sorry fiendss
i cant bring myself to the seas
i mean, the Cs
i know i ppromised ya
and all
its like real fucking work doing that stuff
like answering questions
like travelling in aeroplanes
like disciplining kids
like having to explain yerself all the time
like rehearsing
like having a drug addiction
like being a tilers labourer on a building site
or pumping gas at the Total servo in wattle street
or mowing the lawn
or wiping up the dishes
or cleaning up my toys
or trying to learn to walk
or being born…….
i know y’all are paying me to write
but as an act of rebellion
i say no Cs today
you see you like me a little bit when im unpredictable
tho you mayent dig it at the time
and well
i just couldnt be BOTHERED doing the Cs
i’d rather just goof off with something like this
or some free form thing..
a poem?

hanky pankow
was a dour lad
he eschewed the good
and embraced the bad

a poem for ya

nk n i watched movie c@#sucker blues
about ye olde rolling stones
shot in 72
its a bootleg
the film never released
such an art movie
the film all grainy
it leaves afterimages of colour in b + w
the white corridors to n fro dressing rooms bleed into white glare
the stones are grainy cartoons
loaded on top shelf drugs
they ponce about
centres of their own universes
jagger gives an interview to 2 fawning journos
hes dressed in a little blouse tied at the waist
n either undies or swimmers
he sits up with his legs tightly crossed
and in a millisecond his face changes from
a young rockstar
a retarded girl
a petulant ape
a handsome rebellious brute
a petty old queen
a stoned moron
a frosty icon
an angry young man
a coked up gossip bag
a latter day percy shelly
back to
mick jagger
i mean
talk about a fucking chameleon…!
keith is mostly sleepy
everyone puffing on a never ending chain of cigarettes
keith chucks a telly out a window
it hits the floor 18 storeys below explosionless
keith giggles
jagger n bianca snort coke n mince abaht
mick taylor walks in on a rather ugly naked groopie
+ some roadies or something
she lies before him opening n reopening her legs
“ive never seen a room graced with such beauty” he snootily declares
as he gazes in disgusted abstraction upon her hirsute agenda
if yer looking for sex drugs n rocknroll
this is the movie for you
we see people cooking up
shooting up
gang bangs on aeroplanes
head jobs a plenty
naked scrubbers play with themselves
while keithy n mick bang tambos
8 miles high
a. groopie nurses a passed out keef
a black waitress at a roadie snort session declares
oh i aint never had it before…
i knew it’d be good..
but you know…
not that good…!
and the film slowly builds up an atmosphere of oppression
jagger argues with a road manager whos had a drug dealer
beaten up n kicked off the tour
jaggers slightly miffed
but his self obsession n narcissism never allow him to ever focus…
aware of the camera
he limply plays some counter culture cliche
“well man…er you can dig my trip..its not the bread man..”
as his voice drawls on n on in that affected lazy way
actually he comes across as a spoilt prisoner
within a sordid hedonistic bubble of froth n ego
the performances are all over the place
he barks his way thru brown sugar
marching up n down the stage like a brat in the school musical
then anothertime
he nails midnight rambler
every inch the quintessential rock deity
with his perfect bouncing hair
his perfect jawline
his perfect huge red lips
his perfect gymnasts body
jaggers sexuality is blurred here
where can i get my cock sucked
where can i get my ass fucked
he wails in the “title track”
and then indeed
in a crowded dressing room
jagger shrugs outta his get up
and we see his ass
and his cock n balls too
gee mick
you musta known the cameras were there
meanwhile keef snores on a plane
the roadies snort more coke
and root more groopies
and the stones stumble down more neverending white corridors
as if on their way to executions
the photographers
the screaming babbling crowds
the fans are driven crazy by the stones n their ginormous success
all the while on tvs the 1972 presidential thingos going on
1972 seems brutal wild chaotic
people seemed like theyd do anything
as they floundered in the void of the sixties collapse
the flower power dream had ended in the nightmare
of vietnam
yes children
the man was still pulling the strings
the “straights” were back on course
jagger n cronies
(we see hardly anything of bill w n charlie)
keiths companion du jour most times is bobby keys
the texan saxophonist
who hit the olde horse big time
theres one scene where
keefs sittin in a hotel room
hes in his dressing gown
and gone is his coleridge langour
and his sleepy bohemian i-dont-give-a-fuck
now he looks alert miserable
some lackey is on the phone
giving instructions n addresses in a serious tone
as if hes organising an invasion
“do you understand its 1205 blah blah st
and when you get there…blah blah”
i guess keefs run out of joy dust
and hes kinda anxious to get some more onboard
this movie aint covering up much…
the 2 stars dont come over too well…
you should see jagger twittering away in a car
smoking a spliff and ramblin on
“blah blah blah me me me”
he squeaks on as bianca yawns n keef nods in the backseat
if you love rocknroll
see this film
it aint pretty
its gotta be 10 million times better than rattlenhum
or any other rock doco i ever seen
its gonna disturb ya
its gonna haunt ya
where are all those people now
the rabid psycho fans
“they took my baby off me cos i took acid”
mumbles a sad ghost in the black n white wilderness
of a mid west stadium carpark
all the kids
that roaring screaming mass
all of em now late fifties or sixties
this is an art movie
make no mistake
the film flashes n pops n drops out
it flares out to brilliant bone white
it condenses into impenetrable black
it seemed to have all happened a million years ago
in some desolate clunky universe
(check out the telephones)
you see glances of truman compote
tina turner
andy war-hole
blah blah
etc etc
where glamour meets the visceral
where fascination n disgust collide
where hero n villain blur
how do you feel now?
ladies n gentlemen
the greatest rocknroll band in the world
plus very naughty bits

