ANTIQUEWHITE RAIN (sound library series, volume 45)

by     A. J.  Kaufmann

Now that he’s back in Poland, re-emerged from the underground, and returned from his travels in Germany, France, and Morocco,   A. J. Kaufmann has been on fire. We at KSE want to do our part to capture and document this poetic energy-burst, so we’re proud to present, outside the regular release schedule, the 45th entry in the Sound Library Series, ANTIQUEWHITE RAIN (KSE #139), inspired by German rocker Inga Rumpf’s 1975 album Second-Hand Mädchen (Inga Rumpf may be best-known to Americans as vocalist-guitarist with the early 70’s band Frumpy).

10 new poems. Nightmarish German Ages collide with primal rhythms while a sharp-toothed Antiquewhite second-hand Berlin mädchen plays with her Kiwi eyelids, summer passes, the jokers wait outside, and we all continue the search for Ray Charles’ America.

ANTIQUEWHITE RAIN by A. J. Kaufmann…it’s exactly what you think it is, except higher proof and higher velocity.

Hand-numbered, hand-assembled edition of 51 copies., of which 16 are already gone.

Cost is $4.00 each or 3 for $10.00 (only one copy of any book per customer) postpaid in North America. Send a check (or well-concealed cash) made payable to Bill Shute, 14080 Nacogdoches Rd. #350, San Antonio, Texas, 78247. OR chapbooks are available to overseas readers DIRECT FROM KSE postpaid outside of North America for only $5 each. Overseas orders should write to django5722 (at) yahoo (dot) com and request a paypal invoice for whatever you’d like.
