The chords in The Church's Appalatia roll and surge, but singer Steve Kilbey doesn't want to hear about it.

His vanity gets in the way.



"It's not (my favourite) because that's not one I sing," he said. [Note: It's sung by Peter Koppes]

"I wouldn't have somebody else's track as the favourite one of my own is."

Pushed, the Sydneysider pins his preference on the band's album Forget Yourself to Sealine, the first track.

"It's not a fast song, it lurches along and there's something about the way Tim (Powles) plays the drums that suggests The Beatles," he said.

The Church has lurched along in the 22 years since The Unguarded Moment lodged them on Countdown and in the heads of music fans.

That was 15 albums ago and it's appropriate that the band's latest thunders along.

"Everything is about the sea and swimming and physical activity and everything Australia is," Kilbey said.

"That's how I wrote it, after I'd been swimming every day."

The band's Melbourne gig, however, will be all about drinking vodka and smoking spliffs.

And songs from Forget Yourself.

"I've always wanted to say this: We ain't no nostalgia band, lady," he said.

The Church play the Corner Hotel, Richmond, tomorrow. Tickets: 9427 9198.
