Charles Manson

Insane kult leader, or misunderstood beatnik prophet that found a voice with some impressionable hippies? Frankly, we don't care. Anyone that abandons society to go live in the desert in a western movie set while dispensing hallucinogens and convincing said impressionable hippies that a great war is coming is OK in our books.
Prior to his trips into town with the traveling abortion clinic family, he was a musician that got bitter that no one signed him. Imagine if punk's DIY aesthetic had existed then? He probably would be the GG Allin of the 60s and 70s. But that's life... So instead he made like the Blues Brothers and rocked the prison system. Xul gives a special listening treat, a collection of many of his albums here. Be sure to take drugs when listening to the spoken word, see what difference you can make in the world.
