about

This is the first official full-length album of The Sevenate, released and distributed nationally and internationally by Cyclone Records / Sonic Unyon Distribution.

I wanted to go back to my roots with this album. Write and record songs that would reflect every facet of what I like without censoring myself. Funny as it may sound, In the 90's through the Talamasca days, I would often think: "this is too commercial, too pop" and would censor this side of my songwriting abilities. I always loved great catchy choruses, pop hooks and melody. I was a Beatles fan, Kiss fan, and even Michael Jackson!! (AAAARGH! SACRILEGE!) Most everything I recorded in the 90's had to be "underground", "alternative"; but in private I continued to write all sorts of songs without any borders or limits. From classical sonatas, to Chanson Francaise, to blues, jazz, pop, Goth, electronica, metal, ambient, Hardcore, Drum & Bass, punk, industrial, hard rock, singer/songwriter folk, ballads, disco, classic rock, glam... So with this album I went back to my teenage loves and mixed it up. A great example is "Sister Jezebelle"; this song starts with a melodic goth tinged chorus, followed by a glam verse, a metal pre-chorus with pop back up vocals, then a hard rock bridge that I took from an old song of mine "Turn Around" by Love. You can check it out on this website... "Sister Jez" is a true hybrid kind of song but somehow it works really well! So this album has very catchy choruses, pop hooks, powerful riffs and sounds, a great power ballad with strings and piano, and lots of variety, yet it all sounds cohesive. Sound wise, I went back to a classic rock band formula, with real instruments, no electronic drums, no sampling, no tricks: Everything was played by humans. Some very talented humans too! Manny did all the drums in about 5 sessions and this album is a great testimony to his powerhouse drumming talent. This guy is one of the top drummers in Toronto right now. He drums ahead of the beat, giving the songs a sense of urgency and excitement. He is technical and yet he hits hard like Bonham used to. His snare snaps aggressively, interwoven with hat flourishes and juicy parts that truly adds a musicality to the rhythm section. Hem's voice and guitars truly complement mine perfectly. The Sevenate's choruses are all dependent upon his artistry. I especially liked all sorts of details that maybe one wouldn't notice without knowing; things like the acoustic guitar part in "Coming To", the amazing guitar solo in "Be All We Can't Be" the perfectly tight tambourine part and the backing vocals in the chorus of that same song... Great stuff! Another Highlight of the "Revolve" recording sessions for me, was the gorgeous cello parts recorded by Liza McLelland on "It All Revolves Around You", and "Coming To". "Revolve" is an album that I am extremely proud of. All the songs are strong, absolutely no fillers on this album. I believe this album can hold its own side by side with some of the best rock albums of all time, both for its powerful sound and for its collection of amazing songs...
Enjoy!

Track Name: Piggy Likes
Piggy thinks you want him all the time.
Piggy thinks you like it when you’re down
Piggy sees a hole, he doesn’t see a heart
Because it’s all he’s got, he doesn’t have a heart

Except for his mother, his sister or his daughter

Piggy sees a fine pair, he doesn’t see a mind
He sees meat and he sure knows the kind he likes
Piggy likes to think he owns the key
Piggy likes to use you…

As if she didn’t feel. As if she didn’t cry
As if being a woman meant living on your knees
As if she didn’t feel. As if she didn’t cry
As if being a woman meant living on your knees

Piggy thinks you want him all the time.
Piggy thinks you like it when you’re down
Piggy likes to think he owns the key
Piggy likes to use you…
Piggy thinks you want him all the time.
Piggy thinks you like it when you’re down
Piggy sees a hole, he doesn’t see a heart…
Track Name: Orgasm
Welcome pussycat!
Welcome to the new world
I remain faithful
Faithful to my harem

Everybody knows practice makes perfect

There’s no place for
Jealousy in a perfect world

Monosexual versus Stereosexual

Orgasm. Orgasm
Orgasm. Orgasm

Going down on
A lover is like eating a rose
Or drinking a rainbow
I wish my parents had taught me so

Or a sexy teacher in a school by Sappho

Orgasm. Mono can get boring in a while
Orgasm. Stereo’s cool but I dig surround
Orgasm. Mono can get boring in a while
Orgasm. Stereo’s cool but I dig surround… Sound!

