Still posting from my Risky Biscuits album. This one is crazy, funny and awesome. Mainly because of the incredible band I assembled to play it live in the studio. It’s the same line up as “U Don’t Believe My Traction” except with Jesse Cole on bass and Daniel Marler on guitar lead #2. All of the solos on this are incredible. We stretched it out to over 10 minutes letting everyone shine as bright and long as they wanted. Daniel’s guitar solo is especially great on this one.
The lyrics are quite funny and were inspired by making fun of the X-Files one morning in bed.
Today’s song from the ‘Risky Biscuits’ album marks one of the funnest times in my life collaborating with a ton of musicians and friends in Athens. When this song was recorded, I played guitar for the first time in six months (with help from a physical therapy tool). I had severely broken my arm on a four wheeler and had to cancel more than 40 gigs.
Anyway this song was recorded live in the studio with a huge band. Seth Hendershot on drums, Jesse Cole on bass, John Wayne Tuggle on lead guitar (1st solo), Daniel Marler on lead guitar (2nd solo), Gary Hartle on tenor sax, John Kell on alto sax and Mike Elam on trumpet.
Oh did I mention this was done in one take! Thanks for listening!
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
