"Michaels House", a tune off the new bats brew album

#02- "Michael's House"

this is the 2nd song on the album.

One of the songs, "michael's house", was a rowdy romp that i wrote back in 1998, for my friend who had recently moved into an older house, in a neighborhood that had been a very nice family neighborhood back in the day,
but had fallen into disrepair over 30 years time, and was known as a 'crack' neighborhood when he moved into it...

he truly thought he would turn the neighborhood around, one neighbor at a time, and pull all his friends that were wanting to buy houses, into purchasing a house near him.

when i wrote the song originally, it was really just a demo, but a celebration of his audacity and belief in the 'good' of people.

he died in that house, about 8 years ago. i'm not sure how, but he had been hospitalized previously, a health issue, i think it was an accident.

now i've written a new version of it, to basically celebrate his life, or as a kind of 'thank you' to the ether.

recording specific info:

bought a new fuzz around the time i started working on this song,
made by Barber Electronics, it's called the "Exacta".
great fuzz, i use it quite a bit in this song.


Michaels House

Michaels house, used to be
Kind of place, yeah, you want to be
Now it’s got a new friend,
Going to be the place again.

Michael is a trusted friend
Favors given, to the end
Road trip taken and he took my queen,
All the way to New Orleans!

Michaels house, was party town
But a friend in need, could hang around
Michael left without a sound
In the afterlife, he’ll be around.

Michaels house, used to be
Kind of place, want to be
Now it’s got a new friend,
Going to be the place again.
