Three New Releases from Karl Schmidt Verlag!

Guten Abend!

As promised, three new releases from your enterprising monastics at KSV are presented below for your edification, clumsy weights, and inharmonious verses. This is the clean-up sortie from the recently-launched, coarse and degenerate flotilla. Prepare to prepare, as your eyes will do the things we usually predict they'll do...

Of course, we'll have more throughout June, including, one hopes, Unpublished! Still waiting on Aaron deliver his forward. He's a new dad, just as busy as I am, mustn't complain, etc.

KSV 084 7. Mainzer Kunstzwerg Festival: Police Indian Aydin

A seedless document of a determinedly luminous 48-hour belch. Silke Arp Bricht uprooted itself at the behest of the Walpodenakademie of Mainz, and between 14-15 May, the dusty feathers of stuffed ospreys flew. Police Indian Aydin commemorates both a death throe and the first greedy gulp from the chalice of infinite, unmerciful possibility.

KSV 085 Three Resurrected Drunkards - The Transmigration of the Martyr Is the Murder of the Mourner

KSV 086 Königsworther Str. 20, 22. Mai (Frank Apunkt Schneider)

Frank Apunkt Schneider, the author of the definitive Neue Deutsche Welle tome Als die Welt noch unterging: von Punk zu NDW, dropped by Königsworther Str. 20 (the site of the former Silke Arp Bricht) to discuss the finer points, the justly obscure, and the impossibly neglected. The hours flew past in spastic, fluttering fits...

Bone up on your German, non-Euro kiddies, as this was a strictly scintillating info-feast!

(KSV's copy. No HQ should be without one.)

(Frank was kind enough to sign ours...)
