A Rumour 05:48


Post-humous release to celebrate the life of London poet, wanderer and artist Rob Prophet, who sadly passed away a week ago.

A man plagued by troubles but truly able to convey these emotions and make the world more beautiful through spoken word, bizarre collages and hand-typed diatribes on social decay, Rob would routinely wander across London in his melancholy returning with hordes of books and useless treasures to sell, keep or give away.

A big fixture on the dwindling years of the North East London Squat and Anarchist scene, his gravelly voice and unmistakeable lyrical patter graced the tracks of many an underground musician and producer.

Here is our offering, featuring the legendary producer and instrumentalist Baptiste (of Farra Wo), and our very own Kyle (He Was Eaten By Owls) providing the musical backing.

He was a truly gifted poet, and a truly strange gift to the world.

Please share this work with your friends' hard drives, cdrs and mix-tapes, in an effort to further his own 'rumour' and continue his legacy.
