Biography

The Church are an Australian alternative rock band formed in Sydney in 1980. Initially associated with new wave and the neo-psychedelic sound of the mid-1980s, their music later became more reminiscent of progressive rock, featuring long instrumental jams and complex guitar interplay. Glenn A. Baker has written that "From the release of the 'She Never Said' single in November 1980, this unique Sydney-originated entity has purveyed a distinctive, ethereal, psychedelic-tinged sound which has alternatively found favour and disfavor in Australia". The Los Angeles Times has described the band's music as "dense, shimmering, exquisite guitar pop".

The founding members are Steve Kilbey on the lead vocals and bass guitar, and Peter Koppes with Marty Willson-Piper on guitars. Drummer Nick Ward played only on their debut album; the band's drummer for eight years (1982-1990) was Richard Ploog, who left the band after their sixth album Gold Afternoon Fix. Jay Dee Daugherty (ex-Patti Smith Band) played drums for the band from 1990-1994, after which he was replaced by Tim Powles who has remained with the band through the present. Koppes briefly left the band in 1982 and 1992, but returned to the fold each time. Willson-Piper left the band in 2013 and was replaced by Ian Haug (formerly of Powderfinger). Three of the members recorded material as "The Refo:mation" in 1997.
