look
i listened to coldplay yessaday
i was at space junk 3 working on the c
when i said to tim
a whole lotta fiendss been saying gwynnies boy
been borrowing our groove…
the thunderous though diminutive lord of percussion
swung around in his chair
by some chance the album was lying on the floor of the studio
we bunged on the track “yes”
nothing so far…hmmm
we look at each other
suddenly
uh oh
we gotta severe case of church-itis
or is that how he hasta sing when hes down low?
tims eyes were widening
good lord its like a cross between 2 of your melodies he said
as his voice goes up into his normal range its obviously young christopher
but when it sinks down its…its..its nevets yeblik
well there you go
did any one here ever hear this record where these guys took utmw
and set different words to it….was it shed seven…oh ha ha ha
now i have read a few reviews of coldplay where the c has been invoked
i never really thought it myself until i heard this
i mean, c’mon , if that aint me, then blow me down with a feather
look i dont mind em
i like some of their songs
i’m glad hes gotta bit of me in there at last
wait till you hear the churches new record
i imitate every great singer there is
all in the first line of the first song
i’m flattered and i’m happy
he can lay a million quid on me and i’ll be even happier
funny though aint it i said to timbo
this record which sounds not unlike us will get played everywhere
while our record which sounds not unlike us
will probably never get played nowhere
thats just the way it is
a station who flogs this song would never play us
and thats just the way it is
and we have mega fans in high places
and they cant help us
and thats just the way it is
i see people asking why we never played a peel session
peel didnt like us one bit
and thats just the way it is too
its too late now
we are old and obscure
our last hit was 20 years ago
our only hit was twenty years ago
there are no “shoulds” in rocknroll
theres only the fickle finger of fate
the ebb n flow of popularity that no one may track
lets never forget this
i fucked it all up for myself
ok
take a deep breath
and say
(it may be hard to …but do it)
steve fucked it up for himself
there…lets get it out there in the open
gold avo fix was an ok album
when what we needed a decider…
we shoulda given em priest =aura next
but i lost focus
i lost concentration
i was duplicitous
i was too caught up in arguing and theorizing
i was arrogant and pig headed
i just went along with stupid ideas
i let people who didnt understand run the show
and finally i got into the gear
which exacerbated everything a 100%
i had my chance
how many chances you think they give out?
i had my chance and i severely n thoroughly blue it
none of this has much to do with actual music per se
gaf was mediocre
priest was a towering masterpiece
you want the “big music”?
you want wide screen wall to wall rock?
of course the idiots at the time hated it
funny enough people say to me edder veddie likes the church
and grave dohl too
two of grunges leading lights
people say radiohead too
hey im sure they listened to all the guitar bands just like us
me…?
i try n sing like a mixture of johnny winston o boogie
and louis reid and david jones and bobby z and these days
nevets yeblik coming to the fore
i dont begrudge coldplay their dew
hes a talented bloke aint he?
hes a good n proper singer aint he?
yellow was good wasnt it? i liked it n so did the doodles
reserve your ire for the truly worthless
(insert their names here)
(i dont dare in case i meet em)
ok
im gonna end on another case of instant fucking karma
im standing there checking out at the hoity toity hotel in melb
a mate of mine was checking out too
no party for you olde bean ..he asked through his hangover
nah i said i didnt wanna get stuck talking to….
my mate filled in the sentence for me:
…some awful biz type like…um…roger kaputnick..ha ha!
oh yes roger kaputnick! i laughed tho i had never met roger at all
we both had a good laugh
roger fucking kaputnick ha ha ha oh tee hee hee!
i stride across the foyer
a man approacheth me its…no..why..its..
oh..ah hello roger….
steve? i just wanted to say you were really the bees knees last night..!
he shook my hand warmly and walked away
damn! when will i ever learn..
then
my hungover mate lost ‘is bloody mobile phone…aawwww!
guess who found it n returned it to him?
roger kaputnick!
thats right
how did you think i felt then?
foolish!

    you know, the Church do have so many fans in high places. And speaking of Coldplay, did you know when they went to play their first gig ever, they hadn’t a name yet, so they chose “Starfish” for their name for their first gig. No shit, go google it. I saw it on a Canadian documentary show a few weeks back……just google “Coldplay starfish” you’ll see….The Church are #1. Coldplay sure have elements of Church in their music but no one comes close to the Church in my books….

    one extremely stupid review below just to round off and bury the church-coldplay approximation…feel free to bag this matt schild sk, some people just deserve it…however, im sure ure used to crap like this…its one thing to miss the point, another to then go and write an “essay” about it….

