Brion Gysin :: Junk

Brion Gysin rubbed elbows with William Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg. The new version of his 1983 album Junk is something of an archeological expedition: it mixes alternates and an instrumental alongside an acoustic demo and a handful of tracks released in Gysin’s lifetime to create a record that never was. It’s an interesting, if short listen that mixes the ideas flowing out of New York with Gysin’s poetry and French singers.
