    this aint the northern hemisphere and here summer rules in royal blue and bursting green the surfers surf the dealers deal the users use the bills hit your  letterbox damp from the torrentials my back courtyard is an alluvial plain peopled by bugs and ants and spiders and snails and slugs the plants go on growing the cactus out from thorns spring delicate unanticipated flowers i smoke my weed i swim my laps i meet my friends i struggle with my money i get behind on everything i get confused by everything my mother has finally succumbed to forgetfulness and is going out now on a wave of mixed up memories the cafes are full a new one seems to spring up each day and there are the cashed up geezas and their bints sipping their java and munching on the smashed avocado on spelt bread that night they will drink boutique beers and snort some heavy cut coke through a rolled up ubiquitous fifty dollar bill they will watch net flix and order a svens pizza they will go to a bar where they have to shout over the music i have forgotten how i arrived in this place here in this peaceful warm bedroom where i sit and type and type there was music there was drugs there was violence there were crowds there were cops there was sex there was  a limo and an ambulance you were rich poor in the middle totally bankrupt its always summer you pickup your girlfriend in your datsun 120b you could get your bass amp cabinets in there dad always puts too much chlorine in the pool and your eyes are always red your nose is crimson with sunburn russell and johns hair has been bleached white by the summer and […]
  • bank error in your favour
    in the darkness before i was born in the oblivion that spawned me whole again and again to sing to steal to hammer my bass where the vortex sucked and the whirlpool engulfing before i was me before i was you before i was all of them in a moment of capture in the high resolution of the first rays of knowledge as the magic attacked my bones and i lost my mind and i lost my mind at a servo and i was swimming in the blackest sea and stuff was grabbing at my legs and women were slapping me around on the end of my leash and the eternal eludes us of necessity and the impermanence of absolutely everything you can name it was lovely to sink into it all they were singing lovely music in my ears as i sank fathoms it was my dream it was my life it was all made up and yes i was earnestly hemming away the evening of silk and i was moving away from the light of the day and i was fixed on a star and set over the city gates and the people at my shows shook all their heads anxiety was riding high on a roll the lightning jabbed the horizon the thunder fell down on coogee beach where the shadows are suntanned and within the whispers you can hear the sea the summer had us by the scalp and the hairdresser did the blonde streaks with a sneer and the magazines were so way out of date and the cigarette smoke curled like a beggar around a coin the screeching tyres and seagulls on arden street its a fish n chips kind of night i glide on the wheels of imagination through the surging crowds who […]

  • 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 […]

Great video interview with Marty
Monday, 01 February 2010

Very nice interview with Marty by InFrame.tv, talking about the band's chemistry. There's some great concert video (too short!) and don't forget to click the "outtake" button for a description of how the band writes together. More guesswork is involved than you might think!
