BEAT, BEAT, BEATSVILLE!: Beatnik Rock ‘N’ Roll

“Some people like to rock. Some people like to roll.
But me, I like to sit around to satisfy my soul.
I like my women short. I like my women tall.
And that’s about the only thing I really dig at all.”
.
“Hey Daddy-O! Don’t hand me one of that Kerouac and Ginsberg jive. That’s Drag-City! These are the sides I wanna hear. So what if they’re all a put on?! Big Deal. The whole Beat Generation was a put on right from the beginning anyway. Man, I’ll take Maynard G. over Jack K. any day. Or the Wild Man of Wildsville (Lord Buckley guesting on Beany & Cecil dig?!). Those cats know where life’s at. Get Hip. This is the real score, the platter that puts the beat back into beatnik. Endsville!” A crazy set of cool ’50s & ’60s rock & roll, free-garageish sounds, beatnik poetry, hip-jazz and a whole lotta wacky weirdness. A few familiar tracks plus lots of really hard-to-find stuff, compiled into a set of instant party mashers! Absolutely staggering array of sounds, from Herman Munster opening off reading “Beat” poetry to Lord Buckley providing the voice of “Go Man Van Go” as The Wild Man of Wildsville and lots and lots of hipness in between.”

“I belong to the beat generation.
I don’t let anything trouble my mind.
I belong to the beat generation.
And everything’s goin’ just fine.”
[Bob Mcfadden & Dor “The Beat Generation“]
