    Default Spoken Vocals

    Can anyone recommend me any great records with spoken vocals? Especially if they are fast. Am thinking Flying Lizards and the very great Art Interface (as featured on my swap).

    Thanks.

    William S. Burroughs & Gus Van Sant

    Came out on a 7" on the SOL label b/w "The Hipster Bebop Junkies"

    The album he did with The Disposable Heroes Of Hiphoprisy is pretty good as well.

    When you hear music, after itís over, itís gone, in the air, you can never capture it again.

    I have posted this up before, but I think it fits right in here (well...as much as it fits in anywhere).

    Nice on indeed el sporto and thanks for all these, most of which are new on me. Had no idea about Deborah and the Peurto Ricans.

    Have seen the Dirk Bogarde LP a few times here. Will investigate.

    Not fast, but similar to Burroughs - who she worked with - I really like Leslie Winer who made a sort of precursor to Trip Album called "Witch", as (c), as in the copyright symbol, from the late 80's and just recently had an e.p. out as Purity Supreme: http://www.ashinternational.com/edit...s_already.html Lots on her YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRf86...ure=plpp_video

    The B side is much better on that, Dennis Bovell craziness.

    More here in this Mick Sinclair interview with Deborah.

    The flip side of the single is tongue-twistingly titled 'Side A Side B Side'. It contains a light weight disco-funk carrier upon which Deborah conducts a phone conversation and cops an exchange exploding with, a plethora of crossed lines. She confides a keenness for radio phone ins (she'll go blind!) and likens them to the Warhol concept of everybody enjoying fame for a brief time.
    Sounds as if it would go well with the Reginald Bousinquat above.

    She also reveals that she was/is a poet (anyone know more?) and discusses Dennis Bovell's interesting production techniques:

    “He did say I recited the words to 'Respect' with no feeling or meaning so he pretended he was going to rape me. Only at the last minute did he tell me that he wasn't. We used the vocal take we did immediately after that.
    !!
