Magic Christian Music

What happens when you put together ex-members of the Flamin' Groovies, the Plimsouls, and add a drummer who's been in every powerpop band that has ever existed? You get Magic Christian! Their sound veers more toward 60's garage punk and R&B, but they can put a nice melody together when they want to. They have one disc out now on Repeat Records, with a new one in the works that will come out on the Cynics Get Hip label.

Here are the boys performing live at SXSW:

Who's the vocalist?

He's a ringer for the guy in the Chocolate Watchband.

Wow.

You HAVE Steve, you just doan remember - I've been raving about them for a while. Have seen them twice in recent months - man, I could watch Clem Burke all night. It's like Keith Moon never went away!
(And CJ kinda reminds me of you...)

Great Blog! Check out this new Christian band that just released their first album. From what I heard on the samples site, they sound really good.
