    Max Decharne started out as the Gallon Drunk drummer before graduating to lead singer of the Flaming Stars. He is also an author and journalist forMojo and Bizarre. He currently divides his time between London and Berlin.
    Righteous jive for all you weedheads, moochers, b-girls, gassers, bandrats, triggermen, grifters, snowbirds, and long-gone daddies.

    Much of the slang popularly associated with the hippie generation of the 1960s actually dates back to before World War II, hijacked in the main from jazz and blues street expressions, mostly relating to drugs, sex, and drinking. Why talk when you can beat your chops, why eat when you can line your flue, and why snore when you can call some hogs? You’re not drunk–you’re just plumb full of stagger juice, and your skin isn’t pasty, it’s just caf? sunburn. Need a black coffee? That’s a shot of java, nix on the moo juice.

    Containing thousands of examples of hipster slang drawn from pulp novels, classic noir and exploitation films, blues, country, and rock ’n’ roll lyrics, and other related sources from the 1920s to the 1960s,Straight from the Fridge, Dad is the perfect guide for all hep cats and kittens. Think of it as a sort ofThirty Days to a More Powerful Vocabulary for the beret-wearing, bongo-banging set. Solid, Jackson.
