♫♪  Dean Blunt - “Trident 2”

@jesuschrist3000ADHD’s “Trident 2” features the allusive, if no longer as elusive, Dean Blunt channeling his inner Linton Kwesi Johnson, that is, offering up spoken word reports on London yoot. Yet, where Johnson composed dub poems set to music produced by others, Blunt seems to have simply recited excerpts from an article over more than eight minutes of (possibly) original music. Fair enough.

To be more specific, “Trident 2” purports to tell the story behind “Trident,” the b-side to Blunt’s single, “50 Cent,” off his upcoming Black Metal LP, due out November 4 on Rough Trade. Two days later, on November 6, the performance artist formerly known as Roy Nnawuchi will (supposedly) be doing a show at The Studio at Webster Hall in New York, with another gig booked at Jewel’s Catch One in Los Angeles on November 7. Jet lag be damned.
