this is the truth
i was pretty ropey
a week ago i was standin’ in the kitchen
strumming songs to nk as she cooked the dinner
and every now n then
id forget a chord or the words or both
inexplicably it would vanish from my mind
leaving me blank n empty
and nk would go
ooh
and i’d say no no
itll be allright on the night
and guess what….
it wasnt
i fucked n fumbled around
told funny n nonfunny anecdotes
i tried to just be myself
and quite frankly i was underwhelmed by me
and then every now n then
thru the tuning problems n amnesia problems
i would blast out a song
which was good enough to give me hope
but i was like a footy player having a bad day
the magic jus’ was not there
now the audience were lovely
about a hundred
lovely venue
lovely people
everything
matty d
jazz
the lot
and yet
why killer
im sitting here writing this for me
as well as you fiendss
and this aint a ploy to be all coy
so youll go
oh no stevie boy im sure you were good….!
no no it wasnt good
it was a shambolic bit of horsing around
as woulda done the lyneham high sk proud
afterwards the lovely promoter says
some songs you shouldnt maybe muck about in
this is hilarious
im almost 53 and people are still telling me not to muck about

whats fucking wrong with me?
why cant i be serious
why cant i knuckle down
sing the songs properly for the whole length
play right chords n notes
remember ye olde lyrics
and do it propply
now this is hard for fiendss from recent london show
to understand
there the killer ruled
and he pulverised himself against the music
and verily as olde as he was
did he rock!
but tonight…
im ashamed to be called the killer
i couldnt kill one semi crotchet
or nail a treble clef
but the people
like witnessing something alien
heres someone as confused as them
a bloke ballsing up and goofing off
honest almost unapologetically
its pathos/pathetic
its humour/mucking about
spontaneous/ unprofessional
its underdone malarkey n a real carryon
people came back n said
oh it was marvellous
what?
how could it be?
or is it?
i dunno
i cant be straight with myself even
such is the level of subtext in my mind
i dont know who i am
or what i will do
playing acc guitar n singing undoes me
im too used to bass
i cant adjust
and the wrong part of the brain
is thinking about the wrong things
everything collapses cos it aint ingrained
you see in london i knew what i was doing
plucking the bass
singing the songs
its like falling outta a tree for me
i am wired to do it
like driving a car
you just do it
but when i strum instead of play bass
its such a different thing
a wristy thing
the bass is all about fingers
not so much wrist action
mr humphries
look a mangey panther cant change his spots you know
anyway
wello was strange for me
i learnt that sometimes
my words n music will desert me
leave me hi n dry
n my humour fails
n im relying on sheer good will
tonite wello gave me it
n im thankful
they were a very nice bunch
thanks for yr patience wellotonians
tomorrow
well today actually
seeing its almost 2 in the morning
today
this evening
is christchurch
some one said
watch out there
there all working class riff raff there
i should be right at home then
jack the lad n his hi-jinks
send in the clowns
there ought to be clowns……;

    You remember that little show you played in Brisbane, early ’90s?

    Sure you do.

    “Spring Livid”, it was. Amphitheatre in Albert Park. Ed Kuepper on the bill and lots of others. Lovely sunny day. First and only time I ‘met’ you. Luverly purple shirt. Dumbstruck kid, I was, and you were kindly/patient (for which thankyou). Me and my mate went up and sat with you up on a bench, mumbling incoherantly before slinking off to buy some booze (“can’t you drink in here?” you asked me. It’s Queensland, mate. We do everything on the sly). Then my mate Mikey went up with his little jazz number and bent your ear about surfing.

    When you finally made the stage you were all over the place. Jokey. Monkeying about (“I told myself I wouldn’t get stoned today. Then this guy came up with a joint and guess what? I did” crowd in hysterics). Start/stop. Forgeting the words, fluffing your lines…deliberately (” ..despite your persperation”). You sang this gorgeous little song about “Dicky Plantagenet”, which you explained at great length. Never heard it again.

    Anyways, no-one likes to look into a mirror too long, least of all an old, old one; but I just wanted to say that it was one of the most memorable little show’s I’ve ever seen. What a performer.

    Even when you stink, you come up smelling of roses, auld salt.

    Killa,
    I’m NOT bein a yesman or an arselicker, but I bet no fucker was disappointed, y’know.
    1. everyone wanted to see you – a fuckin Steve Kilbey solo gig, that’s summat special, man.
    2. most people know full well that solo SK gigs can be like this and love it for what it is. The majority of the audience won’t have been thinking like that promoter.
    3. don’t go thinking you ‘let people down’ – see 1. & 2.
    4. Me, I ain’t had the chance to see you since the Blurred Crusade tour – I would’ve loved to have been there in Wello, no matter what.

    Every lead vocalist that I have ever seen live for an acoustic show messes up and/or fools around. This includes McCartney and Howard Jones. McCartney really struggles without his bass guitar. In 1989 and 1993 his all electric shows were flawless. In 2004 and 2005 he did a long acoustic interlude that was horrible.

    Shake it off Steve. You had a bad night. It was your first gig in how long? When I saw The Church…you guys were so tight that you couldn’t slip a dollar bill between you. I thought acoustic shows were supposed to be rather light and informal. Sit back and have a Jager and relax. Tomorrow’s a new day. Truth be told…I’d rather see Kilbey on a bad night than anyone else on a good night.

