monday arvo
grey clouds
its turned cold again
my lovely shaped red nose is freezin’
my manicured tapered magicians fingers are freezin’
my so so feet are freezin’
my well toned butt is freezin’
(if you aint seen it, dont scoff)
i read yessadays comments about triffids
sure enough mccomb comes on shuffle
grant will be along any moment now
probly followed by church
and theres a message in there
i dont want to interpret
muse: oh lord youre a hypochondriac yeblik
yeah yeah
same as it ever was
a master and a fool i remain
strangely the next song following mccomb
was
ethereal message
by hex
im serious here
what do i make of that?
ethereal message
this is happening as i write
like tarot cards turning up intentionality
something links me to the shuffle
down down down feathers in the air
down down down everywhere sings donnette
the birth of trip hop i read someone wrote about this record
completist must have i would have thought
contains some of my nicest pieces of music
i was proud of this record
sneaking into some big studio trying to mix it
this was 1988 and i was recognizable in new york
dont let the manager see you
or he’ll know who you are
and i’ll get into trouble
says bryce the wonderful engineer
who mixed this record
you see
he was allowed to bring his friends in to do demos
but we shoulda been paying
but i couldnt really afford it
it says mixed at “gambit” studios
a gambit is a risk or small loss for hope of gain in future(chess)
the next song on my shuffle is spark
i kid thee not
what does that mean?
am i to be spared?
anyway one night real late
the manager of studios comes in
and im acting like one of bryces friends
doing a demo
and the dude doesnt even know me from adam
and we talk n he clicks the remote
and the tv comes on
mtv that is
and blow me down gently
but theres me plastered all over the screen
singing reptile
the manager looks at me
the screen
the screen
me
hes shaking his head
i get up n disappear into studio
the dude says nothing
goes home
never mentions it to bryce again….
the next song on shuffle is crystal set
but its one with philthy maher singing
walk away
love like amphetamines keepsa hittin’ her sings philthy
oh wow
how like shes grinding her teeth n needs to urinate frequently
she has blurred vision n shaky hands n no saliva in her gob
now how weird was that trio of songs
people i have 13,000 songs in my little poddle
what are the chances of them 3 coming up
next up was some krautrock
then some blue nile easter parade
oh what a weary lovesick fool the singer is
his chasing love has left him exhausted
like all romeos eventually they run out of puff
trying to keep all those plates spinning at once
one woman or a hundred
the singer always returns empty handed n world weary
each lover says to himself
i will pursue love all the way this time
i will write songs predicting how this love will last n last
but it doesnt, does it?
maybe a few months
maybe a few tours
what is it these singers are really in love with
they are in love with being in love
they are in love with love itself
love love love love love
all the dreamy crooners
all the melancholy men intoning their lack of love
love has gone
love has fled
took my baby
took my head
love does everything in songs fiendss
it lies bleeding
its a stranger in a black sedan
it looks like a window
it closes like a door
love tears people apart
love brings em together
all the mistresses n sugar daddies
all the tarts n breadheads
all sweethearts n gentlemen visitors
all the singers n their songs
love jumps over tall buildings( in a single bound!)
and it works at a tobacconists on oxford street
it delivers mail on tuesdays
and it deals speed at a bar on 7th ave
love wears lovely clothes and looks good naked
love turn ya into a lemming
love makes you stupid and intense
idiot love will spark confusion
…..but love is not loving
a man loves his mother
his sisters
his wives
his daughters
his grandaughters
a man loves his food n beer
a man loves his mates who drink beer n watch the footy with him
not this man
i dont do that
no one has ever asked me to
but from what ive seen of it
it dont appeal to me
a bunch of drunken yobs yelling at a tv set
gee…whats wrong with me
i have to spoil everything dont i?
boy
when i think of englishmen beer n soccer
i feel like a hare among a bunch of mastiffs
or a bunch of american olde boys watching gridiron
or aussie oafs glued to the rugby n their tinny
look
i can think of few things worse
finally now
right at the end of this blogge
old flame comes on the shuffle
short n sweet
the way it should be
beware
an old flame is still burning there baybee
ha!

