3 neue Tapes auf SLOOW TAPES, hier der Wortlaut:
Take a Chance In The Void: Harold Norse at the Beat Hotel
Sloow Tapes – CS 60
Historical recordings made by Harold Norse when he was living with William Burroughs, Brion Gysin and Gregory Corso at the notorious Beat Hotel in Paris during the early sixties. By the time Norse arrived in Paris he had traveled extensively in Morocco and Europe and his poetry was already championed by people like W. H. Auden, William Carlos Williams and Tennessee Williams.
Together with Burroughs and Gysin, Norse was one of the first to apply the cut-up method. He made the technique totally his own creating a hallucinogenic, irrational world of bizarre characters. His surreal stories were collected in ‘Beat Hotel’ and is one of the important novels of cut-up fiction. At some point Harold bought a tape recorder and recorded himself reading his delirious cut-ups and his translations of satirical, erotic and obscene sonnets by the 19th century Roman poet G.G. Belli. Also included are a few soundexperiments and ‘field recordings’. An essential document of a true visionary! Edition of 100 copies.
C Joynes et son Ensemble
Sloow Tapes – CS 40
A true man of the world guitarist C Joynes travelled extensively through Pakistan, Sudan, Kenya, Uganda and Eritrea. Not surprisingly his playing is influenced by African music, especially on these recordings with the Ensemble which add a bunch of exotic instruments to his English folkmelodies for maximum alien ritual effect. Edition of 70 copies.
Sloow Tapes – CS 60
Live recordings from Barcelona, summer 2009. Frankensteins Ballet features Mik Quantius (Embryo) speaking-in-tongues and Thomas Hopf on drums. Other members have played with Damo Suzuki, Michael Karoli, Michael Rother etc. Some serious damaged krautrock jams happening on this one, not to mention the weird dub space some of this is floating into. Edition of 70 copies.
