he syringes my ear
and i jump twenty feet in the air
as a horrible mixture of pus olive oil and garlic comes out

youre sorry he says
i gotta stay in here all day with this garlic smell
he looks in my ear again
lucky you came to see me he says
or you woulda lost yer eardrum by tonight…

how can things go wrong so fast?
you should see an ear specialist says quack
but take these antibioticks and lets see ya on monday

oh oh the mofo hurts
oh deep deep pain
much worse than a broken arm
i mean theres pain ya can deal with
and theres pain that fuckin’ drives you up the wall
this earache…..
my lovely wife up and running round in the middle of night
all worried about me
i’m all at sea
moaning and carrying on
come home from the docs
he says to take a shower
wash the ear out again
then take penicillin and eardrops and my painkillers
so i take off my clothes
getting ready for shower
nk appears
anything else the doctor says i can do for you
yeah yeah
i say
he says you gotta help me relieve the pressure
what pressure she says
all the pressure building up here i say
and i point
but not at my ear
hmmmm she says

    googey boo? I done a naughty little 2 on da floor of da Lodge in Canberra, Where SK did a revivalist tour of the South Wing.

    I dont know why I am Here, can u please tell me Mr. Moonlight or Maybe Richard Ploog Planted me in his garden of eden and i brought forth the fruits of life minus the middle ear infection that SK contracted whilst being the Time being.

    Why does my head hurt, when i tap it gently for hours against these big iron bars.

    I am mentally and physically attracted to molluscs. I saw a documentary on their mating habits and it blew my mind.

    Can I please eat some tuscany rice its very nice, Yummy Yummy yummy I got Rice in my tummy and its good enough for the third world!!!!

    Oggy Woogy Poo! Me so silly Me so puffy me go in my balloon with Mrs Blanchart and her hubby-oh what a tragic end to her life. Her balloon with fireworks attached went up in flames cause she brushed a tree and it moved the firecracker attached to point at her frazzled expressiveness.

    Me done my job on da carpet and me granny ma picked it up with her scooper dooper!

    Stevey Kilbey and Stevie wright are gonna put out a new album called Evie and the Magestic Fantastics dance the night away at the holiday inn. Killer is a bass player for the stars.

    Eat my dinny din din! and i am a big boy now minus the washing behind the ears

    ” bye bye my little urchins oh my how u have grown halfling. You are wise and cruel. Worm Killed your chief poor little fellow, Your nice little boss, Didnt u Worm, stabbed him in his sleep, i believe. Buried him i hope; though Worm has been very hungry lately “

    Was that supposed to be funny malaka @ 1:18pm? (that means “wanker” in Greek btw)

    Anyway, sk, I can symapathise with you, I get ear infections EVERY year (don’t know why) and the only thing to rid it is the good ol’ antibiotics (just make sure you take ALL of them as the quack would have told you). But what made you believe garlic and olive oil would help??? Was it a Greek website haha, just come and hang out in Lonsdale st Melby, you’d fit right in haha!!!
    Get well soon (well you BETTER before the the 16th dec…whatever it takes to relieve that pressure!!)

    If today’s blog is true I certainly wish the best for Sk’s priceless ear. Don’t listen to AC/DC because that would ensure both ear and brain damage. The first Gilt Trip CD could be a musical balm.

    Music Note:

    Jeff Beck Concert Reviews:

    London Times 4 Stars
    The Guradian 4 Stars
    The Evening Standard 5 Stars
    The Evening Standard’s Jazz Critic gave it O stars because JB sounded too much like Hendrix?????? Fuck u jazz critic!

    That’s it from me The Time Being’s only member of Jeff Beck’s lonely hearts club band.

    When anybody does review The Church I have only read very good reviews mostly in reference to their CDs. It’s inarguable and irrefutable if the critic’s have any semblance of taste and decency. Ouch!! My cat’s craving meat. He just bit my leg and the blood is trickling out. Pets bring us so much unconditional love. Right, Right, I’m bloody well right.

    well, i hope you found a respite,
    that pain IS fucking ‘orrible…
    had my left ear basically explode from trapped water back in a summer of my yoof… deaf in that ear for 6 months, now fine, knock on wood!
    ah, but you did that already…
    anyhow, all my time surfing has alerted me to a few of the pitfalls of saltwater exposure, namely the bony growths (Mr. Humphries, i presume) that can close up your ear canal right tight… did the quack say anything ’bout that?
    i recommend a Dremel tool in that case…

    godspeed dude, and careful with the headphones…

    Maybe .. a bad case of swimmers ear??

