Asparagus Piss Raindrop & PS Glasgow
launch the publication
ASPARAGUS PISS RAINDROP
‘Asparagus Piss Raindrop’ gathers performance documentation, scores, working notes, communications and ephemera to produce a sprawling chronology of the group’s projects to date. New editions of the book will be generated following each future iteration of an Asparagus Piss Raindrop project.
During the publication launch, Asparagus Piss Raindrop will be ‘reading’ from the book.
'Asparagus Piss Raindrop their collective endeavour Asparagus Piss Raindrop published in the month of August Two Thousand and Seventeen at the very welcome and warmly bibliophilial invitation of Matt and Jess of Good Press issuing forth from archives, hard drives and box files of ourselves and other selves, performers and past endeavours. Commissions ensuing, commentaries and paraphrases, digressions and designs uplifting both the group and the group. Their progress confirmed within prose translations, lists, questions, illuminations, accounts and summaries. Readings thereafter reconfiguring and re-assembling the corpus through radio space and pastoral mediations.'

Publication Studio Glasgow presents its first project ‘Asparagus Piss Raindrop’ - an ever growing compendium of the group’s activity since 2012.
Asparagus Piss Raindrop are a crypto conceptual science fiction anti climax band dedicated to pushing beyond all reasonable limits what live music performance can be. Asparagus Piss Raindrop is formed from a dreadful, ever-expanding pool of performer / composer / improvisers from the Glasgow (and beyond) experimental music scene. The group‘s work arises from the questions; How can we do things otherwise? What musical forms arise from and inform our daily experience? Performances typically draw on such things as recycled children’s games, group therapy, shapeshifting, declarations of ridiculous texts, geology, architectural intervention, gender theory, site specificity and slug reproduction.
Publication Studio Glasgow is part of a worldwide network conceived in Portland, 2009. Each sibling studio produces publications with artists, writers and groups they admire whose content is then shared with other PS studios to be printed on demand and without limit. PS Glasgow, housed at the CCA, is managed by a group of partners and available as an open source resource for artists and writers to access book making facilities.
