The Church: new albums, new tours, cranky old bastards. What's not to love?

Ok, we got to 500 posts in the first Church thread, so here's a new one.

I'll start this thread off with a pic. This was from 2003.



Now on to 499 more posts about all things Church and Churchlings!

I say that with great affection.

But come to think of it they haven't really been very cranky lately. Positively giddy is more like it. They'll have to fix that.

SK dancing...who would have ever thought that would happen? I think I remember a quote from him about never dancing in his life. I should see if I can dig that up....

I know, it made me laugh Cranky or giddy, we love 'em to bits. Though, giddy IS good ... maybe dancing demonstrations will become a regular feature at concerts!

Keep listening and discovering their music, you won't be disappointed!

Oh, and you're from Melbourne too .. yay! If you fancy checking The Church out live, they are playing at the Harvest Festival, down on the Mornington Peninsula on Jan 21. It'll be a wonderful day! Buy a ticket for yourself for Christmas!!

I got a mention (well an indirect one ) in today's Church newsletter from the official website, to check out a couple of photo's (and well, MWPs moustache!) I sent in to the Eclectica section the other day!

Woo hoo .. fame at last!


Happy Festive Season to you all Wish I was spending my Chrissie up in Sydney *sobs* but can't be too greedy I suppose!

I always liked a few Church tunes, then Indra hooked me up with a CD's worth of songs of theirs, which I liked a lot.

I've liked Metropolis since it was released, though, and it's a song I often recommend to people that want to hear something new, or, new to them. Everyone likes it, despite their tastes, at least in my experience.

I saw that!! Yay! I was tickled to see it. I'm kind of surprised there aren't more shots of MWP and his moustache, but perhaps it's just that so many fans are in denial about it.

I got a mention in SK's blog! He called me "very naughty."

I was just thinking of the Vegetarian Spacecake gig and how it's either just about to start or currently going on, and as sad as I am to miss it I think it's easier for me as I never had even an outside chance to go. I know I was dying this past summer when the band was playing in Detroit -- a mere 200 miles away -- and I was sitting at home. Of course I got to see them two days later, but I wanted to see that show too dammit!


Hmm. Reading intedomine's and no spoken word's comments about Metropolis makes me think I should make sure to include it on any Church samplers I make for people from now on.

I love these guys.
They just keep churning them out don't they?
The last few albums have had some real gems on them.
"Uninvited Like The Clouds" is on my Top 10 of 2006!!!
The way these guys are going I bet they have a new album for 2007.

Loved that!

It's very strange, because I just woke up before feeling very disorientated .. I must of been dreaming that I was at the gig last night I stumbled down the stairs thinking ... huh?! where am I .. what day is it?!!?

I know exactly how you feel now about missing out on a show .. I'm really feeling it at the moment too! It just doesn't seem right to miss out does it?!? The little bits and pieces that I've read so far about the Basement show sound wonderful ... 'Tantalized' and 'Block' ... sigh! Oooh, I remember now that SK mentioned (at the MWPvsSK show) that 'Tantalized' was going to make an appearance at the next CD launch show (early in the new year .. at Manchester Lane, like the last one back in March) OR on the new album. Can't remember which one now maybe both, haha!

You know, I'm a big 'Metropolis' fan myself ... it's such a beautifully constructed song musically I think You know, the guitar riff at the end still gives me goose-bumps .. it's just gorgeous. I've been thinking about making a mixed Churchy CD (or 3!) for a friend of mine over in Perth that I'll probably be catching up with when I go and visit next month. Once I actually figure out how to make one on the computer ... the hardest part would be what songs to include (everything?!?) !!

that's fantastic! I'm particularly fond of 'Never Before' .. especially after hearing it live back in October just incredible. And not to forget 'Block' .. I'm still addicted to this song!

I agree, the band have released an amazing amount of work, especially in the last few years, which pleases me no end Even after 20-odd years of fanship, I'm still completely in awe of these guys!

Aaaand, yes! There IS a new album coming soon in 2007!!

TE - Hey could i be the "friend" in Perth?????? Just bring the cds over and I'll make my own cds

Hey i was on a winery tour in the swan valley yesterday TE i have to take you up there when you come over in January its a great day ..believe me Anyhow we visited Sandleford Winery - what a beautiful venue that is going to be for the Church to play at. Hmmm if they get stuck into the wine though - doubt there is going to be much performing going on
