yeah yeah archduke ferdinand n all that
i dont know what vietnam was all about either..do you…?
yeah yeah …the domino theory…
i dont know anything about iraq..oh yeah…the WMDs
i dont know anything about the twin towers..oh yeah al kayda did it
i dont know about global warming..its a lie its not a lie
its fucking hot in australia
but there again its always been hot in summer in australia
everything got such a spin
what is the truth?
i got idiots pestering me about barack obama
look ..did i elect him or give him a nobel prize?
im just a singer in a band…what would i know…?
and what kind of stupid idiot gets his political opinions from a singer
yeah i like obama better than bush
i like the swans better than the roosters
so what?
i did a fucking painting of him called finally a good guy…gee….
so what?
i’m sure hes a puppet just like bush
we gonna have perpetual war cos that makes money
whoever the prez is
why ask me?
the world is run by international bankers
they been runnin’ it for a long time
they bring you the wars n depressions n recessions
its built into the system
the good guys are bad guys
the bad guys are reprehensible
and really at the end of the day
we say
fuck it as long as i got my (insert sport or booze or drug or hobby here)
the glorious dead of ww1 turning in their graves
BECAUSE THEY LOST THEIR YOUNG LIVES FOR NOTHING
who killed the kennedys…..yes mick was right..you n me
who killed marilyn and who killed jfk jr?
who killed the amazon forest
who melted the caps
who killed john lennon
who dropped smart bombs on suburbs of iraq
who dropped stupid bombs on london n berlin
who invented mustard gas n agent orange
not me baby
im just a singer in a rocknroll band
i dont know anything
im old n outta touch
the liberals the labours the conservatives the radicals
the anarchists the democrats the g.o.p.
the john birch and the unions and the commies n the druggies
and the whales
and the boat people
and pro anti abortion n gays n the state of israel
and the bible code and the harvesting of the middle class money
i dunno
i just sing songs
i just paint paintings
i write my opinion

george w bush is a caring considerate hero
dick cheney is an altruistic freedom fighter

iraq was a good thing
we’re giving em freedom but theyre too stupid to know

nothing means anything
if you think you know whats going on
cos you watched some news show
which tells ya what you wanna hear
yeah WW1 was a good thing wasnt it
those dead…how glorious are they…?
so glorious gettin’ a bayonet thru the chest
or gettin’ hung up on barbed wire
or gettin’ mustard gassed
glorious!
real glorious
no one can even agree what that war was about
who started it
why
and what was to be gained
no historian or scholar can agree
not even a couple of years after it finished
religion is a joke
christianity has achieved the opposite of all its goals
as had all the other isms
nothing amounts to anything with them isms
more farces n charades
believe me
the fix is in
and its in at the fucking top
but what would i know
im a singer
youd be stupid to believe anything i write here
because i sure dont n cant
so
yeah

    Hey Steve…love yur blog today…I just got back from Kansa s City Missouri with my girlfriend and KC Kicks Ass!

    They have a WWI Memorial (only one in the World or USA BTW!) and there are tons of bars n clubs n characters (Home of Hallmark too) n Broadway Coffee House! The peeps at the Buzzard Beach know what its all about …about drinkin' it up and talkin bout gettin nother beer.

    Hey, can I get a "Draw" of Boulevard Wheat (delicious local brew)and(no, it's not "draught", it's a "Draw" as the locals call it in Kansas City)…

    The home of Jazz, 18th & Vine, oh how Divine! Dave Attell visited "Davey's Stagecoach Uptown" on Comedy Central's Insomniac if anyone cares to check it out?…and The Church played at The Hurricane in 2004 and rocked out, what MORE do you want peeps!?

    There's a NEW Power & Light District, look it up on the internet…pretty futuristic and neat! "Kansas City Hey Hey Hey" as The Beatles once sang it, or "…standin' on the corner with my Baby, 18th & Vine and a Bottle of Kansas City wine" as a cool jazz singer once sang it…what a Great Place to Visit!

    I once lived one block from "Westport" and all the jazz n blues clubs, bars, musicians, bohemians, etc…again, will never forget seein' The Church in that neck of the woods too!!! Awesome!

    What's politics!? It's an agenda or illusion! Just like any other thing in this world, you can take it or leave it…I love debating politics myself, but I'll leave it for another time and space…only because I just got back from traveling, seeing new cities, meeting new peeps, new bars, new music, and the new life that is out there and more important!

    Long Live SK & The Church!

    You glazed over Obama yet went out of your way several times to call Bush a war criminal and compared him to Hitler at one point. Yet Obama is not a war criminal, simply a tool of the machine. More than likely hypocritical, inconsistent logic at best. Finally a good guy? Give me a break.

