03.04.07 Episode 101:On the Road
We're celebrating Jack Kerouac this week, ahem, like without whom, you dig?
As Steven says, 'jack would devour, make love to, and push to new limits a language called English which he wouldn't speak until he was five years old. ' Indeed, "on the road" would change the world and our consciousness forever.
We're spinning some road songs and some stories about and by jack himself. The atmosphere he was born into - the legendary artists and writer who became his greatest friends - the birth of the beat generation.
You'll also hear a world premiere - three songs from an upcoming album by some folks we've dug before who live rather far away. A place where the water runs down the drain backwards.
Contemporary garage from the likes of Jarvis Humby, Gluecifer, Courtney Love, Manic Hispanic, the Charms, the Chesterfield Kings, Back in Spades, the Vines, and the Defectors.
So snap those fingers, and blow baby blow.
"It was drizzling and mysterious at the beginning of our journey. I could see that it was all going to be one big sags of the mist. "Whooee!" yelled Dean. "Here we go!" and he hunched over the wheel and gunned her; he was back in his element, everybody could see that. We were delighted, we all realized we were leaving confusion and nonsense behind and performing our one and noble function of the time, move."
- Jack Kerouac, On the Road

    Kerouac delves into the common man most write off as shallow degenerates and emerges with the truth of the World.
