spoken word

Ask Katy

Hi Katy. I'd like to ask Simon if there are any recordings stored in a hermetically sealed vault somewhere of his spoken word poetry circa 1988? I've got a really rare 3" CD single of "Do You Believe In Shame" that contains two B-side tracks of his narrative poetry - "God," and "This Is How A Road Gets Made." Also, could Simon talk a little bit about where and why those tracks were recorded and if he plans on doing anything along those lines in the future. Many thanks. - Joseph

"Ha, both the recordings you mentioned were recorded for the intro to our live "BIG thing" shows. They probably got chucked on the B-sides in question when it was realised that we didn't have any unreleased music to use. S"
