Church and Solo Albums
This page is a kind of index to the material held elsewhere in
Shadow Cabinet. By giving each album it's own page, not only can
I tell you more about each album but it can springboard into the
appropriate sections of the other pages, such as lyrics,
pictures, or whatever.
My thanks to Mike Fulmer, maintainer of the Church discography. The links for more recent albums go to his site's albums pages which are, frankly, much better than these at the moment :)

Steve worked as producer. This was kept secret for a long
time due to contractual spaghetti.

first release from Russell's new band. He kindly sent me a copy
and its been very popular around our office.
Warp Factor 9
There are a lot
of Church rarities out there;
various singles and b-sides that are hard to find. You might want
to hear samples of them before paying out serious money to own
This might be fairly subjective but I've compiled a list of production errors to be found on
