0012. Henry Rollins – Everything [1996]

1HCD02

This album is fantastic for those of you who enjoy dark spoken word poetry and avant-garde jazz.  I enjoy just about “everything,” Henry Rollins puts out.  (Hah, see what I did there?)  I love his books, his music, his radio & TV shows, his movie cameos, etc.  He’s prolific on a level that makes my fucking head spin.  I have some good memories of driving down the highway at night listening to this album.  Anyway, this album was made from excerpts from his book, Eye Scream; one of his many awesome books.

Fair warning, however, it will put your mind in dark places.  But, if you can listen to stuff like this and still retain a good mood, then you’re doing alright, I think.  Anyway, here’s what Wikipedia has to say:

Wikipedia Says:

Everything is a 1996 spoken word album by Henry Rollins. Everything is the audiobook of Rollins’ book Eye Scream which was written over a period of nine years from 1986 to 1995. Eye Scream covers a vast number of social issues over that time period including racism, homophobia, and police brutality. The album features Rollins’ spoken word accompanied by jazz musicians Charles Gayle and Rashied Ali.
