Songs About People # 206 Herbert Huncke

'You know my name is Herbert Huncke. A poet bum, a majestic junkie..'

Tribute to a founding figure and key mover with the Beat movement. Huncke can truly be said to have walked every inch of the walk as well as talking the talk as a cursory skim through his biography or listening to him talking or reading will make abundantly clear. The song from Comet Gain is suitably loose, defiant, atmospheric and snarling.
