oh !
theres a killa on the road
when he was a celt then he wore woad
if you give this man a bass
he gonna stagger every place
killa on the road
the badde news there was no jazz
the good news
mr kn terned up with the real absinthe
not that watered down fucking rubbish
we buy in aust n england
and smirk n say
ha ha dude we’re drinkin’ absinthe
no baby
this was the real stuff
you know the stuff that drove them olde poets crazee
well seeing im an olde poet
and seeing im already crazy
ttb has a new fave stage drink
real absinthe n sprite
ooh that cloudy grreen likwid
man we may have bin shabby noisy n under rehearsed
we may be jet lagged n tired
but we rocked
rock rock rock n role
i screamed myself , horse
i went to town on my straddle-various bass
like i had no respect
sks catharsis….
i did yoga poses n qi moves
i did the splits
i jumped i stumbled
i boogalooed n i backed off
who knows about the audience?
3 quarters full i guess
who can fuckin tell with these hung-garians
it was so late by the time we got on
what day is this?
who am i?
oh but today
i feel like 13 sumo wrestlers
have beaten me into a pulp friction
druid they dont call the stuff worm wood fer nothing
ok
what do ya expect from a hung over ne’er- do- well
1st thing in the morning
but
no
cos you know im straddlin these contra-dick-shuns
(is he straddlin?)
im gonna have ye olde shower
spiritualise myself
do my yog n my qi
get meta physical
cos youve realised
i am my own opposite
the cleverest n stupidest
the sweaty rocker
n the ice manne
big daddy
the kid
and spooky
i am at the age where i shood no better
but inside theres a teenage hoodlum
who wants to explore the chaos of rock
exploding myths whilst creating knew ones
im ugly im beautiful
im masculine non effeminate
(virgo rising)
im in touch with my inner rascal
and he wants out
let that green genie outta the bottle
straight into my oh positive bloodstream
abuser of substances
fit as a fiddle
grinning grimacing n quoting grimoires
magic manne n class clowne
ha ha
the time beying
the killa
nevets yeblik
stevie jay kay
a nice bunch of guise
who loves ya baby?
who ya gonna call?
tonite
austria
oh vee-anna
what awaits us there?
tune in 2 morrow baby
i need liebens raum
i need to conquer this austro-hungarian empire
im outta my tree, spirit
why hast thou not delivered
that which thou hast promised?

    Now in Vienna there’s ten pretty women
    There’s a shoulder where Death comes to cry
    There’s a lobby with nine hundred windows
    There’s a tree where the doves go to die
    There’s a piece that was torn from the morning
    And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost

    Take this waltz, take this waltz
    Take this waltz with the clamp on its jaws
    Oh I want you, I want you, I want you
    On a chair with a dead magazine
    In the cave at the tip of the lily
    In some hallways where love’s never been
    On a bed where the moon has been sweating
    In a cry filled with footsteps and sand

    Take this waltz, take this waltz
    Take its broken waist in your hand

    This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz
    With its very own breath of brandy and Death
    Dragging its tail in the sea

    There’s a concert hall in Vienna
    Where your mouth had a thousand reviews
    There’s a bar where the boys have stopped talking
    They’ve been sentenced to death by the blues
    Ah, but who is it climbs to your picture
    With a garland of freshly cut tears?

    Take this waltz, take this waltz
    Take this waltz it’s been dying for years

    There’s an attic where children are playing
    Where I’ve got to lie down with you soon
    In a dream of Hungarian lanterns
    In the mist of some sweet afternoon
    And I’ll see what you’ve chained to your sorrow
    All your sheep and your lilies of snow

    Take this waltz, take this waltz
    With its “I’ll never forget you, you know!”

    This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz …

    And I’ll dance with you in Vienna
    I’ll be wearing a river’s disguise
    The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,
    My mouth on the dew of your thighs
    And I’ll bury my soul in a scrapbook,
    With the photographs there, and the moss
    And I’ll yield to the flood of your beauty
    My cheap violin and my cross
    And you’ll carry me down on your dancing
    To the pools that you lift on your wrist
    Oh my love, Oh my love
    Take this waltz, take this waltz
    It’s yours now. It’s all that there is

    Steve,
    always been a truly ugly lookin fucker, so this’s never happened to me, but you must know what it’s like – when you’re such an out n out handsome bastard in yer 20s, d’ya just take for granted that women are interested in you,etc. And how d’yer handle it when the inevitable ageing happens and you don’t get the same level of interest? And then one day y’realise that women in their 20s don’t look at you in the same way anymore – d’ya just shrug it off or does it sting n nag at ya?

    …had an inane and somewhat pointless point of relating, but it’s late friday night, and so:- loved the the “(is he straddlin?)” bit, coz a mate and I always used to say “I dunno, Izzy?” back in the day.

    Of course, we were bona-fide floral jangly types and therefore had cause for smug mirth.

