second sold out show at judith wright centre

finds the church relaxed and bopping on

things even out a little more

the gears start to lock into place

people remember bits and pieces that

are the icing on the songs cake

a flourish here

a tap there

a harmony a note a cymbal splash

i start to get into my songs characters

i try to imagine whos singing this song n why

i try to imagine whos listening

the bass becomes easier to play

my voice seems to linger in the air with less effort

oh how lovely to jam with jordens fantastic mixing

i hear my voice drift round the room in reverb

hanging there

and i can play around with it from the stage

just by giving more breath or more throat

the bass sounds big soft n warm

the way i like my bass to sound

my bass is a cushion for the song to sit in

the guitars and piano  are like the scenery and props

the drums are the songs engine

the words describe nebulous events

ideas

feelings

they are colours they are clues

clues to what oh i dunno

the song has no purpose except to make you feel good

how it does that even an old hand like me doesnt know

some voice told me to write songs

some voice i cant explain

my dad played the piano

my mum liked words

somehow that got mixed up in me

i saw the beatles i said fuck

i saw bobby dylan i said fuck

i saw rolling stones ditto

bolan n bowie ditto ditto

i go away for a while

when i come back i turned into myself

a voice says now

with all those aforementioned geezas in mind

go write some decent fucking songs

and at 16 i started

eventually i wrote something halfway decent

and bang thirty years flashes past

and we could do 20 nights at judy wrights

n never repeat one bloody song

and

whats more

theyd all be fairly topnotch songs

and the band ‘d do em proud

the guys are playing well you gonna enjoy this

all but 2 gigs now sold out on this tour

thanks that makes me feel good actually

we go up n down in popularity

but ok as long as its still possible to go up

yeah we played a pretty good show

i get on a roll with my jokes

at other times the spirit of comedy deserts me entirely

i definitely need to keep persevering

i could be a bit of a comic with a little more work

god suddenly i feel like i want to be good at everything

i want to serve my fellow human beings

by giving em a damn good show

wanna make em smile n cry too

and everything in between

yeah its gonna be a good tour

yesterday i went to eumundi market opposite joes w hole

i  got a foot reflexology from wendy sugars : highly recommended

boy i felt fucking stoned after that like i’d had a bag of real good drugs

i bought a wonderful painting of a caravan that was too cheap

125 bucks for an incredible original  piece of work

i bumped into my brother russell n amy  his missus n marlon my nephew

that wazza surprise

i bought 2 new hats

and i bought a cigar box guitar for 450 but the guy gave me a 600 one

a guitar with 3 strings made outta a cigar box well whattya know

played with a bottleneck and things on yer fingers (i havent got them yet)

some voice said buy this thing

i havent bought a guitar for years n years

so now im trying to learn to play it

its a lotta fun too

i’m gonna bring it out on stage as soon as i can play something good

meanwhile its a warm rainy night

skyped kids in sweden theyre good

ok

thats it

canberra n sydney next

much love

sk

    Steve,

    I heard Under The Milky Way and said fuck, I was on a long car trip with my sister and parents and the radio was all we had and most of the music on american radio was horrible, yet everytime we heard Milky Way it was Turn It Up!! I had never heard anything like it. I was only fifteen so as soon as we got to Panama City FLA I begged my Mom to take me to the record store. I bought Starfish and a cassete player. I spent my whole vacation fund on that album and player and it was the best purchase in my young life. A year later 16 now and able to drive myself I took my first road trip to Toronto and picked up Hindsight, Gold Afternoon Fix and the first four albums were re-released on Arista. The clerk noticed my Church selections and pointed me to The Slow Crack and Unearthed. Well I spent almost all of my weekend trip money so I went home the same day, played all of the cassetes and was still saying fuck!! There was no internet then and the search for more Church or solo releases was always on wherever I travelled, local sources were not good until I was about 22. I have never stopped and you and the band continue to amaze me with your releases. I saw the 30th tour here in Detroit at the Magic bag and it was one of the best Church shows I have ever seen, 6 total. I mentioned this a few post ago I hope you record some of the songs via El Momento or limited edition release for the upcoming album becuase these songs and they way you guys are playing them right now is mind blowing. Space Needle, Ionian Blues, Comedown, Mistress, Disarm, and Tear It All Away were mesmersing. The entire setlist needs to be recorded. Glad to hear your kids are doing well, it also nice to see you enjoying yourself and feeling the vibe you have been providing to me and your fans for years. Yes the songs make us feel good and we thank you.

