Site News

  • I dug into my Church tapes and have found three interviews : Steve with Matt Curley on 2RRR in late 1996 and early 1997, and Tim and Marty at 2RRR. Right-click on the file choose "Save As" to download each file to your computer. I think Matt Curley sent me this tape, so thank you Matt :)
  • For those of you wanting to hear songs from the far-flung corners of the Church cosmos, take a look at Disillusionist Radio on live365.com. Better known as Church fan Glenn Page, he also runs Violet Town.
  • If I might blow my own trumpet for a minute, I'm releasing some of my old four-track recordings. They were all done between five and ten years ago and I thought Church fans might find them interesting, since you're all kind and forgiving :) Strange...I didn't actually play my trumpet on any of these!
  • I found an interview with Peter from 1998 at the start of the Hologram of Baal tour in the USA.
  • I've created an RSS newsfeed for information about the band and this site. It's an experiment for now, but if you're interested point your news aggregator at http://church.tristesse.com/ChurchNews.xml - if you're not sure what that is, take a look at BlogLines.
