Amps For Christ biography
Celtic, folk rock project including Eastern raga influences

AMPS FOR CHRIST can be considered as a combination of many musical styles from noise, experimental to popular, traditional folk music. The concept is all about anti-capitalism purposes, in hippy eccentricity and pseudo-mysticism. Born during the late 90's and mainly focused around the guitarist Henry Barnes (founder of the hardcore/noise band MAN ISHE BASTARD). The experimental nature of the project is clearly mentioned in the intricate uses of amplifiers, electronic gadgets."World" (from Chinese to India), "Celtic", "blue-grass" ingredients come into the mix to procure a more spiritual, soft approach to this rather "anarchic" trip. An eclectic musical exploration which covers a large bunch of styles, but always played with a popular, folk American sensibility. Albums as "The people at Large" and "The Oak in the Ashes" contain exotic instruments and electric raga folk effects. It definitely explores the mystical world of "sacred" Eastern meditative music.

Amps For Christ Indo-Prog/Raga Rock

Review by fungusucantkill

4 stars This genre is rather unknown and untouched. That being said, this doesnt mean that the genre itself is a good one. Amps for Christ was the first Indo-prog band ive ever heard and it reminded me a lot of Prog Folk. This album consists of 23 songs, all of which are no more than 3:30. The tracks consist of drone tones, folk melodies, and lovely higher melodies. This album is one not to dissapoint. If you are a fan of Prog Folk, Art Rock, and some Avant Garde, you can find your place with this album.

Review by philippe

3 stars This album covers a large range of "droning" vibrations, "sweet" acoustic folk compositions and a "buddy" aggressive garage rock...everything played in a rather "neo hippie / semi punk" mood. The album starts with a gorgeous "mystical", repetitive sitar pattern. "Use use use" is a "grotesque", "drunken" rock 'n roll piece. Some songs have a nice, funny "country" folk flavour ("Banjo hymn", "Old Palm Tree"...). A complex band with a lot of capacities, expressing with no restriction pure nervous, noisy rock attacks and sudden "rural" folk ballads. On this last, new effort my favourite tunes are the floating and meditative "Claremont raga" and the "disarticulated", plaintive "noisy" folk rock «Memorial Immemorial". Time to time the advantage of the diversity can be translated to an inconvenient. In fact it's difficult to be attracted by all the musical segments offered by the band...sometimes it's impossible to see the relationship between the different musical sources of inspiration. It creates something strangely controversial.
