On King Street, I'm a King

Check out this awesome ode to Newtown from John Kennedy's Love Gone Wrong back from 1985. The come-back starts right here, I reckon...

Awesome indeed! That song is in my head for good, for ages I've always added the words "I'm a king" if anyone said "on King Street".

So, thanks for the visuals to go with it.

Fine as that may be, Nosey, I don't really think it's any match for Outline's 'Cicada (That Ate Five Dock)'

Now that's how you write about a suburb.

JFK is still playing and recording - you might catch him at The Rose in Erko

Does anyone know if he made a video for his other inner-west classic "Miracle In Marrickville" ?

High, girl!
While I realize my penname is quite morbid, yet,
you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
which has taken this mortal sinner yeeeeers to compile:
I lay it ALL out for you, dear - neet-o, packaged, concise.

Nevertheless, wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
An XtraXcitinXpose with no
zooillogical-expiration-date?
An IQ much higher than K2?
An extraordinarily, anti-establishment victory??
Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
(with a most excellent detector of bull§ht):

“Faith, hope, and love,
the greatest of these is love -
jump into faith...
and you'll see with love”
Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
God believes in you.

Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
from a passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
nonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsX…
of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big House.
