Re: The Church

This film screened at MIFF  y e s t e r d a y  , but I missed it:

SOMETHING QUITE PECULIAR: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF STEVE KILBEY Unclassified 18+ 

D  Mike Brook  |  UK,  Australia  (2017)
L English


Genre: Documentary,  Music      Themes: Art,  Biography,  True Story 


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 destroyed his life. This is the story of Steve Kilbey.

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 than 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 his family and almost his mind.

From one of our foremost film chroniclers of Australian rock, Mike Brook (Don't Throw Stones, MIFF 2014), comes the warts-and-all tale of one of our most talented, troubled rock'n'roll legends, all the way from rags to redemption. Fuelled by Kilbey's own brutal honesty and based on his memoir of the same name, Something Quite Peculiar delivers everything you'd ever want from a rock doc – dizzying stories, unsparing confessions and incredible music.

Director Mike Brook and subject Steve Kilbey will be at both sessions to introduce the film and take part in a post-screening Q&A.

Re: The Church

Hejhejhej Marineni!! Sup?

As you may know....I was into dem, big time, from circa -86 to -92 and followed them from quite some time after that too but that period was awesome (and still is). Kinda saddened by Marty Wilson-Piper is not in the band anymore but the snippets I've heard from the new album sounds better than in a long time.

I really want to see that Kilbey documentary btw. Interesting guy.

Good band!

Ok Sir. It will be done.

Hi Ben

Re: The Church

It's amazing really that I can have not heard of an 80s/90s indie band that are that great. We were just watching Youtube late one night as nothing was on TV and Terri said put on Under The Milky Way by the Church. After about 20 secs of the bass coming in I was like "Yeah this is a pretty important moment for me" !!!

I'm starting to realise though that the song is like almost fricking national anthem status in Australia. Like Waterloo Sunset or something. Amazing that something can be that good and that big and just pass you by.

Re: The Church

Btw "Tear it all away" - is like what my old band sounded like in rehearsal on a good day. (In my head at least and that's the important thing right?)
