Album Available Now,

NICE, VERY NICE! Wat hebben we uitgekeken naar het moment dat we jullie dit kunnen melden. Dat het debuutalbum van Lucifer’s Playlist, Mirror of my Soul, eindelijk haar glorieuze nullen en enen op een rijtje heeft. Dat moment, beste vrienden, is nu. En ja, we zijn ons er terdege van bewust dat het haast een doodzonde is Mirror of my Soul niet op vinyl uit te brengen. Waarvoor onze welgemeende excuses. Aan de andere kant brengen slechts enkele simpele klikken jou negen bloody awesome songs om jouw auris interna in absolute vervoering te brengen.

Negen nummers die liefhebbers van jaren zeventig blues en rock meenemen op een één uur durende trip down memory lane. Het opbeurende ‘Good Times’, het stevige en energieke ‘Big Space Boogie’, eigentijdse nummers als het funky ‘Put The Heat On’ of ‘Let’s Go Home’ en als toetje het epische, bijna drieëntwintig minuten durende ‘The Suite’.

Arjen Knaap slaat het trommelvlies over en beukt zijn rotsvaste drumbeat rechtstreeks je hoofd in. Kevin de Harde baant zich met zijn stem een weg door je buis van Eustachius. Bram Slinger en Jan Jaap Doeven laten hun orgel en gitaar resoneren in je slakkenhuis, terwijl de bastonen van Dirk van Hoven je schedel sympathisch laat vibreren.

Wij, the founding fathers van Lucifer’s Playlist, laten bij deze met gepaste trots en onbegrensd enthousiasme ons geesteskind los. Download Mirror Of My Soul op Bandcamp en: play it loud, never mind the neighbours.

Track Name: Put the Heat On
I’ve seen the people bow their heads
To the man on top in his power suit
White-collar conservative feds
Don’t you dare take that forbidden fruit

Put the heat on
Put the heat on
Put the heat on

You choose your own demise
Can’t you choose what’s right
But the weather’s still pretty nice
Stay outdoors, stay outta sight

Put the heat on
Put the heat on
Put the heat on
Track Name: Good Times
I got time baby, I got money too
But I can’t, spend it on you
I’ve been looking for a way, to let you know
That I’ve had enough, since a long long time ago

Well now baby
Don’t you wait for me
I said now baby
Good times, good times
Coming to me

Baby I’ve been on the road, and I’ve seen the show
And I just can’t, take no more
The sad truth is, that I’d rather keep on
Than to come back home, and find out your gone

Well now baby
Don’t you wait for me
I said now baby
Good times, good times
Coming to me

You’re always trying, trying to take control
But the good times are coming, I’m gonna let them roll
Take me some time off, ain’t gonna weep and moan
If you can’t beat the blues, join it and make it your own

Well now baby
Don’t you wait for me
I said now baby
Good times, good times
Coming to me
Track Name: Bus Stop Wedding
Just met you baby
But I can’t do by myself
Turn around slowly
I hope to see you standing there

Then I watched you from afar
Had me hypnotized, paralyzed
Sitting down, you sat across from me
Then I realized, we had a bus stop wedding

But then you gone and went
And I started wondering why
Why’d you do the things to me
That made me, made me cry

You returned the next day
But the feeling was gone
Now I know I had myself fooled
Believing that you, and me,
And the world, could think
That a failed bus stop wedding
Could be agony too
Track Name: Let's Go Home
Baby, you look pale by the moonlight
And baby, this place ain’t really outta sight
Office ceiling and holes in the wall
Bland red carpeting, that says it all

Honey honey, let’s just go home
I know it’s been a riot
Honey honey, can’t take no more
Gotta go back where it’s quiet

Been at this party for nearly two days
And it all it all it all just seems like a haze
Man, I really need to take me a vacation
Gotta go, reach the next phase
Cause if I don't get outta here
Gonna lose my fucking mind

Honey honey, let’s just go home
I know it’s been a riot
Honey honey, can’t take no more
Gotta go back where it’s quiet

Layin’ down on the red carpet floor,
I don’t think I can take no more
Lay me down a line, cut it up well,
Messin’ with my brain, it has seen hell

