semi-detached suburban mr james

to tell you the truth there is a lot happening at the moment

ok i guess i’ll just try n mention everything in random order

as is my want and my wont

first of all i was knocked off my chair

by the brilliance of the hammock track i sang on

its called “no agenda”

a classic case of having  a spliff

go into a bit of the old semantic hyper priming …you know….

then i sing it all a load of different ways

and timothy gg powles has pulled out all the stops

for tis he who am behind this lovely mix

he is a true master of the studio our timothy

i am totally over the moon with the song

very nice work to all involved

next

i’m playing at an italian restaurant on thursday night

here in sydney

its extremely lowkey

but i am seeing it as a chance to experiment with my raconteur carryon

it will be more intimate than i have ever been ever

i want me and the audience to feel at ease here

i want to let them see the real me whoever the fuck that is

its nobody really but its an interesting concept

i’m different everytime i run into myself

i say to myself you should try being me

so a small function room no more than 30/40

and me and my trusty guild 12 imbued with music

yeah entertain em

32 years of stories with the church

why this? why that ?

so be there its this thursday night in russell lea in sydney

uh i did this jello biafra gig at the forum 2 shows

i guess he certainly confused my expectations of him

anyway he has his kinda thing spoken word thing

a lot of it was this time examining the “occupy” movement

hes committed to good socialist sensible principles

he’d like sweden actually itd be his cuppa tea

so after jellos done his thing

they trot out some panellists including your ‘umble’ero

what the fuck do i know ?

so i mention the fact that money

and the monetary system are a big part of the problem

money corrupts almost everybody

so we need to get rid of money

and then i said

just coz there are many conspiracy theories

does not yet mean that the conspiracy does not exist

i believe there are certain international bankers

yeah you know those guys who bankrolled both sides

in some of those great big wars we seem to keep having

and these bankers also run the american reserve bank

sorry they are the reserve bank

it seems to me that we should take their influence into view

thirdly the spiritual component

its all maya for goodness sake

this life is a dream when youre dead

nothing to get hung about

anyway i didnt contribute that much

then the next day i swung over to m kennedys

who lives in leafy brunswick

we nailed four more songs and lo they were good

the church is on a national tour in dec so watch out!

most tickets are on sale now

this is our very best show so far

worth the $ just to hear p=a in its entirety

and u23 n starfish not bad either

sk premium continues to evolve in our head

soon we will have a premium only section on this site

where SKPers will be able to see and hear exclusive stuff

we will have merchandise soon including t shirts CDs bags etc

we are working on a way where i could be available for chats

(apparently bowie does this)

anyway theres stuff coming down the line

SKP will continue to hopefully  evolve

and everyone will be happy

viva the time being !

      there is no real me
      i am changeable and i interact differently with everyone i meet
      i play all parts but in reality i am none
      just a collection of my various compartments
      my relationship with you informs my actions
      i try to be all things to all people
      i am a ship constantly plotting and replotting my course

    Excellent update Steve

    agreed No Agenda is mesmerising

    hopefully you could do a show like you are in Sydney here in the states, would love to see a show like that.

    Do we get to hear those KK songs here at SKP?

    Your tour line up for the Nov/Dec is amazing, Future shows are a must for those of you in Australia, the two El Momento albums played live in their entirety, man I am jealous. plus a few full electric show. Man I need to find a job in Australia and move ASAP! Amazing tour you have lined up there Steve. Please come back to the states soon.

    Take Care,

    but join my club for only 100 dollars and get the sk premium, merch coming soon… what a conundrum

    • avatar
      thetimebeing | 25 October 2011 at 9:23 pm #

      i admit thats a contradiction bopper yes
      of course as long as the monetary system prevails one must have money
      i cannot live on principles alone
      in the last 10 years i have gone under the official australian poverty line several times
      a lot of my finacial ruin is my own doin’ (hey that rhymed)
      nonetheless i have a family i have debts i have responsibilities i have taxes
      i owe the taxman again…..
      i believe skp will deliver a good value deal to those who are interested in my trip
      its no more greedy than selling records in the old days
      its just different thats all
      its an upfront investment in my ability to continue to exist
      my blog takes about 2 hours to write on average
      at 100 dollars a year you are paying 2 dollars a week for it
      and thats just the blog
      plus on top of that youre getting 3 or 4 albums a year for nothing
      and a dvd or 2
      and a code to get into a place which is gonna have some very special stuff
      which will never see the light of day outside this one place
      coming soon is my garage band record, isidores “life somewhere else” ,the art dvd
      thats for sure and other projected things but i need finance to finish things off
      do you guys really think i’m being greedy?
      i’m disappointed that you think that
      i dont ask a lot
      if you work it out over a year
      its pretty fucking cheap

We all have to survive unless you grow your own garden, and milk your own cows!? Your just cutting out the middle greedy corporate man, that’s all! My only question is, do we have to pay again after our year is up or is this a lifetime membership? Anyways, can’t wait for all of the special presents in store for us fans! Woo-hoo!

