  • Audio Interviews  ( 6 items )

    These are interviews that I have on tape or CD, including both Church and solo interviews.  I'd eventually like to get them all transcribed, so if you're quick with a keyboard and would like to help out, please let me know and I'll put your name on the job.


  • Interviews 2002 to the present  ( 108 items )
    The band continue to record and tour as the new millenium begins. They release Forget Yourself and Uninvited Like the Clouds, as well as two acoustic albums containing new songs and re-imaginings of past favourites.
  • Interviews 1996 to 2001  ( 44 items )
    The band release Magician Among the Spirits, and the collapse of the U.S record company almost causes the band to break up. They decide to continue, and Tim Powles assumes a strong organizational role in the band. Hologram of Baal and After Everthing Now This, as well as a album of covers called Box of Birds.
  • Interviews 1992 to 1995  ( 40 items )
    The band completes its Arista years with Priest=Aura and Sometime Anywhere, which saw the departure of guitarist Peter Koppes and the arrival of drummer Tim Powles.

    This period covers the band's period of worldwide fame with the albums Starfish album and Gold Afternoon Fix.

    This period will cover mostly the albums Seance, Remote Luxury and Heyday.
  • Interviews from 1980 to 1982  ( 13 items )
    The band formed in 1980 as a three-piece, consisting of Steve Kilbey on bass and vocals, Peter Koppes on guitar and Nick Ward on the drums. Marty Willson-Piper joined shortly afterwards as another guitarist.  Most early interviews were with Steve.
  • Fan reviews of albums, concerts and others  ( 37 items )

    There are plenty of reviews written by non journalists and this is where they live.  These days there's more than I can easily keep up with, so I'll also point you to the good folks at HotelWomb, who write lots of reviews of shows and albums.

  • Other Written  ( 38 items )
    Anything else written that isn't an interview or review.
  • Steve outside the band  ( 27 items )
    Steve's prolific work as a lyricist and singer extends into a solo career and many collaborations with other artists including Jack Frost (with the late Grant McLennan), Hex (with Donnette Thayer) and Isidore with Jeffrey Cain.
  • Press Releases  ( 9 items )
    Press releases are short articles created by the band's record company. They are intended to describe the band to the music press and encourage more coverage.
  • Marty outside the band  ( 15 items )
    Marty has a vibrant career outside The Church.  He has released several solo albums and collaborated with British band All About Eve on two albums.  He also works with longtime friend Dare Mason under the name Noctorum, releasing two albums so far.  These interviews are Marty talking about his non-Church projects.
  • Peter outside the band  ( 3 items )
    Peter has a reputation as one of the best guitarists in Australia and has released several albums outside the Church. These were solo projects and also some with his group The Well, in which former Church drummer Richard Ploog was also a member.
  • Tim outside the band  ( 1 items )
    Tim Powles is a successful record producer and also released a solo album called tygs in space.
  • Other related interviews  ( 8 items )
    There are a lot of interviews in the collection that are about other artists who have a connection to members of The Church. Many Church fans are also fans of such groups as the Crystal Set, Hex, Curious Yellow/Blue and Margot Smith, so these interviews will be collected here.
