Johnny Dowd has posted a stream of Presbyterian Wedding Bells, a track from the handmade 2CD set of rare Neon Baptist recordings, one of the perks of his campaign at Indiegogo (ends within a couple of hours from now). Punk meets rock meets Americana and all Hell breaks loose:
Here’s another live recording of my first band, Neon Baptist — a punk version of “Presbyterian Wedding Bells,“ with Jennifer Edmondson tearing it up on vocals. Recorded at The Nines, Ithaca, NY, in September 1990.
Presbyterian Wedding Bells is a free download.
