The Church's entry on Wikipedia is an excellent explanation of the history of the band.


The Church an Australian band formed in 1980 as a three piece and are still recording today. Their music can be characterized as intelligent rock and more than that I won't say for fear of contradicting someone else! The band consists of lyricist Steve Kilbey (bass, vocal),Ian Haug (guitars), Peter Koppes (guitars, vocals) and Tim Powles (drums/vocals). 

Long-time drummer Richard Ploog left the band after the 1990 album Gold Afternoon Fix. Two other drummers have also been in The Church : Nick Ward was the original drummer and was replaced after recording the first album. Jay Dee Daugherty was in The Church for one album (1992's Priest=Aura)and also toured with the band. Peter Koppes left the band in 1992 but has since returned.

Long-time guitarist Marty Willson-Piper left the band in 2013.

The band has released 25 studio albums and are still active today (as of 2017).
