Awesome ... the L.A. Forum shows on that '77 tour are legendary. That was also the "Royal Orleans" tour, and JPJ's embarrasing fiasco in New Orleans, right? It was also the tour during which Karac died

Wow, love this. Thanks for posting. I will be looking more into them soon. Any particular album you recommend? They remind me a bit of the Stone Roses.

The Church is a band capable of great beauty, above that of your average jangle pop band of the age (R.E.M., Let's Active, etc.) They were often described as sounding like The Byrds if they were fronted by David Bowie. Inconsistant material and Steve Kilbey's penchant for weirdness prevented them from being much bigger than they were (are). So, other than the huge hit "Under The Milky Way", they are pretty much unknown in the USA.

My recommendations are to start with the best of Under the Milky Way: The Best of the Church...it has pretty much all the highlights and the stylistic detours that worked on it. If you need more, I'd stick to the earlier material like Of Skins And Heart & The Blurred Crusade..both of which are jangle pop masterpieces IMHO.

Here's a little sampling, cheesy 80's videos notwithstanding, the songs are just goregous
Almost With You


Tear It All Away


Hope this helps! Actually, if Kilbey and Robyn Hitchcock ever got together, the result would be a very tuneful head scrambler to say the least.

Zimmer's Hole- When You Were Shouting at the Devil...We Were in League with Satan. (2008)


Fantastic Album!!! Here's a review i did on it.





Origin
Formed in 1991 from Vancouver, Canada.




Members
Chris Valagao- Vocals
Jed Simon- Guitar
Chris Stanely- Guitar
Byron Stroud- Bass
Gene Hoglan- Drums


Track Listing
1. When You Were Shouting at the Devill... We Were in League with Satan
2. We Rule the ****ing Land
3. Flight of the Knight Bat
4. 1312
5. Devil's Mouth
6. Vowel Song
7. Fista Corps
8. Anonymous Esophagus
9. Alright
10. Hair Doesn't Grow on Steel
11. What's My Name...Evil!

Style
Thrash/Death/Industrial hybrid


Highlight
I know this may come as a entire shock to some people but Zimmer's Hole was one band i hadnt given much thought too. Although the obvious SYL and Devin Townsend connections i just didnt care too much to check out this particular project by Jed and company. And although i havent heard any past releases i soon will be as this record is excellent. Zimmer's Hole is a metal band that not totally unlike SYL doesnt take itself that seriously and indeed utilizes parody in its song writing. Devin wasnt toally absent on this release though as he did produce the vocal production and it clearly shows as vocalist Chris Valagao sounds at times like a cross between Rob Halford and the Alien madman himself on this record. But with all that said this ****ing album OWNS. Parody or not the musicianship is outstanding and on point. Just a total unrelentless mechanism of crushing riffs and double hammered drum beats.

And just in case your curious, yes, overall the music is better on this record than the last SYL album just not as diverse. And you know coming from me that says a lot as im one of the biggest Dev fans out there. The great thing about this album is not only is it blistering heavy but hilarious on top of it all. The narration at the beginning of the Dethklok cover "The Vowel Song" is hilarious. Songs like "Hair Doesnt Grow on Steel" is paying comedic homage to the power metal genre. And obviously with songs like the title track "When You Were Shouting at the Devil...We Were in League with Satan" are laughing shots at the glam bands of the 80's. The band is just having a joy and great time with this record and it clearly shows. This album is something that everyone can listen too over and over again. Its that good.

Problems
The only problem i have with it and its really not a problem is that Chris sounds far too like Devin at times on here. And like the Warrell Dane solo project i think that Devin should of just sang on this record because it seems like something he would do anyway. Never the less, its not that much of a problem for me as i enjoy this record a lot. Moving on...

Final Thought
If your someone who loves the whole SYL sound and are bummed by the fact that they have disbanded this is a remedy to cure that hangover plus, you get to laugh in the process. This album doesnt take itself too seriously but it will kick your ass never the less.

This album is very underrated, having been Thompson's first release post-Pixies. Where Pixies were expected, Thompson gave quirky, well-written, lyrically outstanding songs that fit somewhere in between early ELO and Captain Beefheart. What was missed in the clamoring over the disappointment of yet again losing out on the next Doolittle or Surfer Rosa was a tight, creative, unified work that showed Thompson in a more sophisticated and mature exhibition of the same wit, hooks, and subject matter that made the Pixies transcend their peers, and even the subsequent generations of songwriters that the Pixies heavily influenced.

Soooooo .... I finish two weeks of moving this past Sunday afternoon March 16. And I took a stroll 'round my new neighborhood to choose which establishment I might get plastered at 24 hours later ... (my name is "Casey O'Brien" after all), When ... What, to My Wondering Eyes Should Appear?

Two blocks away from my new home ... a the Moore Theater downtown ....




Un-freaking-believable. My favorite artist (among my top 3 anyway), and the one I spent numerous posts pimping in this thread barely a week ago, was appearing two nights in a row that very week. Further, she just five weeks earlier released Watershed, her first all-original album a nine years. Had I not moved dwntown, I wouldn't have known any of this ....

Both shows were A-FREAKING-STONISHING! I sat 12th row night 1, 6th row balcony night two ... and I dropped 60 bucks in the lobby for two CDs and her "Live by Request" DVD. I don't care what you low-brows in this thread think ... she is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Her voice AND her music.


(Bonus points for anybody who can identify the shirt I had on when I snapped the pics)

Didnt care for the album as a whole but "Los Angeles" is a beast of a song. Got the album just for that song and its well worth it.
