today received new kk dvd
nice one!
the total live kk experience
(in tuxedos!)
featuring evil graham lee on pedal steel
n michael evans-barker on drums n perc
here we are live at the toff
(oooh is that diamanda galah my one true fan in the front row?)
old crooner me with the crows feet n scuffed up blunnies
mutton kennedy the modest maestro concentrating on his gig
i tell you its not a bad old vid
we play our entire 1st album n
give under the milfy weigh the kk treatment
plus providence
plus exclusive sneaky preview of kk2 with “the demo”
speaking of witch
i been listening to today
and its almost finally ready
martin has again come up with some music
which is just so right for your old ‘umble hero
to stick his rag tag grab bag of lyrical tricks on top of
(oooh ended a sentence with a preposition!)
the songs are a lot more eclectic than the 1st record
some bloody good hummable tunes
with mks inimitable touch
and your old groaners smooth voice
which causes savage beasts to be soothed
and old grandma groupies to faint in their wooly stockings
wow! it really is a great record n i want ya to hear it right now…
but ya gonna have to wait
so have some patients
songs about the esoteric hodge podge
and the friction when you enter this atmosphere
you gonna love it
why bother arguing?
its at least probably the best record ever made
and thats just an understatement
it will enlighten you while it enlivens you
the sad songs’ll make ya happy
n the slow songs’ll make ya fast
kennedy is the antipodean eno
and i’m the equivalent of lying in a bath of opium
whilst reading baudelaire and shakespeare and patanjali
with yer eyes tied behind your back
doubtless it’ll go to number one all round the world
coz people here can appreciate our subtle brilliance
(when the footballs over…of course)
send me a thousand bucks now n i’ll reserve you a copy, cats
mucho love
or watt ever

    why wait 'til the football's over?

    shirley you and emmkay could knock up some sort of world cup anthem and make a squillion

    I'd forgive you for it almost straight away

    (hell, I've nearly forgiven New Order)

    working titles anyone???

    a dream:
    ah, The Time Being's working his magic.
    after a few weeks of fitful (lack of)sleep, I just was just jarred from the most interesting dream. i was back in college(again), and lo and behold who was a guest prof there….SK.
    poetry, music, philosophy…the works. not even sure what the subject of the class was(intellectual heritage something or other), but
    it was THE happening class for people to be in – the girls all dug it because the Killer was the handsome shaman, the guys all dug it because it was rock and roll. i dug it because it was SK and even MWP showed up to visit.
    if only the dog hadn't barked to go out, I'd still be there….
    (and all the KK stuff coming up…can't wait. the first pairing of the K's has been in constant rotation of late.)

    Nice to see you back on form SK, but hey this blog is cruel – like dangling a carrot in front of a donkey! I'm so very much looking forward to expanding my collection again. At the moment your monsters n mirages set is constantly being played, cos if I forget to bring the CDs out of the car it doesn't matter, cos I got the MP3 downloads too. Yay!!

    Oh, and by the way, I may be a grand-mother 3 times over, but no-one would ever catch me in the woolly variety of socking. Haha!

    KK are very good. Isidore are very, very, very, very good.

    There is some good in this world that is otherwise rife with strife, violence, bloodshed and irreverence for life.

    SK is a sage !

    Be it teabaggers' tantrums?
    Natilic Trauma?
    Financial crises…
    I stand cut off at the knees
    My wooly hose unable to protect me
    Lying in a pool of oil and tears with a pelican
    Apathy feigned or otherwise
    Who cares.
    Good night and good luck.

    So long for a while

    Your Friend in Pennsylvania

    I'm pretty sure I prefer the new album over the first, which is always a good sign: no sophomore slump:)

    how does MK restrain himself, his ideas are distilled from the essence of tex-mex-surf-reverb. plays so minimally, once you start exploring his work it's hard to listen to other music ehich then seems so crowded.
    I'll certainly enjoy the new one.

    Tried to respond sooner to the "contest" but blog didn't allow responses. Particularly interested in the Secret History of Sk comments, but question which author you are referring to (there are a couple); and the authenticity of his writings. Sounds like an interesting read nontheless.

    Looking forward to the new cd; do keep us posted as to when we can buy it.

    i was at the gig in prime position with my brother and a seat and a table and a couple of beers, so i cant wait to see it sk – also, i discovered a place in iceland called grundarfjordur while travelling recently – i think it could be a pretty good place to listen to hologram of baal – thought i'd better let you know…

    A hotel in Stanmore where I stayed for a church gig loved the KK cd SO MUCH that I ended up leaving them my copy so they could play it for their guests over their inhouse system… lovely. The sacrifices we make to share the love!
