CHRIST ON PARADE - LOUD AND LIVE - KFJC PIT 08/15/07 CD (PRANK 098)
Some live records are not worth the time, but thankfully this isn't the case for this live release of CHRIST ON PARADE. Soundwise, it's absolutely fantastic, everything is crisp and clear - but still punk as fuck and definitely a hell of a lot better sounding than most studio releases. As the title states, it was recorded on 08/15/07, after getting back together and the re-release of their old studio material (also available on PRANK RECORDS). CHRIST ON PARADE, were part of the sound track of my youth, that helped shaped my outlook on life - while giving me some incredible hardcore punk at the same time to keep me sane and vent my frustrations to. I bought their records back in the day as they came out, I still have them and I still continue to listen to them. The quality of the songs is top notch and their anger is still there. The lyrics of the songs are included, which are as relevant (if not more so) today as they were in the 80's. The hatred of corrupt government, which is still as bad today - only the names and faces have changed. All my faves are here, which include "Chaos Breeder", "Drop-out", "Teach Your Children Well", "Joshua Brown" and many more. Their songs are memorable, individual and CHRIST ON PARADE still remain one of the best bands I have ever being introduced to. If you already like them and are weary of live releases, fear not - you will love this. If you've not heard them, then rectify that and check them out. It's also available on LP too.
