    They sounded more 60ish than what I posted and folksy or something, like they had something to say. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give them a solid B.

    @Baden gets a C-, like always.

    I would have thought you'd go for the always-in-demand kazoo d'amore--the kazoo of love--as necessary in a Italian Punk band as the viola d'amore was to a Rococo band. The viola d'amore had sympathetic strings that really cared. The kazoo d'amore is sympathetic too -- it has pity on those who have to listen to it.

    You nailed their decade -- Mendocino was written in 1968. I still think they share a certain, hmm, Je ne sais quoi.

    Here is a fine lieder first performed by Elton Motello. I think this arrangement and performance by The Damned is more distinguished and elegant.

    Guess the date?

    I didn't Google it, but I'm going with 1974 based upon the punk sound.

    Now I'll check...

    It was 77. I almost said 75, which would have been closer, but I went earlier because it sounded more old school than the 80s, but I call my guess pretty close.

    I've been listening to a lot of punk lately actually.

    Perhaps it's a giveaway that the article uses the word "zillion." Everyone knows the correct word is "bazillion."

    I hope this doesn’t mean you’re abandoning beatnikism.

    Your brain is a balloon being pulled along by an empty skateboard.
    It's always downhill until your wheels land in the bay.
    And now you're a balloon tied to something sinking as it's carried along by the currents, further and further out to sea.
    When you washed up on the shore in China, a child picked up your brain and ran screaming.

    I always enjoyed the imagination in literature among the friends in this forum. I don't want to swim so deep in your thoughts on why you wrote that. Nonetheless, I want to highlight two aspects:
    How you compared the brain with a balloon (interesting, indeed) and how is pulled along by different factors or scenarios.

    On the other hand, may I ask you why did you choose China in your story?

    So I looked up the sort of music a beatnik might listen to and it was cool jazz, so combining that with punk, I arrived at jazz punk, which turns out is a thing: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punk_jazz

    A leading band of that genre is:James Chance and the Contortions.

    And this is a sample of that, which is all I listen to these days. It is my exclusive jam, and I have this condescending dickish hipster attitude to those who disagree. Sorry daddy-o, it's who I am these days.

    Not my expertise. Ask me about 80s and 90s thrash and death metal, and maybe.

    Haha, NO! It’s made with fancy-ass Italian flour. Most folks probably couldn’t tell it’s gluten-free.