    thank you very much for the painting in my mail today. beautiful, Ye Freckled One! Who is that coronated girl in your heart?

    reading your A’s and the B’s – –

    (honestly, i couldnt imagine you going to the Zeds, because it’d be routine and it’d be a bore….)

    now, what really intrigued me:
    your Seven Wonders Of R’n R (the sycophant in my head screaming: the aural breathing-in between Hotel Womb solo and last verse), as well as your hinted-at book about music. is it true? do you take subscriptions?

    You expressed the sleaziness, the druggiddity, the chameleonity and the inherent helplessness, and you told the story as if it was some war from the 18th century. i’d like to read more about Music According To SK.


    (your words about the Demanding Fiend, the second rate shit gave me a lot to think about, ya know…i’m very strict with myself…)

    LOL. No one wants that!! I agree with Fandorin, it’d be dull after too many. But was glad to get some new music to look up, all the same. Listening to aarktika right now.

    would love to read yer 7 wonders of rocknroll, if yer up for that one day.

    thanks for the rundown on the rock doc, will have to check that out. seamy underside indeed. My friend jim gillette of the 80’s hair metal band nitro told me crazy stories of hanging out with poison, and others. he wuz always into health and training, and so never hit the hard stuff, but the stuff he saw was pretty …. disturbing. i’ll stick to the desert anytime.

    “if you love rocknroll

    jokes aside, thanks for the sordid detail. now i don’t think i will have to see it. jagger~~ever the exhibitionist. **ewww~~gross**

    i totally understand about you wanting to abandon the ipod rundown. i can see where that would be a dreaded repeat of just a few short months ago….200+ questions, yikes!! plus, with the ipod list, you would have to scroll through your list and write down what is on there as you’re scrolling, and then include commentary of each one. i can see how that would become tedious and a chore to do. and take up, oh, about 7/8 of your day.

    but, thanks for revealing what you have the past few days. it was a treat. and i’m with ryan, you’ve provided some great suggestions i will definitely check out. 🙂 maybe on the odd occasion you can maybe pick a letter and tell us just a couple of bands in that letter, if and/or when you ever feel up to it.

