PETER MARTI & MARC OLMSTED
INTERVIEW BY JULIE ADLER
Allen's Dharma pal poet friend Marc Olmsted sent us this 2008 interview with him and poet Peter Marti by producer/painter/performer Julie Adler & we can't thank him enough. This one really gets inside Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche's influence on their poetry & lives as well as Allen's.
It ends with a genius version of Allen doing his poem "Birdbrain" backed by Olmsted's band, The Job. Recorded at On Broadway in North Beach, San Francisco, (directly above the legendary punk club, Mabuhay Gardens) in 1981, this take is completely different from the more familiar release with the Glu-ons, & seriously off the chain!
