About the Author:

Charles Plymell (born April 26, 1935, in Holcomb, Kansas) is a poet, novelist, and small press publisher. Plymell has been published widely, collaborated with, and published many poets, writers, and artists, including principals of the Beat Generation. He has published, printed, and designed many underground magazines and books with his wife Pamela Beach, a namesake in avant-garde publishing. He published former prisoner Ray Bremser and Herbert Huncke, whom he identified with from the hipster 1950s. He was influential in the underground comix scene, first printing Zap Comix artists such as Robert Crumb and S. Clay Wilson, whom he first published in Lawrence, Kansas. Returning to Wichita he became a hipster, taking peyote, marijuana and benzedrine, the drugs of the day. He listened to jazz, R&B and “Race music,” across the tracks in Wichita. He worked at factories and took courses at Wichita State University. Allen Ginsberg credited him with creating the Wichita Vortex. His influences are Hart Crane, Ezra Pound, and Coleridge. He did not meet the Beats until 1963. Before that he considered himself a hipster and outsider. Plymell lived in a famous flat 1403 Gough St. It was there at Plymell’s LSD party that the Beats met the Hippies. Promptly Allen Ginsberg and Neal Cassidy moved in with him where Plymell played Bob Dylan to Ginsberg for the first time. Gallery where fellow Wichitans Bob Branaman and Bruce Conner had shown. Charley Douglass Plymell was born in Finney County, Kansas during the worst dust storms of that time. He was born in a converted chicken coop near Holcomb. Like many, his face was covered by wet rags as his mother went out to shoot jackrabbits and gather cactus for meals. He published and printed underground magazines and books with his wife Pamela Beach, a namesake in avant-garde publishing. He published Ray Bremser and Herbert Huncke, whom he identified with from the hipster 1950s. He was influential in the underground comix scene, first printing and designing with Zap Comix artists such as Robert Crumb and S. Clay Wilson. Recently Plymell’s book Benzedrine Highway was published by Norton Records/Kicks Books. He has been writing poems used as songs by Andrea Schroeder (Berlin); Mike Watt & Sam Dook (U.K.) They recently featured one of his songs on their CUZ tour. He has a book with his poems for Neal Cassady and Bob Branaman sung Rockabilly by Bloodshot Bill of Norton Records.
