hi de ho you little fiendss
my darling pigs
my children of the knight
readers and reedcutters
oh you wanted some sense….
ok
i spent the day goofing off
driving round with nk n lil sk
sitting in cafes
watching lil sk roll down grassy slopes
watching her chuck sticks in the harbour
watching her chase the birdies
all the usual stuff
she bangs her heavy head a cuppla times
oh she has a big head stuffed full of brains
like the scarecrow in wizard of oz
i watch a doco on triffids
that im interviewed in
hmmm
wow
what a weird thing seeing yaself on the telly
coming over like a slightly scruffy professor
being interviewd about a new archaelogical dig or something
lisping slightly it sounds like
oh no!
have a listen to antenna on starfish where those “people”
put such a heavy “de-esser” on my voice
it sounds like i am lisping
oh yeah
ive hurt my lower back lifting the bumbper into her carseet
damn
cmon ryan roll out yer lower back vid please
(hes curing me over the internet
if i do but stop and wonder
tis indeed a marvel!)
jesus now i feel a hundred n fifty 2
we are all one slip away from injury
at any minute
a twist
a stumble
a pull
a tensing
a jerk
whoa boy
you got yerself a bad back…
praying it goes away
i thought
in my hubris
that yoga would protect me
but no it didnt
maybe it did and i’ll never know how much
i feel all the springs gone outta my step
i cant lift the bumbper n shes takin’ it personal
oh didja see that scar on my forehead
wow you can really see it there
where the evil spirit left me in 2001
it left that gaping wound
where my third eye now sometimes can be seen
the sea was a lovely lovely blue today
and i was reminded of my life as a sailor
that i lived once maybe
a long long long dream ago
oh yeah
just as i am now
on the seas of abyssinia
or ferrying across a black scandanavian lake
or paddling a canoe
the sea the sea the sea
always back to this changing changeless wonder
container of things undreamt of
deep to unknown depths
warm n shallow
endless and dark
the sea
poor canberra so far from the sea
no wonder i was not feeling myself
canberra where i took shape
so much groovier it is now than then
i remember a hot night in 1975
i get a call from a girl i know
says come over here im babysitting
i have just bought horses by patti smith
and station to station by bowie
(now someone contradict that please)
i look in the mirror of my datsun 1000
its me
all that hair
oh a pimple on chinny chin chin
its hot n dry here in summer
i feel like im in the wrong place
but i cant determine the feeling
i hate it here but i havent actually realised
thats what it is
its a sterile treeless (then) pre fab town
chock full o “straights”
who dont understand a bohemian( like me)
one bit
but i dont know im a bohemian really
i havent said that word to myself
im obssessed by music
i only think of music
i really like pattis record
i like seeing a woman dressed like her on the cover
i like her words n attitude
strangely enuff now its hard to listen to it
bowies record i loved some of it
some i thought was just ok ..eg tvc 15 or whatever
but golden years i loved
my shuffle has played 3 dionne warwick/burt bacharach songs
in about 2 hours
are they trying to tell me something
my shuffle always plays beatles
but rarely stones…..?
the clientele are on a lot
scott walker gets a good innings too
shuffle
god a whole new way of listening or what…
shakes it all up
you get to know your collection
i got 12000 songs in there
thats a bit of music
oh anaesthesia comes on
murky aint it
i hit ff on the remote quick
on comes …
oh i know this…
i like it so far
hmmmmmm

    anaesthesia is murky, but soars from murkity…i love it. i remember the day in 1998 when i bougt it… a new church album, with koppes back…i bought that record in a tiny store, and the clerk raised his eyebrows..oh you like the church? me: uhu – clerk: they re my favourite band but you re the first to buy something in my little store. and i couldnt resist and asked him to give it a spin in the shop, he said, with pleasure, and then the stoned radio started singing and anaesthesia thundered through the store. when the background vocals in the chorus repetition started singing, i was the happiest person in germany – – it was rarely played live, but rocked in berlin..

    based on the synopsis of your day, i would have say the preponderance of Dionne and Burt songs is a signifier that you are indeed having a groovy and dreamy day… even with a yanked back this is possible, i know…
    i’m a bit spinally crooked as of late, but still groovin’ and dreamin’, best as i can…

    Funny and oddly, as it was then, in november, I remember having a magical time with my Cathar fairy queen in a theater, watching Scoop by Woody Allen (Sid Waterman “Splendini !”), another lanterna magica maestro along with and Bergman (déjà vu). I mused about woody tricks, wondering what would think the time being of this bEastwood like Hugh Jackman (Peter Lyman) from Sydney, partly because of his vilain role and many faceted energy. An actor new to me, though childhood friend Rodolphe, compared me a few years ago to wolverine. Hollywood exploiting marvel heroes is a fake. Still, the prestige only drew my attention when i saw its poster in the streets. Since batman begins was unbearable, i did not trust this other mr Nolan picture, although i was hooked by Insomnia. Now, I’ve just seen the prestige trailer and I get the picture, like many verse eerie, even your desire to cast a real magical flick.
    I missed a few rendez-vous, nonetheless Mr Ferry was also dylanesque on stage.

