5 am came early as I thought it would. All the recyclables were there as I knew they would be and wouldn’t you know it, the mountain was still there to drive down and up again. All is well.
Tell that to my back and you may get a different reaction. Today’s song is a quickie, I’ll admit it. I’ve got several really good one’s brewing and I like to save them for days when I can spend some real energy on them. I’ve got one more day to go this week with the hard labor, so maybe they’ll pop out this weekend.
Maybe it’s the immense yard project I’ve taken up (a 700 foot wooden fence) but I’m feeling kind of funky today. This one didn’t turn out as good as it started. I did another Minute Men sounding tune last week if I’m not mistaken. Maybe I need to break out some old fireHose and Minute Men re-appreciate Mike Watt, one of the greatest bassists ever.
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.
