Supervert, whatever happened to this, from the NL@50 website? I'd love to read it:
Naked Lunch Discography: A Musical Guide — Burroughs loved Hoagy Carmichael’s Stardust (1927), and it was the music of the Jazz Age which touched him, and to which he was nostalgically attached. This was Burroughs’ true musical era — the era of sheet music, piano rolls, and the phonograph, vaudeville theatres and nightclubs, radio broadcasts, player pianos and song lyrics projected on cinema screens to piano, organ and orchestral accompaniment. Complementing Ian MacFadyen’s important chapter on this music in Naked Lunch@50: Anniversary Essays, nakedlunch.org will feature a series of pieces on the music actually referenced, detourned, mocked and ridiculed in Naked Lunch, with detailed historical and musicological information on those songs and tunes which constitute the book’s significant and omnipresent soundtrack.
