The Fat Wreck Chords quartet hopped the “Employees Only” barricade to take a stab at William Cowper’s 1779 hymn, “There Is A Fountain Filled With Blood,” which the English poet is said to have written after a bout of depression. Though the bleak hymn has survived centuries, it’s actually something of a deep cut in Cowper’s catalog, as the misunderstood writer is responsible for the phrases “God moves in mysterious ways” and “variety is the very spice of life,” in addition to penning early abolitionist works that were routinely quoted by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. nearly 200 years after they were written.
