I’m taking it all the way back to ’94 or ’95 on this one. Hiro Noodles (aka Jeramy Lamanno) and myself in my parents basement making our theme song on the Tascam 8-track. Good times. We went on to make a very eclectic tape called Mealtime Brown around this time. I was still in college, so this was probably around the holidays.
Thanks for listening. You may need to turn this one up louder since it’s pretty old school.
I can’t believe this is what came out today after an intense work day and the two hour commute. I even thought I was getting the flu this afternoon and by the time I sat down in front of the computer to start the song for the day I was not feeling real energetic.
I resisted the urge to go lay down which may have been for the night and grabbed the bass and started the song. I still don’t have my amp so I’m having to do things a little differently, luckily I like different. Now I’m feeling better but I am definitely ready for bed and was hoping to have come back out to the studio to finish the vocals way earlier.
I did manage to recruit Adair, PJ’s, Snuggie and all to come lend me some old school motown sounding backing vocals.
I’ve really been digging the dance stuff I’ve been doing so I continued that trend.
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.
