dear fiendss
the time being was absent yesterday
due to a lost internet connexion
eg whoever it is hes piggybacking off
finally got wise
and the internet round this way
is scarcer than hens teeth
ok im on now
but its coming n going
getting fainter
getting fainter
wouldnt you know it…thats how life ends
ah…..
so i may not be able to even post this blogge
in which case
how is it that youre reading it…
huh?
so i donna know whatsa going on with the net
dont someone tell me i gotta fork out for that as well now
it may be the straw that breaks the panthers back
here again
i thank profusely
every subscriber who has supported ttb
i appreciate it
and its very honourable of you lot
to chip in…even tho you didnt have to
the people who dont pay are welcome as well of course
just not quite so welcome as the others
no ha ha
thatsa justa me being a foolish being
being foolish
foolish being
ishing foolbe
anyway
nice to have you here
i was fretting to my fambley yessaday
them saying oh jus’ have a dayoff
me going no no no
you dont understand
i dont have days off
thru the thick n thin
up against your well
thru rain n sleet n hailstones as big as bowlings balls
i am here
i know you need it
thats why youre fiendss
because you want your being
when you want it
and you dont wanna fucking have to wait
and then you were left cliff hanging
the being delving deeper ever deeper
shorely hay-dey storeys whirr necksed
i was about to finally tell you some thing
when i lost the thread
the internet went down
i was stranded
lowtide becalmed
in a sea of passwords i couldnt guess
signals i couldnt attract
and diagnostics i couldnt understand
fuck em all then
i did what i could
i guess im gonna have to pay
its against my (greedy) principles
i feel the world does owe me a living
or at least
the internet could continue to be free
why isnt there a rule for me
and a rule for everyone else?
so inconvenient doing it by the book
the way eye see it
is this
all tho i am not the greatest
singer
writer
musician
poet
painter
actor
blogger
who ever lived
im so much better
than loads of the useless gits
who are living it larger than moi
in fact
now take 2 minutes
to think of all the talentless
shallow
“straight”
hopeless
idiots
who are
in fact
living it larger than your beloved being
be beloved being
being beloved be
arent you angry that some
pretty insipid boyband
are raking in more shekels
than your heroic killa
or some old actress making 20 mill a pic
while your main man stands in the wilderness of cyberspace
virtual cap in hand
i know it must hurt you my people
to see me in my thousand buck falcon
while lesser luminaries cruise in lexii n beemers
i sit here in my flannelette shirt n my broken glasses
yet blokes who dont know nothing
ponce about in top line suits n ties

the twillies arrived sunday night
+ 5 other swedes from their fambley
will be living round the corner from us
in a nice house
minna looks more like uma thurman than ever
but dont say it!
elli looks like scarlet
there was a lotta noise here lassanite
we scored a few blows back against downstairs
and their insufferable doof doof doof

have been working more on solo album with timbo
its coming along nicely
very pleased
youll like it
its pretty good
im sure youll love it
and you’ll say
why aint this guy livin’ it large?
and there wont be no answer
thats for sure

    Glad to see you’re back on line now Steve, I’m sure alot of people were starting to get worried!
    I don’t often comment, but just wanted to get this one off my chest after reading todays comments…
    So many people get endless enjoyment through ttb but for those uninteligent beings (anon. 7.46)that are so small minded and unimaginative not to appreciate what steve does, why subject everyone else to your negative crap. Honestly, there is enough bullshit in the world right now, we don’t need any more.
    Oh and by the way, since when did being an extremely talented musician, artist, writer etc., not classify as ‘having a job’?? It’s all hard work right? Surely we have to admire those who follow their passions in life. I certainly do…

    Glad you’re back Steve..

    First
    Steve how come no live earth for you crunchies? I have no knowledge of musicbiz but something is well out of line. Can you communicate what you think stops yous from being invited or whatever the reason is? It’s got me stumped – wanna help you and the crunchies get mainstream recognition……it actually makes me pretty angry.

    Really looking forward to the solo album (see not CD) and new hits.

    Glad you are surrounded by your grounding off-spring – wallow in it..love it….get pissed of at the change…and love it all the same.

    Have loved reading your blogge these last few weeks.

    Take care.

