Marvel Comics superhero Daredevil is a blind crime fighter whose alter ego is Matt Murdock, attorney at law. So when we received an order from a Matthew Murdoch in South Africa recently, we asked him if he was familiar with his near-namesake. Here's what he said:
Yes, all is well in South Africa. I am familiar with Daredevil, it was even one of my nicknames at school because of the name!Well, we guess we shouldn't be too surprised that Daredevil is known in South Africa, considering the fact that they even know about ApologetiX there!
Let me just say how I really dig what ApologetiX does. I won one of your CD's in a magazine competition way back, Biblical Graffiti it was, not having heard of the band before, and, wow, did I grow to love the music, which is why I've bought a couple of CD's since!
You guys parody some of my favourite songs and the lyrics are always cleverly and brilliantly done. It's great how the band takes the lyrics and puts new ones in that sound very similar to the original lyrics, yet never compromising the message you guys are trying to convey in the song.
There is a light-heartedness to the way guys approach the songs and making music, but the Gospel message is always true and powerful. Listening to my favourite songs with clever, witty and uncompromising lyrics has brightened up many a day of mine.
You guys have a gift. God bless you all indeed!
