Koresh was Jesus, Damnit! The Indelicates are Back!

album imageIf you like music, you've got to check this out. The Indelicates, and indie British band, just released its third album, the daring concept musical David Koresh Superstar. If the word "blasphemy" is part if your most commonly used vocabulary, you might want to avoid this masterwork, but otherwise it's a genius mishmash of punk, country, pop, and straight-out rock.

David Koresh Superstar explores the idea that the Waco wacko, whose heavily-fortified compound was burned to the ground by the ATF in 1993, was the messiah he claimed to be: Koresh was the Second Coming of Christ. As an atheist, I don't even believe in the first coming, so take it for what it is: what we have here not so much a brilliant revelation as it is a terrific fantasy exploration of the insane - a Ziggy Stardust for the modern generation.

You can get David Koresh Superstar at Corporate Records for what you wish to pay, from £3 (about $5) and up. You set your price. If you're a real asshole, you can get the whole thing for free, but if you do you're shitting on fine art.
