There's a running theme on Ocky Milk which you could state as "What if Jamaica were floating in the Sea of Japan?" There are so many rasta-looking people in Japan that you sometimes think it already is. I spent the early part of 2005 living in a totally rasta house in Hokkaido, for instance, watching the film "Rockers" over and over.

And so I send Nyahbinghi drummer Count Ossie to China, or set a young dread loose in Japan, bringing his sensuality but also a certain psychopathology; he's murdering the bonsai trees.

The Japanese are fascinated by negritude, but also tend to equate foreigners with crime. This track ties up both of these "occidentalist" projections.

Ganjin Smash? The guys name is Azrael. I used to read it back when he regularly updated it. I loved the stores about him blocking package attacks and Kancho. haha 1000 years of pain.

not just dread, but cholo

please tell me you are also aware of japanese being fascinated by cholo culture.... one of my fav things is finding evidence of this in the forms of pics and magazines. growing up in s california and loving the cholo aesthetic, i love that (at least a small percentage of) japanese have come to love it as well.
