Incendiary bebop beauty from the renegade poet John Sinclair. Bohemian ex-manager of the MC5, Sinclair was central to 1960s counterculture. A year or two back, he met producer Youth and got dragged into the 21st century. The result is a hypnotic celebration of personal freedom; laid-back thoughts spoken in John Sinclair's gruff, grainy drawl, draped against blues, bebop and trip-hop. "Do It", with its lonesome sax, echoes Paddy McAloon's intimate I Trawl The Megahertz (2003): "In those days, to make poetry and art... that wasn't called for. But you did it, even though you knew you would never get paid..." "Brilliant Corners" is a wild tribute to Jack Kerouac, and "Sitarrtha" offers, "If we're lucky, music will bring us through, and we'll wake up singing." What a dude. Hand drawn cover artwork by Youth.
