Intervention Records is proud to announce the latest LP in its (Re)Discover Series, The Church's 1988 smash Starfish.

The Church's Starfish is a dreamy, atmospheric masterpiece, guitar-driven alt-rock before alt-rock was a term. It includes the timeless smash hit "Under The Milky Way" and "Reptile", both First Wave staples.

Intervention's 2x 180-Gram LP, Artist-Approved Expanded Edition is 18-tracks total, including 8 amazing bonus tracks not on the original LP. These bonus tracks kick off with wonderful acoustic versions of "Under The Milky Way" and "Antenna". The other tracks are so strong it's very apparent that Starfish could have been a potent double LP.

Starfish is 100% Analog Mastered from THE Original Master Tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound. Intervention's cut expands the original 10-song repertoire to three vinyl sides opening up the already massive soundstage and presenting this amazing recording with FULL bass extension and dynamic power. All of the 8 bonus tracks are 100% Analog Mastered from tapes assembled by Ryan K. Smith.

The 180-gram LPs are ultra-quiet, pressed at boutique press, RTI in Camarillo, CA. Intervention replaces its stampers every 500 copies so every pressing is is a hot stamper.

'Under the Milky Way,' still one of the most haunting and elegant songs ever to make the Top 40.
