So, while casually working in the shop last week the guys in charge got into a discussion on their favorite ye olde time spoken word acts, these are the highlights. I like to think that the “singer” from cake grew up listening to these songs.

Detachable Penis – King Missile

Make sure to keep an ear out for the haunting “detachable penis” vamp that goes on throughout this masterpiece

88 Lines About 44 Women – The Nails

I like the minimal instrumentation, also known as some talking, some humming, and a wonderfully 80s synth drum beat.

Take Stuff From Work – King Missile

I was a little bit saddened that I couldn’t find out about a third classic spoken word artist, but whatever, this song is weird as hell too.
