|"If Fellini, Dali and Captain Kangaroo got together in their teens and
ate peyote, this is the album they would have recorded."- Les Claypool
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’s All My Kin is a concept album for post-modern
America. It chronicles the epic tale of Chicken Boy and his
dangerously interrelated family. Years of isolation have resulted
in the birth of a child who is part man and part poultry. Despite
obvious adoration for their uniquely feathered offspring, having
fallen upon hard times they consider the unthinkable: will
Chicken Boy be sacrificed to feed his hungry family?”
— Sean Lennon