    Ok – some of us here could afford to sling 100 bucks at the Killa, no?
    Some can’t, I know.
    But some of us can – so how about if 20 of us hurl a $100 a-piece SK’s way?
    It’s gotta help and it’s piffle money compared to the benefit of a continuing Kilbey, yes?
    So how about it?

    and you’re most welcome for the subscription~~if it helps pay the bill so that i (and others) can continue to enjoy your blog, then i pay gladly. and i definitely hear ya on the undeserving idiots out there who are reaping obscene wealth and recognition for doing much of nothing. and it’s not just so-called musicians, either. there’s a lot of space-wasters in the world in all kinds of jobs. and while on the subject of live earth ~~yeah, why WASN’T the church asked to play??? again, people just don’t what the fuck they’re missing. the ignorant masses. 🙁

    so the twillies have finally arrived. yippee!! that should definitely boost your spirits. and it sounds like your solo album is going to be another gem.

    but then, they always are. 🙂

So if this money has to start going to pay the internet bill, that’ll be Steve back on his uppers again. Dunno about you, but it fucks my head to think of a bloke of this calibre bein so skint.

Today everthing that is innately bad is wrongfully and universally lauded as good. Just imagine that KISS (no talent at all) made and continue to make millions.

    I have a question and I’m only asking because I truthfully don’t know. Why don’t you guys bite the bullet and go out as an opening act for someone? If you guys went out with say REM…wouldn’t the cost of the tour be underwritten by them? Leaving you guys to just concentrate on music? If you guys looked your best and played your best, at least half that arena every single night would go home looking to buy Church cds. In exchange for swallowing a little pride…a whole new audience would be exposed to your music. I’m only just throwing an idea out there, but wouldn’t that work?

    Hey you anonymous R.E.M. fan,

    I will only say this once, The Church wood never play with R.E.M. or open up for them for that matter, The Church Band rules all bands don’t you know, The Church is the only true band that matters,
    well in my life anyway…

    Let me clarify one thing please. I only mentioned REM for the sake of mentioning the name of a band. I don’t care for them personally but that’s just my opinion. Some people in my profession have noticed an occasional resemblance throughout the years. Sorry for not making that point more clear. There are much better bands for the Church to go out with and yes…The Church are the best without question. I saw The Church on the Starfish tour in 1988 with Peter Murphy and another band who escapes my memory. It’s not like they haven’t shared the bill before. I still say it’s an honest question. As far as the anonymous part goes…forgot. I will fix that now. Very lively debates today. I’m enjoying the reading.

    Peace,

    Be good if the solo album and singles release brought you some well deserved ££££££’s.
    I’ll be buying both and keeping up with TTB subs……which are too cheap! It’s up to us fiends to pay a more realistic amount for the amazing experience of hearing DAILY (well, we’ll ignore yesterday) from Steve effing Kilbey!!!!

    John | 10 July 2007 at 6:57 pm #

    Unfortunately, it’s the way of the world. Mozart didn’t exactly die a rich man. Unfortunately, monetary success in the artistic world seems to have little to do with true art and everything to do with the marketing and promotion of the talentless, and the selling out of the talented.

    I’m not an artistic person in any way, shape, or form. Heck, my cat can draw better than me. I couldn’t write a song, play an instrument, write a verse, a poem, a story, take an amazing picture, any of it to save my life. Basically, I have nothing to contribute to the “artistic” world, so maybe I’m not the best qualified to comment on such things.

    But I know that when I listen to Kilbey and The Church I feel literally carried away by the music and spritually elevated by the words. I listen to a lot of classical music and a variety of other “artists” and I just don’t feel that way with other music and words as intensely and consistently as I do with Kilbey and The Church.

    I know when I pull up to an intersection in my van with windows rolled down, it’s the only music I never feel tempted to turn down. It’s the only music my family doesn’t ask me to turn down.

    I know my daughter’s harass me to no end over my music choices, however, the only CD they ever ask for specifically by name is ULTC.

    I know the first song I listen to that my (very picky) youngest daughter ever added to her iPod was Jazz and it’s the only music she wants to plug into with me when we are sitting on the swing in the back yard stargazing.

    I know the CDs with Steve’s art are always the ones people pick up off my desk at the office and gander and gawk at over and over and over.

    I know when I read this blog I feel as if I have just taken a trip to the library and pulled an undiscovered book off the shelf. I know when the blog is not there I feel like the library is closed.

    I’ve never been into people worship, because people often disappoint, but I know that despite all of his abilities Kilbey seems like a human being, one with tremendous successes that can’t be measured monetarily and one who makes mistakes, as we all do, but who owns up to his for all to see.

