theres a bitto capitilised excitement
as a opening shot across your cyber bow
so wake yaselves uppe
whats yer name?
whats yer number?
how do you fit in as a cog in this nasssty little mechanism?
are ya fightin’ for the goode guise
or are ya on the side of vevil
are ya strikin’ a blow for the empire of the bohemians
or a ya one of those nassssty “straights”
cos if ya answer yes to any of those questions
then consult ya family g fuckin p
and tell him that sk referred ya

talking of olde sk
(and who, really, isnt, darlingss?)
aint it time that the killah chose his goode
and badde awards for 2005?
and yes, come to think of it
which i do
i mean
good lord , sk, ya not gonna stoop to such a populist device
as a freakin’ awards list?
nope, my friends
but just maybe a casual mention here and there
of those deserving of my humble admiration
and those whom have earned my bitterest scorn loathing diatribe harangue
and not just the ob-vee-us ones, baybee
but those behind the scenes heroes and heroines
who make this olde rockers existence more sublime
for example to mention 2
miss a p from melbourne
a choich fan for 22 years
thick black hair
i gotta touch it, i cant believe it aint a wiggy!
she pops up all over the wurld to see us rock our stuff
and a very nice human bein’ as well
she gives me a cd
which is a track i did with mr gb
who is a musical ledge in my mind
1st time i hear track
very very tasty
nice one gb
i really do love yr werk
you are quite unique in aussie rock swamp
and the badde people, sk?
the ones who really got yer goat, you ascerbic olde cynick
the ones who chatted thru yer gigs like pigs?
the rude baggage handlers who hurt yer basse case?
the mechanoid drongoes in offices everywhere who never heard of ya band?
the people who dont buy yer records?
the parking inspectors who towed yer rolls royce
and clamped yer ferrari?
the guy at the post office who was busy with another customer
and made ya wait?
that guy on
who said he liked tha olde stuff much bettah?
that guy who trod on yer toes at the rydalmere family inn in 1981?
the guy who punched you in front of some girls at a bus stop in civic
in 19 fuckin’72?
are we getting close sk?
who deserves ole sks roth more than any of these blackguards?
well i gottan answer for ya, my little starrlings
yes indeed
and the worst ratbag of all has been….
it was me

    Hahahaha! Excellent! …I shouldn’t ask about the runners up, should I?

    But I also agree with Dave…those who blabber throughout the shows deserve to burn, rot and be eviscerated alive over and over in Hell for eternity. AARRRGGGHHH!

    But anonymity is good.
    It can be preferable to sabotage your id than have one.
    Not when you need to get paid though.
    Ah modern life is complicated, can’t just walk around picking cherries and gazing at the stars.
    Lament, lament.

    Steve, dearest steve, you know I love you to death, but please, if you must, seriously can you maybe not refer to yourself as sk? Somehow you referring to yourself in that fashion doesn’t quite jibe. I shoudl say, most appropriately I find it unbecoming. But don’t just stop suddenly it will make me feel self conscious. Just consider it and maybe stop whenever you think it hold some merit as a valid criticism. Until then, make yourself a dish of this yummy tofu it’s delicious.

    Could just be the old ego speaking you know, they have a habit of this kind of sabotage, nothing that a good dose of surfing can’t fix, all ya need is handfin, flippers and waves. The rest is easy.
    We Love Ya SK.

    No phuckers talked at that gig at Le Botanique in Brussels. Beautiful.

    We found a room full of goths underneath later.. watched pvc twirling into the night and later sat on hte hotel roof.

    Discovered blog today. Liking it.

    But, I would, wouldn’t I?

    Nunca he ententido porque gente que paga para ver un concierto insisten en hablar durante el entero show. La populacion general se vuelto más y más grosera e ignorante. Francamente no se como solucionar este dilema.
    Abrazos, Esteban!

    well sk… you already listed quite some people back in 1996… remember “welcome”? my understanding was, those were people that pissed you off… perhaps it’s time for you to write “welcome 2006″….
    love from Italy,

    Hi there! While out blog surfing today for specific info on floam, I ended up on your page. Your site shows that I ended up a little off base, but I am certainly glad I stopped by. I will bookmark your site for a future visit, and should you ever need it, there is plenty of information on this site about floam.
