The church- starfish- fabulous 1988 album art shirt- white - large. One interesting LP that I found in this collection (and one of the few that I'm not going to sell!) is THE CHURCH's "Starfish" album from 1988. I previously listened to this band in those FM radio stations of my city in the late eighties. Their song called "Under the Milky Way" was played a lot by them then, and I liked the song then.
Exclusive discount for Prime members. I really liked the deep and full flowing melodic theme to the album

Australian post-rock band The Church will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their iconic fifth album, Starfish, with a trek across North America this fall.

In recent years, the track has had a resurgence in popularity thanks to covers by The Killers and Sia.
The breakthrough 1988 album by The Church, Starfish has remained the band's most commercially successful release. Band members repeatedly noted how much they disliked being in Los Angeles during the recording sessions; "North, South, East And West" is an indictment of . The album's title was taken from singer/bassist Steve Kilbey's nickname for friend/ musical partner Donnette Thayer.
