KSV 080 Little Claw - Sturmglocke 30. März

Portland's moonlit poplars dip, like lilys at the brink, into the seedless pellucid dark of Hannover. Superb through to the undoing, through the kneaded cakes and scorching tears...

Dusty stomping of proper paths, a tipped taste called Human Human from the yummy you-be band. The moon bit in shrouds of the fury of hills. Dusty, never human - the hottest derelicts in Appalachia!

01 Sturmglocke, 30. März (53:07)

Composed and performed by Little Claw.

Recorded live by Karl Schmidt at Sturmglocke, Hannover, March 30, 2010. Edited and mastered by TS at KSV HQ, Hannover, April 2010.

Edition of 15.

KSV 081 Wohlklang: 8. April (Bruital Orgasme)

Another very good evening at Wohlklang is documented herein.

Refuse layers, refuse, understand. Harrowing often more than synthesizers, huge with music principles, flowing to often repulsive synthesizers. To celebrate, they often celebrate layers. More guitar, with persistent microphones. An arsenal in spectacular tension. In layers.

Composed and performed by Bruital Orgasme.

Nathalie and Philippe Cavaleri - synthesizer, turntable, electronics, devices, voice.

KSV 082 17. April: Auf Wiedersehen Silke! (Jacques Palminger & The Kings of Dubrock / DJ Booty Carell)

Tears, tears, tears, and booze! The final Silke Arp Bricht event on Hannoverian soil, and a blowout of epic proportions it was and forever more shall be! Three hundred crazed insiders and professional mourners packed into the Sturmglocke ballroom to bid a weepy, celebratory, defiant farewell to SAB and 21 years of atavistic horrors determinedly wrought. Great valedictory sets from the inimitable Jacques P & the KoD and DJ Booty C, who dazzled with his bottom-heavy trove of mega-obscure Syrian psych. If you gotta go, go down frothing...

DJ Booty Carell wore the shroud and summoned the spirits. Extracts from his set are interpolated within.

Recorded live at Sturmglocke on April 17, 2010 by Karl. Edited for release and mastered by TS at KSV HQ, Hannover, April 2010.

Edition of 15.

Two-disc set: €14 EU / €17 elsewhere.

KSV 083 Pit Noack - Villa Vaudeville, 22. April

A grim, too-cold spring afternoon yielded to warmth and invention inside the Villa Vaudeville, courtesy of Herr Noack. He got off to a slightly wobbly start, but inexorably found (and devoured) his oxide-dusted legs...

The beautiful won't veil, or tie tobacco-pipe sails, although the tobacco-pipe said "sky a-byway, the voyage is beautiful, the sky far from upset, with the voyage to beautiful lands a voyage through the dark, to those few who must mast the sky." And, tobacco-pipe, what a long and extremely sky-veiled tied-Ted, so small you won't upset the live heads and pea-green hands...

01 Ohne Titel (38:04)
02 Version (TS mix) (30:07)

Pit Noack - prepared cassettes, tape machines, speaker array

Composed and performed by Pit Noack.

Recorded, edited, and mastered for release by TS for KSV.

KSV 054 Tom Smith - Unpunished

Still waiting for the forward, but as soon as Mr. D gets his vintage analog fax machine up and running I'll have more details on final book length and pricing. Apologies for the delay, but AD must have the time he requires. Everyone cool with that?

Below, the book's fifteen illustrations, stitched into one handy panel for your leisurely perusal. These will be interspersed throughout...
