how to make this memory stick

2 new songs coming to you subscribers for you and only for you

2 brand new hot off the press recordings

made for a collaboration with dave kenworthy

all done by me everything the lot at home here using logic

two random snapshots indicative of nothing except potential

its trippy stuff

its electronic and organic

its coming down the line to skpers next week

its the weird n wonderful stuff you’d be expecting me to do

art speaks in tongues is an epic changing piece with spoken word

love everything you come across is the sun drenched stoned lazy rocker

this is what you get with me at the helm

hope you gonna dig it

and see the exhibition at the vivid festival in sydney

let me know what you think

i’m gonna start hitting skp with at least one or 2 songs aweek

instead of making an album

i’m gonna give it ya like this

while its so fresh

you will be getting some good stuff coming down the line

real soon

    Very unique way of sharing what is newly created…
    Grand luck for you and this new venture…
    Sadly I will.miss out, impossible to join with wife wondering why ???
    A home filled with priceless SK and Church material and I want more…Haha…
    Could never explain the value to her….sorry…
    Guess I missed out on this….again…
    But…I have to respect her, lots of love between us…
    Lots of love and well wishes to you…

    Yeah…I know…How can I spend $$$ at The Church store and
    other goodies yet can’t donate a $$$ to the cause…
    I tried and tried to expain it, over and over…
    She doesn’t understand, cannot fault her on that…
    Guess it wasn’t meant to be…
    Still love ya anyways and I believe its a great marketing concept…

    Good on you for keeping the SK8ers fulfilled…

        Sounds like a plan…

        Whatever hapns in my incredible city over the next 3-5 days , and is televised across the globe for the entire world to see…please understand this – I am all for the freedom to assemble and peaceful protests but when shitfucks crawl out of their parents basments and put masks over their faces and claim to be raising awareness to the wrongdoings of international leaders and cause damage to innocent peoples property and businesses that they work very hard to provide for their families and children…it becomes the ultimate hypocrisy.

        Please Please Please …let everyone be safe and on this international stage, make a statement with the power of words – not bricks, pipes, rocks, fires, bullets , etc…. which only can result in injury and the loss of precious human life on both sides of the argument(s).

        Please pray for all of us…

      Can’t come up with $2.00 per week? Man up and grow a pair Daz

        BROKEN TOYS AND HEROS | 19 May 2012 at 8:22 pm #

        Hey BB-
        I have a hugenormous pair , I don’t need to grow any….I will be celebrating 15 years on Monday with my beautiful wife…we have faired so well in a climate, marriage, that is difficult to navigate with 2 children with a huge difference in age …..and me, a disabled man….with multiple physical challenges….I have more than enough money….I think Steve could attest to that with the lovely housewarming gift my family sent him – the post alone was $50….
        I guess everyone but Andy may b missing the point….it isn’t the cash, its the concept….I totally agree that SKP is worth the $100 or $2 a week….its worth more than that !!!!!
        My wife doesn’t understand its value, I will try harder to plead my case. She can’t focus on the benefit….her argument is $100 a year is steep when time goes by quickly and I would b paying already for a second helping , she feels that its a bit greedy…..I do not….
        She’s even more upset now that she was brought into this distorted communication and is made to look cheap, she is certainly not and is a very generous and giving soul….
        I was polite and articulate ….and gracious to Steve in complimenting his marketing venture and always wish him well ….
        I guess it is what it is….but let’s leave family members out of it and any ridicule, I don’t think Big Bopper or anyone rose would like to targeted for name calling or judgement passed onto ….
        I chose not to retaliate for now – because of this explanation and out of respect for u BB, Steve, and everyone else……
        I truly believe when the ‘shop’ on this site adds products for followers to indulge in ( shirts, more prints, signed collector items, poetry books …etc…) ….Steve will see how great of a customer I can be, ask Rajani.and the multiple times we have concluded business together….the more products , the more appeal for many to purchase and proudly display and further market SK and all that he creates…

        I can afford it easily, I am in a great marriage where decisions are made by both individuals out of respect ….that’s why Laura and I are celebrating 15 years whereas so many relationships don’t understand that type of commitment and burn out so quickly….

        It’s great – what ur doing for all these people Steve…I just cannot be one of them at this time…
        Good luck with everything, and thanks Andy…a true diamond gem and please check out The Failed ….a true classic trio of artists led by a great musician – Mr. Andy Lee…someone I am very proud of to call friend…

    Nothing in this for me, unfortunately – I sneak in here on a work computer as it is & can’t download fuck! Great news for others though and a great idea all round, I think. But I really wanna hear the mercurial dream soundtracks that you & fantasti candy could concoct for us – don’t deny us, guys!

    For those still awaiting their Isidore, I will be organising download codes this week, emailed directly to you by us. Stand by for the two new tracks as I will be sending out those codes after the Vivid Festival launch night. (See ‘news’ section for more details).

    thanks Steve
    two a week sounds too good to be true…
    and on the eight day did god create the digital world…a new computer and a ‘better’ attitude will have to happen to keep up
    have never downloaded music
    organic is going to see/hear ‘live’ music…and when that ceases to be, will somebody please just shoot me…a bullet would be better than a slow death
    however I do really love your idea as its from you to us (SKPers)…straight from the heart (your heart that you/we all strugle to keep pure)
    and like your poetry, gives new meaning to having a reason to turn a computer
    now, after all that rabble…will share a quip from Anton at last nights show… someone requested a song
    “I’m 44 and don’t do requests…if you want requests go to Hungry Jacks”.
    looking forward to the Vivid Fest on friday…yippee!!!
    take care
    with love

        hello Steve…way, way over there
        happened to be sitting next to a couple who spotted Anton cruising about near the mixing board before he started. At a rough guess he could pass for 40 easily…most photos I’ve ever seen don’t really do him justice

    now… this is why there’s reason to feel so special being an SKPr… one or two a week! ah! …wow!!! thank you. (indicative has always been a favorite word – though seems only get to read it in books from a prior era any longer/silly, I know but – it does still make me smile when I get to read it – and so current too.)

    Just an idea–a t-shirt with SK artwork of course, available for sale to all readers/commenters. I think this could be an ultra-cool item and I would wear one with pride. 🙂

      wow i hope there will be a monsters n mirages shirt (the fall in love painting)
      also… the crazy shirts outfit — hawaii based i believe — makes shirts dyed in beer, chocolate, coffee, even volcano ash… how about a p=a shirt, plain white with aura lyrics — all the “…” = “…” phrases — dip dyed in tasmanian liquid opium…? dip dying produces such lovely color gradient… no, i’m not on anything remarkable… wonder what color it was anyway…

          aw c’mon… just wanted to know what color it was…
          hope everything goes as planned there for you
          from my recent experience of getting over 12-hr jet lags —
          – it sometimes helps to not sleep the night before the flight
          – then try to synch the timing of your inevitable crash with the time zone you’re going to… and hope for the best
          for some reason going back was worse…
          all the best to you, wonderful being
          good luck
