Superior Viaduct reissue William S. Burroughs’ recorded debut, Call Me Burroughs. On this vinyl LP the avant garde master reads from his work. Merging politics, satire, sci-fi, cut-up techniques, beat culture and more, the words are utterly incomparable and Burroughs’ voice is equally unique; gravelly, powerful and melancholic.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 30th August 2016

Well-recorded selection of vignettes by the towering genius of the Beat Generation (who didn't appreciate being classified as either "beat" or "gay"). He was originally encouraged to start writing this stuff down by Kerouac, who was enthralled by the strange themes and characters of Bill's party fantasies and reminiscences, delivered in an almost autistic singsong. He cuts through the linear and distorts the line of reality like a seismograph perfectly attuned to the changes in the political and social mores of the century he lived through.
