Originally released in 1999 by Sub Rosa, now reissued. Hashishisheen -- The End of Law is one of Bill Laswell's best-known masterpieces of ambient spoken-word. The works of William S. Burroughs and collaborator Brion Gysin are the main inspiration and key to the initiation of The Hashisheen project. Through immense exposure to their innovative experimentation, Bill Laswell developed a strong interest in North Africa, Arab culture, Islam, the Tangier scene, the Master Musicians of Jajouka, Paul Bowles, ritual magick, drugs and travel; and discovered their obsession with the wild heretical actions of the Persian-Hassan-i-Sabbah, who claimed to be the incarnation of God on earth -- Hassan, son of Sabbah. Featuring the music of Bill Laswell, W.S. Burroughs, Iggy Pop, Techno Animal, Patti Smith, Lizzy Mercier-Descloux, Genesis P-Orridge, Jah Wobble, Paul Schutze, Anne Clark, Hakim Bey, Nicky Scopelitis, Peter Wilson, Nicole Blackman, Ira Cohen, Helios Creed, Anton Fier, Sussan Deyhim and Percy Howard III.
