Wannabe Greed Weir...

Brutal, painful...

We Are Being Warned


"Temperature anomalies in May continued a much longer trend. GISS compared the January–May mean surface temperature anomalies for 2010 to those of 2005 and 1998 (the two warmest years on record). January–May anomalies show 2010 to be the warmest out of 131 years (2005 is the fourth warmest and 1998 is the fifth warmest). Moreover, Arctic temperature anomalies are especially pronounced, and have been since the turn of the twenty-first century."

Rustling in the Underbrush...

Just in from our film night at the Oberdeck. George Kuchar's A Reason to Live grabbed the attendees' minds, then Steve Pink's Hot Tub Time Machine provided the necessary aesthetic comeuppance.

For those in/between/above/beyond the various loops: five new Karl Schmidt Verlag releases are soon due, including two books - Unpunished (previously touted here) and Peed Inks, a photo-essay with soundtrack. Re the three CDs: 1) No Sugar, aka the duo of Liz Allbee & George Cremaschi; 2) Rafael Toral; 3) Academia Riding Rust, with a disquisition on last month's Eurovision Song Contest. Details for glomming to follow...

Reconquer Disappears (for Now)...

So, now it's definite - the TS/Kevin Drumm alb is at the plant in CZ. Should be available for pre-orders in July. If you've been lost in the miasma of the now, get ready to have your asses kicked deep into tomorrow. No fucking lie...

Autsch!

Yesterday, early afternoon: the CP and I had just left a deli with our takeaway lunches and were pedaling through the park near Glocksee (on our way to watch Germany vs. Serbia at the Oberdeck) when a decidedly overweight and heedless tween on a well-buttressed mountain bike zoomed head-on into Frau Franke. Fuck.



The aftermath.

Claudia landed on her right knee, which began to swell immediately. She's quite tough, but she may be off the indoor slalom run for the next few weeks...



Our lunch exploded from its handlebar berth and painted ten meters of bike path with carrots, zucchini and penne. At least the ravens and ants were able to eat well...

Improvised Request:

Nothing really needs to be said about Derek Bailey, but to reiterate...

He got his start at the Brill Building combine, scoring a hit as a composer with the Orioles' "Gas-Filled Recoil" in late '62. He helmed Q65's unlikely gospel foray One Needs Grains and scored a belated European smash two years later with its "An Intermediate Goal," pulled initially as background music for a Belgian "bottomless" jeans advert. Bailey's stormy, May-December relationship with '40s Swedish ingénue Signe Hasso was widely reported at the time. His early 1970s work with Silverhead still strikes agreeably dissonant chords, but it was his dedication to and perseverance on behalf of Heart (most importantly, his shepherding of their contract from Mushroom to CBS/Portrait) that provided him with financial security and long-elusive professional accolades. (Heart's "Magic Man" famously details Bailey's tumultuous love affair with Ann Wilson.) He capped his career with induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1999. Recent collaborations with Gavin Rosdale and Art Brut have proven successful. He resided in St. David's, Wales, with his wife Sasha Vinni, the former Penthouse Pet and current Welsh Labour MP. Bailey expired in 2009 after a prolonged bout with a Slint gatefold.

Derek Bailey - Concert in Milwaukee

Recorded at Woodland Pattern, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on March 31, 1983.

(1983 cassette, no label or matrix information, unknown edition, housed in a clear plastic case with no cover.)

Availability: uncertain, but I'm guessing it's been out of print for 27 years.

Nerd Alert: John Underkoffler on the Future of Computation...

I Couldn't Say No...

Re Grief: there'll be two separate bonus download mixes, available only for those who receive a code from MonotypeRec when they purchase the box. We have 100 minutes of material that we couldn't fit on the discs for various reasons - pacing, mood, length, etc. These submissions have been contiguously mixed - each track will flow into the next.

It's good to be done with this part of the process. It took several forevers longer than I'd anticipated!

Culling Grief...

It only took seven hours of pruning and obsessively fastidious rearranging, but I've at last arrived at a final running order for The Grief That Shrieked to Multiply. We have three discs stuffed full of crazed remixes, and another hour-plus of equally deranged material that we had to reserve for private download (and a possible bonus seven-inch). More on this later!

Re Downloads...

Hello,

It's always good manners to thank someone for supplying a link (or revitalizing a dead one), and even better to seed a comment trail. Many of you have already nabbed the Faust. Eros. Tod bootleg, but none of you have bothered to leave your thoughts. Please do so - the TLASILA community is interested in what you have to say.

Frankreich gegen Uruguay...

The weather turned stormy at the onset of the second half, but the Alster was plentiful, and so the fitful match between Uruguay and France passed, soon to be forgotten.



(Our first half vantage. Later, we snagged the Strandkorb to the right. Good thing, as temps dipped soon after northern winds began to howl...)

Tomorrow night at Königswortherstr., a much different story: England v. USA!

No Sugar @ Oberdeck...

Hi Again,

Rough week in the language grinder. Lots of back-dated posts to sneak into the mix, photos and music to share, etc. Glue yr orbs here over the weekend if you're not too distracted by first round action from SA!

Just returned from seeing No Sugar (Liz Allbee and George Cremaschi) at Oberdeck here in Hannover. Excellent performance...



I'd actually never met either Liz or George before, so we spent quite a while in conversation, spinning one thread after another. Very cool people. Look for a release of their Oberdeck set soon on KSV.

Off to sleep. More tomorrow...

Best,

Another Glass to Fill, Then Empty, Then Misplace, Then Find and Fill Again...

Droogz,

I'll be posting on occasion at Generation Muck, a new low/high culture blog helmed by Priya and Robert of Kreamy 'Lectric Santa fame. Fresh out the word-jumble gate, but in time it should fill out its acid jammies in unexpected ways...

Re KSV: Typo Fail!

Friends, Colleagues, Accelerated Particles,

An evil interloper must have forced me into a shroud of haplessness, as I would never have consciously committed such a grievous error:



(Click above for a lager version of the image.)

Oops! As you can plainly grok, I managed to label the Disc Four sleeve of Die Frau betreffend as Disc Three. As admirable conceits go, two Disc Threes ranks well above Michael Bay's recent casting of Hayden Panettiere as Sir Issac Newton-Prime, but humility is a far more powerful force than gravity...

Die Frau betreffend will be sent as soon as I can get the corrected sleeves to my printer. It will be shipped separately. OK? As for the other orders, everything should be away by the weekend, Monday at the latest.

Yours,

Tom

The Folkwang Beckons...

The CP and I earlier booked a Saturday morning train for North Rhine-Westphalia to visit Essen's Museum Folkwang. The storied institution ("Das schönste Museum der Welt") has an extensive collection of Entartete Kunst (we'll be making a beeline for the Peter Schlemihl gallery), mounts a new exhibition of video works (Das im Entschwinden Erfasste) from the 5th, and houses the 340,000-plus pieces comprising the Deutsche Plakat Museum. Plus they have a kick-ass assortment of Antiseen cassettes on display...

Below, find a vid from NOS Nieuws. Everything is explained.



Sleep Well,

And They're Gone...

Hi Again,

Just back from seeing Rafael Toral perform at Königsworther Str...

Many thanks to the fearless 628 who downloaded the various iterations of April's Necessary Adjustments series. They've now been removed from the server - if you need a mix, ask around.

More Later,

TS

Going Once, Going Twice...

Hello Again,

Just taught my final class of the day - heading for home in a few. If there's an album from the Necessary Adjustments collection you've yet to download, do so in the next few hours. By midnight, they'll have been removed from my server...

Hope everyone is well.
