Crash Rickshaw Crash Rickshaw

It's not often that the folks at God Squad HQ give secular punk fans reason to pay attention to their bible thumping - apart from Frodus, Tooth and Nail bands tend to be subversive clones of popular heathen bands - but Crash Rickshaw is an exception. With the apparent and oh-so-ironic influence of Jesus Lizard and Drive Like Jehu, Crash Rickshaw's sound is a collision of minimalist post-punk and angular math rock. Of course, the lyrics still preach the Christian message (although not as gratuitously as some T&N bands), but for the greater good, and in the interest of advancing the cause of originality and creativity in music, it's something we can overlook.
