While researching this week’s featured group, I stumbled upon a Podcast that I thought would be beneficial for anyone who wants to know more about Curious Fools. If it wasn’t for the name and Read album cover, this band might have garnered a larger following and subsequent longer career on tour. Nonetheless, the song Pull is the Christian version of the Stairway to Heaven as band members were heavily influenced by Led Zeppelin.
He who possesses the Son has that life; he who does not possess the Son of God does not have that life. 13 I write this to you who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) the name of the Son of God [in [c]the peculiar services and blessings conferred by Him on men], so that you may know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that you [already] have life, yes, eternal life, 1 John 5:12-13.
Curious Fools goal was to reach a secular audience. However, there were still Christian leaders who believed all rock music was of the Devil so if it wasn’t for Gotee Records I would have never heard of this band. Rather than a one hit wonder like Tom Hanks film That Thing You Do, Curious Fools’ Read album contains classic songs like Angel, Mess, Take Me Back and Pull. I hope you enjoy the unique sound of Curious Fools, Led Zeppelin Lite.
