Here we go! the church and Moshcam are very pleased to announce the full live concert of Untitled #23 at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney last year from the Future Past Perfect 3 album tour. The other two album’s sets of Starfish and Priest=Aura will follow soon.

Today, we premiere the first of our three sets – the church performing their hypnotic masterpiece ‘Untitled #23?. The latest step in the band’s expansive journey, the record scored five stars in Rolling Stone Australia, who called it “a stunningly ambitious album of shimmering rock”. So sit back, grab a drink (or two) and soak up the majesty that is the church.

Then stay tuned as we premiere the ‘Priest=Aura’ set on Tuesday 27th November and ‘Starfish’ on Thursday 29th November.”

Concert Review : Rave Magazine – Brisbane Powerhouse Future Past Perfect Show Dec 23 2011

The Church
TUESDAY, 10 JANUARY 2012
Brisbane Powerhouse – Fri Dec 23

A rainy pre-Christmas Eve night can be made special in a variety of ways – in this lifer’s case, seeing The Church, who are bringing the three-album Future Past Perfect extravaganza to the Powerhouse.

Aided by a considerably-younger “utility man” Craig Wilson from Sydney dream/jangle-popsters Astreetlightsong, the Blurred Crusaders encounter an uneven mix during the opening Cobalt Blue, but have all instruments up to level by the time they launch into the menacing Deadman’s Hand. Over two-and-a-half years since its release, the band’s most recent LP Untitled #23 remains an impressive body of work, yet its second half – particularly Sunken Sun with its echoey, post-rock-hued outro and Lunar’s short-and-sweet, ‘space-rock’ trip – is a revelation live. Ever the master of the six-string, Peter Koppes takes us places with his David Gilmour-esque guitar solo during the melancholic On Angel Street, while Steve Kilbey signals the intermission following the gorgeous Operetta.

The album all Church fans tend to agree on, Priest=Aura isn’t so much a faithful reproduction as a mind-blowing live experience. Two decades post-conception, the album still sounds like nothing else recorded at the time or currently, Ripple and Feel brimming with immaculate guitar-pop power and the lovelorn Mistress allowing dynamo drummer Tim Powles to turn the intensity down a notch. However, the second set’s moment of truth arrives when Kilbey puts down his six-string bass and roams the stage during the cathartic Disillusionist, followed by nine brain-melting minutes of Chaos and the brief, haunting Film – the direct precursor of the ‘00s instrumental rock boom.

Following a brief pause, the four-piece roll out Starfish – the record that brought Kilbey and co. worldwide recognition – for the night’s final set. As expected, Destination zooms, Antenna (with Wilson on mandolin) chimes and Reptile bites; Marty Willson-Piper and Koppes take confident solo turns on Spark and A New Season and the former wrings every drop of emotion from Hotel Womb’s outro. Christmas can’t possibly get any better than this.
