stardust from the deadman's hand ep
for anyone who doubts the versatility of the two guitar players and the brilliant progressive nature of the church as musicians, 'stardust' hosts and holds the essence of the bands masterful ability to create something akin to sublimation (technically passing from solid to a gas but also emotionally as something unacceptable into something more acceptable) and then there's the lyrics and their delivery...
listen to the lines steve sings, and the tone he uses, he's on the other side, haunting the living.
come on people... what a conceptual masterpiece of literary execution, the angry ghost!
who else could write a song like this?
who else can deliver it to us on the perfect bed of atmospheric guitars... this ain't rock and roll, this is.. the other side.
