My Own Mag

My Own Mag was produced by Jeff Nuttall, a larger than life figure in the history of the British counterculture, who edited it while working as a secondary school art teacher. Many prominent underground, Beat and related writers of a usually modest reputation, but not always, contributed to it. These included Anselm Hollo, Alan Brownjohn, Charles Plymell, Jim Haynes, William Wantling, Doug Blazek, Bill Butler, Carl Weissner, Claude Pélieu, Criton Tomazos, Robert Creeley, and Allen Ginsberg.

William S. Burroughs was the most prolific and important of these contributors, the publication is a rich treasure trove of his writings and thoughts on art, society, sexuality, deviance, literature and drugs. It is astonishing and laudable that Burroughs was publishing his most cutting edge work in a scruffy little zine that was self published and edited by a schoolteacher when he was a feted and notorious writer at the height of his fame after publishing Naked Lunch in 1959. My Own Mag was a ‘sandbox’ for Burroughs to play in and experiment with, primarily by publishing his own meta or sub-zines such as ‘The Moving Times’ and ‘The Burrough’. The first appearance of the former was in No. 5 the ‘Special Tangier Edition’, the front cover depicts a naively line-drawn Burroughs in a fez, smoking a cigarette. The free-for-all ethos of My Own Mag allowed Burroughs to introduce his cut ups directly into the text in a facsimile format, as with the 32 grid cut up manuscript entitled “Warning Warning Warning Warning Warning” in No. 5. My Own Mag was also where he began his long-lasting and fruitful collaborations with the aforementioned Claude Pélieu and Carl Weissner.

Gnaoua

GNAOUA, No. 1, edited by Ira Cohen
Tangier: Gnaoua Press, Spring 1964

First edition, perfect-bound in printed and illustrated wrappers, 5” x 8”, 104 pages, printed in Belgium. Designed by Rosalind Schwartz.

Poet, photographer, filmmaker, editor, and publisher Ira Cohen produced this one-shot magazine in Tangier in 1964. The title refers to an ethnic group originating in North and West Africa who eventually became part of the Sufi order in Morocco. In Cohen’s brief editorial statement, he notes that the magazine is named for the ecstatic dancing and possession trances of the North African sect of the same name, and concludes that “The object is exorcism”.

The magazine was in printed in Antwerp by Roger Binnemans and features striking cover art by Cohen’s then-girlfriend, the artist Rosalind Schwartz and features 5 black and white photographic plates illustrating Jack Smith’s “Superstars of Cinemaroc”, reproducing images from Smith’s infamous film Flaming Creatures (1963). Bob Dylan featured a copy of Gnaoua prominently on the cover of his fifth album, Bringing It All Back Home, among other artefacts chosen to pay tribute to the artist’s influences; it is possible that it was in Gnaoua that he first came across the work of William Burroughs.

Cut-Up Method

The cut-up technique (or découpé in French) is an aleatory literary technique in which a text is cut up and rearranged to create a new text. The concept can be traced to at least the Dadaists of the 1920s, but was popularized in the late 1950s and early 1960s by writer William S. Burroughs…

“I can feel the heat closing in, feel them out there making their moves.”

So starts Naked Lunch, the touchstone novel by William S. Burroughs. That hardboiled riff, spoken by a junkie on the run, introduces a mélange of “episodes, misfortunes, and adventures,” which, the author said, have “no real plot, no beginning, no end.”

Material from the manuscripts that would eventually comprise Naked Lunch first appeared in the literary periodicals of the late 1950’s including The Black Mountain Review, Yugen, Chicago Review, and Big Table among many others. These periodicals also published Burroughs’ early experimentation with the cut-up method that led to books like Minutes To Go and Soft Machine, as well as other routines like Roosevelt after Inauguration.

The following checklists seek to list those periodicals and publications that gave folks a first glimpse of episodes, experiments, and adventures before they were widely published.
