The Heart of Rock and Soul # 703 The Surfaris

'I saw the best minds of my generation laughing maniacally, drumming for hours on study hall desktops with fingers and pencils, eraser-end upward, not giving a good goddamn whether this was the first version the Surfaris recorded, much less whether it was actually composed by someone named Merrell Funkhauser, knowing only that this beat was the craziest sound they'd ever heard and desperately needing to participate, digging into the groove.

I should add that I also saw the best minds of my generation sentenced to detention for those very same things.'
