guitars that count.

Track Name: S.F.I.L

Now every stupid word of every love song makes sense to you.
Like you've opened up your eyes for the first time and seen the view.
Every time you see that face you know your skies will turn so blue.
And theres just nothing about it you can do.


And now your happy but your scared.
Because its got you unawares.
While you were not looking.

Your so - Fuckin so fuckin so fuckin . . .
. . . So Fuckin In Love
Track Name: One Broken Heart (Deserves Another)

One broken heart deserves another
Break a heart and youl descover soon, every word I say to you is true.
And you feel so sad when you leave your lover well watch your back when take another its true.
there is nothing you can really do . . .


. . . . Except scream and shout
let your feelings out, tell the whole fucking world
What its all about.
You can hit a man in the street, knock him right off his feet
it wont make you feel much better, better than you did before.

Mid Section;

Its wonderfull when you feel so high and the world is on your side.
but its so easy, yes its so easy, to come crashing down again.
Track Name: Over You

Oh baby I'm over you, when Jack & Jim take me for a spin
I know I'm over you
So sick of myself for letting you in
Now the feelings gone and I'm all alone oh baby I know
I'm really over you

Verse 1;

Everywhere just makes me think of you
and what I do just does the same thing too
And everybody asks me about you
But what can you do.

Verse 2;

I'm just living, living day by day
I'm just getting through this my own way
I just need to get out there and play
Well, what can you say

Oh no I'm not
Track Name: Sometimes (Love Just Isn't Enough)

Sometimes love just isn't enough
To take you to that happy ending
No matter how much love your sending out


When your flying high
And you reach the sky
You get shot down in flames
I ain't naming any names but
Someone told me in a song that
Love is all you need
Well I needed to be stronger
Or maybe just stay longer with you

(Well I needed to be different
Or maybe just indefferent to you)
Track Name: Amphetamine Blue
Ask Knox
Track Name: Six O'Clock In The Morning

Six Ocklock in the morning
Looking out my window at the winter stars
All I need is you babe
If all you needed was me then we could go so far.
But theres so much more in your world than I can give you
And there's nothing here in my world to make you stay


So I'll take a trip into outer space
Come along for the ride, It's a really nice place.
We will go so far and look back on your earth
And laugh out loud at how stupid we were.

Verse 1;

Our orbits entwine
And our stars are aligned
Its beautiful, how brightly we shine


On our trip, into outer space
With you by my side it's a beautiful place
We'll sail on the stars and ride on the winds
And look back in time, back to where it begins

Verse 2;

Now my rockets are ready and I'm ready to rock
All systems go I ain't gonna stop
Set my controlls for the heart of the sun
Here we go 4, 3, 2, 1


Now there's nothing more in your world that I want to give you
And there's nothing here in my world to make me stay.

Chorus End;

So I'll take a trip into outer space
And I'll go all alone cos its a dangerous place
And I'll go so far and look back on your earth
And laugh out loud at how stupid we were
On our trip into outer space
I'll go all alone cos thats my favourite space
And I'll sail on the stars and ride on the wind
When my rockets burn out my adventure begins
Track Name: S.F.I.L Revisited
Now your unhappy and your scared
Cos it's got you unawares
While you were not looking
Theres nothing like nothing like nothing like being in love
And this is nothing like nothing like nothing like being in love
