TLASILA's The Death: First Look at the Accompanying Booklet

Hello Again,

Hope you all don't mind that the booklet accompanying TLASILA's The Death (KSV 301) was expanded from sixteen to thirty-six pages! At no extra charge, etc. The narrative fairly screamed for it. Of course, you'll notice the absence of text. Here, young lovers, is where your fertile imaginations come into play. Steer meaning from the interstitial to the superficial! Or, give it an even greater heft than I and the others imagined it possessed. Fill in the blanks for yourselves, and drown in the excess...


Best Wishes,

TS

T/SMS: TST 02

First public track from my new T/SMS project, from the forthcoming TSTS EP. All electronic, little or no vocals (with "TST 02", no vox), a combination of looped samples and original sounds, unashamedly inspired by recent developments, flexible enough both for live improvisation or enhanced playback seizure. The "SMS" comes from the most common German mispronunciation of my last name. Download or listen or ignore at your peril, etc etc.

Cheers,

Ian Shirley: Record Collector Reviewer, Plagiarist Shitheel

Hi All,

Remember Ian Shirley, the scribe from Record Collector who drowsily panned TLASILA's recently released The Grief That Shrieked to Multiply, comparing its supposed longueurs to the horrors evoked by the film Event Horizon, albeit amplified, etc? Well, turns out he's a lazy fucking plagiarist too.

Check out the frame-grab (via iPhone) from Larry "Fuzz-O" Dolman's 2002 Blastitude review of To Live and Shave in L.A.'s The Wigmaker in Eighteenth-Century Williamsburg


Busted!

Cheers to Nicolas Clair for the heads-up. Much obliged!


What can one say? Old Ian's just another in a long line of sleazy, indolent buffoons...
