The Albert Ayler Quintet outside Slug's Saloon
Daniel Beban who runs Wellington sound exploration space The Pyramid Club met a fascinating character recently, who once ran an establishment of his own – Slug's Saloon.
When Orchestra of Spheres played Golden Bay’s Mussel Inn, Beban got to talking to New York City native Jerry Schultz, now known as Gopal Krishna and resident in Onekaka, who it turns out opened Slug’s Saloon, an underground jazz club in New York that was once a hotspot of 60s counterculture and revolutionary jazz music.
So, the next time Beban was in Golden Bay, he took a recorder so he could get the history of Jerry Schultz – and the history of Slug’s – on tape.
