Steve Kilbey

18:00

A rare solo appearance in the UK by the lead singer and bass player of legendary Psych rock band from Australia – The Church.

With a great new solo album Sydney Ricoco just released, this is a show not to be missed!

“In the late 1970s Steve Kilbey formed ‘The Church’ together with Koppes and Nick Ward in Sydney. In May 1980 Marty Willson Piper joined the band. After some success in their native Australia in the early 1980s, Kilbey and The Church went on to international fame when “Under the Milky Way”, from the 1988 album Starfish, achieved success.

‘Under the Milky Way’ appeared in the top-selling singles charts of both Australia and the United States (US). In late 2011 Kilbey revealed that, at the time of the interview, the song was still used for television
programmes and advertisements.

After recording the Gold Afternoon Fix album in the USA and touring to support it with the Church until mid-1990, Kilbey returned to Australia and made the Jack Frost album with Grant McLennan.