    that’s what I always liked about the church, there was always some
    memorable part in a song. I’m glad you get into character and wonder
    who is singing these songs and why, because I do too. I still wonder
    about the lyrics on ‘Destination’– “Our instruments have no way of
    measuring this feeling, Can never cut below the floor, or penetrate the
    ceiling, In the space between our houses, some bones have been
    discovered, But our procession lurches on, as if we had recovered.”

    AWESOME !!!!!! FUCKIN AWESOME !!!!!!!!

    That was a great read !!!!! If you play that ‘cigar box guitar’ on stage…please have someone video it and post it up on Youtube for us poor old souls here in the states to enjoy. I am so glad that everything is rock n rolling with ya. Hopefully, so is the same with the Mrs. (for all of us that are hanging on for u and her…give us a thumbs up if thats cool). I hope Tiare is having someone HD videotaping this leg of the tour because I can betcha thousands would be sold here. Don’t bet against me cuz I got the second sight thing goin on and and I’m on a roll right now with predicting all kinds of stuff. “30 Years of the church” – An Intimate Space !!!! Now on HD DVD … yeah baby…it can be done and done well.

    For me it was 10 years old when I picked up a electric guitar-self taught-not a second of lessons- and Black Sabbath was the thing. Toni would shred that sound, a mix of reverb-delay-distortion. I copied it quickly. I was hooked. Than came a small man in stature but huge in heart and power-potential-performance. When I met Randy Rhoads and saw him play. I was in the presence of the all-time-greatest !!!! Classically taught by his mum and a perfectionist. I talked to him for almost an hour and he was so down to earth, you’d swear you were his friend for life. Than he was gone.

    Criss Olivia was my next major influence, I met him also…He was an incredible guitarist and did things that I never heard or seen before his band with his brother – SAVATAGE, set a standard in the early-mid-and late 80’s. He was so approachable-He wanted to talk to me and my young bandmates at age of 16. And sadly…again…he was taken from all of us to early in life.

    Than in 1984, I saw a new band from Australia that no one even heard of-‘the church’ !!!!! In Chicago…at the legendary Metro. I saw 2 guitarists that synced together as one-I was blown away and the bassist/singer was a smooth cool dude with a voice unlike I’ve ever heard. I chased their music, saw you live 13 times in 3 different states. Soundtrack of a lifetime. And now, after my 19yr old sound saw you last year and was so impressed with Peter and your ‘space rock’ sound as he tells his friends who now are his bandmates- and guess what — they are playing at a Old Town Music Fest this coming friday, December 4. Why do I tell you this…because they are playing a 9 minute original ‘space rock’ song influenced by who else…’the church’ !!!!!

    AsAlways,
    Darrin K.

    I hope those 5 angels of yours have the best Holiday they could ever have and Scarlett shines bright enough for you to see her glow so many miles and miles away.

      Can someone please post on this blog the setlist for this leg of the tour. I saw the tour here in Chicago in April 2010 and the setlist was pretty much the same across the country. I am curious if Steve, Peter, Marty, and Tim changed it up a bit.

          Any ideas or words thrown about amongst the guys…”Lets tape these shows” I believe the setlist is perfect, the stripped down feel and intimate feeling would come across perfectly on DVD. The comic exchanges are hilarious- You had my stomach hurting in the Park West 7 months ago. Peter was chiming in , and he is usually very reserve. You had Marty laughing so hard that he was trying to get back in sync and was still giggling. Yeah…you have another career right on the doorstep. The video of your ‘phone conversation’ regarding the reservation is CLASSIC. Any time I need a quick laugh I queue it up.

          Rock On Killer !!!!!!!

