Brion Gysin - Junk LP


Sold Out

Label: Wewantsounds

Wewantsounds presents this reissue of Brion Gysin's cult avant-funk album produced by Ramuntcho Matta in the early '80s.

The hugely influential Gysin who, with his friend William Burroughs, was revered by the likes of David Bowie, Brian Jones, Laurie Anderson, and Genesis P-Orridge, is accompanied here by Matta -- on his return from a two-year spell in New York -- and French post punk stalwarts Yann Le Ker (from the group Modern Guy) and Frederic Cousseau (from Suicide Romeo) plus special guests including Don Cherry, Elli Medeiros, Lizzy Mercier Descloux, Caroline Loeb, and Senegalese drummer Prosper Niang (Xalam).

This is the first time the album is reissued on vinyl, newly remastered from the original tapes, augmented with bonus tracks and a two-page color insert featuring new liner notes by Gysin scholar Jason Weiss.
