Material - Seven Souls

Although Material were active with Bill Laswell and Michael Beinhorn at the helm since 1978, when the latter left in 1985, Bill continued under the name, recruiting able lieutenants as the need arose. From this point on Material steered into more dub-ambient African/Asian influenced territories. This was released in 1989 and contains the spoken word of the mighty William S. Burroughs!

There are parts of this that sound a little dated some 25 years after the event and the "Equation" track seems completely out of context. However, the word of the great man over some great North African styled rhythms is ultimately magnificent. radioactive as an old joke...
