En attendant le prochain disque de Lesbo Vrouven, on fête les 10 ans de Encore la mort. L'album post-punk semi-concept a été remasterisé et sort en vinyle jaune, individuellement numéroté à la main et accompagné de surprises. Sam Murdock, Hugo Lebel et Tony, le nouveau drummeur de l'époque, se souviennent d'une période importante, intense et créative. Enregistré et mixé dans un marathon chaotique de trois jours au printemps 2008, les 12 chansons dansantes sur la mort s'écoutent encore mieux sur une table tournante et la pochette de l'Américaine Betsy Walton est toujours aussi magnifique. L'album risque d'être joué en entier lors des quelques concerts lancement de l'automne. P572 s'occupe de la distribution au Canada et Catulle & Ramón en Europe. Bli Bli Bli.

À l'époque des critiques avaient dit ceci “ […] une synergie punk-new wave délirante.” (Antoine Léveillée, Voir), “ […] impossible pour l’auditeur enivré de retirer le disque du lecteur.” (Michel Cécyre, Bande à Part), “ […] douze pièces aussi nerveuses que chaotiques, bien foutues et surtout, bien efficaces” (André Péloquin, Ici), “ Une agressivité digne des plus fougueux groupes punk, des lignes de basse corrosives jumelées à des guitares crasseuses ainsi que des rythmiques vives et incessantes font d’Encore la mort un album duquel se dégage une virulente énergie sauvage.” (Philippe Renault, Le Journal de Montréal)

While we wait for the new Lesbo Vrouven album, we celebrate the 10th year of their second disc, Encore la mort. The post-punk semi-concept album released in 2008 has been remastered into a yellow vinyl and it comes with souvenirs and bonuses. Sam Murdock and Hugo Lebel along with Tony, the then new drummer, recorded and mixed Encore la mort in three days, after rehearsing the complex compositions in concerts for months. The 12 dunk-pance songs about death to dance to were a creative turning point for the band. Gloomy, but fun, like the artwork by extraordinary American artist Betsy Walton. In tandem with the release of this vinyl reissue, Lesbo Vrouven will play shows and maybe sing the whole album. P572 and Catulle & Ramón are together again for distribution in Canada and Europe.

This was said about the record then: “Projecting their manic energy full force into Encore La Mort, Quebec City's Lesbo Vrouven continue to be a force to be reckoned with. Their in-your-face live antics have made them a memorable attraction away from home and that exuberant attitude comes across clearly on these punk-infused rock songs.” (Vish Khanna, Exclaim!)

''Lesbo Vrouven came to Phog once. I had heard an EP of theirs and thought, “Yep, this is damn good.” What happened when they showed to play? They were flawless. The up-tempo, dirty-bass sound was exactly what the recording advertised. I have been waiting for them to leave Quebec again since then. Speaking of “since then”, they have played with Beirut, Tokyo Police Club, Pride Tiger, Les Georges Leningrad, and more. Very impressive. Can’t wait to hear what they’ve cooked up in over two years.'' Tom Lucier, Phog Lounge

Track Name: Encore La Mort
(13 novembre 2005)

We all drink blood for a living
Inside your shirt it was out of control
Clean room ten, clean room ten, clean
Black strap on your crimson baby back

It’s in your blood for a lifetime
Inside your chest it was out of control
Clean room ten, clean room ten, clean
You’ve been in bed for years now

We all share blood with each other
Inside your heart it was out of control
Clean room ten, clean room ten, clean
This is your moment to shine
Track Name: Greek Woman
(4 janvier 2008)

Green woman
Don’t you want me to be your man?
It’s all golden inside

Greek Woman
We will be the first to fight
It’s all golden inside

Greek woman
Why don’t you kill the answer phone?
It’s all golden inside
Track Name: M M
(27 février 2006)

Girls going to their tryst
Just another side effect
Cold dark 1962
Train fight for me and you

From the mouth of Marilyn Monroe
Naked with dancing luck
The five of us are dying
In a summer parade
Another drunken ship in the night

JFK's list of top ten
You better read it right
Post world war entertainer
Matt Monroe you’re the one
Track Name: Bli Bli Bli
(1 mai 1998)
Track Name: Silent
(17 août 2002)

Naked on your bed late on Sunday morning
You were like a starfish for the painter
Details and shapes of a fist fight
Silent and spying on the world

You’re all red now
You must have got it from a kid
Didn’t you know that Ben was an only son?
Listen to me, you only live twice
There’s nothing else you could have done

She fell in love, in love with the blacksmith
But that was years and years ago
Now she’s gone and she’s sleeping around
Sweaty, fancy, one bed, one city

New Zealand is not a country
It’s an island inside my heart
I’ll paint your constellation scars
It taste like salt when you leave
Burn all my books, get on a train
Fight for you evil painted city
Track Name: The Arcade
(14 août 1995)

The arcade is sinking fast
This ship was never meant to last for me and you
Do do do do do do, do it
Just for the sake of it babe
Kick, punch, block

You will never, do what’s right
You will never

Cause the Panzer’s been waiting, for 10 long years
Your fingers will not remember, the touch, the edge and azel
The sword was just an excuse away
The arcade is sinking fast, this ship was never

You will never, do what’s right
You will never do it
Track Name: Queen
(4 mai 1982)

I know
That you are
Good for

I swear
That you are
A queen
For me

We are waiting
Let’s make out and dance dance
We are waiting
Let’s make out and dance dead

I know
That I swear
That you are
A queen
Track Name: Flag
(7 mars 2006)

Flag for a dress
That’s what you get
For messing with us
Messing with us
Bluebell is born
To the sound
Of broken machines
Broken machines

Cold blooded
Hot gossip
Bag it up
Lift me up
He wants it
She's got it
Superficial expectation

Little white lies
Tell a story
I see it all
Has no glory
What you see
Ain't what you are getting
Sugar sweet
Look at me
Track Name: Books
(23 Juin 1959)

For the sake of books letters and words
Collecting faces, braces and beds
Take notes, takes notes, take notes, for me
Books are burning on your lips tonight

For the sake of faces, braces and beds
Collecting secrets, letters and words
Take notes, takes notes, take notes, for me
The kids you’re making are not totally born right

For the sake of books, letters and words
Collecting faces, braces and beds
Track Name: Ship
(11 mars 1978)

You’re so low must be a curse, I know
What you need
I’ve seen it in books as a kid, she said

You’re a witch and there’s no cure for what you are
You will be burning along with the captain tonight

You’re a ghost to me now
You took a ship all the way back to Sydney
Track Name: The Chase
(18 février 2008)

The DJ said it’s alright
You can dance just about every night
Every single boy is waiting in line at the office for you

The DJ said it’s alright
You can dance just about every night
I like to think of you at the office alone
Track Name: Secret
(4 août 2006)

What we do is secret and that’s alright
