did glynnis johns just walk out on me?

hadda a cold cold swim in the sea
winter has returned in spades
bondi looking empty n deserted n down on its luck
hadda a half hour massage
sciatica says massage lady
are they a spin off from megadeth?
i ask my mouth full of towel
im face down
shes working on my back
outside the door i can hear the pacific ocean pounding
and rain hammering the pool
she finds knots and she leans on em
they try n squirm away but shes on their case
just in the small of my back some nerves misfiring
shes uncompromising
trying to break up the knots….
i listened to for your pleasure by roxy music
as i walked thru the rain
a lotta impromptu type material in there
sorta have a blow n stick some words on it
it really struck me today
bogus man
the last track
every dream home
very laissez-faire music
but i never saw it as a kid buying the stuff
i never saw the way people wrote things
they seemed to have fallen out of the air to me
now i can hear it they way it happened
a one note jam n an impro vocal
bang! theres 10 minutes gone on side 2
people’ll interpret it
give ya the benefit of the doubt
cmon yer bryan ferry n its 1973…!
we’re all caught up in this thing
its rushing headlong
intelligent glamourous stars have broken the hegemony
of the prog n heavy behemoths
and little stevie kilbey turned 19
but he still aint written a decent song yet
he just wallows around in 10th rate versions
he cant figure out how they do it yet
the double tracking and the reverberation
the way it all has to fit together
i didnt know you could have a one note jam
throw some words on top n youd have “bogus man”
because ……
n then
i figured it out
i also figured out intentionality
i figured out ambiguity
i figured out harmony n melody
i figured out recording n mixing n arranging
i figured out how to collaborate
i figured out how to do it all on my own
my own self perpetuating well of song
that will never
can never dry up
my own relationship with my own muse
before all that
i was outside looking in
i had my nose pressed up against the window pane
i bought roxy music albums
i thought they were great
i couldnt see i could ever do it myself
1976 -1979 was my hermit era
in a spare room
i took the process apart on my 4 track
in a vacuum
no friends or supporters
no one to listen but my brothers
in a backwater of this world
employed but not working
at night i come home to townhouse in rivett
in the spare bedroom on freezing cold nights
or boiling hot afternoons
chipping away at the puzzle
like a painter working on perspective
i was buying and devouring large quantities of music
i was driven
i was obsessed with it
i imagined what it was like
to make a great record which people would love
yet no one appeared and opened any doors
the people who did hear what i was doing
were puzzled unimpressed n disinterested
i entered contests but had my cassettes returned
every record company in england rejected me
sent me back my stuff
but i loved it too much to stop
i believed in myself so unshakeably
i knew i wasnt the very best
i knew i wasnt the most original
i knew i wasnt the most talented
or any of that
but the sheer awfulness of most of the stuff
being made outside of the greats…..
no one seemed to do what i wanted to do
i loved loadsa music but i never felt it was superior
to what i could do……
deep down
what i wanted
and never could have achieved
was a fusion of all the very best best stuff in rock
as i saw it
enos new discoveries
bowies coolness n voices
dylans intelligence n hipness
beatle boys music
stones image n lifestyle
bolan otherwordliness n childlike naivety
so you see there was a lofty ambi ambi ambition
for a start
if you ever hear those various bootleg records of mine
like preformation n early demos(imaginitive title)
(and they werent demos neither.)..
anyway if you hear on those collections of early songs
i was trying to hit the eno button a lot harder
but eventually market forces led to it being all channeled
into the church
but i was as much an electro rocker as a popsmith
i was doing long ambient bits n noisey things
and everything
it was strange to one day wake up
n realise i suddenly was representing all things sixties
what about kraftwerk n la dusseldorf
what about lou reed n ultravox
ah everything got pushed thru the nozzle
i noticed some people were musicians not stars
i noticed some stars were not musicians
i noticed myself not much of a star or musician
but i loved it
and my love had unlocked some pieces for me
my diligence had pierced musics armour
and my intelligence had wormed its way in
and it started to get rapidly easier for me
i call myself a genius sometimes on here
half mocking half serious
but its not musical genius
not as you would know it
but a genius for recognition
in a mess of sound
i will recognize
in a mess of words
i will recognize
i can assess n decide rapidly
i can detect potential a mile off
i put my processes to work
i had the ability to make great songs appear
apparently out of the blue
but it was the processes
my modi operandi
they were bound to write something
that someone
would like sooner or later
or what…..?
i am the time being
these are my journals…..

