T.R.S.: The Fucking Terrible Receding Shapes, trading as TRIPLE NEGATIVE – Nothing Is Possible Nervousness, Or Immorality Don't Wait To Be Hunted To Hide / Spoilt Health 

Penultimate Press / UK / 2023 / Book + CS

NOTHING IS POSSIBLE
NERVOUSNESS, OR IMMORALITY
DON'T WAIT TO BE HUNTED TO HIDE

Not obvious from any of the 3 front covers, but yes this is a Triple Negative product. T.R.S. is the eminence grease, the actual persons irresponsible.

Before anyone else gets blamed: almost all writing/drawing is by Clinical Wastemn ["Matthew Hyland"], except for the best piece of writing (Down With Childhood & Adulthood, mostly by Mme Tlank ["Anja Büchele"]) and Best Picture (I IS FOR [YOU ARE NOT] IMPOTANT, by Adam Vass). Denis Velimirovich is right there from start to finish but blamelessly so. See back cover for group portraits [L-R Velimirovich, Tlank, Wastemn in both].

[2 weeks + 2.5 punitive migraines later] So ------ the product is a compendium of bad bad grace/gratuitous disgrace, 1997-2022. Written 1998-2016; pictures made 2016-more or less now, apart from photocopied stickers/zine pages etc, which go back to 1997 (e.g. introuvable front/back covers of The Journal of Childish Psychology [*co-ed Naomi Rousseau, praised by the Sozialistisches Patientenkollektiv in a letter stating: only you have illness in your doing]).

Other Zeichnungen are all accidence (i.e. opposite of Cagey "chance"). Media are colour pencil, ink, photocopiers, collage. More birds, sea, flowers and Tlank in them than you might think, along with usual utopian city ruins. All 2D going on 1.

Even less clue what to write about written parts. Highlights of bathetic basso continuo? Full lyric sheet for Bad Emotional Investments (aggressive begging rebetiko on God Bless the Death Drive). 1998 thing about Artaud/Heaven's Gate/workplace motivational psych [*1st pub. Semiotext(e) but handscrawled manuscript was so fucked the print version looked like they applied pre-millennial OCR]. Unpublished hommage to Aotearoa's greatest living artist, Daniel S. Malone. Whole lot of B. Traven, Judge Schreber, Goya, Wm. Blake. Re-refutation of 1637 attempt by Massachusetts Bay Colony governor John Winthrop to refute Anne Hutchinson's Antinomian heresies. Hymn of praise (described by Ben Watson as "craven") to the late Robert Dellar/Ldn Mad Pride at large. 1 (one) actual love prose-poem, disguised by its 1st words being "T.J. Clark", who is most definitely not the addressee. etc etc