    That sounds like a smoothly running tour. Sounds very World class and Pro. As I sit in this cafe in Ocean Beach in San Diego, these little birds are always hoping around . I will give them some bits of my bagel. I never really noticed how Hobbit like they are and how they have it made. They are living in a little Utopia. Maybe they don’t have the intellectual capacity that human beings have,but they seem to be actualizing more than most humans are . They are locked in the now. They have no choice. They have no History, no worry, no fear of death. Maybe being a human being over-rated. .Who needs thumbs and cell phones anyways ? They sit in these little planting pots up on the wall and look at me. Strange little creatures. If you saw them for the 1st time, they would blow your mind. That is that “Beginners Mind” thing D.T Suzuki writes about. Seeing things afresh for the 1st time.

    Its awesome when a song touches you upon listening to it – you can literally feel it in your heart. But it really is icing on the cake to learn of the artists thoughts, feelings, inspirations behind the lyrics, the music itself, how it all comes together… it really brings so much more to the depth to the song. That is the beauty of your modern day blog. Too bad we didn’t have that with Lennon and so many other artists who came before the internet. There really is so much beauty in just sitting and listening to the words and the part each instrument plays in its construction. It’s a wonderful journey the length of the song.

    Once again you make me smile. So cool to hear your interpretation of the parts constructing your music. Gotta love it.

    Speaking of the voice telling you what to do. Don’t know if you are a Debussy fan, but he wrote some incredible stuff – Dances Sacred and Profane being one of my favorites. Anyway, he was a friend of Edgar Allen Poe, which adds to the spookiness. So Debussy claimed, his music was written automatically – you know where the hand just writes by the power of some unseen force. Interesting, no? Definitely spooky.

    I am so happy to hear that you are in such a good place…at least for the time being. Ah, and the body work is just what the doctor ordered. (Helped you find your footing, ha ha) Very good indeed!

    Hey Steve,
    Was recently watching a couple of my favourite Church clips – Electric Lash and Different Man and was wondering where they were filmed ?
    Looks like one of those pine forests in Canberra ?
    Wonderful, atmospheric clips and you boys looked very pretty way back then.

        For some reason I always imagined it to be in mid-winter,set in the perpetual twilight of one of those dark pine forests around Duffy or Rivett or somewhere like that.
        Looks really cold and misty wherever it was,anyway.

        So good to hear the tour is going so well, Steve….

        I’ve always wondered that myself,and never got around to asking.Now I know,I don’t want to know.I liked to imagine that it was Canberra,being such a familiar place to me and of course knowing there was that connection with the band.Are you sure it wasn’t Canberra?I don’t think I can adjust my mind after all these years……aaarrggghhhhhhh!Anyways the Murrumbidgee doesn’t run that far north 😉

          Wherever it was, I reckon it would be great inspiration for a future series of your paintings, Steve.
          The dark brooding sweep of the pine trees, the dappled light, the brightly attired figures of the band deep in the forest, muted light glinting off shimmering, silver guitars, etc, etc.
          I’m sure you would do this image justice….

    Steven Krut | 29 November 2010 at 1:36 pm #

    I’m really glad the tour is lifting your spirits, Steve. I was hoping that would happen. Yeah, you and The Church have an enormous catalog of top-notch songs. They’re an amazing, enduring testament to your talent and they definitely make me happy when I listen to them. I love your songs. I’ve heard you describe yourself as second-tier several times now and while I guess it’s true that you and the guys aren’t up there with Dylan, the Stones and Bowie (with critics and the public at large anyway), second-tier is not the same as second-rate. Don’t forget that those guys also stood on the shoulders of giants. You’ve written LOTS of songs that those “first-tierers” would be proud to have in their own catalogs. You’re a first-rate talent, no doubt about it.

    I wish there was some magical combination of keys on my keyboard that I could press to help out with the bad things you’re going through. I guess time and perspective are the only things that can help with that. If it makes you feel any better, your ARIA acceptance speech made such a big impression on me that I’ve moved you to a new room in my pantheon of heroes. It’s a larger room with a balcony and a lovely view of the sea. You’ll like it there. 🙂

    ~~~
    I’ve been thinking recently about getting myself a new guitar and
    for some reason its only now I realise that I have never actually bought a guitar before. I’ve been noodling round on a hand-me-down for about 20 years. wow, that long! never put a number on it before right now.
    I left it alone for about 3 years though, until a few months ago.
    Guess who inspired me to pick it up again…
    I’ve quite surprised myself with what I’ve come up with on it since then.
    would be interesting to see the cigar box guitar, what does it look like?

