Diamond Hidden in the Mouth of a Corpse - Compilation Front Cover-Artwork

A legendary compilation with contributions from no less legendary figures/bands like William S. Burroughs, Sonic Youth, Husker Du, Michael Gira, Coil and many others.

It is now available for download via Ubuweb.

Each year, Giorno and his friend William S. Burroughs put out a compilation featuring themselves and the musicians most admired among the New York loft set.

This year he and Burroughs are joined by Coil’s tromping and pulsing instrumental “Neither His Nor Yours” as it sets with a dance beat of hissing steam-iron sounds on a ping-pong stereo march. Swans member Michael Gira reads on his track, and Sonic Youth bring their raggedly jagged cutting-edge guitars to Kim Gordon’s sensitively moaned vocal drones.

Including Husker Du’s 1983 recording of “Won’t Change” is a calculated bid for the affections of college radio programmers. What the other groups share in sound and image, Husker don’t.
SPIN, May 1986

Check out this Leftfield, Alternative, Spoken Word, Experimental comp from hell, with memorable moments by Cabaret Voltaire, Sonic Youth, Diamanda Galas, and COIL.
Released through Giorno Poetry Systems label (run by a poet John Giorno), artwork for the compilation was created by New York artist Keith Harring.
