raised listening to DA... Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

uh, this may seem to be a random post, but I just want to give a huge shoutout to DA and all of their fans. you guys are incredible. I've been listening to DA ever since I was a wee lil' one (specifically, Alarma! and Doppelganger), and I'm still hooked today. I recently got the Alarma bookset off of ebay, and I've had Mr. Buchener's Dream for quite some time... wow. this music is absolutely incredible.
also, if any of ya'll could visit my website, give me some feedback, etc... that'd be greatly appreciated. Right now I have an audience of about 9 people.
anyway. God bless! keep it going!
in Christ...

but I like to think not.

Its just when you try to explain this wonderful fascination with a 25+ year old band whose marketplace is well, I dont know what it is, jist what it ISN'T.

Well, that makes 2 of us that were raised on DA from a young age. I was a wee one myself when my parents would play Shotgun Angel, Doppelganger, Fearful Symmetry, Horrendous Disc & Alarma (Both of which were released the year I was born). I've been hooked and influenced musically since. Terry and the boys proved you can make good music without having to conform to the standards of radio.

The DA fanbase, was at one time pretty large I think. From the
time we started working with them to now, there has been a
growing customer base thats now in the thousands. And we
still get emails occassionally from old fans who are still fans that
just now stumbled across the site. And there is a whole world of
new fans connected to the Neverhood/Tennapel projects.
But its almost like somewhere in the late 80s, the fanbase all got
scattered and lost and none of them knew where DA went. A
few were able to keep track, but some figure out where DA is
years later and have to get caught up.

The first Cornerstone we went to we talked to Dan Michaels
a while about ideas on how to advertise to get back some of that
fanbase. Where do you advertise to do it? Maybe they are not
all internet savy, what kind of magazines do they read? Radio?
I don't think they are lost fans forever, because when they find
the site they are happy to stumble across it. They didn't want to
lose track. We occassionally get a big order of like 10 CDs as these
people have to get caught up.

I really do wish we had more Alarma Booksets in stock, we've
discsussed doing a softcover edition when the funds are there.

My personal opinion is, there used to be a Christian Music market
that was built on the Daniel Amos'es, the Randy Stonehills, the
Mark Heards, the larry Normans, the Rez'es.. it was about the message.
It was about Jesus. There was a 'movement'. Then towards the late
80's Christian music became commercial, or started to. The old Jesus
music culture was left behind while the labels and media started
supporting the commercial favorites of the time. Whatever could be
marketed. I think when this happened, the original audience these
guys had fell away. They quit buying the magazines, stopped listening
to Jesus music radio, etc. Sure there is a new audience that buys
all the marketed new bands, but they have "No sense of History".
Somewhere there are people out there that are like us, don't like the
CCM radio... miss the music of the Jesus movement. They just don't
realize these bands are still around because the new market is
not interested in that, so they quit buying what the market was offering
years ago.

To me thats what Cornerstone always was, it was a family reunion
of that old movement. The original vision. It was one festival that
didn't buy into the market, and stayed true to the original culture.
Thats what it was to me.

Its very easy to see if you compare an old Christian Music
magazine from the 70s with one from the 90s. The content
has changed, beyond just the quality of printing. The grassroots
Jesus centered ideal from back then is lost in the flashy
commercial advertisement filled media of today.

I certainly agree with your statement earlier that CCM fans today have no sense of history. But I think it goes deeper. I think the industry as a whole has no sense of it either. Even back in the late 70's/early 80's when I started listening, once a new album came out from an artist, they just seemed to forget that that artist had ever done anything else before that. It was weird.

I'm not so sure I follow you about an ideal lost in flashy advertising. Let's not forget that the vast majority of Christian art in those early days -- music, books, films, TV and magazines -- was embarrassingly bad in comparison to its secular counterparts. I for one welcome some sense of professionalism and excellence, however it can go too far in that direction, too. While the grass roots vibe is cool in a counter-culture sort of way, it can sometimes come across as amatuerish and just plain bad. Blessed are the balanced, as the saying goes.

On the other hand, I've never been completely comfortable with the place marketing and advertising have in the church. Advertising is fundamentally about manipulating people into being discontent, right? It's kind of a strange bedfellows deal, if ya take my meanin'. Smile )

Ahh, great post. I think what audiori was trying to say is that back in the day the magazines tried to show that there was a message to the music. It wasn't about looks (although the DA boys were pretty sexy in the 70's Big Grin ) but now it is all about the next Christian Brittney Spears or other secular wannabe.

I have my own beliefs about how marketing and advertising have no place in the church and how I am sickened by the Christian industry machine that sells Christ but I will save that for another day Big Grin

now I am going to counter with an observation..


If you have Cornerstone 84, (and the Anaheim Show) take a minute to look at the differences between the bands- and the audience. It is AMAZING!
The audience looks well, pretty much like Napolean Dynamite.

there are no pierced ears, no intentional hairdos (which we STILL dig, Dr Love) and no rather cool clothing (like a purple and black silky shirt) in the audience..that you can see.

What does this mean?- well ,I'm not sure, cept I recall looking more like the audience then too (after all , I was a churchie)

the early CCM bands represented (IMHO) " Hey- look at these tremendously cool people - they love Jesus just like me"

I think there is now perhaps less distinction between band and audience..and thats good, but I wonder what kids think as they watch?
I only know how I felt.

anyone else hava a thought on that??
