" I have but one concern...saving popular music.
Where have all the good times gone? Let's party like it's 1990, cast doom aside, and have a good time. Are you with me?
It's time to laugh again, stretch our wings and fly, to a champagne supernova in the sky.
Newbrit is the new Britpop. Happiness, joy, and innocence have been out of fashion for too long. It's time to dance and laugh again.

The Lemon Song is about Labour MPs tucking in to champagne lunches and sending their children to fee paying schools, exploiting capitalism. Old school Tories proclaiming traditional morals, while keeping their trans side to themselves, and the Freddie Mercury clergyman who told us we'd be in trouble with God if we transgressed- but then was ever so friendly with me!

Marc Lemon Emerging from the semi detached suburbia of Birmingham England, Marc Lemon creates his own brand of melodic guitar pop, with a gritty lo-fi edge, and thought provoking lyrics. Relentless vocal and guitar hooks blend with tight arrangements, in an often swaggering 4/4 groove. Music that you can dance to meets lyrics that make you think, with melodies you cannot help but hum. A retro fashion clothes horse and vintage collector, Marc Lemon defies the cynicism, angst and doom of modern pop in favour of something more humorous, uplifting and innocent.



Marc is working harder than ever in 2024, recording and producing new music, making videos for social media, in between studying music management.

Things are happening on our youtube channel, When not recording songs, Marc loves being in front of a camera. He's been adding videos each month, with 23,000 views on the channel so far, so do subscribe, join us on youtube and with your comments and support we can really get moving!

The Marc Lemon Playlist



Marc Lemon in conversation with 'House Of The Hits' engineer Taylor D.


What is your favourite Carry On film?
There are about 10 of them that I am really into, the classic era for me is from about 1967, through to the mid 70's, so Carry On Matron, Carry on Doctor, and especially Camping are my favourites.
Marc Lemon with guitar I used to think they were really uncool, but then I got hacked off with modern comedy which isn't usually funny.
It's about being clever clever, it's hard hearted and people pretend it's funny while congratulating themselves on their good taste for watching it. I find the sauciness harmless, the terrible gags amuse me and it is a time capsule of a very different time.

What made you decide to write a song about the carry on cast?
My affection for 'the gang'. They are my beloved heroes, and I don't mind taking it on the chin, I am not easily offended.
The actors, Charles Hawtrey, Kenneth Williams, Sid James, Hattie Jacques and Joan Sims, the list goes on and on of great actors in these films.
I like it when Matron is trying to take advantage of Kenneth, while Hawtrey is hiding in the wardrobe smoking a cigar. And also, very importantly, snobs find these films puerile and distasteful, which makes me celebrate them all the more.

Tell me about the song.
I was sat up in bed one night, and made most of it up in my head without touching an instrument. Yes, I didn't touch my instrument at all that night.
Most of my family have passed away, and the Carry On team are almost like a surrogate family, really. The characters are all crazy, and are believable because I'm sure we all know slightly cranky, eccentric people.
The song is influenced by Bob Dylan, The Kinks, Syd Barrett and the guitar overdub is a little bit Oasis, all these classic British pop elements came through.
We recorded it really simply. I like proper tunes, I hope it is like pop songs used to be, full of catchy bits. My heart is in it, I have a lot of affection for the films and characters, and how naughty they were.
Marc.
