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.
As I mentioned in my last blog. I’m trying out a new keyboard for my live shows and I’ll admit my dream is to move to Vegas and perform house music. I love Kraftwerk and stuff like that. That’s probably where this jam came from.
This is half me and half MINIAK the keyboard I’m playing. I overdubbed a few more parts on the initial improvisational track. So for all of you up tempo house music fans this is for you. It gets your blood flowing.
Thanks for listening!! Click the play icon below to hear “Back Roads Directions to the Rave”
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.
