Mohawk; John Sinclair

John Sinclair – “Mohawk” CD

John Sinclair, the renegade poet, scholar and cultural revolutionary released his new album. John Sinclair has been described as an archetype of the 1960′s art, music and literary synthesis. Today John is still kicking with both feet on his trajectory for cultural transformation. His new record features ten tracks from his book of verse: always know: a book of monk. Twenty poems planted firmly in a single-shot session, and carefully trimmed down to ten exhibits for this album. Beatnik poems, great odes and personal reflections of the Be-Bop jazz persuasion, all flowering together.
