Return to previous page

 A double CD featuring a host of classic beatnik 45s as dug by The Cramps’ Lux and Ivy.

• Featuring super rare sides, weird pontification, finger clicking hipness, deep thinking diatribes and the inevitable mention of goatees on a set of suitably ginchy grooves.

• Including Edd ‘Kookie’ Byrnes, Don Morrow, Langston Hughes, Slim Gailliard, the late great Ken Nordine, Rod McKuen, Cal Tjader, Babs Gonzalez and a host of others searching for the “cool”.

• With revered beat poets Kenneth Patchen and Lawrence Ferlinghetti set to jazz and mindless tunes by Dizzy Gillespie, Roy Eldridge and Bob Dorough among others.

• Featuring a blast on novelty 45s from Cacique And His Tribe, The Jokers, The Expresso’s, Honkers, Dick Summers, Three Bips And A Bop, Steve Allen and Sylvester Statuslack Hup.

• Remastered from the original sound sources with sleevenotes by MOJO magazine’s Dave Henderson.
