Kim about ‘Get out’

Fulfills my criterium for any album, that at least one song must have a certain ‘bite’. I’ve always liked songs where I got the chance to show another side of me. To sit in the scene can sometimes be just wonderful! I love this song. (1)

I was writing with [Pete Kirtley], he played me the track and I remember phoning up Rick and saying ‘I think we’ve got a smash hit, a great one to play live and it will be a great surprise, I think, for a lof of KW fans. People who have liked some of my stuff, they will love this one. (2)

I got a feeling and I don’t like it
What you do, what you do, what you do to me
I’ve been brainwashed, I gotta fight it
Now i see, what you do, what you do to me

I’m taking control tonight
I know what I want tonight

Get out of my face and out of my skin
Don’t wanna go back, I’m not gonna let you in
Get out of my head … out of my head
Get out of my bed and run for your life
I’m shutting you down
You’re not gonna twist my mind
Get out of my head, get out of my head

I’m disconnecting, erasing everything
What you did, what you did, what you did to me
This time I don’t care, so shut your mouth yeah
Nothing left you could do, you could do to me

I’m taking control tonight …

Hey – Get out of my face …

This is my life
And I’m taking it back for the last time
Now it’s too late and I’m turning my back
Got my head straight

Get out of my face …

This is my life …

When Kim started studying horticulture at Capel Manor, she didn’t think it would lead to a professional career, but it did. And during this second career, she designed dozens of gardens. She appeared in the TV programmes Better Gardens and Garden Invaders, designing gardens for many lucky families, and also participated in several flower shows throughout the United Kingdom.

Some of the gardens attracted media attention. You can find more information in this Encyclopedia about the following gardens:

Gardening with Children

Kim Wilde’s first book was written in 2004 and released on 4 April 2005 by Collins publishers. The book was first announced in April 2004 on, when the contract with Collins still had to be signed.
All summer long, Kim was writing it. The manuscript was finally sent to the publisher in August, after which corrections, proofing etc. had to take place. Soon after that, the first version of the cover of the book saw the light of day. It contained a very different photograph and a subtitle: ‘Bursting with ideas for getting – and keeping – kids interested in the outdoors’. This subtitle was eventually dropped, as was the photograph.
The new design came in December, with a photograph of Kim together with Harry and Rose, taken by Ian Derry during a session which took place earlier that year for an article in Junior Magazine. The final design came when it was decided to change the title to ‘Gardening with children’ in January 2005.
The book was due to be released on 4 April 2005, but promotion for the book started a couple of weeks beforehand. On 22 March 2005, Kim did her first ever book signing session at Ottakar’s book shop in Milton Keynes. It was the first opportunity for fans to get a copy of the book.

‘Gardening with children’ contains 128 pages. The first part of the book, featuring a listing of contents and a few introductions, takes up 24 pages. Pages 25 through 123 are divided by the four seasons: Spring (page 25-59), Summer (page 60-111), Autumn (page 112-119) and Winter (120-123). Finally, a plant directory and acknowledgements take up the final five pages.
The book contains 447 photographs, with one appearing on the front cover, one on the inside of the jacket and twenty on the back cover. Kim appears in 58 of these photographs, but husband Hal only appears on seven photographs, all of them on pages 78 and 79.
Kim is assisted by six children in the book: Bryony (8), Darcey (11), Harry (6), Holly (8), Luke (6) and Rose (4). The book describes 31 different projects, stating an age range for each of them. One is meant for children aged 2 onwards, one for 3 onwards, thirteen for 4 onwards, one for 5 onwards, eleven for 6 onwards and four for 8 onwards.
The plant directory on pages 124-127 contains 158 names, divided into nine categories.

