Christ Analogue is an industrial rock group started in 1995 by frontman and producer Wade Alin. They were known for their confident and remarkable live show.[1]

History

Christ Analogue was devised in 1995 by programmer/vocalist Wade Alin. The 1996 release of their debut album, The Texture Ov Despise, earned the band instant respect in the electronic/industrial music scene. For an electronic-based act, they approached their live performances with an unusually aggressive, and often destructive punk ethic.[2] This exciting live act helped them develop a strong following in the Seattle, WA, and Vancouver, BC, areas.

In an effort to gain national recognition, the band booked and headlined their own tours of the United States. Christ Analogue did five national tours within two years, including shows with Sheep on Drugs, 16 Volt, Electric Hellfire Club, Stabbing Westward, and two appearances at the CMJ Musicfest.[3]

After signing to MCA/Cargo/Re-Constriction, Christ Analogue self-produced their second album, In Radiant Decay. Critically acclaimed by both the commercial and underground press, In Radiant Decay made an impact both in clubs and on college radio throughout the US.

Despite these successes, Wade Alin's relocation to New York coupled with the collapse of Re-Constriction Records caused the band's dissolution. However, Alin continued to apply the Christ Analogue name to various remixes, and remains a sought-after producer.[4]

Five years after their apparent departure, Christ Analogue reemerged with the album Everyday Is Distortion.
