So what are the fans like regarding the band? I assume, seeing as you've mentioned your preference for vocal/lyrical stylings, that there's been many discussions of that nature with other Church fans?

Angela
Fans of the band are a lot like U2 fans -- we discuss everything. bitch about everything too. Some fans haven't liked SK's more recent lyrics -- they think they aren't mysterious enough. Several have suggested that he is too happy or content, and they preferred when he was misreable. I rather like the happy, content SK. And I'm sure he still has his cranky old bastard days. Ah! and the album covers! Those are a subject of heated debate.

But Church fans very much talk about the same things regarding the band as U2 fans do -- we don't do a Goal is the Soul type thing (because it isn't for them...religion gets discussed, and there is lots of religious imagery -- both eastern and western -- in The Church's work, but there isn't anything equivelant to the goal is the soul), and there is no Pleba-type place. If ya wanna drool over any of the guys, ya gotta do it on your own time 'cause it grosses everyone out. But three of us fans (me, a mexican chemist (a guy), and the girl who wrote the looooong SK interview I gave the link to several posts ago) had a long -- like a couple hours long -- discussion of porn movies with SK online one night. That was a whole lot of fun.

Oh, and back to actually promoting the music (what a novel idea)... you can stream the entire Isidore album at the Isidore site

Not as guitar driven as The Church, but a good way to hear SK's vocals if you haven't before and are interested.

And SK's impression of a "gonzo minister" on CA Redemption Value is great!

Hehe, fans of musicians can be quite the strange bunch sometimes, huh? . That's why I feel a bit bad for musicians sometimes-it's rare they'll ever please all their fans. Hence why they should just do what they feel comfortable doing.

LMAO! How on earth did that come about?

God, I'd feel weird talking about porn movies with my favorite musicians (although, at the same time, it could be interesting...).

Also...

. Interesting tirade against marriage there. But funny turn of events at the end .

Also, yeah, in regards to the actual music, I may check out that Isidore album sometime .

He had just done a series of nude paintings and one obviously didn't have pubic hair...so I asked if she was shaven or waxed. He said he didn't care...as long as it was gone. And off the conversation went....

It was pretty surreal.

Yeah...and he even lived in Dover, Delaware for over a year for to be with her (and the doodles), so he must have it really bad for her.

well...it is what you think it is. One of the friends is a journalist and SK told him that would make a good story. The guy said it was gross and slimey...not at all erotic. But his tale of going there was hilarious.


Anyway...on the agenda tomorrow (or later today) for "indra's ode to The Church" is a listing of great songs, solo projects and collaborations, and perhaps a few pictures (maybe even some in eyeliner, paisley shirts, and stovepipe pants ).

Here are a few fairly early shots:



Photos on the back of Seance. Gotta love that eyeliner! Clockwise from top left: Ploog, Kilbey, Koppes, Willson-Piper



left to right: MWP, RP, PK, SK



left to right: SK, MWP, PR, PK



left - PK right - MWP

All Starfish (1988) and earlier. ...Actually, the last one, PK and MWP....those could be from Gold Afternoon Fix in 1990.

Those are coming...and the one in my sig line is from last year (it is pretty small though).

The sad thing is...people who haven't seen them since Starfish or GAF days look at them now and say "oh my, they look so old!" just as I'm thinking, "ah, they look pretty good." Guess it just depends on your perception....
