Cactus by Tom Welty published on 2012/03/20 04:46:45 +0000 Another piece that I had posted on my Associated Content page before their purchase by Yahoo. Recorded in February 2002, just two months after my thirtieth birthday, it was the culmination of my many influences and experiences from the previous decade. There’s elements of grunge, alternative, classic rock, a whole bunch of new age, some hippie jam, and probably some other things as well. The mood of the tune ranges between angry, sad, thoughtful, and triumphant. A perfect summary and bookend to my Twenties.
