i am the white hippy moses
yonder lies the land of soy milk n manuka honey
i am a stoned martyr of space rock
st steven the second
the time being
some name me the freckle faced killah
others invoke me as sk
sometimes nevets when things are in reverse
i have been sent to sing this lullabye for you
i am the alpha
and the centauri
i am also a virgo with type o blood
my drivers licence expires 22/11/2006 A.D.
i have escaped from the “straights”
and i lead my people across the desserts
and wilda-nesses
out of slavery to gossip mags, tv and boy bands
i have parted the sea of mundanity
these are the commandments of my decka-logue
1 thou shalt not kill or eat killed things
2 thou shalt turn off tv +microwave+gasguzzlah
3 thou shalt buy all my merch n dice
4 thou shalt send free space rock cds etc to po box 7779,
bondi beach, nsw aust2026 but probably get no thanx or
5 thou shalt do yoga chi gong swim-swim n walk evareeware
6 thou canst smoke the sacramental herb whenever you like(baybee)
7 thou shalt attend enmore tivoli n whatever it is in mellbin(if poss)
8 thou shalt try n understand
9 thou shalt not worship actors
10 a big fat hen

i am anathema to unimaginitive turkeys
in my right hand i hold the bottle of grape juice
in my left i hold the fender bass
52 years in the southern hemisphere
my veneers have been blasted by the sun and wind
my methods are random n chance
a real idiot savant
i stumble around in sound
and come up with my humble offering
to the great ones gone before me
yer lennons
yer dylans
yer bolans n bowies
yer floydwinds n enos
yer harleys n nelsons n stranges
yer foxxes
yer krautrockers
yer youngsteens n tomverlainesmith
i am the intersection of all these things
where parallel lines do truly converge
ancient nineveh n magnetic fields
i am the anachronism
i am king midas sideways
i am the reasonable reason
the unanswerable answer
those who seek me are few yet well rewarded
a high n lonely destiny said the nephews magician
i have delusions of grandeur
i have an ipodd in a black rubber skin
i have it on now as i listen to mare vaporum
if you think youve heard space rock
wait till you hear mimesis my children
i am determined to explore other realms n possibilities
i do not, have not let feeble minded criticisers
sway me from my mission
i am an egotistical yet modest man
i am old yes but so much younger than most
i came into this world 13 9 1954 A.S.K
i have been around much much longer than that
so too you my flokk, if you could but beleave it
i am the summoner of racquets with my 4 string wand
i wander slightly ahead of the kick
i hover n i glide n i propel
i am the surrealistic pillar
i am the king edward lear with my five daughters
i am a lewis carroll on drugs
i am aseeking xanadu
i am a refugee from politics wars n fluoro office wasteland
i am the 1st son of a 1st son of a 1st son
i am a son of a gun and a son of a bitch
i love to talk about myself
i love to make grand pronouncements
i love to be loved
i hate to be loved
i hate to be hated
but i never love to be hated
i protest the right to do what i want with my own consciousness
i dispute anyone anywheres right to kill anything for any reason
i love space rock
i love naive painters
i love arthur rimbaud n dylan thomas
i love cs lewis n melvyn peake
i love the twilight zone n
manuel on the isle of marvels
i need subtlety sometimes
i crave fine thoughts n original thinkers
i am forgiven at last
i am trying
i am leading you towards….?
i am the white hippy moses
amen jewel

    “those who seek me are few yet well rewarded…”

    and what a reward it is!!! i am honored and priviledged to be amongst the lucky few. i’ve enjoyed being rewarded for the last 21 years, and hopefully will continue to be for the next 21.

    long live the church.

    nice one today, steve. however, you are oh sooooo much more complex than this. but then, how do you sum up somebody like steve kilbey??!?!?!!

    Thank you for your guidance W.H.M., honestly, we’d be lost without you! I would have loved to have heard Charlton Heston belt out those commandments ha ha…much better than the original!

    What’s this about “if poss” in commandment #7???? If it aint gonna happen, please tell us and put me out my misery:(
    (#4 could be asking for trouble….hee hee)

    i like the 10th commandment. perhaps it should be the 11th?

    and craving original thinkers is probably my number 1 desire this time around.

    miss grove

    p.s. if that’s your real p.o. box, i imagine that soon you will be inundated with space rocks (not from me, tho. if anything, i’d be sending some rarities from the madcap).

    Inoue and Mare, Steve, you’ve been playing my language all week, it seems!

    I’m not one to self-promote, ordinarily, but if you click on my site, there’s a free podcast of everything ambient–OΓΆphoi, lots of nice stuff, think of it as a record swap from a stranger in the US, maybe even some things you don’t know about yet. It’s all very quiet.

    Another one for The Vox to read on CD!

    Over the years, I came to know a great many grownups. My opinion of them never improved. In time, I stopped showing my drawing, and never again mentioned boa constrictors, elephants, or stars – instead, I would talk about golf, money, politics, and neckties, and everyone was pleased to have met such a sensible man.

    lov ya SK!!

    Why didn’t you just ask me directly that you wanted more space music?!! I’ve got some more stuff that’ll curl your cerebellum and float you outta your room. Walls melt, time suspends, OBE’s, the whole nine yards. But you better devote an entire blog to me and how I have led you to previously uncharted spectral realms of ambient ecstasy. OK?

    and i lead my people across the desserts

    out of slavery”

    someone caled me “straight edge” the other day
    another said “God” wanted to forgive me, but couldn’t
    until i renounced my
    self seeking ways
    i dunno what I am
    if i wasn’t bald
    ….maybe i’d have long hippy hair
    if i smoked dope
    maybe i’d smoke dope
    mostly i just lie around
    sit or walk
    and colour in the rest
    with activity of
    varying degrees
    of enlightenment and/or ignorance
    i have escaped from the
    tyrants and have taught myself
    (and maybe others in the process)
    a better way
    to live

    does anyone listen
    or care

    who knows

    just do what you do Steve

    let we
    the deluded gooseballs

    I’m having trouble with number 10….
    but i like this hippy moses dude so far.

    yesterday i re arranged my whole shedule, cancelled things organised dog sitter, work arrangements, all that jazz… thinking tonight was revsby, for some reason i was under a glamour, dead ceratain tonight i’d be heading off past the bends, outta my old comfort zone into the strange areas of western sydney i am unfamiliar with, and at 9 this morning i’m asking my friend how i get there, struggling with the complex directions which i instantly forget (but pretended i didn’t), anyways it comes up in conversation that it’s the 23rd not the 30th, to which i sink into a confused and somewhat frenzed search through calanders and diarys and scraps of paper to confirm i am totally out of the loop. now this aways happens to me before a church show, i am notorious for driving to venues a week before (never thank god after) the event. is there some syndrome associatted with this or should i start smoking more with the green goddess?
