the next day the killer awoke
its a rainy foggy day
hes in a beautiful hotel room
oh if only miss natalie was here…
the room is full of wood n soft sumptuous carpet
the killers mind is full of last nites gig
the music rings on in my mind n my ears
how could the same man have been ignored in one place
dismissed with nary a clap
and the same bloke
same songs
same mature (d)rugged handsome looks
same grey beard
gets 3 (count em!) encores somewhere else?
there you go
its all relative
wello was a shambles
cc was a fiasco
but orc-land was the decider
and the killer came home
the lovely audience provided a safety net of goodwill
i fell but i bounced back up
i remembered the words
i remember the chords
the protective invisible suit surrounded me
and my true self shone forth
nothing mattered anymore
they made me feel at home
and i did feel welcome there
one of the best solo gigs i ever done..
must thank kurt s
who promoted this tour
who put his money where his mouth was
and unfortunately
lost a few fucking thousand bucks
but thru everything
remained cheerful n optimistic
and was concerned for me and my upsndowns
kurt…bring me back again please
just me…not the band….
let orcland be my own little haven
where i know i can come n get a little adoration
i wanna thank paul footlights
who jumped in n made my gig a lot easier
gave of ‘imself regardless
and got my guitar intune at last
although hed bought a 40 buck ticket himself
he spent most of gig
backstage getting guitars ready
pauly …not a god…but damn close
and 12 strings are a bother yes
but when in tune are so sweet like a mini orc-estra
thanks to matty d for all his help n hope the film is good
thanks to the legendary shayne carter who came backstage
hope to see more of ya in syddley in nov
thanks to jo jo the phillipino who gushed n gushed
n had to be carted off still gushing
and strangely strangely
the other gentlemen calling himself matt d
i met him in the carpark
a big dark (welsh?) brute
looking for a fight was he…?
the killer gave him one in guts
one in the head
and then a high karate kick
which put his great vicious rugby lights out
hey apparently he was in town stalking the other matt d
you aint heard the last from that bastard…
hey davyddson…im gonna have ya
if ya ever step one inch below the equator again!!!
i left him moaning in the gutter
mopping up his blood with a copy of fruit machine…
ha! the bloody cheek…
anyway
today i fly out
the extended fam is having christmas in july
all 5 daughters
juicy wallop
all 2 brothers
all 1 niece
all 2 nephews
amy s
zoe m
karin n gorm
more swedes
uncle kenny n cousin sammy
and of course
lil nk
lies waiting patiently for me
homeward bound fiendss
back across the ditch
bye bye killer
come back soon

    Ahh Steve, that other matty d was seen running and screamin’ …into the girls toilets πŸ™‚ But seriously, you are a fighter underneath, in a good way. Just heard a bit of ‘Almost With You’ playing on tv’s Sunrise show while I was about to type this. Well, we were ALWAYS with you, all the way. The people in auckland who saw you, helped you out (paul, matt etc) and Kurt, you rock bigtime, BIG time! Sorry to hear about the $$ but I hope you do go back again steve, an annual event? Tell Kurt we’ll support him. Safe travels,a happy family reunion to look fw to!

    Glad to hear it ended well for you.
    Solo acoustic aint my cup of tea but it’s good to hear you found your audience (or perhaps mojo).
    Hope i haven’t come across as too critical. It’s just that I thought you might like to hear the critique of one of thoses people who quietly leaves before the end. Hope it was constructive.
    Hey at least I don’t hang around talking or heckling.
    I much prefer your band, but keep Marty of them drums. That was the point I left last time.

    as you finish up your acoutic solo gigs…got me thinking about an incredibly talented and underground artist from Canada..Danny Michel. I had the pleasure to introduce him to the audience when he opened for a big celtic rock band named Great Big Sea(at least big in Canada..pun intended)..anyway..the man and his guitar..his voice..his song writing…amazing and he has a couple of things in common with you …a love affair with creative freedom after 10 years he just went back to DIY and i mean EVERYTHING he does himself that and David Bowie…in fact he released an entire album of bowie covers, but his real talent lies in his storytelling…
    hear for yourself…he’s on itunes…he has just released an acoustic retrospective of his first 10 years …a good place to start..Danny Michel..check him out…i’m sure he hates me because i became very nervous infront of a large audience and didn’t pronounce his name exactly as it should when intro’ing for the show a couple of years ago…listening to the bowie covers at the moment..what a voice…check out danny michel…no im not getting commision…just thought it might be an artist you could appreciate….

