NZ’s answer to William Shatner

Well, the part of William Shatner that makes ground breaking, genre-defining albums.

Anyway, check out Sam Hunt feat. SansAmp, from 2001.

The sad story is this is the only recorded ‘poetry’ reading I can find of Sam Hunt online. There is nothing of interest on YouTube, and the only other thing I can find are radio spots where he emphatically doesn’t read his own poetry.

In fact, it’s near-impossible to find written editions of his poems online, let alone what I’m looking for. And yes, I tried looking for the old Vogels ad, with no success.

Anyone have any ideas?

(As an aside, it’s quite funny listening to him on that radio show. He seems to employ the rolling vocal style he is most known for regardless of what he’s reading. I’ve never heard the blurb on the back of a book sound so much like poetry.)

    You might be interested to listen to The Front Lawn’s “How you doing”, which is also NZ spoken word to music. Can’t find a link though :-(

    Hmm.. I know the song you mean. I managed to find a probably somewhat dodgy copy of the album that contains the song.

    I’ve uploaded the song in question here.

    Is this theme… intentional?

    You know, just wondering… and stuff.

    I gather you don’t like it then.
