@riffblaster general I’m a newbie here, never realised I was rubbing shoulders with a musical hero!

Seriously though. Jane Doe was a formative experience for me, I was about 14 when it released and it blew me away. Seen you guys a few times over the years in London, always a wonderful experience. Anyways, big thanks and love!

And thanks for connecting the dots for me @Giles. I love the image of Paula, unaware of what’s about to happen, in the pit for Converge 😂

Great list, @goosehd ; I am re-reading Kool-Aid now.

There was such a fundamental disjoint between the Pranksters and just about everything else that had come before, even if Cassady managed to bridge the gap between the Beats and the Hippies. All bets were off, anything was possible, and there were some genuine polymaths in and around the group (I am particularly gobsmacked by the brilliance, breadth, and depth of people like Bear Owlsley--what couldn't he do??), it was not just a bunch of drug-addled idiots (although of course there were also those).

A second of 5 albums to slot next to NOMEANSNO WRONG might be Joe's Garage by Zappa, and a lot of that on the strength of a young Vinnie Colaiuta's incredible drumming and drum sound. I would love a multitrack recording so I could just tune into the rhythm section on that thing.

I will also add Waiting for Columbus by Little Feat.

@Paul9221 I was trying to fine Snowy's sales post so you could see the bag, but I found ANOTHER Gibson Porter bag he sold--check out my response, you may get a kick out of it.

My tattooist knew Owlsley personally and would tell me stories about the scene during that time.  He was a biker, but during that time everything was interconnected.

4. Ham on Rye - Charles Bukowski


Good shout! I re-read this year, for the first time since I was a teenager. A real gut-punch. I loved it even more the second time round.

I read it for the first time this year, and it is definitely a gut punch…
Then I read “Post Office”, “Factotum”and “Women” right after…

Bukowski was one of the Greatest
