First-ever vinyl reissue of the 1990 album from Australian indie rock legends The Church!
The Arista label sought to build on the success of their 1988 album Star?sh by teaming them up again with producer Waddy Wachtel for Gold Afternoon Fix. But the band wanted Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones to produce. Arista prevailed. Then, Marty Willson-Piper's Rickenbacker 12-string got nicked. So, no 12-string. Then, drummer Richard Ploog left the band at the end of the sessions, to be replaced by Patti Smithdrummer Jay Dee Daugherty for the tour. Not optimal circumstances, to say the least...yet, as often happens with these kinds of situations, the band, inspired by all the turmoil, produced another classic. Metropolis was the hit, but stick around for the epic album closer Grind among other highlights.
