i am non-plussed
i am feeling neutral
neither happy nor sad
sobering up to the long hard gruelling tour ahead o me
the long long miles
the heat n grime
the short hours of sleep
the 3 am stops in garages buying crisps n juice
phone interviews with distant voices
going thru the m’oceans
how was sanna barbra, sk?
how was yer gig?
it was ok
it was all ok
ok?
ok such a lovely phrase
a world of meaning in ok
saying everything n nothing at the same time
santy bra bra is a lovely town
seriously gorgeous in its summery blossoms and village-y atmosphere
people are doing well there
everyones relaxed
(mellow as they would say themselves)
anyway
thanks to the people who helped out
they know who they are
i also forgot to tell ya we gotta harpist playing with us in socal
patti hood who is brilliant
youve always wanted to hear the hchcur with a harp
hears your chance
thanks to deniece for prints n gifts
paulie v whos got more footage of us up his sleeve than ya can beleeve
hours n ours n hours
we gonna try to putta little video on here for y’all
(maybe)
(if my lappy is up to the gig)
the audience was very nice
we played 2 on-cores
it was hard to breakthrough…
breakthrough to what, nevets
what are you breaking thru to, olde bean
sigh
i dunno
whatever it is/was we didnae do it last nite
but i aint complaining
ive been up early swimmin’ in the lovely roof pool
fountains spitting water
cool arbours n shady nooks
i did my chi gong
my lungs trying to sort the smog from the chi
the prana from the fumes
sometimes i just going thru motions
sometimes i connect
but once youve connected, nevets
once youve reached that audience
or that satori
or that deeep place
well you cant stand it if it aint like that
all the time,everytime
so there ya go
sports fans
kilbey kicked a few goals
hes in ok form
maybe shed a few pounds and dollars
maybe pace himself more
(a guy came on stage with about 15 jagermeistahs lassa nite)
maybe he should train consistently
and try harder
so
la tonite
i gotta feeling she aint gonna take me in her arms
i gotta feeling hollywood aint returning my calls
its ok
gotta let it go
breathe deep nevets
see your california dream fly away…
just like the red balloon from th’other day
let it disappear up in the clouds
who are,
after all
uninvited,
just like you

kilbey
ps peter pogcast
where am i now?
can i bee back in personal?
please
getta me backa onna mah charte

    wish i could’ve been there
    last night
    (you’ll be tired of
    hearing me say that
    soon)
    know it was
    beautiful
    even if you
    didn’t break through
    as you say
    you’ve got to be
    jetlagged still sk
    it’d probably take me
    a weeek and then some
    not to mention the
    mean pace you’re
    keeping
    soooo
    take a deep breath
    and give yourself
    a chance to
    catch your breath
    and be nice to
    yourself
    pick up a
    vanilla soy latte
    or something
    if i could bring
    you one myself
    i would

    love
    your devoted
    wheat toast
    with apricot preserves

    Night divides the day …

    That would be the only song I have every requested off a radio dj (sorry, not crhuch, even I loves you all dearly)
    and I was 14, and the dj called me kid which irked me terribly. Doesn’t he know I am older than the star we now circle.

    Queen Hatshepsut | 19 July 2006 at 9:07 pm #

    Steve,
    Never thought I’d say this, but I think I know what you mean about last night….kinda sensed the ‘ok’ feeling you had. Ok, it was OK.

    However, from my obviously biased perspective, I thought you looked fabulous, tanned, healthy, and your voice was as sweet as any angel in heaven. Your stories are so funny! Providence brought me to tears…there are so many things that are so obviously bloody unfair in this world…how you and the boys can be so insanely talented – how does the whole world not know this? I heard R say to MWP that he never quite got you guys back to sound-check quality but again, I thought you rocked, you rolled, you *did* connect…although the audience seemed a bit blah til the end. But I sat in the crowd and people were ooohing and ahhhing and so excited. You may know, you may never be able to know the amount of happiness and joy you’ve brought thousands of people around this globe. No small feat.

    MWP – How many times have I seen him on the geeetar; he never, ever, ever ceases to amaze me. Brilliance. Doin’ things with the guitar I could’ve sworn were illegal. MWP has the energy it seems of 1000 men. His charm is notorious – watch out peeps, you can’t avoid it. Quick wit, smart as whip…I don’t know anything about the guitar (exept I know what I like) but I think he’s one of the best players in the world. : )

    SK – Pure bliss. The gorgeous low rumble of the bass, a voice like silk, velvet, words to make a grown man weep. You are still so beautiful, inside and out. I see though, how much you give on stage – and I know now why you just want to be alone afterwards…everyone seems to want a bit of SK…I’m 13 years younger and I don’t know how you do this. I’m exhausted today and I did NOTHING compared to you. Thank you for all you do for us.

    PK – Mellow PK. So smart, so calm, so funny. I don’t think he’s ever sounded better on A New Season. Witty on stage, so calm off. I envy his calm. Really bright guy too. These guys could start their own Mensa club.

