If you're going to tempt fate by taking the Lord's name in vain you might as well have the most raunchy fun you can while doing it, right? The members of Jesus H. Christ and the Four Hornsmen of the Apocalypse certainly sound like a gleeful bunch on their 13-song debut.
Choice cuts include the frothy power pop ode to ladies of the night "Vicki is a Pro" and "Vampire Girls." The best tune, alas, is one with a title we can't print here but has to do with what folks in the Nutmeg State do for amusement, which feels extra naughty thanks to singer-songwriter Risa Mickenberg's girlish vocals.
If you have tender sensibilities when it comes to songs about the fine art of lovemaking or you live in New Haven and aren't getting any, we want to warn you "Connecticut..." is graphic. The rest of you lewd and lascivious types can hear it here.
Or check out JHC when they play the Middle East Upstairs tomorrow night at 9:15.
