Performance 30:20

Issued by Karl Schmidt Verlag as KSV 303 in a limited edition of 30 in September 2013.

Recorded live (by Dave Phillips) on May 14, 2008 at Cinema Oblo, Lausanne, Switzerland. Two card readers, a snare drum and cymbal, and a voice. And say goodbye to everything that came before or dares follow. That fucking good.

From TLASILA Blog:

Drying out and winding down after another convulsive gig, this time at Cinéma Oblò in Lausanne. My head is an infinite plateau of trip-hammers, and I have grown quite fond of the 3 Euro Paracetamol script I scored in Valencia. Coughing yields headaches which trigger tectonic plate deformations. The "grip" is the Dennis Miller of respiratory maladies - unfunny as fuck, but too entrenched within whorls of septic banality to allow itself to be expunged from the system. Tired of having six broadaxes lodged in my skull....
