Goner Message Board / ???? / Gospel punk?
Posted: Feb 2, 2010 3:49 pm
 
Any bands that really play "gospel punk" (if that's what you want to call it) other than Reigning Sound/late-period Oblivians? Stuff like "Live the Life" off 9 songs?

TBN Channel 40-3 (in Memphis) has all kinds of closet fags that fit that description.

almighty defenders I think - I've never actually heard em, but when I peeked in at their show here a few months ago they were wearing gowns and appeared to be testifying.

This kind of interest me. I'm a Christian, a very liberal one, mind you. I have never once heard any good Christian music not played by black people. I love the Oblivians lp, but I don't consider it Christian. It felt more about capturing a sound or emotion. I think the problem is that they don't make the music dark enough. My faith has always been fraught with doubt and conflict. No one ever deals with that shit.

Just to clarify -- I don't mean ACTUAL gospel music as in Christian groups. Just the gospel sound. Checking out Lost Crusaders/Rev. Vince Anderson now.

Really? Do you not like country music? Pretty much all the greats recorded gospel tunes during their careers.

I seem to remember The Neckbones having some gospel style songs too....maybe I'm imagining it.

I saw El Vez do a full Vegas-style gospel show many years ago ... back-up singers & the whole bit. He did any song that could be even slightly interpreted as gospel ... "Faith" & "Jesus Is Just Alright With Me" to name a few ...

Boxing With God was the album.
