Amps For Christ
Amps For Christ,
a prolific albeit erratic Los Angeles-based group led by instrument builder Henry Barnes,
practiced "cosmic-folk" music characterized by the
distorted electronic sounds produced by Barnes' home-made instruments.
Albums such as
the double-LP The Plains Of Alluvial (1995),
the 34-song Beggars Garden (1997) and
the 39-song double-disc Electrosphere (1999)
were cauldrons of very short-term ideas that rarely managed to
Thorny Path (Vermiform, 1997) and
Circuits (Vermiform, 1999) were even more spartan.
The live Songs From Mt Ion (Total Annihilation, 1998) presented them
in their natural environment.
The double-disc Electrosphere (Shrimper, 1999) sounded like
an electronic (and vastly fragmented) version of Six Organs Of Admittance.
The terrible The Oak In The Ashes (Shrimper, 2001) and
the mediocre and repetitive The People At Large (5RC, 2004).
On the other hand, Every Eleven Seconds (5 Rue Christine, 2006)
greatly expanded the scope of their music both in terms of guests/instruments
and in terms of cannibalized styles.
