My Head... My Ears! My Girlfriend's Beer-Soaked Bag...

Greetings, blurred, double-exposed friends! We're really, really, really hurting after last night's (er, this morning's) party at Silke. Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck. I'll never drink again...

Some representative photos from the marathon "Strictly Seven-Inch" blowout:

Can't summon either the energy or willpower to caption these, but I'm sure you can create sufficiently appropriate (or acidic) subtexts of your own.

MJ Jetpack Perfection...

TLASILA member and insanely awesome solo artist Sickboy Milkplus posted this video to his Facebook profile a few minutes ago, and I thought it best to share it with you immediately. Jurgen's comment ("check this out it's best ever MJ live footage i have ever seen!!") is 100% accurate.



The implicit alien aspect of this performance is mirrored somewhat in the subtext of this Guardian profile of Jackson, penned prior to his death by the ubiquitous (but not unbearable) Paul Morley...

As Rumored...

Just back from a walk to Deutsche Post - all recent Karl Schmidt Verlag orders are on their way to the hovels (and greedy mitts) of our favorite transcontinental gormandizers.

Many, many thanks, as ever!

Best,

New Releases from Karl Schmidt Verlag...

Hello Droogs,

As promised yesterday, four new albums, available NOW!

Here's the rundown:

KSV 026 Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson & Tom Smith - Todesröcheln

Occasional Hanoverian neighbor Sigmarsson (from the titanic Stilluppsteypa) and yours unholy hang at KSV HQ and go glottal stop to thoracic implant in a sulfurous vocal battle royal!



Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson - voice

KSV 028 Kenou Boyd Fromberg vs. Der Wolfsburger 32,002Hz Chor - The Silent Din (Abgeklärt Pts. 1-4)



Berlin-based composer Stefan Roigk's three-year-old son, Boyd, takes over KSV HQ for an afternoon of keyboard (and stuffed animal) debasement. Stellar doesn't cut it - this is post-galactic! Contrasted and abetted by the attenuated spokes and seat springs of the Wolfsburger 32,002Hz Chor, recorded during their May 2009 tour of Maschsee, Hannover.

01 Abgeklärt Parts 1-4 (60:37)

Composed and performed by Kenou Boyd Fromberg and Der Wolfsburger 32,002Hz Chor.

KSV 029
Silke Arp Bricht: 3. Juni (Rémi Groussin / Michel Henritzi & Junko Hiroshige)



A document of a fateful, fantastical evening. First, video artist Grossin thrummed his way into Silke lore, followed by a cartilaginous collab 'twixt Hijokaidan doyenne Hiroshige and guitarist Henritzi. Lives were either saved, spurned, or spared.

01 Rémi Groussin (12:03)
02 Michel Henritzi & Junko Hiroshige (27:01)
03 Critique (12:41)
04 Version (25:06)

Told Original Cure "Active Rest, Rowland's Binge"...

Hello Again,

Sitting in the kitchen, readying that second cup. Hope all of you are well, and similarly enjoying the slow trudge toward the shower, the bus queue, and those first, joyously disorienting minutes at your places of work or study. In Hannover, we've experienced an unseasonable and altogether cruel cold snap. Over the weekend it was rainy and grim, but even as I type the words, a shaft of sunlight sets the cabinetry ablaze. That's more like it.

Biz: last month's Karl Schmidt Verlag orders are set to hit the post today. I went back to the TS/Blue Sabbath masters and reedited the album, and this all-too-typical act of self-flagellation accounts for the shipping delay. Verisimilitude has its limits, y'know. Rather than present a straightforward document of our session, I preferred this time to introduce supporting narrative elements. For instance, last week at nearby Braunschweig University's electronic music lab I recorded the sounds of a piano I'd prepared with the tools available - my Sony digital camera, and a bag in which a chocolate croissant had previously been resting unmolested. Those alternating notes and thuds were later edited, and inserted into the mix. I added the odd vocal line (or fragment) to undergird certain passages as well... The result? An even more gnarled exegesis, one that awaits the gentle caress of Deutsche Post. Shipments should be on their way by late afternoon.

More later,

Tom
