Bill Hicks - "Play From Your Heart" / "Great Times On Drugs"

On a day when I’m home sick and feeling pretty crappy I thought I’d share some comedy with you from the late great Bill Hicks - certainly a comedian who lived the rock ’n roll lifestyle if there ever was one. I first heard the man’s work - equal parts shock value hysterics, biting social critiques, and cathartic soul baring - on a compilation CD from Uncut Magazine way back earlier this decade. The mp3 here - “Great Times On Drugs” - is, let’s just say, true for many. Seriously funny shit, just don't play them if you're at work.

And from an album that is certainly deserving of its own post (note to self) here is a tribute to Hicks from Ed Hamell, aka Hamell On Trial - a hero of the New York’s anti-folk scene. The song “Bill Hicks” appears on his terrific 2000 album Choochtown.
