The funk disco band Machine was formed in 1967 by Jay Stovall with the intention of emulating politically charged
R&B songs in the style of disco in order to address social and political issues. After releasing their self-titled debut
album in 1979, Machine had their first hit with "There But for the Grace of God Go I," which also became one of their most
famous songs. The song tells the story of a Latino couple who moves out of the Bronx for the safety of their daughter. However,
with their move comes trouble, as their daughter becomes cut off from her heritage and becomes self-destructive, leading her
to transform into the very person that her parents set out to protect her from. "There But for the Grace of God Go I" peaked
at the number 77 position on the Billboard Hot 100 and spent a solid ten weeks on the chart.
The band released their
second album "Moving On" in 1980, but they disbanded shortly after. In 2009, some of the band members reunited for a tour,
and now they are hitting the road again for yet another tour, much to the delight of longtime fans.
The disco band Machine were in the right place at the right time with their debut album in 1979.
When disco fever was at an all-time high, Machine were breakout stars with their hit song, "There But for the Grace of God
Go I." The song made it to the number 8 position on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play, number 91 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop
Songs chart, and number 77 on the Billboard Hot 100. Machine also scored a hit with "Is It Love/I Finally Found," which rose
to the number 27 position on the Hot Dance Club Play chart. Now Machine is back in all of their disco glory, and you'll have
the opportunity to see them perform live in concert!
What is the origin of the statement:
"There But for the Grace of God Go I"?
The origin of the statement "There But for the Grace of God Go I" can actually
be traced back to the mid sixteenth century. The statement was allegedly made by John Bradford, as a group of prisoners were
being led to their execution.
