Written and recorded on the spot at the Spacejunk Studios, Sydney, "forget yourself", The Church?s 17th album, has a different energy to previous Church releases, which, explains Tim Powles, "may be the result of being set up ?casually? in a very relaxed studio. Most of this album is a ?live? four piece with minimal overdubs. The jams that didn?t fall naturally into ?song? style order,we cut into chunks and reassembled, keeping all the bangs, crashes and accidents intact." From the clunk and groove of "sealine" to the dark exotica of "nothing seeker", "forget yourself" is the stunning testimony of a band in the full flush of invention, and a dynamic expression of contemporary rock.

The Church formed in Sydney, Australia in 1980 and are best known for their 1988 hit single "under the milky way", which featured a bagpipe solo alongside crystalline 12-string guitars. Their illustrious career has taken them from its 1960s-inspired psychpop beginnings to an international standing based on a series of exceptional album releases - distinguished by bassist Steve Kilbey?s mordant tenor, guitarists Marty Willson-Piper?s and Peter Koppes? understated playing, and the melodic pulse of drummer/ producer Tim Powles.
