LONELY WALK – teen – VINYL LP (black)

VINYL LP (black)born bad records2015


In the beginning, Lonely Walk was a post-apocalyptic and personal digression created by Mickael Appollinaire, AKA Monsieur Crane, being also a dark preacher in the band Strasbourg. Based in Bordeaux, South-West of France, he smoked out the blogosphere by releasing several digital Eps between 2010 and 2013, all available on Bandcamp.

The record label Satanic Royalty released V.I.H.S., Lonely Walk’s first LP in stores in 2013, which was well received by the critics. Then followed the NGHTMR EP, then a more personal album called BORE in 2014.

Eleven dark and addictive songs. A hypnotic post-punk slumming it with pop and making a few psychedelic stops, led by an obsessive singing with catchy slogans.Happy innocent children shout because school’s out (Burial Tomb), the epic violin of Tamara Goukassova shreds the toxic atmosphere (War, Black Dragonfish). To cut a long story short, Lonely Walk takes us right to Doomsday, but not the one we dread. The one we crave for, eyes wide open and dilated pupils, drinking a nice and cheap cocktail of liquid nitrogen.
One can think of Clinic, Soft Moon or A-Frames, but you must look towards Australia to find cousins to Lonely Walk, with bands like Eddy Current Suppression Ring or Total Control.
The album artwork representing a one-eyed skull hiding it shame behind hands was conceived by graphic designer Greg Vezon.
