M.O.D. Technologies Releases THE ROAD TO THE WESTERN LANDS - William S. Burroughs / Bill Laswell (Incunabula Digital Series) On Sept. 2

William S. Burroughs - reading from his classic novel - The Western Lands, the final volume of the trilogy that began with Cities Of The Red Night, published in 1981, and The Place Of Dead Roads in 1984. Burroughs at his most spiritual, informative and shamanistic, with heavy references to the Egyptian Book Of The Dead and Norman Mailer's epic work - Ancient Evenings. Set to the musical soundtrack of Bill Laswell's Material, featuring Indian violin master - L. Shankar, Jamaican drum legend - Sly Dunbar, Senegalese percussionist - Aiyb Dieg and others. A miracle project to be sure.
Miracles are made from the most unlikely ingredients. And miracles are the deadliest of all weapons, when all else fails, the final, the last result is a miracle.
