kilbey this
kilbey that
get me another kilbey……
my kilbeys been tampered with…
kilbey said what?
boom boom boom
the boom has burst
live long the new boom
let it bloom again
let the flowers be strewn
dionysus rides in
on a milk white ass
ectstatic rites
the revellers come
the mysteries
as night falls down on us
hot and surrounding
i surrender to drink
yes i lose my head
yes i cant believe the things that we do
the moon so soon
grecian night full of gods
bass guitar pounds in my nerves
i separate and cool off
i evaporate from skin
in the black and harshness
weaving and dealing
giddy lidded middle man
lurching from one thing to the next
hammer on hammer off
a lyre is blearily plucked
someone laughs nearby
in the distance there is a scream
in the sacred groves
the slave girl from thrace….
is she too an initiate?
lover and handmaiden
to the handsome god of wine
under a spell of love
under a sky of stars
i no longer kilbey
voices whisper in the night
i sit stroking a lion
i eat a peach
i under the trees
i mingle freely with unhumans
i move like an arrow in a glade
i disappear into your flesh with a grunt
i follow the white light out of my skull
i die
i remain
i die
i remain
i strip down to my mansuit
i entertain momentous thought
i collect myself again
i appear before you at your prayers
supplicating before krishna
petitioning lady maria venus
i wake up in some future morning bewildered
look in the mirror
some new stranger
his eyes black n huge
his look wild n dissolute

    iv’e just finished the final mastering on the gilliam section’s debut album ‘solus’,
    i even managed to play a little bit of synth on it too.
    i think you and a fair few TTBer’s
    will rather like it.
    ambient, mainly instrumental and highly experimental…..

    six tracks from it are online now at:
    the guys hail from the san antonio area of texas and are superb…..pioneering, envelope-pushing musicanship throughout!
    some beautiful sounds indeed…..give ’em a try?
    in fact….sould go down well with dave’s hot toddy!
    hope your’e all having a groovy weekend,
    andy L.

    steve (and fellow fiendss), did you see the story about the lobster that was released? good on the restaurant!!

    NEW YORK – A 140-year-old lobster once destined for a dinner plate received the gift of life Friday from a Park Avenue seafood restaurant.

    George, the 20-pound supercentenarian crustacean, was freed by City Crab and Seafood in New York City.

    “We applaud the folks at City Crab and Seafood for their compassionate decision to allow this noble old-timer to live out his days in freedom and peace,” said Ingrid E. Newkirk, president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

    PETA spokesman Michael McGraw said the group asked City Crab to return George to the Atlantic Ocean after a diner saw him at the restaurant, where steamed Maine lobster sells for $27 per pound. George had been caught off Newfoundland, Canada and lived in the tank for about 10 days before his release.

    Some scientists estimate lobsters can live to be more than 100 years old. PETA and the restaurant guessed George’s age at about 140, using a rule of thumb based on the creature’s weight.

    He was to be released Saturday near Kennebunkport, Maine, in an area where lobster trapping is forbidden.

    My favorite blog in weeks. My limited cerebral acuity could gauge all of this one. SK is an esoteric dude.

    Veleska: Good lobster story. But for one liberated lobster there are thousands of others being traumatized and killed in their native habitats by invasive human sharks.

    PETA rules ! I LOVE THEM