    TAZ | 29 November 2010 at 8:55 pm #

    I was reading over some of the comments that fans have left on here relating to when they first got turned on to the Church. I thought I’d pipe in becuase I think you should know….making music that influences people from many different walks of life all over the world is a pretty special thing. When the day comes when you move on to the next world, or next stage phase of consciousness, for whatever it’s worth, there must be some gratification in knowing that you’ve left something of value behind. Anyway, I am hoping that you believe such.

    Well anyway, I remember walking down the street of a busy part of Houston (TX) in my twenties with a friend of mine and we were sippin’ on some cold ones, heading on to a party. Cars were swooshing by, people yelling, hustle and bustle on a Friday night. Out of nowhere recounted the line outloud …”back in Metropolis, Circuses and Elephants…” Well, caught by suprise, my buddy spewed out his beer in shock at the appropriatenes of the line.

    I heard Milky Way the other night on an AM radio station in Arizona of all places and being an afficionado of the lo-fi, it sounded delightful. It had a color to it that spoke of raw melody. I began remeniscing when I first learned to play and sing that song, as so many of your musician fans have done I am confident. I was 17 at the time. I remember playing it on the guitar and singing it for a girl I was after back then. Man she was dazzled by that tune. She’d asked me to play it for her every time she came over for around 6 months or so. She was my first love. Well, what I thought love was back then anyway. Thanks for helping me steal that girl’s heart SK. Anyway, to this day, Starfish stands out as one of the best albums I have ever had the pleasure of listening to…. Antenna… NSEW… Reptile… Hotel Womb… Yeah, I’d gone back and got all the older and newer albums over the years as well. They are all good. But Starfish is a masterpiece. Even now you hear those tunes piped through PA’s in shopping plazas, over radio stations and open mic nights here in the states, etc, etc. How’s that for a shot of relevance? Sometimes when I don’t play for weeks and even months on end all I have to do is hear a Church tune and it makes me want to pick up my guitar and play…(just like yesterday).

    Anyway, I just wanted to float a few of those tid bits your way becuase… well because. I don’t know. Maybe there’s someone out there who you think doesn’t think you’re much in their eyes. I don’t know. Maybe even in your own. But I would offer that thinking such couldn’t be further from the truth.

    “i want to serve my fellow human beings” said mr. steve, a noble declaration of his true feelings, catch of glimpse of his and their musicality on the lighted stage, splendid, leave me weeping with thoughts of joy, knowing they’ve endured and employed their talents and share it with the rest of us, the world…oh give us another night to remember, the lights cascading about the musical aura below, like a trance, an English wind carrying me through the snow, comforting, nothing else to know but the moment i choose to hold…it’s beautiful in case you didn’t know, how the music endures and unfolds into the psyche of all of us, girl and boy…

    Hi Steve

    Would love to go to more Church concerts. Next time it would be nice to either have a larger venue or more concert nights. Personnally i really enjoyed the small venue but some of my friends couldnt get seats as it was sold out:(
    You even inspired me to pull out my old 12 string (which i had to restring).

    You have produced so many great songs I was really amazed at how full the sound was, it really felt like a much larger band than just the 4 of you.

    When are you coming back!!!!

    cheers

    i didnt say fuck i just remember thinking , or having a feeling of sort of looking over my shoulder , like i had just found something very important, and i couldnt figure out what to do next, with a touch of” have to start from scratch”..and a bit of “well, who do these guys think they are”i was instantly jealous, a great green barometer ..this is about the time we begin to invoke you …us in the US..visit soon

    I was at the first Judy, Judy, Judy show which was sublime; a good augury for the rest of the tour. Invisible, Comedown, 10000 Miles, Tear it all Away and Space Saviour were all highlights for me. I must admit that I first heard Space Saviour live on your last tour rather than on the album – I was a bit slow in getting that one – and it just floored me. Oh, and thanks for name-checking Ipswich in UTMW…

    You truly deserve the degree of personal happiness that reflects the pleasure that you’ve given to me and so many others through your music. I hope that you enjoy the rest of the tour and return to contented family life. The love for your girls has been so obvious from my sporadic readings of this blog.

    Cheers,
    Wayne (who bought his first Church record in Ipswich)
