Song of the Day 5/23/10

The best 666 songs of alltime countdown continues every day, all the way to #1. Sunday’s song is #67:

The Church – Grind

Lushly jangly, clanging art-rock masterpiece, the concluding cut on the underrated 1990 Gold Afternoon Fix album, an exhausted, embittered view of a band disintegrating. Fortunately, twenty years later, the psychedelic Australian crew remain as vital as ever. The link above is a live cut from 1992

Song of the Day 9/16/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Wednesday’s song is #315:

The Church – Transient

Written and sung by Peter Koppes, one of the great Australian rockers’ two lead guitarists, this hauntingly evocative, propulsive number dates from the 1990 Gold Afternoon Fix album, which seemed mediocre when it first came out but has aged extremely well. Hard to find as a single track, and don’t feel guilty about downloading the whole album: it was released on a major label so the band gets no royalties.
