Idle Cure

Christian music rarely achieves column inches in the mainstream rock press, and that fate also befell late 80s US rock group Idle Cure, despite their obvious musical talents. Comprising Steve Shannon (vocals, bass), Mark Ambrose (guitar) and Peter Lomakin (keyboards), the group produced two albums of splendid AOR for Frontline Records in 1987 and 1988. On both, Lomakin’s multi-textured keyboard playing compensated for the lack of a regular drummer, and the quality of the songwriting was universally excellent, regardless of what critics thought of the subject matter. Tough Love was dedicated to the forthright parental control mechanisms advocated by a number of leading Christian evangelists, and in interview the group were candid about their endorsement of such methods. Nevertheless, the songs on the album were contrastingly dynamic and free of inhibitions, and would surely have attracted wider coverage had Idle Cure not been consigned to the Christian rock ghetto.

I remember hearing a couple of bands in So. California that I loved. The first one dissolved and three of the five members reunited. One of the members was Pete Lomakin, who later joined Idle Cure, which was one of my two favorite Christian metal bands (Daniel Band being the other) before I learned my old friend was part of the band.

Idle Cure was one of our (my) favorite bands during the era of early Christian rock. When Stryper broke the mold for all Christian rock music, the genre started to see a flood of really talented artists who had, up until then, been holding back apparently. It was an industry dominated by the Gaithers, Amy Grant, Carmen, and Michael W. Smith...all whom were not rockers at the time. We couldn't stand any of their music back then. It was music for preppy-churc h boys.

Part 2:

We were already into the heavier side with bands like Barren Cross, White Cross, and of course Stryper. As our taste began to develop a little, several of the large labels began to send us demo records of new bands for us to give opinions. We had recommended several successful bands that eventually became staples of the Christian market

Part 3:
When Idle Cure rolled around, we were like whoa! who's this? They had a solid Survivor-ish type sound but could definitely rock. They filled a void for a more commercial sound coupled with more heartfelt ballads. It was hard to take a Barren Cross ballad seriously, even a Stryper ballad seemed off. Idle Cure had ballads you could put into your mix collection that would hold their own against any secular love song. Great band with a lot of talent.

I had forgot about this group. I smiled when I heard this again. It takes me back to my cruising days.
