Give Me Your Hump: The Unspeakable Terry Southern [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Campbell
The late Terry Southern was notorious not only for co-writing Dr. Strangelove and Easy Rider, but also for two books that would become cult classics and later films: Candy and The Magic Christian. Southern was also fond of inebriation. He could hold his own with other high-profile reprobates like William S. Burroughs and Dennis Hopper.

The late Terry Southern was notorious not only for co-writing Dr. Strangelove and Easy Rider, but also for two books that would become cult classics and later films: Candy and The Magic Christian. Southern was also fond of inebriation. He could hold his own with other high-profile reprobates like William S. Burroughs and Dennis Hopper. Like Burroughs, Southern had a flair for captivating an audience with his usually slurred inflection. Southern could tell lecherous tales coded in male chauvinism or outright "dirty old man" diatribes, but his disarming aristocratic intonation made him sound like an eccentric uncle telling inappropriate jokes at a family gathering after too many toddies. Give Me Your Hump: The Unspeakable Terry Southern captures that noxious combination of humor and deviance from Southern himself and also brilliantly assembles a motley crew of like-minded characters, including Marianne Faithfull in a profanity-filled performance that rivals "Why'd Ya Do It" from her Broken English album, Martin Mull, Allen Ginsberg, and Michael O' Donahue. The guest highlight, though, has to be the once-in-a-lifetime combo of Jonathan Winters and Sandra Bernhard, who perform a short play concerning Kafka, Freud, and Kafka's mother. This is a stimulating audio introduction to Southern's work, and, well, just outright crude fun for its own sake.
