Anyone have any recommendations for some good spoken word?
Mitch Hedberg's album. "Strategic Grill Locations", it even has bass accompaniment!
I haven't heard a whole album of hers, but I'm a big fan of Ursula Rucker's poetry. You might know her from the intro and end tracks from all the Roots albums.
One word: Henry Rollins.
Saul Williams has some good stuff, some of it is to music, some not.
Velvet Underground- White Light, White Heat.
Jello Biafra-"I blow minds for a living"
...if you are looking for comedy-any George Carlin(I saw him in concert a while ago...) The new Lenny Bruce box set...if you don't mind spending $80...
Try some Gil Scott-Heron.
+1 for Henry Rollins. I saw his live spoken word performance earlier this year. Witty, intelligent and thought-provoking.
All the Bill Hicks CDs, concerts, DVDs etc etc - the man is a God.
Also if you haven't been listening to it on Radio 4, when they were playing it recently, but the original Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy is just brilliant - great cast and great realisation, it's one you'll happily listen to again and again.
If you've never heard of it go here for all the info you'll ever need:
- if you haven't read the books by Douglas Adams (RIP) I suggest you get acquianted with them, they're excellent as well.
Absolutely brilliant, IMO.
I'll check these out, thanks!
