The original painting used for the cover of ULTC just sold on eBay for $8,280 AUD (approx. $6364 USD)! That has to please Steve no end.

Hey there!! Aww man, I totally forgot to pack my Churchy tshirt to wear yesterday at U2 (I bunked down for the last couple of nights with my buddies from Perth who are over in Melb for U2 at their hotel ... I couldn't face the hassle of getting home after the gigs on public transport ) It would of been so cool just to say hi, but yeah! Obviously it would of been pretty difficult with the amount of people queuing up!

I hope you guys had a brilliant time nonetheless .. I know I did

Wow, I would of thought that maybe SK/MWP may of slotted in a show in Adelaide next month .... never mind, you two should head back to Melbourne for the show here

I'd really love to attend the Church/Day on the Green show here in Melb/Vic .... but I have no idea how I'd get there without a car or transport

I'll try and figure somethin' out!

i'm not sure if it's a good idea to wear a U2 tshirt at a Church gig I might get in trouble from SK!

As for not spotting you, I would have had trouble finding my own mother in that huge line up!

I sure as hell wouldn't chance it. He can go on quite the tirade! And I know I wouldn't like to be on the receiving end of a SK tirade. I did get treated to a mini rant (about meet n greets) once on the phone though -- that was interesting.... I just got reeeaaalllyy quiet and suddenly he stopped and said "oh, sorry" and then we went on to something else.


I think I mentioned a while ago that I had a bootleg of one of the US shows and asked if any of you three wanted a copy...now I forget if anyone said yes. But I just got a couple more shows (Chicago and San Francisco) and both are a lot of fun (lots of drunken stoned hippie SK banter -- what more can you want? ) so if any of you want me to send you a set, just email me your addy and I'll get them off in the next week. Got my cd burner cranked up and a bunch of bubble envelopes at the ready, so catch me while I'm hot (I've already sent out six sets and have several more to go).

Here's a couple of fan reviews of the most recent Steve vs Marty gig. They sound as if they are a blast dammit!


Quote:
Last night's show was probably one of the top 3 Church-related shows I have yet to attend. SK was in the best mood I have ever seen him in. So many jokes and hoax, prancing around stage, I just can't say enough. Place was packed, nice t-shirts SK vs MWP, and they did songs I have not hear them do in decades!
Here is the list, hope this time there are no disagreements, but if there are, let me know...

Ritz
0408
Chromium
Disappear
Fly
One Day
Mistress
Into My Hands
Metropolis
Lost
Day 5
Tomorrow
My Little Problem
Buffalo
Wolf (this is an SK new song, I have heard it before at his solo gig at Sando and Wine Banq)
2 Places
Start To Bleed
Monday Morning
Life's a Gas
Keeper (my favourite version with MWP playing electric giving little tweaks and ambiance sounds)
Secret Corners (brought me to tears, so cool)
Tristesse
Wide Open Road (SK said this is on the new El Momento CD due in Jan.)
10,000
Providence
UTMW
7X7 (Hawkwind) -- MWP shredding his Fender to pieces
Reptile (SK insane on his bass, making funny animal sounds, and so on)


As you can see, quite a seriously long setlist. Delicious!
Also mentioned but not confirmed they might be performing on Australia Day and SK was doing a lovely impersonation of John Howard calling him up asking him to play. Also confirmed show, Dec. 23 at the Basement a "vegetarian, spacey, all-night Christmas show" -- this is great.
Quote:
STEVE KILBEY vs MARTY WILSON-PIPER

"Vs"? It didn't seem adversarial to me. No, it was more like two alpha dogs who've learned to rub along together over the years, come along to the Sando to take a jaunt around the neighbourhood they own. As it's no longer necessary to expend energy fighting for superiority over up-and-coming young pups (they're so clearly in charge), they're free to roam about razzing cats, pissing on trees, generally surveying their kingdom and barking up a storm for the sheer pleasure of it. Yeah, I'm already regretting this analogy too.

To cut to the chase: Stories! Jokes! Interpretive dance! Shorts and work boots! Guitar moves! Bass solos! Weird-out space rock! Crowd requests! Bags of oregano! Audiences with the Prime Minister! SK having to dab at the rock-sweat with a Winnie The Pooh towel: "This is so demeaning!" And that's not even touching on the songs. I must confess here that I'm not a long-time Church fan like most in the room, so a lot of the songs were unknown to me, but I paid special attention to the encore, as I'd promised Mark (poor thing had to leave early). So here they are, the last songs of the evening: 10,000 miles (?); Providence; Under The Milky Way (complete with salute and hand over the heart); My Astral Song (?); and to finish off, a fine acoustic pick through Reptile (killer riff) with SK twanging out spacey bleats and blurts on the bass, just to make MWP laugh. Awwwww. Ain't band-love grand??

For those who just can't get enough of that wunnerful SK/MWP stuff, they're playing a "space rock spectacular" (whatever the hell that means) at The Basement on 23 December. And for those discerning members of the music-appreciating public who need further acquaintance with the talented lads of Hitchcock's Regret, they're playing next at Spectrum on Oxford Street on 22 December, and Mark Moldre's helping out his bud Michael Carpenter at the Hopetoun next Wednesday, 6 December. All this great music coming at the pointy end of the year - think I'll have to keep my Best Gigs Of The Year review open right up until the very last day. Oooh, maybe the best are still to come? Bring 'em on!
I got a laugh out of the alpha dogs image! It's really quite accurate.

Oooh! and the "bags of oregano". Haha! Yeah, I'm sure that's what it was....

hehe, hey, I'm hearing ya!

My advice to counter PCB (that is, post-concert blues) is to take over the DVD player at home and play concert DVDs repeatedly until you start smiling again That live in Milan one (that comes with the U218 cd) has been working wonders especially!

Good luck!

oooh, and cool about the tshirt
