Lift To Experience performed at Austin’s South by Southwest festival in 2000 and by the next year they were signed to Bella Union and releasing a double-disc concept classic The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads. Frontman Josh T. Pearson is the son of a Texan preacher; and the album is replete with Christian references and a wall of sound that has biblical proportions. It was momentous and never to be repeated; the band split shortly thereafter. Last year, to every shoegazing fan’s delight, Elbow’s Guy Garvey convinced them to put on a reunion set at London’s Meltdown Festival.
