Take Your Medicine

A spoonful of sugar, or anything sweet, helps the medicine go down. And we all have to take our medicine sometimes.

I understand, usually, that it’s all for the best to take my medicine, to ward off the diseases and evil spirits that are always waiting at the gate for the slightest weakness to allow them access.

But sometimes the evil spirits find their way into the sugar. When that happens you need an extra strong dose of medicine. A dose that doesn’t slam the door in the face of the blues but invites it in, pulls up a chair by the fire for the demon, and takes it apart, piece by piece. It takes medicine that doesn’t just treat or cure a disease. It takes medicine that disputes the very existence of disease.

Take a hit of this and see what it does for you.

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