Gonna take me a pill and grab me a drink
I don’t think I, I can’t think
Feeling good, feeling bad
Flying high, it’s kinda sad

Gotta go, go on home, mmm, take me some time off
Lay down on the couch, do some work in the garden
Play some games...
Maybe pet the dog a little, I don’t know
Just…, just… take it easy

Honey honey, let’s just go home
I know it’s been a riot
Honey honey, can’t take no more
Gotta go back where it’s quiet
Track Name: Wicked Dance
When the day is done
And everybody has gone
His puppets will dance
His puppets will dance
 
I have been
The only one who has seen
His wild romance
His wild romance

Nobody but me can see his feast
In his trance he makes the skeletons
Do their wicked dance
Their wicked dance

Glowing eyes in the dark
Nothing else, just a spark
Strange and intense
Strange and intense

I have seen
The only one who has been
So entranced
So entranced

Nobody but me can see his feast
In his trance he makes the skeletons
Do their wicked dance
Their wicked dance
Track Name: Big Space Boogie
Travelling at the speed of light
We lost too many battles
Shooting stars in the night
Ship can’t take no more hassle

Lasers blaring
Shields are flaring
Tractor beam’s losing traction
Thrusters thrusting
Balls are busting
Crashing on a gas giant’s moon

We’re caught in a time loop
Can’t seem to get out
Joined a mighty battle group
Now we have to come about

Lasers blaring
Shields are flaring
Tractor beam’s losing traction
Thrusters thrusting
Balls are busting
Crashing on a gas giant’s moon

An alternate dimension looms
Enemies begin their deadly prowl
We seem to be heading for our doom
In space no one can hear you howl

Lasers blaring
Shields are flaring
Tractor beam’s losing traction
Thrusters thrusting
Balls are busting
Crashing on a gas giant’s moon
Track Name: Metaphor Groove
I’ve seen the skies
Open up for me
I’ve heard the wind
Howl my name
Shells washed up
On the shore
Writing me words
I can’t ignore

Took to the road
The less traveled one
Went round the bend
Of time and space
Sleeping under a blanket
Made of snow
Won’t grow cold
I’m rolling in dough

Her soft voice
Was music to my ears
Couldn’t take it slow
So I took it fast
Her deep dark secret
And her silken lies
I’m heartbroken
Left high and dry
Track Name: The Suite
The patterns on the wall are obscured,
Hidden quite well by the fabled facade
The lobby used to be grand
But the furnishings have gone south
But I shouldn’t worry, oh no
Where I am I don’t really know

The lady at the front desk, with her beauty gone
Smiles at you with yellowed teeth and a sense of calm
Takes your credit card and gives you the key:
„No smoking allowed in room number fourteen”

Well, I’m sitting here, in a thinking mood
And I’m looking out the window
And all I can see, are the hoi polloi
And they are all so fucking simple
Shouldn't be so quick to judge
All that talk is just double Dutch

I’ve done things that the world has never seen
And I’ve seen the lord, said take me to the queen
I have the world on my shoulders, but damn it Jim I’m getting older
And I don’t know if I’ll see the end, the clock is ticking for you my friend

---

Tick tock, your time’s up
World’s gotta end
And the people who know
Don’t understand
They never do

But my mother and my father
Were so wise
They showed me the light
That shines in everybody
Shines on through the night

Now, it’s been a good run
And I’ve tried to spread the word
But it meant nothing, nothing,
Nobody heard
Just let your worries
Boil away with the sun

---

I'm going home
Track Name: Mirror of my Soul
Lying on the couch about to have a smoke
I’ve got a one way ticket to a world of my own
It’s own little wonders in an old neighborhood
It’s a mirror of my soul

The rain outside turns into a note
Of the song I’m singing that I never wrote
It has no beginning and it never goes
It’s a mirror of my soul

The lights go on and the lights go off
Or maybe my eyes just had enough
The shapes I’m seeing are fading away
In the mirror of my soul

The memory of the day that’s passed
Slips from my mind as it always has
Like the rain’s that beating on the glass
Of the mirror of my soul

The steaming train on the old sidetrack
Is calling for me so I pick up my bag
I don’t know where I’m going but I won’t look back
In the mirror of my soul