    The Church’s Steve Kilby must really, really hate Coldplay’s Chris Martin, and not like the usual “God, I can’t stand that putz in Coldplay” sort of thing, either. Yeah, he gets to you and me, with his goofy haircut, his holier-than-thou super-hot wife and his constant string of boasting about writing the greatest albums of his generation. But he must really stick in Kilby’s craw: He’s one-upped The Church’s only claim to fame.

    For nearly 20 years, Kilby led The Church’s revolving-door lineup to aim to be the most easily accessible epic-rock outfit ever. With one part jangle, one part off-the-shelf arena rock, The Church rode out the ’80s and ’90s as the rock act that was edgy enough to slip into alternative radio every now and then, but still nice enough to be played, at a reasonable volume, of course, at the office. It’s nice, it’s expansive and it’s totally devoid of any distracting emotional content.

    Things were going just great until a little band called Coldplay had to come along and mess everything up. Admittedly, The Church hadn’t been riding high since 1988, when “Under the Milky Way” propelled the Aussies into the charts, but once Martin and his warmed-over U2 thing got going, there really wasn’t much hope. The Church, the onetime masters of grandiose schlock, had been out-cheesed by a gang of Brits with a Bono fetish.

    With Uninvited Like the Clouds, The Church is still licking its wounds. Making another effort to score with pseudo-epic guitar pop, The Church returns with its trademark shimmer as the outfit throws the notion of succinct songwriting to the winds. What’s left is little more than overreaching layers of guitar and pompous melodies held together with just enough “Milky Way” nostalgia to play on the glory days. The Church strikes out to be grand and epic on Uninvited Like the Clouds but end up leaving listeners to wander through bloated arrangements. “Block” opens the album with a six-and-a-half minute arrangement that features no less than 957 guitar parts tossed on top of each other for the bigger-is-better approach. “Pure Chance” also surpasses the six-minute mark, dropping a slowly unfolding ballad that could be a lullaby in the Coldplay household. Other tracks like “Overview” and “Day Five” tap studio extras like piano to stretch out the long-winded arrangements.

    The Church seems to confuse length with epic qualities, however. For all its longer songs, Uninvited Like the Clouds is never epic, mostly because the band lets its song structures go to hell as its songs tip past the four-minute mark. There’s a lot in each track – but a lot that should have been vetted out and streamlined during pre-prodcution.

    It’s tough for The Church. As hard as it tries to be the world’s leading inoffensive alt-rock band, Coldplay has it licked. While that’s great news if you’re looking to soundtrack a gum commercial and can’t afford Coldplay’s scale, it’s a heck of a bummer for anyone who wants music with a pulse.

    Didn’t Thommy Yorke describe the chrunch as his musical roadmap? Difficult thing being a fan. We’ve had the years of magic…maybe you see more the struggle? I remember you talking about the $150k advance for GAF. Maybe if you’d compromised more you’d be “wealthier” but would you have your girls? Would we have had… HOB/BOB/AENT/PU/FY/BY/BWTB/ULTC the El mo’s etc.

    Hi Steve,

    Yes, Coldplay do have some ok stuff, but when this Matt guys’ article says the crunch are “totally devoid of any distracting emotional content” that really gets up my goat! (maybe i’m not used to reading bad press ’bout you?).
    Some people i guess just don’t “get it”, however who cares i guess…I LOVE what you and the guys do, and that’s what matters to me…sure i love lots of different music – who doesn’t? But The Church are, and always will be my inspiration, my reference, my go-to band, my numero uno, my ‘thing’…it’s just the way it is.

    For richer, for poorer…in sickness and in health…til’ death do us part!

    You the man.

    Cheers,

    Jon from Geelong.

    P.s. Been enjoying your blogs as usual – i read everyday…

    Not going to be a Coldplay when they’re thirty years on…

    Not going to listen to their 14th record, should there ever be one.

    There’s but one Church

    There’s but one Killer

    There’s imitations aplenty, but there’s but one combination that produces what we all love.

    Virtually everyone who logs in checks in reads in drops in has upwards of 30-50 separate purchases they’ve made since the 80s of your stuff–the record companies made boatloads off of you, selling millions and told you, oh, sorry–you only sold 145,000 copies while they stuffed boxes for sale in western euro or argentina into planes and flew them out posthaste to make more cash from your brilliance.

    The question is–at the end of the day–can you sleep?

    Martin himself has to be praying no one laughs in his face and calls him a killer-ripper-offer…probably has security bust ya up if you cite what he stole.

    Nah, ain’t a problem at all, with the coldplay and all. They can do what they want.

    But there is virtually no way–no way–that anyone will be sitting here twenty years on waiting for them to polish up a record and get it out, no way…

    Maybe things haven’t unfolded as perfectly as they could have, they rarely do. But like Davem said, my life has been enriched so much by the C… not just music, but the people I’ve met, the places I’ve been & the choices I’ve made, and I am so much the better for it. And we have Mimesis!

