Humor and derision exist alongside the unreal on Love Song for Zelda, realized with the help of William Burroughs, author of the hippies' must-have bedside book Junkie. Drugs are omni-present in the hallucinatory texts of Dashiell Hedayat. The musical and lyrical composition date from the autumn of 1969, from whence the choice of the title Obsolete. An avant-garde disc so cool, it'll never go out of style! After having composed a second, very rare, opus under the pseudonym Melmoth (the beginning of intoxication), Dashiell Hedayat has since adopted a different type of writing, and today has authored novels and Hollywood screenplays under the name Jack-Alain Léger.
