Quebec City duo Lunasam have just released a single, “The Redhead”, with musicians from Germany, the U.S and the UK. The single is available on all the streaming services through:

https://lunasam.hearnow.com

Video on Youtube is here.

Lunasam are Bertrand and Robert, two brothers who have been recording music together since 1979 and are now focusing on producing. Their first 7 inch single was released in 1981, and this is their first new official offering since their self-titled indie CD in 2008. “The Redhead”, originally created by Bertrand, features vocals by British belter Dave Edwards. UK bassist Tony “Redfish” Gee also provided the bulk of the lyrics. Guitars are provided by Eric Rosenthal and Robert, the latter responsible for the instrumental break and synthesizer solos that follow. The bouncy song has a decidedly retro futuristic feel and mindset, with plenty of synths and surprises, and has been described as something The Cars would have loved to have penned in the late seventies.. Yet didn’t.

The credits for “The Redhead”:

Bertrand (Quebec City, Canada): song and theme, Jupiter 8, ARP 2600 and Mini V3 synths, drums, arrangement, mix and production

Robert (Quebec City, Canada): break and last verse guitars, Wasp synth

Eric Rosenthal (Xenia, Ohio, USA): lead and rhythm guitars

Tony “Redfish” Gee (Leighton Buzzard, United Kingdom): bass

Minime (Dingenskirchen, Germany): chorus synth

Dave “The Singer” Edwards (Rugeley Staffordshire, United Kingdom): vocals

Lyrics: Dave, Redfish, Bertrand

In the next few months, Lunasam are promising to release six singles as a trio with American female vocalist Kim Noble, leading up to a compilation EP next year.

Lunasam “Risky Whiskey”

Risky Whiskey

If it makes you misty…

There’s no mystery,

To me, she’s ancient history.

Huffing clown, puffing clown,

Blow his ugly house down.

Homeless downtown Motown…

In a green hospital gown!

Purge the surge of courage,

Running, he’s on the verge,

the urge to diverge.

Resist the urge to merge

With the dirge!

Upwards, the dirigible…

Onwards I urge.

Nowhere bound,

Nearly drowned.

Rebound around:

Leper colony leprechaun.

Ragdoll crime,

Anytime and no time…

Any dime on the dime,

Anytime ragdoll time.

Cash in, drop out, hit the zone.

Think hard, eat a sandwich, buy a home.

Robert, photo: Ollie

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New song by Lunasam: “The Mansion”

Listen to “The Mansion” by Lunasam

(dedicated with love and appreciation to Bruce Joyner)

In the mansion nobody mentions

In dimensions hitherto unfantomed

Where man shuns man

There is a great unknown collection

Terrible things happen there

That nobody knows about

Because it’s not spoken of

No one has written of this

Terrible abuse, who stands accused ?

No one

Does a Dracula Jesus live there?

Surely there if anywhere

But how could I know

Sitting here in my chair

Over the hill

Over the edge of the hedge

Drawbridge up

Over the moat

Walk the tightrope

A circle of hooded figures

Paroxysmal grimaces

Not a smile but a rictus

Hissing horrors conjured

Madness chaos conjoined

Is this the smoke of my imagination

Or is it real ?

New song by Lunasam: “Drive Fast”

Listen to the new song by Lunasam: « Drive Fast »

Drive Fast by Lunasam (lunasam.com)

(Did you guys plug in my microphone ?)

No-good questions get no-good answers
Keep it, peek it, speak it, say it and slay it

Somewhere between bad at everything and good for nothin’
Somewhere between bad at everything and good for nothin’

Gone, gone, young gun client
Gone, gone, young gun client
Gone, gone, young gun client
Gone, gone, young gun client

Oooh yeah !

Big bank makes a buck
The little guy is outta luck
Thunderstruck
You, the listener outside my window
The one I smashed fifteen minutes ago

Snakes in heat, yeah
Shedding skin like crazy
Bouncing back from a bad dream
On the rubber sheets

The bell swings
Ring a ling bing a ding a ding
The bell swings
Rama lama ding dong, Rama lama ding dong

Oooh !

All right !

Gone, gone, young gun client
Gone, gone, young gun client
Gone, gone, young gun client
Gone, gone, young gun client

Blackjack on the top
Dive to the bottom
Rise to the top

Drive fast
Beat the cop
Get away and make the drop
Oh yeah, and get a soda pop

Thinking, sinking, drinking
Drunken ship’s a-sinkin’
Wobbely gobbly bobbely gook
I got you with a mean left hook

Gone, gone, young gun client
Gone, gone, young gun client
Gone, gone, young gun client
Gone, gone, young gun client

New song by Lunasam: “I Didn’t Do It”

Click here to listen to the new tune by Lunasam: “I didn’t do it”

I didn’t do it

No, no

I didn’t do it

No way, hey

It wasn’t me

I didn’t do it

No, no

I didn’t do it

Was busted before

Was like that when I found it

No wait

Maybe it works now

Nah, s’broke

Maybe pehaps

I didn’t do it

No, no

I didn’t do it

Used to be good

Great even

Now not so much

I didn’t do it

No, no

I didn’t do it

No way, hey

Is the battery dead?

Maybe

Got another one in the remote

No wait

I can go buy some

Pack of AA battery

Lend me a twenty?

No money?

Oh damn

It’s dead, man

Try playing with the wire

Sometimes that works

President was talkin’ on TV

I got distracted

It’s his fault
