Jack Frost – Live in Boston 1991

(Grant McLennan & Steve Kilbey)

1991/ MP3 @ 224 kbps / 110 mb / RS

There were two great studio collaborations between two of the greats of Aussie music, the late great Grant McLennan ex Go Between, and Steven Kilbey of the Church, under the nomenclature ‘Jack Frost’.

And rather excellent they were too. They were the eponymous ‘Jack Frost’ in 1991 and the great ‘Snow Job’ from 1995.


You can find both albums here

The divergent songwriting styles and performances of the two top-class artists meshed magically together in their collaborations. The lyrics were of a high calibre also. Both albums are under-rated classics.

We have a very rare find here! A fascinating document of the short 1991 tour by the great Messrs. McLennan & Kilbey. The tour was a series of intimate acoustic shows in smaller clubs across a few major US cities to support the release of their eponymous release ‘Jack Frost’ in 1991.

The sound quality is good and there’s some good banter between the guys and audience here and top performances.

We get most of the Jack Frost album plus, as a special treat for Go Betweeners, we get some of Grant’s greatest GB classics, The Wrong Road, Right Here, Was There Anything I Could Do? and Bye Bye Pride.

Of course some Steve Kilbey too, including a great and hilarious solo rendition of the classic Under the Milky Way Tonight !

Steve Kilbey refers to this brief 1991 tour in his blog, see below;

Grant n I wrote and played the whole thing together
a real 50 50 deal if ever there was one
I brought my recording techniques and song strategies
he brought his melodies and lightness
the record is a masterpiece
it did pretty good
arista even released it
and we did a short tour of the states
just acc guitars n little places
grant taught me so much about everything
he was a great guy to be on tour with
I think the audiences liked it
at the same time grant was working on watershed which I heartily recommend

-Steve Kilbey



Every Hour God Sends

You seem a little nervous, just relax
Just give them all your
innocence, you’ve got stacks
Every hour god sends some wings
Every hour god sends some stones
Now cool out and don’t push
Sooner or later they’ll give you an ambush
An ambush unexpected, from the blue

  1. Providence
  2. Didn’t Know Where I Was
  3. Civil War Lament

  5. The Wrong Road

Jack Frost – Snow Job (Grant McLennan & Steve Kilbey)

Cover

Jack Frost – Snow Job

(Grant McLennan & Steve Kilbey)

1995/ MP3 @ 192 kbps / 89 mb / RS


The record captures the roiling boiling turmoil
of those days. I can hardly bear to listen to it myself. Its agony is apparent. But it bleeds for you.

This is a great collaboration (the second of two) between two of the greats of Aussie music, the late great Grant McLennan ex Go Between, and Steven Kilbey of the Church.


Kilbey writes about this album thusly in his great blog;

years later we did the second jack f
this was recorded as a band with timmy p. playing drums
a totally different record
much had changed in the between years
my little problem was now a huge gorilla
pushing me around all over the place
i wassa innercity drug hermit
grant was never as bad as me
tho he was plagued with his own daemons too
the record captures the roiling boiling turmoil
of those days
i can hardly bear to listen to it myself
its agony is apparent
but it bleeds for you
and its a great falling apart record
a la sister/lovers…
tho it wasnt a pleasant experience.

-Steve Kilbey

The divergent songwriting styles and performances of the two top-class artists once again mesh magically together in this collaboration.

This album deals with darker subjects and emotions than “Jack Frost”.

Again the lyrics are of an especially high calibre.

Another under-rated classic.

Empire

Aren’t you tired, aren’t you sleepy (never going nowhere)
Can’t you see what’s wrong with you (comes with someone)
I am summer, gonna crush us (never going nowhere)
Change our skin, leave us ashes

I just wanna know
How long you’re going to keep me
Locked out in your empire

Dancing pretty spins my mind (never going nowhere)
Racing into steals my time (comes with someone)
In the action, breaking down (never going nowhere)
Moving lightly and never ending

Here’s a heartfelt and very nice piece from Steve Kilbey’s blog on the sad demise of Grant, which also speaks about the 2 albums they made together; Kilbey Blog

Running From The Body

You’ve been here before
I’ve seen that face before I opened the door to you
You’ve got the power
That’s why I like you
Yes it’s true

Inside you hear the light dance for hours on the ceiling
No shellac above your deathbed.
There’s a bandage on the curtain across the window
It moves but does not move

Deep, deep in a room
Patiently shining in the darkness surrounding
The small details dissolving
The moment it comes penetration is due

You’ve got the power
That’s why I like you
Yes it’s true

Outside there’s a wind crawling up the hill
To the top of the trees
Moving through a melody of grief
It sounds like running from the body

It’s funny how someone you’ve never met manages to stay with you

Trapeze Boy

I hadn’t thought about Mrs. Morgan for years, until I read in the paper that she had died. When I was a boy, Mrs. Morgan played solo with my mother every Tuesday afternoon. There were two other women there, but I can’t remember their names anymore. Monkey, Magda, something like that.

Mrs. Morgan collected opals. Her husband Ted owned a circus, which kept him away and out of the picture most of the time. I’d come home from school and the women would be hard at the cards. I liked Mrs. Morgan, she always had a little chip of opal for me, and said that I should save it for a sweetheart. I came home one day and Mrs. Morgan was crying in our kitchen.


My mother told me to leave them alone. I learned later that a boy from the circus had fallen and died. He used to ride the trapeze. Mr. Morgan went out of business and they moved away. I’ve still got the opals.

It’s funny how someone you’ve never met manages to stay with you.


Civil War Lament

They packed us up in boxes, wooden boxes
And sent us home
Underneath the willow, near the river
By my headstone

And all you do is carry on

It’s snowing now it’s winter, river’s frozen
And still you come
I can almost see you, and touch you
My pretty one

When all you do is carry on


Thought that I was over you

In a shack one night in Brisbane
You said that I’d just missed my flight
Playing cards, raining hard
And holding on with all my might
Like a firework going off in my mind
I have to say it hurt me seeing you have a good time
I know you’re there, you’ve got new friends
From my point of view, well it depends
I’m sure there was a reason