    hey, no worries…
    you’re gettin’ paid to be you,
    nice work if you can get it,
    but straight a-z
    would be too much work…
    for you and us…
    you gotta drop the bread bombs
    in a selective manner…
    but bread and america
    are kinda in the same boat,
    floating down that river
    in my mind called 1972…
    first year of school,
    mrs. leahy, my art teacher,
    thee stones blaring
    out of my brother’s room,
    dolphins perfect season,
    living at the beach…
    or in the pool…
    fear and loathing
    on the campaign trail
    now shows the dual reality
    of that time…
    and my kids are mirrors…
    ah, 1972, was that the wonder year?
    hmmm, i wonder…
    but bread didn’t really surprise…

    blazing take on the stones film…
    i’m intrigued, in a car crashy/trashy kinda way…
    i watched rivers and tides…
    hemispherically different,
    but highly recommended…

    ok ok ok

    The movie starts with C – thats close enough. I’ve heard a lot about CSB but its hard to find. Im a huge Stones fan and yet never been able to see them in the flesh, in concert that is. Did u get tix to their Enmore gig?!

    Can you loan it to me? I’ll close my eyes at the naughty bits 🙂

    Yeah … leave the C’s for a while.

    You and I have a few A’s and B’s in common but we may part company at the C’s – assuming you don’t take your work home with you. My collection seems to be very C and S heavy – a real pain when, every so often, a new C or S arrives.

    Less than two weeks now until Annies Lane.

    Are you and Chrissy planning some big show stopper at the end?

    Buggered if I can think of a vegetarian duet….

    A segue from “til the cows come home” into “Meat is Murder” (an S) would be a cheery finale. Marty could probably stir up that meat saw whine with one of his effects pedals.

    Hey man, suavo on the stoners. And insightful look into the sounds that shape your life. Always knew there was more out there.
    Look I’m going to be honest here. I havena subscribed due to reactions that the dosh may go to things I help people overcome. I used to believe that it was helpful, but can now reach those points with no input from it. I’m no straight. I just took something out of my life that I felt was holding me back. And I know it was. All people are unique so it may not be of a major concern to others. So be it. What is true for you is true for you. But, I would like to provide you with means to give longevity to your creative genius whether that be art supplies, something for your axe ensemble or a new item for the abode you reside in. I then know that I’m still supporting you and that your artistic muse can flourish n’ prosper for eternity. I don’t hold anything against you for what you choose to do. Again, e-mail me at with a list of stuff you’d like for your arts and I’ll get cracking.
    For 24 yrs you and the Church have been the Chruch to my life. I’d like to continue having it with me for as long as I can.

    P.S. If any of the bloggers are curious as to why Brian Wilson ended up as Steve describes him, go to the link attached to my blogger name.

May I ask, if you, or any fellow fiends are going to see Berlin, for any descriptions/comments you could throw my way?

    Yes, Moonlight Mile….love it, was a Mick Taylor composition, so I’ve read. Taylor added a lot, musically, to that early 70’s period after Brian’s sad demise. It was Brian I idolized when I was a kid in the 60’s, he was super-cool to my adolescent eyes.

    I’ve never seen CSB, but would like to get my hands on a copy. I’ve seen the Stones….but not until the 80’s. Every time they came to Atlanta the shows sold out instantly, so I was always empty-handed.

    Did this film have the famous/mythical candy-bar eating episode?

    Mother of God, I feel like I need a shower after reading that. Just reading it made me feel depressed and dirty…yet I want to see the movie now, the sick voyeur that I am. Thanks Steve – brilliant review…description? Much better than the “C”s if you ask me. Good God. It kinda reminds me of Motley Crue’s bio. Yes, I read it – don’t ask why. I tend to read a lot of bizarre stuff and I don’t even like MC’s ‘music.’ Well now my goal is to get my hands on this flick so I can be even more disgusted. Thanks SK. 😉

    Oh and sue c – Johnette did “Hurting Each Other”??? Wow. Too cool. Well, she would! I’ll have to hunt that down too. Thanks for letting me know!

    A poem…

    I once knew a man who said “I’m going to list out all the songs…
    That live happily on me eye pod, It shouldn’t take very long!”

    However the chap only made it as far as the letter Sea,
    When he realized what a major pain in the arse this would be.

    Listing track after track, half of em’ belonging to N.K.
    Miss Scarlet will be in bloody college by the time we reach the letter “J”

    The daily blogge had already taken on a life of it’s own
    With comments pouring in from Rozelle to Rome

    One fan pleaded “Don’t list out all those em pee three’s!”
    “I’d rather you tell us about Seance, and how that funny snare drum came to be…”

    Personally I’m curious if under “Q” there will be any Queen?
    Of course at “H” you’ll praise Hawkwind, and their silly Silver machine.

