i feel betrayed
i feel lost
i think about my blogge
that got sent to magnetic heaven
my poor unknown unloved blogge
that i laboured over with love

fiendss i hadda nice nite lassa nite
i took a cab over to sunny newtown
with george the wurldss brainiest cab driver
hes fuckin’ discussin’ the subtext n semantics of rocknpop
and its apparent influence on left or boho pollytics
oh yeah
olde sk enjoys this stuff a lot more
hot enuff for ya?
how about those fuckin’ roosters?
george is one of those guys
who you gotta ask
why the hell is a intellectual giant like this
droppin off guys at the casino in a cab?
george you always gonna be mah driver
in the nite time
(glenny havin the solemn honour of daytimes)
these kinda guys make traffic jams fun
in fact i got into such a heated debait
about something
that i was surprised when i finally realised
that i wassa sposed to be going somewhere
and that i’d actually arrived (baybee)
i was at the vanguard
where i did a soundcheck for hi fi mike
cos i wassa gonna singa coupla songas thatta nite-ah
great songs
the long way home
a new one
i only did the words for
the nite before
great music
sorta euro dancey trancey nancy blah blah bjorky stuffy stuff
i dunno
i hate labelling stuff
cos i hate it when they try to do it to me
what the fuck am i n the chchru?
ive had
mope rock
indy rock
alternative rock
pscychedelic rock
paisley underground(puh-leeze!)
any way hi fi is a cool dude
the whole album is great
buy one cos i’m on there, fer sure
but im shore ya gonna dig the whole cd.
after soundcheck
i went down to arch boheemian artiste n culture vulture
davey c n his loverly wife jeonga c (she from silver korea)
hes made this horrific horror film
it must be excellent cos i can hardly bear to watch
its making my flesh crawl
it is a brilliant film, thats fer sure
but i donna lika feeling this feeling too much
sort of anxiety as soon as it begins
total suspension of disbelief
(or even dat belief)
im also gonna be doing the soundtrack
and its gonna bee nasty
(i hope)
not necessarily my cuppa tee
but i can do it
and i sometimes like too
now dc and jc
theyre pretty arty filmy types
live in a warehouse in gothsville
hes seen more arthouse movies
than youve had hot dinners etc etc
i wondering to myself how could he have escaped my blogge
so long
so there ya go d and j
you boheemian hipsters have finally been recognised
but remember
ya start out hip
you end up hip replacement
thats the way it is

anyway we had vegetarian vietnamese
we smoked some jazz cigarettes
we hit the vanguard
(naughty old sk had a double red bull n voddy)
i met the other luminaries
who were guestsingers like me
inge liljestrom
connie mitchell
and a guy called iota
who tim po. has just produced
who has a very mellifluous voice
he came onstage in a black long dress
fishnet long gloves n stockings
a big pair of boots
a fur collared jacket
and a lovely red velvet hat
(i think my auntie doris had one like that
at russells christening in 1963)
the dude can sing
i was pretty goode i guess
(as per fuckin’ usual)
the clapped
i said goodbye
bade my fond adieus to dc n jc
fled home
here i am today
i love ya

    I was listening to ABC radio the other night and a George the Cab driver phoned in to share his view on being a vegan and animal ownership, I wonder if it was the same guy.

    i’m gettin away with murder

    what’s goin on down the hall
    the drummers got my chick up against the wall
    she doesn’t know that he’s dis-eased
    i hope he feels very pl-eased
    to get away with murder

    just how long we can keep this up
    i can’t possibly tell
    when I looked in the mirror just then
    the guy in there sayed get to hell

    she’s got a face to make you feel speedy
    she’s like a page in the book i’m readin’
    she’s a hawk and you’re in her talons
    but her face is so like a sighron
    she’s gettin’ away with murder

    wair all black leather
    face deadly white
    eye’m madam lash
    queen of the nite
    creeture dementoid
    inward delite

    madam lash
    took her hand off her hip
    lyin down screaming
    bitin my lip
    she said sk
    you’re gonna get my whip

    madam lash
    madam lash
    you hit me again
    eye just know eye’ll crash

    bruise me
    knock out my teef
    masochistic freek-out
    dead on my feet
    pain is the pleasure
    the pleasure is ssssweet

    ono not that
    eye canna take anymore
    lyin here alone
    half dead on the floor
    she said you’re gonna get
    just what you paid for

    madam lash
    madam lash
    you hit me again
    eye just know eye’ll crash

    Red Bull, eh? If I touched that stuff with my energy level they’d have to shoot me up with 3 days worth of morphine just to bring me back to normal. On the other hand, Red Bull and morphine could be an interesting combination. Especially for me.

