Mick Farren is a proto-punk legend through his affiliation with Motorhead, Hawkwind, and the Pink Fairies, and as the leader of his own band, the Deviants. A noted journalist and author, Farren has long had a way with words, and THE DEATH RAY TAPES--recorded live in 1995--find him indulging his more literary inclinations via some spoken-word cosmic beat shenanigans. Farren is joined here by a cast of backing musicians including co-conspirator Jack Lancaster and former MC5 guitarist, Wayne Kramer.
