One thought on “Books I Recommend”

  1. Your wrote Speed /Kentucky Ham twice! That being said I have read most of those books. I’m a Burroughs freak myself althought I would have surely have added some Bukovsky in there and and maybe a few bio like Please Kill Me by Legs Mc Neil and Gillian Mc Cain and Inside Joy Division by Peter Hook. IMO the best Burroughs you can read is Cities of the Red Night but its just my opinion. I am now reeading Popism by Andy Wathol and I love it. I love everything surrounding Velvet Underground and The Factory (NY not UK, well both actually!). Kerouac is a must of course!! Did you know about The Merry Pranksters who drove around in a bus driven by Neal Cassady? There is a movie that was edited out of the 30 hours of footage they made in the early 2000 that is very interesting. I made a ost about it not long ago…. Anyways I see we have very common interests and I wouldn’t be suprised if you already have seen and read all of this I just mentioned. I will for sure dig in you blog further more. I love your tastes!
