Bunny & The Lakers were an extremely short-lived experimental synth band from Toronto led by songwriter Peter Morgan. They only played live once; fortunately, though, they recorded a fantastic LP, 'Numbers', 500 of which were pressed by Belsize/Caplan/Wymark Records in 1984.
Even though Bunny & the Lakers often get lumped in with the 'synthpunk' scene, only a couple of songs on 'Numbers' approach anything typical of the genre. In fact, the centerpiece of the LP (the 10 minute 'Batlore' opus) shares more in common with Faust than anything remotely redolent of 'punk'.
One of the band's two vocalists, G.B. Jones, later
went on to be in 'Fifth Column'; further on down the line, she became
a filmmaker who directed and appeared in several underground movies,
including a 'girl gang' movie called 'The Yo-Yo Gang' that came out
The song 'Sandy' shows all the playfulness/weirdness/noisiness of the band:
'Weekend Guest' is less playful, but still plenty arresting. And sure-as-hell-not-'synthpunk'.
