Bureau Of Lost Culture – Days In The Life + The Language of Counterculture (01/11/2020)
Chick.Trip. Dope, Pad. Heavy. Cool. Scene. Man. Beat. Freak. Weed. Bang. Square. Blast. Cat. Gas!
In an action packed episode, we spend a Soho afternoon with ‘Mr Slang’ Jonathon Green on his amazing life in the counterculture, writing for Rolling Stone and the underground press and his ground breaking catalogue of the counterculture: ‘Days in the Life: Voices from the English Underground’.
Jonathon is our foremost lexicographer of slang so we take a deep dive into the world of countercultural language, explore where all those hippie and beatnik words came from and discover along the way why ‘Fuck’ is not in fact a rude word.
