Le boss de CRABE RECORDS est de retour sous son alias REMI L pour un nouvel album 100% Do It Yourself, réalisé, produit et joué à la maison.

Plus de doutes possibles, ce type a été adolescent dans les années 90 : déluge de fuzz, structures étranges, incursions psychés, paroles surréalistes...

La matière première de cet album est née de son amour inconditionnel pour les guitares électriques et les pédales de fuzz, par ailleurs listées consciencieusement dans le livret cassette, chanson par chanson.

Au programme de cette troisième cuvée : des bananes volantes, des canards, Lionel Richie, des grenouilles géantes et un tigre blanc…


CRABE RECORDS' boss is back under the alias "REMI L" for a new delivery, 100% Do It Yourself, recorded, performed and produced at home.

No further doubts, this guy was a teenager in the nineties: walls of fuzz, strange song structures, psychedelic hints, surrealistic lyrics...

Most of this material is born from his unconditional love for electric guitars and fuzz pedals, which are listed scrupulously inside the cassette insert, song by song.

On this 3rd effort menu: flying bananas, ducks, Lionel Richie, gigantic frogs and a white tiger...

Influences: King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard / Thee Oh Sees / The Beatles / Lionel Richie / Jason Molina


released March 6, 2020

Lyrics & music : Rémi Lavillonnière

Track Name: Flying Standard Tuning Banana part 1
Flying standard tuning banana

You never wanted just to say goodbye
We had to order some food and take a nap
yeah, it seems all legit now

Watching the birds climbing down the hall
This is the time were sunny days
keep all of us warm
Is this the end of times?

Flying Standard Tuning Banana

Cracks in the pavement make the fools look down
The sky is full of flying things and roundabouts, yeah
My arms are still too short

Oh see those lights Oh see those lights
Coming in pairs as thunder strikes
This is the end of our time
My legs are way too short
Track Name: Japanese Flavors
Everything turns grey like elephant skin
It’s the month of may when the wheels start to spin

Japanese flavors, listen to these
Japanese flavors

I’m going to the sea with a gigantic frog
Nobody sees me
The beach is obscured by the fog

Japanese flavors, listen to these
Japanese flavors

The man with the ugly shoes
is standing in front of me
his eyes are blue and green
and he’s crawling out of the sea

Everything turns grey
Track Name: The Invisible Blanket
Once in a while I'm allowed to see the sky
With clouds and rainbows, birds and planes and stars

I plug a little red box and sparkles start to fly

Swirls of fire, swirls of cream
Tumbling up and down with the gigantic wheel

Cracks in the sky swans in the swamps
Mold on windows fried eggs on the pan

Have you see the old lady
Bringing flowers to the bees
Chanting an ancient song
Wearing an old dressing gown

Ducks in the clouds ducks in your mind
Oven is closed drust is getting wild

Colorful pastries and enchanted wines
Sugarcoated trees growing under the mighty
Northern sky

The secret is inside the invisible blanket
Track Name: Hello (is it Meat you're looking for?)
Hello, is it meat you’re looking for?
Hello, is it meat that you’re craving for?

Lionel Richie

Hello Is it cheese you’re dreaming of?
Hello is it cheese behind these doors?

Lionel Richie
Track Name: My wife's cousin is Paul Gilbert's Döppelganger
My wife's cousin is Paul Gilbert's Döppelganger
Track Name: Dad Jeans
You can go to the supermarket
You can go to department stores
You can go where ever you want
Tight jeans aren't hip anymore

Dad jeans Dad jeans
Right now i’m wearing Dad jeans
Dad jeans Dad jeans
You’d better buckle up and tuck your shirt in
Track Name: Flimsy Pie
Flimsy Pie
Track Name: Flying Standard Tuning Banana part 2
Everyone's asleep in the city except me and my
Flying standard tuning banana it’s a damn fine guitar

"There is now a fair amount of yellow objects flying
in the sky ; I correct: there is now a tremendous
quantity of yellow objects flying in the sky."

Flying bananas shining in the sky
Flying bananas cutting through the Clouds

There's something under the ground
Made of dirt and squeezed lemon

Stir it up stir it up good
Make it boil and go to the moon

Country fried Everyone seems to be country fried
Track Name: The Ghost / The Lake
There's a ghost in my closet wearing all my shirts
That's why every morning I'm such a mess to go to work

There’s a ghost in the kitchen
Messing with my fridge
That’s why every evening there’s nothing left for me but beans

When the week-end comes my ghost and I
We are dancing under stroboscopes
White Tiger tags along
We feel just like Siegfried and Roy

Christmas Trees are overrated white tigers are funnier

There’s a ghost in my pocket playing with my keys
And when the ghost is angry he throws the keys
Right down the lake

Right down the Lake
There is no one,
Right down the Lake
