AH POOK IS HERE -

This 1994 stop-frame interpretation of recordings by the late William S. Burroughs, was crafted around a selection of tracks from the album "Dead City Radio" produced by Hal Willner & Nelson Lyon - and featuring music by John Cale.

"Phillip Hunt's gorgeous, grisly animation mates William Burroughs's gravelly narration of Ah Pook The Destroyer's death-dealing parable with music by John Cale at his creepiest. Hunt's deliberate and disgusting illustrations of Burrough's monsters of the mind are a revelation; delicately articulated puppets riddled with revolting detail. Turn down the lights, get out the headphones, and give yourself over to The Master's ghastly visions and sonorous warnings ("The world cannot be controlled, except by accident") for six gut-churning minutes."
