GoodTrash Praisedown Presents: Jesus Christ Superstar

29Mar

What is this a crossover episode? Indeed it is! The sweet boys from The Praisedown, Heath Huffman and Alex Sanchez, join the GenreCast to discuss the 1973 musical Jesus Christ Superstar. 

As we near Easter Sunday, we thought what better way to celebrate than to join forces with GTM's resident CCM aficionados. A good time is had as the Mega Powers unite to bring you a podcast of Biblically-epic proportions.

Gettin' Down with Jesus Christ Superstar

We have recently been discussing ways to cross promote our shows, as well potential future projects, and somehow we landed on the idea of an Easter Crossover episode. It just made sense. So, we all got together and made it happen. We recorded this episode immediately after we all sat down to watch Jesus Christ Superstar. It was a first-time watch for everyone except Dustin.

Jesus Christ Superstar tells the story of Passion Week over some psychedelic 70s rock. Focusing on the relationship between Christ and Judas, the film brings many pertinent questions about the narrative to light, while also framing within a surreal context that allows it to touch on 1970s' current events.

We kick the show off as we always do with our quick reviews. We nix the game this week so Heath and Alex can deliver their Tune Talk segment. They discuss how the music is constructed within the film and how it affects the narrative. We then move into film analysis to talk formalism, theology and more about the music.

It's a good time.

Well, look's like the stone is rolling away. We'll see you next week!
