£16.99
Collects Giorno's radical poetry from 1960s Pop-Art inspired pieces to the psychedelic cut-ups of the 1970s, laden with explosive configurations of queer sex and spiritual practice. Giorno rose to fame as the star of Warhol's film SLEEP and was a pioneer of multimedia poetry. His use of transgressive material and in-your-face amplified delivery was a key influence for punk pioneers such as Throbbing Gristle and Black Flag. Whether written, performed or recorded, Giorno's work is a shining jewel in the ongoing revolution of poetry and language.
