Judas Iscariot, a backing vocalist with the thirties touring band Jesus and the Disciples, has called on other members of the group to join him in a reunion tour.
In an interview with Flavius Josephus published today in the New Missiological Express (NME), Iscariot starts by responding to negative reviews of his recent tour dates with Judas Iscariot's Field of Blood, "It's crap to say our sound is out of date. We was the biggest thing ever to hit the LA* scene, and we've still got things to say unto the third and fourth generation of them that feted us."
Challenged as to the possibility of resurrecting the band's trademark sound without their messianic front-man Jesus Christ, Iscariot was quick to stress that the Disciples were more than just a backing group: "Yeah, Jesus took top billing, but the Disciples was always more than a one-man show. We all had ideas of our own, and in the end it was our missiological differences what caused the band to split. With Peter and me sharing lead vocal duties it don't sound no different, even if we've had to change some of the keys for Peter's benefit."
Iscariot only came close to losing his cool once, when asked by Josephus if he accepted any responsibility for the end of Jesus' performing career. "No way," he responded vehemently. "The establishment was out to crucify him from the outset. All I did was..." At this point, the interviewer's cellphone rang, and Judas was left hanging.
