My Friends Are Dying - Mark Laurent. In 1986 I did an album called Kindness In A Strong City. I was "on a mission from God". :-) Sometimes you don't know when you hit your peak until long after you've passed it. After 35 years this is still the album that has the longest tail - the one people talk & write to me about all the time, and I'm really grateful that they do. Technically it wasn't my best album, but it mattered. A lot of my friends from the 90s onwards won't have even heard the songs off Kindness, as, being very Jesus-centric, they're not the usual fair for pubs or folk clubs. I was around & close to a lot of young people who got too deeply into drugs in the early 70s - I wrote this for them, and a few get mentioned in the lyrics. The title, My Friends Are Dying, comes from a Ray Comfort book of the same name. http://www.marklaurent.co.nz

Take Me To Your Leader - Mark Laurent. Before I started performing & songwriting in the 'mainstream' from the early 1990s, I'd already had a decade where nearly all the songs I played & wrote were as part of the Jesus movement - I was a kind of evangelist with a guitar, traveling around the country, mostly singing in churches & 'outreach' events, trying to use the music to share my faith. Of course I still do a bit of this, & my core beliefs haven't changed, but doors open & close over time. Take Me To Your Leader is a track that appeared on my first album, which came out (on vinyl) in 1982. When we went in to book the studio (Mandrill) and told the guys we were wanting to record a 'gospel' album the first question was "How big is the choir?" I think they were a bit surprised when we turned up with guitars, amps and a drum kit worthy of John Bonham. :-) This was one of the two acoustic solo tracks I did on that set. I hadn't played this at all in decades but a few months ago I brought it out in a busking situation & it seemed to go well. http://www.marklaurent.co.nz

Rosie - Mark Laurent. There was a nightclub in Auckland in the 1980s called Mainstreet. Around the corner on the brick side-wall of the building was a piece of graffiti - "ROSIE DON'T YOU ACT SO WILLING". My imagination got to work & this song came out of it. I'd always imagined a video clip of a rainy night on the street with shadowy figures slinking along the footpath & taxis dragging slowly up the wet street. In the meantime here's a demo. http://www.marklaurent.co.nz

Man Of Peace (Psalm 120) - Mark Laurent. I put this psalm to music back in 2003 at the time of the second Gulf war. It seems the sabre-rattling is going on again, this time with Iran as the target. Iraq turned out to be needless aggression built on a fabric of lies. Iran may well be the same thing. The iraqi war was fostered by a Christian president - if Iran is attacked we'll have a repeat performance. What does any of this have to do with the prince of peace or his children? I'm sorry that I've felt the need to sing this song again, but 'the times they are not a'changing' - yet. http://www.marklaurent.co.nz

That's What It's Like - Mark Laurent @ Byron Vista Social Club. "The highlight of the entire evening took place when Mark launched into some blues (to a discerning audience in a Blues festival town) during which he played blistering, brilliant acoustic guitar licks, while voice-mimicking lead guitar sounds note for note, nuance for nuance in a masterful display of technique and taste that stands as one of our Club’s most memorable performances to this day. Not only that, but he had ‘em alternately cracking up with laughter or grooving their butts off and clapping. He almost brought the house down!"