        Steve,

        I do not think you are asking too much at all, I wish I could give more and will as I can. A lot of artist are doing things like this these days. Lloyd Cole asked his fans to front $50.00 to pre-order an album 9 months before it was completed, in return the investors got a limited edition version with a bonus disc of demos etc. If I remember correctly this worked very well for him. James UK band my wifes favourite on their last tour sold VIP tickets $100 each and you got to get in early pick your seats and watch a rehersal with the band, they played songs not to be performed that night and you could ask questions get stuff signed etc. Steve I would love it if The Church did this on the next tour and I would pay more for that. My point is if youre a fan you have a choice, I dont think Steve would of been offended if you were still here reading and did not join SKP, I would not be able to come here knowing I am missing out on special editons, items or SKP only promotions. If I think back to buying vinyl, cassettes, cds, concert T’s and concerts themselves of The Church and related projects I have probably spent thousands and have no regrets. I wish the band received 100% of what I have spent but they dont. I feel this is the least I could do for 28 years of magic. I will also continue to spend on Church related projects until they stop coming out. I really have no interest in any other music anymore. Steve many of us owe you much more than money, so please never think you are being greedy.

        Take Care,

        Jason

        I couldn’t agree more. Worth every penny and more. Just pointing out the irony of the two concepts mentioned so closely together, tongue in cheek. Did not mean to imply greed on your part. We all know the opposite is true of you Steve. You should be paid handsomely. And so should a banker who also cares for his family and serves an invaluable service. Humans have always fought each other. We always will. Blaming wars on bankers is a bit of a stretch but I certainly respect your opinion. Power is corrupting. I voted for Obama but he has continued to drop bombs, even picking on a few more countries, and is even celebrating the killing of the leader of a soverign nation. It is certainly easy to lose faith in these troubled times but i suspect that has always been the case. Apologies for any offense my previous statement may have caused.

    who you going to be then when there’s 40 different people in front of you on Thurs night? sounds like you’ll be pulled in 40 diff directions all at once
    can we make song requests for Thursday night?
    if so, can you play that one, I don’t know its name and
    I can’t find it on your video page anymore,
    but the one where you sing about “give me serenity, give me surround…”
    2 bucks a week for all that sounds like a great deal to me
    and you must have loads of bills to pay with all those daughters
    I reckon the real you is the one that talks to you about your day as
    you lie in bed waiting to fall asleep

    I’m so hoping to get to a ‘Future Past Perfect’ show! Slightly broke my upper arm a few weeks back, so optimistic while remaining realistic…

    On money/captialism/occupying: Jesus of Nazareth (he was the Nazz!) famously said ‘The love of money is the root of all evil’. Our increasingly illiterate culture constantly truncates it to ‘money is the root of all evil’, which annoys me no end because of *course* it was an attitude of the human heart that was being illuminated, still holds true today.

    On experimenting with your raconteur carryon – I’d love to be there! Hope the gig’s great, you’ve had me in stitches several times recently… as well as my invited guests at Tilley’s last December! So I reckon you have the raconteur thing well and truly in the bag.

    Take care Steve.

    That La Casa gig sounds really cool. I think it’s a perfect setting for you. I’d be there if it wasn’t on the other side of the world. Haven’t heard “no agenda” yet, but I will definitely check it out. I did watch the video promo for that Australian Songbook album. Lots of great sounding songs that I’m not familiar with. Of course, UTMW shimmers and shines above all the others. There’s a whole other dimension to that song that sets it apart. Heard it the other day in the supermarket. Even after 60,000 listens, it still mesmerizes me.

    I don’t think you need to explain why you’re doing SKP. I think you’re smart and well justified to do it and I wouldn’t mind if you pushed the model even further. Looking forward to the merchandise.

    quick note re occupy: the governments need to listen and listen right this momment – right now, but then the press will come out with tidbits about (each) in their official positions and what they received to allow all of this… but it’s better for those who accidentally caused this (stupid or corrupt) to just put everything back in order asap. otherwise in ten years (and I’m being kind in overestimating those years inbetween… it’s really closer to five) it won’t be only protesters; it will be upwards nearer to 50 percent of the population on the streets — and they won’t be protesting; they’ll be on the streets. at least this is becoming a true world event with a cause that isn’t an individual cause/desire. you see it in their faces this time. they’re afraid more than angry.

    protest on — doing laundry and will be bringing clean blankets (and apples).

    blog song request
    “i walk a sky of stone
    just to find i’m not alone
    i wrote this song about?
    i refuse to show remorse
    all this energy coming in through the crown
    just astonished me….dollar and pound
    i ‘m tired of the life i live
    just to find i need my ?
    i wrote this song just now
    with my sacred calves and my holy cow
    all this energy coming in through the crown
    thrilled me endlessly…hammer and pound
    i stumble through this veil of tears
    wondering where life goes when it disappears
    i wrote this song of songs
    for the faithful few and the jealous?
    all this energy coming in through my crown
    give sanctuary give me surround?
    give me sanctuary give me give me surround?

    could the first lines be from gormenghast? (sp?)

