There is lots of spoken word on any Venom record if you spin it backwards....

WElcome to Hell has tons of stuff...

I've been listening the a lot ofLaughing Hands and this has led me back to listening to Paul Schütze.

I've had Second Site on all morning, it's basically incredibly evocative exotic gongs underpinning a woman with a very interesting voice who is reading descriptions of the architectural astronomical instuments at Jantar Mantar.

‎Paul Schütze ‎- Second Site: 27°37'35" N 77°13'05"

Death in Vegas - Consequences Of Love (Chris & Cosey Remix)with husky speaky speaky from former erotic performer Sasha Grey. Roll on tomorrow when I get this in my hot hands and give it the full big speaka and dance myself into delirium.

And the original if anyone is interested.

BP Fallon & David Holmes - Henry McCullough from the Late Night Tales: David Holmes.
I knew nothing about Henry McCullough, but I like how BP Fallon's voice sounds in the song.
Weatherall's remix is also great, you can hear it around 1:47:22 here or wait for RSD 2017 :-/

Coil - The Sea Priestess Just sheer beauty. The Prescription version was just re-pressed in tiny numbers but not as tiny as the original almost too precious to play 99 (often optimistically listed in the thousands on discogs). Last night I lay in the dark after everyone was in bed, flying high above as I listened.

Was a bit of dream to buy Christmas copies for two of my kids, another one for myself and one as a gift to my best Coil loving friend. Getting them required a lot of fast mouse action and screen refreshing as shops sold out in less than 5 minutes. It's a bit of shame they aren't pressing more because folk who I hope meet with their own Astral Disaster are selling them for several times the cover price on discogs.

A Seattle band by way of New Mexico and Oklahoma called Hypatia Lake has used a fair amount of spoken word on their record trilogy. Each record follows a chronological story line in 3 parts.

They Must Be Russians ‎– Don't Try To Cure Yourself I remember my father coming into my room circa 1980 and saying WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU AND THIS FILTH, I'M CALLING THE PRIEST. I'd not actually had sex at this age or sex education (ever) and I found it quite informative. :D

I realise I'm about 12 months late to the party but my vinyl copy of Sneaks - Gymnastics arrived today.
Spoken word, bass and drum machine, post punk, just what the weekend ordered.

I spent the afternoon reaquainting myself with It's Immaterial and had forgotten how good they were.

I guess not quite spoken, more somewhere between a heavily processed sultry whisper and singing, but I'm LOVING Virna Lindt - Underwater Boy. Some of the undersea lounge feel dripping through the instrumentation almost wouldn't sound out of place in the Connan Mockasin cannon.

Edit: ok not spoken word at all :D

It's good though!

Btw have you heard Grantby - The Beast System? I think you might like it.

back on the speaky spokey

Black Spider Clan - Keiner Kommt Hier Lebend Raus (with Beta Evers) more than a bit sexhey if stone cold Dominatrix vocals are your thing.

Coil - The Lost Rivers Of London flits between signing and spoken word but 100% genius.

Coil - Where are You? just destroys my head with it's brilliance. The Coil tracks with Rose seem to have such deep magick. Normally these re-contextualised fan videos are a bit shite^ but this one is really good with the music.

Setting myself back on course with Facit - Alan Turing

Laser-guided suggestion! You're right D, that's right up my alley. I think you posted that track elsewhere a couple moon phases back because I had it bookmarked for further listening. Many thanks for the reminder to follow up on it.

No argument from me.

Some classic minimal electronics;Neural Circus - Exit

and something newer in the same wheelhouseM I D D E X - SPACE SORRY There was only 70 of these but it's available on Various - The Polytechnic Youth Label "They Make No Say" | 45s on 33 which is a total bargain at a tenner (or less for the digitool)! This was a lathecut so the reissue is great from a practical point of view.
