David Campbell grew up in the suburbs of Adelaide, Australia. His grandmother Joan, who raised him, often played recordings of Nat King Cole and Johnny Mathis during his formative years. His interest piqued, Campbell soon fell in love with entertainers like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, among other "old-school" greats. He first won major roles in the mid-'90s at the Stables Theatre in Sydney, and was soon nominated for an MO Award for Best Musical Theatre Performer. His debut solo record, Yesterday Is Now, was released in 1997, catching the attention of fans and critics far and wide. Noted critics in New York were calling Campbell "the best young crooner on earth." Following a stint on Broadway in 2001, Campbell decided to follow in his famous father's (Jimmy Barnes) footsteps, and move over to rock & roll. He spent the next few years playing bars instead of concert halls, backed by a rock band rather than an orchestra. In 2006, Campbell changed directions yet again, recording The Swing Sessions, a tribute to his jazz-era heroes, produced by Chong Lim. During that same year, he won the Helpmann Award for Best Actor in a Musical for his role in Sunset Boulevard. For his next project, Campbell aspired to make a trilogy, beginning with The Sing Sessions and then tentatively followed by the albums Broadway and Hollywood.

If the EPs emanating from the Church‘s excellent Untitled #23 have proven anything, it’s that the band left many of the best tracks it had recorded off of what was already a strong collection. Deadman’s Hand features the title track, of course, one of the catchiest and, paradoxically, noisiest tunes from Untitled. But the songs following it are more than mere outtakes or filler. (Well, maybe the brief instrumental “The Kicker” isn’t a song so much as an extended intro.) “Dakota” and “The Gardener” hang the band’s dreamy psychedelia on strong melodic backbones, while “Stardust” reintroduces its signature jangle on a moody, memorable pop tune. It’s easy to ignore EPs as simply as simply minor adjuncts to an artist’s catalog, fit for little more than satiating the collector’s impulse. But Deadman’s Hand quickly proves itself to be an essential item in the Church’s canon.

04 Whola Lotta Love (You Need Love)
Tuesday, 28 March 2017
The idea to cover "Last Kiss" came about after vocalist Eddie Vedder found an old record of the song at the Fremont Antique Mall in Seattle, Washington. He convinced the rest of the band to try out the song and it was performed a few times on the band's 1998 tour. The band eventually recorded the song at a soundcheck at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland on September 18, 1998, and released it as a 1998 fan club Christmas single. The band spent only a couple of thousand dollars mixing the song. Bassist Jeff Ament said, "It was the most minimalist recording we've ever done."
Release and reception
In the following year the cover of "Last Kiss" began to be played by radio stations and was ultimately put into heavy rotation across the US. By popular demand the cover was released to the public as a single on June 8, 1999, with the proceeds going to the aid of refugees of the Kosovo War. The cover also was featured on the 1999 charity compilation album, No Boundaries: A Benefit for the Kosovar Refugees. The song helped earn about $10 million for Kosovo relief.
The cover would end up reaching No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. This remains Pearl Jam's highest position on the Billboard Hot 100. It peaked at No. 4 on the Top 40 Mainstream. The song reached No. 5 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and No. 2 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. The "Last Kiss" single has been certified gold by the RIAA.
Outside the United States, the single was released commercially in Australia, Austria, Japan, Mexico, South Africa and the United Kingdom. In Canada, the song reached No. 2 on the Canadian Top Singles chart and became the band's highest charted song in Canada, and later it charted on the Canadian Rock Top 30 chart, where it reached No. 4 and stayed there for two weeks. The song also reached No. 22 on the Canadian Year End Rock Top 50. "Last Kiss" reached the top 50 in the UK and the top 80 in the Netherlands. In Australia, "Last Kiss" peaked atop the ARIA Singles Chart for seven weeks, as well as becoming a moderate top 20 success in New Zealand.
