Dan McCarthy has appreciated the work of Hunter S. Thompson for many years. This inspired Dan to find a way to musicalize Thompsons words. The result is Some Jaded, Atavistic Freakout, a jazz concept album that is unique both in terms of how the music was composed, working with a cypher which Dan developed and discusses in the interview, and the experience it offers.

Hunter S. Thompsons thinking offers perspectives on society that are as applicable today as when they were first written, if not more so. Here are some quotations from Hunter S. Thompson, great to read while listening to this music!
