This is a story of impossible dreams and outrageous misfortune, of glory and tragedy. The story of The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads, a work of breathtaking ambition and tangible magic, and the story of the visions and divine inspirations that guided its makers, Lift To Experience. Three friends, three passionate musicians committed to doing that work divine justice, with songs that roared with existential angst and heavy portent, that were blessed with grace, poetry and black humour. On a good night – and so many of them were – they could make even a cynic believe in a good many things, their rapture and turbulence leaving audiences changed in the aftermath. And if cruel fortune pole-axed Lift To Experience before they could make good on all The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads promised, this sole artistic statement drew a fervent cult in the years that followed, its ambition and power undimmed and perhaps even made stronger by their absence.

The best band in the whole damned land (and Texas is the reason), they kissed the sublime, and splintered apart in the process. Their arc, however, isn’t yet complete, and with the album’s recent reissue on Mute, and a successful reunion show as part of Guy Garvey’s Meltdown Festival, Lift To Experience have risen again from the ashes.
