Artist: Amps for Christ

Date Released: June 6, 2006

Label: 5RC

Produced By:


Trying to describe an Amps for Christ album in a brief sentence or two is the equivalent to trying to describe the subject matter of a Henry Miller book; it’s practically impossible because styles/topics change per song/paragraph with abruptness and no indication of what is to come next, whatever happens to be on the mind gets presented. The man behind Amps for Christ, Henry Barnes (formely of Man is the Bastard and Bastard Noise), refuses to stick to a genre from song to song jumping from folk-core to avant-noise to spoken word to hillbilly with absolutely no transition whatsoever. The result is an enticing and confusing album that is not for the faint of heart and definitely not for anyone looking for any kind of consistency. The individual songs though are pretty damn good ranging from a light mariachi attuned with an electric guitar on #6, classic fuzz rock meets plucked acoustic on #3, scot-core(?) on #9, electro-funk on #15 and so an and so forth. Fun, unceasing and completely ridiculous, Amps for Christ always keep things interesting. Mpardaiolo
