Re-sequenced Waltz Impatient!

Karl Schmidt Verlag. No press. (It's pointless.) No promo. (It only impedes the process.) No pandering. (We'll leave that to desperate others.) No explanation. (There's more than enough condescension already.) Our albums and books are created in very limited runs and are priced accordingly. Thus, there's no physical inventory, no money lost. Every cent goes into the next round of releases. We generate bad fucking vibes which are transmogrified into beautiful artifacts. These perfervid ideations hit the post in the morning...

The Evolved 171 Maintained Three Turks in Mannheim...

Hello Friennds,

Cheers and sincerely spat kudos re orders from the recent KSV flotilla. Three of the new albums are nearly gone: only three copies remain of Tom Smith's Yet Flying 2 collage of his 2002 submissions for the debut OHNE album, and four each of the Schrein and Michael Barthel live recordings from always-excellent Hannover gallery space Bei Koc. Stocks will soon be exhausted, so do as thou wilt! Supplies of the other albums have diminished, but alarms won't need to be immediately tripped.

All the Best,

Transcendental Map versus Wandering Domain: The Return of To Live and Shave in L.A.!

To Live and Shave in L.A. reconvenes on January 2nd with a concert at Eyedrum in Atlanta. This will be our only American date for the foreseeable future, so queue the fuck up! Our European tour begins in June... I love this ensemble, I love the otherness of the music, I love the intense conflicting emotions it engenders, and I love arguing with Rat about complete and utter nonsense. Join us!

T/SMS: TST 42 (aka Like Lazarus)

I recorded a second full-length T/SMS set a few months ago at Willi Dammeier's Institut für Wohlklangforschung here in Hannover. As soon as I have the artwork properly sorted, the album (which will be issued by KSV-affiliated imprint Elfelejt) should be on its way to the factory. Apart from Claudia Franke and John Wiese, no one has heard any of the new material. Here's the second track from the album, "TST 42." (Or, if you prefer, "Like Lazarus.") I put a helluva lot of work into these pieces, and I trust you'll erupt accordingly...

Best wishes,

Not Bono
