Music: Alain Mercier Words: Robert Kramberger (Copyright 2019)

You, you’re my only friend 
‘Cause you remind me, I should never pretend 

You, you’re my closest friend 
Who sees me, for who I really am 

Why should I worry what others see, 
Just need to imagine what you want me to be… 
…if you think so. 

Tell me, something, 
Please tell me, something true 
What should I do? 

You, you’re my only friend 
‘Cause you remind me, to never offend 

You, you’re my closest friend 
Who knows me, for where I truly stand 

Why should I worry what others see, 
Just need to imagine what you want me to be… 
…if you think so. 

Tell me, something, 
Please tell me, something true 
What should I do?

Am Noise Music Project

The AM Noise Music Project is the brainchild of Alain Mercier, whose creative, original, and highly diverse music forms the backbone to words composed by fellow creative collaborist, Robert Kramberger. Combined, the finished music speaks – and sounds – for itself

Alain Mercier 
Guitar playing and noise making. 

Robert Kramberger 
Whimsical word weaving plus bits of beat making. 

These unique, original songs are an exercise in creativity – Sounds and Words – and primarily intended to entertain. Hope you enjoy. We certainly did in creating these tantalizing tunes. Website: https://amnoisemusicproject.com/intro

 

The Bottles – Xmas Rooftop Sessions: Winter 1988 vid

The Bottles – Xmas Rooftop Sessions: Winter 1988 From the archives of Rotten Banana Records comes this rare live recording of The Bottles in their very, very early period. Featuring original members Soily Simon (guitar, vocals) and Robby Dumpers (drums, vocals, assorted cutlery). What started as a project to get the band playing live together again, and to help rekindle the spark that had once brought them great popularity with the “under 5 crowd”, turned out to be a session filled with temper tantrums, spilled Pablum, and, of course, plenty of soiled diapers. To further exacerbate the tense sessions, Soily Simon insisted on bringing along his new playmate, Baby GaGa, who, apparently, did not want to share her toys with Robby Dumpers. Disaster was imminent. This live performance (the last by the members performing together as The Bottles) was staged on the rooftop of the Rotten Banana headquarters, located in the NDG suburb of Montreal, as a publicity stunt to garner interest in an upcoming studio album that, alas, never saw fruition.

THE THE: New Single, ‘We Can’t Stop What’s Coming’ – The Inertia Variations

“I have been waiting for tomorrow (all of my life)”, Matt Johnson (THE THE)

After a decade of absence from the music scene (not including film scores), Matt Johnson (THE THE) returns with a new single: ‘We Can’t Stop What’s Coming’.  And guitarist Johnny Marr — formerly with The Smiths and THE THE —  is back working with Matt.

The song, dedicated to Matt’s brother, Andrew, (an accomplished artist, illustrator on THE THE’s albums) who passed away in 2016, is from a new documentary ‘The Inertia Variations’, Inspired by the poem by John Tottenham, with the theme revolving around performance anxiety and fear of both success and failure.
