Blower Pow

Description
I’ve submitted two songs in one week. The problem with that is that no one will want to hear the second song. Especially because the title of the other was “This Song Sucks.” Oh well, that’s the way it goes.

I did take the photo. I used to shoot for a number of skiing and mountaineering periodicals. I don’t do that so much anymore. I’ve switched to film and HDTV. Hopefully after this season I can put up some video.

It’s almost ski season!!! I can smell it!

Lyrics
Blower Pow

Two feet of new on a face so clean
Over the head blower and mean
Here the mountain kisses the sky
I push off and learn to fly

The roar of the descent
Like a spring unwound
The wind is deafening
Yet I don’t hear a sound
Locked in the moment
The mind is set free
The force of the turn
Pulled by gravity

(chorus)
Free is the drop
Free is the fall
Free is the pow
Blower for all
Free is the drop
Free is the fall
Free is the pow
Blower for all

A stick drop on a cold winter’s day
With lots of fresh we know how to play
Our boards are waxed and that’s a fact
Beacons beeping and shovels in our packs
Ready to rage on snow packed peaks
Feeling the boards rebound under our feet
Losing the mind thrashing blower snow
Higher, further and faster we go

We climb for the goods
Where no one else treads
The goal is the fresh
That blows over the head
The search for blower
Never quite ends
We come back for more
Again and again

(Chorus)

You always take me back to those great rock records of the 70s.

Thanks man
for dropping by. It's hard for me to break out of that classic sound. Part of it is that I'm really partial to vintage sounding gear. I just like classic tone.

Unmistakeable eddie
You have developed a sound so cool and recognizable. More so than most which is great. I seem to flit between styles. I wish I could settle.
Strong song man.

Thanks Ed
for the kind words. You are the man!

Some day I'll p0ut out a song that you'll scratch your head and say "That couldn't have been a fasteddie song." Well... perhaps not. HA! Thanks for listening man!

Man...
you be in high gear with this! You've got the market cornered in this line Mike--all around great job on this (and I'll have you know, yours is the very first song I listened to here with the new headphones I got for my birthday--this sounds great inside my head!) Thanks again for the kick here! Michael

I'm so glad
that your headphones lived through the experience. fasteddie songs could possibly void the warranty.

Thanks MJK for having a listen.

Fantastic track, diggin' your vocals & the lyrics are cool. I love Winter, not a huge skiing fan, but it's fun to watch. Great stuff, you rock!

for dropping by! YOU ROCK!

I figured out how to set up my new preamp for guitars after this song. So watch out for better guitar tone soon to come.

I'd say the new gear is dialed in. Gives it a warmer sound. I'm with you on ski season. Working on the legs now, nothing is tougher on the knees!

Thanks dave_b
Yeah man. That's why I love backcountry so much. I would rather climb for 8-10 hours for one great big descent than pound my knees at the ski area all day long.

Thanks for dropping by... May you have a most triumphant ski season!

I have never got skiing !
I cannot keep my feet together on an ice rink so I would not tempt fate by taking to powder.......however I do love the snow and so would quite happily sled or toboggan,unfortunately we get that sort of weather in the UK once in a googleium....however your song conveys the feeling and sense of the slope quite well,great driving beat and guitar pushes it all along nicely.Greateroony.

Ya I'm waiting for ski season too! Been working out, getting in shape all that!

Perhaps
having a style could be limiting in a way. That leaves yourself more versitile.

Excellent! Have an awesome season!

New toys?
Sounds like ya got a new mic. eh? This tune sounds a bit like Sick Pow, but I think I like this one better. the lyrics really tell us how much you love your sport, I'm jealous,what a feeling it must be to drop into that scene!

Thanks Robby
I never really liked the way Ridin Sick Pow turned out. I kind of wanted the song to be considerably more edgy.

I still have a ways to go on the new gear. I've finally figured out how to get the most out of the opticompressor on the UA preamp for distorted guitar. Future songs will be fully cranking now.

here
this has a lot of energy -
unleashed perfectly -
and better than B.O.C.
but their oysters were kind of tastey
neat guitar is kind of like U2's
harmony vocally far and then close intertwining lovely
I think it is
great fun !

I get a lot of the BOC comparisons lately. Must be the tone on my guitars.

hackneybloke said 2558 days ago (October 21st, 2010)
this song sucks
no wait....the other one sucked. no wait..this one sucks too. no but seriously mike....i have to compliment you big time on the lyric delivery....you've managed to find a way through to the end of each phrase with consummate ease. the result is that you sound like the real deal; musically you always have been, but your vocal delivery has let you down. but this is truly EXCELLENT.....apart from the 'a stick drop' section...which still sounds clunky. sort that out and you've got a really top-drawer creation. ok, so it's rock (which as we all know is music to pick your nose to)....but even so, you've got lots of distractions and diversions to keep it interesting....and dude!!!! you're doing really cool vocal harmonies that go in opposite directions to the main vocal (you've obviously been listening to bach). the lead solo at 2.30 is seriously exciting and urgent and manages to lift the whole out of 'rock' and into something way more interesting to pick your nose to. great ending. great track...seriously mike. one thing though...you're writing tunes about stuff like ski-ing. i don't know what else you have in the bag....but this track would really take off if you made it less about powder...and more about politics...or some other shit that is important.
but anyway, going back....you've really shone here. deep bows of appreciation. i'm going to listen to your other song that sucks now.

Love that new guitar sound you are sporting here. Sounds a little like Megadeth to me, (High Speed Dirt). Obviously not in every way but the overall vibe drives like one of their songs. You can hear the warmth the new gear is giving your songs. Great job here!

I have to get used to the opticompressor. It is a little touchy. I think I hit the high end a bit and will have to tone it down in future work.

Would love tho hear this live in a club (specially after a drink or two)! One thing tho: is that "tingly" sound in the vocs on purpose? Sounds almost like too much treble.
