Enablers are a spoken word rock band that started in San Francisco in 2002. Known for its distinctive character with prose and poetry written and performed by Pete Simonelli, guitar interplay between Goldring and Thomson, and a heavy yet meticulous backbeat provided by Doug Scharin.

In this series of So To Speak we focus on the guitarists in the band Enablers (there is no “The”),  Joe Goldring and Kevin Thomson. In this episode they talk about what being in a “Spoken Word” rock band means to them.

Watch and hear Pete Simonelli read Patton in the traditional spoken word way here –