    I’m always too aware of my “shuffle” sequences….to the point of predicting a good day/night from it{thankfully there’s always the “FF” button to alter the future…..at the partay I sang at on sat night,one of the ladies asked{as a dare/ new and comedic experience},if I would,just for one set…replace the word “heart” for “arse” in the smulzy songs that they had put on my “human juke box,set list”…it was pretty funny….the standard”I will survive” done a bit more raw n raspy than they’re used to.the lyrics being altered UM AH!{but they loved it and roared for more}the song NOW goes ..”It took all the strength I had ,not to fall apart..just tryin hard to mend the pieces of my broken arse”….there’s a laugh for ye all,mmmmmaybe {don’t}try this at home…have a smashing night lovely ones…love,as always,genx xxxxx x

    hi Steve, i really enjoyed the sat night triffids with you relaxing back in the studio with sparkle, eloquence (yessir) & a mischievious look in his eyes, you seemed very relaxed. Yes The Seabirds is a brilliant track, I was hoping you’d mention those very lines). While its a major faux pas to not have a church album there (how could they choose?! :).. it was kind of cool that ‘Born Sandy Devotional’ was one of the chosen few, or four I should say. I reckon if they decide to do another series (with Starfish), let others talk about it. I enjoyed hearing you talk about David M’s work, the feelings it evoked, the lyrical landscapes that impressed, would be nice to see other peers do the same for Starfish. Just my opinion. OF course, some here would rather hear the Heyday story lol

    ps re yesterday, my brother used to answer ‘John Lennon’ or the Beatles for every trivia question he couldnt answer ie who is the Crown Prince of Lichtenstein?… ‘um, John Lennon?’) … “ok, who invented the Hills Hoist?” .. “gotta be The Beatles” lol

    as a displaced aussie in the UK, finding myself in an even more excluded position since I don’t like soccer or either code of rugby – it’s very disheartening to note that the weekend heralded the start of a new UK football season. it seems we don’t even get two months without bloody football!

    it’s not a bad thing to not like ball sports, not a bad thing at all. in no way makes you a bad person. in no way makes me a bad person. the season’s only been going 3 days and i’m terribly sick of it already.

    *sigh* at least the sun is (currently) shining.

    12 str..you’re so right,spot on,about all of those songs….stuff of this calibre can’t be matched..no matter how far and wide your scope is,or ever has been!I was re-playing my favourite Church song to one of my closest girlfriends on the weekend.She simply said”yes,it’s SK’s magic,and the rest of it just fits,and gives me a warm,easy feeling in my bones.what part of this song did you think I would be surprised with?The music has always been sparkling,and had a deep resonance and intensity.It’s about time that their music was recognised.”there’s a lotmore to come of this Divine band of merry men,I’d say. Great blogge today SK…I’d like to borrow your Ipod,as my music resources appear to fail in comparison to yours..13000 tracks?..so jealous!{pout/sigh} xo

    I loved Hex from the minute I heard the first album – which was on headphones in May 1990, at 4.30 in the morning with the new sun shining into the room. Perfect, really. I couldn’t believe how many wonderful songs there were, one after the other, the beauty of Donette’s voice, the glorious melodies, god, I loved it. Still one of my 3 or 4 favourite Church ‘side projects’. All these years later, it’s nice to be able to say thanks, Steve.

    great one today…i live right in the middle of football land. people are sports obsessed here…baseball too. it’s alright though…i grew up with sports because of my dad…played a bunch as a kid. still watch a bit. don’t do much yelling at the tv though. i’m usually fooling with my bass while i watch…but maybe if my teams loses i could smash my bass over the tv??? nahhh…don’t have quite that much of testosterone.

    steve…just watched the live video clips on the church’s myspace site this weekend…good lord man…incredible! destination and ripple were my favorite…but something about easy though…that song just makes me happy. don’t know exactly what or who you wrote it about, but i know what i connect it to in my life…love it.
    by the way, tim plays his ass off on all of it…great drummer! would be great to have a magnetic strip tour live dvd, based on what i saw. i know all of us here would probably gobble it right up.

    take care

    thanks for the hex story, i enjoyed that. I really love both of those albums – so ghostly, so ethereal, that soft beautiful voice combined with the poetry and poignancy of the lyrics… I got the Hex album off e-bay back when i was living in tokyo (someone i worked with introduced me to e-bay, and i went a little crazy buying all sorts of choich side projects and SK solo albums, back then when they were hard to find).

    Anyway, i used to listen to Hex late at night, round 2 or 3am, after i’d finished writing, i guess to sorta keep the dream alive in a sense…

    (speaking of crystal set, i just discovered their stuff recently, really really nice)

    i’ve never been able to stand watching sports on tv either. bores the shit out of me. i remember long thanksgiving afternoons, dinner at an uncle’s, everyone watching football or something, it always put me right to sleep.

    I love the music of The Church…I am very partial to good theatre…I enjoy watching the rugby League and I am into AFL…bit of everything I spose.

    I don’t find them mutually exclusive…in fact I love the variance of experience. And by the way…i rarely drink alcohol when I do these things and I only yell at the TV in moments of weakness.

    I have been known to clap and cheer and yell loudly when seeing The Church though!

