KD Returns to KSV!

Hello Droogs,

Kevin Drumm and I picked up our conversation - one that surges, drifts off, abates, and swells with elliptic certainty every few months - in the orthopedic ward of a hospital. He was in Chicago, and I was recovering from leg surgery (broken fibula) in Hannover. We were shooting the breeze, discussing Blue Öyster Cult, better names for kids (we settled on Four-Hour Binaural YouTube), Windy City rents, our 2011 tour (which we both enjoyed tremendously), and muzak-making.

Coming Friday, a new KD album on Karl Schmidt Verlag.

Pre-wire your jaws, as they're bound to plummet.

Convalescence: Day Eleven

Completed the final side-long mixes for Forbidden Mourning Practice, the forthcoming Boat Of compilation tape on Hitomi Arimoto's 777 Was 666 imprint.

Took my first extended stroll through the neighborhood since returning home from the hospital. Astounded I can walk on my right leg so soon after surgery and implantation of a metal plate, screws, boatswain's pipe, etc.

Convalescence: Day Ten

Healing apace, can't complain.

We finally got round to watching Ingrid Goes West. Brutal, hilarious, brilliant.

NRA Pedophilia: Rush-Release Today via KSV!

(Amended 23 Feb 18.)

Hi Droogs,

The debut EP by Birmingham, Alabama's NRA Pedophilia has just been issued by Karl Schmidt Verlag. Smeared by Anti-Kidporn Lib Elites was pitched to our in-house trail boss Paranoid Leather less than 36 hours ago and rushed into production immediately thereafter. Sauer and Rem were fine-tuning the 20-minute piece up to the last minute, and I vouch for all the loose threads and slight imperfections. There'll be no physical edition, as per NRA Pedo's request. 

01 Smeared by Anti-Kidporn Lib Elites (19:34)

€4.99 via KSV Bandcamp.

More Excellence from Lindy West...

What the White House Knew About Rob Porter

From the Times op-ed:

"It should come as no surprise, then, that the Trump White House shrugged at the safety of two individual American women; after all, it is expressly hostile to the safety of 125 million. This is an administration that campaigned, explicitly, on a promised return to some midcentury mirage of American “greatness,” when white men ruled unfettered and the rest of us resumed our places on the spectrum between property and servitude."

A Kerb Twixt Mesomorphs...

(Amended and expanded from a same-day socmed post.)

Hey ids n' superegos - I'm still collecting all the postcard and mailing list inquiries left for me at FB, so I thought I'd crawl out of the basement for a moment to thank all the weirdo hackers who sent me automated friend requests last year on that damnably storied platform. I received about 80 of them in total, and I recently signed each and every droid to a long-term Karl Schmidt Verlag contract. First up, Kaylee Ashleigh Colette. She's helming the first of 13 volumes of Facebook Spam-Bots Remix the Work of Zbigniew Karkowski, and I couldn't be more pleased with her effort. Cybermeat is groovy.

(The alb is available now at KSV Bandcamp.)
