Not Us / Not Them—Penny Rimbaud + Louise Elliott
Not Us / Not Them is a recording of 2 poems read by Crass co-founder Penny Rimbaud, accompanied on the saxophone by former Laughing Clowns member Louise Elliott. Evoking the general atmosphere of the Beat poets with the combination of jazz and spoken word, Rimbaud’s "Oh America" reads as a personal response (or continuation) to Allen Ginsberg’s "Howl," while "Not They" is a weary challenge towards political indifference.
