Right on Diretweed. Back lot of Socal's is the spot. If not a little ride up to East Portal would do the trick. I am going to bun the fiya in my throat with some cold Eye Of The Hawk on tap.

Jah Bill, Capleton did make mention of gays at the River. My buddy and I both remember hearing it when he said, not that we cared. For the record, let me state again that I am against their views, but not to the point of action against them or booing them off stage. I realize it is part of their culture and I want that experience not a waterd down politically correct one. Let them perform and don't go if you don't like it.

As far as the show still being on, I got a call this morning from one of the guys putting the show on and he says it's still on. He was not aware of the turmoil recently over the gay issue. I asked him if anything was stirring yet about it and there was nothing. He planned to contact the universities up in Chico and Humboldt to see if they've had any objections. So he is aware of it now, but does not plan to change anything as of this point. I tried to explain to him the Bobo beliefs about gays and how they use fire to represent a spiritual cleansing of things and not that they are advocating violence or anything like that. This whole thing is being blown way out of proportion. I think he got the idea and hopefully they will stand their ground if met with some protest.

i didnt mean to say that he didnt make *mention* of them, i meant to say he didnt make mention of them in a manner that i found formented violence or anything and that is the crux of the issue. i see no problem in someone mentioning or even lecturing on things they dont like or dont agree with; the only possible problem i see that i would be against is plainly advocating violence against some one or some group of people (yet a lot of people do it all the time against other groups or people and no one seems to care much...a certain president would be an obvious example, both of a giver and of a target of such speech). imo brigadier jerry made an altogether valid reference at snwmf...someone might not agree with what he said but he didnt incite anyone to riot or anything of that sort. in my opinion that clearly falls with the "protected speech" realm of the first amendment.

now i hate to be cynical but just watch as this unfolds...they are being made aware of the situation and it will end up at the school presidents office and the show(s) will be pulled because of *perceived* problems based on half truths and innuendo. i hope not but im thinking in two weeks this isnt going to cool down, its going to get hotter. it probably would have been better to not call this to anyones attention and hope it remains under the radar, but the cat would have probably been out of the bag at some point anyhow.

anyway we will see how tolerant our so-called educational institutions are. i am hoping to have to eat my words on this one.

I understood what you were saying bill and I assume that you understand, by my post, that I see it the way you do. Pretty soon they'll be handing out devices that you put up to your mouth when you speak and it will automatically censor anything deemed improper.

I was thinking that someone may cringe when reading my post and start yelling at the computer "Don't tell them about it you idiot!" It didn't actually happen just like that. They were aware that the RITP show was cancelled, just not why. Their concern was and is that the performers will scrap the trip because the first show is already cancelled, again not knowing why. I realize that it could turn into a bonfire(no pun intended), but they were already trying to find out what's up. It seems to me that if the cat is out of the bag, the best thing to do would be to show your support for the show by calling or e-mailing them. Unless you just want to stay quiet and hope it goes nowhere. I'm getting really tired of this crap and am willing to voice my support for the artists. I WANT REGGAE!!!!!!!!!

Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea
September 17, 2004 11:31PM
1984, indeed...

"Dead Nigger Storage Box," played by the Kansas-based band, The Brawlers: "We're open for business and packing them in/Got forty niggers in a garbage bin/On the streets they're selling crack/Got ten more in a burlap sack."

In "Unity Through Aggression," the Texas band White Wash sings: "There's a bigger enemy out there/Mud races coming, running the music/Running the sports, time to get off your ass/And do it for the white race. Chorus: Unity Through Aggression/White Unity Through Aggression/Unity Through Aggression/Time to bash some @#$%& heads."

If these guys were going to do a show on your local university campus, would you not demonstrate?

One love,

Rootz

Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea

i dont think i would demonstrate, no. that would just give them more publicity and those kind of people thrive on publicity; it fuels their hate, gains them supporters and makes them think they are not so fringe as they really are.

but its a moot point anyway. i couldnt see any universities around here actually presenting anyone with those lyrics, at least not aimed at the group those particular passages are aimed at. its that PC thing again, and the PC pecking order at least here in cali.

Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea
September 17, 2004 11:44PM
OK, let me perhrase that: If you could stop them from doing the show by demonstrating, would you do so?

"i couldnt see any universities around here actually presenting anyone with those lyrics, at least not aimed at the group those particular passages are aimed at."

So why is it so otherworldly and alarming that they might want to censor anti-gay lyrics? Why is that so 1984?

One love,

Rootz

Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea
September 18, 2004 12:01AM
you fail to see the point rootz and im tired of making it. but i will humor you once more: look up the word "violence". it pretty much describes the lyrics you posted while it pretty much doesnt describe the lyrics i was dealing with. i *specifically* excluded violent or violence inciting lyrics from my "protected speech" bit above.

and my 1984 remark was directly in response to this:

"Pretty soon they'll be handing out devices that you put up to your mouth when you speak and it will automatically censor anything deemed improper."

and the key phrase there is "...anything deemed improper".

buenos dias...and buenos noches.

Don't apologoze bill. You hit it right on the head. Rootz those lyrics were advocating violence. I don't see how that compares to expressing your beliefs through fire. I don't see these guys telling people to bash heads.

fourtwentyplenty
Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea
September 18, 2004 12:28AM
"I don't see how that compares to expressing your beliefs through fire."

