The original title for this was “Echoes from the Cave.” That’s an idea – I guess a bit of a cliché – that I’ve wanted to use for a short story, novel, or maybe a song.
Well, time has passed and that seems a bit passé.. at least for me. So I decided to call this “Beatniks,” mostly because of the jangley, slightly futuristic beats behind the voices. And I’m listening to a lot of primitive, beatnik jazz these days.
“Beatniks” is dedicated to Prince, who passed on around the time I began this.
