This is the same artist. I had the original LP, I wish it could be re-released on CD.
BTW, I'm wondering if David and family are at the Messianic group in Plymouth?? I'm not that far away, will visit if so!

Does David read any of these posts? The reason I've come to this page is that I heard David's "Hands of God" album back in the mid '80s when I was about 12 or 13 years old. My mum had it on cassette and I played it frequently on my personal stereo. That was nearly 25 years ago and I haven't seen or heard the album since. I am now 37 and although I can't recall the songs, I can recall the style of production and the dynamics of the songs and the very vivid cover. It will be very interesting to hear the album 25 again years later.

Well, not quite sure how these blog type things work but if there is an old guy out there who remembers "that was lucky" and fun times in Manchester and beyond then it would be interesting to hear from ya.

I have thought of you often, in fact I was telling someone recently that the only time I saw Les Moir fired was in the making of Hands of God.
What a great album, would love a copy of the CD, I have lots of great memories of you and especially making the album
Be great to catch up again, I am still in the music business, having lots of fun with people like Matt Redman, Tim Hughes and lots of others.
You were and probably still are a genius writer, a great talent....let's get in touch and catch up, it's been what 20 years?

Dave Eastman you old reprobate!

Glad to see that the "gate" is still open...I was going over some old songs in my head and decided to look them up on line. I found this page eventually and of course was delighted that Chris had found it too - boy did it rain at those gigs!

I'm doing a lot of guitar playing with Phil again, hopefully some gigs in the new year. Drop me a line if you get the chance.

Hi Dave, i remember the impact your music and ministry had upon the church i attended in Whickham newcastle upon tyne. i must have been about 14yrs of age when you came to our fellowship and wonder can you remeber the camping trip to thropton with the youg people from the church? Mark Gorman was one of my friends. i would love to be able to hear some more of your music. the tape i had back then i wore out. i loved resurrection day and give me something to believe in to name a few. wow what an impact you had. remember the white cowboy boots we bought as a pressie for you from the church? godbless you .
