the go bes come on second
cmon grant….its a robert track…you can do better than that
yessaday you came up with even as we speak n something
off in your bright ray
now we have that amazing singer
the australian woman from dead can dance
liza gerrard?
lisa gerrard?
she sings like a wailing sybil prophetess
in a language of her own
pure genius
this track offa italian compilation
an italian guy gave me
is just her n a string machine
im sure i written bout it before
astounding stuff…
now comes another one my ipod likes to throw up
the auteurs who are ok
the english press made a big fuss over them
i can remember (jealously) from the past
when silly things like that mattered to me
or whoever thought they were me
before i
the real me turned up
the house of love are next
who i dont mind
tho i understand the “similarities’ between
the church and these guys
but i think its circumstantial
and by priest = aura all similarity
with this innocous stuff was gone
i mean
i wanted more than these sometimes lukewarm numbers
cant see the name of the track from ‘ere
and it aint worth bovvering standing up for
next ah ha
yes this is good
the king of nails
remote control will come in handy for this
its good but its not making me listen to it so
goodbye goodstuff
bob dylan doing
when the night comes falling from the sky
i reckon when the knight comes falling from the sky is better
this song is hopeless
sang in a silly voice n all
bobby your best is the best
but your worst is the….pits
cos we know what it coulda been
ride like a daydream
like the byrds with more ambient guitar cushioning
love this ride
but hated it when you could actually hear the awkward stuff
they were singing
saw straitjacket fits blowem offstage in my opinion
in sydney in 1991
still its fresh n vibrant
like my brand of killers herbal toothpaste
coming to merch stalls near you
ride finishes n the next thing could be anything
i give up
silver apples
those apples spoilt the whole bunch
david bowie
lovely song
what does this mean tho…?
taking it all the right way
keeping it in the back
and whole loada ridiculous
(i realise now)
soulisms like gimme gimme
sho nuff
get down
jonesy was discovering his inner funkyman
and we stood for this bollocks…?
ohh lawdy momma….!
transit by biosphere
dark heartbeat in virtual street
things gently clang in the mist
but something nasty is in there
amon duul 11 from wolf city
crazy krautrock hippy dribble
tablas sitars
things going sweeesh
mellow tron
still sounds like something id have liked to have done
good on ya amon!
se a cabo
what does that mean you spanish types?
santana from abraxas
nostalgia it reminds me of being 16
some exciting stuff here
1st latin rock fusion
my dad said
its just bloody rock music with some geezer playing bongos
ha ha dad
funny how those things stick with ya..
gee im enjoying this
my foots tapping
its infectious
and its suddenly over
in comes slowly
who are simply the creme de la creme of instrumental music
recommend everything
sad euro hemi-themes
drifting in ether
music for rainy afternoons
and aching nights
do yerselves a favour
if melancholy beautiful music is yer thing
check out yellow6
the walker bros singing wheres the girl
is this guy the best male singer of all time or what?
tho i loathe his last album im sorry to say
ah in comes george harrison
beware of darkness from beware of abkco
a boot of georges demos
ya know i LOVE george dont ya
his modesty
his lovely voice
his good looks
his innovation
his lovely melodies
n words that were just right
fuck i miss ya george
you were a saint!
right up my alley
but dont wanna write about em
but theyre really good…
ah lovely stuff
you should be listening to this
glittery marshmellow liquidic little number
cant hear the words n its better that way im sure…
it explodes in a white lighty climax
and sinks back into its gentle self
amen shoo geezers
brett smiley
what the fuck is this bullshit?
lisping coquettish mincing with orchestral swirling
loadsa words coming at ya
its ….interesting
there comes a time in every spaceboys life
sings brett
all mars n guitars n stars n spaceface love
hot sex n chariot choogle droogie
a moonage wetdream
oh i really like this
trojan blue by icehouse
the juxtaposition of a condom brand name
n the the perishing world of troy
youd like this one
the finest treasures of kings
all those precious things
they never tempted you
how could you bear to look on
as they burnt for you?
oh theyre good lyrics i reckon
and full points for any greek references…
the verve
neon wilderness
boy he lost his judgement
trying to turn into neil diamond before our eyes
whod a thunk it
this still in good days i guess
then its dire straits
and some boogie woogie bollocks
yeah yeah
the sultanas of schwing mark 7
some straits i like
but this straits is strickly for the “straights”
i have time for one more of this foolhardy execise
so it will be oozing significance
for all of us
and it is
grant mclennan
do you see the lights
i swear on the life of my children
that is the track which came up
and fact is stranger than fiction
howcome im not surprised?
and its got timbo playing drums
oh i gotta hang in for one more now
see if theres anymore to this
ok shuffle
give us
david bowie
doing black country rock
in which he imitates marc bolan
complete with bolan bleat n guitar figure
there is significance here
im sure

    As ever, an interesting walk through your iPod, Steve. I was surprised to read you had an Icehouse track there. I would have thought that Icehouse were the antithesis of what you stood for. My favourite Icehouse track is Don’t Believe Anymore from their 1984 album, Sidewalk. It features a ripping sax solo by Joe Camilleri. Do you know the song?

