Officially re-released - one of our absolute classics, back in print at last. Extraodinary cut-up voices recorded during the mid-60's in hotel rooms in New York, Paris, London... It's impossible not to recognise the writer's voice - the sonority of this voice - a sonority also present in the silence of every text he wrote. An explosion of styles -a blasting of borders - the silence after a gunshot - the overtaking of the fetishized word - from the exploded painting to the cut tape.

This record starts with a piece of more than 13 minutes, recorded around 1965 with Ian Sommerville somewhere in New York and London - K-9 was in combat with the alien mind-screens, including various monologues, radio short waves and music... Tapes, cut and cut and cut up to the limit of sense - emerged new structures of communication... and senses. Words gain power when loosing the boundaries of semantics. Also includes Joujouka music recorded by WS Burroughs in the hills of Morocco with Ornette Coleman, circa 1973.
