Nuggets 308 – Jesus

Nuggets 308 - Jesus

I don’t get to church very often, but when I do its great to be able to sing out loud.  Here is a collection of spiritual funky and bluesy tunes, and some with an indie / rock vibe.

Masonic Wanders

“I call him” is an absolutely fabulous song. There is a clip of this long running gospel quartet band performing this song but its terrible, so instead, this…

Nuggets 89 – Surfs up!

Ross Upchurch (this is not him) was from sunny Wainui Beach. He was (and hopefully still is) a laid back surfer. In the 1980’s he was studying art at Otago University. We took him skiing to Queenstown. I was there when he saw his first snow. Looking up at the Remarkables laced in snow he was overcome. “It’s just like a breaking wave” he said.

My surfing memories involve knee boarding the wild surf at Colac Bay and then struggling to build a fire so we could eat baked beans out of a can. I used to hang out at the Skating Rink at Riverton. At night they blasted loud, distorted Beach Boys tracks and lots of surf guitar into the dark.

I am sure there is a surf film in there somewhere. Here is the soundtrack.