    ah Artiste~
    it is difficult
    to be so far from home
    to know that you cried…
    (muses eyes fill)
    she holds you
    in dreams always
    jazzmine scents the air
    celebrate the last tour date
    doesn’t matter if the English
    can’t get the rooms right
    the walls will burn down at night
    ladders to fires…
    (virgo rising)
    centaurian sun
    hitting truth and beauty with those arrows
    okay, well not always,
    sometimes I hit bullshit instead of bullseyes
    those arrows back on me like a boomerang
    man, right between the Taurus moons eyes!
    thanks, Chiron!
    guache, I’m a lucky, lucky
    beast
    galloping and gala vanting
    darlin’
    it matters not the size
    of the crowd
    but the magic of the music
    played all your cards right
    ace of diamonds bass hands
    songs of you
    formed by great pressures
    vent
    steam
    rock
    roll
    axe
    yell
    whisper
    write
    laugh
    laugh some more
    cry
    dance
    swim in warm seas
    man, I’m trying to give it up
    this here G4
    (the apple w/the nibble outa it on the front makes me giggle)
    JB so nice to let me have
    refuses to obey me
    I write warmly
    this has happened two times
    too many
    I press the publish button
    then-
    poof!
    ha ha it says
    your’e not connected!
    grrrrrr
    hmmm
    yes
    I am familiar with that addiction
    the sweetness and bitterness of it
    music transcendental in the sweet
    sweet lyrics you write
    the frustration and impatience bitter
    and rage;
    do ya think I don’t want to do a mad dance on this laptop
    like in office space when they beat the crap outa the printer!
    each time it throws my loop for a loop
    I’ll show you whose boss, G4 mah hindquarters
    (sigh) I’m over it…
    your vast spectrum
    of a human with a time beings heart
    and soul
    and soles
    love that you are irridescent
    rascally pascally
    shakespearian guache
    van go go oils
    art nouveau pinks
    paint you in prisms
    multi multi multi faceted
    speaking of horses…
    (switching)
    midstream
    one of my favs
    H.Miller and A.Nin
    another dirty American
    californication coast lines
    that French kisser
    a prose poet of olde
    romantic launguages
    eloquent, well bred and well read
    she a natural swimmer
    in that diary from a young age
    Henry could be more than
    a bit forceful
    in truth
    a good hard read though
    you almost need a shower
    or a smoke
    after either of them
    they couldn’t keep their
    words off each other
    (is she…?)
    the ex pat
    and the well traveled lady
    showed Europa
    a thing or three
    they had no money
    lots of honey
    in smokey jazz clubs and beatnik cafes
    sweet and sticky these two
    well,what can you say
    moonlight ripples
    on the Sienne
    ah
    L’amour

    I will free you first from burning thirst
    That is born of a night of the bowl,
    Like a sun ’twill rise through the inky skies
    That so heavily hang o’er your souls.
    At the first cool sip on your fevered lip
    You determine to live through the day,
    Life’s again worth while as with a dawining smile
    You imbibe your absinthe frappΓ©.

    Anyway…hope you are having a blast, and not suffering too much of a hang over. May the force be with you and the gents.

    Has the camera showed up? TTB photojournal entries would be the shiznit. Sorry ’bout the jazz drought, hopefully that will break in Dr. Sigmund’s hometown.

    you rascal
    sweet you are

    itsa bitch about scheduling eye surgery
    mds and paperwork and such
    I just got contacts
    so I don’t have to wear my glasses all the time
    have to go to Seattle to pick up the years supply
    though
    they said they’d fed x them to me
    it would take even longer
    and I look better without the glasses so…
    and I see better without em too
    much easier to use a camera without them in the way
    peripheral vision improved, also!
    you can’t really sauna or hot tub with glasses on neither
    they just get fogged up
    and contacts don’t get condensation
    when your’e viewing steamy photos
    or lookin at the full moon
    so all in all
    I say yay to contacts

    hey somebody-
    what happened to andyL
    did he get in an auto accident?
    please say no…
    is he okay?

    Dear fellow Steve Kilbey and Church adherents. No other band with the exception of the Beatles has recorded four better CDS than the CHurch’s “After Everything Now This”, “Uninvited Like The Clouds”, “Sometime Anywhere” and “Priest=Aura”. These impeccable masterpieces were all recorded after the Chrch’s commercial zenith. RadioHead has two great albums and U2 has three but even OK Computer Cannot touch the four CHurch CDs I mentioned.

    genx — best wishes for your upcoming surgery. I’ll send good vibes your way. And I’ve been thinking…since you can’t see SK’s fantastic calves and buns of steel now, he’ll just have to let you cop a feel. πŸ˜‰

    Andy L — Yikes! I missed hearing that until just now. That’s no fun at all. Good vibes headed your way also.

    Ah Vienna,

    Orson Wells, Mozart, Strauss the Danube.

    Hope u had time for a quick look at the sites. The Ferris Wheel was built in 1897 & was the biggest in the world before the London Eye. Mozart a composer at age 6! $10 for a cup of coffee, $2-$4 if you get lost and wander down some of the side streets.
    Had my history lesson on Vienna this morn, featured on the travel section on the radio.

    Beautiful autumn day here in Sydney, hope the weather over there is good.
    Next stop Zagreb, pity you dont have a days break in between to enjoy these cities.

    Good luck with the next show, hope the voice isn’t too overworked.

    Luv,
    t

    the green fairy
    should be more gentle
    with her Artistes
    their time
    flows crystalline
    ab(sin) the
    crazy companion
    starry night
    burning bright
    in the velvet black
    contrasty
    a ravens shadow white
    flowering birds of paradise
    have taken flight
    soaring through night and day
    day and night
    long journey
    home in sight
    shakespeares muse
    savage and sweet
    kept him up in red light districts
    writing by the golden glow of candlelight
    burning it at both ends
    she Loves him to Death
    time and time
    again
    ink and parchment
    smeared and crumpled
    pearls from shells
    masterpieces from hells
    muse follows
    only the souls
    who paint with fireworks
    like a paint brush
    she whispers
    watercolours
    lays juicy oils
    hollers pastels
    laughs about what she’s drinking
    who, me? then winking~
    asks for more

    Pip,
    Why not stay over in Brighton? Save having to drive back.
    Agree with Gareth – Aura is magnificent. Don’t know if anyone has been looking at the Womb. Hounds of Love (Kate Bush) has been on the menu!!! Destination has too and that’s another fave of mine.
    Miss you Steve,