    “money corrupts almost everybody
    so we need to get rid of money”

    Love tokens. Yep, the government could print love tokens instead of dollars and the only way to get paid is to do kind deeds for others. Corporations and families with large holdings of love tokens would really be da bomb. Nobody would be homeless, no starvation and the weather would always be perfect. I haven’t put any thought into this theory but it might work, possibly…maybe. ;^)

    Steve, I think your plans for SKP make a lot of business sense. After all your years and experience in the business, why let someone else take what you should keep? Being shrewd in business doesn’t make you greedy. And I’m sure I’ll be an SKP-er at some point… but right now two of my kids are in college. Talk about tightening your belt!! Anyway, hope you don’t mind if I still hang out on your blog… (for the time being!)

    I am constantly surprised and confounded at attitudes toward artists. Most of the artists I know work very hard for a very long time for varying financial reward. They create culture and make life magical, bearable and beautiful for others. They confront, provoke and invite reflection. They elevate the spirit. It is a job, a calling, a gift- a way of life. It can’t be switched off. Artists never stop working – they are always observing and researching, even when they’re not in the process of making. The good, enduring and dedicated artists, such as yourself, should be paid very well indeed, for all endeavours.

    two of our little party have never seen the church live.
    this should be quite the initiation for them.
    the demograhics of the nine are..1 sixty y.o.,6 fifty somethings, a thirtysomething and a nineteen y.o.
    we have a yorkshireman,and new south welshman ( who claims to have shared a
    spliff with one of the band..he can’t remember which one, in the early eighties),six victorians et moi.whatever i am.

    Tim Powles is not only a master of studio but a great songwriter too.
    I consider “Suffer” (from “Tyg’s In Space”) as one of the greatest songs written by a member of The Church. I even told him after the Paris show in 2004, the only time I could speak to him. He seemed surprised so I suppose he needs encouragement…
    Otherwise, I think that helping you with money is the least we can do. You changed my life with your songs, and I definitely can’t change yours with anything else than money, so please accept it.
    Have a nice gig in the italian restaurant.

    to be completely frank the xmas album isn;t a good idea at all , in my opinion. SK is conceptually superior to that.

      Rubbish! Sure a lot of artists put out some piece of crap “Christmas” thing but it need not be so. I think it would be more of a challenge than anything.

    ok steve and all you lovely TTB’ers….
    lf you have a few moments spare please could you check out this link:

    http://blog.interflora.co.uk/vote-for-your-favourite-halloween-shop-window/

    to vote for the best interflora halloween window display. My youngest daughter april-scarlett has done the window for Newman’s florist, Worcester and i’d be really grateful for your votes if you like the window as april has been struggling with narcolepsy and cataplexy for over 10 years and I’m really proud of her qualifying as a florist this year.
    some of you know what a long hard slog this has been….a few years ago it seemed impossible that she would ever have any kind of independent or worthwhile life at all.
    so winning(or just getting a healthy score)would be a major event for her.
    born april ’87 and raised on a steady diet of churchy goodness she attends every british gig with
    me!
    thanx in advance to y’all!
    bests,
    andy.

    p.s voting closes on the 30th…..
    p.p.s sorry for the blog hijack steve!

    I don’t have time to read all of the responses to the blog but just want to let you know that I recently sent in my $$$ for SKpremium and I am quite looking forward to it. I don’t know if I’m repeating someone else’s sentiment but you put a lot out there for “zippo” in return. I read your blog when I can and find it quite enjoyable. The sheer entertainment is worth my dime. Good luck with SKpremium. Can’t wait!

    I just found out that I may be on an Irish tv show in Ireland on Monday and if I wasn’t cut I’ll send you a link if that’s ok. I sang in Irish with a friend. The show is in Irish but music is universal, yes? I remember seeing you solo at a very small show in Philly many years ago. I think you had everyone backstage after the show and we had a blast. Have fun at your gig.

    When I had some money
    I was somebody
    now I’m just
    a talented nobody
    with nothing
    and
    so are my few friends

    Can anybody explain why?

    I’d love to be able to afford to pay $100 to read and be privy to the specialness. Sorry SK but I can’t afford to even pay $10. Apparently I have talent tho – so – I should console myself with that 🙂
