Coming Up: "Let Me Hang You" by William S. Burroughs

A new LP out this Friday features the late Beat Generation William S. Burroughs reading bits of his cut-up novel "Naked Lunch" over the musical accompaniment of jazz musicians Bill Frisell, Wayne Horvitz and others.

Details:
Twenty years ago, William S. Burroughs was asked to record an audio version of his favorite parts of ''Naked Lunch.'' Hal Wilner and James Grauerholz produced several sessions and recruited a team of world class musicians to help. Famed for their Naked City involvement, Bill Frisell and Wayne Horowitz contributed their genius as well as Eyvind Kang just to name a few. The recordings were then abandoned and collecting dust on a musty shelf as forgotten as a piece of rancid ectoplasm on a peepshow floor. In 2015, Hal Willner decided to reopen this unfinished masterpiece and asked help from King Khan (a musician that he and Lou Reed admired and became fast friends with after two fiery performances by the King Khan & BBQ Show at Lou and Laurie's request in the Sydney Opera House). Hal sent Khan all of the recordings and asked him to add his gris gris to this extremely perverted gumbo...and history was made and the scum began to rise! King Khan recruited M Lamar, the creator of the ''Negrogothic'' movement who also happens to be the identical twin brother of famous transgender actress Laverne Cox (''Orange Is The New Black'') the Frowning Clouds, a band of young Australian boys who have mastered the sixties Garage punk sound and that perhaps WSB would have also enjoyed for other purposes a long time ago. King Khan's new label appropriately named ''Khannibalism'' is proud to present the first LP/CD from this imprint... William S. Burroughs ''Let Me Hang You'' - a collection of depraved genius straight from the godfather of punk's very own mouth. If chills and thrills are what you seek, then look no further, here is the bible of freakdom recited by the pope of the underground....now, pull the chair from underneath you and see what happens...
