Just when you thought you knew all my eclectic music tastes…
Well, not long after posting my first list of favourite Christian music, I started remembering some of the other weird bands / musicians I used to listen to, and thought to myself ‘how did I not include that one?’
Patience (Herbert The Snail) – Music Machine, by Agapeland
Our church Youth Group used to perform a lot of musicals in various churches around Christchurch, such as ‘Jonah the Musical’, ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat’, ‘The King is Coming Back’, but I loved performing in ‘Music Machine’ most of all.
I used to steal the album from my sisters’ collection, and listen regularly.
This song speaks of turning your back on the world and its’ dreams, and coming to Christ in repentance.
Where Did All The Love Go, by Malcolm And The Mirrors
I loved listening to this UK rock group. They were a little different – not so much a worship album to God, but an album about God.
A mix of the conviction of Keith Green combined with the voice not unlike John Farnham.
By the mid nineties I developed a real love for Blues music.
One of the best Christian Blues artists around is Kaiser, and this track was the main reason I bought the album!
The Great Divide, by Point Of Grace
One of my favourite female Christian groups.
Strong Tower, by Phil Keaggy
Phil Keaggy took a long time to grow on me.
He had a very unique style – not rock, not CCM but somewhere in the middle. I especially enjoy his collaborations with Randy Stonehill.
