T/SMS: TST 02

First public track from my new T/SMS project, from the forthcoming TSTS EP. All electronic, little or no vocals (with "TST 02", no vox), a combination of looped samples and original sounds, unashamedly inspired by recent developments, flexible enough both for live improvisation or enhanced playback seizure. The "SMS" comes from the most common German mispronunciation of my last name. Download or listen or ignore at your peril, etc etc.

Cheers,

Ian Shirley: Record Collector Reviewer, Plagiarist Shitheel

Hi All,

Remember Ian Shirley, the scribe from Record Collector who drowsily panned TLASILA's recently released The Grief That Shrieked to Multiply, comparing its supposed longueurs to the horrors evoked by the film Event Horizon, albeit amplified, etc? Well, turns out he's a lazy fucking plagiarist too.

Check out the frame-grab (via iPhone) from Larry "Fuzz-O" Dolman's 2002 Blastitude review of To Live and Shave in L.A.'s The Wigmaker in Eighteenth-Century Williamsburg


Busted!

Cheers to Nicolas Clair for the heads-up. Much obliged!


What can one say? Old Ian's just another in a long line of sleazy, indolent buffoons...
