Now RS is not always right, any more than a penis is always called a Hampton Wick, but I haven’t often come across a group that were so together that they could make that scene. Probably the M C5 are near it. I had to go to sleep in their hotel after Elektra had had to ring me up to get Rob Tyner to a conference, and they slept two to a room with the doors open and everyone walked through. I found out I really really liked being able to hear other people balling close to me while I was, and I was very pleased; you see, the group fuck is the highest ritual expression of our faith, but it must happen as a sort of special grace.

If you sit a man with a bucket on his head and let a water tap drip on to it, he’ll be crazy within hours. The Japanese taught some Australians that. Music has charms to soothe a savage breast, as Con­ greve noticed. Music hath alarums to wild the civil breast as well, as Tuli Kupferberg pointed out. It is partly a matter of the mode of music, but then as well, something to do with the ears the music exists in. He that has ears to hear, let him hear. The bell tolling in the desert makes no sound.

Protected from the knowledge of her husband’s promiscuity and the lunatic fringes of his sexuality. The scrubbers suffered all his aggression, all his! loneliness and self-doubt. The jazz musicians had a different scene. They; toured less often and less spectacularly and played to a discriminating! clientele that came to listen. They were deep into their music, and so perforce were their women. Marriage was not common, but monogamji was the rule. It was a hard life for the birds, because they never went out at night except to listen to the old man’s sets.
