Anchor on Weds: British Rock

Allright, everybody. Anchor's exploration of rock and roll continues on Wednesday night for week 3 of our dinner-and-discussion series, “(Can’t Get No) Satisfaction: Human Longing in Rock and Roll.” Like last week, we’ll listen to some great rock songs (with one performed live by our friend Mark Evans) and see how the artists gave voice to these longings. This week's focus: British Rockers Starting with "The": The Who, The Police, The Smiths (With a special focus on Morrissey, a pretty intense dude and a real spiritual seeker who was the lead singer for The Smiths).
Ultimately, we'll ask how the person and message of Jesus might offer a word of hope to people who can’t get no satisfaction. Details: Wednesday, Apr 29, 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at St. Stephen's in Grace Commons. Dinner for $5. Presentation and discussion begins at 7:15. Free childcare in the nursery. Questions: contact Aaron Zimmerman at azimmerman@ststephenschurch.net.

And to get ready, check out this 1988 song, "Every Day is Like Sunday," from Morrissey. Gotta love the hair and fashion.


  1. Have you heard Oasis' Waiting For The Rapture (latest album)? I think its modern example of the songs we talked about tonight.

  2. Haven't heard it... so I will definitely check it out! Thanks for the tip. (Also, who are you?)

  3. It's Amy. As I look into it, actually a lot of the songs (the ones by Noel mostly) on that album (Dig Out Your Soul) relate.
