only kinda egg i like

the church sounded quite good the other night at our corporate gig

not bad considering its almost a year since we played

starting our run of gigs real soon

including side shows in sydney and melbourne

still working on my solo record

but its gonna take some more work and re-thinking

have about 13 new things ready but i need more variety or something

feeling a bit flat today about everything actually

as you do as you go up n down with life….

we are having a bit of a christmas sale

we are having it now to enable stuff you may order now to get there in time

so if youre thinking gifts this year

give the extravagant gift of a cd or t shirt ….go on be a devil !

some exciting plans for next year too

will tell you more as everything firms up

its pks birthday today too!

looks pretty young for his age…..

    Peter’s a scorpio? I wonder if he has a sting in his tail? No I don’t. I never think such things. However, a cd or t shirt, I’d like to point out is extravagant when you need to send things to either the other side of the country or world. Sorry to my family if you read this. I’m sure they’d be rather puzzled about comments other than this anyway. Sorry, happy birthday, affectionate commiserations, would like to say looking forward to my last church concert but etc

    Happy birthday PK. SK you look good for your age too, you could shave off (literally) about 10 more by shaving the beard (though it does look good on you). Have a nice day.

    Both u and PK were reading the contract ,inthe mid-late 80’s and , and after u
    both snickered about the ‘eternal youth’ clause…Marty snatched it out of ur hands
    and said …”let’s sign this bloody contract, in blood, and be on with it…I wanna ROCK…
    forever Baby !!!…”….

    Unbeknownst to MWP…he forget to initial the ‘eternal youth’ clause and well…well…hav
    u seen him ??? LOL…. and before u got to reread the important ‘financials’ clause(s) ….
    that ole contract was signed , sealed, and …the rest is Church history….

    The dark figure with the contracts simply vanished….

    ( this most important part was left out of NCA , but will be SK ‘s new Auto-Bio – let’s hope !!!

    If ya celebrate it…HAPPY THANKSGIVING !!! be safe-healthy- and loved !!!

    If u don’t…let’s hope for a peace accord , ASAP, in the Middle East….I hav close friends
    still teaching there…got an email this morning, its really really bad !!!

    Logic? Pick a note. Any note. Choose a setting. Any setting. Think of a bridge. A bridge to where? For why? To get somewhere else, to re-inflate a sense of possibility? Slam up the GoldVerb, saturate the image. Synesthesia.

    Just a thought

    glad the church sounded quite good the other night. remember: easter eggs made of sugar with violets and tiny rose buds painted on with pastel icing and fairytale scenes inside.

    I’m feeling kinda flat today too, but Chronic Fatigue does that! Had it since ’96 and it’s a real bummer. Right now I’m trying to psyche myself up and draw on my limited energy reserves – a major assignment for my MSc Astronomy unit looms. 10-12 pages on “Optical Interferometry”. The deadline approaches and I’ve done stuff-all! Not panicking yet – been there before & seem to find the energy to finish….and pass with flying colours! Must pass this Unit, and one final Unit next year, as a Sydney Uni wants me for a PhD (in Aboriginal Astronomy)…..anyway, rambling here!

    Happy Birthday PK, and, like Andreas, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the future. Studies (and finances) will sadly keep me away from seeing the ‘fab 4’ this time, so hoping there is ‘another time’!

    Please don’t throw egg on my face. I put it on my wall but I wrote this originally for you, unbeknowns to my friends, well perhaps some guessed. A kind lady, Ms Dickson, said I should put it in a lit mag. A couple of others liked it too. So, I thought I may as well give it to the intended audience which unfortunately will be public. As I think you yourself once said, our audience is really very small isn’t it? Anyway…trade offs as they say:

    DEAR ‘BROTHER’:

    Oh My God!
    My brother-not-brother I miss you so much!
    Forget me knot!
    When can we be friends again?
    But it was her doing, I’m sure, not yours.
    You were in my dream.
    You were here then left behind.
    (Why have you abandoned me?)
    but you caught up, in fact you got before.
    It was difficult.
    Lots to cut through, obscurity
    but at one stage
    we were near again
    (oh me of little faith).
    You put your arm round my waist, reassuring.
    Our foreheads nearly touched.
    Your hair across my cheek brushed.
    You fought passively against in lores, reassuring.
    It was her doing, I’m sure, not yours.
    It’s all before.
    Thank you brother-not-brother
    for healing my sore.

    (May you feel less flat; or perhaps it has nothing to do with me, just life…but that was a real dream).

    I like your lovehearts on the frontal image of your ‘only kinda egg i like’ pic. reminds me of something else that has been popping up lately.
    Dreams Dreams where do they go, the good ones never last long enough, the bad ones can leave you speechless and mute for hours.

    Glad it was ok but I for one hope you don’t have 2nd thoughts now – forget church & move on. Andy don’t think you’re the church, but I do – and I saw t’church in 1982! Remember when you said (in relation to Ploog) that once they’ve gone, they’ve gone & it’s like they’re dead to you? Best way, I reckon.

    If SK puts The Church to sleep, so to speak, he’s not half the man that I thought he was. I love SK’s solo releases and the side projects, but nobody, and I mean NOBODY, should end The Church before their time. The GREATEST band ever!

    Hey Steve! Just wondering whether I could put in a request for next weeks show in Perth. I would love love love to hear Fly. Understand if not possible. Also, do you reckon you guys will stick around after the show to meet/sign things etc?
    Looking forward to the show 😀
    Cheers, Georgie

    what has happened to minus 23 Steve?…
    just watched a bit of the Enmore concert and interview
    the Albert Hall, Canberra has no ‘royal’ bit and I know that as I spent my fair share as a kid on stage
    my one and only concert at the Albert Hall was Cheech and Chong…but really should not trust the memory
    also have the Hawkwind album etc…….copied, carved and painted the cover onto a leather bag…have you read Wilhelm Reich A man who dreamed of tomorrow?…persecuted to the end
    follow your dreams…why not??
    as always, best wishes one and all
