Beanpole Announce Unreleased LP + Share Track On Rolling Stone | All My Kin Out 8/31 On Sean Lennon’s Chimera Music | Mysterious Lost 1980s Recording Includes Members Of Primus
LISTEN & SHARE: Beanpole – “Farmer Loved An Onion”
Rolling Stone has announced Beanpole’s unreleased LP and shared the single “Farmer Loved An Onion”. The LP, ‘All My Kin’, which features members of Primus and Spent Poets, will be out 8/31 on Chimera Music.
When speaking about the song, guitarist Larry LaLonde says, “To get the vibe of recording a Beanpole song, you have to place yourself in a secluded farm valley full of mutant hillbillies trying to recreate melodies that were found on a broken record of Disneyland ride music.”
As for the album, Chimera Music’s Sean Lennon states, “It’s a concept album for post-modern America. It chronicles the epic tale of Chicken Boy and his dangerously interrelated family. Years of isolation have resulted in the birth of a child who is part man and part poultry. Despite obvious adoration for their uniquely feathered offspring, having fallen upon hard times they consider the unthinkable: will Chicken Boy be sacrificed to feed his hungry family?” Bassist Les Claypool adds, “If Fellini, Dali, and Captain Kangaroo got together in their teens and ate peyote, this is the album they would have recorded.”
