“ONENESS & THE SUN”
Sound Library Series, Volume 55
KSE (bricolage division) #165
The first entry in KSE’s “bricolage division” since DON’T LET ME STAND IN YOUR WAY (KSE #21) four years ago, written in February 2010 during a visit to Lubbock, Texas while under the spell of the haunting, atmospheric album “abandoned space” by Sparkling Wide Pressure/Rambutan on the Small Doses label (dose 42, still available as of this writing at http://www.small-doses.com/newsblog/?page_id=14 ).
ONENESS & THE SUN is a trawl through 2010 America, catching in our net former Peace Corps workers held for crimes they did not commit, “cult” musical artists reading about themselves on a dial-up computer at the homeless shelter where they live, tubercular theosophists, and daily eruptions of Guantanamo blowback. This is America, caked in ice; this is America, cheaply priced…only $4 postpaid in the US, $5 elsewhere. It’s a long walk toward Oneness and The Sun!
KSE #165 is now available for ordering. It’s a hand-assembled, hand-numbered edition of 44 copies.
Cost is $4.00 each or 3 for $10.00 (only one copy of any book per customer) postpaid in the USA. Send a check (or well-concealed cash) made payable to Bill Shute, 14080 Nacogdoches Rd. #350, San Antonio, Texas, 78247.
