Something Quite Peculiar 5/2/19


The Church’s ‘Under The Milky Way’ is one of the great Australian anthems. But for the man who wrote it, success became a portal into a world of sex, drugs and Rock ’n’ Roll that almost destoyed his life. Something Quite Peculiar: The Life & Times Of Steve Kilbey - a film directed by Mike Brook - is being shown at London's Regent Street Cinema as part of the Soundscreen Festival on Friday 22nd March at 8.30pm followed by a Q&A with the man himself. By any metric Steve Kilbey, frontman of Oz Rock pioneers The Church, has been one of Australia’s most prolific and influential musicians. Over 40 years he’s released more that 750 songs across almost 50 albums, earning himself endless accolades and a place in the ARIA Hall of Fame. But most people know him for his 1988 international hit, ‘Under The Milky Way’ – a self-described “accident”, which kickstarted a lost decade of heroin addiction and would eventually cost him and his family and almost his mind. Following its screening, Steve is also playing a show at London's The Islington the night after and at Brighton's The Brunswick on Sunday 24th March.
