New from Counter Culture Chronicles:
American writer and poet Steve Dalachinsky was born in Brooklyn in 1946. Taking inspiration from both the Beat Generation and improvisational music, Dalachinsky performed and recorded with musicians such as Jim O’Rourke, Susie Ibarra, Thurston Moore and Frederico Ughi. Many of Dalachinsky’s poems were written while listening to music and in his collaborations with musicians Dalachinsky attempted to give his poems back to music in sound and rhythm. Shortly before Dalachinsky passed away unexpectedly in September 2019, Counter Culture Chronicles released a split cassette of readings of his and his wife Yuko Otomo. Homages was the title of this cassette, which has now sadly turned into a salute of CCC’s René van der Voort to his dear lost friend.
