  • my lost love
    on a summer night i saw you there the taste of tequila your cut off jeans the stones rattled in the ditches the comets shot in the sky the frogs warbling in the darkness the hedges lined the green stormy streets i touched your neck as you were driving dont stop you said smiling in a headlight oh your house is incredible said a voice in another room the furniture on all its different levels at the top of the stairs a darkening bedroom as thunder rumbling an immaculate selection of drinks fruits and teas all kinds of other interesting things the blue cats approach all the stuff hanging on the walls gods and stuff like that i guess we sit and talk i dont listen but i touch like its the most natural thing stroking her like you would stroke a fawn softly and with good intent the evening is laid on oh my little empath feeling her way forward in a harsh world she loves the creatures amassing much credit she could harm nothing in her dimmest dream shes a genie with her obsidian black eyes with the crescent iris with the deep vaulted heavens above revolving the stars andromeda titania virgo swept by and the storm abated to leave glorious clarity in the city where she lived a holiday was to be declared henceforth someday i suppose the arbours of her cactus gardens emerging from the rain like visitors the sway and sweep of her tide the warp and woof of her fabric the impending sentences as she spoke and her characteristic lilt long black hair pulled back she was so fucking languid lets go upstairs whispers a voice from another life follow me whispered the soft stars take my hand the sky tried to imply somehow […]

    doing yoga in my little shared courtyard doing garudasana blah blah blah im standing there quite stoned on weed and yoga the voice says enter the stillpoint and remain there so i do the feeling persists even after a day the stillpoint easy to say enter the stillpoint  hard to fucking enter the stillpoint yet miraculously i do in the stillpoint its marvellously calm all that thrashing around what does it add up to? i go to a party the praises and blames roll off my back impervious still in the stillpoint i float away on a cloud of detachment i just smile like a vacancy sign on the edge of town all that fucking music i wrote let it speak for itself tomorrow i will write more its gonna be alright my thoughts collide and collect in my empty head i listen to a bit of the new church album and i put it into an order and listen to em together yeah wow golly gee its sounded pretty good but what else would i say..? theres some strange and weird stuff on this one beautiful stuff too like another century if that aint one of the best songs ive ever been involved in i dont know what its a little masterpiece lush and romantic and ra ra ra i gotta toot this horn no one else is ha ha ha yeah man our new album oh god you gonna love this you gotta love this please dont let me down oh no i’m playing a thousand gigs i pop up everywhere i’m out there being a travelling minstrel and i burn down the road i duck n i weave and steve you know you deceive and are deceived i am high and low i am wise and so […]
Steve talks about Blurred Crusade
Friday, 01 January 1982

This interview mentions the name of the man, Ron Brown, who directed the videos for You Took and Almost With You, which were part of a short film to be shown in cinemas.  I saw Ron filming an interview with Marty in Melbourne a few years ago; I wonder what became of it? Interesting point: many of the BC songs were old and could have been on Of Skins and Heart.

RAM review Of Skins And Heart 1981
Friday, 12 June 1981

Nice, supportive review of the band's first album from RAM magazine of June 12 1981

Early interview with Steve and Richard, between first two albums
Thursday, 01 January 1981

This is an odd interview, mainly in the strangely business-like tone of Steve's answers.  He sounds like success is the most important thing on his mind and he's watching very closely how popular, or not, the band is. This is in stark contrast to how he was just a few years later, when the band are content to follow their own muse.  Still, it's rare to find early interviews, so I'm pleased to add this to the archive.

Early interview with Steve
Thursday, 01 January 1981

An interesting but short interview with Steve from very early on.

Early interview with Steve, describing other band members
Thursday, 01 January 1981

Unknown Australian source
1981 (Steve says Richard Ploog, who was born in Oct. 1962, was 19 years old)

A band interview from BEFORE the first album release
Thursday, 01 January 1981

This is an interesting article, where the journalist speaks to the band before the first album was released. They are listening to the album together with record company staff.  Notice phrases like "shifting units of this new product" and Steve wondering why a band that has only been together 2 months has an American manager (who jokes that Steve is already trying to "sound enigmatic"), and that Marty wants to play Madison Square Garden :)
