The New Christs are an Australian hard rock band formed in by founding mainstay, Rob Youngeron lead vocals. The group's first studio album appeared in AugustDistemperwhich McFarlane opined was "explosive" and "remains the definitive statement on the band's sound and style. It contained a wealth of powerful tracks. All in all a good album. Play it as a substitute for clobbering someone.
The tension the musicians create in each track is spine tingling. It's an exhausting album to listen to. To my ears, it stands as the greatest, raging Australian rock'n'roll album. The New Christs were temporarily put on hold in early while Younger toured with a reformed, Radio Birdman. Harnessing and driving the band's considerable The Cure - Yellow Mood, Younger is ever on the brink of immolation, expressing a diseased soul, wracked by the compromises and humiliations of love.
Long may we revel in his purgatory. The Barman of I Bar website caught their gig in May in Wollongongwhere they played "a Greatest Hits package with none of the new songs from the Younger canon A solid hit-out by a new line-up with versatility and style Europe's going to be in for a fine old time. Sure, we had some degree of influence because so many people have told me over the years they started their group after hearing us.
The group's fifth studio album, Gloriawas released in May Jeff Glorfeld of The Age rated it at three out of five.
Production was an exercise in economic rationalism — live crowds are small and labels with cash to burn are thin on the ground — and much of what resulted from an earlier session was scrapped. Dominique Genot of I Bar reviewed the group's live album, Livewhich is "[as] live as you hope to see them and I did during the Euro tour. The record was done at the Excelsior Hotel's closing night in Sydney in May, and the thing was quickly mixed by guitarist-keyboardist Brent Williams.
The album's got a big sound, with Dave Kettley's guitar high in the ears. My personal criticisms is that Rob Younger's voice is too low in the mix - also i think there are a few cuts between the songs.
This line-up issued their sixth studio album, Incantationsin June Gus Ironside of Louder Than War rated it as 9 out of 10 and felt Hunting Humans (Insatiable) - Ritchie Blackmores Rainbow* - Stranger In Us All was "a highly melodic album, packed with hooks and insidious tunes, it's a tightly-coiled brute, as claustrophobically dense with detail as it is outright rocking.
