Charles Bukowski ‎– "70 Minutes In Hell" (Chinaski Records ‎– BUK02CD) 2003/1977

One poet forward slash,raconteur, I can't get enough of is Charles Bukowski, who is such a misrable fucker that he makes me look like Ronald McDonald.
His slow motion apathy is as infectious as a dose of Malaria......i was gonna say thrush,but thats sooo yeasterday.
The black comedy of these readings can go over the head of persons who laugh at clowns,who are fucking weird anyway so who cares? Humour is an essential quality when faced with the sheer horror of existence,and especially when staring in the face of the grim reaper or the ferryman on the banks of the river Styx. The underworld is on both sides of the river. Bukowski is underwhelmed and he doesn't particularly care who knows it. The bard of drunken indifference.

This is the CD version of the original 90 minutes in Hell double album, but it now has 102 minutes of Hell on the file,after I added a few missing tracks.So we have extended the torture for y'all.Enjoy.

Hank's always a good person to spend time with 'Born Into This' as we all are.. "That's Bukowshi, pronounced 'Puke-Cow-ski'"

THANKS!!! love Bukowski, read all his books way back in the 80's, though vastly different, in writing as in person there was always a "Vonnegutian" feeling when I was reading him, weird...
