HIT CD cover Heaving In Tongues -

Documenting the San Francisco spoken word band scene that was over far sooner than anyone realized, Heaving In Tongues contains material from 99 Hooker (of Bible Launcher fame), Asbestos Removal Crew, the Bohipniks, and LX Rudis.

More spoken word than improv music, Heaving In Tongues contains styles ranging from electronic bebop to heavy metal oratory, from the dry dark humour of Asbestos Removal Crew to the urban droll-viality of the Bohipniks.


"The sort of poetry the Beats made popular, but with a post-fusion jazz attack and a poetry that wears its many post-beat influences like tatoos."

- Stephen Ronan, KPFA
