i have a story in a new book

just out


a song for the road

my story is called

i sing the infernal eternal tour

there are other stories by such people as adalita ,deniz tek

paul kelly, mark seymour etc

my story is some grimy hyperreality

i dont think youre gonna wanna tour after reading it

but its still a good read (i guess!?)


meanwhile a film im doing the music for is a new version of macbeth

filmed in tasmania

surprising how a tassie wilderness looks so much like a scottish wilderness

and the forests too…wow!

getting closer to becoming a reality and early next year hopefully it will be finished!

needless to say its an amazing film and amazing music (no it really is!)

you wait and see

keep your eyes n ears out for macbeth and remember where you heard it first!


meanwhile im keeping this blog short because im working hard on my album


its a beauty and im labouring over it lovingly for ya

true solo albums i enjoy is todds hermit of mink hollow

and petes who came first

anyway this baby should be ready before xmas

a rambling eccentric eclectic and weird bunch of tunes for you all

probably will turn out to be the greatest album evermade……?!

not sure tho, maybe im just an insane egotist

running amok with all these guitars n stuff here

writing oddly meaningful things you only ever half hear

im only ever half here


back to werk!!

    Half where? No, thank you for your labours. Can’t wait to hear solo album! Also, dear Daz, I only half followed sk’s instruction and posted a photo of portrait without framing it. Frankly I’m broke for the moment… but if you look on sk’s fan page under posts by others, hopefully you will see it. I don’t mean out of pride for oneself, haha, although it’s interesting to see how someone else sees you…but hope my attempt to post was a success. I can see it and did it for you, so hope you can too. It’s probably slightly distorted because being unframed, it wasn’t photographed completely flat, well that’s my excuse anyway 🙂 Did me best. Thanks, sk, Sydney’s ambiance has been er ambient I’d say… conducive to work. In your case, creativity.

    At least your ‘being and doing’ what you love, Macbeth sounds fab, forays in the Wilderness with eccentric characters lol. What platform are you using, are you composing direct to image or conceptually and waiting to see the finished video edit later?

    Give me your favour: my dull brain was wrought
    With things forgotten. Kind gentlemen, your pains
    Are register’d where every day I turn
    The leaf to read them. Let us toward the king.
    Think upon what hath chanced, and, at more time,
    The interim having weigh’d it, let us speak
    Our free hearts each to other.
    Till then, enough. Come, friends.

      to a specific tint..than you started a little background painting…
      very cool..and its the size of a cd i framed it between 2 pieces of glass and it stands nicely alone…thanx again !!!

    If you don’t mind me asking, Steve, whereabouts in Tasmania was Macbeth filmed?

    I took a friend around the back roads of Tassie’s West Coast some years back, as we rounded a corner he yelled “Stop the car!”. We got out & then he said “This is more Scottish than Scotland, and I’ve been to Scotland!”

          That’s ok.

          Still be looking forward to it when it is released. Not only for your music but also I’ve just found out that the producer is an old friend of mine, Brian Dimmick. He has meticulous eye for detail.

          His cinematography + your music = magic!

    Keep up the good/hard work sk, it’s good for you.
    The book sounds interesting, can picture being in Tassie listening to the
    beautiful soundtrack and here listening to your new cd.
    Won’t keep you from your work.

    Peace & love

    I think you should do a lot of teasing and promoting for the new album before you put it on the site. Get people all revved up and chomping at the bit for it. Maybe you could debut it during a live, streaming performance that draws thousands of fans! If you want, I could make a video or two for it. I’m getting better and better at them.

    It could be made into a monster if we all pull together as a team! Ha-ha!

        BROKEN TOYS AND HEROS | 10 November 2012 at 6:23 am #

        A live streaming concert of the entire new solo album , as u talk to ur dearest fans by Skype or instant email communication…this would be a great idea…between songs ,as u cool down from the emotions u just spilled out across the web…take ur time…have a laugh, share a story …start the next song…..finish the set…and release the album for sale at the end of the performance….u could link it to ur website…charge a fee for the streaming performance and the fans who pay-per view get a discount when they buy the new album at the same time ( or any other cool exclusive packages) …the performance doesn’t have to b high tech…a casual introduction to ur new music- even a acoustic performance of the new album- so the lyrical nature can ring true… as we all feel like we are together at the same time for this , another historic release in ur fantastic career…


        I’d be honored to play a small part , just as a dedicated fan…

    still here,
    ok….you pushed my ‘on’ button with the the todd reference….
    ‘hermit’ is a huge favourite of mine too,’bread’ is one of the best openers ever.
    steve….is it possible to do better quality sleeves on the self-released stuff?
    i mean, no-one listens to our shit….but we still manage to do a decent
    cover with a track listing that you can actually READ!
    macbeth will break you big………
    you know it.
    i’m still broke down and busted over the church split though…angry even.
    sure would have put dough into a pledge system to patch that up.
    still love ya i guess…..

    speaking of love/anger etc, I would like to say that I am a bit angry lately too. Yes, there’s a bit of an afterglow when sk apologises for being rude and says some sweet things, throw some more crumbs. However, it is a bit disconcerting (along with news of a break up) to see you with your rollies (joints yes I know you smoke them and I’m not completely against it either) shortly after I’ve given you $200 in cash. I do hope you didn’t spend it all on drugs. I soon after paying you have run into some unforeseen expenses, one of which is an operation tomorrow in hospital. I know I owed you the money anyway, but you are an ungracious twat sometimes despite all your wonderful qualities. And pretty transparent: your rudeness suddenly changes to tugging your forelock when you are handed a wad of money which you conscientiously count in front of the giver. I am starting to think loving you/the Church is bad for my health. I always thought it was good for me but now I’m not so sure. I’ll prob have to go to the Factory to confirm that. Next time (?) I pay you cash for something, I’d rather you didn’t then flash your hash in pics. Love, me. p.s. you know my humour and fire often overlap. However, I think you can work it out for yourself.

    …the time will come when , with elation-
    you will greet yourself arriving at your own front
    door , in your own simple mirror…
    and each embrace is a smile upon your belated arrival.

    …the time will come again when , you will love
    again the stranger …who was once your reflection
    who spoke clearly from outside the silences…
    give not the widening circles which tries solitary confinement.

    …the sunset takes down the love letters from upon life’s bookshelf.
    …the sunset traces framed photographs upon forgotten mantels.

    For all your life you were to engrossed to watch the end of the day…
    It is just as the others, one original yet all not quite the same.

    Beyond the black gate:

    My blackened face fades
    …hiding now inside black granite.
    My clouded reflection eyes me
    …like a bird of prey profiling the night.
    My being is slanted against the evening
    …no way to turn for the stone to let go.
    My dependence on indigenous indifference goes
    …unparalleled exonerated from the flash and smoke.
    I touch the world from within its booby trap…
    a glance of wings cutting across my sudden stare.
    I brush the decades off from the black mirror…
    a content gesture to score the unevenness of terrain.
    I was half-expecting to find you here but this isn’t empty…
    its the black colorless night that filled the hillsides of
    similar stones with different names, to many to find

    Speaking of covers, i read where Neil Finn and Paul Kelly are doing each others songs in a new cd. Surely you and another artist with such an extensive canon could do similar? Thoughts?
