Yet another intermittent song post from my ‘Risky Biscuits’ album. We are finally getting near the end. This little diddy is a comedy song featuring the ultra talented Coda Baerfider spouting tongue in cheek spiritual wisdom (in prompt-tu) with the brilliant sax work of Gary Hartle in the background. We recorded the sax in the bath tub!
First let me start off by saying this song in no way reflects my parents, who are well known as the greatest parents of all time. This song started with the line ‘mama was a demon and daddy was from the fires of Hell’ and I ran with it from there. It’s actually a comedy song. Coming from my heavy metal roots I have to hark back to endearing themes like this on occasion, to facilitate my dark humor. Thanks for listening!!
I was going to wait another month or two before I started writing golf songs but this one just kind of came out. I was stepping into my back yard to hit some balls this afternoon and this came to me.
My rock n’ roll Golf comedy CD “Triple Bogey with 17 Holes to Play” is by far my biggest selling album and is an infinite source for perks, tournaments and gigs in the golf industry. I put it out about four years ago with intentions of writing more golf songs and now I have the perfect format to release them.
I was probably inspired by the newsletter from the Carolina Golf Reporters Association that I was reading right before I went outside. Then after completing the song I noticed Tiger was coming back at the Masters. If I would have read that beforehand this song would’ve probably been about Tiger. I think you’ll definitely see one of those in the future however.
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.
