beautiful fiends
its friday
the end of the week
im reading a book called giants of the frost
by an australian author(ess) kim wilkins
theres a picture of her inside and shes very pretty
im not exactly wolfing the book down
as i did that tolkien book
its got the norse gods in it which is a plus
but its all hinged on a bit of a drippy (so far) love story
by the whey
i did get to see all of the illusionist
and i thought it was better than the prestige
(by a mile)
but still i ached for the lost opportunities
to go all the way
forget the dopey bint who played the heroine
keep the love interest carryon a minor thing
we want magic
we want darkness
we want inexplicable unexplainable mystery
we wanna be carried away
we want from our fiction n film
what we cannot have from real life
thats my job, too
i write songs that come from somewhere else
somewhere over the rainbow
somewhere where things blur and the mundane is cancelled out
i am working on combinations of words and melodies
i am working on clusters of notes arranged pointilistically
like blips on a graph measuring your deep heart
i am working on memories we never had
dreams we should have, but never did dream
my voice continues to mellow and improve
my fingers find their way unaided
they glide over pianos n tambourines
the guitar gives up new things to me
everything falls in its place
like tiger woods sinking a putt
polinski is even as we speak preparing to mix painkiller
its a sprawling esoteric masterpiece
its got concise lil rock songs
its got long meandering things
its got radiotronics and feedback
crashing walloping exciting drumming
its my usual narcissistic genius/idiot lyrics
oh god people
how the words keep flying into my head
rhymes n phrase n allusions and metres
you understand when you hear it
how easy it was to make
and all the love
my love
tims love
william master of spaces love
polinski the iconoclast will express his love
in reverbs and rich valves and bringing out the grain
the record is the solo record i had to make
remindlessness is also a sprawling work of love n music
but limited by its recording in my spare bedroom
the mechanical-ness of a lot of it
i didnt want that….its just what happened
narcosis plus more is another lovely record too
dark brooding sad electronic whirlpool
those are my 2 best so far
but this new one is a real “proper” record
coming along at a parallel rate is the k/k record
a nother cup of fish all together now
simple songs
poignant music
just so right…..
just so set up to be sung over
jlk gives me a song we worked on a cuppla weeks back
lovely work to all concerned
the 2 records will polarise you
one wild ride in n out of the chakras
one lovely garden of verse
you gonna love em both
you gonna need em both
like you need both eve and aurora
like you need day n night
like you need sex n sleep
like you need up n down

went round n visited my oirish friends j n m
who are renting a lovely little villa in coogee
a few beaches down from bondi
while e and a and m played
framed against the mauve sunset and the calm pacific ocean
we talked of mice n men
j snapped a pic of aurora
her father standing behind her
his hands on her shoulders
both of them against the warm australian black night
my hands symbolically protecting my beloved daughter
and my eyes narrowed in the way fathers eyes do narrow
grant comes on my pod (again!!!)
strangely enough immediately after shuffle played
“in this room”
which is one its never thrown up before
(the church: music your shuffle can throw up)
grant youre not telling me my numbers up are ya?
(the track was “the clock”)
anyway i just spoke to polinski
and he likes what hes heard so far
so thats a good sign
he really is one of the best
at getting what i want
and im sure he’ll come thru
years of live blasting music have rendered my ears useless
for mixing at any rate
and it never was my best kinda thing
leave it to the specialists i say
my speciality is creating this intrigue outta thin air
the world will of course largely ignore it
a few thousand will get it
maybe not even buy it
maybe just get it outta some friends senuti ipod
but itll be out there now forever
and itll go on turning em on as long as they wanna listen
it will mean something to you
to whoever wants to invest an hour
penetrating its mystery
have we got an hour for that these days?
youll squeeze it in somehow
its gonna go on giving to ya
my selfcentred macrocosmic narcissistic everyman schtick!
my cartoon epic new age old age fabulous mess
just like that!

    Verdelay, I’m still haunted by your “death chant” for Kilbey..

    You are right: we should have some coaching for death, just like prenatal classes for people giving birth.

    ..The Navahos had songs for the dying process, the Tibetans had their Book of the dead, what do we have ?

    Some have God, I don’t. What should I think on this approaching void ? I grab my guitar teddy bear, time passes.

    Hi, Steve, this devoted fan is definitely going to buy your new records. I got Mimesis just the other day – “exhilerating” is the word that comes to mind, when listening to it. I just wish you could reach a larger audience (because you deserve it), by appearing on Letterman, Leno or Conan O’Brien. You need a great manager, who’ll be ready to work his ass off for you.

    this was cute and it made for a giggle. but i’ve never thought of the church that way, just heavy metal or rap. (!)

    “the world will of course largely ignore it”
    now THAT is what makes me throw up. the ignorance of the masses is almost criminal. people just don’t know what they are missing.

    That description sounds wonderful (although I expect no less)! And of course I’m going to need and love them both. I always love getting a much anticipated new album and blocking out everything else and just losing myself in it, especially for those first couple of listens. Mimesis was one hell of a cool trip — that’s one I think I may always need to do the special “first listens” routine with. It’s just that intense.

    Your description of you and Aurora — that was just beautiful. I can so see the narrowed, protective “daddy” eyes and stance. I’m always delighted by your ability to create such evocative images. It’s an incredible talent. (yeah, that might be a bit gushy, but sometimes a particular bit is just amazing.)

