BORN AND FOOKIN BRED [Aug. 31st, 2003|07:48 pm]
Okrzyki, przyjaciel!
My friend in north London recorded his Jamaican neighbors next door arguing.

The woman has some lungs on her, and the repetition is like Philip Glass.

More like Steve Reich. :) Heh. Did your friend give you any background on this?

No background except that the Jamaican family next door always have a contingent hanging around in the front garden, talking noisily. I have another one that's way deeper into patois -- you can only pick out every 3rd word.

Strange bits I can pick out: "I don't wanna be a Yardies, I was fuckin born british mate. Born and fucking bred. I'm not a wannabe I'm not a wannabe I'm not a wannabe, I know my culture. I know my culture" ... "I'll suck your mother too. I'll suck her with a straw."

A 'yardie' is what they call Jamaican ganstas, and by extention it's a perjorative term for Jamaicans in general.
