Chosen by: Jeffrey Lewis

Tuli Kupferberg is a favourite ‘cult’ musician of mine, though as he liked to say, he wasn’t actually musically skilled enough to play “anything but the radio”. Even through The Fugs’ later incarnations up until Tuli’s death in 2010, he continued to plough his own wonderfully unique lyrical furrow of politics, humanism, satire and outrage, sung in a voice that was more ghetto griot than pop idol.
