250_Basichipsm.jpgFirst released in 1961 by improvs Del Close and John Brent, How To Speak Hip, was a take down of the language instruction albums of its time and has become an internet meme of sorts. It features the cool and collected voices of Geets Romo, a “hipster” who agrees to instruct the “square” on the ways of hip language. Besides downloading the album via torrent or rubbing this Buddha’s belly, there’s been no way to enjoy this historical record at a whim, but the audio technicians at Skeyelab Music were good enough to convert the vinyl to digital. |Skeylab|
