dee vee dee

well it came back from the factory today

ready to ship tomorrow

my little dvd

i dunno if you ever see such a thing again

until jack frost ( in the not too distant future)

but here is LDCBAF

spinal tap you betcha

we are every cliche and then some

but when we rock we rock ferociously

has anyone in a band actually ever made a POV doco before?

just looking at 1990 is a trip

its jerky in places

but theres much more unjerky than jerky

theres some distortion on live sound

yet it still bloody well rocks

it gives you a real feeling of how it all felt

its intimate its stupid its poignant its dopey

its immature …!

all the contradictions in the church are all here

its a pity we didnt bring some our liveliness into the interviews

sometimes we are downright rude and silly

sometimes we pontificate like the world depends on it

we jump on n on on non that fucking bus

we check in in in in in in nin

we swear and laugh get tipsy n smoke dope

we play hard hitting shows

we get on fast planes to here n there

we turn up every night n do our gig

you’ll see some of the snakes n a few of the ladders

its a long way even to the middle let a lone the fucking top

sometimes the olde glamour wears a bit thin

now you decide….

and please

write your honest reviews in the comments below

(thats if  you bought a digital download)

thank you for supporting this project

i believe its unique and you might find that its a bit of fun too

    Steve, I was one of your more devoted fans back in this era and came to see shows in SF, NYC and smaller shows in between.

    I always appreciated that you sing in the same register as I, amongst the millions of bands with tenor vocalists. That and the complexity in the interplay between Peter and Marty’s guitars.

    Thank you for the great music over the years. Fun looking back sometimes, eh?

    You should have named it: “BUST OF CALIGULA – THE CHURCH ON TOUR”.

    Dja see “Everyone Stares” by Stuart Copeland? Great POV movie about the rise of The Police. I can’t get this right now as i don’t have the cash. I hope it is available in the near future. My accountant(the wife)has her doubts but I’m working on her. Have a great day Steve. Edd

    Thanks a lot Steve for making it available !.I love the first 12 minutes of the studio session a lot with Marty playing his Jazzmaster and the rest of The Church jamming.Magical !some funny moments and very good concert filming.
    And some unexpected moments when I finally saw the face of Mike Lembo ( he really looks like a “mafioso”) and the dishonest girl from NME.

    Spinal Tap? I’m utterly confident that this DVD blows them away.

    I’ll be sure to have my amp on 11. 😉

    Awww man, wished i’d known there was a digital copy, I would have bought that! Saved some cash instead, oh well, at least it’s going straight to The Church SK Bank! Love ya man, can’t wait to get mine in the mail. I’m hoping it doesn’t get beat up like things do sometimes from Australia to the USofA! Thanks Steve for the memories, will be played proudly in my bluray player

    Ordered the DVD and then bought the download (I’m travelling in States and couldn’t wait).

    About an hour in and I’m captivated. There is something in this that is very special. It’s as if you can feel what is going on out of shot. Like you are actually invoking the time and place and being immersed right in it. And there is something really intimate with the eyes ( fans, journalists, Marty, Steve, others ). Just really candid and present. It’s a time machine, maybe the very first.

    I think I can return and see something different each time I look.

    Hi Killa,
    i just finished watching the film… thanks for putting it together, it surely shows the reality of touring and was fascinating. I did feel for the interpreters trying to get across what you guys were saying in some of those pressers! I am a translator myself (in italian and spanish) and my mind boggled thinking of how to translate what you guys were coming up with!
    love your work

    Good god, this thing is good!

    First off, this is absolutely essential for any fan of the Church… and, dare I say it, a bargain at twice the price. Loads of great behind the scenes doo-dads (which really are fascinating) and SO much fantastic live music. I had no idea there would be so much uninterrupted music on this… thought it would all be quick cuts from this to that. Silly me. Great job on the editing too. Really well done!

    So…big thanks for doing this. Just the kinda thing a fan would love, I’d think.

    Which tour are you putting out next? 🙂