    Whatever ’tis, hope it clears up soon 🙂 The garlic & oil thing was pretty funny though .. maybe next time soak a cotton wool ball in the same concotion and pop that into your ear 😉

    Good luck!

    daniel12 | 30 November 2007 at 7:44 am #

    Yes ,I’d say it’s a bad case of swimmers ear too.
    I had what sounds like the same thing about three years ago.
    I was given a thingy of oily cack to put in my ear but it didn’t seem to help. Felt n sounded awfull going in too.
    Swimming in the ocean’s too good to quit but i’m more carefull now.
    Never swim in Sydney up to two days after rain without that silicon earplug stuff.
    Earcandles are really good for getting rid of it at that early sign stage. (Itchy ear canal etc)
    Basically swimmers ear is dirty water festering in your ear and infecting it. Earcandles seem to dry it out and end inner ear festivities.

    But please nobody take my word for it, i’m not a doctor.

    I do however swim at Sydney beaches a lot and i’ve found it works for me.

    Sorry to hear about your ear sk, though good to c it hasn’t affected your sense of humour. Hope it will be all better very soon.

    The Church has gotta be inducted into the Aria Hall of Fame. No excuses, if this yr was Kevin 07 next yr it is The Church 08. Know u hate those awards, but do it for the fambley, give the girls & NK a memory of their Dad & hubby they’ll cherish and be as proud as punch of, not to mention all the fiends, fans. It will bring you a new audience, good karma & hopefully heaps of money.

    oh hall schmall…its just a yardstick and not even a good one but for some reason it means something to some people and is just our way of saying that
    you’ve got a body of work and influence very few artists achieve i think most church fans would agree that your band is under appreciated by the mainstream. its recognition and may mean more to your fans fans than you guys.

    How strange. I was talking to Julia about this very thing just recently SK, I even created a petition (btw Steve, Jules mums not well, send her some good karma).

    What does the Hall of Fame mean? To be honoured by your peers and make your mum as proud as punch!! I’d be stoked myself but what it means to you is more important, and your girls would be real proud of. Dad would be cool 🙂

    For the record, The ARIA criteria :

    Induction Criteria

    The guidelines set out below were the principle parameters for induction when the ARIA Awards first started in 1987. The guidelines have not changed since.

    1. The Hall of Fame recognises four categories of music – pop/rock, jazz, classical and country;
    2. The nominees’ careers must have commenced, and ideally achieved significant prominence, at least 20 years prior to the year of proposed induction;
    3. Membership into the Hall of Fame is reserved exclusively for the creators of recorded music – the writers, the recording artists, and in some cases, the producers;
    4. The nominees must be responsible for a significant body of recorded work;
    5. The nominees work must have had a cultural impact within Australia and/or recognition within the world marketplace.

    Say no more!

    Im going away for a few days, more on this later. You deserve it, its long overdue, recognition of your work…take it and run with it. I know you dislike awards and rightly so in most cases.. but..this one is earnt, and not just decided by a ‘flavour of the month ratings thing’.

    Maybe the important thing is not to think about WHY you should accept the nomination but more about WHAT IF you dont? Would you regret it down the track? There for eternity.. just a thought. Gotta go.

    love Sue

    veleska1970 | 30 November 2007 at 1:51 pm #


    that is most DEFINITELY a case of swimmer’s ear!!! i know so, i’ve had it myself. **cringing** **cringing** oh, ow!!! OWWWWW!!! that fucking HURTS. and i don’t think there is any pain that comes close for except maybe labor and childbirth. and maybe a drysocket. (had one of those, too.) and all that pus buildup just sitting in your ear canal puts tremendous pressure on your eardrum.

    that is pain that cannot be explained. **cringing** you feel it all the way down your neck, really. even your teeth hurt. and your entire ear is sooo sensitive that the slightest feather-touch blasts you off into the stratosphere with utter agony.

    here is a trick that i learned from one of my brothers who used to be a lifeguard~~if you ever suspect you have gotten water in your ear, then take a cotton ball saturated with rubbing alcohol, turn your head as level as you can, squeeze a few drops of the alcohol in your ear, pull the top of your ear up to stretch the ear canal so that the alcohol can work its way down, wait a few secs and then turn your head back over. the alcohol draws the water out of your ear canal. but you have to do it as soon as you can after you get the water in your ear, otherwise if it just sits in there it causes inflammation like you had and by then the only remedy is the doctor. (and, alternative treatment 😉 )

    oh, God, steve~~i feel sorry for you. like i said, i have had swimmer’s ear, and i know what you went through!!!! i’m sending feel-good vibes your way. the antibiotics should knock that out in a few days. just keep a warm moist cloth on your neck on that side.

    lotza love…..

