One Fast Move or I'm Gone: Kerouac's Big Sur is an album by Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie) and Jay Farrar (Son Volt), released in 2009. The lyrics are based on the prose of Jack Kerouac's novel Big Sur (1962). One Fast Move or I'm Gone was a result of Gibbard's and Farrar's mutual appreciation for Kerouac's work while recording several songs for a feature-length documentary of the same name.[2]
