yho17 - ... foundland

The seventeenth edition of YHO was a celebration of Saint Jack by The Nectarine No. 9.  Originally released in 1995 by Postcard Records of Scotland, after many years out of circulation, it was made available on We Can Still Picnic, the digital imprint of the Creeping Bent Organisation.  It seemed like a fun idea to put together something that caught the spirit of what Davy Henderson and his gang were doing on that record.  The cover was an old photo of the Nectarine No. 9 brothel in Yokohama.  As for the title?  Where Frownland meets Poundland, perhaps?
There’s quite a lot of quotes and lyrics cut up and scattered throughout this short booklet.  Among those unwittingly contributing are:
Ø  Alan Horne
Ø  Jack Kerouac
Ø  Fran Landesman
Ø  Terry Southern
Ø  Peter Meaden
Ø  Vic Godard
Ø  Screamin’ Jay Hawkins
Ø  Barry Gifford
Ø  Nick Tosches
Ø  Allen Ginsberg
