    You guys rocked like nobody’s business in Dallas Friday. You never disappoint. 😀

    My daughter liked meeting you. She said you were “very good looking and has the coolest accent” (she’s 16). She was too shy to ask for a photo, though. :/

    Safe travels my friend.

    My 23 year old daughter lives in DFW and she heard before I had that The Church was playing in Dallas on 4-8 so she bought tickets as a birthday gift to me (48 tomorrow).

    It was indeed a great show. The Church have been a favorite band of mine since first coming across them at Ray’s Records and Tapes as a freshman dumbass at Texas Tech, circa ’86. Had never heard of the band but the name and the front cover pic with the band all sporting the same paisley gear that I was routinely sporting was enough to get me to bite. They’ve been a part of my life ever since so I appreciate any opportunity to see the band.

    Thanks Steve (Peter, Tim, Ian, Marty, Richard and the guy playing keys-guitar at the gig, couldn’t make out his name) for doing what you do and being who you are. You guys are my Beatles, Stones, Bowie, etc (and you’ve remained vibrant, progressive, relevant). Like thousands of others, it’s not possible to thank you in person so we do it by buying everything you release , making occasional donations and posting comments. I imagine that it might be a bit of a beating hearing and reading this type of stuff (or isn’t it) but it’s meant with sincerity and much respect.

    nineteen ninety one
    Roman as I looked in the rear view mirror
    never going back again
    thinking that leaving was liberating
    not damaging at all
    oblivious to the scar tissue accumulating

    twenty five years later
    following Jesus
    killing my enemies
    by loving them to death

    if you’re going to have an initiation
    Hermann’s hall is a good place to do it
    down in the dungeon

    yeah baby when I think of those nights in Dallas
    like in that hotel with the swimming pool on the roof
    we were drinking gin and vermouth

    what would you do if you were me?
    this is all just a ploy
    when they return you will be filled
    with triumphant ecstasy

    it only works once

    where was the Fender VI?
    it wasn’t missed
    so maybe I’ll sell mine
    I now have to admit
    my banging on it
    was just emulating
    my rock star

    at the end we agreed
    that we made friends
    we all agreed that
    whatever we came for
    we had forgotten
    in the wake of what had happened

    Sorry I will still be in Florida through your tour. Break a leg and all that…Sure you will kill. Do be safe and may your flight back be more enjoyable.

    Dear Clyde. I wanted to see the Church play but they’re on the other side of the state and i have to work. But anyway I love that slow jangle like field of Mars or is this where you live where it feels like time is just a slow motion rocket ship then all of a sudden they break into this pumping rock music and Kilbey comes up to the mic like a moving chess piece and belts off these beautiful surreal lines. Queen moves here then Kilbey comes up to the mic. Great stuff Clyde. Sincerely Kevyn

    Oh yeah, can’t wait for Sunday in Swillmington (Hella where? – you gotta history in the state too, huh) at the Queen. After a week of shows in a row this one will merit a day off afterwards, especially heading up to Happy Valley Northampton Mass! Lucky bastard you, ROCK ON!!!

    Sweat ya later mate, peace!

    AURA OF PINK SHONE OF GOD
    Feed my soul food
    Souls in need
    I approach you humbly
    I do not scream like
    Child with tightening
    Inner ear valves at high altitude
    Tho i do empathise with Dorothea
    Something about scurrying creatures in grass and praise we are not too
    Sensitive yet for to quote
    The muffled cries on the other side of silence.
    Sometimes trials feel too strenuous
    To bear
    Just before becoming almost overwhelmed with care
    I remember soul mate
    And request for prayer.
    So,
    there we go.