    Interesting topic… but I can’t or won’t get into politic’s here in your room; (that’s a sign of respect) not that I don’t have opinion’s, politics just get to hazy, to messed up, 2 rich 4 the richer, slightly sorer for the poorer, an this is about music…………………………………………………………………

    Yet my real point is based upon what you said about “inductee to the rock & roll hall of …”
    How is that the Talking heads’ made it into the “R&R-H-O-F?????????????????” an the Church maybe won’t…

    I’ve listened to the Talking heads music an liked it, an I could say more about David B… yet who’s the better artist? Steven K is!… the Church as a group are! this is politics! people!!! Vote where ya will….

    So my point is…. song for song, album 4 album, year too year, who should be in the rock & roll hall o’ fame? Talking heads…or the Church?

    Your music eclipses a many band’s in ‘the R&R-H-O-F’….

    So vote the Church into the rock & roll hall of fame you readers of the Time Being…!!!!! cuz its all political………. see…

    John…

    Hi Steve, calling the president of the US a war criminal and comparing him to hitler is a strong statement. Then when you are called on inconsistency of liking the new president obama who does the exact same thing as bush then you are "just a singer". A bit of a cop out. If Obama and Bush are both puppets how can one be a war criminal and one be a good guy. Either they are both puppets or both war criminals. Yet you compare one to hitler and admire and paint the other? Please explain. You are very intelligent guy, surely you must see the contradiction.

    dear mr anon
    1.obama inherited the situation in afghanistan
    i doubt there is much he could do there whichever way he tried to go…but he didnt start it…
    2. obama was awarded nobel prize…so its not just me who thinks hes a "good guy"
    3 . bush started a "war" in iraq and bombed plenty of innocent civilians. only yesterday i read an article by a british diplomat trying to avert the iraqi war on how gung ho bush was to have the war in there…he didnt care to wait or consider…of course his own neck was not at risk.
    i am not the only one to talk of bushs terrorist acts
    it is the desire of many people to see him stand trial for what he did ie bomb innocent women n kids in baghdad without even a declaration of war
    why dont you argue with the rest of the world about that….?

    4 so there you have it
    of course it is yer right to disagree
    which you have done
    now tell me
    why do you endlessly plague me with your same stupid thing over n over
    because you hate to see "w" slandered…
    or are you an axe grinding ninny trying to pick me up on an inconsistency…?
    i suspect the latter

    ok consider me "picked up"

    this correspondence is now closed
    i make no claim to consistency
    i deal in symbols
    and to the rest of us in the world
    obama is/was a symbol of hope/change
    maybe this was an illusion
    maybe im a hypocrite
    arent we all ?
    still
    i AM just a singer
    youd be a fool to be all obsessed with me
    but it seems like you are
    you should get a hobby or something
    ..youre so precious, arent you….?

    I couldn't have put it better myself, except if you don't know nothing, then you must know something!!

    Lost a lot of relatives myself in WWII due to their religion, so I've always felt that all these politicians and the religious fanatics that kill and destroy and have the audacity to say it's in the name of God or for the good of the country should be sent off to the remotest of islands to deal with it there, and let us peace loving people who just want to get on with life, do just that. If I weren't such a nice person, I'd actually send these morons to the front line of all the global chaos they cause so that they have to face the direct consequence of their decisions, but at the end of the day, I totally agree – its built into the system!

    Why did we get involved in all this middle eastern controversy we all ask. Too intricate for the average eggs like me to even ponder. We will never know what really goes on, only speculation.
    Hey Steve you must be very happy with such wonderfully positive reviews of The Church. Congratulations on your amazing abilities. Linda x

    The opinions & creative output of musos & artists does hold quite a bit of sway, don't underestimate it!
    You're kinda (whether you like it or not) the Heroes of popular culture… & often get put up on the old pedestal. Look at how many visitors you've had to your blog, pretty good for an "old n outta touch ….singer " But just as your art inspires & sustains many, it obviously provokes others! Great, it's working Mr K!!

    Lets face it, nearly everyone (esp. most youth) are disenchanted & distrustful of pollies. Yet humans seem to need to maintain a shred of hope/optimism that things can improve. Obama hooked into that, (so did Kevin), so they were victorious, but they have also inherited a heavy Legacy from their predecessors . Now the masses are waiting for them to deliver (or have already written them off)……

    Collectively, we're all responsible for this plight we find ourselves in, we need to resist apathy (& depression), maintain our Compassion & remain vigilant. BEWARE THE SPIN DOCTORS!

    Know you're not really into hip-hop Mr K, but check out the Herd's clip '2020' (really good vid. IMHO).
    I was filming the Herd Last NYE @ Woodford Fest. & the very young crowd (10 000+) went wild when they sang this & 'The King is Dead', which they wrote about Johhny but dedicated to Obama….the atmosphere was electric.

