  • 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 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.

  • "Official" Reviews from the press  ( 193 items )
    Reviews found in magazines and other web sites that are written by music journalists.
  • 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.

    Anything else written that isn't an interview or review.

    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 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.
