vincentbrej Mercenary est un album d’une étonnante maturité, Louis Mezzasoma et Gael Bernaud, son compère batteur remplissent l’espace avec brio grace à des compositions puissantes et accrocheuses. Les guitares, cigare box et autres instruments à corde ronronent à souhait. Les invités (harominisiste, cuivre) se glissent parfaitement dans les musique et on est sur du très gros son ! Une pépite de blues contemporain qui trouvera parfaitement sa place entre Jack White et Gary Clark JR. Favorite track: Kick Some Ass.

I wanna tell you about The feelin’ I had when I jump on stage I’m like a tiger out of his cage I wanna shout for ages I wanna kick some ass ! I wanna take my guitare Then I jump in the car I go to the bar Smoking a cigar I wanna show who we are And What we’ve done so far I wanna kick some ass ! I wanna play it loud Because that’s not allowed My rage is like a thunder cloud That I’m not proud I wanna kick some ass !

Mercenary 04:34
I am a mercenary - Runnin’ for money I Just want a salary - No Matter if I kill your family. If I was an outlaw Behind me, Indians, bow and arrow I’m free like a sparrow And Slow as a man with a donkey and a barrow. I took a break in the first city center That’s where I’ve met my mentor He taught me how to kill and run This is how I became a son of a gun. Everybody knows me They know I have no mercy No matter who you might be No matter if you’re my friend or my ennemy. Lord have mercy But I don’t have any I’m goin’ to hunt you down And then I’ll shoot you down

Flat Land 04:13
It’s tuesday morning, Take it easy Drinkin’ a coffee, And whisperin’ this sweat song This land is flat, And the sunset is warm The time is slow, Can you hear my voice, Can you hear my voice… I’ve never been so close, to the Netherlands Seeing people cycling, On a windy day Lost in the city, my friend takes care of me Don’t know where I am, But I’m here to tell my story I’ve seen beautiful people, beautiful women I’m here to say goodbye, I go back home

Who U R 06:33
Don’t know whom my heart belongs to, Don’t know who I’m gonna love Don’t know whom my heart belongs to, Don’t know who I’m gonna love Don’t know to who I wrote this song, This is for the woman I’m gonna love Don’t know who you are, Don’t know if I’ve met you so far Don’t know who you are, Don’t know if I’ve met you so far If you’re my beautiful, Would you please come to me No Matter who you are, Please come to me ! Are you an older woman, Are you younger than me Are you an older woman Are you younger than me Spend some times together, Let’s see what’s goin’ on No Matter who you are, Please come to me ! Do you want to marry me, Do you want to be my wife Do you want to marry me, Do you want to be my wife Raise a family, And make our life No Matter who you are, Please come to me !

John-Lewis 02:30
Hurry Hurry, I’m walkin’ down to the juke joint tonight Hurry Hurry, I’m walkin’ down to the juke joint tonight Hurry Hurry, I have to get there before I lose the daylight John-Louis Hurry Hurry, The drunk guy licks the counter John-Louis Hurry Hurry, The drunk guy licks the counter Never mind kiddo, He’s drunk for five days now John-Louis John-Louis, Your friend’s sleepin’ in his plate John-Louis John-Louis, Your friend’s sleepin’ in his plate Be quiet ! He need some rest. John-Louis John-Louis, You told me there’s snakes in my room John-Louis John-Louis, You told me there’s snakes in my room John-Louis John-Louis, You told me there’s snakes all in my room John-Louis John-Louis, Is there a snake in the bath ? John-Louis John-Louis, Is there a snake in the bath ? Don’t worry don’t worry, I’m not a psychopath

I’ve been drivin’ through the mountains, I left my home in the morning I sweat under the sun, and froze down in the valley Ridin’ to find a job, Playin’ to stay alive Watchin’ the landscape, don’t go to the precipice I’m lost in the valley of shadows - A bow and the snow I though I was close to the station, I turn back try to find another way The sun goes down, and the snow falls The warm light’s gone, and I’m alone I’m lost in the valley of shadows - A bow and the snow The day was long, but it’s done now I have to be strong, As anyone before Thankfully that devil liked this song, So he let me run.

Home Alone 03:28
This Afternoon the rain is fallin’ down, I stay at home, I can’t go downtown Hearing the thunder and listening to some Charlie Parr, Cooking some food and playing my guitar People came and went but nobody stayed inside, It’s the moment I wanna be in the countryside, With the warm fire place just beside, I’m home alone and I can’t go outside I’m home alone, I’m better off on my own, I’m turning into a stone, at the end I’m only bones This storm is coming from the clouds, It’s raining angry cats and dogs Those tears from the sky or from some eyes, Show how aweful I am There’s a time to understand, You better be alone Than stayin’ with your band, You bored people cause you’re the worse guy ever Never satisfied by the way they do anything, The best way to do it is yours cause your the king Then people do the same as you and it anoys you again, You’re fed up by everything

Rusty Man 05:01
I’m not a caveman, I’ve had long hair I’m not a lumberjack, Don’t you mind the checked shirt I wear I’m drinkin’ with Daniel and Jack, And I’m a Rustyman When I was a kid, All my blue jeans were never blue By hangin’ out at my father workshop, I wore down my shoes Walkin’ down the countryside, I was a dirty kid And now I’m a man, My shirt is wet If I walk when I write I sweat, When I’m havin’ sex of course I sweat Anything I touch, It goes to rust When I’m playin’ my guitar, My resonator turns brown My strings breakin’ down, My hands are green Everything turns to rust, Cos I’m a rustyman

Truly Sorry 02:54
I heard my baby cryin’ She whispered in my ear But I’m already gone Don’t know what to do I’m truely sorry baby But I’m already gone I know you love me But my life is on the road Can you understand that I’m not good to you I’m truely sorry, truely sorry, truely sorry You can’t stand to see me away See me away many days I know you want me to stay But I’m already gone You made me happy And I made you cry I feel so bad It was (so) unfair
