Painter and author Brion Gysin (1916–86) has become an incredibly influential artist and iconoclast. His development of the “cut-up” technique together with William S. Burroughs has inspired several generations of writers, artists and musicians. Gysin was also a skilled networker and revered expat; together with his friend Paul Bowles, Gysin more or less constructed the post-beatnik romanticism dealing with life, music and magic in Morocco. He was also a protagonist in an international gay culture with inspirational reaches in both America and Europe. Not surprisingly, Gysin has become something of a cult figure.

One of the artists he inspired is Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (1950-2020), who collaborated with both Gysin and Burroughs in the 1970s and 80s, while working with avant garde music/performance projects Throbbing Gristle and C.O.U.M. Transmissions. The Gysin interviews made by P-Orridge have since become part of a New Wave/Industrial Culture mythos. This volume presents them in their entirety alongside three texts about Gysin by P-Orridge, plus additional material by editor Andrew M McKenzie, photographer/filmmaker Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson, and authors Jon Savage, Kathelin Gray, Paul “Bee” Hampshire, and Carl Abrahamsson.

Brion Gysin: His Name Was Master is an exclusive and evocative insight into the mind of a man P-Orridge describes as “a kind of Leonardo da Vinci of the last century,” and a fantastic complement to existing biographies and monographs.
