Limbo

To play along with the CD, you must CAPO at the fifth fret.
All chords are relative to the capo, although transposition
isn't too difficult on this one.

Limbo Capo Fret 5

Verse 1 (cool upstrokes on the Em)
Em                  Em
Ate up the prophets, corrupted the saints
Em                  Em
Exhausted resources, made us ashamed

Chorus
Em             C
Hollywood won't touch you with a pole
D5                      Am
Jesus doesn't love you, Lucipher does not
Am          (Em)
want your soul
Em             C
Made a mistake, no one will forgive you
D5                               Am
The servants you love to dismiss all will outlive you

Verse 2
Em                         Em
Set us against each other, thought it was clever
Em             Em
What a fiasco, well I never

Chorus

Verse 3
Em                Em
Such a good baby, such an old man
Em                         Em
Thanks for the memories, now why don't you scram

Chorus

I enjoy this song as it is recorded, but there is alot more
electronic sounds than guitar. Hearing Kilbey play it live
on guitar only convinced me that it was originally composed
on/for the guitar. The chords are all played first position.
On the D5, the bass and keyboards imply a minor tone, but I
believe the guitar simply plays the D5:

---------0--
---------3--
---------2--
---------0--
---------0--
---------x--

Also, on the E-minor in the chorus, the other instruments imply
a seventh tone, but the guitar plays E-minor only. I hope someone
can find interest in playing this song, it is classic Kilbey

The Egyptian

Transcribed by Brian Smith

Chords used: 

G5        : 320033
C9+5      : 032033 - weird name, simple concept. Just move two fingers down from the G5 chord.
Eb Thingy : X65066

The C9 chord moved up by three frets - no barre.  Let the G string ring clearly and 
BLOCK THAT LOW E!! Steve didn't do so at a concert and stopped the song half way 
through because something sounded *really* ... ummm.... "discordant".  The low E
ringing through the chorus was the cause.

Db Thing: X43044

Same as the previous chord but down two frets.  The G is still ringing clearly and that 
nasty low E should be blocked.

OK, after that lot the song is fairly simple.

Verse:

 G C9 (repeat)

Chorus:

 Eb Thingy   Db Thingy C9

The only tweak I can suggest is when you switch from G to C9 in the chorus try 
and sometimes hit the 2nd fret on the G string. This adds an "A" to the chord and lets
you hint at what the bassline is doing in the recording.

VERSE

F          C               A7       Bb
In a room in Hong Kong, out of a Cantonese song
F           C               F                C
I met Miss Linda Wong, she was looking for me
F               C
She led me to her bedroom

Wonderful things she said

Too much for my head, like I'm all at sea

CHORUS

Bb                 F
Her bones shone through her skin
Bb                  F
Her eyes were green and tin [PINNED?]
Amin       Dmin
She floated in the wind,
Bb            C
the wind from the sea
Bb              F
Her arms were thin and scarred,
Bb              F
Her face was young and hard
Amin        Dmin        Bb       C
But her mind was a garden, open for me

If I stay here too much longer

I never would belong, her
F               C
world was not mine
F                C
Together we'd float and drift
A7               Bb
on what we smoked and sniffed
F                C       C7
press a button on the lift, for Cloud 9

CHORUS

Bb                 F

Bb                 F
her eyes were green and tin
Amin      Dmin
she floated in the wind
Bb          C
the wind from the sea
Bb          F
her pale chinese cheeks
Bb          F
ain't seen the sun for weeks,
Amin        Dmin
that ain't the life she seeks
B        C
looking for me

English Kiss

(Kilbey)

Transcription by Noel

Here is English Kiss from Narcosis +.  It is basically a two chord song,
though there seems to be a passing G tone between the Fmaj7 and Amin.  The
guitar tracks on the album feature quite a bit of wah pedal rocking back and
forth (very tasty).  The keyboard fill in the intro can be played on the
guitar using the Harmonic Minor scale.  Something like this:

e………………………………………………………….
B………………………………………………………….
G…………………………………………………….5…..
D………………………………………5………7……….
A……………………5……7…..8……………………….
E…5……7…..8…………………………………………..

The chords are A minor

Amin
Do you remember the story
Fmaj7
Of the bloody chamber
Amin
About the mad tiger
Fmaj7
He licks the skin off the women.
Amin
I tell you Samantha
////              Fmaj7
I could wear those stripes for you.
Amin
Have you prayed, have you chanted
Fmaj7
With the symbols and incense
Amin
To both Krishna and Buddha
Fmaj7
And the Goddess of Fortune
Amin
For an Indian lover
///
To wake Kundalini
               Fmaj7
Your beautiful Yonni
///
But also Iscariot
Amin
Who comes to betray us
              Fmaj7
With just one English Kiss.
Amin
Deep in the autumn
Fmaj7
I lie in my bedroom
Amin
Just one more long shadow
Fmaj7
Fall into the corners
Amin
I reach for a woman
Fmaj7
Who harbors in darkness
Amin
She lands on a mountain
///
Sways for a moment
Fmaj7
Crashes in pieces all over my eyes.
Amin
All over my eyes
Chord progression remains the same throughout
And when you get tired
Of fake little evenings
Slip through your fingers
And don’t keep their promise
Such a sad vision
It breaks up my daydream
Such a sad vision, breaks up my daydream

Look up that sleeve, where is the rabbit
Already secreted along with the dove
Where is the passion, already depleted
Just like the love.

Can you imagine what I can manage
With your permission, with your consent.
I know what you're thinking
Hear what you're saying, How could I ever?
I know what you like.
I think I know what you like.
I'm sure I know what you like.
You should give it attention
You should give it attention
You should give it some thought
You should give me a night
You should give me a night
I know what you like
