Burroughs Brilliant Mind Bomb
Who was the phenomenon known as William Burroughs, and why was he so important and vital in the last decades of the 20th century? The man who (re)introduced the ‘Cut-Up’ technique to the literary world, accidentally shot his wife dead while playing a game of ‘William Tell’, and kick-started the multi-form, experimental, hallucinogenic Uber-Beat cult, was also inspired by, and borrowed, the techniques of pulp science fiction in his work. In the best traditions of a drug addled, down at heel, private dick we ask – Burroughs: How, what, where and why?
Hosted by James DC, with James Hollands, Richard Strange, Robin Tomens
