In 2018, Australian underground pioneers, The Church, are enjoying a year of unique celebrations in honour of their seminal album, Starfish. With the LP hitting it’s thirtieth anniversary, the band behind classic singles Under The Milky Way and Reptile will be returning to Edinburgh this Autumn.

The Church spoke with The Fountain about some pertinent issues such as their most surreal experience and which song they wish they had written.

TF: How have you evolved as a artist evolved over the years?

I’m a better musician and singer than I used to be but I’m still ploughing the same field as ever.

TF: What are you up to at the moment artistically?

Touring the USA. Many collaborations coming to fruition.

TF: What’s on your rider?

Chocolate soy milk, hummus and pita bread. A bottle of gin

TF: Tell us your most embarrassing or surreal experience.

Getting locked out on a snowy balcony in the middle of Winter in Cleveland. Hello Cleveland!!

TF: What song do you wish you’d written?

America by Paul Simon

TF: What’s your worst lyric?

I’m not telling ya that!

The Church are performing in Edinburgh’s Liquid Rooms on 2nd November 2018.
