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
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
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
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
My wife's cousin is Paul Gilbert's Döppelganger
Dad Jeans 01:17
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
Flimsy Pie 01:25
Flimsy Pie
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  
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


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
