22/4/2013 ‘Religion’ tracklist

One coffee into an early morning, soaking up garage sounds as I belatedly get round to listing the contents of The Kitchen Sink’s short immersion in music connected, sometimes extremely loosely, to the often thorny topic of religion. The diverse selection aired no doubt both tickled and grated, but, having played it not so very long ago, this time Crass‘ vitriolic diatribe ‘Reality Asylum’, was left off the menu. Instead, these were the eleven tracks which survived some late cuts:

1)JOSEPHINE FOSTER – CHILD OF GOD /from ‘Blood Rushing’/ Fire Records 2012

That for a long time extremely rare gem from Kentucky outfit Top Drawer brought the show to an end. Thanks are due to Saar Yachin of Pissuk Rachav for the copy of Eretz Hakidesh – much-appreciated!
As another garage nugget begins, it’s time to draw the curtains on this. Til next time, wish anyone reading this many an uplifting sonic experience, S.