    TP – Funny, multi-talented – a sheer delight to watch him play…nice, smart, articulate. What a joy it must’ve been to have found Tim. A little poem there for Tim.

    My brother said it best: All four are distinct individuals and yet on stage – brilliance, a great symbiotic relationship grows. The wit, the the banter, the music…the liquor, haha.

    And Patti or Patty? She’s like an ethereal goddess from above on the harp. No words to describe how lovely her contribution is. It’s a real treat to see her play w/the guys.

    Not gonna do a set list – no good at that. You won’t be disappointed. Lots of Jager goin’ round on stage…hahaha. You’ve started something SK…it’s ok…it’s herbal.

    Adjectives seem hopeless to describe the beauty of seeing/hearing these guys. Smart, witty, insanely talented – they seem so lacking…again, I want to shake my fists at the gods and say “WHY???” WHY ISN’T THE ENTIRE WORLD WAKING UP TO THIS TALENT????? We’re the lucky ones. It still makes me mad though.

    Last but not least – the merch table is a Church lover’s PARADISE!!!!!!! There’s SOOOOO much great stuff there….CD’s galore…the T-shirts are very, very cool…lots of SK poetry, books, and may I say, I could not count the # of people BLOWN AWAY by SK’s art. Please stop by and see the art….buy a print or some cards…or a few prints and a few cards…these are rare images of sublime beauty…you’ll want to frame them and keep them forever. I can’t believe how prolific you are Sk. I bought last night, I’m going to Hollywood tonight, I’m buying more.

    I hope Steve you’re wrong and that Hollywood embraces you. I can’t imagine how they wouldn’t. I wish you all the peace, sleep and joy you can get out of the tour – again, I look at all the dates and I’m overwhelmed…night after night…

    be kind to *our* SK – he gives us everything – I say let’s give him the gift of solitude after the show. ; )

    love you steve,
    denise

    Denise – thanks for the words from a fiends perspective. Someitmes SK is too close to it all to really understand how much they mean to us. The ways in which they touch us like no others can.
    I’m struggling about Syd tonight. To be close to THE band & THE SKmanhimself thorugh the blog makes things less awful.
    Love you more,

    Hi SK,

    had just finished commenting on the last blog when i saw this new entry. Sorry to hear you felt you didn’t really soar as you would have liked, but somehow im sure most of the fiends felt differently… Queen Hatshepsut pretty much sums you guys up to a tea. I’m lucky enough to have seen the Church on an almost yearly basis for the last several years, and i have to say… even a less than par performance from you gentlemen is a special experience.

    Godspeed Steve, keep grinding it out.

    Hey Steve, sorry I can’t be in Cali for the gigs, but will be here for you in the Midwest. I’m in a band and I know what it’s like. You can’t be 100% every night, even though you want to. But often, even when you think you’ve had an “ok” gig, the audience may have felt differently. Every night has its vibe. Roll with it. Enjoying the tour blogge. Best to you and the band.

    Mr. K – Hollywood’s one of those places that seem empty and soulless to the casual traveler. Ah, but it ain’t necessarily so. Rest assured, those that will be in attendance tonite (no matter the #) are there to see and experience the Church. How nice not to drag ourselves to Dan Aykroyd’s joint once again, because of course when I think of the “blues”, I think of the Church. I think of Nicky Drake struggling over the banter of the Fairport Conventioneers, Judee Sill fading out in narcotic clouds of obscurity, or the countless others we’ll never hear or know. Yet here you are. In Tinseltown no less. So, here’s to the enduring, almighty Church. Tonight may never happen again.

    having been a recipient of yr musical magick its kinda strange to hear about your moments of doubts, i wish there was something i could do to reassure you that the church absolutly ‘raise the bar’ when it comes to preforming, but you have extreemly high standards it seems like sometimes you disappoint yourself.

    I recall something MWP said to me, and it was almost like a conformation of something that i felt but never really articulated, he said that, ‘the band have to stay true to the muse, honour it.’
    Now i can’t say there are many musicians i know that do that as consistantly and conciously as you guys, and thats why from a recieving end being transported away by the church is such a special and remarkable occurence. i guess what i’m trying to say is, just play the music and the rest will take care of itself. it’s not the formula to fame and wealth maybe, but i guess it’s the road to some form of personal divinity and those that resonate with your muse are going to experience it to.

    very excited about the possibility of some film.

But I can understand how the thought of playing night after night for over a month, and being away from the family could mess with your mind. Try and stay positive sk, we’re all thinking of you, even from as far away as oz.

    Anyone out there who was at the show able to recite the set-list (or as much as you can remember)? I’m keen to know what tunes from ULTC will be given a bit of air on this tour.

    SK, Can’t wait til you guys get back home for the Oz tour later in the year. You could play Block over and over for 90 minutes and that would satisfy me. Throw in Hotel Womb, The Disillusionist and Life Speeds Up as encores and I reckon I might have to bring a spare pair of undies.

