fiendss
your humble bumbling hero did well
a lovely venue
a big crowd
an appreciative bunch
the triffids played like demons
i came on 2/3 rds the way thru
sing stolen property
everything goes according to plan
the words now lodged in my head
i am free to interpret
what an amazing song
it goes down great
next lonely stretch
wow
we knock it dead
next wide open road
good but not as good as the others
encore :field of glass
i go to fucking town
running about screaming myself horse
i fall to my knees
i wave me bloody arms about
i give it everything
i let my mind shutup
and i let my voice just roar n sing
the words all come off their carousel in my head
i nail it
i nail it good
no major cock-ups
some minor timing issues,,,nothing more
what a great nite
im knackered
go home
eschew after party bollocks
tomorrow : bimbadgen winery
ok
i’m well on course
love
kilbey

    Good to hear you’re happy with your vocal delivery. Hopefully something will surface on youtube. I saw the Triffids once in the 80s but at a time I was more into Virgin Prunes and The Fall.. in other words, I did not get them at that time. And in case you ever return to the smirking detached SK.. no one did that better than you πŸ˜‰

    He's right fiendsss, our humble hero transformed into a wild panther on stage last night!!! (not a mangy one tho). Sk, I couldnt believe it was you singing up there last night, you were fantastic, so much energy and feeling put into those 4songs, if I closed my eyes I don't htink I would have recognised it was my fav singer up there!!! The band was great and Ricky on drums was a bonus too, hes a natural! I realised last night David McComb wrote alot about LUV, about the heartbreak, the sadness, the longing and a bit of happiness too, he had a way with words,thats for sure.
    A fantastic night, thanx Triffs & Friends
    Have a safe trip back home sk, Melby's gonna miss u πŸ™
    love Amanda

    Congratulations Mr. Kilbey. Sounds awesome. I’ve just decided to put on Born Sandy Devotional, which I only recently got thanks to your blog. It’s interesting, I don’t know it well yet.

    played the new shriek cd last night for the first time. i posted a review in ‘wombat’ but i’ll just state here for the record… ‘wow.’
    certainly unlike anything that precedes it, it’s exceptional in it’s uniqueness. it was love at first play. congratulations to all involved. amazing music and your vocals just seem to get better and better all the time.
    i wish i could have seen the triffid show, i am really unfamiliar with their music but i’m sure they are a great band.

    Just listened to excerpts from the soundtrack – the Squid lies down on Voss Bender Avenue or something.
    You’ll be touring with the Mars Volta next. Love it.

    I would seriously pay to watch that match. A couple of bruises would be a small price to pay to get some peace on this board. Hell, that’s all any of us are looking for with your kind of music, Killer. That someone has to disrupt and otherwise zenful little spot on the web is just a damn rotten shame.

    Peace. You know I’m always rooting for you.

    I fear that lame Barry seeks to soil my good name by using my moniker. I made no comments to any bearded folk. If there be arse kicking to be done and you need some local support, old fella, let me know…I’m only a suburb away.

    Not that I endorse violence, mind you. Just arse kicking.
