Beanpole is the name of three bands:
1) All My Kin is the strange and somewhat unbelievable album by an artist called Beanpole. “Starving artist” must have been their mode of recording as stories of farming, eating, and disfigured animal-human hybrids course throughout the record. Very little is known about Beanpole, but it is widely recognized by collectors that most of the music originated from the late 1980s and early 1990s. Some sources maintain Beanpole is still active, although evidence remains unsubstantiated.
Primus’ Les Claypool claims he attempted to release a decade’s worth of Beanpole recordings on his Prawn Song label in the ‘90s. We’re told that the tracks were delivered to the mastering studio on worn-out cassette tapes and dusty DATs. As legend has it, when Claypool played the mastered tracks to his distributor, the response from company executives was poor. As a result, Claypool was summarily dismissed from his business relationship with the distribution company, effectively ending his label. For nearly 20 years thereafter, the tracks were to remain forgotten.
Fast forward to 2017 when Claypool was touring with Sean Lennon as The Claypool Lennon Delirium. Les played the old, neglected recordings to Sean, who decided that the world was finally ready for Beanpole!
2) Verna Brock's solo work from the 1990s, including the songs:
* I'd Know You Anywhere
* Now I know
3) The Memphis alternative band described below:
From the Beanpole Myspace page:
Beanpole was created in the summer of 1992 in a two-car garage in Memphis, Tennessee. Wes Mims, Barry Spicer, and Ryan Paule began writing bits and pieces of songs that years later would become the contents of their debut album "Jelly Filled" and their sophomore release titled "Oba Na Men".
For those unfamiliar with the band, which has been a presence on the local music scene for several years, they play pretty straightforward, mainstream rock with occasional roots flourishes.
