Shootin’ The Tube:: Church Is In Session

One of my favorite bands The Church, who have been flying under the radar for much of their almost thirty year existence (save for maybe a two year span between 1988-1990) – have created such a strong catalog of work. I recently went back and began listening to a couple of the earlier albums, in particular the first two. “Of Skins And Heart”(1981) and “The Blurred Crusade” (1982) are more straight forward melodic pieces and showcase the bands jangly beginnings. Listening to those records got me to go back through some of the solo works: Marty Willson-Piper’s “Art Attack” and “Rhyme,” Peter Koppes Manchild & Myth” and “From The Well,” Steve Kilbey’s “Unearthed” and the first Jack Frost LP a from Kilbey’s collaboration with The Go-Betweens’ Grant McClennan. The Church continues to make amazing music. I gathered a bunch of clips some of which I’d never seen before.