Garden Invaders

Garden Invaders is an exciting horticultural game show where a family must answer quiz questions correctly to earn each step of a garden makeover – against the clock. The more questions they get right, the more plants they earn for their new garden makeover.
Meanwhile, the Invaders team, made up of some of your favourite TV gardeners, are in a race against time with only 12 hours to complete the makeover. The pressure is on the family to try to win as many items as possible for their garden. Of course, the more items they win, the more dramatic the transformation!

The series were broadcast for the first time on BBC Television (UK) in 2001. During the first two seasons, Kim was one of the resident garden designers alongside Nicky Mager. During the first season she did a lot of the hard work herself, but the show changed slightly in the second season, which made the work easier for the garden designers as the Garden Invaders working team did most of the hard work then.
After two seasons, Kim quit Garden Invaders.

Kim about ‘Garden Invaders’

I loved the opportunity to transform people’s gardens. The worse the gardens looked, the more potential I thought they had. People used their gardens as a glorified skip – there were piles of rubble to get rid of.
It was very physically challenging. I’ve got a bad back now. That might be down to having had two kids, but pushing barrowloads of rubble probably doesn’t help! (1)

The gardens were in a particularly bad state, so we had to work incredibly hard. I was designing, but I had to pitch in with the hard labour, which was back-breaking. I wish I’d taken it a bit easier because I’d only given birth to my daughter, Rose, five months earlier and my body hadn’t recovered. (2)

Always tryin’ to put me down
Did ya think that I would drown
(Whatever makes your world go round)
It’s just sticks and stones but you’ll never stop me

Doesn’t matter how much you try
You can’t touch what I got inside
(I’ll rise above it every time)
It’s just sticks and stones but you’ll never stop me

You might annoy me, but ya can’t destroy me
In fact if anything it makes me stronger
Now wotcha gonna say ‘cos…

Game over, I showed ya
You choose

And it’s obvious to me
You’re a victim of your own jealousy yeah
That’s too bad, you’re so sad
‘cos you lose, game over

Mirror mirror on the wall
I was the fairest of them all
(But now you wanna see me fall)
I’m still standin’ you’ll never stop me
Tell me where do you get off
Puttin’ ’bout your nasty stuff
(You don’t know when enough’s enough)
I’m still standin’ you’ll never stop me

You berate me, try to break me
In spite of everything it makes me stronger
Now wotcha gonna say ‘cos…

You lose
Game over, I showed ya
You choose
where to go from here
And it’s obvious to me
You’re a victim of your own jealousy yeah
That’s too bad, you’re so sad
‘cos you lose, game over

I’m not listening to what you say
Moving on, going all the way

You lose
Game over, I showed ya
You choose

And it’s obvious to me
You’re a victim of your own jealousy yeah
That’s too bad, you’re so sad
‘cos you lose, game over

Always tryin’ to put me down
Did ya think that I would drown?
I’m still standing you’ll never stop me
I’m still standing you’ll never stop me

Game Over (band)

For the song, see Game over

Game Over were a 5 piece band from Melbourne (Australia), founded in 1996 by Adam Linden (vocals), Elton (guitar), Dave Thorn (drums), Dave O’Dwyer (guitar) and Paul Stanway (bass). They started out touring a lot, with overseas bands like Guttermouth, MXPX, No Fun At All, Avail, Lagwagon and Down By Law. They released their first EP ‘One down’ in 1997, which was followed by the EP ‘Shotgun’ in July 1998. On this EP they recorded Kids in Australia, a slightly changed cover of Kim Wilde’s Kids in America.

Brad Young replaced Linden when he left the band in 1999. During February 2000 the boys supported Millencolin across the East Coast but then Elton had a accident and badly damaged his leg. They did the East Coast support for Pennywise/Frenzal Rhomb during November. Guitarist Elton left the band in early 2001 and was replaced by Ben Webster, but they broke up soon after that, leaving a lot of new recordings unreleased.

In May 2003 they reunited in the original lineup for a show in Adelaide, supporting 99 Reasons Why’s final show and also a final show of their own at the Arthouse where it all started for them.