    Time will tell if those Coldplay fellows will have retained their personal & artistic integrity 20 years on.

    wow…that was some instant karma…figures though, right? weird how quickly it comes around sometimes.
    speaking of wow…what a fucked up review of ultc. can’t believe it…in fact, i think all of the reviews i read on it were positive ones. like somebody said…some people just don’t get it. i personally feel lucky to have so much great music by The C to listen to any time i want. it inspires me and i love i get to turn my kids on to it. my 8 year old went to bed tonight listening to forget yourself…at his request to hear some music by the guy who has the same birthday as him.
    glad you heard the coldplay song…he’s certainly invoking his inner kilbey. and yeah, thom yorke did mention the church in an interview as being an influence. so you’re definately appreciated…now if you could just get paid well for it…that would have to be some good luck, karma…something

    Hotwork, yeah, good pun actually but don’t forget: Third by Portishead.

    (That review by the mattchild is R I D I C U L O U S. Fuck journalism and fuck something remotely called “music journalism”. My life started to happen when I finally had the guts to trade this sickening thing journalism for art in anyway, anyform. Even inside this hopeless system I don’t have a better answer for. This unqualified text by someone who obviously doesn’t know how to WRITE – speech, coherence, elegance, choice of words, grammar understanding and even the vocalist’s name – is the eloquent depository of the fake pomposity he credits to The Church. Music journalists generally are frustrated mice, even more today that fans in their blog-territories are more responsible for one’s success than them. I’m glad for it. They can be better with less power perhaps. Their so-personal points (badly) hidden behind their supposed language expertise became the fans’ confessedly so-personal preferences. I pity someone who equals length and epicness (“I Don’t Know” and “Fly” are more epic than “Block”). Imbecile, The Church didn’t do it, you did it. But it’s the journalist disease: they really believe they speak for an invisible entity who holds the truth and they really believe they left their egos behind to hold this truth. Of course, they aren’t bold enough to be artists which means to hold your ego and forget the truth. This is more interesting to society than a coward, stupid and unexperienced piece of “opinion”.)

And while you’re busy on your knees, learning from the masters, I’d love to hear some music you’ve written. Anything. Please, please, let us hear your wonderful, enlightening music. I dare you, Mr. Shilled.

    The Kipper | 5 July 2008 at 9:57 am #

    Well, if I had to tag it offhand, I would say that the “Yes” vocal on the verse sounds very similar to “Aura”. But, later on in the song, CM sounds like Ray Davies (as he does through the entire title track…I’m sure CM could do great cover of “Apeman” or King Kong” if he chose to.) And in other songs, he sounds like Paul Simon, Sting, Dr. W. O’ Boogie, Karl Wallinger, Bono, Morrissey, Kerr, etc. These Coldplay guys are musical chameleons. I would have guessed that they would have contentedly continued punching their Simple Minds ticket and the perpetual rewriting of their “Clocks/Speed of Sound” hit groove. For better (I would assume), Eno took them in a different direction…a concept album with enough homages and direct references to fill a phone book. But enough about that…I’ve heard the Coldplay CD a few times now, and I’m not here to praise it, but to bury it on my shelf. Frankly, if Viva la Vida was an album by The Church, I would be very disappointed.

    Steve, most of us understand that you weren’t going to take obvious route to “success” by rewriting UTMW over and over again for mass consumption. The later masterpieces wouldn’t have been on the road to Sell Out City…no P=A, no AENT, no FY. I’m certain they wouldn’t have came to be if things had gone in a different direction.

    There’s just no comparison between the value of rare, uncompromised art and the value of something that is massed produced. This is the very reason that most of us here are so passionate about your work…it’s worth every bit of our passion. And we are thankful that you have kept it that way. We all have a bit of pity in our hearts for the other people in the world who don’t understand this.

    I don’t mind Coldplay. I’ve heard some of their songs — liked some, didn’t like others. None (so far anyway) have made me feel compelled to explore the band further or actually spend any money on them, but if someone else is thrilled and inspired by them I think it’s great. And I’m glad there’s a bit of Church inspiration in their music.

    Of course this:

    this record which sounds not unlike us will get played everywhere
    while our record which sounds not unlike us
    will probably never get played nowhere

    is indeed very frustrating. In a perfect world you guys would be huge, but we all know it’s not now, nor will ever be, a perfect world. But like so many others have already noted I’m so glad the Church exists and has made/is making the music you have/do. You’ve enriched and improved my life in ways no other band ever has and I will be eternally grateful for that.