(Bridge)

Voodoo!
It's Vaudou!

Orgasm. Mono can get boring in a while
Orgasm. Stereo’s cool but I dig surround… Sound!
Orgasm.
Orgasm
Track Name: Coming To
COMING TO
How I lived in the past, the moment stood still
It hung around my head in shades
For the longest time I didn’t care about the nows
I was on pause….on then
It was so beautiful, so pretty
Never can say goodbye, now can I?

Coming to slowly
Coming to slowly
Yeah you don’t wake up after such a kiss
You come to your senses
You don’t just wake up after such a kiss
You come to
You come to

The trip home isn’t so grey now
Is it even there?
Your lips are permanently printed on
My heart, my soul and my mind
It was so wonderful, so sexy
Never can say goodbye, now can I?

Coming to slowly
Coming to slowly
Yeah you don’t wake up after such a kiss
You come to your senses
You don’t just wake up after such a kiss
You come to
You come too

SOLO
Coming to, Coming to
It was so beautiful, so sexy
Never can say goodbye now can I?

Coming to slowly
Coming to slowly
Yeah you don’t wake up after such a kiss
You come to your senses
You don’t just wake up after such a kiss
You come to
You come to
You come
You come
Track Name: Sister Jezebelle
Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to hell, sister Jezebelle
Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to jail, sister Jezebelle

Pregnant like a silence
A silence speaking measures
Naked like a violence
Fear of overt pleasures

Pop, pop, pop, pop…

Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to hell, sister Jezebelle
Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to jail, sister Jezebelle

Very still in the mean time
Courtroom drama unfolds
A brute we tried to tell you
But words you could not hold

Pop, pop, pop, pop…

Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to hell, sister Jezebelle
Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to jail, sister Jezebelle


Baby come back, come back
Baby come back, now

Turn around, turn around
Turn around, turn around
Turn around, turn around
Turn around, turn around

Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to hell, sister Jezebelle
Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to jail, sister Jezebelle

Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to hell, sister Jezebelle
Sister Jezebelle, We’ll send him back to jail, sister Jezebelle
Track Name: Allergies Again
Goddamn it's my allergies again
(Goddamn it's my allergies)
Goddamn
Goddamn it's my allergies again
(Goddamn it's my allergies)

Allergic to god, allergic to murder
Allergic to cops, allergic to Springer
Allergic to war, allergic to fashion
Allergic to guns, allergic to pollution

They make me sick to my conscience
Give me the medicine, give us all the science

Goddamn it's my allergies again
(Goddamn it's my allergies)
Goddamn
Goddamn it's my allergies again
(Goddamn it's my allergies)

Allergic to Fat, Allergic to cocaine

They make me sick to my conscience
Give me the medicine, give us all the science

Goddamn it's my allergies again
(Goddamn it's my allergies)
Goddamn
Goddamn it's my allergies again
(Goddamn it's my allergies)

Bridge

Goddamn it's my allergies again
(Goddamn it's my allergies)
Goddamn

(Goddamn it's my allergies)
Goddamn!

Track Name: Paint The Town
Marylin’s legs, graffitis in the subway, pink clouds on a wall
Queen and the Annex, kids in the sun, automatic brainwash

Paint the town, paint the town, paint the town
Paint the town, paint the town, paint the town
Paint the town, paint the town, paint the town
Paint the town, paint the town, paint the town

(improvised)

Goin’ downtown now, running down the streets, electric stop sign, stop!
Go on blinded by colors, automatic brainwash

(Bridge)

Paint the town, paint the town, paint the town
Paint the town, paint the town, paint the town
Paint the town, paint the town, paint the town
Paint the town, paint the town, paint the town

Track Name: It All Revolves Around You
Without you the mood is grey
Without you my life is stale
Without you there is no day
Without you the sunlight feels so pale
And the night descends upon me like a veil
Funny how I seem to lose myself
How in the end

