CAS Sydney presents The Church ‘Starfish’ with special guest Steve Kilbey

Classic Album Sundays Sydney is proud to present this special weeknight event. On Tuesday March 20, we’ll host a 30th anniversary celebration of one of the greatest of all Australian albums, The Church’s Starfish – with the band’s founder and longtime leader Steve Kilbey as our guest on the night!

Sydney’s The Church Band are one of the most beloved and respected of the wave of Australian bands that broke onto the world stage in the ’80s, with a unique sound that bridged the gap between postpunk and psychedelic rock. Their 1988 album Starfish became their biggest success, a collection of timeless and lush tunes played both delicately and feverishly by a band at the peak of its powers, led by the worldwide hit “Under the Milky Way.” 

Before we listen to this exquisite album on our hi-fi soundsystem, The Church’s bassist, lead singer and visionary songwriter Steve Kilbey will join us for an interview; we’ll also have a Q&A when the album playback finishes, with Steve taking questions from the audience. Needless to say this intimate gathering at The World Bar promises to be quite the occasion for fans of The Church and of this album.
