I honor of being picked up by the MP3Blogs.org aggregator here’s my second post of the day and part 2 of the Violent Femmes Gospel adventure. As I said in that original Iris Dement Gospel post Gordan Gano of the Violent Femmes joined a Gospel band called The Mercy Seat and recorded one fine record with them in 1987 on Slash Reocrds. It featured Zena Von Heppinstall on lead vocals and Gordan on guitar and vocals. It is a very uplifting record unlike the more dour Gospel record the Violent Femmes put out, Hallowed Ground.
Let Me Ride/Soul On Right
Don’t Forget About Me/I Don’t Need
PS I copied these from vinyl and song 1 merged with song 2 and song 3 with song 4. But they’re all great and stick with “Don’t Forget About Me” until it really kicks in.
