>Laki Vazakas’s videos: Herbert Huncke, Charlie Plymell, Mary Beach and more

>Laki Vazakas, has been posting his videos of the last 17 years that feature some of the beat generation’s great unsung heroes & we can’t thank him enough. There just isn’t enough footage of any of these colorful personalities, so we jump at ever chance we get to see & hear them. Included in this pantheon are Herbert Huncke, Mary Beach (collagist, translator, editor, wife of Claude Pelieu and so much more) Charles Plymell (old friend of Allen’s since they roomed together with Neal Cassady in 1963), and that’s just for starters. We’ll get you going with Herbert Huncke at Cafe Nico, NYC in 1994.

And an interview with Mary Beach….

And Janine Pommy Vega, poet friend of Allen & Peter since 1960, reading her poem ‘Across the Table’ at the Bowery Poetry Club, September 2003.
