Best Place To Hear Church Music With God, Amplified - 2002
HOUSE OF GOD WHICH IS THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD
In the wake of a 1997 Arhoolie comp, the foot-stomping "sacred steel" guitar tradition of the Pentecostal HOUSE OF GOD WHICH IS THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD has developed a following among blues fans and rock pros like Steve Gadd and John Medeski. The three-piece at the congregation across the street from the Gowanus Houses, however, belongs to 12-year-old drum prodigy Jerome Graves, who chases the devil out of Brooklyn with his own music. The tiny congregation is warm and welcoming; the service runs about two hours.