    On an unseasonably warm Tuesday evening in April 1906, the Grand Opera House in the heart of San Francisco swelled with the voice of Enrico Caruso. The legendary tenor was performing Don Jose in Carmen with the Conried Metropolitan Opera Company of New York, which was on a nationwide tour.

    After the performance ended, the finely dressed fans headed home. Just hours later, the roof of the Grand Opera House would collapse. Shortly after 5 a.m. on April 18, a 7.8-magnitude quake, unleashed offshore, shook the city for just less than a minute.

    Later, Caruso would be found collapsed on the ground and weeping in fear among a crowd of shocked survivors in a downtown square. He vowed never to come back to San Francisco — and he never did.

    So, I guess it is not over til the fat opera star sings and shakes.

    ‘Do You See The Lights?’ is a fine, fine song. A resident of many comps I’ve put together.

    Dear God.. No where are talking!!

    David Jones… *****

    But Iva Davies…….U ripper.

    In my opinion the best voice and creative genius in the biz.

    Iva the Oboe player from the sydnee beaches… Sk you never seem to stop amazing me.. Trojan & goodnight Mr Matthews are some of the best stuff ever written.

    Was just talking to D the other day and saying who would I like to have dinner with the most..

    Morton Harket (a-ha) yes’ they are going gangbusters, 4 alby’s in the 00’s already.
    The Boss.
    James dean bradfield MSP

    Sk no!! why caus I will prob have dinner with em some stage anyway.

    Bowie.. Hmmm yeah! but how long would he stay for??

    Morton H.. Yes but I might end up fighting with D over him..Just Kiddin He’s a gd looking fulla though.

    JDB.. d- would molest him.

    The boss… close tie..But Iva would top the list.

    Why caus I meet Iva in Wellington 1994 just after Code Blue’ great aussie history lesson. He gave me tickets to three sold out shows, Infact Icehouse still to this day had the biggest numbers to any tour in NZ history playing to 300,000 people in 15 cities.. go figure.

    And he was just the bee’s knees… He had an aura that really blue me away. and what a songwriter…

    For anyone who wants a try… listen to The kingdom, man of colours 1988…and the berlin tapes 2002

    Nuff said

    my top top 5 MOST played songs are:

    1far from home neil young
    great blues rock great horns

    2old blue chair kenny chesney

    from his Robert Johnson covers album one great organ solo

    4Just remember I love you Firefall
    I know, cheesy 70’s schlok but one of wife’s favorites

    5April Fool Chalk Circle
    80’s canadian alt rock.

    Jack Johnson
    Shooter Jennings (Waylon’s boy)
    Sabbath w/ dio
    and Blue Rodeo

    rounding out my top ten most played

    I enjoyed that sk, but why don’t you delete all those songs you loathe and leave that ff button alone!! You mention Icehouse, it brings back memories of having to watch them live (no, I hated the way Iva Davies played that guitar!) because you played so many gigs together back in the 80’s!! Come to think of it, it was TORTURE back then having to listen and watch all those crap support bands (esp The Screaming Tribesmen eeeeech) The Church had back in the 80’s before you hit the stage, but once The Church did come on….the horrible pain was no more!!!
    Have a great day.

    That was a fun excursion Steve. Brought me a smile. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Tim at 10:30am — where are you? ULTC is available on iTunes. Well, in the US anyway — maybe not other places.

    But if it’s not on there where you are ULTC is worth the extra work of ordering somewhere else (Church Merch is good — the band gets more of the money) and ripping the cd to your computer when it arrives.

    My choices may not be trendy or new, but here they are. The Church, Jeff Beck, Moby, Morrissey, The Pretenders, Paul McCartney and Tangerine Dream. Note to SK: All the aforementioned could play on World Vegetarian Day to raise money for animal welfare organizations. I would have loved to have attended the relatively recent Pretenders and Church tour !

    cool. most definitely my thing.

    icehouse had one big album in canada when i was 15. man of colours? electric blue and crazy were big singles, but the whole album was really nice. will be looking for more of this.

    tim – cool that you mention chalk circle. i had the mending wall tape back then, wore it out. that was a great album. been looking for a cd of it ever since. do they have a lot more stuff? still around?

    You know, I kid you not, about two weeks ago,
    I picked up Icehouse’s self titled album, on vinyl.
    ยข99! I already own Trojan Blue.

    I tend to treat my vinyl like it’s gold from Fort Knox.
    Buy it. Check it out. NEVER , ever play it.

    If you knew how many I’ve bought and never
    listened to, you’ve faint.

    One of these days I’ll convert them to CD.

