The Time Being | Steve Kilbey
  • fatigues setting in
    a long night lurching down the road in my black bunk like a cryogenic time traveller i shiver and shudder and i fret over the potholes in my brain have i ever been here before..how would i know another america another kilbey another era another guitar another gig another ride oh but sweet hot summer burns all around the greenery and the scenery and the long hauls the memory dreams other times other tours other eyes have seen it all the audiences oh the audiences they clap and cheer and shout as the music comes out we accelerate climbing above the turbulence in the theatre of absurdly beautiful birdsong the guitars chirp in my stratosphere casting  squalls of notes the drums beat on no one asks why in my mirror theres no one there or home we swoop low over mountain range i wake up and blow my mind with good music i roll along on all my songs tremolo vibrato crescendo so tired tho exhausted i go n have a little lie down somewhere  
  • as yer name gets hotter and yer heart grows cold
    touring baby you gotta love it we play a gig in an old church in pittsburgh we play some big theatre in royal oak michigan the lights have dazzled me the sound has baffled me my own words resound at night with buses engine in the blackness of my air conditioned bunk the bus lurches on the fans get autographs and pictures i get to kiss n cuddle guys wives with their full encouragement as they snap pic after pic hey thats showbiz! .. right…? my bass practically plays itself by now i am cut free and adrift the band is sounding great says old mr modesty me ok meet n greet n soundcheck ahoy thats a performance in itself now see you soon sk
  • her life was saved by rocknroll yeah baby rocknroll
    the crying guitars wept up by the mid 20th century will rail against the dyeing of the fleeting light i’m on tour just like i dreamed when i was kid little lamb when i was jung oh so long ago so many moons and dunes after staying in hotels gliding through the american summer days like a dream i meet and greet the fans i am stunned to see they are all doctors and lawyers imagine their serious complicated lives and then they listen to the church to forget themselves i think thats kinder cool i love everyone who loves the band if they have heeded this vague call gigs fly by and out of memory i do yoga and stay tuned i am sensible and healthy in crowded rooms and vast lonely places in the humidity and the A.C.’s icy blast in the drudgery and romance in the packing and unpacking in the stupidity and the brilliance in the limelight and in the emptiness in the anticipation and in the release in the many and in the only only one goddess of music lay your favour on me babe saraswati out there some where jamming down her sacred groove many splendid evening the strings i pull go right through them a piano falls from the sky and crushes my shadow the notes explode radiating out in arcing cadences bass a serpent wriggling in my earth like worm i plug in and i’m flying through cities like a witch the magic comes when it wants it goes when it wants it is elusive illusive and divisive magic god music yoga peace pot a secret transmission from beyond via a daft old popsinger what is music anyway i still don’t understand what is a song even? what is your bass guitar? what is […]
  • big apple heatwave rocknroll etc (just the usual…)
    lets see last time i wrote anything but damn I’ve lost track we played in philly we played in a huge round tent at cape cod george who is a local fire lieutenant and his friend chris pick up me and haugie and take us to the cape cod beach wow water a lovely temperature and i just love the east coast beaches in summer and i love how forlorn they are in winter too but this beach was hot and sunny george and chris had cold waters and towels and deckchairs and everything these guys might have been big and talked like tony soprano(to my uneducated ears) but they were fucking lovely geezers and george even shouted us breakfast even though he had none himself it was so cool to hang with those guys later on chris got excited at the show and was standing up yelling out stuff but it was fucking hilarious banter and i was smiling my head off the show at the cape cod gig was ultra short but the crowd went bananas they go a bit more bananas for the furs but thats ok because the furs are pretty good richard butler has one of the most instantly recognisable voices in rocknroll i have always admired and rated him since the first record he is a cool guy and he and the rest of the furs and crew are gentlemen except their front of house person and their keyboard player who are real ladies its a great treat for people to see two vintage bands who still are rocking music for discerning adults maybe I’ve run out of definitions sitting in back of bus now riding into nyc irving plaza tonight important gig i guess the church will rock you can be sure of […]
