Boomkat Product Review:
Gatefold LP reissue. Available again for first time in years
'Break Through In Grey Room' is an historic collection of cut-up tape works by William S. Burroughs aided and abetted by Ian Sommerville and Brion Gysin. First compiled and released in 1986, but documenting recordings made and cut-up during the mid-'60s in hotel rooms of Paris, New York, London, Tangiers, it stands as testament to Burroughs pioneering work striving to "cut the pre-recorded time line of present time, and let the future leak through", by splicing and dicing recordings of monologues, radio waves, and Morroccan joujouka music until they're utterly deconstructed and take on a whole new meaning.
