    Just off to work, but noticed a new clip to watch, so SK comes first! However, I did think I might still be asleep and dreaming, cos Roddy looks so much like Peter Sellers years ago, especially when Peter Sellers played the character Dr Fassbender in the 1965 film What's New Pussy Cat! Well, I've realised I'm not still in the land of nod (more's the pity), so I'd better get going or I'll be late! Oh, almost forgot to say, really unusual interview technique Mr K. Haha!

    I think its the glasses that make RR look different. Or perhaps its the camera. ( ? ) I saw him about 5 years ago in Pitt St. after about a 15 year gap and he looked the same as he did in the mid 1980's .
    That is to say, Elvis -level handsome.

    Maybe you need to think about a movie.
    You have a gift for the surreal.

    I remember seeing the Hoodoo's around '87 in San Diego, I think. Good tunes but what I remember the most was having pity for the snare drum. They had this huge guy on drums that beat the shit out of that snare.

    I saw the Hoodoo's back Midnight Oil at a tremedous concert event in a Chicago Northwest Suburban concert venue almost two decades ago. Both bands were riveting and captivating.

    time enough
    time flies by
    stands still

    moving past
    you remember
    here and now
    now and then

    escape from hell
    hell i'm no rimbaud
    love is strong
    for a song

    our brothers weep
    hellbound keeps
    all our hearts
    in line my rhyme

    cheap enough to buy
    read my cards
    fly into the sun
    poems of sliver unorthodox ones

    in time we meet again
    sinking sand
    who ever i am
    pretend a pretender

    enough said i
    am dead and will
    be a star in the back
    seat your

    every man
    every woman
    every now
    and again

    a propo RR's hair – the last time I saw Roddy Radar was at a party above a shop in Oxford Street on a warm Sydney night, the Elvis-blue dye from his gleaming hair running down the sides of his face and onto his shiny blue wide-lapelled suit; and he may even have been wearing white shoes.
    Smiling pleasantly all the while.

    Yeah, you are a fine film maker as well as poet and musician….a la Cocteau perhaps?

    I saw these images on an ABC show last night

    it's hard to know what to say

    …other than that it's hard to overlook that old superstition about it being very bad luck to kill albatrosses


    Mr K, do you think you might have a song in you about this?

    Hey you guys look like you are having fun! Steve did you get some botox over there! aww sorry must be all the good diet and lifestyle, you are primo for a 55 year old male. I went to the beach today and oh my lord, the world is in an obesity epidemic.
    Brian, that would have been amazing to see, the Hoodoo Gurus are so good live, so much fun.
    As for new music, I just thought yesterday, that the music I love now, could easily be sung by Steve Kilbey, with the same passion and beauty. My boys send me stuff, the latest, though a couple of years old, i am getting right into, is The Shins 'Wincing the night away' so pretty, a bit folky, American. They also into Grizzly Bear and Bon Ivor, beautiful pretty music with amazing vocals.
    Happy homecoming Steve. Linda xxx

    I remember this guy now, thanks to Robert's comment of seeing the Hoodoos in SD in '87. I saw them over the border in Tijuana July of that year…and yeah, he's a memorable drummer. Thanks for memories.

    im just a bit overwhelmed and starstruck (its taken me a while to be able to view this). In the 80's Leilani was my nickname at work, i loved Stoneage Romeo's so much (when it wasn't "churchling"). This new land has produced so much wild talent with you guys

    love S xox
