Chief writer Paul Dempsey has explained of keeping notebooks full of lyrics - sentences, phrases and whatever else. So when the band (commonly referred to as SFK) has the music, the next move is to go searching through the notebooks for accompanying lyrics. The result is a band that not only has great music, but also possibly the best lyrics going around today.
"Echolalia" is the band's third official album, though there have been others not counted, such as "Q & A with Dean Martin". Like other bands, such as The Whitlams and Coldplay, their singles may not sell so much (in Australia, anyway), but their albums are instant best sellers. There were about three tracks released from "Echolalia". "Three Dimensions" (which contains the album's title word) is catchy, and at some stages one note is repeated on the keyboard, reminiscent of train gates, or indeed plain traffic. "Say Something" takes this theme, which perfectly fits in with the line "the faces have become like traffic". The result is extremely catchy frenzied activity in less than three minutes. And "Monsters" is about the things that trap us, and is good quality soft alternative music.
"Stunt Show" is a perfect opening track, one of the best on the album. It starts off with an acoustic guitar, and builds from there. The lyrics, like most songs on this album, are just brilliant.Read more ›
With the CD you also get access to a special website as well as the video to the first single "Monsters".
Living in their home country I have had the privilege to see them live a number of times and THEY ROCK LIVE!!!! If they head your way - make a bee-line to the ticket outlet.
Enjoy listening to this work of musical art.

Something for Kate is a slightly interesting Australian act. Musicaly they fall comfortably into the very crowded Aussie indie-rock fold. Read morePublished on April 17, 2003 by shadowking

Something For Kate is a terrific band from Australia. Led by singer/songwriter Paul Dempsey, this group has renewed my belief that great music is still being created.Published on October 9, 2002
I think Australia deliberately sends us Men at Work and Paul Hogan to throw us off track from the real talent. Something for Kate is one of those hidden talents. Read morePublished on October 9, 2002 by John S Kelley