How about expressing your views through guns? I think there's 'nuff lyrics of that variety too. And of course those bands would probably also tell you that "mud races" and "bashing in some heads" are metaphors too...

And Bill, your first response also missed my point. Of course a White Power band performing at a university campus would not happen and even if it did, it wouldn't reach the audience. But what if those lyrics were part of what was being offered to 'regular' audience within the context of popular music? That was my point. I was just wondering because so many people cry cencorship and seem to take this whole issue as an attack on reggae as a whole.

As for the "PC pecking order": The flipside of knee-jerk political correctness is unchecked cultural relativism.

One love,

Rootz
Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea

Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea
September 18, 2004 12:38AM
I guess the main difference is that you're able to enjoy the modern Jamaican music regardless of lyrics, whereas the lyrical content is what keeps me away from the modern records... And yeah, that metaphor thing was more a rather weak jab than a serious argument, I'll admit.

It's just that for me there's only slight difference in advocating violence and advocating hate.

One love,

Rootz

Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea

When rap music's lyrics were threatened to be censored in the '90s, the artists responded by making music dissing their critics.
When dancehall reggae music is threatened now into being censored, the artists respond by apologizing and claiming they didn't mean what they said.

Guess which form of music will stay truer to itself...
If the artists have no reason to fight for their own lyrical freedom, why should we?
Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea
September 19, 2004 10:28AM
Well, the US rappers fought that battle on their home turf. Here it's the case of artiists from a 2-mil. Island population trying to maintain presence in US and UK markets, so there's a difference.

So, even though this thread has gone the way of Sacto, I wanted to let you all (especially any Chico folks who might be following this thread) know that I spoke with Ajamu after the Spearhead show on Thur. and he said that he (Ajamu) had signed the contract that day so there should be nothing to stop the Capleton show from happening at CSUC!!! (Yes, Jah Bill, they can still cancel, I know, but I am hopeful)

Just picked up a flyer while at CSUS (yes, I go to school there)

Capleton with Special guest Cocoa Tea
PLUS Jah Thunder and Moses I

Sept 30th, 7:30 pm Serna Plaza.

For those of you who haven't been to CSUS, Serna Plaza is an outdoor grassy area that slopes down to the stage. Easy viewing.
If it is raining or just balls ass cold. the concert will most likely be inside Hinde Auditorium (right inside from Serna Plaza)

I would LOVE to meet people from the board. I'll probably be going alone so it would be nice to hang out.
Cheers!

because the show probably has a very early curfew (this is sacramento after all and its on the campus). might run till 11pm but i would think that would be the absolute latest. i could be wrong though. and yes i think coco tea will probably be on around 7:30 or 8 at the latest.

Drum roll, Capleton/Coco Tea CANCELLED in Chico. (yes Jah Bill, I know) Talked with Ajamu and they didn't sign the contract within the date given so he cancelled them. Might be just a matter of time for Sacto to follow suit. Might want to give a call down there and make sure it's still before you all get too silly with your plans.
Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea
September 22, 2004 09:47PM
UK Subs are a late 70s punk band. Reggae/Dub played an important part in UK punk (The Clash & The Slits especially) in the 70s even here in the US with Bad Brains & much later Operation Ivy. I got into reggae through the punk scene 17 years ago, I heard Dead Kennedys & Peter Tosh back to back at a friends house. I've loved both styles of music since. But now it's mostly reggae.

sack state is a retrogressive college. they kill chickens. they will not cancel capelton just because he wants to blow up gays with bazookas. and do i detect some jealousy in your phrase "silly with your plans"? my feeling is: 1) cocoa tea/capelton plays for us after a bracer at socals. 2) cocoa tea/capelton do not play. we all hang after a bracer at socals. either way i am hoping to meet some (most, all) of those who say they will show up.

Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea

Actually Bufo, the Chico show was cancelled because Capleton didn't sign the contract. The promoter did his part and waited til the last minute before he had to call it. As Jah Bill said somewhere at the beginning of this thread, it would probably come down to this, last minute business. Don't go knocking promoters when you don't know the story. Nothing against you Bufo, your comments are often right on point, just irritates me when people start throwing that stuff around without knowing the whole story. Peace
Re: Any update on Capleton w/Cocoa Tea

Apologies then Empress, I genuinely misread the first announcement as meaning the promoter had not signed the contracts in time. I wouldn't knock promoters unjustified, I know many and am aware of the difficulties in the business.

empress i was going to tell bufo the same thing. ajamu is usually pretty on top of things and its not really like he is a "promoter", these AS things dont get "promoted" in the usual sense since they are paid for by the student association usually (at least at csus and i would assume at csuc too).

STOP THE PRESSES!!!!!

Just heard a rumor from a dependable source that Capleton and Cocoa Tea have been added to the Culture show at Harlow's!!!!!!

That is a serious triple threat show!!!!

Should be announced real soon.

Harlows in on J Street in downtown Sacramento between 27th and 28th street. It has hosted many Renegade reggae shows. Capleton, Culture, and Coco Tea are definitely playing on Oct. 2. They are also playing at the Tahoe Biltmore on Oct. 1st.
Renegade took on these shows because Sacramento State, Chico State, Humboldt State, and Reggae In The Park all cancelled Capleton. Dancehall fans...feel fortunate that there is still a promoter out there who brings over 100 reggae shows to California and Oregon each and every year. No discrimination whatsoever on who plays and who doesn't. Come out and support Capleton and support reggae in general.