    So, I don’t know much about art, but I do know what I like and what I need to fulfill that aspect of my life. And I know that I’m not alone in that regard.

    sometimes maybe
    our american readers
    are mistaking this irony
    which a lot of my stuff is pickled in
    yes i regret the heroin days
    and of course
    all my problems
    are pretty much my own doing
    so its a sorta irony
    that im saying a lotta this stuff
    some truth
    some irony
    some bullshit
    dont you understand?
    theres humour in here too
    its a tragi-comedy

    Ah heysus or some god! let’s compare e-net probs:

    you don’t pay and you get no net
    I overpay, and I get not net.
    I disconnect net, I get no net, no bills. You’re not going sideways or backwards- but then again (scratches head mulling over that last statement)…..

    I work day ‘n nite on les fine arts.

    Anywho,

    I hear a former vitner gone fine art collector is searching for artists like you: “UNSUBSTANTIATED”. Pardone moi, I’ll be back later with the name of his Gallery- some of it’s out of doors. He’s in the southern part of Sonoma…

    So there yahavit, get the net while the getting is good.

    Peerless Rolling Stone Music Critic, David Fricke, reveres Steve and The Church. He is an objective, music-reviewing icon. Nobody here should ever regret over-hyping the greatness of The Church because it’s true ! Crowded House, AC-DC, Tim Finn and Silverchair are overated but in fairness Crowded House is the best Aussie band with the exception of the Anglo-Aussie Band, The Church.

    Is this a show? showbiz? …
    hellish!

    the internet disconnected just on the time, when the final curtain was pulled back, finally
    can you believe it?
    so everything is already arranged by others …
    there’s a hand controlling us,
    and makes us believe we are controlled by ourselves
    … did you ever pick a flower when it’s just sprouted out?…
    Did you know how cruel it is?
    Now I’m doing it
    It still wet with early morning dew

    … you need not a lexii or beemers baby
    you are in your golden chariot
    travelling west from further east
    the golden light hurt my eyes
    and they say it’s wiser
    to stop chasing your traces

    Crowded House consider themselves an Australian band. Nick Seymour is Australian, Paul Hester was Australian. They were formed in Australia.

    Hey Steve,
    the Milky Way is a core passion for me in reality, in song, mythology, whatever. Ive been based in Wellington 18 years, left Sydney to be with my son here, I remember poets in the park, working with Russell (Crystal Set)and Karen (Curious Yellow), we had great times… will catch up if I can, you painted the aural backdrop to some of the best years of my life, and for that I am ever grateful, as an engineer I love the reality of the acoustic performance, the realness, that I strive to capture and reproduce when i feel thats necesary. I look forward to your show, I’m imaging the milky way foro real these days, see http://www.sky.org.nz I’m fighting for dark and unpolluted skies. chur for the inspiration.. moza..

    why isnt there a rule for me
    and a rule for everyone else?
    so inconvenient doing it by the book

    YEAH!! That’s how it should be. 😉 But of course should and is aren’t often the same. It just sucks, doesn’t it?

    Happy to hear the Twillies got in ok. Had a laugh at you doing to the downstairs neighbors whet they do to you. I was just wondering the other day if they had quieted down….
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    And some great news (thanks to a tweleve year old who loaned me her laptop) — check out New paintings by Steve Some very cool pieces. Go on. You know you want one. (or two or three…) 😉

    there is a tide in the affairs of men
    which taken on at the flood leads to fortune
    omitted all the voyage of their life
    is bound in shallows and in miseries
    on such a full sea are we now afloat
    and we must take the current when it serves
    or lose our ventures

    love all your works sk, please don’t stop now…

    irony at dinner parties, like those other topics, should be avoided, I learned some years ago, when after indulging in some self deprecatory hilarity, a dinner companion asked me why I always made myself look so stupid, and so it was at that moment the great yawning void of literalism opened up before me in all its horror

    Evening sk,

    Still catching up on ye olde blogges. Know how u feel with computer probs, had afew of them lately and the printer had to get in on the act too. Argh!!!!!!
    Deep breath.

    Good news that the twillies have arrrived safely. You’ll be speaking in your best authoritive Peter voice to bring order to the house.

    Went to see Matt Finish the other nite, didn’t know that Matt Moffitt had passed away in 2003. Very sad. Do you know Harry Brus, the bass player. Must say I was very impressed. (Not taking anything away from you, I get mesmerized by watching u play too).
    Speaking of playing, it’s a long time with no Church news. You haven’t broken up and not told anyone have you? Still waiting to see if there is any tour, solo news.

    Take care and look after that beautiful fambley of yours.

    Peace & love,
    Therese
