Spoken Word

This is a post about my new favourite thing - Spoken Word, which I have discovered since moving to London. I first heard of it through Scroobius Pip's work after liking his music with Dan le Sac.

It's performance poetry and watching it live is a really great experience.

Last night I went to Pure Groove to Kate Tempest's album launch and saw her and some other artists perform - including Scroobius Pip, David J and Polar Bear who all have their own styles.
It's always great to find new creative avenues and thought I'd share it with you. Next I want to go to a Poetry Slam - 8 mile style!

Hope you enjoy and if you do check out the other guys I mentioned

  1. Hey, this is really cool. I love the Streets but never looked in to spoken word stuff. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!
