I hear you, Rob S.

RE: New church | from Rob sMay 23 2002 - 18:05

I take back my original comment. I really like the new Church album. the best since "Priest".

RE: New church | from Triple DApr 13 2002 - 08:36

What Church CD to begin with? Ah, being a Church fan spanning 3 decades, a must start is anywhere around Seance, Remote Luxury and Heyday. Starfish is a must also, but don't miss the earlier sounds as most are dark and acoustical as well. Ed, thanks for the update as I have almost given up on the church since the late 90's. I will definately check the newest out.

That is great info, Susan. I wondered what they were like. 20,000 records, huh I wonder if that is a record. (no pun intended)

RE: New church | from susan331Apr 09 2002 - 15:32

Marty Willson-Piper is without one iota of a doubt one of the most phenomenal guitarists I've ever seen (and heard). He plays with a skill and style and personality you don't see much anymore...although I didn't get a chance to catch them this time around I did when they toured behind 'Hologram of Baal,' and I remember being absolutely floored. Marty's a fantastically-nice guy, too, one of the coolest people I've ever interviewed. I remember running up a massive phone bill calling him (and Steve, separately) in Sweden and gabbing with him for nearly two hours. (Side note: Marty owns over 20,000 records!)

I went to the show last night. Kozelek was amazing on Katy Song.
Marty had a lot of energy but Peter Koppes didn't get up from his stool except to leave the stage. Watch out for the fog machine.

Fuck. Wish I lived on the west coast

RE: New church | from susan331Apr 04 2002 - 13:38

If any of you are in or around the SF Bay Area, the Church are playing Slim's on Sunday. Mark Kozelek's opening and as far as I know tickets are still available.

RE: New church | from adamApr 03 2002 - 20:30

Thanks Andy! Cheers....

RE: New church | from AndyApr 03 2002 - 20:23

Starfish is probably their most accessible and stripped down record. A great introduction to a under appreciated band. Starfish is also the easiest record to find purchasing wise eventhough it looks like EMI is re-releasing a ot of their earlier works.

There are also a few compilations out there givng the listener a nice sampling of songs that span their 22 year career.

RE: New church | from adamApr 03 2002 - 13:31

Can anyone reccomend a good first Church record for someone unfamiliar with their material? I'm intrigued.....

RE: New church | from Tavi NealApr 03 2002 - 13:20

After Everything has some of the best Church songs. "Reprieve" is one of the worst (granted %90 better than most stuff released).
It's an interesting record for the Church. The mood is very different from "Priest = Aura". It has hopeful songs. Those guitars are amazing. 8 out of 10, but I'm just a Church fan.

RE: New church | from edMar 28 2002 - 15:35

Hey scoobidoo. If you can get a listen to The church's B side compliation "A quick smoke at Spot's", that's good for the ears.

RE: New church | from scoobidooMar 28 2002 - 07:39

thanks very much for these recommandations. I have seen on allmusic that "Starfish" was their best effort. I think "after everything..." is a good compromise between Cure's "Disintegration" et Blue Nile's "hats". Two excellents eighties albums. the old stuff the i have listened sounds like an old british band called the Only Ones. In my opinion of course...

RE: New church | from AndyMar 27 2002 - 15:19

Their albums Heyday (1985) and Seance (1983) are two of my personal favorites. John Berry...what do you think of the Church?????

RE: New church | from watch yourselfMar 27 2002 - 14:32

RE: New church | from eraserheadMar 27 2002 - 08:24

Personally I would start with The Blurred Crusade(which came out about a thousand years ago)then work your way to present.

RE: New church | from crwilson21Mar 27 2002 - 08:09

Pick up Starfish (1988) and Priest=Aura (1992) first. Those two are the most consistent records. Or you could easily start with Under The Milky Way (greatest hits/songs), unless you dislike greatest hits compilations. I think 'After Everything...' is their least "pop"-inflected album in some time and, as a result, sounds rather fresh to me. I like Tim Powles's loose production on it also.

RE: New church | from scoobidooMar 27 2002 - 06:40

Hello guys, I've just discover this band with the new album "after everything..."(which is very good). Is there somebody that could advise me in their very loaded discography?

RE: New church | from Rob SFeb 14 2002 - 17:32

They always provide something that keeps you wanting more. I do like some songs on the new one and the 3 previous. Be great if they made another album like Starfish again. Thanx Adam for taking me up on that gag.

RE: New church | from edFeb 14 2002 - 16:02

I know what you mean RobS. I am just a sucker for the church. But I do think that this album is better than the last 3 or 4?

RE: New church | from adamFeb 14 2002 - 06:35

Rob S?

RE: New church | from Rob SFeb 14 2002 - 06:14

I don't think it's so great. They've been peddling the same record since "Priest = Aura". But.. who am i?

RE: New church | from edFeb 14 2002 - 05:41

The title is "After everything, now this"

RE: New church | from JKFeb 13 2002 - 21:15

Definitely a Church fan here, since almost the beginning. Thanks for the plug, ed, been looking for something new from the church for at least a few years now.

new church lp | from edFeb 10 2002 - 13:37

Any church fans out there? I highly advise picking up their new lp. Very nice stuff!!
