Stranded podcast #237

February 21, 2015

* Featuring a retrospective on The Church *

Here on Stranded we periodically re-visit the exquisite and arguably peerless musical back catalogue of legendary Australian band The Church.  And it’s fitting this week given the band, who have been recording masterworks of lyrically-evocative guitar-driven psychedelia since 1980, are embarking on a North American tour in support of their 25th album ‘Further/Deeper’, which includes a date in Vancouver on 21 Feb!  A contingent of hard-core fans have expressed dismay with the departure of founding guitarist Marty Willson-Piper but it’s clear from listening closely to the new record, that replacement Ian Hague (formerly of Powderfinger) has very ably stepped in to fill Marty’s formidable shoes.