    Thomas Dolby:

    Howard Jones has two very good CDs. In The Running and People. Much better than his commercial music that made him famous. His concert was not very riveting. I’m not ashamed to be a huge (30 pounds overweight) Paul McCartney fan. A month ago in Rolling Stone Magazine Bob Dylan stated that Macca is the only person he is musically in awe of. I love The CHurch and Kilbey because they are so profound akin to Lennon. Macca is sunshine. They mix perfectly.

    Hi sk, NO,NO, it’s not true about you and the acoustic guitar, I’ve seen all your solo shows through the years in Melby (and that’s alot baybee!!) and apart from a couple of dodgy ones with Grant M, you always play beautifully, sing in tune AND remember the words, even the words to all the cover songs you do. Even at the Vegan Day gig last year, where it was freezing cold outside and your fingers were frozen, you still played a fantastic, perfect set AND your jokes were funny!! Please don’t let last night put you off playing solo again, experiencing an sk solo gig is pure ecstasy and magic, you’re one in a million sk, don’t give up….sk and his acoustic guitar rule, ok!!!
    Love you always,

    man don’t worry about it…you had an off one that’s all. most in the crowd probably didn’t even notice. now i know you’re a virgo…as am i…and you’re detail oriented and want it as close to perfect as possible…as do i. and you’re probably your harshest critic, so don’t beat yourself up over it. even if there were things that weren’t right, you probably still had a good vibe and that counts for a lot. and it’s what people pick up on more than some of the other stuff a good bit of the time. but you better get it right next time damn it!!! just kidding…you know that. i can imagine the switch to guitar fom bass and singing still would be difficult. most people find guitar and singing easier i think…but you’re just so used to doing it with bass. it blows me away how your vocal melodies and bass lines wrap around each other…and pull it off live. it’s hard for me singing back up and playing bass…some songs, just depending on what i’m playing…i just can’t do it, not at this point. anyway…babbling

    You certainly sound more relaxed with a bass. However you don’t make it easier on yourself by playing a 12 string.
    I know 12 strings can sometimes make a lovely sound but it sure takes some finger strength to tame those fuckers. I’ve been playing guitar for much of my life and i’m quite nible fingered on on a 6.
    12s are another ball game and i find summoning the strength to fret them properly makes my playing sound stiff an unfluid.
    Sure you can tune them down with a capo but they just don’t sound as good.
    Personaly i’m not into solo acoustc shows anyway.
    No matter how good the performer is , it’s still a sonicly limited format.
    I’d love to hear you with a celloist.

    I love Macca, Lennon and Harrison. Paul was the optimist popsong melodist, Lennon was the idealist visionary and George was the mystic. Kilbey’s a mixture of all three. He has John and George’s type of lyrics and vocals and Maccas ability to play so many instruments. I understand why many Church fans don’t like Macca but I’ll stand by him for his musical ingenuity until the day I transcend to another state. DYLAN AND BRIAN WILSON REVERE MACCA. ENOUGH SAID ! SO DOES DAVID GILMOUR!

    I’m sorry it didn’t go the way you wanted it to, Steve. Always sucks when you want to do something one way and it does work out — even if everyone else likes it.

    I do remember you noting here a while ago that solo shows were more stressful for you, but I think most people coming to your shows do understand that’s it’s an entirely different vibe than a full band show and so expect it to be more casual. And I think most of your fans rather like getting a more causal view of you.

    I’m similar to zebob with the social anxiety stuff in that many of the everyday tasks most people don’t even think about cause me great stress. Going to concerts — just as a audience member — can be excruciating. As a result I only go to shows by very special artists. I’m hoping someday to fight off panic and nausea and see one of your solo shows. 🙂

    awwww, now Steve pick your chin up.
    I am a sensitive being and I can totally relate.
    I’ve played solo and that’s a daunting task. minutes before (couple hours, really) playing i wanted to fake sickness. And even after playing sometimes I wish I’d faked sickness. :-)))))))))

    Dude, you rock!!!!! please come to America soon. I miss you.

    Steven…

    Who wants a work of art with no flaws in it ?

    Isn’t that why people still buy hand-painted works instead of digitally airbrushed pieces ??

    …everyone knows hand-made and a little bit shambolic is best.

    please don’t stop mucking about… the thing with going off the cuff is that u never really know where it’s all gonna go… and it does create some unique & memorable moments of the perfectly imperfect kind…

    Everyone has a bad day now & again Steve – you can’t let it get you down.

    I’ve got (it feels like) people drilling into my skull, and my back is sore and spasmy as all hell. I’m on prescription painkillers for god’s sake and I’ve never in my 36yrs been on those before. But I know that it will pass… everyone has bad days.

    Besides, as said by people up above – even your ‘dodgy’ shows are fun. It’s a treat just to see you live.. Geez man, I’d be happy to see you sitting on stage with a spliff just chatting with no music at all! You’ve got boundless charisma, brother steve, and that tends to come to the fore…

    get out and enjoy some scenery, get some natural beauty in ya to reinvigorate the bard.. sit on a mountaintop and enjoy a spliff..

    I love you & believe in you, steve, and I’m sending you happy vibes from UK… Believe in yourself.
