If The Outer Church has a deity - which you would expect, what with it being a church 'n' all - Vangelis would be it. The great bearded Zeus of synthesized splendour, he never gets the props he deserves for the remarkable run of albums he produced between 1972 and 1985, nor his contribution to one of the world's greatest progressive rock outfits, Aphrodite's Child. A few plaudits for co-writing the deathlessly beautiful 'State Of Independence' with Jon Anderson wouldn't go amiss, either. In any case, he does get played rather a lot at The Outer Church.
