The Culture Club: Theme For June 2007

This month we’re looking at the Beats:

  • On The Road (Novel) – Jack Kerouac
  • Howl (Poem) – Allen Ginsberg
  • The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test (Non-Fiction) – Tom Wolfe
  • Easy Rider (Movie) – Written by Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper and Terry Southern, Directed by Dennis Hopper

Also the following recordings by Charlie Parker:

  • Billie’s Bounce
  • Now’s The Time
  • Ko-Ko
  • Moose The Mooche
  • Yardbird Suite
  • Ornithology
  • A Night In Tunisia
  • Scrapple From The Apple
  • Parker’s Mood
  • Just Friends
  • Summertime

I’ll be posting thoughts, observations and links on these works, with the occasional diversion into general cultural matters, until the next meeting of the Culture Club on 28th June, 2007.
