Lars Mars was described by one long time fan as Perfectly Imperfect.

The band formed in high school, playing local dances and parties before graduating to bars (and we even played at a few).

While Ron did a stint in the Army, Dennis and Glenn stormed LA. Bob and Russ worked with other bands and polished their already prodigious skills.

Bob, Den and Ron formed a trio while Glenn was in the SF Bay area with one of its many fine startup bands.

When Glenn returned, Russ joined the first of many iterations of Lars Mars, and that core has remained together since.

Ron Carrier - Drums, Percussion, Vocals
Bob Simpson - Guitars, Keyboards, Vocals
Russell Marth - Guitars, Vocals
Dennis Marth - Bass, Guitars, Keyboards, Vocals
Glenn Rice - Vocals, Harmonica, Sax

Jeff Lorello - Lars Mars Emeritus

We humbly present our tunes for your entertainment.

Middle of the Night
What do you see in the middle of the night?



psychedelic pop
h h

Fallin' Hard
Fallin' Hard for you,
Look out below, save the women and children.
Fallin' Hard for you,
Just like I jumped from a ten story building.




Alternative Pop Rock
h h

If You'd Had the Time
Would things have turned out differently
If You'd Had the Time?




Classic and Progressive Rock
h h

I Wanna
I wanna conversation pit;
A place where we can talk and sit.
Slip down in our beanbag chairs,
Forget about our earthly cares.




Alternative Pop Rock
h h

Everything She Does
She's bustling down the boulevard,
Her heart sewn on her sleeve.
No evidence to point to,
But you know that she believes
Everything she does, she does for love.




Beatles Pop
h h

Down Like the Rain
Cold heart, cold hand,
Cold tears that ran
Down like the rain.
Featuring Bob on lead, Glenn sings this one.




Classic and Progressive Rock
h h

Come a Little Closer
Don't be running out my door.
Come a little closer,
You're the woman I've been waiting for.




Alternative Pop Rock
h h

The Young Fool
A sound, a smile, a shadow's flickering light,
A moment's brief hesitation.
The time it takes to watch a bird taking flight,
Enough to make his mind roam, taking it home.




Alternative Modern Rock
h h

I Saw You
Summer night, the world is humming; In the bridge lights, I see you coming. Warm mist rises from the river below.



Folk/Acoustic Rock/Americana
h h

Twenty Dollars
Got Twenty Dollars, can't half buy your love....



acoustic blues rock
h h

She Was A Driver
Two roads in a yellow wood Well, what was I to do? When there she stood right betwixt 'em both singing: "Baby, how do you do?"



Classic and Progressive Rock
h h

bitstream
Speed of light, speed of mind.
Speed of everything, by design.
I'm caught in the bitstream, can't break the chain.
Everything you do, you do again and again.




Rock
h h

Summer Sun
Summer Sun warms the fields. The river flows; turns the wheel of their lives. Summer sun riding high.



Alternative Modern Rock
h h

That's Not Hockey
Russ wrote and sang this one.



Country
h h

Rubber Canoe
Just trying to catch myself a fish
Floating out in my Rubber Canoe.



Not a Golden Kayak, but it floats.




Country
h h

Take Me to My Home
Interplanetary genocide, conquest and a broken space jockey.



Alternative Retro and Psychedelic
h h

DeadBeat Daddy
Bob's the center of attention on this tune with his fine guitar work and lead vocals...



Rock
h h

I'll Come Courtin'
You're a velvet parasol.
I'm a freshly painted wall.
We know nothing, we know all.




Alternative Country
h h

Imani
Imani come on, come on out
Come on out and play.
Imani, come out and play with me today.
Imani, come out and play with me today
I'm outside your window and I won't go away.




Alternative Pop Rock
h h

GetAway Clean
A live rehearsal take (complete with some stray pops, buzz, hum and strained vox). Kurt Kurtley added the cool Garth Hudson organ later.



Live Performances
h h

Gotta Love Somebody
Some really exceptional guitar work by Russ on this tune by Jeff. Jeff sings and plays bass.



Classic and Progressive Rock
h h

This Side of the World
It's not about politics.
It's not about geography or borders..
It's about a state of mind...
We hope it's made your world a little better for having listened. Thanks




Alternative Pop Rock
h h

Hey Glenn I don't visit IAC much anymore, but I wanted to drop by and thank you for the kind words you left last month.

I'm still doing music, but don't participate much here.

Nice to have the warmth return to CT after a bloody hell of a winter! Hope you're having a great Memorial Day weekend ... which I am having as I write. I finally had two seconds of respite to sit and just create.

Be well, and talk later, bud. Kev-

Hi Glenn,

Kool post about dyson, that fella gets around.

Dunno if you recall, a few years ago, there was a PBS show, features cutting edge scientists, dyson was on there, what a joker...

Thanks for the message. At the moment, I can't play ANYTHING on IAC and the slide show seems to have failed, but this could be a separate prob from the one you're having. Last time, the track totally vanished from the stations playing it and that's not the case this time. As Batman said to Jim Gordon regarding The Joker at the end of Batman Begins - 'I'll look into it'.

Hi Glenn,

My name is pronounced like faucet, but with the emphasis on the "set" part. Au"set". Thanks for asking.

Bryon




Village Jammers

9/28/2009 12:27:03 AM
Glenn, I just tonight put together a CD pkg of Jammers and Rgods for you. I'll get them off tomorrow. And, just for being so patient, I'll follow up and burn some Hoolios for good measure.
Once plans are finalized for a Rivergods live recording at the Eugene O'Neill I'll let you know and reserve a couple tix for you.
Mike
