Strings arranged by Aaron Trew

'Song for Debby and James' words by D. Wikel

'The Wild East' written by Frank Kearns and Steve Kilbey

Thank you Simon Polinski for the mastering favour, I owe you one!
Thanks to Aaron and Frank for the music.
And as usual a huge applause for John Tehranian, David Rundle and Kip McClanahan for without whom...



This is how Steve introduced this release on his blog on Jan. 22, 2014 (in a now-deleted blog entry titled "music music music"):

meanwhile we have decided to release
miscellanaea whispers in the static
in the course of my day to day life i create many pieces of music
since 2011 when i started on logic
anyway i have got all these bits and pieces
i have 2 commissioned songs for example that i did on my own
i have a version of poison (alice cooper) done with a string quartet
this was done for a cabaret here in Sydney for a game of Thrones
and I have some organic guitar jams with my friend Mark
and I have various ambient and instrumental pieces i have been doing
things for this project or that project
things for soundtracks
things that never came to fruition but deserve to be heard
some things with Frank Kearns sketching out songs
little short grabs
its all here
my musical notebook
the miscellaneous odds and ends from 3 years of work
for aficianados and completists
i gotta get all this music out somehow
if you want it....

Steve again wrote about this album on his blog on Feb. 16, 2014.
