COUNTDOWN (1974-1987)


The Unguarded Moment


Sometime around late 1981/early 1982, The Church performed "The Unguarded Moment" on the Australian TV show Countdown, the most popular music program in Australian TV history. On this show bands appeared live but mimed the songs to backing tracks. The Church performance can be found on the Countdown: The Wonder Years DVD set, and also on the Triple J Enter The 80s DVD.
