The Legion of Decency was a Catholic organization founded in the 1930’s, and active in the 50’s and 60’s. They had the misguided intention of determining what entertainment, specifically movies, was “decent” for Catholics to partake in. My Mother, who attended Catholic school as a kid in San Francisco, was telling me about it one evening. It was apparently a sin to attend any of these movies. Of course, I know what movies I would have made a beeline to go see.
A band name was born.
This Legion of Decency is a band out of California’s Inland Empire. Born in the Eastern shadow of Los Angeles and that “magical” land of Hollywood, The Legion of Decency has grown with shady moss and all. I hope you enjoy the music and join in our pursuits.
I’d like to think it is a bit of a sin to listen to us.
