    On vinyl, Tommy Makem and Ronnie Drew.

    That old black blind bloke in the early Jarman films, think he was a dancer? Jack something.

    Caroll Spinney, who does the voice for Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street. And Big Bird too. Fuck you Dylan Thomas!

    Yes, I was thinking of that, up against Dimbleby, steamrollering him with disdain. They should have had him on with Dizzee Rascal later instead of Baroness Amos.

    Alex Guinness & James Mason. They don't make voices like that anymore. And Peter Lorre.

    Charli 2Na going all Stentorian with Jurassic 5 always works.

    That track with Roots Manuva is two great annunciators together.

    But, yeah, Darcus Howe. And the guy who's kind of the narrator in Big Lebowski, except he only turns up at the beginning and the end. And Brian Sewell.
