coming in September, KSE’s first CDR release:
SIR PLASTIC CRIMEWAVE
“String/Soul/Eye” (KSE #172)
higherkey feedback-drone gtr pieces from Chicago’s legendary psychedelic shaman…the first in our new music CDR series. once every three months, we will be issuing a CDR in place of a poetry chapbook, presenting the best drone/electroacoustic/psych/experimental/free-jazz & free-improv/contemporary composition/higherkey & beyond music in low-priced CDR editions…pretty much the same thing we’ve been doing with poetry for 4 1/2 years now transferred to contemporary music. Our first three artists are now set, taking us into early 2011—-we’ll announce the next two when all the details are in place. This first release also features a beautiful original artwork by Bob Bruno (former Circus Maximus co-leader and distinguished jazz player). Thanks to Steve “Plastic Crimewave” Krakow for agreeing to be our leadoff release. I can’t think of anyone who epitomizes both the psychedelic aesthetic and the DIY ethos better than Sir PC himself, and I’ve enjoyed his own experimental CDR’s so much that he is in some way a model for our own CDR series. Check the blog for updates…estimated release date on this is September 2010.
