The Albion Beatnik Bookstore website (or how a bookshop once changed a light bulb)

The web page of the Albion Beatnik Bookstore in Oxford, now closed (as usual) for business: muses and misspills on books, jazz, poetry, stuff like false flags and smoke screen: was randomly decrepit and proven to be more than neo-bankrupt: it was so analogue it was anal and now deceased.

Description

EXTRACT (from the preface)

“In music, a ghost note is a musical note with a rhythmic value, but no discernable pitch when played. It is a subtle, subliminal percussive kick or short note, never notated in the score. In jazz it is often played in between the quarter note pulse in a random fashion.

A ghost is the soul or spirit of a dead person, that haunts particular locations or people they were associated with in life, that can appear – in visible form or other manifestation – to the living.”
