I heard DA for the first time in the early 80's. A friend of mine gave me a tape with Alarma on one side and Doppleganger on the other. I loved it right away. Soon became familiar with Horrendous Disc and the Shotgun Angel also via illegal dubbed cassettes. The first album I bought when it first came out was Vox Humana. I now own legitimate copies of everything on CD and most things on vinyl as well (if they were available on vinyl), so I don't feel too bad about the indiscretions of my youth.

My Dad introduced me to DA in the 70's with the first DA album and then Shotgun Angel. Both my parents (now in thier late 70's), loved the Alarma Chronicles, and transitioning from the country stuff to the rock was really easy for both generations. The message to the church in Alarma was something that nobody else in christian music was singing about and nobody was even talking about. I lost touch with Terry and friends for about ten years after that, but learned that they were still producing music from a friend at church. He told me about the Eddies, the Lost Dogs, the Choir and the 77's. It took a while but I finnaly bought up evey cd that DA, Eddies, Terry, the Dogs and Choir have ever done. Just now starting my 77's collection.

Now it's my turn to introduce my kids to DA. My teenage daughters like the country stuff, the little kids like Imaginarium and the crazy stuff from the Eddies. My nine year old loves Alarma #1. My teenage son doesn't like DA. (He likes crap - no accounting for taste - hopefully he will outgrow this phase and acquire an appreciation for real music.) If anybody cares, I have seven kids - six girls and one boy.

A few weeks ago, I had the Lost Dogs come to my church (Rock Creek in Derwood MD) and convinced about fifty friends to come and check out the Dogs. Many cd's were sold and several new fans were made. Even my wife, who thinks I'm a DA nut, enjoyed the concert. She's starting to listen to the Dogs without me putting on the cd!!!!


DA ROCKS!!!!!!!

For reference, I was born in 1966.

While I was in high school in Camden County (Georgia), the local Christian bookstore in St. Marys had accidentally acquired a copy of Doppelganger the year it was released. I bought it because I like the cover; it looked different, & in high school I was different, by a mixture of nature & choice. I had never imagined music & words like these, especially since we had just read T.S. Eliot in class (about the only decent thing we did read). From that point on, I was hooked.

I've since acquired Alarma on CD & Shotgun Angel on cassette. I stayed current until after Motorcycle was released. Then this past Christmas, my sister gave me Mr. Beuchner's Dream. Not only did it renew my interest in DA, but it was something I had never thought would exist: an album that I may actually like better than Doppelganger.

P.S.-- pizzalero, are you still here in Athens?

My kids used to laugh me off as a DA fanatic (which I am). Then I gave my eldest (then 13, now 15) an assignment to do a "literary analysis" of the Alarma Chronicles. Once he really took time to listen, he loved it! Now he laments the "lame lyrics" of the CD's he used to listen to. After we saw the Dogs in concert, the kids bought a CD and had all the guys sign it. So they all love the Dogs now. They also think the Neverhood is very cool. They think Uncle Stonehill's Hat is hilarious and often re-enact the dialog from it at the dinner table. Great music/art transcends generational differences! These guys' work is truly timeless.

I think sometimes people are put off by the strangeness
of their music at first, but if they give it a chance they
will 'get it'.

And really it's not all that strange, it's just strange compared
to what people normally listen to.

When we started going back to church in like 1980, we
literally dropped all secular music for a while and started
listening to praise music... thats what we were exposed
to.

So we went from;

"I want to praise you Lord, much more than I do..
I wan to praise you Lord, much more tha I do...
learn to seek your face, and the goodness of your grace...."

Right to;

"Central theme, the most important thing
Central theme, the tie that binds together
Central theme, every line is breathing
Central theme, another heart receiving..."

Yowza! Culture shock. Christian music... that is as good as
the classic rock albums we listen to before...and not just
Christian music, Christian music that is deep and real.

We got it from
unclestonehill.com
listed on the links page of this site, and also run by audioris!

It's a great CD. I like it just as much as our kids. I think most anyone that wasn't too uptight and straight-laced would like it.

I was searching for some Xian Tunes that were worth listening to. I bought "Rock around the world" as a sampler. It had "Home permanent" on it and I was hooked. However, it would be like 15 or more years later before I found a copy of "Vox" and heard the entire thing.

My school Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

"She had a beer as an evening snack,
when the 'scripture man' planned a sneak attack,
suspension's the buzz out at Wheaton,
as she packed her bags and gathered her books,
'scripture man' gave her that lustful look,
yes lust is his brew but no one sees through,
his minty fresh breath ain't reekin'....."


I was at Wheaton College from '80 to '84.

DA had a great concert on campus in September '84. That was what initially turned my wife OFF. The Doppelganger songs were just too weird for her. And they very nearly didn't get their money because they openly mocked the college policy of no dancing with "Dance Stop". We were all dancing in the stands, policy notwithstanding. It was an unforgetable night.

horrendous disc - bought it knowing nothing of the band... '82 (I think?)

the cover grabbed my attention - took it home and put it on the turn table and was absolutely blown away... put away the degarmo and key, servant and petra - kids I found something that intrigued my mind and gripped my heart!!

no turning back within a short time I acquired alarma! and was totally hooked...

it would be many, many years till I heard the country stuff - but it was amazing to me how the b side of shotgun hinted at the changes toward HD...

Daniel Amos is without a doubt a mainstay in my life and they never fail to intrigue, inspire and surprise me with their creativity, their challenging and insightful lyrics and their wide spectrum of sounds and textures.

DA da Daniel Amos - I am truly grateful that I stumbled across them early in my search for meaningful music...

ps - 11 in '77 - and my alma mater (Messiah College) missed the cut in pass the beer... (bummer!).

I had a pastor who would say that too. He is no longer a pastor either.
