Slow? Feh! This One Took Just Four Years!

Wow... What a grind! After an insane gestation period marked by the usual hellish fits and starts, Horóscopo: Sanatorio de Molière, the comprehensive, in-house remix/deconstruction of at least a decade's worth of To Live and Shave in L.A. recordings, was finally wrapped today. (Less than twenty minutes ago, to be precise.) Horóscopo began as a fevered reverie atop Dave Phillips' DJ decks (in Aarau, Switzerland, during World Cup 2002!), reached back to field recordings made on the road in the mid-90s, and drew from almost all the officially issued TLASILA releases from 1994 onwards. I've been tweak-checking since Saturday, but I had to let go of it today. It's as done as it's ever going to be, and I'm anxious to turn it over to Graham at Blossoming Noise. (There are other albums in production, other projects in queue! Gotta keep moving...)

More on this and everything else since the last post after I return from the gym. Sick of being cooped up!

Great stuff. Really curious as to what this one will sound like... Please keep us posted as to what else is coming up too.

Thanks, mikey - new downloads are forthcoming. The first? Most likely, 1994's "Helen Butte" vs. Masonna Pussy Badsmell, in its entirety, remastered just for TLASILA fans, etc. Okay with you?

Best,

Tom

Hello Bruno! Good to see you blogging again. With luck Horoscopo will be back from the plant in time for the Canadian jaunt. Unfortunately, Noon probably won't be ready until late September. Don't worry, though - your copy is already reserved! Thanks so much again for beta testing those rough mixes for us... Much obliged!

Best,

TS

The pleasure was all mine!
Out of nowhere curiosity now: what's up with the Smack Shire?
mikey (hip hop anonymous?) said…
very okay with me, i'll probably still download it even if it's included in the package... thanks!

Hey BB,

Gerard's working on the next four releases: two by Nandor Nevai (who prefers to spell his first name "Nondor" for his twit-ass American pals, claiming non-Hungarian speakers lack the wherewithal to pronounce "Nandor" correctly); one by Dave Phillips (a compilation of out-of-print rarities entitled "Curses"); and a fugged-up remix of the first Skrewdriver album by yours truly. (Yes, you read that right.)

So, that's the current TSSR scoop.

Best,

TS

Thanks for the news. It had been so long since I'd heard of anything, I was worried the label had gone belly-up...
ommyth said…
Nah, BB, capitalization isn't one of our problems. Money we've got, but sloth... My friend, that's a far more formidable obstacle!

Best,

TS
