more stuff is on its way hip hoorah hooray

the speed of the stars is finished

its the bees knees and the last word in celtic rock

frank kearns and i united in our quest for truth and beauty

have created , yes, this masterpiece

frank and his strat and his eventide harmoniser negotiate delicate misty places

a music of minutiae and cosmos

the words gleaned from dream

the record is a door to another world

what a wonderful job everybody did with it

a magical record and something unusual


we have bowie at the sydney opera house with the sydney symphony ork

wow cmon cats thats gotta be cool right

your humble hero one of 6 singers some of the best songs ever written

then back to work on solo album in june

then back to usa with furs

and more Bowie shows in other australian cities

as well as the golden greats show you may see me doing with other various people

its all happening for sure

I’m the busiest guy in the biz baby and i never stop working

being a renaissance man means you gotta keep feeding the engine

yeah yeah sure kilbey sure whatever you say

enjoy it while you still can

be appreciative of all you have

don’t look back

dare to impose your will on the emptiness and silence

such a struggle to fight with everyone who wants to change your trip

so many bumps so many humps

so many jumps into the unknown

its exhilarating its tiring its thrilling its mundanity itself

just seen the rough cut of my doco


more of kilbey jumpin’ around in slo mo

while the church cooks up a jam

and less of the old guys pontificating  (i prescribe for it)

so anyway some of it is pretty promising so far…

so thats me right there i guess for ya

and in spades

a travelling tragedian

a bohemian buffoon

a stupid genius

an ordinary joe

    Oh man! Would love to see the Bowie shows. Is there any chance they will be filmed?

    You are one busy cat. Yo. My cat says you work too much, but her ethic includes napping, eating, and more of same.

      That’s my work ethic too.

      When life’s said and done I’ll just regret I wasn’t born a cat.

        We are similar, but Steve’s chakras go to 11. I think that’s part of what draws us to him!

    I am a Celt by blood too Mr K. People forget that’s who the english were before the angles and Saxons. England is the most beautiful country Well I’m great at instruments. I would have been a rock star too. I just don’t have the nerves. Too much anxiety so I retreat into the void or back to the times long gone and I would wear a tunic but then peopled call ya wierd and say what a rebel when really it’s just a modest design. When life’s said and done I’ll just regret I wasn’t born an organian. You remember those smiling awesome dudes in Star Trek errand of mercy. Who just displayed themselves as medieval but were really just pure light. Man they were great. Great show

      I personally am glad I wasn’t born an orangutan. Menkes are scary and creepy.

    Sounds as though an epiphany has finally found its release? May new waves of awareness send you off into happiness and renewed success of mind and body.

    Mighty projects and heavy schedules are no match for your rage of artistic passion!

    Till July… cheers.

    I’ve seen all the Church videos by golly. You are the most “Bowie” in bel- air. You really have some if his mannerisms in that one. I always loved that one. A girl and a sailor and a hot dog trailer love that. With Marty crunching that rickenbacker and Peter with that bendy awesome solo. Next time you come to pittsburgh I’m going to meet you I got your autograph back In 2011. And in 2015. I was wearing a goofy hat outside and I said nice to meet you Mr Kilbey and you said. You too! Even though we never really met. LoL. And everyone outside laughed. God bless you for all the magic in your bass fingertips and voice Age doesn’t mean anything. I’m 29 and if I was up on stage with that many decibels. I’d run to the back and cry. : ). From a minstrel to a rock star. Keep the Church alive keep the 12 string jangly and the voice of the poet from ceasing in this managerial office world

    Hey Steve,

    Looking forward to Speed Of Stars what I have heard so far is truly beautiful. Speaking of stuff I know you had some account issues, I-Tunes is now missing The Idyllist and Miscelania. Just thought you would want to know so people can purchase. See you in St.Louis, missing Detroit again. Luck would have it I will be there for my wife’s job this time and we will be there to see you, last time I was there for work and got see you in Kansas City, Missouri must be my lucky state.

    Take care,
