PUB-NOTES

♦ We will soon be accepting submissions for our online cabaret, le scat noir. 
♦ watch for  a new book by doug rice on september 15th.  here lies memory is truly an unforgettable novel.
♦ alPHONSE allais’s first book (published in france in 1891) was titled A se tordre. this collection of 45 pieces, drawn largely from his contributions to the avant-garde paper  Le Chat Noir, put the author on the absurdist map. presently, our own doug skinner is putting the finishing touches on his translation — double over — which will feature the full volume plus additional texts not included in the original. to make this black scat edition even more special, there are drawings, detailed notes on the texts, and an introduction by skinner. needless to say, we are thrilled to be publishing this first  english translation — a most fitting addition to black scat’s series of books by the master humorist.
 ♦ also on the way … “the obsession issue” of black scat review. this is the magazine’s 16th issue and features eye-opening works by william gibson, Violet Capers, tony duvert, samantha memi, paulo brito, and many others.
♦ finally, don’t miss #32 in our absurdist texts & documents series: TRUE CRIME: The People vs. Rrose Sélavy.  this dada chapbook is destined to be a collector’s item.  
Happy labor day!

WORLD PREMIERE!

wayward_lrg

SCAT TRAX, the audio arm of Black Scat Books, is proud to present the exclusive World Premiere of The Wayward Lady—an experimental soundtrack by DrG Supreme.  This noirish mind-mix is a warped walk on the wild side (some might say “the other side”) … a trip down strange aural corridors where wanton giggles erupt and vanish – replaced by pauses so pregnant you’ll swear sextuplets are on the way. Clicks and coughs collide, bounce and drift in spirals of nasty laughter. And that music..what the hell is THAT? Maybe we’re in a cocktail lounge in Schenectady or, more likely, Madrid. Suddenly a grunt of passion is snuffed by the sound  of footsteps. Who’s knocking at the door? An irate cuckold? A cop on the make? Or a voluptuous mistress bent on revenge?…

The plot is locked away in your imagination.
