The concept of Alien Lake is similar to the popular birthday party drink ‘swamp water’. It’s a little bit of everything all mixed together in the same cup amounting to something ‘other-worldly’ in taste. Although, instead of Orange Crush, Coke, root beer and ginger ale, you have love, ego-crisis, schizophrenic tendencies and coffee. All common ingredients to say the least. It’s an un-conscious reflective work that was written over 4 months and recorded over 8 days in the woods surrounding Alien Lake, BC.
“Johnny de Courcy is a rock and roll tapestry. There are threads of the blues, gilded metal beads, and psychedelic paisley all woven together with the melodies of a bygone era.” – Westender
