Revelations

"Write the things you have seen and what is and what will be.”

Mike Doughty is a wizard of words who fronted the group 'Soul Coughing’, one of my favorite performance entities of the late nineties. This past year he had a vision of the "Book of Revelations”, surely one of the most influential and hallucinatory word epics of all time, as a rock opera.

The performance was sponsored by one of my favorite spoken word podcasts, Kurt Anderson’s Studio 360

Although I don’t identify primarily as a practicing Christian, this piece reveals to me the power of language in a whole new way. 

Here it is, in full.

Revelations.
