Something cool from the past…

Posted: September 24, 2012 in Forecast: Fascist Future!

Here is a little photostat I found online from an old LIFE (??!!) Magazine by Brion Gysin – a good friend and sometime collaborator of William S. Burroughs’s.
This is an excerpt from Gysin’s work  Minutes To Go, from 1960.

Also, Gysin was a close friend of Burroughs who was w/Bill in Tangier around the time the latter was writing what became Naked Lunch.

Hope you like this excerpt – a small picture of the “cut-up” method that Burroughs perfected in the print form and that Gysin went further on in the audio sense – spliced audio tapes, films, etc…
