"Do You Have a Band?"

Daniel Kane

Columbia University Press

Reminiscing about the Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church, Victor Bockris effused “In those days [the early 1970s] the St Mark’s Poetry Project was on a par with Warhol’s Factory, Mickey Ruskin’s Max’s Kansas City and the Gotham Book Mart as a bastion of the influential underground art movements that were the emotional engines of New York.” This chapter explores what lured so many musicians to the Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church, and analyzes how the writing performed on the pulpit at St. Mark’s and recorded in associated mimeograph magazines and LPs proved so attractive to Sanders, Reed, Smith, Hell and others.

Keywords:   The Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church, Anne Waldman, Ted Berrigan, Angel Hair Magazine, proto-punk, Second Generation New York School
