Hello,

A new duo collab between Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson and I was begun (and most likely completed) last evening. Already assembling the basic segments for a rough mix; the cover design (courtesy of friends King Klong in Marburg) is finished, and reproduced below for your perusal:

James Dean Had No Vocal Monitors Either...

(Amended November 20, 2010.)

Wow... David Bowie performing "Life on Mars" and "Ashes to Ashes" on The Tonight Show, September 5, 1980. Johnny Carson's first guests that evening were Bob Hope and Richard Pryor. (Note Bowie's acknowledgment of Pryor following "Mars.") Carson's professional reserve is, for this observer, wholly admirable.

Link supplied by TLASILA's very own Don Fleming, with thanks!

Oshima Documentaries vs. TDC/Palin Ratshit...

Hello Everyone,

An hour ago, the CP and I watched ARTE's Es war einmal ... program, which aired David Thompson's recent documentary on Nagisa Oshima's landmark 1976 film In the Realm of the Senses.

Now, they're showing the film, uncut, etc.

BREAKOUT!

Dear, Death-Defying Droogies,

There are ten new releases on Karl Schmidt Verlag. Ready for infection?

KSV 101 Astrolabe Gill - Gorilla Bleats



Features eighteen minutes of newly interpolated material from the original sessions, and a much, much better mix than the one fired off for the digital iteration...

KSV 107B Eric Arn, Wouter Jaspers & Stefan Kushima - Templates (Version)


Eric Arn's superb re-edit/remix lifts blasts this compendium through Oort Cloud salts and straight into the gaping heart of a wormier infinity.

(NB: if you ordered the first edition of this album, the Arn re-fix pictured above was included in your parcel as a free gift. No need to order twice!)


KSV 109 Gaunt Exes - Peel '79 Is Insufficient



Ire unleashed at the local (i.e., universal) level...

KSV 112 TS - Lo-Volt Lupus



Alphabets fend mouths through unfathomable depths...

KSV 113 Kino im Springel, 9. Okt: Colotomix (Konzert für RK)



RIP Rüdiger Klose...

KSV 116 Kristof Schreuf - Oberdeck, 16. Okt (2xCD)



Exceptional performance from the ex-Kolossale Jungend stalwart and Lennon boot ultra-freak...

KSV 117 RM74 & Herpes O Deluxe - 19. Okt, Sturmglocke (2xCD)



Reto Mäder (aka RM74) and fellow Bern trope-raiders Herpes Ö Deluxe in devastating form...

(The first ten orders get a free A3 poster!)

KSV 118 Pit Noack - Crystal Castle Abschlusskonzert



Sirens descend and occlude as Herr N dazzles Ausland...

KSV 119 Three Resurrected Drunkards - REM Konzert 78



During which an audience of connoisseurs (at Bremen's Weserburg Museum of Modern Art) receive precisely what was owed...

(The first ten orders receive a copy of the promo card issued by the museum to commemorate TRD's performance.)

KSV 121 Raum 20, Berlin, 30. Okt: When K-Pop Attacks!



Luminous madness as DJ Wouter Jaspers counteracts the Acid Mothers virus with 30,000 milligrams of 2NE1...

Subway Sect: Two Hours and Counting...

This is the first time I've been giddy about a gig in a long, long time. Vic Godard is the only original Sect member aboard, but fuck it. With their literate, foreboding, subversive, often majestic clutch of songs, coming as they did from the oddest of the odd-duck claque of '76 aesthetes, I'd be dead not to be excited. It's been intimated a bit too often but yeah, they're the very definition of punk. Against it, in all its deformations. Expect a smile visible from here to your hovel when "Chain Smoking," "Stool Pigeon," "We Oppose All Rock and Roll," "Nobody's Scared," and, gulp, "Ambition" are assayed...

Hi Again,

We're happy to toil, but fourteen hours was a record for Karl, Linda and I. Post-post-production is the mother of all slight-but-nonetheless-easily-manageable lower back pain...

Er, Deadline, Right...

So, we're giving everyone until Friday to order the albums that you weren't supposed to be able to order after Tuesday. Why? Mainly 'cuz we're so freaking busy with the next release sortie, and still depressed at the dismal electoral outcome in the States. (Not that we didn't expect it.)

Another two days, and then the heat shield collapses.
