Description

A rare collection of recordings featuring the American writer William S Burroughs and the British-born artist Brion Gysin, the man Burroughs credited with the invention of the 'cut-up' literary technique. The centre-piece of the collection is a complete, previously unissued recording of Burroughs reading live in Liverpool in 1982. The disc also includes performances by Gysin of a selection of his 'permutated poems', and previously unheard home recordings made by the pair in Paris in 1970, all taken from tapes in the British Library collection.show more