    Oh how I love
    No illegal downloading for me. You all need to get paid.

    make sure you look at me
    loki like we use to be
    was it all over or was it like it
    was ever meant to be?

    the end is not new like the ram
    a candy-star cain who came all over
    the race in last place on my face just in case
    but i’m not blue just like you

    are or was it a star,star light star white
    red and who was it that said i forget what i read,
    i won’t go to bed, it will end, but not tonight
    unless that was how it was planned to be

    now? here? there? is there a difference? could you tell between living and dead? fare enought, but i’ve forgot, i can’t tell anymore, and maybe that’s a good sighn, or maybe its just what it is

    the last word, the last world forgoten on the tip
    of the last word of the last sentance of the last
    sentiment that he, she, or it may be writing,
    may be is the key the

    identity we he, she or ? all might
    be looking for, then again, who knows
    he, she, or it wonders, as if it wasn’t said before
    or again or anothertime, yes…

    no.. its a joke a toke past midnight, past midernight and this bloke don’t even smoke, but still soaks in his, her its bad chorus and rhyme
    another time, why say more… is that four lines?

    read without writing, write without wanting, without warning, without wonder or reason,
    but… what? without what? forget it…. count me

    Well well – you’ve hit upon some nuggets there for sure.

    If you like Lisa Gerrard’s voice you gotta check out the last track on DCD’s “Toward the Within” – it’s a Perry track called ‘Don’t Fade Away’, performed live mind you – and that haunting voice has never faded away from my memory (interestingly that album also has ‘Song of the Sybil’ and ‘Persian Love Song’)

    malcolm arkey | 11 May 2007 at 5:54 am #

    Oh and another thing…

    So you like Slowdive, eh ?

    Yep – I’ve got all their stuff, which isn’t much, including their later band, Mojave 3 (which is is a try-hard western type letdown)

    IMHO – Slowdive made the best STONED listening music of all time.

    There was something very special with Eno’s production and buggering about in the studio and turning up the reverb way too high on every track. There are some albums where Eno’s production concepts don’t work – but this ain’t one of them. Brian Eno + Slowdive = heaven.

  26. avatar
    malcolm arkey | 11 May 2007 at 6:01 am #

    Oh yeah, baby…one more thing.

    I reckon “Trojan Blue” was a bit of an influence on the Church, no ? …AFAIK that song was the first Australian rock song to be about classical Greek times – beating even our own SK to the punchline ! Reckon MWP also cocked his ear to the plucked riff in that one.

    1982 – what a year !
    ‘Blurred Crusade’ released.
    ‘Avalon’ released.
    ‘Primitive Man’ released.
    (plus we should not forget the music in Bladerunner also that year I recall.)

    that’s enough, now.

Laughed at what your dad said about Santana, such a dad comment ๐Ÿ™‚ Moonflower takes me back, with a huge thump, and a bruised heart. Had a listen to Yellow6, love Piano Song, a pity rainy days are far and few. Walkers vocals, yes. I’ll raise you an Orbison too. Wasnt a big fan of Icehouse but a dear friend worked with Iva and loved him so he must be a good bloke. Bowie so cool in the day & Ronson was “the” man – their best work though — Lou Reeds Transformer ๐Ÿ™‚


    ps the only shuffle i have is the one when I first get up in the morning

    agree with comment waaay up above.
    ‘do you see the lights’

    house of love is house of love.
    church is church.
    my ipod threw out the following
    in the car on the way to work, to-day:
    “north, south, east, west”
    (i hate L.A.)
    “hotel womb”
    back to back to back.
    thanks SK for the music

    I can’t read the name Slowdive without thinking of what Nicky Wire said about them.

    hahahaha~~that should have been “misplaced my DECK”. amazing how one letter slip can make a phrase take on a whole new (and incorrect) meaning.

    well, i’m at work, so i guess that’s why the fruedian slip of “deSk” in place of “deCk”. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ariel I take offense to this comment:
    “visconti said bowie did a deliberate impression of bolan on black country rock – for a laugh and they kept it in.
    worst crime on that album is the fuckin mix on ronson – as usual, bowie and visconti have him at pee-wee levels. wankers both.”

    they are not wankers, and I know, beacuse I know them.
    True gentlemen both.

    I don’t know yellow6, but will be sure to investigate.
    Father-in-Law asked this evening who the new framed prints were by. Wifey told him they were by you, SK. Father-in-Law said that our house was a “bloody shrine to that bloody band”. Tee hee.

    SK, thanks for the trip down metaphysical iPod shuffle lane. I love putting my iPod on shuffle when I drive, and most recently had Pure Chance, and Sanskrit pop up back to back. For walking or working out, I have to devise meticulous little playlists.

    LOL @ DaveM! Your father-in-law sounds like my folks, but with slightly different words and in reference to a different band… Good that you married a fellow fan. ๐Ÿ™‚
