Spoken Word - part 2 The Novel

After the short stories of the previous post we now move on to the full novel or at least the prologue. Spearmint often have spoken word tracks and this one sets the scene for the concept lp Paris in a Bottle

This opening track tells the story of two hitch - hiking buskers and the two girls they meet in Paris. They write their future life dreams on 4 different playing cards and the swap them. The rest of the lp picks up with the 4 characters years later as we see how their future's pan out compared to their drunken wishes. It is a great example where the spoken pieces are driven along by a great vocal melody

"Keep making first time music"
