The Ebony Tower / She Walks Crooked - Dedicated To William S. Burroughs

1. The Ebony Tower - Junky
2. She Walks Crooked - Queer

two slabs of literary harsh noise wall from the ebony tower and she walks crooked, fixated on the works of william s. burroughs.

"junky" was the first piece of burroughs' writing that I ever read and it definitely left a lasting impression on me. his depiction of heroin addition in early 1950's new york is graphic and enthralling. originally published as a trashy pulp novel by ace books under a pseudonym but once "naked lunch" became a hit, it was reprinted under burroughs' real name.

"queer" was originally intended as a companion piece to "junky" but wasn't published until much later for a variety of reasons - controversial subject matter, unknown writer, etc. - but was finally released in 1985.

I'm a big fan of the ebony tower, so I'm excited to be able to share this split with she walks crooked, with whom I was previously unfamiliar. each side of this tape is a brutal, unrelenting wall, designed to obliterate all distraction and unnecessary thought.

and they do just that.

copies are still available and surprisingly affordable, so don't miss out.

(buy a copy.)

  1. This is great...just as anything dedicated to Mr B should be!

    Cities Of The Red Night was my first...

    This: is a great biog tribute to the cut up, unbelievably it's still available for pennies. Totally recommend it!
