Lars Mars was described by one long time fan as Perfectly Imperfect.The band formed in high school, playing local dances and parties before graduating to bars (and we even played at a few). While Ron did a stint in the Army, Dennis and Glenn stormed LA. Bob and Russ worked with other bands and polished their already prodigious skills. Bob, Den and Ron formed a trio while Glenn was in the SF Bay area with one of its many fine startup bands. When Glenn returned, Russ joined the first of many iterations of Lars Mars, and that core has remained together since.

Down Like the Rain
Cold heart, cold hand,
Cold tears that ran
Down like the rain.
Featuring Bob on lead, Glenn sings this one.
Middle of the Night
What do you see in the middle of the night?
Fallin' Hard for you,
Look out below, save the women and children.
Fallin' Hard for you,
Just like I jumped from a ten story building.
If You'd Had the Time
Would things have turned out differently
If You'd Had the Time?
I wanna conversation pit;
A place where we can talk and sit.
Slip down in our beanbag chairs,
Forget about our earthly cares.
Everything She Does
She's bustling down the boulevard,
Her heart sewn on her sleeve.
No evidence to point to,
But you know that she believes
Everything she does, she does for love.
Come a Little Closer
Don't be running out my door.
Come a little closer,
You're the woman I've been waiting for.
The Young Fool
A sound, a smile, a shadow's flickering light,
A moment's brief hesitation.
The time it takes to watch a bird taking flight,
Enough to make his mind roam, taking it home.
I Saw You
Summer night, the world is humming;
In the bridge lights, I see you coming.
Warm mist rises from the river below.
Got Twenty Dollars, can't half buy your love....
She Was A Driver
Two roads in a yellow wood
Well, what was I to do?
When there she stood right betwixt 'em both singing:
"Baby, how do you do?"
Speed of light, speed of mind.
Speed of everything, by design.
I'm caught in the bitstream, can't break the chain.
Everything you do, you do again and again.
Summer Sun warms the fields.
The river flows; turns the wheel of their lives.
Summer sun riding high.
That's Not Hockey
Russ wrote and sang this one.
Just trying to catch myself a fish
Floating out in my Rubber Canoe.
Not a Golden Kayak, but it floats.
Take Me to My Home
Interplanetary genocide, conquest and a broken space jockey.
Bob's the center of attention on this tune with his fine guitar work and lead vocals...
I'll Come Courtin'
You're a velvet parasol.
I'm a freshly painted wall.
We know nothing, we know all.
Imani come on, come on out
Come on out and play.
Imani, come out and play with me today.
Imani, come out and play with me today
I'm outside your window and I won't go away.
A live rehearsal take (complete with some stray pops, buzz, hum and strained vox). Kurt Kurtley added the cool Garth Hudson organ later.
Gotta Love Somebody
Some really exceptional guitar work by Russ on this tune by Jeff. Jeff sings and plays bass.
This Side of the World
It's not about politics.
It's not about geography or borders..
It's about a state of mind...
We hope it's made your world a little better for having listened. Thanks

Hey Glenn I don't visit IAC much anymore, but I wanted to drop by and thank you for the kind words you left last month.
I'm still doing music, but don't participate much here.
Nice to have the warmth return to CT after a bloody hell of a winter! Hope you're having a great Memorial Day weekend ... which I am having as I write. I finally had two seconds of respite to sit and just create.
Be well, and talk later, bud. Kev-

Kool post about dyson, that fella gets around.
Dunno if you recall, a few years ago, there was a PBS show, features cutting edge scientists, dyson was on there, what a joker...

Hey Glenn! Thanks for the welcome! I remember Lars Mars very well from the mp3.com days. Glad to be here...will be seeing you around. Take care!

Diggin' "in the middle of the night"

Thanks for the message. At the moment, I can't play ANYTHING on IAC and the slide show seems to have failed, but this could be a separate prob from the one you're having. Last time, the track totally vanished from the stations playing it and that's not the case this time. As Batman said to Jim Gordon regarding The Joker at the end of Batman Begins - 'I'll look into it'.

My name is pronounced like faucet, but with the emphasis on the "set" part. Au"set". Thanks for asking.

Glenn, I just tonight put together a CD pkg of Jammers and Rgods for you. I'll get them off tomorrow. And, just for being so patient, I'll follow up and burn some Hoolios for good measure.
Once plans are finalized for a Rivergods live recording at the Eugene O'Neill I'll let you know and reserve a couple tix for you.

That's not hockey is a very cool song. it should really be featured on hockey night in canada.....as the new anthem the other one they picked is kinda lame
might even add it to music is truth. cause we got to have hockey....fun song

Hey, Glenn - thanks for coming along last night and supporting the monkeys. We had a blast!
The song you were asking about is 'Making Amends' and soon as I'm in the studio, I'll post it to my page. Onward to Stash's on 23rd April!

Thanks for the extra shout, Glenn. I still remember us putting that one together around Geoff's kitchen table about ten years or so ago. The gliss-bliss guitar solo is actually Curtiss (mando) playing his main instrument. Man, he smoked that one right up! I'm right proud of those fellers.
