im sorry
i cant be with you everyday
my family are getting suspicious
i say im going out for half an hour
but im scoring blogg
staggering home overloaded
with all yalls lovely comments
drunk on my ego
and supercilious cleverness
im trying to be everything to everybody here
christ you know it aint easy
i wanna write the best blog
i wanna heal the lame
and bring back the dead
i wanna make all the idiots
disappear
i want fete de LA musique on everycorner
everyday
i want the mumsndadsnkids to understand
i want more shakespeare , less copsnrobbers
i want more jeff buckleys
lord, why did you take that lovely manne from us?
hopefully he’s singin’ out there somewhere
i want those leaf blowers to stop workin’
and people go back to rakes
(or leave the fuckin’ leaves where they are)
i want ultc to bee number 1
on every chart in every country
and i’ll give all the money
back to the poor
i wanna dismantle the weapons baby
war huh what is it good for?
i wanna spend the defence budget on
guitars
recreational drugs
gamblin’
buying postcards of krishna
getting my be bop deluxe collection complete
i wanna bathe my feet in the silver heat
i , personally, wanna sack the generals
the arms (and legs) dealers
the fuckin spies…
what good does all that malarkey do you and me?
get those fat pale useless olde politicians
and make em take surfing lessons
give em a mushroom and send em down the tube
every imbecile who wants to kill some one
on some gods behalf
will be made
to read sidhartha and listen to a donovan cd
until they understand
(somewhere in washington
a little rat who is
assembling a file on me
has just smiled triumphantly..
“now i got ya sk..
spending defence budget on drugs…!)
its an absurd world…
yes!
we should drop joints instead of bombs
we should plant ibogaine instead of mines
cmon get angry with me…
ya cant drop joints on people….its unamerican
it is indeed an absurd world
eves got curly hair
she wants straight
auroras got straight
she wants curly
people setting fire to people cos of a cartoon
cmon
did anyone responsible put one seconds thought into that..?
as david blowie says
we’re just older children…thats all
now i;ll probably have to cut
the thin white juke in on all my blog ad revenue
they offered me a million bux a week
to advertise some music bizz rubbish on my site
tycoons flyin’ down here trying to persuade me
takin me out on their yachts and flashing cash
i told em
my readers are a sophisticated bunch
they aint gonna stand for commoicials
they love me,
nay,
revere me
for my integrity
for my honest dealings
for my forthrightness
they know olde sk calls a spade flush a spade flush
they know
im riding shotgun on their shopping trolley
the bohemians friend
st steven, martyred for marijuana
what a shame mary jane had a pain at the party
so thats it
no ads on my blogge, baybee
no ads for james blunce new aftershave
no spruikin the veronicas autobiography
sorry that wont wash here mister
these readers want their sk fixx pure
so there you glow
im alive
im well
in fact im valve bouncing
ive shifted up a gear
im realizing more and more
all the time
im getting it together for ya all
ya probly gunna see mee reel soon
when ya least expect it
ripples of my influence
little moments ive engineered for ya
astral strings ive pulled on yer behalf
problems ive taken care of for ya pleasure
you know how it is
i cant tell you any more than that
theyre listening
nevermind
see ya later
all my best
sk

    I was watching the Superbowl up here and wanting the Seahawks to win, but the referees must have been paid off by Pittsburgh. Oh well, that’s how it happens, living life by the drop. I know now when we will meet again soon. Thanks to all involved on your end. And ofcourse to “our” angels that are watching over us. Our destiny awaits…

    I saw some bigotraphy last knight on the clown who killed John Lennon. Said he didn’t need a reason. Don’t need a reason, eh? Hmmm…. Couldn’t buy bullets in New York so he flew to Georgia. At least Lennon got a few more days of life out of THAT nice little law…

    it’s a bit nuts, a big punch up over a cartoon, i think any religion without a sense of humility or humour needs to lighten up a bit, mushrooms may be just what is needed here, and loads of nice joints dropped from a B96 and some nice tunes, free music falling from the sky, the Beatles or that band you play in, bet ya’ glad old hologram of baal was the final name hey? There’d be a riot down in Lakemba for sure.

    yes dear boy and they should follow that reading up with stepenwolf or way of zen and strap some captain beefheart to their sickened polluted eardrooms!theyll never get it sweety pie!so let us seerers continue to groove together like the small furry animals that we are with picts of lightfooted light.always dig your gear dearly p.s, hows the cleanse going?pps the leaf blowers are an extension of their blinding fear of death! i asked one of them to please stop and use a rake once,and all i got was a confused frightened look ,and an extended session of even harder blowing,god bless em!

    Dear Steve Kilbey,

    I want to say I am a little kid. I do like music. I think you have a nice song I can dance to. I can dance. I do like cheese, not Velveeta. I like Stilton. And especially Gorgonzola. And I can color, my mom said.

    I decided almost immediately to stop reading this blog. I didn’t want to know SK as a human, just as that voice singing me to sleep at night, but I can’t stop. It feels too good, he says so much, and continues to show me, since he has since ’88, when the church reached the boondocks, that there’s something better out there.

    The Unengineered Moment…
    Or do you think all moments
    are engineered?
    Speaking of being Shakespearienced,
    The sonnets swell
    unending,
    New generations of fish
    dart over fossils belows,
    Keeping to the depths,
    Never knowing the beach,
    Envious of those
    capable of sprouting legs,
    Scribbling their pentamenter tails
    like graffiti,
    liquid Nefertiti,
    in squid ink
    On the billboard bulk
    of a passing whale.

    Love you, man.

    You made me choke on my drink imagining Dick Cheney on a surfboard. The kind, loving side of me says, “Yes! Just expose him to the simple pleasures of life he’s probably forgotten, and maybe we can save him.”

    The less altruistic side of me says, “OMFG NO! I don’t wanna see him without his shirt on!”

    Trying to give something back!
    Hey I know you don’t need it, but what can I do as a fan, well nothing except buy your records and feel that I’m the one getting a good deal.
    Anyway I jumped on the Grant Lee Phillips forum a few weeks ago after he announced he was doing a church cover.
    I said (in the Forum-General Discussion-Post New Album)that people should check out the under-rated stuff The Church have been doing the past 10-15years.
    Anyway I was just hoping that I could get a few new converts for my favourite band and maybe they will buy all your albums.
    My Post (New Album) in general discussion has scored around 900 views. Hope each one buy every album you have made.
    Anyway in my own way that was the only way I could think of to give something back, raise the flag, spread the word and maybe convert a few to my church. Although, like the guy/gal said a few blogs ago I want to see you guys be the biggest band on the planet (you should be), but then again another part wants to keep you all to myself.
    Cheers