    Ahhhh…the sweet fragrance of euphoria…

    And I’ll be damned ! – I can hardly believe it, but I actually found myself agreeing with Brien C’s comment in yesterday’s post ! (??) …yes, Brien, you are right – “Sometime Anywhere” is undoubtedly the Church’s most overlooked and underrated album…and yes, it is pure psychedelic genius up there with anything from the late 60’s. When it came out in Australia it was actually groundbreaking…I loved it from the get-go but most music critics didn’t quite know what to make of it and ran with the “Church break-up story” instead.
    For me, that album is a classic – I also struggled to understand how two people created it (though of course – big credit must go to “Dare” Mason for his production). If Steve was in the grip of smack at that time, it is even more amazing that he ploughed right through it all and still came out with that gem.

    Matt D (Director) – what are your plan’s for this film ? Will you be shopping it in Cannes ?

    Enjoy Christmas, SK – you can be Claus with your twinkling beard.

    Anonymous | 29 July 2007 at 5:10 am #

    Let me clarify…I’m glad you said the correct title Steve. The name of the album I mentioned is Sometime Anywhere and it’s companion Somewhere Else.

    I just listened to them back to back…Still love the lyrics to Love Blind (twisty), the non-lyrics and style of Eastern. The Time Being is on Disc 2 πŸ™‚ This note and more was actually sent when the music was first released Steve, but it was ‘returned to sender’. So forwarding to you via your blog.

    I’m very much in awe of your solo work though…I listened to ‘Freaky Conclusions’ to and fro the Anoushka Shankar concert-

    Abby: “who is this, it’s quite good.”
    Muse: “That’s SK, can you believe it’s xxxx old?” wink

    Malcolm,
    Yeah, that was agreeable of Brien C., a good review indeed, more accurate IMO. Hi Brien.

    Well that is good news because you deserve more than some little country where sheep out number people 3 to 1 making you feel that your are not the musical genius that we all know and love !

    Auckland is more of a cosmoplitan place from wot i hear so they were able to appreciate you for what and who your are …our musical messiah.

    good on ya SK for takin care of the imposter matttyd. i heard all about it.

    the time being emerging from the backstage doors, exhausted from giving it his all but cool and collected. the approach of the imposter, and the beings long slow clint eastwood stare. “What are you gonna do, bleed on me?” And a flurry to the solar plexus, leaving him unable to whine or beg for clemency. the being undefeatable like Arjuna, simply acting out the will of the cosmos.

    enjoy the xmas in july, killa! glad to hear the show went so well. any chance of bootlegs for the fiendss?

    Sometime Anywhere is def-finite-lee an underrated one that has grown on me over the years. My Little Problem is the stand out for me (seems the Kilbster wasn’t quite in denial about what was going on with him) although Loveblind is a great little story but my fave is the Maven. Muscular hard rocker jams. Hard to believe it was just the two of ’em with Timmy on drums for the first time of course. Merry merry Killa.

    Hey mebbe the Killa can tell the story behind Sometime Anywhere sometime… Ya right, not friggin’ likely after the question period debacle last year. Oh well, just have to use our imagination. Koppes alluded to some Opium use around the time of Priest=Aura in an article in the Big Takeover a few years back but that’s the most I’ve ever read about the making of a Church album. Probably best to leave it to imagination anyhoo.

    Brien Comerford | 29 July 2007 at 6:49 pm #

    Simultaneously I feel elete and guilty for being a Church and Steve Kilbey fanatic. The elitism is rooted in the FACT that I have discovered the greatest band in the world since the Beatles. The guilt is rooted in the reality that I don’t have the power or the money to expose the Church’s music to the entire world as a means for it to resonate with the unenlightened masses.

    Clapton’s guitar festival was superlative. Chicago was blessed to get it. Best performances were Jeff Beck’s spellbinding electric guitar solo of the Beatles “A Day In The Life”. Beck literally made his guitar sound like an orchestra.

    Clapton was great via playing “Why Does Love Have To Be So Sad” and via teaming-up with Steve Winwood to play classics from Blind Faith’s one and only CD. BB King and Buudy Guy were also great.

    daniel12 | 29 July 2007 at 6:55 pm #

    Yeah I have with these punters saying Sometime Anywhere is a lost gem. In fact it’s the only Church album I own. Sure PK’s not there but it’s the first one with TP on it. I must admit I havent listened to it for years though. To me it’s dark music from a dark time,It’s rather druggy and bleak but then it has these sachrine sweet moments too. Like a temporarily euphoric high in the midst of a ghastly addiction. Stand out tracks for me were ‘Day of the Dead’ ,’Lost my touch’and ‘Loveblind’ The lyrics for Loveblind are great. Kind of like an Angel Heart (old Micky Rouke film) tale with Nevets as Johnny Favorite. I know it might not have been the best time for you Nevets but Sometime Anywhere turned me on to what a great lyricist you are. It would be commercial suicide for an unknown artist to release something like Sometime Anywhere but im sure glad some people are in a position to do it.
    Imagine Radiohead intoducing themselves to the world with Kid A. We would of never heard of them.

