KSV: Open Vault Weekend #1!

Hi Again,

This, the first of many posts scheduled for this weekend, should set certain hearts ablaze. Karl and I have decided to open well-fortified sectors of the KSV archive once every three months and allow those who missed purchasing titles now long out-of-print the opportunity to get with the advanced program. These aren't re-pressings, and the offer expires Sunday at midnight, our time (GMT +2). If there's something you need, grab it. When Monday rolls around, the vault closes.

Why? We want to keep the sounds in circulation. Only a few of you will take us up on the offer, but we'd rather have one or two more curious passersby hear Anne's crazed album or the sterling Crvi disc than not.

What's available this weekend? Any album from the following sequence: KSV 001 (To Live and Shave in L.A. 666 - Konstriktion und Narzissmus) through KSV 051 (Crvi - Two Adaptive Behavior Collisions).

(We're not including KSV 044, Tom Smith's Naturally Occurring Black Metal λόγος, as our publications remain in print via our I Demand, Goddammit division after their initial release periods have ended.)

Again, only KSV 001 through KSV 051. If you order anything outside this moldering graveyard plot, your funds will be returned.

(Of course, the currently available KSV albums - 097-100/102-105 - are exempt from the conditions outlined above.)

On December 10th, we'll open the archive again and offer the KSV 052-KSV 105 sequence for late-comers, minus KSV 054 (Unpunished, a book, still in print), KSV 061 (What's a qNadsat Word for Tank Jazz?, a 50-disc retrospective which won't be offered again), KSV 090 (the forthcoming Peed Inks: Visualizations of Hemocyte Morphology tome), and KSV 101, which was and remains a free download.

We have no standing inventory. Everything on KSV is made to order. If you want to dip your toes into our brackish pools of memory, you're more than welcome.

Until 11:59 PM, Sunday.

Best,

Karl und TS

101 Convergences: #3