    (comment for previous blog) Stay on Obscured by Clouds eh, yeah, that’s a good one. Rick Wright’s voice, like how close is the mic. The vocal tone that guy’s got, beautiful and velvety and quiet I suspect. Pink Floyd were getting all perfectionist in those days, but if you listen close enough, you hear Wright or maybe sometimes it’s Gilmour, but I think it’s Wright mostly, at the start of every line he sings, you can hear this kinda ‘pmmpmmkt’ sound… ‘Pmmkllmpt Stay and help me to end the day…’ or ‘mqulippm Ancient bonds are breaking moving on and changing sides…’ yeahhhh it’s goooood.. c’mon Steve, Marty, Tim & Pete head for the hills, they say there’s gold (there was in 1849!) but you’re lookin for stimulation of a more erudite nature la la la this blog’s goin to numero uno dark side of the moono come and play in Melbourne soono, one day I’m gonna leave my name…..peace out

    What can I say, that hasn’t already been so eloquently expressed?

    I will say however, that on Monday,
    I sensed that you were very preoccupied (with the upcoming show no doubt)
    Which I believe put you in that ‘funk’ long before you got to the gig on Tuesday.

    Perhaps you’re thinking a bit too much,
    putting unnecessary pressure on your self
    and setting expectations that are actually impeding that which you wish to attain.

    You need to maintain that same mindlessness that you achieve during Qi gong,
    let the energy flow through you,
    close your eyes and really feel the music and lyrics, enjoy and connect with YOURSELF!
    don’t be so concerned with whether the audience is getting ‘it’
    Most of them do, and that’s why they’re there.
    And for those who don’t, f@#% em!!!

    Please take it from me, the absolute Queen of negative thinking,
    the mindset and attitude with which you enter a situation
    will greatly determine your experience (I should know!)

    AND STAY AWAY FROM THE F@#%ING ALCOHOL!!!

    Great show last night at the Music Box, with the exception of the constant talking. Honestly, why pay 30 bucks to see a show and then talk all the way through it? Reasoning defies me.

    Couple of observations.

    SK looks great! And sounds great! Vocal stylings far more mellifluous, I guess, than I remember.

    The band did break through, if I have any understanding of that, and it happened a few times–Metropolis and most unlikely, for me, Two Places at Once. After that it seemed like a more relaxed show. Or maybe it was my booze level finally bridged the gap.

    Anyway, great show–look forward to SF, where sadly I’m sure there will be just as many talkers, although GAMH may be a bit less conducive to that.

    BTW, anyone notice that Rob Dickinson doesn’t appear to have aged at all? Saw the Wishville shows some years ago and he looks essentially no different.

    Hiya Man!
    Can’t get pooped yet, we need ya over yonder. So, Patty the harpist too? Is that cool or what? Will she be sticking around for the rest of the dates? That would be a treat to hear actually. The harp she plays is none other than the one Harpo Marx played before, correct?
    Well, here’s hoping you enjoy yourself on this state side adventure. Please remember not all Americans are twats. At least most of us reading your blogge are not, and that is a start. Hey, jager is good and all, but just drink some water too 😉 Helps me out anyway. Especially in Arizona, yer gonna need it.
    Take care of yourself, friend. We love ya, we need ya. Screw anyone who doesn’t know about the greatest groop of REAL rockers, and if they are not into this acoustic thing (‘cos they wanna hear The Church circa 1988), definitely screw them too. We gonna love anything you give us, man.
    Mucho love and support…
    Ben V.

    Thank You Thank You Thank You – for coming to Santa Barbara, for making it one of the best gigs I have ever experienced, for connecting on a far deeper level than you realize. As you can tell by the walking neck that sent the Jaggers, these treats are few and far between in Santa Barberror…

    It’s ever so difficult to be under a warm sun with tepid water feeling middle-everything when you know there’s a harp which plays one million loveable songs just behind that huge wave…
    I claim for serenity. I fight for it. But whenever I’m serene, whenever the tide is taking me without many accidents or efforts, ups and downs…I miss the brilliance and the struggle. We want it whatever it is at the peak.
    But there’s a feeling of charming contentment in the serene afternoon. As if life wasn’t committing to something big, but to something comfortable. Moderate happiness. There’s a refined mystery in it.
    I feel like this just now.
    Holding dreams of guitars far away eyes.
    Memories of other unvisited tours.
    Stepping to the lobby at a silent black dress. Unearthing you.
    “It’s us, it’s us. Not an external factor”.
    Good lock with it all, diairist.

    I suspect you are gonna be seriously hating life by the time you get to my area, but I’m really looking forward to seeing you and hearing the songs, so I do appreciate all your effort. And I’m really excited about the format too, as I have already seen several full on electric shows.

    Your blog is always #1 in my book, Steve dear, no matter what any ranking says.

    The ghosts of the children are outside in the courtyard, we can all hear them laughing and hollering, but we can’t see them!
