As we’ve reported, Son Volt’s Jay Farrar and Death Cab for Cutie’s Benjamin Gibbard have recorded an album that pays tribute to Jack Keroauc and his book Big Sur. That disc, One Fast Move Or I’m Gone: Kerouac’s Big Sur, is set for an October 20 release and will come packaged with a documentary film that will include appearances by such artists as: Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Sam Shepard, Patti Smith and Tom Waits. In addition, Farrar and Gibbard have announced that they will perform four shows to celebrate the release of One Fast Move Or I’m Gone (the shows also will mark 40 years since Kerouac passed away on October 21, 1969). The two will be joined on these dates by Nick Harmer (Death Cab for Cutie), Mark Spencer (Son Volt) and Jon Wurster (Superchunk, Bob Mould, The Mountain Goats).
