John Sinclair, the renegade poet, scholar and cultural revolutionary releases his new album on Monday 24th March 2014.

His new record features ten tracks from his book of verse: always know: a book of monk. Twenty poems planted firmly in a single-shot session, and carefully trimmed down to ten exhibits for this album. Beatnik poems, great odes and personal reflections of the Be-Bop jazz persuasion, all flowering together.
