Eon Automatic

Eon Automatic

BandJazzRock

We are group of musicians who drifted together in the suburbs of eastern Melbourne in Australia. Each of us like wildly different styles of music, so when we write a song, we try to incorporate a little of what each of us like. It might not make us radio friendly, but we still enjoy it.

Biography

Playing an almost cabaret blend of blues, funk, rock and something not quite defineable, Eon Automatic have been entertaining audiences all over Melbourne for several years now. Able to equally stir both the bohemian crowd of Ruby's Lounge in Belgrave and the rock lovers who frequent Ding Dong in Melbourne with their music, they possess the rare gift of getting any crowd up and dancing. And truth be told, when the enigmatic Erica stands at the front of the stage in her suspenders and ruby lipstick telling people to get up and shake it, who can say no?

Boundless energy, crazy dancing and a little bit of flirting accompanies oddly poetic lyrics of lust, love, longing and even going-through-rubbish-bins-at-night levels of stalking. At the centre of each song is Erica's stunning voice - thick with the blues and shimmering with jazz vibrato. She is surrounded by the funky 80's cheese inspired keyboards of Russ and backed up by Dan and Don's collectively groovy rhythm. And if all else fails then Erica will just dance a little harder and hitch her skirt up a little higher.

Lyrics

Walker (Not a Stalker)

Written By: Erica Bramham

So what,
If I waited an hour or two at the station,
Just in case you got off the next train?
And so what,
If I hung around all lunchtime,
Just in case you should pass by?

Cause I'm a dreamer, not a stalker
I'm a romantic, not a freak.
Yeah, I went walking, not out stalking,
Well I never looked through your windows at night.
I'm a dreamer, not a stalker,
I'm a romantic, not a freak.
Yeah, I went walking, not out stalking,
Well I never went through your rubbish at night.

And so what,
If I had a little too much to drink,
And called you at three in the morning?
(About a hundred times....)
And so what,
If I went walking late at night,
Around your street in the rain....

Cause I'm a dreamer, not a stalker
I'm a romantic, not a freak.
Yeah, I went walking, not out stalking,
Well I never looked through your windows at night.
I'm a dreamer, not a stalker,
I'm a romantic, not a freak.
Yeah, I went walking, not out stalking,
Well I never went through your rubbish at night.

Cause I'm a dreamer, not a stalker
I'm a romantic, not a freak.
I went walking, not out stalking,
Well I never looked through your windows at night.
I'm a dreamer, not a stalker,
I'm a romantic, not a freak.
Yeah, I went walking, not out stalking,
And I never went through your rubbish at night.....

Oh no no no no
I'm a dreamer, not a stalker, yeah I am not a freak!

(Goes into random rant about stalking and masturbation, often going into far too graphic details during live performances.)