    The author was aware that he’d bitten off more than he could chew
    And to that longwinded list of songs, Monsieur Kibey bid Adieu.

    Mother Joyce (!!!) didn’t care so long as her son kept things clean
    And this concludes yet another day on the ole’ Time Being…

    So I bought “Sunburst Finish” today, my first taste of BBD. Pretty quirky, and usually quirky isn’t my thing, but I’ll give it some more spins. “Crying to the Sky” is a great song. List the “C’s” when you feel up to it.

    private with their knobbed walking benches, both the the middle of the gardens,
    swing on the sand retired grocers’ clubs,

    Aural Bliss is a internet radio show on from 10pm until midnight(EST)on Sundays and us listners have been charged with bringing three new folks to the chat room next sunday…or else! since everyone wants to hear new music i thought some of you might like to tune in and hear some music and maybe discover something new.

    Check it out next week at You too SK. Not nearly enough Cherch on their roster but you can’t have it all.

    Hey Steve – i’m getting ready to pack the wife and kids into the car and do the summer holiday road trip, Melb to Pt Elliot, just south of Adelaide.

    I’m a little flustered as the kids are gunna send me off the deep end after 10 minutes and I gotta go nearly 800kms. Hey I’m a DAD – I can do it – just ask the kids!

    Hey i’m off to see Colin Hay on Friday night @ The Corner – He’s a great performer….

    Reminds me a little of the vaudeville SK as he is a funny fella….

    He sings a great song called “its a wonderful world” The opening line is “I like swimming in the sea”

    Take care of all that you got SK. Stay smiling skipper – Your driving.

    If you get tired at C, then you should not use alphabetical order. Start with the most played, groovin, hip and hot of the moment stuff and work your way down there if you still got steam.

    If all people went from A-Z all the time, then only Air and Beatles would sell anything. They would be veeeery tired when they get to TTTThe Chrucru or SSSSteve Kilbo.

    white rekcus ophelia | 8 January 2007 at 7:13 am #

    Seas, the great roar,
    that shattered one of sweet madness
    has murmured its ballad to the tree
    and anthem falls from the golden stars.


    o pale mine

    I come to you, so silent in the night
    so mans starlight
    you come seeking, in the night,
    the flowers snow does to a fire;
    your great visions there will be mine,
    mine, mine, mine, mine, all the wind,
    your emotional rescue

    yeah, the other night, will be your knight
    in shining armour
    coming to you escapes a small rustle of wings;

    – a mysterious ophelia mine

    you will be mine, you will be mine,
    all floats like a great lily;
    floats very slowly,
    that spoke to you in rumors to your dreaming mind;
    it was your heart freedom!

    what a dream, oh poor crazed lad!
    you melted times
    shivering willows weep on her
    thousand twisting hair
    strange nothing I can say
    nothing I can do
    to change your blue
    her great veils rising and falling
    in a wreath
    that he has seen on the water, stealthy, so Pekinese

    ill be your savior, steadfast and true
    ill down the long black river.
    for more than a thousand mornings at your knees!

    heaven! love!
    yeah, baby, I’m crying over you

    don’t you whew
    yes, you could be mine
    tonight and every night
    I come to your emotional rescue
    ill come to you

    – it was the winds descending rescue
    you will be mine, you will be mine, child
    low voices of better freedom.

    it was a breath of the sighs of nights;

    it was the voice to him as baby
    I’m like a child baby
    child yeah, I’m lying in her long veils…

    – in the far-off woods you ruffled water-lilies
    – are sighing around her;
    at lying ophelia!
    beautiful as snow!
    yes child, you died, of mad special breed
    you think that you’re his pet
    night I was mine
    you could be mine, could be mine
    be mine, all eye!


