I've just watched a really interesting documentary about the Alpha Course, which basically is a course run by churches designed to make people about Christians. There's something gently sinister about it - it's very much based on emotional manipulation, and it teaches a very simplistic and rigid version of Christianity.

Anyway, through the programme I thought the incidental music seemed oddly familiar - then I noticed in the credits 'Composer - Jeffrey Lewis'. I'm not quite sure what piece of music it was though.

You can watch it online at http://www.channel4.com/programmes/revelations/4od#2926795

The film was made by Jon Ronson, who is a writer I really like - he wrote a great called 'The Men Who Stare at Goats' which is about bizarre American military experiments (including attempting to kill goats through the power of the mind).

This is another Jeffrey Lewis, not our guy. It's a common name.

I did, in fact, do music for that Alpha Course documentary! Instrumental music is not usually my thing, but I think it came out good. Jon Ronson who made the film has done a number of NPR radio documentaries that I've quite enjoyed. I met him at the recent Latitude Festival, where he gave a great and funny talk about some other films he's working on.
Other projects currently happening - I finished those comic strips for the Cribs, 6 pages of stuff total, probably making rounds on internet somewhere.
Just did a comic for Time Out Tel-Aviv that will supposedly be getting translated into Hebrew!
Did a poster for the US tour dates I'm doing in September with Akron/Family.
Working on a "low-budget film" about the Mayflower, which I'm hoping will be used by the History Channel's website... more info to come.
Hope you're all doing well!
Off the the UK in a couple days (in Maine at the moment).
Jeff

Glad to hear you're keeping busy Jeffrey. Do Christians kill mosquitoes? Are mosquitoes Christians? There is a right wing evangelist I saw on YouTube whose name is Jeffrey Lewis, so I thought that's who it was.