    Aria? I’ve no idea what it means over there, but from these distant shores I’d say anything that brings you reward and recognition without compromising your integrity has to be a good thing. I have no idea whether the ARIA is “sad” or not. Also, if it means a few people are stirred to go and check out the wonderful music you’re producing now that’s got to be good for their poor, negelected spirits!

    Thank you for making me laugh out loud this morning. I, too, recently had the syringe and although nothing as glamorous as garlic and olive oil came out, it was an experience on par with dental surgery. But i still have pressure, fullness and pain making the tinnitus sound like a fucking train rushing by constantly. Perhaps i should see a specialist, too. Keep me informed how it goes with you.

    Steve — RE: your hall of fame question…I think what Sue says is spot on. I mean I don’t know anything about ARIA — but based on the criteria that Sue lists, and that, as she says, it doesn’t seem to be based on what someone one is wanting to sell for a particular financial quarter or whatever — it seems like a good thing for The Church, and most certainly a deserved thing as I’m sure most of us that read your blog would argue.

    All of your band’s fans know that you guys deserve more recognition than maybe has come your way — and while it’s apparent that the acquisition of fame and acclaim hasn’t necessarily been the Church’s guiding principle, if someone comes to your door and says here it is, we have it for you and we want it to be acknowledged in this here institution…well…it seems like a good thing. And again, a damn well deserved one.

    Hope your ear is better very quickly!

    To be in a hall of fame means nothing really,
    I’m sure SK would be a bit embarrassed by it all,
    like Nick Cave, he would think it’s all a bit tedious and farcical.
    As it is so lame and meaningless he may as well do it,
    it can’t really hurt apart from being really embarrassing.
    I think SK’s legacy is assured and this won’t cheapen it.
    Owl always asks him self this question when faced with a decision – “Would Neil Young do it”
    , and in this case he has.

    Oh dear…you must have smelled like an Italian restaurant gone bad. Hope the ear is clearing up and you are feeling better.

    Hall of Fame — If someone wants to say “hey you guys are great!” to you I see no problem at all with saying “Yeah, we are!” I do think it would be embarrassing to lobby for entry into any HOF, but if someone wants to give it to you it’s all good. And it could be good publicity too. I’m not going to like or respect you any more or less if you get inducted — and I don’t think other serious fans of yours will either. But there are people who will pay more attention to you and will give you more opportunities (some which might even be ok) if if you get this honour. Your artistic integrity is solid and being inducted into the Aria HOF won’t change that.

    Oh and you are a cheeky little devil!

    There are seven new paintings up at the SK art site. So go check out the new art

    i had 2 teeth pulled about 9 days ago. Hurt like heck for a few days and i had to cut back on smoke intake and necking. Now 6 days ago i had a tooth that needs a root canal tweaked around inside and a temp filling put on. Well hell the pain yesterday and last night, had to run get more painkillers from the Dentabitch. My jawbone and area are 2 inches swollen now. I feel for ya. You got an ear for music and you are losing the hearing, I got a tooth to bite off anyone’s head and i’m losing my teeth. Hope all goes well Stevie Wonder.

    I never post anonymously by the way unless some of the times i am posting deep wisdom of the sages…

    You were meant to put your are in the oven for two hours after applying the oil and garlic.
    No wonder the doc thought your were half baked.
    As for the Hall of B/S…..
    Industry recognition – big wow!
    There are admittedly some great bands who have accepted – but what the fk took them so long to ask the planet’s, never mind Australia’s, greatest ever band!

    2007 – Nick Cave was “inducted” into the ARIA Hall of Fame

    He used his “power” wisely. Holding the weapon-shaped ARIA trophy menacingly aloft, he proceeded to wield his newfound powers mercifully…

    “By the power vested in me, I hearby induct…” and he went on to list various other Birthday Party/Bad Seeds members who ARIA had rejected for various reasons.


    Ask him!

    All hail to NK.

    Re Hall of Fame: it’s not going to damage your cred. You all got into the music business because you wanted to play and write music and the world has supported you in your vision. Grace will become you, Kilbey the elder
