    music won't benefit from trying to draw in middle eastern, indian and asian music to a far greater degree than it has already.

    What does your whiteness mean to you? Do you try to play the drums whitely?

    Do people in a multicultural society naturally arrange themselves into these ethnic groups, more so than aesthetic preferences or personal temperement, or politics for instance
    ?

    Well this is it isnt it. This is the crux of the matter. Everyone who grew up in London deep down believes that they are basically black

    John Eden puts on a knitted red gold and green tam, lights up a massive bob marley spliff and plays his selection of dancehall 7s, making that soundsystem airhorn noise with his mouth as soon as he's safely indoors. Even corpsey can do the whole skibbadum bibbidum spike milligan lyric without tripping over his tongue. If we were to form a band how would we go about bracketing that?It's impossible. Its bone deep.

    For whatever reasons, and regardless of its merits, asian music is not part of a shared London culture. So attempts to tack it on (sitar on top of a drum and bass beat, whatever) feel forced, conceptual, artificial