    I like goofing-off days, they’re sublime, things slow down and come into focus. I wouldn’t like any place with no trees, no forest (Canberra) and hot – not my cuppa tea.

    I loved Anaesthesia, as I’d just recovered from busted ankle surgery and in hospital, had 2 days of morphine drip. I clicked that dispenser like a TV remote and didn’t realize the nurse had a record of how often. After receiving a scolding, I talked her into shortening the intervals. Two days of vivid dreams and narcosis holiday. This song brought it back so well, “behind the veil is a sea – only entered into chemically” ah, yes. I also love The Great Machine, such potent lyrics, dreamy tones, melancholy acoustic…excellent.

    Never noticed any lisping of any sort. You look a bit “Che Guevara” in the military shirt. Start a revolution, let’s form a new country.

    Does anybody know if the song Locust has anything to do with animal rights. I hate it when SK refers to himself as being old. He is amid his artistic and musical prime and he is a very robust health-nut. I just purchased the new Silverchair CD. I played it twice and so far I can’t stand it. Hopefully, it will be a creeper, but is vastly inferior to Diorama.

    I’d just started university in ’98 when I got HOB. Played it endlessly throughout that autumn, so as soon as those electronics start, it brings it all back to me. Wonderful stuff.
    But yeah, it would’ve been even better with Lizard on it.

    Brien Comerford | 25 May 2007 at 3:37 pm #

    If SK does a movie it should be a documentary about hellish slaughterhouses, commercial fisheries, hunting, trapping and poaching. His sondtrack would be poignant and grievous. I noticed the name Peter Baumann. There was a Peter Baumann who was a vital and talented member of Tangerine Dream in their wonderful 1970s era.

    we are all the same. but some of us are different. i wonder what it must feel like. Steve; this little blog of yours gives us a view of your life. i guess we continue to read longing to get a clue about genius. you may look in the mirror every morning and see the same everyday guy that i see too. but the difference is that what you have said and sung has somehow struck a chord with others. we don’t love you because others do… we love you because what you have said and sung has rang true with us. you may not be a hero to the masses, but you are a hero to us. don’t ever stop doing what you are doing, because i (and many others) find what you come up with everyday to be inspiring and uplifting. even when you’re on a down-note. we chime in with that too. we get there too. we love you, not because we idolize you or something… but because we see you as a brother. (who maybe had a better knack for expressing himself…) just don’t ever stop speaking your mind. there are too few voices of reason in this world nowadays…

    I used to have some back trouble every now and then after exercising or, just as you, lifting my kid.
    I finally got smart and listened to my wife who told me to start stretching before going on my runs or doing my other exercises.
    For stretching, I do fairly basic stuff: the pushing-against-the-wall to stretch the hamstrings, the reaching-for-the-toes and also the hands-on-hips-lean-from-side-to-side stretch.
    It works. Haven’t had a lick of back trouble since I started doing that.
    Also, the last time I did have a back ache, I did the aforementioned stretches and the pain went away within a matter of hours.

    I hope your back is better soon. Something about having little kids rejuvenates you, while at the same time beating your body to hell 🙂

    I hurt my back the same way with Emma last year, and my knee. It’s mostly gone away now, hopefully yours will too.

    BTW – my Ipod doesn’t shuffle well either, it plays some of the same artists over and over and never plays others.

    And what’s wrong with Anaesthesia? I love that song.

    Just my humble opinion…I thought the vocal effects as well as the guitar effects on Starfish were absolutely exquisite. From what I read…I understand it was not a pleasant experience making that record. But I’m reminded of the words of Sir Paul when asked about the less than stellar conditions in which Band On The Run was created. He replied…”out of adversity came a really good album.”

    Starfish…a musical epiphany for me.

    I know you don’t like HOB ‘cos of where you were at in your life.
    But creatively it was like a re-birth and it remains one of my top 5 albums of all time….mind you 3 of the other 4 are your too.
    I think the guy in the piccie is a gardener to be fair to him.
    I don’t have an i-pod so I can’t random shuffle so I just walk to the ol’ hi-fi and go: church/church/kilbey/cope/church/church/kilbey/bunnymen/church/church/kilbey/genesis(gabriel only)/church/church etc. I prefer it that way. I have great taste in music, but 12,000 songs might just lead to something awful and regrettable. I’d almost prefer a bad relationship to bad music.

