The basic premise of Sam Kulik’s Escape From Society was to make a modern-day song poem recording using Craigslist to attract would-be lyricists, instead of a cheesy printed advertisement. Those not immediately familiar with the whole song-poem concept may well recognize the little ads–often seen on the back pages of comic books, men’s magazines, and tabloid newspapers–promising to produce hit songs from anyone’s poetry submissions for a fee. The results were often an embarrassing mish-mash of banal lyrics accompanied by pedestrian and often pre-recorded music.