    Better than Laika…
    better than the other guitarists

    better than the other guitarists

    Fascinating, a one blog biography or mini-auto biography. I don’t mean to pick at a sore spot cause I’m sure you don’t get any coin for it but I just watched a phenomenal video on You Tube of Steve and the boys doing Hotel Womb from (looks like) late nineties. Boy would I pay for a live vid of that quality. Nice to see a little sample. Could it be wrangled? I wonder. Anyway, I’m joining the pay pal thing-a-roo today. Thanks Killa.

    This friend of mines dad used to produce a tv variety show in the 70s. Of all the people who appeared on the show he said Brian Ferry was the one who most impressed. Said he was the coolest professional he’d ever encounted. Knew what camera angles he wanted , how the lighting should be yet went about getting what he wanted like a perfect gentleman. He also said he smoked joints like cigarettes. Somehow thats how i had imagined Mr Ferry to be like. I was a bit of a fan of Mr Ferry in the eighties. I was really into bass guitar and Brian 80’s records have great rhythms.(particularly Bete Noir) Intricate dreamy layered stuff with just a dash of white boy funk. Saw him live in 87 and he didn’t dissapoint. Did some very early Roxy stuff as an enchore too.
    I think ol Brians a perfect model for how a pop star can age gracefully. Bowies im still hip with now trip tuned me off after a point.

    Nevets I’m glad to hear your self proclaimations of genius arn’t serious.
    I’m so sick of biting my lip when people use that word.
    I mean it’s simply amazing the explosion of genius weve had in these modern times.
    In the old days geniuses did things like design flying machines centuries before there required tecnology, compose timeless symphonies whilst deaf, Come up with theories on space and time which turn science on it’s head.
    Nowdays you can be a genius at anything!,Weve got genius spin bowlers,DJs,footballers,snow boarders,bong suckers you name it.
    That word has so lost its meaning i wish people would stop using it.

    Oh dear, i do belive i’ve just slipped into a rant.. Sorry folks

    I have incrementally channelled my adolescent obsession with sex to an obsession with all acts of creation, formation and genesis.

    Turns out it’s not the sweaty frotting I was interested in at all, just the potential for mundane miracles.

    I am pleased you had the drive to persist in your calling. If you hadn’t you’d just have to go through the whole thing again the next time around, so well done for getting it out of the way. And like a particle smashing into another particle at close to the speed of life, the curly bits that bounce out of the epicentre are pleasing to the senses. Onwards and upwards, Illyrian.

    As for myself, well I keep up the fight… the payoff for ‘artistic freedom’ is that no-one ever listens. The artist is free to go and fuck himself. That’s the trade-off. Ever was it so.

    It’s not going to stop me from churning out the misses, though.

    I primarily listen to and all post 1992 Church and Steve Kilbey material commencing with Priest=Aura. Also love Jack Frost, all of Steve’s solo CDs, Isidore and Starfish. I still hear The Byrds, John Lennon, Pink Floyd (Barrett and Gilmour) in SKs vocals. Don’t hear Bowie or Bolan. Roxy Music is a great band but vastly below The Church. Bryan Ferry supports the hunting and killing of animals. So does his son. Not very cool but he is a sublime crooner. Can’t take that away from him.

    Fascinating insight.
    If market forces led to it all being channelled into the Choich, does this mean you see yon Church as a bit of a compromise?
    As a fan of your art I see “you” stamped over EVERYTHING you do…Church, solo, JF, IS, Mim, TTB, poetry, painting. It’s all part of the wonderful body of work you’ve shared.
    And thanks that you have shared it all.

