  • man woman life death infinity * the church
    yeah ha ha such an exciting time to be a fan of ol’ SK new church album is done and (fairy) dusted its not like much that came before with its new old sound not quite one thing or another pretty different pretty fresh     another century i gotta get directions off you the mirror flare could be anywhere yeah you probably already heard this song what a great leap forward this one is definitely one of the best things the church have ever done the word brilliant springs to mind but modesty has me refrain   submarine nature loves a winner we gonna end up some creatures dinner devil loves a sinner you were on the menu youre just a beginner weird progressive kraut rock song a whole new sound here too kinda charming jammy quality   for king knife a wicked little mannikin a squirrel and a bird i heard the show will start without you a childs song a fairy tale sung with wide eyed wonder by a naughty boy naive rock and english kids books from the 1950s   undersea fly makes a honey man bee sorta i can see the water you wanna take the rest of the stuff? everybody says that we can never get enough i say to band lets imagine a brand hyped up new band is in town and youre there and they come out n play their first number so then this song is the song we were hoping to hear   before the deluge well i never really had a clue my hands so full of sandals my feet so tender bare stumble in a cyclone of drones theyre watching everything we cannot see the most typical church track travelling music dark and nasty   i dont know […]
  • oh honey
    you all know everything here is true its just the way i tell it ive been a sponge for drugs and loud rocknroll and my once brilliant mind is now dark and haunted why you know when i was twenty years ago i flew to Los Angeles and played on david neils sessions for  what would become the wilderness years but dave had a huge stack of songs and oh honey was one of them since covered by that alt country rock band whose very name keeps escaping me the truth is its daves most fantastic song and an instant classic the saddest most burnt out song you ever heard in your life i know because i played on the version that dave recorded a demo in a place on sepulveda down in santa monica or something Oh honey that sunny day just faded to a dead white gray and people say strange things to me about you all the time but it just made him too damn sad and he shelved it imagine a cross between neil young and the stones at their saddest and most regretful oh honey was a knockout this is a terrible thing to admit here but after david died i started telling people i had written this song and in my own defence i must say that the descending bass line was actually my idea dave told me steve that damn bass line IS this song now! so it isnt entirely untrue that i kinda sorta did in a way write this song plus i suggested some words which david pretended to ignore but he later secretly adapted them n then denied to all they were mine so he wasnt the angel you may think i was telling all this to the captain as […]
  • fate heeler
    i’m my dream i live this life and in my life i live this dream and now my mind is truly blown away down the street asleep at the deal i got ripped off again and again but who is the real loser? the more i shot the more i missed the more i missed the less i could bear to shoot eventually the arrows i loosed well all were lost on a train to the northern beaches to meet with my friend or on a plane sitting in business class i was trying to chat up the female pilot she came out and and talked to me too except we hit some turbulence over the indian sea an unexpected jolt and i wake up in sydney and its freezing the flowers in the vases wilting inexorably the dust and cold clutter drift away then i dream im on the phone to someone going round and round and round im speaking some other language i cant understand what im saying but this is how i am anyway jotting down phrases to regurgitate in songs and poems i strumming my guitar in Cosa Met in Thailand in a cluster of cottages just back from the sea someone yells out to shut the fuck up..! but its too hot to sleep and my friend wants to hear her song we walk down the beach but the water is so warm there are no sharks she says as i gingerly enter the black oceans maw after our swim i pick up my guitar and in some strange time signature the guitar is detuned now and im too out of it to get it back in tune i like it just as much like that anyway says my friend more gone than me i […]
Goldfish on DVD, remastered albums coming soon! Print E-mail
Friday, 15 April 2005
After reading about this on HotelWomb I asked Vicky at EMI if it was true that they were remastering and re-releasing all The Church's albums, and if the "Goldfish...."  tape, a collection of their music videos, was coming out on DVD. Ripple and Two Places at once have been added to the collection. It'll be PAL only (due to licensing issues), so US-based fans might be out of luck.  Look for a release soon, hopefully around June 2005.
I can confirm that I'm definitely working on the rest of their catalogue, all the audio has been remastered and is being repackaged.
I'm also working on the VHS to DVD release for Goldfish, so it's pretty exciting.
The release date has yet to be scheduled but I'm hoping for sometime in June fingers crossed!
I can put you out of your misery, yes, Unsubstantiated is being included as a bonus track (you can thank Pete for this, his brilliant idea!).
A press release hasn't officially been sent out yet but of course, if you would like to include this on Shadow Cabinet (love the site!), by all means. 
Once I have the official press release, I'll make sure I send it to you.
Please note though, these albums and DVD (PAL only) are for Australia and New Zealand only so they won't be available locally anywhere else unless someone exports them from here or you buy online.

fipster also received an email with more information

"The DVD will be region free but only in PAL (so if you're from an NTSC territory and your TV isn't capable of 'reading' PAL, you might be stuck with watching green footage (which would suck no doubt...). We only have rights to release the DVD in Australia and New Zealand so I cannot manufacture an NTSC version.

"With regards to the film clips, the guys are keen for me just to repackage the original Goldfish VHS release and add two film clips (Ripple and Two Places At Once) with the addition of making this into 5.1 surround sound, so their wish is my command. I would dearly love to do a video anthology of sorts with live footage etc but this will come at a later date (and I have to still convince the guys this is what we have all been crying for!). I think I have been trying for over 2 years or so. I'm sure one day they will either tell me to get lost or finally say yes! I still persevere."

[I told her that many people had problems playing the QuickTime videos on their earlier reissues...]

"I take your point about the Quicktime versions, and I wholeheartedly apologise for the inconvenience caused. There was a phase that enhanced CDs were the way to go and we fell into the trap. If you don't have the software (let alone the patience to set it up if you don't), it's pretty much very annoying!"

[Then I asked about specific rare songs, whether they would be included...]

"The audio:
Nightmare and Fog - Yes
Room Full Of Diamonds - No
White Star Line/Gypsy Stomp - No

"You're freakin' out, I can tell... But hey, I have to leave some goodies up my sleeves!"
