Biography

A British inspired Rock and Roll Power Trio from Vancouver, GOOD NIGHT MARS' sound has been compared to an eclectic mix of Queens of The Stone Age, 70's Bowie and The Clash. Their music is loaded with catchy melodies and guitar riffs played over rock solid grooves. From hauntingly atmospheric to brutally bombastic, GNM boldly takes many styles of music and jams them through its own rock and roll filter.

Born and raised in Scotland, singer/guitarist KEN LAWSON's influences include Radio Head, QOTSA, The Police ,Smashing Pumpkins , Jimi and of course Rush . He also works his performance chops as a comedic improviser with the Vancouver TheatreSports League.

Originally from the Interior of BC, a second-generation drummer, CHRIS GLOVER has been around music and drumming all of his life. At a young age, he became obsessed with Led Zeppelin and John Bonham and eventually started to teach drums himself. Chris' keen sense of timing and rhythm has also propelled him on to becoming a champion, high speed go-cart racer.

Parisian born and raised bassist David Marion has studied his instrument with many of the worlds best through a scholarship to The Berklee College of Music in Boston. Influenced by such artists as Cream, David Bowie and the jazz-fusion of Victor Wooten, David has performed on stages and TV all over the world.

Lyrics

Pretty Blue

Written By: Ken Lawson

She lies awake in a haze
she believes that no one ever will be there
storms right in then pulls way
doesn't eat or sleep, do anything for days

crank the violins
sing sweet violence

shiny penny on the floor
keeps on walking only wishing it were more
smiling faces all around
excuses burn to let anything bring her down

crank the violins
sing sweet violence

Paint Your eyes Pretty Blue
Paint Your eyes Pretty Blue

crank the violins
sing sweet violence

Paint your eyes Pretty Blue
Paint your eyes Pretty Blue

One Man

Written By: Ken Lawson

Yo Yo bouncing up and down
Knotted string around your neck
jerks you around
Don't even try to understand
the more you wriggle more you sink
in the sand
Go on ....reach for the gun

You're only as strong as your friends
you're just one man no need to pretend
the more it blows the more you bend
you're just one man no need to pretend

Pelting rain gets in your eyes
crashing computer brain hums like one million flies
You say your dieing for a change
but are you ready to cut out, not rearrange
Go on ....reach for the gun

You're only as string as your friends
you're just one man no need to pretend
the more it blows the more you bend
you're just one man no need to pretend ....its ok
