Ruine 1974-2014: ACHTUNG!

Karl Schmidt Verlag new release update: Tom Smith - Ruine 1974-2014. This two-disc stochastic anthology spans the titular timeline and offers the adventurous listener 90-second extracts of 82 works, the majority of which have never been issued in any form. (Each year is represented by three minutes of music.) The teaser poster (included with the deluxe version) was posted on Friday. The album's insert card for the first of its two discs may be admired below.

Demand has been running high. I understand that not every enthusiast can afford the deluxe edition. So, KSV is offering a second iteration: the two discs, no accompanying booklet, but a sweet A3 print of the teaser poster and a hard-stock info card. 

€13 Eurozone, €15 everywhere else, postpaid. Paypal: tlasila [at] gmail [dot] com.

* Thus designated as the music was Shavian while the band (often only Tom) labored under the very soft contract stipulation that required the use of the POI moniker.

Recap: deluxe edition, with 48-page booklet, etc., Eurozone €31, elsewhere €37. (Shipping from Germany becomes rather more expensive when a package includes more weight.) The music for music's sake edition: €13 Eurozone, €15 everywhere else.

Cheers,

TS
