Here on Stranded we periodically re-visit the exquisite and arguably peerless musical back catalogue of legendary Australian band The Church. And it's fitting this week given that the band, who have been recording masterworks of lyrically evocative guitar-driven psychedelia since 1980, are embarking on a North American tour in support of their 25th album 'Further/Deeper', which includes a date in Vancouver on 21 Feb! A contingent of hard-core fans have expressed dismay with the departure of founding guitarist Marty Willson-Piper, but it's clear from listening closely to the new record, that replacement Ian Hague (formerly of Powderfinger) has very confidently stepped in to fill Marty's formidable shoes.
