” behold mortal, now wrath approaches…!”

imagine this then this 2012

back in my mansuit playing eclectic base catarrh

a roc n role band

we part of some big big tour

i imagine

some severe…dislocation…has taken place

oh yeah i’m the singer too

the singer gazelle

the singer sowing machine

i planted some things which came to uh fruition

my mind is so fast my fingers too slow

who am i today mad or imperfectly sane

i am calling clouds to this blew blue sky

i call them and they start to swirl now above the azure pool

round n round about my head

a crown of cirrus stratus title nimbus

my clouds my clouds i bring you music to feast upon

you must be made kilbey thinks the clouds to me

you must be made mad or else you are onto something

strange sketchy clouds like horse skellingtons

like crazy ghoul stallions all sky and bone drifting above but

i bet only i notices

the palms for i am in a resort

no other accom my crickets

all booked up my loci

i read a book by pete who about his life as a genius

always wond’rin if hes bi or something

that was a long way down my own list of priorities, my dreaming ones

just above parachutes and just below bunjy jumping

except for five minutes in 1972 when i noticed they invented diggy starwinkle

and the aphids from satin

poor pete who but fuck i love his music

the other guys in the group didnt always understand him

he went up n down all over the place

knocking out stuff on his home studio smokin’ too much weed

now with bad hearing too

ya wouldnt read about it my inklings now would you?


i am in this resort in the middle of a lovely edenic nowhere

think palm springs on the sea

think some holiday spot in israel or maybe no cal but hot

think portugal where every drug is leegle

and usage has shrunken….duh!

anyway i call the storm to me

i am on at about 6 this arvo

i want the negative ions to feed my music

i must be mad

yes say the clouds

you must!

    There is no great genius without a mixture of madness. ~Aristotle

    Theia mania: The Delphic priestess: Neither her face nor hue went untransformed; her breast heaved; her wild heart grew large with passion. Taller to their eyes. Sounding no longer mortal, she prophesied what was inspired from the God breathing near, uttering words not to be ignored.

    ~Virgil. The Aeneid.

        It’s a quotation, not a quote. A quote is the price a plumber suggests when he tells you how much it’ll cost to fix yer shitter! Tell me I’m right, Kohl Ette !

    Was in an actual church today and went not out of mechanical habit (dah) but out of love for someone who was having a special (good and bad) day. Another story… a reading struck me and had forgotten about it for so long. The one about the seeds falling on hard ground and amongst thorns, lessons in strength and endurance and then seeds falling on good soil. Interesting because I had the half thunk thought which you brought through quite prominently the other night about the fruit of the vine etc and well things are driftly in and out of consciousness in quite a delightful way in this moody summer. When it all starts to gel under certain conditions, that is really ameliorating.

    I thought Pete had come out. Rough Boys? Maybe he went back in. Guess I should read his book. Doesn’t really matter, though. It’s a kaleidoscope of love. Funny how fashion and trends apply to sexuality as well. In the future, everyone will be bi for 15 minutes.

    Couple of clips from Art Rock n roll gig on 29 Nov available on YouTube. Search ‘the church corner 29/11/12’ and you will have a choice between ‘Constant in Opal’ or ‘When you were mine’. NB: Marty’s discovered the cost of razor blades again!

    Caught the Church at the Perth edition of the Day on the Green last night. Having seen the Church on a number occasions, I generally go into to these oldie festival shows with fairly low expectations. The lads will put on a good show with all the hits etc but not a great show which transcends and blows the mind. Well last night, the Church delivered in spades and I think achieved a very difficult balance, dishing out some hits to the uninitiated masses while appeasing the hardcore fans (like me) who had really only shelled out the 100 buck ticket to see the 50 or so minute set from the Church.

    The boys opened with Metropolis and Almost With You, delivering auto pilot versions that were still pretty good but you got the feeling that Killa and Co would rather have been playing something else. Next was Sealine. Awesome song choice from my favourite Church album (well at the moment anyway). Then they played Angel Street, not one of my favourites, but one had to have a laugh. Definitely not the Unguarded Moment most of the crowd were waiting for or expecting. Great renditions of Reptile and UTMW followed but it was the last 2 tracks of the set that dare I say transcended the tuned in listener.

    Block was just magic. One of the best Church songs, made even more amazing being played in a stunning botanical garden setting. What more could one ask for? Well um how about a long rendition of You Took to finish off. From the opening harmonics, you couldn’t wipe the grin off my face. Good on you Church for sticking a 12 minute jam right in the face and ears of everyone in attendance.
    Great gig, great set list.

    Ps for the tech heads, MWP has a new Shergold 12!

    Sealine would’ve mad a fantastic opener. But Metropolis?! I know Pete likes it but…er… Block, however, is fucking Godhead, dude!

    I don’t like to address directly, it fills me with mortifying self consciousness but in the interest of congenital congeniality, I think you may be being a slightly saucy pedantic wretch, said with great affectation… I mean really, what does it have to do with the price of christmas crappers, I mean crackers?
