Banjo vandalism… a cut-up review


All this talk of William S. Burroughs got me in the mood for some mischievous cut-up fun. So I had a sniff round some of the reviews and I thought John Le Baptiste’s review of A Hard Day’s Night could benefit from some Burroughs style sabotage. I used the Lazarus Corporation’s text mixing desk and used just a single cut-up engine module, with a setting of six words per cut. I think the resulting text makes much more sense than JLB’s original post. See what you think:

A Hard Day’s Night by John Le Baptiste (Banjo Fett remix)

Proven that george was at least half entrance into the capersome world of halfway through, when the ‘quazy sagacity and indian-style insight. in the top of the barrel, laugh, no tried and tested way of deciding in fact it has been scientifically favourite scene in this film came eric morecambe and ernie wise pale and sad. I could never work out ostensibly, not. I think my that of a distressed piglet. the hilarious and witty but chicken chunks down a small aperture 1964? styleless unhip guttersnipe undulating hillocks of a vernal chapman – the list goes on.

what is a hard profound and fab in equal maudlin fashion, ‘those meffs are incapable of formulating even the always doing that, la’. pure big-faced guitarist of the byrds, hibernating stoats. everyone laughs why. here is my review of a hard of rag and loathsome half-chewed camera peers through the hole to thankfully, I have an audio-visual stranded in the midst of the 24 hour unfortunately inaudible. meadow. they come upon a barrel are deceased and paul and ringo are, tree, and start throwing dirty bits measure.

    That is the best thing ever. The cut-up technique mercilessly reveals all of the totems and golums of my depraved and confused sub-conscious mind. I’d like to see some more of them. Perhaps more might be learned about the mysterious entity that is Old Rope if his prose were similarly transposed.

    My favourite sentence in the above was the following, especially the last 7 words which were strangely moving.

    ‘in the top of the barrel, laugh, no tried and tested way of deciding in fact it has been scientifically favourite scene in this film came eric morecambe and ernie wise pale and sad.’

    I liked that line too. I also like the idea of a ‘capersome world of halfway through’ and the rabid confusion of ‘hilarious and witty but chicken chunks down a small aperture 1964?’

    What matters midwinter? Probably not.

  3. johnlebaptiste Says:

    ‘small aperture 1964’ sounds like a novel by Burroughs himself.

    I must borrow some of your Burroughs novels Mester Fett.

  4. Banjo Fett Says:

    Sure thing. I just checked I still have them. There’s: Junky, Queer, Naked Lunch, The Soft Machine, The Place of Dead Roads and Last Words.

    I particularly liked the weariness suggested in ‘undulating hillocks of a vernal chapman – the list goes on’ and the acerbic tone imparted by ‘everyone laughs why’.
