Charles Amirkhanian, "Just" (you know, the one that goes "Rainbow Chug
Bandit Bomb," etc.) Other of his work may be helpful too. There are
some free streams at www.radiom.org.

Larry Polansky's "Idle Chatter" series.

Depending on the scope of your paper, you could think about connecting
with hip-hop, rap and sampled speech/song in electronic pop music. In
recent ea, there may arguably be some (unacknowledged? unconscious?)
borrowing from these traditions.
