Klactoveedsedsteen

Tags: , , , ,

Klactoveedsedsteen — the title came from a 1947 Charlie Parker album — was a little mag begun by Weissner in 1965 and distributed through his own PANic Press. Five issues, each in a different format, appeared in two years. The zine was notable for its experimentalism and the quality of its contributors, which included William S. Burroughs, Charles Bukowski, Allen Ginsberg, and a number of other writers prominent in the underground and alternative press. The Klactoveedsedsteen archive now resides at the Harry Ransom Center of the University of Texas.

Note the blurbs by William S. Burroughs — “Found the scroll (KLACTO/2 special cutup issue. — Ed.) most interesting and much along the lines of what I have been doing … best of luck with your magazine …” — Bukowski, et al.

hi Jed, I am writing your from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I was researching on the international contacts of a local visual poet, Edgardo Vigo, and I’ve found that he has published one of his pieces on the Klactoveedsedsteen 23 International issue, the same in which a Burroughs piece also appeared. I was wondering if you had some more images of this issue, and if you could publish them on your site. Thanks a lot, best wishes
Carlos
