i run about weirdly
my world has devolved into a 3 dimensional slop
small weird creatures struggle and fight to be free of it
i never thought things could get so weird
i never thought things could be so strange
i never thought i guess
i never thought such thoughtless things
the cosmic all shudders to spit it all out
the universe convulses as it expels us
and we lie at last
outside of what? someone asks
why come here for the answers? someone else says
i think i know that voice
says another voice
i’m in another room says a fourth voice
i’m in another story…..
i wonder if there are any taxis out there
i got 9 dollars in my pocket…change from lunch
the clouds part for a moment
soft white sunlight pours down
i hit the road forward
and i keep on walkin’
what else is there to do?

    Darwin’s all over the beeb tonight and this seemed to have a relationship…….knowing how keen you are on evolution and that!!!!
    Keep walking……to blighty. We lurve you.
    Happenstance is amazing. I refuse to download pangea as it’s one less thing to devour on #23. You’re getting better and better, SK. Hope you’re not missing Ricky too much.
    All the best for the warm up gig.
    I may be many thousands of miles away but I’m ALWAYS in your corner.

    hellbound………….gotta order it thru churchmerch. i think it’s exclusive to the bands site tho not 100% sure on that (might as well order from the site as the profits go straight to the band). anyway, got an email early last week from the site saying my order had been shipped. now if it will just get here…..hope that helps

    My brother’s just killed my computer again, so I have to do it this way. But I had to confess that when my Swedish girlfriend left me it wasn’t because of alcohol but because she found me masturbating over the cover of Slow Crack. Dilate my sphinct with your schlong, Steven! Ah! I love it.

    He’s half white and half black, but that somehow makes him ‘black’.

    I concur with Paul Lightfoot and take it one step further; Happenstance is officially audio crack. Impossible to put down.

    SK – Kate said last night's gig was "ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC" The Church were "like a train"!!!

    Im picking up Coffee in Sydney but Im real happy to drown in glorious Pangaea at the moment. Is that Sophie's cello playing? – beautiful. I wrapped myself up in one song at a time, really absorbing each one. If they have to go digital, bands should release one song at a time, to appreciate the beauty of each gemstone, till you've finally got the whole 'necklace' and can sit back and admire a beautiful creation. (Well, Gunner fans might not appreciate that but its not a bad way to go – savouring each morsel as you go)

    To describe the new church songs briefly: heaven one day, paradise the rest.

    First day: mmm,this is pretty good, not bad at all. Its not Painkiller but it sounds so lovely
    2nd day: oh yeah,whats happening here? melting in the melodies
    3rd day: christ, did you hear that?!
    4th day: a psychedelic ressurrection in my headphones
    5th day: heaven. Cant contain my excitement; guitars groove through the melodies, voices echo beautifully in the distance, darkness and light
    6th day: paradise &
    no rest for the wicked.
    If all those psychedelic bands were still together, this is what they'd be laying down

    ps late last night (being miserable about not being in melbourne) i watched the movie Across the Universe, it made me cry but it was so joyful too, the music, man those Beatles, like you they wrote songs that made me feel so good but also a musical record of the times without you even realising; light to dark, real and abstract. Must say that Bono was good as the Doc.

    pss the pk song Ive heard (LLC) is pretty special too but today Im indulging in your luscious So Love May Find Us (it's a real GROWER). Anon, you'd have real trouble putting that in your mouth and sucking it!

    Sue Says………..

    “The rumour mill is whispering mid June for a north american tour. Fans are needed to get the word out in the street, on the airwaves, whatever you can do so the guys get a great turn out.

    Email offers of help, support, ideas, printing, radio etc to

    According to the net they will tour with Adam from Swervedriver as well as Grant Lee Buffalo.

    Lets hope this will also kick off to the UK, Europe and other regions as well!

    Yee har, australian tour kicks off tonite”

    Hi sk,

    Trying to catch up on the Time Being. Your Dad would be so proud of you, what a moving tribute you wrote about him. Your Mum described him so well in her book, wonder if she's writing part 2.

    Hope there's no argy bargy at the Church rehersals. Been a long time since I've seen MWP & PK. Haven't seen PK since the Basement show. Hope you are all well and enjoying your time together, all these new songs about to be heard soon, can't wait. Sure they will be different to last cd, but equally amazing, not sure what to expect which is good to have a surprise.

    Went to the Archibad and was so glad to see a painting by Reg Mombassa in the Sulman Prize. Good on him. There is no reason why one of your paintings can't be in it, you should enter one next year. You would have a good chance of winning it.

    Wishing you good vibes for the Church gigs. Can't believe my favourite band are back together again, Yeah!!!!

    Peace & love

    Dave, there was a little earthquake in Victoria last night. I think it was probably just the guys tuning up their guitars, Steve’s bass warming up for Pangaea… ripples and tremors still happening

    There was some random filming so you may all get to see some of the gig.

    Yes, yes, yes!!!, The Church were on fire last night, and you’re right Lilly haha ohmygod!!!, when Tantalised started the earth was a-rumblin’, it was like the Church had risen from the dead, the coastal crowd (and a few Melby fiendsss) went nuts throughout the whole 2hr set, songs we haven’t heard live for 20 years, then a bunch of new songs to blow away any Church obsessed mind!!!! I was so excited to see Marty’s beaten up guitars and sk’s plank of wood back in action, both sk and Marty switching instruments with sk on electric guitar wowww!!!
    Long live The Church and I thank the Godz for another show tonight, it’s gonna be amazing!!!!
