Mention The Church to your typical music lover and inevitably the spectre of their one and only hit, "Under the Milky Way," haunts the conversation like an old debt. If you had a radio in the late eighties, you probably know that tune, with its crystalline 12-string guitars and its bagpipe solo. You might not know, however, that the Australian neo-psychedelic standard bearers behind that albatross have released more than a dozen lush, elegant albums or that their refined and intricate music - distinguished by bassist Steve Kilbey's mordant tenor, guitarists Marty Willson-Piper's and Peter Koppes' understated playing, and the melodic pulse of drummer/producer Tim Powles- continues to inspire world-wide devotion.
