about

When Lorraine Leckie and Her Demons hit the stage at New York’s legendary Mercury Lounge the night of September 29, 2015, nobody knew that this would be this would be the last show that popular New York drummer Paul Triff would ever play. A big fan of psychedelic rock, Triff was looking forward to playing a set of songs from Leckie’s mysterious album The Raven Smiled. While the New York music world lost a great drummer just a few days later, the whole night was recorded and is available here in his honor.

Leckie’s European violinist Pavel Cingl contributes his otherworldly ambience alongside Blues Hall of Fame member and guitarist Hugh Pool and bassist Charles DeChants. This is a set of songs that the band rarely plays live, captured in a moment that can never be replicated.

Track Name: The Man That Walks In the Rain
The Man That Walks in the Rain

I had a party, nobody came, except for the man
The man that walks in the rain
He invited a big black raven, that sang of pleasure and pain
The man that walks in the rain

When I kissed his poisoned lips the lights all went out
Down in the dark I found my sweetheart

Turned on all day, turned on all night, where is my man
The man that walks in the rain
He is gone and the raven song is screaming in my veins
The man that walks in the rain

I had a party, nobody came
Down in the dark I lost my sweetheart
Track Name: Dangerous Friends
Dangerous Friends

My guitar is a heroine
We are dangerous friends
Oh yeah, well c’mon dear
There’s nowhere else in the world but here

Let’s put on some makeup
Dress for the evening
I wanna be so beautiful, make you fall down on your knees

It’s so quiet I can hear the sound
Of your eyes talking out loud
We are in Prague and Berlin
Talk to me my dangerous friend

Let’s put on our makeup
Dress for the evening
When you play your rock ’n roll, it makes me fall down on my knees

You light all my cigarettes
Your a real fine gentleman
C’mon inhale my black perfume
I wanna run away with you

I’ll put on your makeup
Dress for the evening
Lets play our rock ’n roll and bring the demons to their knees
Track Name: Medicine Man
Medicine Man

My little dove, you were born
Under a broken star and I am sorry
Your body’s made of paper, your wings are made of stone
They say you’ll never fly, what the fuck do they know

Please let me take you to the medicine man
He lives up on the mountain, he’s got magic plans
He’ll put you back together, perfect flesh and blood
We’ll fly the sky together and I’ll give you all my love
Track Name: That Ain't Nice
That Ain’t Nice

I love you ten thousand times more than you love me
Baby, that ain’t right
The moon is droolin’, you’ve been foolin’
With that old black magic, baby
That ain’t nice

Pretty soon you’ll see, you can’t resist a woman like me

All the stars are lined up right
Mississippi in your eyes
Baby won’t you take me for a ride

I want you to love me all night, but you turned me down
Baby, that ain’t right
The sun is a liar, you’ve been spyin’ on my misery
That Ain’t Nice

I love you ten thousand times more than you love me
Baby, that ain’t right
The moon is droolin’, you’ve been foolin’
With that old black magic, baby
That ain’t nice

Pretty soon you’ll see, you can’t resist a woman like me

All the stars are lined up right
Mississippi in your eyes
Baby won’t you take me for a ride

I want you to love me all night, but you turned me down
Baby, that ain’t right
The sun is a liar, you’ve been spyin’ on my misery
Baby that ain't nice

Pretty soon you'll see you can't resist a woman like me

All the stars are lined up right
New York City in your eyes
Baby won't you take me for a ride
Track Name: Witches Heart
Witches Heart

You think you are beautiful, you think you are smart
You want to win the witch’s heart

Touch the stars, win the witch’s heart
Nobody ever touched the stars

Stand on the rooftop at midnight
Throw your hands up into the sky

Touch the stars, win the witch’s heart
Nobody ever touched the stars

The witch is a genius and you are a fool
Cry til your bloody soul turns blue

Touch the stars, win the witch’s heart
Nobody ever touched the stars
Track Name: The Raven Smiled
The Raven Smiled

How are you doing, how is the weather
I can’t wait til we are together
The raven smiled, it must be a sign
The raven smiled, it must be a sign

Just for you
Just for you

Write my words in your heart
Sleep by the river under the stars

The raven smiled, it must be a sign
The raven smiled, it must be a sign

Just for you
Just for you
Track Name: Ontario
Ontario

Drank my last shot of the Ontario sky
Tastes like home mixed with goodbye
I always love to come and I hate to go
Cause learned how to walk in Ontario
Yea I learned how to rock in Ontario

Did I ever tell ya about the righteous trees
That reign like a green perfect queen
And that big oak moon born of the virgin snow
You learn to be humble in Ontario
Yea you learn not to stumble in Ontario

Magic and mad
Mystical Land
Wherever I roam I miss you so
Love you so
Love you so

Drank my last shot of the Ontario sky
Tastes so good I wanna cry
Always love to come and I hate to go
Cause I learned the ropes in Ontario
With the beautiful folks in Ontario
With beautiful folks
