CALMA-Trio: 1986, Jazz zum Fixsen.

Black & illus. throughout. 51 pp. Small 8vo, orange printed softcover. Frankfurt: Galerie Grässlin-Ehrhardt, 1986.

A scarce Kippenberger publication, printed in an edition of ca. 1000 copies, according to Koch. Much of the edition was handed out at a Calma Trio concert on 11 March 1987 at the Neuschwanstein discotheque in Cologne. There are biographies and a list of “musical activities” for members of the trio: Rüdiger Carl, Martin Kippenberger, and Albert Oehlen

“This book (dedicated to Stefan Aust) has the same format and design as the books in the “Reclam Universalbibliothek” series [see Koch no. 30]. It contains small, midfield illustrations of abstract drawings surrounded by brief text passages.”–Koch.

A fine copy.