    Got a good laugh out of your instant karma story. I’ve come to believe what really separates us from the other animals is our remarkable ability to engage in snarky comments even when we know they will turn right around and bite us in the ass!

    the very reason your’e so fuckin’ great as a bloke….and as part of a band is because you see past all this shit.
    you just do the best you can…
    you do…what you CAN do.
    i’m sorry but the sort of spiteful drivel pumped out by so-called rock journos these days is appalling!
    coldplay are ‘church-lite’,
    that’s why the prat likes ’em!
    ‘the real thing’ is too intense for him.
    we work on ceap-shit gear out of a garage(a small one at that) and
    WE PISS ALL OVER COLDPLAY!!!!!
    thats how good they are…just ok.
    this is a twisted fucked-up world
    with little or no justice in it,
    and steve…..you know that better than anyone.
    you’ve been there.
    i belive you ‘n the druids to be the most visionary rock outfit of our time.
    and that’s the problem….high art.
    coldplay serve a function…AOR?, MOR?….something for those with a passing interest….those who just can’t quite fully commit.
    c’mon,
    stop mopeing about, and get all this music out to us!

    i guess evan dando from the lemonheads used to date gwinny p. there is a song off car button cloth (6ix) when i guess evan got pissed.. the lyrics are “here comes gwyneth’s head in a box” ha

    I respect Coldplay and I like Radiohead. Neither have released a CD better than Forget Yourself or Beside Yourself.

    Popularity is a bitch. My guitar hero Jeff Beck is not nearly as succesful as Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, David Gilmour or Brian May. Ironically all four of them have asserted that Jeff Beck’s superior to them.

    Steve Kilbey is the lyrical and vocal overlooked icon who surpasses Yorke, Martin, Stipe, Bono and Morrissey. Stipe is close though.

    What’s wrong with sounding a bit like Jeff Buckley, Jón Þór Birgisson and Bono? He even sounds a little like Paul McCartney and Peter Gabriel on some tracks. So what! He can not help it if he happens to have a voice that reminds the listener of other vocalists.

    As for sounding like SK … I don’t think he sounds anything like him. His timbre is nothing like Steve’s.

    Anons: 442 – He can sing, but so what? 446 – What has wanting to punch CM in the face got to do with CP’s music?

    i dunno what the fuss is about, they turn out nice disposible pop songs that the masses can digest without thought, like macdonalds or burger king, yeah radio friendly, easy on the brain, tunes you can whistle.
    on the other hand our heroes play space rock that the discerning mind can appreciate and reflect upon, even travel by thought, they are a karmically clean healthy ever fresh meal that the spirit can relish and revisit anew with each play.

    Uh, Peel really liked some terrible shit no one could listen to.

    If you want to know what the church was like early on, and I wasn’t an early fan, but imagine the albums of the 80s, all lined up. Rainy day, no working that day, just headphones and the albums, with time to draw, and sort things out and work on things–creative time, personal time, listening time.

    You just drop in the sides randomly and listen to those olde church albums. While Remote Luxury was not a proper album, you could drop that in and listen to it whole. To preserve my vinyl, I made hissy tapes. To upgrade, I did the Compact Discs. Ugh. Back to vinyl. To get the rare tracks, I bought the Hindsight double cassette as an import at Garage D’or in South Minneapolis–and the clerk thought he was funny by leaving it out of the sack as I was leaving! I’ll never forget buying the cassette, a treasure, and some forgotten vinyl, and there it was! On the counter. Whoops, I suppose. No cassette for you clerky boy. An awkward grin, and I took my treasure. A fucking treasure Hindsight was, no fucking bones about it. Even a tone at the beginning of each tape–like a right proper weird import. Double J card in full color, mini-printing.

    Imagine hours and hours spent with such treasure before there was even a GAF or a P=A.

    It was right proper fucking heaven, and I went back to Garage D’or many times, trying to find more.

    Sadly, there was but the one Hindsight, and everything since then has been compact disced and no hissy and good, yes. Fantastic, yes. But nothing replaces the magic of finding such things.

    Nothing.

    coldplay is suck.

    Kilbey, Martin is no.

    SK, please do “ricochet” live sometime. Or, even better, play Snowfaller!

    If you had taken the best half of BWTB and the best half of ULTC and made 1 incredible 14 track masterpiece out of it, Coldplay would be opening for you old dudes right now. Maybe not but I think you would certainly have your own serius sattlelight radio station all church 24-7. Your choices would be Led Zeppelin, Bruce Springsteen, The CHurch, and U2.

    Except yer next album would be all fluff just to cash in even more! Doing IPOD commercials and then starring in some 2nd rate family sit com. So, nevermind. Keep being the struggling music guy because thats when you put out the best music! Im sure you still got milky way money! You doin alright. Dont you get like a quarter every time that song gets played?
