I have many times thought of all kinds of bands I wished would get back together.

Mad at the World, Swirling Eddies, Yes, Monkees, tribe called quest, Cyprus Hill, Rage against the machine, Bush etc etc

I have to admit this is not one I had hoped for, but they are back.

New Kids on the Block

Mad at the World: 1987-1998

This is a little known band these days, but probablly in the top 5 Christian bands that have influenced me. They were a band that always reinvented their sound. The first CD was almost like Depeche Mode and Tears for fears…later they went into Goth and hard rock ending their music foray with a 60’s 70’s feel. Brilliant stuff here.
Lyrically it they were very challenging dealing with things like suicide, sex, addiction, drugs and ultimatly hope. It is kind of hard to find the CD’s but many were reprinted and can be found on amazon and other sites like www.radrockers.com.

I recently found out Founder and lead singer of MATW Roger Rose is at it again with some demos online.

This is a band the shaped the way for Christian rock and really needs to be revisited often. Go buy the Cd’s

Here they are live…audio isnt hot, but this song rocks!
