Jesus Fucking Christ - 2006 Demo

Jesus Fucking Christ
2006 Demo




I've been going through files and straightening up lately. During this cleaning process, I found two reviews that have never been posted online. They slipped through the cracks somehow. Here's the second of the two: Jesus Fucking Christ. This review originally appeared in No Funeral #1. -BNF

Hailing from the bay area is punk rock super group Jesus Fucking Christ. To get this out of the way, the band is Larry from The Rickets, Jamie from Pitch Black and Dave from Neurosis. That said, Jesus Fucking Christ sounds nothing like those bands.

Jesus Fucking Christ play classic bay area punk with elements of northwest hardcore, specifically Poison Idea and The Accused. They keep it simple without being boring, which is a feat most bands can’t pull off.

The five-song CD (available from the band for $2 [not anymore -ed.]) eschews any modern elements or trends, instead choosing take it back to a time when punk rock was music for outsiders. Jesus Fucking Christ are ugly, raw, and jaded.

They are also very talented. With their musical skills honed over the years in their other bands, the 2006 Demo sounds classic without sounding dated. From the blistering “Deadly Levitation” to the rocking “Intromental”, Jesus Fucking Christ are a breath of fresh air to everyone who’s sick of all the cookie-cutter crap clogging the shelves for your favorite record store. Do yourself a favor and pick up this CD.
