Annexe Spoken Word Mixtape #1

Welcome to the first Annexe spoken word mixtape. Thanks to Tom Chivers of the fantastic Penned in the Margins, I had the opportunity to create a few of these spoken word/instrumental mixes for PitM events. At each event, people came up to me and gave such encouraging words that I thought it was about time to make a more permanent version. This will hopefully be the first of many.

 

 

It’s a blend of spoken word sourced primarily from the bottomless resource that is UBUweb, (though a couple aren’t so if you’d like direct links don’t hesitate to email us) and mainly instrumental music. It’s a very different process making these live, so i’m hoping the end product is still an enjoyable one. Please do let us know what you think.

Tracklist:
This City is Hell – Plaid
The Cure – William Carlos Williams
To Jack Kerouac – Ted Berrigan
Anonanimal (instrumental) – Andrew Bird
Excerpt from an Audio Walk – Janet Cardiff
Go Out and Love Something – Pogo
The Titanic – David Greenberger
Bug (Electric Last Minute) – Cornelius
Disconnected – Allen Ginsberg
African Orange – The Peppermint Lounge
Tomorrow Comes Today (instrumental) – Gorillaz
Instructions – Neil Gaiman

  1. I love this! The combination of some of the finest instrumentals and such a diverse array of spoken word pieces. I’d love to hear more of this, and will definitely ask for some swdj (spoken word dj) at my next part-ay.
    PS if you ever need any economic charged words, Lawn Boy by Gary Paulsen and read by Tom Parks is great. Paulsen has a brilliant turn of phrase, and Parks’ narration is hilarious.
