One fast move or I'm gone : Kerouac's Big Sur( Visual )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jack Kerouac was a literary rock star, lionized by his fans. He was called the avatar of the Beat Movement, a new voice of his generation. But along with sudden fame and media hype came his unraveling. The film takes us back to the cabin he retreated to in the Big Sur woods, the Beat haunts of San Francisco and New York City for an unflinching look at the compeling events his book is based on. The story unfolds through Kerouac's prose, first hand recollections from Kerouac's contemporaries, as well as writers, poets, actors and musicians who have been deeply influenced by Kerouac's unique gifts. The visual imagery is set to original music composed and performed by recording artists Jay Farrrar of Son Volt and Benjamin Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before the Internet made sourcing new music and rising bands a simple matter of keystrokes and RSS feeds, there was the radio DJ. Those with an insatiable thirst for the fresh and undiscovered relied on the savvy DJ with the right connections to feed us a steady diet of the up and coming. For the bands, it was said DJ who provided the air-time, created the buzz and could ultimately set the stage for stardom. No one epitomized this role like Marco Collins. He was the on-off switch for an artist's potential career and was the gatekeeper credited for helping break the likes of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Beck, Weezer, Garbage and countless others
