    Vince, one of the tags says “world music” – what is world music?

  2. January 26, 2009 1:55 pm

    World Music is an annoying marketing term, coined to allow the old record industry to shove all non guitar-based music conveniently into racks in their shops where although it might sell a few ‘units’ to the leftist liberal middle classes who were too square for rock’n’roll, it wouldn’t actually draw enough attention to upset the lucrative trade in predictable poppy arse-wipe music they’d built their industries upon.

    Or not. I suspect it was marketing people struggling to come up with a label to stick on the music becoming known to the mainstream music world after Paul Simon’s Graceland album had shown the possibility of it being saleable in the West.

    I guess it helped in one way, as it effectively filtered out all the crap and you could go straight to that rack in the shop, bypassing all the factory-produced drivel of the big four record labels. The problem, of course, is that much of this music should BE the mainstream. It is good music!

    However, the record industry is run by intellectually-underachieving, unimaginative, white guitar-music fans and their even less hip but slightly cleverer bean-counting cousins look after the cash flow. People with black or brown skins can’t possibly make good music unless it is squeezed into the corporate r’n’b hiphop ghetto mold, where all content is controlled by The Man so it has no chance of affecting social change.

    We use the term World Music so people can find our music but it’s a crap term and means nothing. All music comes from the world. Probably.

    who is The Man?

    The Man is a derogatory term used by the hippies of old to deride anyone in authority but particularly those who want to control and oppress. The Goverment etc.
