Hi all,

Spring is coming ! Not too soon ! This winter has been long, cold and damp and seemed endless.

Recently, I went to Paris and met Ramuntcho for an interview on a video, which I am going to transcript to add in the book "Le Temps des Naguals : autour de Burroughs et Gysin". I am going to work at the video before putting it on line : to view next month.

 

Books : 

Interzone compilation :

Jeff J. Dobson asked me about the compilation of Interzone writings gathered a number of years ago.

Actually the volutme of stuff is HUGE !!!!!!!!!!!!! it's so thick that I have not been able to put the whole of it on line : but most of it is at :

but there also are cut-ups and short stories.
 
You can also find some on line at http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/tn.html
 
I have all the files gathered on my computer and saved on CD.
 
I cannot publish it in a book because it's too big and it would take days to print the whole. But for those who are interested, I can put it on a CD and send it to you.
 

Electrophone : Le monde est plein de frites et de télévisions aquatiques:

 
I have received this book written by Electrophone (the pseudo of the writer). The illustration of the cover is a painting by Michel PAGNOUX , whose gallery is in Interzone Gallery :

Here is below the article about it written by Jean-Michel Collet in L'Indépendant, April 27th 2008 :
 
"Le monde est plein de frites et de télévisions aquatiques."
 
"Voilà un titre fort dalinien dont on ne pourra tirer aucune explication auprès de l’auteur puisque celui-ci ne se dévoile que sous le pseudonyme d’Electrophone.
Nous n’avons, que quelques indices: il est originaire de Salses et connaît l’artiste peintre Michel Pagnoux qui est l’auteur de la couverture. Quant à la maison d’édition “La Buanderie électrique” elle ne figurait point sur Ia liste des stands de la San Jordi. Mystère, mystère... Ce n’est pas un livre, c’est un joyeux et impertinent bordel où le rock’n’roll vrombit à fond les potentiomètres. On nous annonce des contes pour grands enfants et c’est un peu ça en beaucoup moins formel. En tout cas ça déchire grave, ce n’est pas du tout politiquement correct et le
délire n’est pas mince.
Etrange et décapant...."
