Amps for Christ “Every Eleven Seconds” [5RC] (CD)

Claremont, California based Amps for Christ (AFC) is a blender full of tasty-cool mixed-up Merzbow and Charalambides- noise in all it’s forms meets radical folk. Ranger Barnes and Enid Snarb, who is a recording freak and preparer of Hammonds, met in 1996 and they started recording AFC. There have been many collaborators: Tara Tavi singing and playing Chinese instruments, Marz of Pyramids On Mars, Barnes’ brother and dad, as well as many others.

Every Eleven Seconds (Every eleven seconds a vacuum tube warms up and someone, somewhere breaks a guitar string) by Amps for Christ has something for everybody. Electronic noise from rhythmic, to organic, to painful dentist-drill in-the-ear (1, 15, 3, 5, 11, 7), blue grass pickin’ and strummin’ (2, 13), spoken word (4, 8, 12), mariachi (6), distorted bagpipe (9), sitar/tabla (10) and radical folk (14).
