Steve Kilbey Plays The Church Singles
Aided only by his 12 string Guild jumbo, Steve Kilbey plays and reimagines the first twenty years of The Church.
Finally looking back, not in anger, but in fondness, upon those early years of The Church as they stumbled around Australia, Europe and the USA, a hummin’ and a strummin’. Stripped down to a single acoustic guitar, and the bare bones of the songs revealed, the words and music take on new unexpected meanings. Kilbey’s ongoing patter and banter fleshes out the stories behind the songs we all know and love. Filled with avaricious managers, dissolute musicians and the roar of the greasepaint and the smell of the crowd, his tales are at once, hilarious and yet regretful. Including ‘Unguarded Moment’, ‘Almost With You’, ‘Under The Milky Way’ etc. etc.
This show takes in all the big hits as well as quite a few narrow misses. The divine comedy and the divine tragedy wrapped up in an evening.
