In Autumn 1982, in Brixton, London, BRION GYSIN, the eternal
accomplice of WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS, renewed the methods of
performance by reciting texts, hastily brought together with this performance, accompanied by SLITS-member TESSA, STEVE of RIP RIG AND PANIC, GILE of PENGUIN CAFE ORCHESTRA, and RAMUNTCHO MATTA on guitar. Ramuntcho, in the style of Brion, called this session "White Funk." Most of the texts were written upon meeting Burroughs, at the time of the invention of the cut-up. This recording is evidence of the extraordinary creativity and spontaneity of the musical and artistic scene at that time, and it refuses to age a bit. Beyond the nostalgia
inspired by the invocation of that bygone cultural scene, this is a renewed wake-up call for a kind of creativity that is terribly difficult to find today.
