Things that made my day this week:
I’ve mostly been listening to a mix by UNKLE (James Lavelle) for Dazed & Confused magazine
…. and the Zhou Family weddings and funeral band
Continuing the China music theme, there is a great documentary on hip hop in Chengdu in Sichuan province – Hip-Hop in the Home of Hot Pot | Sixth Tone – the tension between the underground and sell-out reality TV version of Chinese hip hop comes across really well in this film.
Great interview by Pharrell Williams of Henry Rollins
Maserati Owner Found Fake Version of His Car with the Same License and Registration | Jing Daily – it looks as if registration plate cloning is being used in China to sell illegally imported (probably stolen or crashed vehicles) – but I can’t work out how the driver managed to pay so little for his illegal ride. It would be worth more as scrap