    Yep, I dig that little old “Anaesthesia” tune you mentioned. There is just something about the tone of Pete’s guitar on that one…that warm, but brilliant hum from a well-played strat. (At least that’s what it seems like to me) I don’t recall ever seeing you guys play that one though. In fact, the very first show I saw (of The Church) was when I first moved up to Chicago, I found out you guys were comin’ to The House of Blues!! Wow, what a blessing that was…set the tone for my whole Chicago experience I think. Like, there I was a new kid on the block, didn’t know a soul, but my old familiar friends came to play for me and a whole crowd of kindred spirits…awesome. I’ll never forget that opening, even though it was the Holo of Baal tour, it was Priest=Aura…dug it, cool lighting, full electric, just what the doctor ordered. It was a time in my life (one of a few I suppose) when I needed some serious encouragement. Thank you so much for that…for being there, for being “my” special group, and teaching me a whole lot about life, love and the universe.

    Yeah, Kilbo, those de-essers are weird. The guys in my group used to just have a blast with that one, I’d walk in to the control room and they’d be pissing themselves listening to yours truly sound like I was ready to march in a “pride” parade!! It was pretty funny actually. That reminds me, I need to keep hounding this guy to at least let me have some of those files. I can’t even believe how things have turned out. (long story, but not too interesting really, just ridiculous) This is what heppens when you put too much trust in certain people. Then again, I think I need to let sleeping dogs lie. Remember we were talking about “melencholia” the other day? Life’s too short,eh?

    Anyway, much love to you and the fambley. Take care of that back…just as long as you don’t herniate any discs, you’ll be OK.
    Fiendss, P+L to you all as well.

    congrats on the 600th post. been a pleasure to read. i made some new fans recently for tc. it seems the one song that everyone new to band loves is “tranquility”. I’ve been thinking about HOB lately…indeed a real triumph, and always one of my favorites. i’ve got a hilarious cover version of “glow worm” on video to show you sometime…from my wedding. remember that story?
    take care, and get well!

    had a surf on youtube for the triffids docu, but couldn’t find anything. if anyone does, could ya post the link?

    i really liked anasthesia. i remember when i saw HOB in the record store. i was working this awful temp job, on the road in another city, saving up for my first big travel plan. the guy i worked with was shopping for xmas presents and we stumbled across it. i didn’t know it was coming out. pretty fucking happy to see it, i tell ya. there were some great tracks on that. Louisiana is a favourite too.

    sk if you get a mini tripod you can use the timer setting in the camera which would give you 30 seconds or so to get into different and beguiling positions from which to do your photographic self portraits … the mind boggles at the possibilities therein does it not

    you do have a slight “r” lisp which i think is adorable partly because i have one too

    b.bon to be perfectly honest i think we were separated at birth

    It’s good to just goof off sometimes. Go for it! Car seats might be good for child safety, but I can certainly imagine getting kids in them can wreak havoc on adult’s backs. Hope your pain eases up soon.

    I love the pics and especially the subversive patches. Someone’s gotta do it, and you do it so well. 🙂

    now you’ve torn it SK, skipping Anaesthesia…
    That song and album obviously means a lot to a lot of people, me included. It was the blissful introduction to a whole new wave of Church bliss. How many wondered if the Church were over, (again and again), or if the your best was over… Then to hear that (adjectives fail me)brought so much happiness… ‘IT’ was back.
    auguri per gli 600 blog.

    “and second isidore half finished but will be one day” – SK

    You had me at “second Isidore.” I’m trying to pick myself up off the floor.

    I maintain that I preferred The Prestige to Illusionist, however, since you seem to be more into mystery endings, I think you’ll prefer The Illusionist. Everyone’s got the things they like/dislike about flicks. And the filmmaking industry desperately needs creative writing talent. I’m so tired of seeing classics given a modern remake treatment.\

    Last I heard, there’s a remake of John Waters’ “Hairspray” in the works with John Revolta in drag in Divine’s role. Smells like blasphemy to me.

    That trash guy. Hey! I reckon that’s a definite shot of the mystery pisser. Keep it as evidence man!

    How are the barbeque addicts downstairs, or have you put them off meat?

    Amazing article about the water costs of various foods in The Age (Melbourne) a few days ago.

    ” For instance, it takes an estimated 8000 litres of water to produce a single pair of leather shoes.

    Eat a kilogram of steak and you are responsible for using up to 16,000 litres of water. A bag of potato chips: 185 litres. An apple: about 70 litres.”
