The Rev. Hell Gets Confused

Amazingly enough, it took me this long to get one of those dealies that lets you record analog media on your computer. The turntable isn’t working, so I am starting with the cassettes.

The first thing I digitized is a spoken-word bit by Richard Hell called “The Rev. Hell Gets Confused.” This was on one of those Giorno Poetry Systems records and I used to play it on my radio show at KZSC in Santa Cruz, way back in…well, er, you know…back then.

The record belonged to the radio station and I’ve never seen another copy anywhere, nor has it ever appeared in digital form before so far as I’m aware. More to the point, it is freaking hilarious, so go ahead and click on the word “Play” below to hear it.

PARENTAL ADVISORY: Contains many naughty words.