    Sk’s voice does belie age as it improves. I posit that from 1980 through Heyday SK was a very good vocalist. Starfish verified that Sk was a great vocalist. Priest-Aura commenced his reign as arguably the greatest vocalist in rock. The Jack Frost, Isidore, Dabble, Acoustic and Intimate Cds were laden with wondrous vocals. Uninvited Like The Clouds is a peerless album replete with dynamic vocals, guitars, bass and percussion. I most never forget Sk’s and The Church’s adroit usage of atmospheric keyboards. This is only my opinion and I can’t make a pimple on David Fricke’s rump.

    I’m sure we’ll dig the new solo music. But Steve, please please please don’t let the mastering engineer destroy the music with overcompression like they did with Uninvited, Like The Clouds.

    If as you say, only a few thousand will buy it, then tell the mixers and masterers to make it sound GOOD for us.

    As much as I love the songs on ULTC, I have to keep turning it down because it’s so mushed and harshly squashed.

    Please, please please?

    Andy says, “only….i notice someone moaning about the sound on ULTC again…

    that IS the sound of the church.”

    I beg to differ with ya man. After taking ULTC CD out and putting in El Momento Descuidado, there was a distinct difference in the sound. El Momento is not harshly compressed.

    Painfully loud compressed sound is NOT the sound of The Church to me. That is the sound of a mastering engineer who has fallen for the bullshit concept that louder is better at all costs.

    my personal fave of your solo records, whether you like it or not SK, is Unearthed. Don’t know why, but those songs are just timeless or something. Not that I don’t like the other stuff, I just like the feel of those recordings (“to be listened to in the bedroom… and out of it” my run out groove says).

    Been listening to a fair bit of MWP’s solo stuff lately (got In Reflection on right now – Marty’s best too). Maybe I have a thing for debuts, or a thing for home recordings.

    Anyway, excited about the new material. I love the first Isidore album.

    No doubt that you are a vehicle for some of the greatest thoughts, messages and aural/spiritual enhancement, not to mention an ENORMOUS amount of inspiration…a true channeler.

    No matter what happens in our world, Steve, even after your physical body is long gone, there will always be your legacy of fine art; honest musings, natural paintings, and some superior recorded music. It all has longevity, and your audience will grow exponentially throughout time.

    I too am looking forward to hearing the next installment of your catalogue. Keep up the great work, old friend.

    ***”for about a week’s worth of recording, dabble ain’t bad”***

    Alrighty then! 😉 For what it’s worth, I happen to think that “Dabble” is a brilliant record. I don’t believe the amount of time recording anything is relevant. Sometimes the greatest recordings are those magical spontaneous moments that happen in a small fraction of time. “Happy accidents” as they say…emotive energy. I know first hand that you CAN actually over-do something, and the “magic” is gone…

Both sound cool, complimentary opposites. i love it all!

    BTW – very cool titles – you always come up with cool titles, i envy that

    ‘Painkiller’, the solo record you had to make, is the one I have yearned4 for years– an unbridled SK, a wildly aspiring & formidable creation, like Remindlessness (my #1 of all your superb solo releases) but, yes, free of its production limitations.
    – and with plenty of rich low-end (but not over-compressed, right, jab @ bzt ??)

    2 on the way–this is an auspicious moment in time for our little tribe of believers.(!)

    you’re really quite the culture corner with your music, the beach, books! you all are so right- our Steve here is such a TEASE! My ears ache when you present your music lists *exhale

    Remindlessness and Narcosis + ? Well, there goes that then. Dabble is my baby! I love the loungy-jazzy-vibe of it. Looks like I’ll play all three sometime this weekend just to make sure- I’m planning on painting.

    Hope you brought your camera with you to the beach. I’ve missed way too many photo ops this week: the mists of Mill Valley, The atmospheric perspective of Napa Valley, the architecture of Sacramento. CURSES! My new books for the week are Smoothies and Juices (ya brainwasher!) and yet another book about Klimt. oh, Genx! Sir Real is very fresh and alive here in the Marin Galleries- Geese floating through the room, fish flying, little clouds casting shadows over fruit bowls, birds on a rope, leaves blowing. Lots of contemporary venetian colors and very photoreal my dear!

    i’ve always loved remindlessness. so many great tracks on there. elephant god is one of my favourites. the lyrics are absolutely beautiful, they capture so well the sadness of time and space and our condition. and the music in those bits calls it all up so well.

    narcosis +, i’ve always loved that distorted guitar bit on midnite in america. i don’t know, it takes me to that same place.

    i’ve enjoyed all your solo work. so different from the church. so many different sounds, such a mixed bag of stuff (esp on remindlessness) – short songs, long songs, cool ones and deep ones. i guess the closest church album might be sometime, anywhere. an underrated gem. authority is one of my favourite church songs.

    i reckon that the church are one of the most criminally underrated bands in australia if not internationally…magazines such as rolling stone haven’t put out a whisper about any new releases by the church or steve in god knows how long and i think it fucking stinks (what member of rs staff did you piss off, steve)…mind you it sometimes feels nice to know of such a beautiful secret such as you guys and the music you put out…
