  • downtime
    my flat is freezing its winter in all my dreams here its winter in and out tricked n fooled n frozen n burnt my old skin stretched taut by the coldness of the sea pool and the dry electric poison heat from the fire  its very quiet i am quite alone with myself dark corridors flung open within my brilliant mind and the inky blacknesses spill out and i withdraw down in the fainting whirl oblivion at the other end in the darkest darkness where its so still there i lie awhile everywhere and nowhere i travelled out and above the city i flew up against the softly spitting cold rain i moved like a jealous thought thru the greenish light elementals are following me the word cackling comes to mind although they are making no sound oh there is so much going on you really wouldnt believe it i saw everything now i know everything everything i never wanted to know but there you go i want to fade away to rippling white my mind thinks too much i cant switch it off i am trapped in here with all these thoughts it feels unbearable from second to long second and yet i still endure it this machine needs to be switched off now its burning out against itself i lose chunks of my self ripped off by friction in my bed i groan no doubt but no one to hear me i lie shivering in my new black sheets curled up like a broken eel in a black creek i twitch and i talk as slumber in the umbrae all my little baby girls are in pain i gotta fix everything again its impossible but i gotta make everything right even sisyphus would  laugh a hundred people are shaking me steve […]

    Conversations With Kilbey Part Two: Lying For Love   When did you first take heroin? Nineteeen-ninety. What was happening in your life that led you to heroin? Nothing really. A friend of mine offered it to me one night, took me unawares, and I had a snort, liked it, and became addicted. For ten years. Were you trying to quit during that period, or only towards the end? I was always plotting to get off, but not trying. You always heard that at the dealer’s house – I’m stopping next Tuesday! I’m stopping tomorrow! This is the last time! We all had plans for going cold turkey and being locked in our room. But you would never hear a sick junkie saying he was going to stop. The only junkies who promised they were stopping were those who had just scored or were about to score. Very occasionally you’d meet someone who’d say, I’m never stopping. I know someone like that. Thirty years later, they’re still on it. But that’s rare. Most of them are planning to stop, because life becomes a misery. At what point did you become aware that it was more of a misery than a joy? It’s a bit like meeting someone for the first time and being knocked out by them. This is the best person I ever met in my life! I love everything about them! Then you start noticing things. They’re a bit of a bully. Or a bit of a thief. And eventually one day you realise you hate everything about them. I remember the first time I decided to stop to see what would happen. It was terrible, agony, miserable. And I began to fear withdrawals more than anything else. More than being arrested. Withdrawal from heroin is so awful, so […]

    Conversations With Kilbey Part One: “Once I’ve Started I Don’t Stop” Tim Earnshaw 2017   Steve Kilbey. A man out of time and place. He should be strolling with J-K Huysmans in turn-of-the-century Paris, twirling a cane. Flat on his back in an opium haze next to Coleridge. Posing as Jupiter for Gustave Moreau in a Haussmann salon. Punching Aleister Crowley on the jaw in the Himalayas. Not in Australia, not here, not now. He’s a bohemian, a true bohemian, a hothouse flower on the outskirts of the back of beyond. A dandy and a rake. Ageless – the cheekbones, the hair, the sharp good looks and skinny shirts. What’s he on? His room is cluttered with books and pictures. A portrait of a High Court Judge he’s working on (it’s beautiful, she’s beautiful). It’s an artist’s home, full of life and work. And that’s his secret; the work, the Great Work. He never stops. The music and the writing and the painting, he’s burning up with it. Do you remember your dreams? “I carry vague impressions of them around. I smoke dope every night, so I usually forget them in the morning. The details vanish. Ninety per cent of my dreams are unpleasant. They’re often of regret, searching, trying to achieve an impossible task, Sisyphus pushing the rock up the hill. Time’s running out, pressure and anxiety. Wake up in the morning like I haven’t had any rest at all.” Do you hear music in your dreams? “I’ve woken up with songs in my head but I’m not quick enough to jump up and catch them. I think I’ve dreamed some great songs but they’ve evaporated.” When you’re composing, do you think you might be drawing on this forgotten material? “No. It’s gone. I had a toy as a […]

I'm assembling this collection long after the album was released, so it seems easiest to group them together into chunks.
