Song of the Day 3/2/10

The best 666 songs of alltime countdown continues every day, all the way to #1. Tuesday’s song is #149:

The Church – Dome

With a band name and a title like this, until they build a search engine more powerful than google it’ll be impossible to find this song in any kind of stand-alone format – you’ll have to download it as part of the band’s iconic 1992 Priest = Aura album. It’s frontman Steve Kilbey at his most apocalyptically visionary: no matter how high you build the wall, eventually the marauders outside will find a way over it. The Church are on acoustic US tour this spring, click here for dates.

The Church Spring 2010 US Tour Dates

Iconic Australian art-rockers the Church will be on acoustic tour, a sort of thirtieth anniversary celebration, with a New York show at City Winery on April 23. Can you imagine? It’s been thirty years since Unguarded Moment! This time around, the band has announced they’ll do one song from each of their [one assumes original, rather than greatest-hits] album releases, playing them in reverse chronological order. In other words, they’ll start with something from their latest, Untitled #23 (which ranked high on our Best Albums of 2009 list) and then work backwards. It promises to be interesting, to say the least. To further entice Church fans out, all ticketholders will receive a free copy of the Deadman’s Hand ep, including the title track (a killer cut from Untitled #23) along with unreleased tracks from the band’s “secret vault.”