    – and the poet says that in her long veils
    white ophelia floating, like a witch dissolve in sleep
    ill be your savior, steadfast emotional rescue

    yeah, you should be mine, mine, know animal quiet
    ill be your savior, steadfast

    the promises were never made to keep?
    you can’t get out
    you’re just a poor girl in a rich song of nature
    too human and too soft;
    it was strangled your words
    – and fearful infinity terrified the desert
    – with a fine arab charger

    on the years her and true
    ill come to your emotional rescue
    ill come to crying
    like a child, yeah, I was crying
    crying like a pale knight, a poor madman
    who one april that you term true
    ill come to your emotional rescue
    ill come to your mind
    I’m so in love with you
    you’re too deep emotional rescue

    I was dreaming last night
    last from sound the mort.

    for more than a great lily. mine
    I will be your knight in shining armour
    riding dreaming
    how you’d be mine, but I was emotional night, crying
    crying baby, yeah I’m crying
    yeah I’m like a calm black water where the stars are sleeping
    white shoulder,
    the rushes lean over her wide, dreaming brow. evening breeze.

    the wind kisses her breasts and your child, like a child
    like a child

    you think you’re years sad ophelia
    has passed, a white phantom, handsome

    ha i like the story of how the song cocksucker blues was recorded, just to get out of a contract, the band owed one single to decca, so they recorded a song that could never be released. I love ‘fingerprint file’ myself and ’emotional rescue.’

    i don’t think i can wrangle out of my commitments for friday and saturday, so i apologise that i cannot attend the play. i’d love to see you act again and the play does sound rather excellent.
    I hope someone from the tv is in the audience and signs you up for your own show though.

    For those interested in getting CS Blues I was able to dig up a couple of places selling it. For links click on my user name which will take you to my blog which has clickable links to these places. I’d put the links here, but I always manage to fuck up clickable links in the comments section…. 🙁

    What a vivid portrait!
    Love the description of Jagger as he inhabits one charcter after another; sounds like some kind of medium.
    It’s one thing to know that depravity like this goes on but quite another to actually see it. Bring on the demystification!
    So where can I get the film ??
    You could organise a special screening of it at the Red Hill Harvest Festival short film night
    …or maybe not.

    I love your champagne & red cordial idea – yummmmm.
    Champers is also nice with midori and maybe even blue curacao, which I reckon is like blue alcoholic lemonade
    (constant in opal, ultramarine).
    If you add red cordial to that you could call it “creature from the black lagoon…”

    Only started reading this blog in October so there is a huge backlog to be delved into…but I am nothing if not a completist.
    Read the stuff from when Grant died and it made me cry.
    (And all those gun nuts!)
    It took me a long time to realise this but a good idea anytime your back siezes up around the shoulder-blades
    is to also treat the heart chakra
    – rose oil 3% in jojoba
    is penetrating for grief…


    p.s. great link, Don Joe – fascinating stuff, esp about Kurt Cobain & Vivian Leigh.

    Eek! Sounds gruesome..personally, I’ve never liked the Stones. It really does blow my mind they’re still alive tho, while such as Jim I guess there’s just also a humongous amount of luck involved.

    CSTCoach | 8 January 2007 at 3:46 pm #

    To those who commented on my pic, thanks… i guess… Was never something i paid much attention to, they all usually come out skewed. old one was from the header of a martial art article i published, was supposed to look leering and maniacal. new one was taken at jack kerouac’s gravesite, for an article on literary travel.

    On to more important matters – someone above mentioned the need for a new SK solo album. I agree!! It’s been a long time since Dabble. Seems Isidore 2 and Mimesis are nearly there, so something should be coming soon. Another solo project would be great once those are done. Hell, another Freaky Conclusions would be cool too. [feel like i’m cracking the whip… does he work for us now???lol]

    Let’s face it, there’s only one C REALLY worth listening to anyway. The rest just ain’t in the same league.
    My bro catches the Stones whenever they gig in England, but I confess that I refuse to pay £100+ for what’s become little more than a tribute band.
    The thing I’ve loved about The Church is how you keep pushing back the boundaries, each album topping the last – demanding attention, stretching the imagination. The race to learn all the words to the latest release before you land in blighty, so that I can sing every last word. Yes, your trip through the back catalogue is great but what makes me most proud is the on-going quality of your new stuff.
    Long may you continue, SK. Yer a genius matey.
    love you more,

    Dave M
