George Melly - Sounds That Saved My Life

George Melly was great: a gaudy anarchist arts critic, well known for being a former jazz musician. Of course, Melly's jazz was not the sort of thing you'd come to Doklands to listen to. He was part of the UK trad revival, and we'll have none of that sort of thing round here, thank you. But Sounds That Saved My Life? That's a different kettle of rockinghorses. Taken from the famous Miniatures compilation, this is a minute of prime Dadaist sound poetry, in a Kurt Schwitters/Raoul Hausmann/Hugo Ball style. UWWW-aaah prosSET? Gadge neely neely neely neely WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.
