  • man woman life death infinity * the church
    yeah ha ha such an exciting time to be a fan of ol’ SK new church album is done and (fairy) dusted its not like much that came before with its new old sound not quite one thing or another pretty different pretty fresh     another century i gotta get directions off you the mirror flare could be anywhere yeah you probably already heard this song what a great leap forward this one is definitely one of the best things the church have ever done the word brilliant springs to mind but modesty has me refrain   submarine nature loves a winner we gonna end up some creatures dinner devil loves a sinner you were on the menu youre just a beginner weird progressive kraut rock song a whole new sound here too kinda charming jammy quality   for king knife a wicked little mannikin a squirrel and a bird i heard the show will start without you a childs song a fairy tale sung with wide eyed wonder by a naughty boy naive rock and english kids books from the 1950s   undersea fly makes a honey man bee sorta i can see the water you wanna take the rest of the stuff? everybody says that we can never get enough i say to band lets imagine a brand hyped up new band is in town and youre there and they come out n play their first number so then this song is the song we were hoping to hear   before the deluge well i never really had a clue my hands so full of sandals my feet so tender bare stumble in a cyclone of drones theyre watching everything we cannot see the most typical church track travelling music dark and nasty   i dont know […]
  • oh honey
    you all know everything here is true its just the way i tell it ive been a sponge for drugs and loud rocknroll and my once brilliant mind is now dark and haunted why you know when i was twenty years ago i flew to Los Angeles and played on david neils sessions for  what would become the wilderness years but dave had a huge stack of songs and oh honey was one of them since covered by that alt country rock band whose very name keeps escaping me the truth is its daves most fantastic song and an instant classic the saddest most burnt out song you ever heard in your life i know because i played on the version that dave recorded a demo in a place on sepulveda down in santa monica or something Oh honey that sunny day just faded to a dead white gray and people say strange things to me about you all the time but it just made him too damn sad and he shelved it imagine a cross between neil young and the stones at their saddest and most regretful oh honey was a knockout this is a terrible thing to admit here but after david died i started telling people i had written this song and in my own defence i must say that the descending bass line was actually my idea dave told me steve that damn bass line IS this song now! so it isnt entirely untrue that i kinda sorta did in a way write this song plus i suggested some words which david pretended to ignore but he later secretly adapted them n then denied to all they were mine so he wasnt the angel you may think i was telling all this to the captain as […]
  • fate heeler
    i’m my dream i live this life and in my life i live this dream and now my mind is truly blown away down the street asleep at the deal i got ripped off again and again but who is the real loser? the more i shot the more i missed the more i missed the less i could bear to shoot eventually the arrows i loosed well all were lost on a train to the northern beaches to meet with my friend or on a plane sitting in business class i was trying to chat up the female pilot she came out and and talked to me too except we hit some turbulence over the indian sea an unexpected jolt and i wake up in sydney and its freezing the flowers in the vases wilting inexorably the dust and cold clutter drift away then i dream im on the phone to someone going round and round and round im speaking some other language i cant understand what im saying but this is how i am anyway jotting down phrases to regurgitate in songs and poems i strumming my guitar in Cosa Met in Thailand in a cluster of cottages just back from the sea someone yells out to shut the fuck up..! but its too hot to sleep and my friend wants to hear her song we walk down the beach but the water is so warm there are no sharks she says as i gingerly enter the black oceans maw after our swim i pick up my guitar and in some strange time signature the guitar is detuned now and im too out of it to get it back in tune i like it just as much like that anyway says my friend more gone than me i […]

Violettown.com has a downloadable video, there's another smaller video here at Shadow Cabinet, and I'm also seeding a 96MB torrent.  Ozijimbob took a picture of the band during the performance.

April 12th '06: I asked the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra who did the arrangement, and they told me Christopher Gordon (IMDB) did the work, and Paul Stanhope did the brief piece of music after the song and before Cat Empire. Both are talented and accomplished Australian composers.

The Day After the Event...

Jonathan Sargeant let it be known on the Seance mailing list that...
the guy who designed and carried off the whole opening was interviewed on morning TV (our channel 9, the games broadcaster) here in Oz today.
When asked what his highlight of the whole event was, he said it was "working with the guys from The Church. They were great. That song is beautiful"
To which the interviewer said, "Yeah its been years since I've heard that song. What an incredible song." The newsreader actually ran onto the set at that point and interjected, "The Church - brilliant!"
