Kilbey talked about what's what during an expensive phone conversation from his Stockholm home.

What's up with the acoustic tour?

K:  You know, there's just two of'll just be hired guns.

What's up in Sweden; does Stockholm rock?

K:  I've got kids here, that's why I've been drifting between here and
Australia.  There's an underground scene here, but not a lot of places to
play.  Obviously, when someone like Joe Cocker comes to town, there's
always somewhere for him to play.

Why are there so many good bands in Australia?

K:  I don't know--everywhere has at least a couple of good bands, I
suppose.  Originally, we got an English label deal, went to tour England,
then toured the continent.  It really put us in debt.  We had to go back
to Australia and work for two years just to pay it back.

Has the Church changed since 1981?

K:  Not really, we've just gotten better at it--better at writing and
better at....I was 16, I knew I wanted to play.  My first band was one of
those knockabout bands.

Do you remember the first Church gig?

K:  Sure.  It was in Sydney, Australia, and I remember we played this
song "Is This Where You Live" that ended up being on our first album, and
I thought, 'This is it.  We're it now.'  I could just feel it.  We were
going places where previous bands I'd been in had never been.

What was a strange Church gig?

K:  One time we played at a huge ice hockey rink in New Hampshire and
there were only six people there.

What do you think the Church music sounds like?

K:  God, I don't know.  It's difficult to describe music for others. 
Right now, all I know is we're going to California, after that, I don't
know.  Then we'll do another album, but we haven't started it yet.
