First ever reissue of Brion Gysin's 80's cult Avant-Funk classic produced in Paris by Ramuntcho Matta between 1980 and 1984, and featuring Don Cherry, Lizzy Mercier Descloux, and Elli Medeiros.

All in all, »Junk« is a unique time capsule documenting some of the most cutting-edge music produced in Paris in the 80s, led by Gysin's flamboyant personality and Matta's daring music, which Wewantsounds is delighted to bring back on vinyl four decades on.

The hugely influential Gysin who, with his friend William Burroughs, was revered by the likes of David Bowie, Brian Jones, Laurie Anderson, Genesis P-Orridge, is accompanied here by Matta - on his return from a two-year spell in New York - and French post punk stalwarts Yann Le Ker (from the group Modern Guy) and Frederic Cousseau (from Suicide Romeo) plus special guests including Don Cherry, Elli Medeiros, Lizzy Mercier Descloux, Caroline Loeb and Senegalese drummer Prosper Niang (Xalam).

This is the first time the album is reissued on vinyl, newly remastered from the original tapes, augmented with bonus tracks and a 2-page colour insert featuring new liner notes by Gysin scholar Jason Weiss.