It all revolves around you, It all revolves around you
It all revolves around you, It all revolves around you

You put the blood in me
I’m only half of thee
You are vital to me
How in the end

It all revolves around you – I see my life in you
It all revolves around you – I see my eyes in you
It all revolves around you – Everything I love is you
It all revolves around you – How in the end

SOLO

You put the blood in me
I’m only half of thee
You are vital to me
How in the end

It all revolves around you – I see my life in you
It all revolves around you – I see my eyes in you
It all revolves around you – Everything I love is you
It all revolves around you – I’m losing faith in me
It all revolves around you – I lost autonomy
It all revolves around you – I’m losing sanity
It all revolves around you
Track Name: Go Figure
A 100, 1000, 1000 000 women out there
All beautiful, compatible
But it’s the sight of you that weakens my resolve
Go figure, whatever

I don’t really know
How it happened
Somehow here we are
In the right place
Your heart beats in the right space

Odds are seven to one
Seven billion to one
That two perfect lovers are to meet

Be the first to say it
It’s okay to state the obvious
Against all odds

You are the life of my love
You are the life of my love
My love, my love

Your beautiful sister always sat between us
Edible, yeah desirable
But it’s the love you do that makes my heart dissolve
Go figure, forever

Across the sea of indifference
That separates us
We are H2O so lonely
Let us cross the great divide
And be lonely together

Odds are seven to one
Seven billion to one
That two perfect lovers are to meet

Be the first to say it
It’s okay to state the obvious
Against all odds

You are the life of my love
You are the life of my love
It's okay to state the obvious
You are the life of my love
My love, my love, go figure, forever

A 100, 1000, 1000 000 people out there
We're all wonderful, we're all compatible
Yeah it’s the sight of all of you
That makes me want to live
Forever, go figure
Track Name: So Beautiful
One, two, three, four
As I fly over land and sea
As I want your intimacy
Your beauty is immortal
Adorn yourself with shiny things
You’re

So beautiful to me
More beautiful to me
Than anything I know, you’re alive
So beautiful to me
More beautiful to me
Than anything I know, you’re alive

Ballerina grace incarnate
The way you smile and stare at me
The way you love and please me
My greatest mortal fantasy
You’re

So beautiful to me
More beautiful to me
Than anything I know, you’re alive
So beautiful to me
More beautiful to me
Than anything I know, you’re alive

You’re alive, you’re alive, you’re alive!

So beautiful to me
More beautiful to me
Than anything I know, you’re alive
So beautiful to me (And it doesn’t get better)
More beautiful to me (Now even more than ever)
Than anything I know, you’re alive
So beautiful to me (And it doesn’t get better)
More beautiful to me (Now even more than ever)
Than anything I know,

One, two, three, seven
Track Name: Be All We Can't Be
Born with a plastic spoon
Adults are much too busy
Father loves a PC more than me

Who wants to be a victim?
We give but are not given
We take but are not taken seriously

By some weird twist of fate
Youth is wasted on the young

Be all we can’t be (Be all we can’t be)
Be all we can’t be (Be all we can’t be)
What if I can’t be me?
Left all alone to figure out how to
Be all we can’t be

A woman’s liberation
A man who was always free it seems
A land of liberty, but no one ever told me
Are we supposed raise our parents?
It’s not me who said that we should
Reach for the stars, follow our dreams and

Be all we can’t be (Be all we can’t be)
Be all we can’t be (Be all we can’t be)
What if I can’t be me?
Left all alone to figure out

Solo

By some weird twist of fate
Youth is wasted on the young

Be all we can’t be (Be all we can’t be)
Be all we can’t be (Be all we can’t be)
What if I can’t be me?
Left all alone to figure out how to
Be all we can’t be (Be all we can’t be)
Be all we can’t be (Be all we can’t be)
What if I can’t be me?
Left all alone to figure out how to
Be all we can’t be
(Ontario!)
