This excellent post on Mefi about “underground” type marching bands includes Atlanta’s own Seed & Feed Marching Abominable… who have been bringing the weird to various shows, festivals, parades and protests for something like 30 years. The last time I saw them was in 1994, when they came marching down the aisles during a local music show that was a fantastic re-interpretation of Jesus Christ Superstar. (It was just music, not a play.) Here are the Abominables doing the song “Hosanna,” from that show. While I’m at it, here’s the Opal Foxx Quartet backing Emily Saliers on a kick-ass version of “I Don’t Know How To Love Him.” (Note that the part of Jesus in this show was sung by the other Indigo Girl, Amy Ray.) The last two links will be good for seven days.
