Culture Dealer Accepting Song Poem Submissions

Run DMT's Culture Dealer imprint is accepting lyrics submissions to make your very own song poems. For those unfamiliar with song poems, you should really watch PBS' documentary, Off the Charts: The Song-Poem Story, but the basic concept is as such: you send your poetry to a company who, for a nominal fee, will make and record a song based on writing and send it back to you. As one might expect, the kind of people who would actually do this tend to be a tad wacky, a trend that has blessed us with the batshit insanity of gems like Caglar Juan Singletary's "Non-Violent Taekwondo Troopers" or, my personal favorite, Ramsey Kearney's acid-fueled proverb, "Blind Man's Penis." If you want to make it to the big time and keep this tradition alive, send your lyrics, band name, and whatever else to Culture Dealer Studios where The Doobie Sisters Family Band will record your song to cassette as a split with another aspiring song poet. If you're up for it, you may even be featured as part of their One Hitter Wonders Compilation series. --Matt Sullivan, Altered Zones
