NGH! There's a map that Cui Jian made of his Long March Tour somewhere online? In a book a read recently? that spoofs on that one
Avatar 7:24pm northguineahills:

Ironically, Cui Jian is the only artist I've heard of before so far.....
Avatar 7:26pm TDK60:

Chresti: saw your Q? @ Oi. The term "Oi" is a London-Cockney kind of "hey" or "yo". It was very basic subgenre of punk/hardcore mostly associated with skinheads. I think some of it was macho or even right wing. But I don't know much more. Anyone?
Avatar 7:26pm hyde:

@TDK60 that is a fair summary.

I don't think so, but there was at least one band in China that I think toured with SY ... but I really don't remember!

"Oi" reminds me of "SKIN", a graphic novel of the 90s:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Gary:

Whoa, Henry, that looks intense
Avatar 7:51pm northguineahills:

I know John Zorn toured China in the late 90s w/ Yamamata Eye and Merzbow, Nerzbow released a CD of one where the album cover was an actual Mercedes Benz. Zorn and Yamataka Eye released a 300 cd Box Set mostly based on that tour. I've only seen it advertised once in the Wire in '99.

Since Jim O'Rourke has been in Tokyo, he's toured China a lot (until he took his hiatus away from music, but he's sndtrking again).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Gary:

300-CD box! I'm just going to try and imagine that for a while
  7:52pm ?:

So the Subs are from China?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Gary:

Subs! Yes, Subs are from China; these Subs, anyway
  7:54pm Mark R:

wow, amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Gary:

Avatar 7:54pm northguineahills:

I meant the album packaging was a Mercedes Benz, the cd could be found in the cd player.

We live in a predominantly Chinese city with lots of teenagers and twenty somethings, and I swear I have never heard this kind of music blasting from their cars. What gives?

Recently I asked my more knowledgeable friends about the particular style of vocal attack known as Cookie Monster. Of course I thought, what else would you call it? But Gary, clue me, when did it become an international style? I was half asleep when I heard what I think was your take.
