First an open letter to any Australian readers Cross Rhythms might have. Please write to us and put us in touch with somebody with the expertise to write about all that wonderful Australian rock gospel albums which keeps coming out (and which is now trickling into the UK via Nelson Word). My digression will presumably have clued you to the fact that our Stephen is another Antipodean rocker we CCM buffs need to make a note of. Get this - Stephen Bennett played UK gigs in 1993 (I know, I know, nobody told us) and is returning in the summer of this year. Catch him at a fest or concert near you for this chap's a seriously talented pop-rocker. My current favourite is the bluesy "City Of Jewels" with the memorable hook "And the lamb light surrounds us all" over some shredding guitar from David Holmes though the slow, anthemic ballad "Communion" is coming up fast. The man is reported to have a powerful ministry in prophetic music. Will you be hearing more about the Aussie muso in your favourite magazine? Does Cummings need a hair transplant?
