Antonin Artaud was a French poet, dramatist, and director and one of the most important figures in 20th century European theater, and especially the avant/garde. His piece -Pour En Finir Avec Le Jugement De Dieu- was recorded in 1947 to be aired on French radio. But the project was shelved not only for its scatological, anti/American, anti/religious content, but also for its avant/garde sound, with screams, cries, grunts, glossolalia, and general cacophony, all of which the radio thought would be too shocking for the listeners of post/WWII France. Now regarded as one of his most brilliant works, the piece is finally available again on vinyl courtesy of Fantôme Phonographique. Limited edition of 500 handnumbered copies.
