SLEEPY BRAIN: Vanilla Primitive

by Ytzhak Saturday, Aug. 23, 2003 at 7:54 PM
ytzhak@telus.net

The piece is "Vanilla Primitive" and it's another example of Braithwaite's unique "dub literature": cut-and-paste prose drenched in feedback and echo. Take the linguistic jouissance and near-future edginess of Anthony Burgess and Jack Womack, then splice that gene with hip hop verse and rhythm and you'll have something approximating Braithwaite's style.

SLEEPY BRAIN MAGAZINE (Another August Communique)



*****************************

Vanilla Primitive -- Lawrence Ytzhak Braithwaite

http://www.sleepybrain.net/vanilla.html

*****************************

Hello unto you,

SLEEPY BRAIN MAGAZINE is proud as punch to present another exclusive from

Lawrence Ytzhak Braithwaite (aka Lord Patch; aka The Rude Duke), acclaimed

author and spoken-word performer and perhaps the finest Canadian prose

writer alive. Find it here: http://www.sleepybrain.net/vanilla.html

The piece is "Vanilla Primitive" and it's another example of Braithwaite's

unique "dub literature": cut-and-paste prose drenched in feedback and echo.

Take the linguistic jouissance and near-future edginess of Anthony Burgess

and Jack Womack, then splice that gene with hip hop verse and rhythm and

you'll have something approximating Braithwaite's style. Add a liberal dose

of emotion; strength through adversity; indomitable, instinctual animal

spirit - and you're ready to take this baby to the streets.

EXCERPT FROM VANILLA PRIMITIVE: http://www.sleepybrain.net/vanilla.html

"A great code was taught to me once when I was sleeping from slamming a bolt

into my forehead to stop the shouting all outside my room. Sometimes it

would be cool to cut the top part of my skull open and remove my brain to

wash the mess/wadein the gutter primitive/vikings stiped bare/by the Ummah

on the night of their visions/it1d be all grey like smog infested

snot/follow Ghost to full capacity/focus/focus/life and story

stumble/literary DMC/throwing DJ on tables and scratching them/cuttin into

them/chop them up/let cross fade this/and it goes like when?/intellectual

property/I will give you literary attacks/you jackin philosophy/X-rays

to an

optical creed/I aight."

As Gail Scott wrote in an essay of New Narrative (Matrix 62): "Lawrence

Ytzhak Braithwaite's beautiful dangerous novels make him one of the

outstanding Canadian prose writers alive, and only the Americans seem to

know it."

Braithwaite loves and lives to Dub his prose like Lee "Scratch" Perry (who

he shares physical height with = 5'4) and King Tubby worked with music and

voice. His bunker/lab is in the Fernwood district of Victoria British

Columbia, Canada.
