Sanctified Noise

Punk Rock
Addison, Texas, USA

“From 1989-2001 Sanctified Noise pioneered Christian punk rock in Dallas, TX. At the time there was probably only about four other Christian punk rock bands in the world. Our regular gigs were Theatre Gallery and The Prophet in Deep Ellum as well as Slipped Disc, The Lighthouse Underground, and many youth groups. Sanctified Noise recorded two demos, namely Oops, I Swallowed My Tongue and Grappling With the Electric Bloodhound. Their logo was Fred The Head designed by bass player Craig Sandifer. A highlight of our “career” included playing Cornerstone music festival. We were known for making toast on stage, smashing things, throwing raw fish into the audience, witty stage banter, wrapping Steve's body in cellaphane or aluminum foil and pelting Juan's motorcycle helmeted head with raw eggs during his guitar solo. Other favorite moments included “The Cheese Song” and having The Lead open for us. The Texas Dam Jam was also special and really hot too. In the immortal words of Steve Graebosch, SQUAW!”