    Who says the kids today don't care
    For some reason, it gave me hope…..

    The atrocities that man has lethally perpetrated against peaceful people, tribes and the entire animal kingdom is unpardonable.

    Steve,

    I’ve noticed that some people love a political discussion/ argument especially with someone who is diametrically the opposite in view. But personally, I hate it when the ttb blog goes there. I don’t know, in my mind I reckon, politics is just so discordant, so unmusical… incomprehensible ..whatever.

    Sometimes in your music or on your blog you touch on some rather profound things. You may not even be aware that you’re doing it. I mean, it may not be embedded in your awareness that you know some things but I think a deeper part of you knows more than you realize. Slow down a bit dear one. Your genius keeps you from finding your peace. That’s what I think but what do I know? I’m just a middle- aged white female hillbilly.

    I agree that both bush and obama are somewhat puppets to special interest. What I do notice is that under bush there was a daily drumbeat of anti-war sentiment and every death magnified by press and by, respectfully Kilbey, people like you. Now that obama has sent many more thousands of troops and there are often times when innocent civilians are killed in afghanistan, but there is complete silence on the matter from the same people who were anti-war under bush. For instance you have not mentioned Obama and war once Kilbey, while mentioning Bush and war dozens of times. Bush killing civilians on purpose or enjoying the war is simply ludicrous. It occurs to me that the hatred was mostly of George Bush, not of the war itself or there would be equal indignation at Obamas escalation.

    Have you heard the comment "if you are an artist and you haven't offended someone, you are doing something wrong"? Obviously you are doing a lot right, Steve! I don't always agree with you (trying Bush and other for war crimes is one of our differences. While I think Bush and others are guilty of war crimes, I think trying them would be a distraction from trying to help people who are still suffering from their actions. While we should be able to do both, we tend to focus on the one with the most tabloid type action which would be the trial and ignore the harder, yet more important work. Of course, if we ever complete that work, I'm fine with a war crimes trial. War crimes don't have a statute of limitations.), but I don't just deal with people I always agree with. That would be damned boring.

    Review from Rave Magazine #919 Dec 1-7 2009

    THE CHURCH / ASTREETLIGHTSONG
    The Great Northern Hotel – Fri Nov 27
    A legendary live venue, Byron Bay’s Great Northern serves as a welcoming shelter from the marauding throngs of schoolies this Friday night. Unbothered by the alcohol-fuelled pandemonium outside, Sydney dream-popsters Astreetlightsong treat us to songs from the well-received Ocean Floor EP and some punchier new material. Singer Craig leads the Depth Charge (also the set’s best number) from behind his keyboard as the trio revisit the ‘80s with
    huge drums and melodic electric 12-string breaks – in short, all highly appropriate.
    Catching The Church on the first night of their tour is a must-do for every convert, and this rabid
    fan abides again. Like earlier in the year, the cosmic four-piece open with Tantalized, “crazy Russian monk” look-sporting Marty Willson-Piper fervently hammering
    his Rickenbacker. The slow-burning Block and Day 5 continue the familiar sonic walk, which ignites again with the lightning, 12-string-propelled NSEW. From
    the praised latest album Untitled #23, Happenstance wraps the room in E-bow bliss while Forget Yourself’s classical guitar-laced Theatre & Its Double gets its first
    live airing in five years. The surprise spot, however, is
    reserved for a triumphant cover of Smashing Pumpkins’ Disarm, Steve Kilbey belting out the mantra-like lyrics with pathos unattained by Billy Corgan. We’re then back in Untitled territory with Deadman’s Hand and Pangaea, upon which Steve is presented with flowers. A cult Church staple from 1982, Psychedelic superjam You Took is blasted out in its full “paisley underground” glory, guitar guru Peter Koppes emitting shards of freestyle noise from his Fender; recent single Operetta has the Sydneysiders cool off a little before they end the main set with the perennial Under The Milky Way Tonight and the ever-serpentine Reptile.
    The Blurred Crusade isn’t over yet, though, and we get three encores including Space Saviour, Myrrh and the heart-tugging Hotel Womb. “It’s a wonderful world,”
    sings Steve, the words still ringing in our heads as we exit the Northern and cut through the Byron chaos.
    There’s still nothing quite like seeing The Church.

    Obama is a statue of taxes, immobility, socialism, same control(like Carter days that we're repeating but only the younger generation doesn't remember)..old socialist gov control ways that we should huv learned from the liberal Carter paradox long-ago called socialist control..why start something old that has already been tried!? Peep got tired of this so Reagan was elected a reformed Liberal against Liberals it was so bad!

