Biography

CPM GOT ITS START IN SOUTH FLORIDA AS A BAND CALLED "ENTERLOST," FEATURING CEARLEY AND HARDEN FROM THE BEGINING. SOON AFTER, THE 2 BROUGHT THE BAND UP TO BOSTON AND CHANGED THE NAME TO "CHRISTIAN PORN MACHINE."

INFLUENCES INCLUDE U2, SMASHING PUMPKINS, WEEZER, THE PIXIES.

THE NAME WAS NOT ONLY A REACTION TO THE NEW ENGALND CHURCH SEX SCANDAL BUT A BROAD SCANDAL OF FAITH. CPM BEGAN MORE AS AN IDEA THAN A ROCK BAND. THE IDEA BASICALLY HARNESSING THE PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION BECOMING LESS AND LESS ABOUT A LIFESTYLE AND MORE ABOUT A WELL ADORNED PROPAGANDA SUCCESS STORY.
PORN, IN THE SAME WAY AS PROPAGANDA, SEEKS AN IMMEDIATE REACTION. THERE IS NO NURTURE, ONLY NATURE. CHRISTIAN PORN: CHRISTIAN PROPAGANDA.
SO ONCE THE WELL OILED MACHINE GRABS YOUR ATTENTION YOU HAVE TO FALL IN WITH THE REST OF THE FLOCK.
SALVATION lies WITHIN.
ON THE COAT TAILS OF A POST-MODERN AGE CPM SEEKS TO USE MUSIC TO SPOTLIGHT THE GROWING GLOBAL FRUSTRATIONS WITH A SPIRIT-FREE SPIRITUALITY...AND IN THE SILENCE OF THE ARGUMENTS...WE WILL BRING THE ROCK.