    I’m not into yelling at the telly for anything, but I do go down the footie every other week to support my local team.
    It’s a habit. It isn’t theatre, it sure ain’t glamorous, but it is time I spend with my old man. He’s in his 70’s now, lives on his own and it’s OUR time. Something we’ve done together for 36 years. Male relationships can be tough and it’s a time when we can be close which makes it special to me, even though the team is crap.

    A friend of mine had a message from the beyond through a Flaming Lips video lately. She wouldn’t tell anyone else just me ’cause she was afraid they would laugh at her. I definitely empathize with getting messages and signals about my life from weird coincidences. It’s as good a ruler as anything. And I hate watching sports too. But I just drink beer and listen to records on the breaks.

    cause ya just wrote it baby!

    Funny but i asked myself the same thing when the Tony Bennett duets special came on PBS last night…and besides the concept of love..maybe they are in love with the celebrity and the “thrill of the deal” when you reduce your art to numbers and what will sell??…they no doubt cling to the tried and true…no big gambits for these old crooners…

    ’88-’91 to my recollection I was featuring you, the church, and side showing hex on my college radio show. I was a DJ beyond those years, but that was the infancy…hm- trip hop makes me think of The Young Gods, Christian Death, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Ice T. Thanks for usually being on the beautiful side of that ‘genre’.

    Love songs- some are so trite!! The more abstract the better, just imply the emotion, the expression, like -most- of your love songs. Explicit seems so dated and harsh when I go back and listen yet the abstractions seem to grow- like I want to hear them more often now.

    sports: I love tennis and I think I’d like to see a live cricket match since dear abby loves it. I know I know, the mens’ club get so looney for that on TV and in person!

    …dude, frisby golf? used to play that for hours.

    I think the romeos and crooners are missing the big picture…the word”love”,is akin to the word “nice”,in my opinion..very non descript and generically wasted in their phraseology….sometimes it’s not what you reveal,in a song,but what you don’t reveal,that tantalizes the ears of the audience…a great love song,strips itself bare without the use of tired and tacky lyrics…Ive never ever heard an SK lyric that wasn’t brilliant…You should teach the gifts you have for words dear SIR!

    “im serious here
    what do i make of that?
    ethereal message
    this is happening as i write
    like tarot cards turning up intentionality”

    From – http://www.cinemind.com/atwater/col3.html…..

    “The only purpose of synchronicity is to catch our attention.

    It signals that an external flow has been activated (for however long).

    ~ASPECTS OF FLOW~

    INTERNAL TO SELF
    Subjective environment
    Without a focus
    Release of thoughts
    Stimuli fade away
    Blank out into nothing
    Consciousness expands
    The mind flows
    You know more
    Connect with a source of wisdom greater than self
    Gain information
    Unify in consciousness
    A state of mind

    EXTERNAL TO SELF
    Objective environment
    More in focus
    Release of goals or vested interests
    Stimuli increase in clarity
    Perk up to new possibilities
    Experience expands
    The life flows
    You do more
    Connect with a source of guidance beyond self
    Gain harmony and an orderly rhythm to life experiences
    Unify with the world at large
    A state of living

    What I have consistently noticed is that synchronicity seems to function as a “signal,” showing us we have connected to or perhaps aligned with a greater stream of intelligence, a wholeness beyond ourselves – perhaps even the true source of our being. When we are “on course,” even for a moment, synchronicity tells us so. It gives us the feedback we need to recognize that an alignment has occurred.

    Our societal notion of “coincidence,” at least to my way of thinking, is actually a joke we play on ourselves. We use the term as a catchall so that we can avoid explaining what we do not know how to explain. I have discovered that there are no coincidences in life, just gaps in our ability to understand how unrelated parts can connect to form a unified and meaningful whole.”

    The perfect soul,will always have an element of meekness and self doubt ,in varying degrees..The way I feel it,makes me feel small and overwhelmed at my own insignificance..but the universe/unified field is here to remind us that love is present and abundant…Synchronicity..again and again,and again…ultimate love,and peace..xo

    trip hop was boring, druggy, techno. who the fuck cares? It was nearly as awful as hip hop, but for stupid white people.

    I DO have the first origions of trip hop- oh, yowza. You shoulda stuck around Switzerland, France, Austria, West US during your ‘Gold Afternoon Fix’trip..uh, tour. Trip hop was certainly on the lips of Sisters of Mercy and other pioneers before some critic took credit for the entire genre cira ’90. Early ’90’s trip hoppers should pay a deep debt to artists like you, MC 900 ft. Jesus, American Music Club, Codiene who invented the roots in the late 80’s.

    Geez…
    Everyone knows that music is always subject to opinion, but there are a whole lot of people who love Trip Hop (myself included). I don’t really see why you’d apologize, Steve.

    Trip Hop is really not much at all like Hip Hop, anon naysayer of before.
