about

"It’s a joy to hear. Revolver-esque production resonates through ‘High Horse’; ‘Almost Got You Made’ is shot through with 12 string and sitar bliss; the Stonesy groove of ‘Sillhouette Suzy’ contrasts with the trippy West Coast blow-out ‘Again And Again’. You won’t be disappointed." - Richard Allen, Shindig! magazine, March 2018

Background:
EMPIRE OF MARS -- originally intended to be the second LP from The Laissez Fairs. BIRS Recordings, requested this album to be put on hold so that the TARGET ON MY BACK album could be recorded and produced.

In the interim, RUM BAR RECORDS asked to release EMPIRE OF MARS after owner, Malibu Lou couldn't get enough of it. Now, it is HERE for YOU, TO DIG... The third LP from The Laissez Fairs!

Track Name: Like Mrs Peel In Leather
Lyrics:

You better look out
Watching every step
Falling to the right
Twisting to the left
She’s the one you want.

Your bottle went dry
Seeing here there
Fix your eyes
Stop and stare
Like you don’t care.

You bring the long night down
So come on

Baby baby
Dumb and lazy
Knocks you sideways
Up a staircase
No railing
Arms flailing
You got to get a grip
to stay hip to her trip
Now dig!

You bring the long night down
So come on
Track Name: Almost Got You Made
Lyrics:

Look at you go walking into the wind.
You're quite a show, yeah, everyone is your friend.
But not me, no, cause I got it going on.
A broken yo-yo who's not gonna walk your dog.

So step it up girl, how you gonna blow my mind?
I dig your action, but you're no one of a kind.
Are you for using, up, up, up, til you're gone?
I get the message right here where you belong.

Hey, I almost got you made.

Look at you go walking into the wind.
You're quite a show, yeah, everyone is your friend.
But don't go too far wandering if you'll fade.
Stay in this moment, I almost got you made.

Hey, I almost got you made.
Track Name: A Girl Insane
Lyrics:

You asked me where I got my ideas from.
I cooked and blended them on my notion grill.
Can you taste their flavors? They’re home-made shindig.
A summer dressing-down of infamy

I almost touched your tongue; you gave my hands no purpose,
You spoke on high fashion; I then lost my interest.
Licking your liquid sun squid in my brain,
I feel you breathing lipless lies in time like a girl insane.

You’re wearing my cardigan curled up in my bed.
The electric blanket’s set… on high.
But yesterday you boiled on the couch.
While you spoke and sang the words from my mouth.

I almost touched your tongue; you gave my hands no purpose,
You spoke on high fashion; I then lost my interest.
Licking your liquid sun squid in my brain,
I feel you breathing lipless lies in time like a girl insane.

I almost touched your tongue; you gave my hands no purpose,
You said you were a Sufi Sophia Loren impersonator
Licking your liquid sun squid in my brain,
I feel you breathing lipless lies in time like a girl insane.
