Yet another cool collaboration that I have been listening to and forgetting to post about is the Jack Kerouac inspired pairing of Jay Farrar and Ben Gibbard. Two great songwriters, brought together by their love of the Kerouac's writing, recorded an album for the documentary One Fast Move or I'm Gone: Kerouac's Big Sur. Need I say more? It's an awesome project and one you should most definitely check out if you are a fan of either artist or Mr. Kerouac.
Now, the obligatory quote,followed by a song from the record:
The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say commonplace things but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the centerlight pop and everybody goes "AWWWW!!! - Jack Kerouac
