The Canned Fish Swimming Upstream project was originally started as an attempt to journalistically document what was actually happening in local churches that related to NCMI (New Covenant Ministries International) in the arena of worship.
Word was sent out to the relating churches to submit songs that were working. The material for the album was not simply to be songs that were trendy, good or catchy, but songs that were actually being used successfully in the worship process at the various relating churches. On the Swimming Upstream album, professional musicians who were Christians, and in relationship with one another were approached to be involved with the recording. Where possible, the goal was
to let the songwriters sing their own songs (hence the variety of lead vocalists on the project).
The project has evolved somewhat over the last year or so, and a band has begun to form consisting of musicians from basically two local NCMI churches in Johannesburg, South Africa. These musicians are prolific writers and another album was recorded in February 1997. The line-up has
changed a bit, but the journalistic intent has remained. The focus of the group is to be available to be an expression of praise and worship in any and all situations. They are able to teach and run workshops as well as play as a band in the leading of worship. The style of their music (and especially the new, as yet, unrecorded material) is not anywhere near the usual Christian worship sound and tends to be somewhat rocky and declarative. They do not draw from any
particular style at present but seem to be evolving one of their own.
The present line up is:
Anthony Rist - Vocals & Guitars
Robert Koch - Guitars & vocals
Wayne Freeman - Keyboards & vocals
Gary Sparks - Bass & vegetables
Chris Cooke - Percussion and Yaaaarggghhh
Lloyd Martin - Drums and vapours.
