TLASILA Blog: A forum for all things related (and of interest) to the experimental collective To Live and Shave in L.A. Founded by Tom Smith in May 1990, TLASILA is antithesis, energized at the juncture of aesthetic revulsion. Genre is obsolete.
R.I.P. Harald Bockisch...
Our friend Harald Bockisch, a member of Hannover's Silke Arp Bricht / Oberdeck collective, was intensely reflective, non-effusive to a fault. Although he made a virtue of restraint, I'd seen him dancing, dreamily (and restively) imbibing, and sitting either with stoic remove or placid delight through scores of concerts and salon performances. He died a few days ago of pneumonia.
Life and death are ever capricious.
We are all shocked and saddened by his sudden passing...

Thanks for your admirable reserve, and greater thanks still for your friendship.