    It may have been a shambles but it was an artistic shambles.
    Wello shouldn’t forget artists like you.
    Forget the South Island.
    Don’t forget “Louisiana” & “Grind”.
    Don’t forget the Dminor at the end of the verse in “Caroline Says”.
    Forget the Fmajor at the end of the verse of “Caroline Says”.
    Don’t forget to give the Guild a good thrashing before setting out again.
    Don’t forget an anecdote about Waddy Wachtel.
    Lastly don’t “Forget Yourself”.
    Tomorrow is Ah “Monday Morning”.

    That’s great news…The Church will work on a new album soon- I’ll stop turning blue now. merci!

    Brien C.

    Agreed, The Church is better than the Beatles, and that’s a FACT. I always thought so…I was such a Bowie fiend until ‘Let’s Dance’. Then I found ‘Heyday’- and never looked back.

    Jeff Beck. I don’t have to say how great ‘Wired’ is. I’m glad you had the pleasure of seeing him in the spirit of The Beatles- good for you, it must have been cool.

    So you think ‘FY’ is the very best of The Church? I don’t know that I could chose just one, but ‘B-side Yourself’ is more my vibe. I think ‘Cantilever’ and ‘Serpent Easy’ are masterpieces.

    Thank you Steve for a magnificent Auckland concert β€” I was the guy who was dragged up on stage by some lovely lady from the next table after my wife insisted I knew all the words to Glow-Worm, a song we played at our wedding eight years ago!
    As everyone saw, stage fright quickly took hold, and I floundered my way around a few lines that haphazardly came to mind while I was up there with you.
    Aplogies for butchering your beautiful song, thanks to that friendly, appreciative audience for putting up with me (and for making the night so memorable for you too, we all would love to have you back, of course) and thanks to you, such a warm, articulate and intelligent human being.

    I wish you and all your family good health, and wonderful times ahead.

    Just some more random thoughts on the Auckland gig . . .

    Talk about an opportunity lost . . . so many things I have played over and over in my mind that I knew I should have said while on stage with the revered Mr Kilbey on Saturday night, or when backstage even . . .

    Such as, what is it that makes his and The Church’s music and lyrics resonate and strike a chord with me β€” ever since seeing The Unguarded Moment on telly in 1981 β€” like no other musician or lyricist has ever done.

    And the way the band has matured and just got better and better β€” Uninvited Like the Clouds, Beside Yourself and Back With Two Beasts are superb albums.

    Anyway, if you’re reading this, thanks for 28 years of outstanding quality music and words β€” it will be a very sad day when or if you decide not to record any more. And come back soon to Auckland where you know you will be welcomed again.

    Yes I was there too !

    SK 10 feet in front of me out of the haze of double sidelights, ablaze on the 12 string – delivering Hotel Womb with such wallop & passion. what a brilliant night, will stay with me forever.

    Get yourself a copy of Persia, to me this is The Church’s most overlooked work. Shadow Cabinet is one of their alltime songs.

    Kia Kaha Steve – how about an intimate Church gig at the Kings Arms ??

    Dear Anon 10.42am and Brian C.
    I would agree the Church are a good guitar band but to say there as good or better than the Beatles is absurd. The Beatles released Rubber Soul,Revolver and Sgt Pepper over a period of 18 months. Get of the grass guys.
    Perhaps your aim is to flatter but when flattery turns to dementia it’s no longer flattering.

    Daniel12,

    I like, not love the Beatles…no insult intended to Beatles fans.
    It’s my strong opinion that The Church has far better music.
    It’s not absurd to say that, and I’m surely not demented.

    Yeah well I won’t be back, I mean look at me!!! The Killer beat the shit out of me in a cold, dark wet Orcland car park – straight after the 2nd encore – and then left me bleeding as he went and did a third encore.

    I’m in agony, I regret my stalking, and from now on, I’ll stick with Cliff Richard’s blog, it’s a bit safer.

    Nos da all

    Hi.
    I love The Beatles but listen to ’em perhaps once a month.
    I listen to The Church every day. No comparison for me either – it’s The church every time. It ain’t about flattery…it’s about personal opinion. Be an effing boring world if we all agreed which band was the best.