    It’s funny I just did a report for class on Red Bull aka liquid cocaine and other energy drink ingredients. I posted it to my blog a couple days ago. RB is banned in France and Denmark. I have had a few Vodka/red bullz in my time as well though. Nearly all diuretic ingredients that can leave you with heartache and dehydrated. Follow with H2O.

    Redbull is like a flag to a heart attack

    Red mags in a docs surgery
    My new diet
    3 cigarettes
    10 bottles of red
    7 chocolate bars
    does that add up
    to a heathy diet

    How low

    Can this go
    This scene or some else’s dream
    To an extent I can understand crazy killers but…….
    They are sober academics in an armoured think tank
    They are cold bloodied killers
    They are cold bloodied killers
    It’s my nightmare and my contrary

    Give me
    Jazz cigarettes
    Head full of zephyr or
    even sophistry
    ………..will do
    Turn the page
    A new age or an old sage

    Love is an emotion not a person
    Hate is an emotion not a person
    Through energy of time it travels
    to ravel

    In any vacuum
    I consume
    Absolute tripe
    its ripe
    There ain’t no way they’re right but they are so right so so right

    The wine is all drunk and so am I
    The wine is all drunk and so am I

    I have no tolerance for intolerance
    As much as opinions will differ
    Differ will opinions- I am sure – you will not change my mind
    As much as I love love
    hate hate
    They are cold bloodied killers
    in an armoured think tank
    They are cold bloodied killers

    Wrote this after reading ya blogge and a few reds and stealing your language
    I going to regret it tomorrow anit I
    Just so angry about the bastards in power.

    Happy to hear the hi fi gig went well. long way home is a supercool song. love the lyrics and the vocals. hope you do more along these lines. brings a whole new touch to a sorta music i wouldn’t normally listen to, ya know.

    got my choich tour posters in the mail finally from the halfspeed folks at choich merch (who should take a lesson from KH). got em on my ‘office’ wall (a term i use to make it seem like i do actual work there, instead of string sentences about the exotic in the hope of chipping away at the 9 to 5, spreading road fever, prompting deserters). one day, should i ever make enough money to eat, an sk painting will grace those same walls.

    waiting impatiently for ultc.

    (i think my auntie doris had one like that

    Llego al escenario en un largo vestido negro
    Guantes y medias de fishnet (sorry – no Spanish word for fishnet!)
    Un par de botas grandes
    Un abrigo con cuello de piel
    Y un bello sobrero de terciopelo rojo
    (creo que mi tia doris tenia uno igual en el bautismo de Russell en 1963)

    Just practicing…

    Jazzin up the stage
    with a red lipped howl
    of baritone and bull
    blessed breath

    Kilbey stands up to the Mike
    next to the Hi-fi guy also sharing this label
    SKILS into a new musical direction
    almost loving it too much he
    shudders holding back an erection

    Euro, techno, Bjorkish but soothing
    his selections carry the
    voice of a true master of erfection
    Kiddos and Bloggees I say to you now
    come buy this hi-fi m-labelled CD selection
    relax and refrain its not sounding like that annoying icelanders

    I dont mind a good horror that plays with the mind …didnt mind ‘Saw’. If its too scary, might have to watch this one with eyes shut, ears wide open!

    most people watch horror every day…Packer and Murdoch call it News…I call it “Tragedy” and it is never aired in my home. My mother says I don’t live in the real world…she worries about when she’s going to get bird flu and when her daughter is going to get with the “programme”. I worry about the day when my kids ask to watch the “News” and how I am going to explain it to them. Perhaps a Church soundtrack to the 6 o’clock edition may ease the horror. I think I am going to write a letter to Eddie with a concept of a new programme called “Good News” – I wonder whether it would get more ratings than the current programming.

    The News.
    It is horror but it is reality. Didnt Skyhooks write a song about that back in the 70’s?
    You cant hide it from your kids but you should explain it to them.
    And make sure there’s plenty of fantasy and magic in their lives to balance it.
    Current Affairs Shows. Now thats another matter…ugh!