    Bush didn't bring the war in Iraq. "Bin Laden" DID and Al Quada brought on 9/11…NOT BUSH!? WTF!? What r u peeps thinking!? Obama's a puppet to the D.O.D and will do whatever they need to do in order to keep national defense strong..Obama doesn't agree for staying in Iraq,but WE HAVE TO stay and ALWAYS WILL because freedom depends on it!

    We will never leave, just like Germany from WWII..we're there to stay! So, where does that lead us you ask? We should be looking for less taxes, more employment (btw unemployment is in the double digits now), a strong economy, or r we really lookin 4 a less Green-crazed/non-smoking society…u people HAVE TO GET A GRIP and take hold..take care of yourself and don't worry about everyone else. This causes instability and craziness, just remember how the "Salem Witch Trials" started.

    That is the same thing that is happening today…mass hysteria, simplicity, silliness really, a bunch of kids started that, and that is what I'm reminded of today with society thinking of Bush, a bunch of little girls starteing false mass hysteria to what Bush has done, more than Obama will EVER Do, spread freedom!

    Party n2 | 1 December 2009 at 8:28 am #

    What happened to freedom, well, you know what's happening to them right now…people are blaming each other and everyone else for issues, problems, silly things, which NONE are TRUE and All are FALSE…mark my word, history repeats itself and the "Fall of Rome" is Upon Us if we don't get hold of ourselves & quit worrying about everyone else, instead of worrying about our own damn lives instead of trivia…has Reality TV done this to us? Most likely so, so snap out of it…instead of watching everyone else please watch yourself for a change, you might be surprised on how sensitive you are to other people and the environment…live your life and not anyone else's, otherwise you take their freedom away and the dignity within yourself and our nation.

    Why does the Gov have to control everything like Obama wants to do? Tax everyone, tell everyone what to do? Because the populace wants to pay the price i guess? Can we afford it, NO! Why not live like a true Republic that we were meant to be who wants to live freedom like Thomas Jefferson once said (BTW he was a tobacco grower, tobacco smoker n dope grower n smoker, sex addict, vineyard n wine grower, drinker, etc …peeps left him alone and his FREEDOMS like they should leave people alone today…that's the basis of freedom, just SIMPLE FREEDOM that hypocrite-smoking-Obama wants to take away from everyone really soon just because the Dems want power, last time they had power was from Social Security and NOW we have to live with it…shameful.

    Look at Ben Franklin, his basic freedoms would be erased today, smoking, drinking, womanizing, dopesmoking, puffing, eating meat, praying for the almighty, but not under the Liberal Agenda)…man, this society has become a bunch of winers, cry babies, wimps, ninnies really…think about our for-fathers and what they did for freedom, we are doing the VERY OPPOSITE…taxes, restrictions, laws, regulations, selling out to China, cap n trade, global warming, lol, etc…that's NOT what America, The World, and Freedom is about…Busch was not that bad, he ousted a rapist and terrorist named Saddam Hussain, many families know this & honor his hanging, let that be known that if your family came across this Tyrant, be forewarned!

    Obama n friends call Bush a terrorist,LOL, Come On People!!!?? WTF? Bush and Obama or NOT terrorists, but if anyone is a hypocrite it is Obama… I don't see him fighting any terrorists, his regime got rid of the word "Terrorist".

    "…im just a singer in a band…what would i know…?
    and what kind of stupid idiot gets his political opinions from a singer…"

    It's SO refreshing to hear a musician/actor/entertainer/performer, etc. be SO candid.

    I remember Brad Pitt being asked his opinion on some international affair and his response was (paraphrasing): I'm paid to put on make-up and play make-believe. I'm a fuckin' actor. What do I know."

    EXACTLY!

    We all have our beliefs, opinions, quirks, faults and so forth and for God's sake, the very LAST place to get the truth is from the mainstream media. Ugh!!

    Generally speaking, I hate politicians, some more than others.

    I may not always agree with you about certain things or people, but that doesn't stop me from admiring your musical/artistic contribution to this hurting world.

    Keep on rockin' Steve. You're OK with me. :-))

    My cousin was a D.C. lawyer. He said they are all corrupt, both parties. You folks on here who think you know what's going on probably you know nothing. They will steal from you if they can, one way or another. They will say they are doing it in your name, in the name of security, they will say whatever gets you to support them. Some of you respond to the left, some to the right. You're all Pavlov dogs. You think some ideology left or right will save you and make things better. I bet it won't. I bet you know next to nothing. Turn off those idiotic pundits, both left and right. They exist to program the robots that listen to them. Turn off the TV news. Those people don't know anything either. I recommend just popping in the Church.
