Reviewed by Paul A Harris

Clever name for a clever six-piece youth band who are part of the Joshua (= son of Nun) Generation. Yup! The seven-track cassette has almost exclusively been written by themselves and has been encouraged and produced by the very capable Jarrod Cooper also from East Yorkshire. "Spiritual Flame" stands out as pick of the bunch an bursts alight at the end of side one with a good balance of vocals, clear message and kjembe drum. Side two highlight, "The Lord is Marching", reveals the band's worship side with a catchy chorus. Overall the tape is less congregational worship and more a veritable mix of neat bass, clever guitars, drums and two tone vocals. What do they sound like? Well, imagine Beehive/Phatfish meets Kendrick/Richards, i.e., more unique than 'owt else. They do sound a lot better alive than dead on tape so catch 'em while you can, perhaps at a camp next summer.