    one of my favorite blogs by you…ever…it connects to the teenager i was…sitting in my room listening to hours of music…trying to figure out how they did what they did…whether it was the church, love and rockets, or my mom’s beatles records, or a hundred other things…learning, analyzing, filing away for future reference. always deciding very quickly on what i didn’t like. and figuring out that some of the things i ended up loving the most had to sometimes grow on me…that great wasn’t always instant…sometimes the songs challenged me. then connecting to my twenties…where i started really playing in bands and trying to “make it” while still making art…not just product. and keep in mind the learning, analyzing, and filing away for future reference continued on and still does…hope that never stops. then connecting to now…married…kids…still at it though. where my band…brand new in band years…finally the right combination of people…just finished our first record. happy…yes…proud…yes, but we simply just want people to hear it…not because we think we’re the best musicians to ever pick up instruments…far from it. i’ll always love other people’s music more than mine. but hear it because we poured ourselves into it…cared. but i personally have no illusions of making it at this point…would love it of course! but at this time i’ll be happy knowing somebody’s listening and maybe likes it. anyway…you got me thinking…obviously.

    take care.

    I had a massage a few times, yes they do find the knots and wreak pain upon them in attempting to dissolve their mass. Ouch.

    Your well is indeed deep and constantly fresh – I’ve been amazed and delighted through the years that it has not dried up, that is your strength.

    And, I for one am glad that your diligence into divining the process released the vast catalog of songs that have captured my imagination, challenged my perception, validated and altered my moods, and kept me coming back often for more and more – and I have not been disappointed.

    You’re one of a kind, TB. What kept you motivated in the early years, after all the rejections and closed doors? I’ve always been fascinated by artists who are apparently fueled by sheer talent or determination, and reaping little reward at the time.

    Thanks very much for that glimpse into your early process of mastery. I enjoyed that.

    I’ve studied that sorta thing a bit as part of my research into peak performance, coaching, etc. and its a common trait of genius, of those who exhibited great originality or brought something new or revolutionary to their craft – they all picked apart what came before, studied it obsessively, built up a pool of experience that formed the basis of their intuition – a vast field of knowledge that their subconscious could then tap.

    its a process that i’ve also tried to follow in my pursuit of mastery in writing. i’m glad to read about yours in so much detail, it inspires me, confirms to me that i’m on the right track, and gives me a few new ideas to consider too. All that in a daily blog! 🙂

    Thanks druid.

    how is it that such a revealing and straight from the heart post could be met with such vitriol?

    has intelligent discourse elluded us?

    Hello Steven…

    Just chiming in to say that your blogs from today and yesterday have been two of my all time favorites.

    And yes, I did pick up on the “ambi ambi ambition” reference. You’re a sneaky ole’ devil. O.k., enough about “transference.” Take care of yourself.

    You deserve to proud of yourself
    All this music you’ve given and taken
    out of love.
    If you don’t love it, how could I?
    You’re exhilerating as usual,
    Mimesis makes me want to watch and listen to 2001, A Space…
    You didn’t write a symphony by the time you were eighteen? You tried so hard at failure!
    Yes, genx- I like some classical, especially chamber music- it makes me think of some shoe-gaze.

    Today’s blogisode: conversations with the passed. *-) Amusing again. Thanks for mentioning e.hemingway, he made it easier to suffer through english class back in middle school!

    AA…it seems as though we share a love of sublime things!…there is a rare quality and integrity to classical music,that I really appreciate,as well…it’s an easy to place honesty that flows as an undercurrent within this music,that,whilst,YES,is exhilirating,gives peace and a dreamy sense of floating through the air{surrounded by a safety net/or with a co-pilot} are most excellent AA !..looking forward to today’s blog SK! to you!..gen xxx

    The distinctness of your wonderful memories is awe inspiring….
    Oh the love,
    I remember my first stereo
    and how well i began to tape
    stuff off the radio and borrow my uncles albums..
    I would stay up all night listening to bowie, beatles, ramsey lewis, the doors,the cure, smiths etc.. loud as hell into my unsuspecting lil ears.. I fell deep in love with my night sanctuary of so many colors full of reasons to scream.. I became a lover of sound, of emotion, of rock and blues, of soul and substance..
    only to accidentally pull the headphones out and a loud blare of sound would soar throughout the 3am sleep..oops

    Those nights are forever and always..

    I once read that you write the lyrics to all your songs in 20 minutes. If it takes longer than 20 minutes, you just throw the idea out.
