The Church were an interesting band having very occasional hits throughout the 1980s. This one from 1988 takes advantage of the fact that we were celebrating the 200th anniversary of Australia’s white settlement throughout that year. An Australian band singing songs about being under the Milky Way was always going to be successful. Great song by an underrated band, in my opinion.
