So we spontaneously played in Tucson on 7th January 2018: “In their heyday, with chart topping hits like “Metropolis” and “Under the Milky Way,” Australian neo-psychedelic/dream poppers The Church became a staple during the MTV Era of the 1980s into the early ‘90s (when MTV actually played music videos back-to-back). Saturday, a small gathering of devotees were privileged to a rarified event. An intimate performance by Marty Willson-Piper (co-founding member of The Church) accompanied by his lovely bride Olivia Willson-Piper on violin. The newlyweds, on a cross country trek, made […]
Welcome to the new website, we have lots of announcements to make but the first thing we’d like to announce are US dates that will see us visiting the coasts and Texas with a merry band of minstrels that will include Hannah Moorhead on bass and vocals, Don Piper on guitar and vocals and Olivia Willson-Piper-to-be on violin, cellolin and vocals. Our special guest on all dates will be Edward Rogers, although Austin will be just Olivia and I. Ex Spacehog drummer Jonny Cragg will join us in Seattle and […]

The wind howls, the rain slanted, pounds into your face like sharp arrows. The rumbling sounds from the underground labyrinthian VIP Studio and In Deep Music Archive are the only hope for the dark Penzance October days.

The lovely Noelia Fernandez from Buenos Aires wrote two beautiful reviews of our acoustic gigs in Buenos Aires in February 2017. For all you Spanish speaking people out there – you are lucky. The articles are written in a beautifully personal, poetic, tell-tale-y way and even though Google Translator messes up the translation, have a read through the English version below.
