Quiet Sun - Mainstream - 1975August 16, 2008 - Also sprach an eli eli lamma lamma sabacthani Freekick!

Allen Ginsberg said it best in his epic poem Howl:

to recreate the syntax and measure of poor human prose and stand before you speechless and intelligent and shaking with shame, rejected yet confessing out the soul to conform to the rhythm of thought in his naked and endless head, the madman bum and angel beat in Time, unknown, yet putting down here what might be left to say in time come after death, and rose reincarnate in the ghostly clothes of jazz in the goldhorn shadow of the band and blew the suffering of America's naked mind for love into an eli eli lamma lamma sabacthani saxophone cry that shivered the cities down to the last radio with the absolute heart of the poem of life butchered out of their own bodies good to eat a thousand years."

But did you hear the radio show yet? You had to have heard, or you need to hear Girl Talk, Mark Ronson, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Sun Ra, Eumir Deodato, Isaac Hayes, Far Corner, Quiet Sun, Balkan Journeys, Jaipur Kawa Brass Band, Pascal Comelade, Les Charbonniers de l'enfer, Ken Nordine, Harry Belafonte, The Jolly Boys, The Specials, Bob Marley & the Wailers, The Slits, Madness, The Unsettlers, Spinal Tap, Richard Cheese, Frank Zappa & The Mothers, SRC, Simply Saucer, Holy Fuck, Peaches, 999, and Legion of Green Men all mixed up in the same two hours.

Get 'em while they're hot:
Next week's Freekick radio show is Saturday, August 30 from around 9 to 11 PM eastern on CKUT 90.3 fm. Don't miss it, Shawn is flying solo once again - be there or be where?! In the meanwhile, check out these cool vids from the Freekick Video Lounge!
Food for thought...
