Amps For Christ Amps For Christ, a prolific albeit erratic Los Angeles-based group led by instrument builder Henry Barnes, practiced "cosmic-folk" music characterized by the distorted electronic sounds produced by Barnes' home-made instruments. Albums such as the double-LP The Plains Of Alluvial (1995), the 34-song Beggars Garden (1997) and the 39-song double-disc Electrosphere (1999) were cauldrons of very short-term ideas that rarely managed to coalesce.

Thorny Path (Vermiform, 1997) and Circuits (Vermiform, 1999) were even more spartan. The live Songs From Mt Ion (Total Annihilation, 1998) presented them in their natural environment. The double-disc Electrosphere (Shrimper, 1999) sounded like an electronic (and vastly fragmented) version of Six Organs Of Admittance.

The terrible The Oak In The Ashes (Shrimper, 2001) and the mediocre and repetitive The People At Large (5RC, 2004).

On the other hand, Every Eleven Seconds (5 Rue Christine, 2006) greatly expanded the scope of their music both in terms of guests/instruments and in terms of cannibalized styles.
