Damn Right, He'll Rise Again

It wasn't until this morning, the day after Easter, that I thought to post this song. Day late, dollar short. Maybe I'm less likely to go to hell now. Anyway, the chorus of this song represents the most bizarre use of religious language as a sexual double entendre that I've ever heard. If you are a Christian and are easily offended, you may want to pass on this song. For the rest of us unwashed heathens, it's purely sacrelicious.

The Gentlemen are a Boston band composed of three-fourths of the Gravel Pit plus Mike Gent from the Figgs. "He Is Risen" is from their second album, Blondes Prefer the Gentlemen. Lucky Jackson wrote and sang this one, so blame him. I'm working on a post about the Figgs, so don't touch that dial.

Hey thanks for this! Anything with Jed Parrish involved in it is worth a listen; and if you get a chance to see The Gravel Pit/The Gentlemen live, don't pass it up--a poorly-attended Gravel Pit show in NJ about 8 years ago is still a standout in my overburdened memory.

You're very welcome, Alex. I highly recommend the Figgs as a live band.
