The San Francisco poetry renaissance of the late 50’s/early 60’s became known as the The Beat Generation. Bohemian beatniks, they changed the face of literature. Kerouac, Ginsberg and Burroughs the Godfathers of cool. Titans all.
What do we get here in Britain?
Bloody Max Bygraves.
But fear not, dear readers - as this track (uploaded exclusively for MC) from Max’s album Fairy Tales for Grown-Ups shows we can be as hip as the Yanks. Oh yes.
Not only is this track quite genuinely funny it also ends with an atomic bomb going off.
