Thank You for the Madness, Jack

Thank you for the madness, Jack
And for putting it into words
For simultaneous loneliness and ecstasy
That’s a tricky wire to walk
You must have seen the plummet looming from a long way off
Maybe even childhood
You must have seen a lot of things that most of us cannot
Thank you for the sounds of your ideas
For the creaking in your bones
For the massive abdominal hemorrhage
For scratching one ankle with one toe
For thinking
And trying
And caring
And crying
And puking
And losing
For standing on your head in an upside-down world and keeping your eyes wide open

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.
