Daniel Kane: “Do You Have a Band?”. Poetry and Punk Rock in New York City

During the late 1960s, throughout the 1970s, and into the 1980s, New York City poets and musicians played together, published each other, and inspired one another to create groundbreaking art.

In “Do You Have a Band?”, Daniel Kane reads deeply across poetry and punk music to capture this compelling exchange and its challenge to the status of the visionary artist, the cultural capital of poetry, and the lines dividing sung lyric from page-bound poem.

Kane reveals how the new sounds of proto-punk and punk music found their way into the poetry of the 1960s and 1970s downtown scene, enabling writers to develop fresh ideas for their own poetics and performance styles. Likewise, groups like The Fugs and the Velvet Underground drew on writers as varied as William Blake and Delmore Schwartz for their lyrics. Drawing on a range of archival materials and oral interviews, Kane also shows how and why punk musicians drew on and resisted French Symbolist writing, the vatic resonance of the Beat chant, and, most surprisingly and complexly, the New York Schools of poetry. In bringing together the music and writing of Richard Hell, Patti Smith, and Jim Carroll with readings of poetry by Anne Waldman, Eileen Myles, Ted Berrigan, John Giorno, and Dennis Cooper, Kane provides a fascinating history of this crucial period in postwar American culture and the cultural life of New York City.

Daniel Kane is reader in English and American literature at the University of Sussex in Brighton. His books include We Saw the Light: Conversations Between the New American Cinema and Poetry (2009) and All Poets Welcome: The Lower East Side Poetry Scene in the 1960s (2003).

PATTI SMITH SIGNS HER NEW MEMOIR: M TRAIN, IN AMSTERDAM

SMITH_MTRAINPatti Smith signs her new book M Train at the American Book Center
ABC Amsterdam – Saturday, October 24, 12.00
Patti Smith returns to ABC to sign her new memoir M Train and the updated Collected Lyrics, 1970-2015 on Saturday, October 24th.

When Patti Smith signed at The American Book Center (ABC) in 2012, fans waited around the corner, outside on the Spui, to have their books signed, so  Patti Smith has agreed to come back to promote her new memoir M Train. Patti will start signing at 12.00. She has to leave at 14.00 sharp for her soundcheck at Tivoli-Vredenburg in Utrecht, where she will be performing that evening.

To make sure that Patti is able to sign your copy of M Train: please make a RESERVATION at abc.nl/events.

Patti Smith’s previous memoir Just Kids (published in 2010) received the National Book Award for best non-fiction and in August Showtime announced that they will be developing a series based on Just Kids.

M Train, will present, what her publisher has described, as a journey through 18 “stations,” as she writes about various turning points in her life. The memoir, which is due out October 6th, will also contain black-and-white Polaroids that the singer-songwriter took herself.

M Train and the updated Collected Lyrics, 1970-2015 will be available at ABC in various editions from October 6th onward.

More about M Train:
From the National Book Award–winning author of Just Kids: an unforgettable odyssey of a legendary artist, told through the prism of the cafés and haunts she has worked in around the world. It is a book Patti Smith has described as “a roadmap to my life.”

SMITHPATTI_LYRICSM Train begins in the tiny Greenwich Village café where Smith goes every morning for black coffee, ruminates on the world as it is and the world as it was, and writes in her notebook. Through prose that shifts fluidly between dreams and reality, past and present, and across a landscape of creative aspirations and inspirations, we travel to Frida Kahlo’s Casa Azul in Mexico; to a meeting of an Arctic explorer’s society in Berlin; to a ramshackle seaside bungalow in New York’s Far Rockaway that Smith acquires just before Hurricane Sandy hits; and to the graves of Genet, Plath, Rimbaud, and Mishima.

Woven throughout are reflections on the writer’s craft and on artistic creation. Here, too, are singular memories of Smith’s life in Michigan and the irremediable loss of her husband, Fred Sonic Smith.

Braiding despair with hope and consolation, illustrated with her signature Polaroids, M Train is a meditation on travel, detective shows, literature, and coffee. It is a powerful, deeply moving book by one of the most remarkable multiplatform artists at work today.
