This band is one that brings up the question is it okay to be Christians but not bill yourself as such.
This band is made up of Christian members but they have decided to not make that the focus of the band.
They've decided to take their music into the secular world.
I have no problem with this, when is the last time your cashier or waitress had a sign on that said, "Hello I'm A Christian?"
How about the pizza delivery person?
It will remain a pretty dark world if we only share the light of Christ with other Christians.
About this band David Broyles is at the heart of it. After playing backup for his singer-songwriter wife David then moved onto playing acoustic shows at local coffeehouses.
In 1999 along with three other musicians he formed the band Dr. Pants.
The band went on hiatus in 2001 when all of the other members left the band.
In 2004 though David resurrected the band this time with an all new lineup.
This release is their first with that new lineup. On this release you'll find modern rock music with rich lead guitar parts and crisp vocals.
The CD also features a really solid acoustic ballad for the release's title track, "Gardening In A Tornado."
The CD takes a 180 degree turn for the last track titled simply, "Donuts."
This song has a techno club beat along with rap style lyrics that talk about the tasty snack treats.
This release is filled with little extras that bump it up to the next level of quality. Such as the hand claps found on several of the songs along with great background vocals.
The songs deal with life, love and spiritual issues and are very well written.
This is a great effort from the band and works on many different levels and should cement their future on the music scene.
