Album Notes
I’ll always remember where I was when I first saw The Irrational Library. It must have been 1963, during the Children’s Crusade in Alabama. Hundreds of kids took to the streets to protest segregation. The Irrational Library marched along with them (it was a brass band at the time). A year later the Civil Rights Act got passed.

Allen Ginsberg played with The Irrational Library for a while. On bongos. The Irrational Library was one of the very few things Malcolm X and Martin Luther King agreed on: it was the best white band on the planet. That naked woman on the famous PSP campaign poster of 1971? She’s dancing to The Irrational Library.

On Monday nights The Irrational Library goes to the roller skate disco in Haarlemtown. On Tuesday nights they read psychedelic poetry. On Wednesday nights they eat psychedelic poetry. On Thursday nights they fold really big origami swans that can actually fly. On Friday nights they play a secret concert in a secret venue for the secret agents of universal love. On Saturday Nights they play a concert for all the brothers and sisters, you know who you are.

On Sunday mornings The Irrational Library sleeps in and dreams about a better world. A world where The Irrational Library isn’t necessary. One day that world will come. And then The Irrational Library will play. Unnecessarily. Not being a dick about it. Nipple.
