I first saw this 'gotcha' piece when Jessica Hopper linked to it. There were a couple of ILX threads on the Kill Whitey dance parties. While the brainwashed piece makes some good points, it's a tad sanctimonious if you ask me. Plus, brainwashed.com appears to musically only cover white indie-rock. While that's not be racist, it's not like they are exactly multicultural in their own practices.

curmudgeon (Steve K), Saturday, 5 November 2005 06:08 (thirteen years ago) link

maybe they find hip-hop albums really hardcore.

'Twan (miccio), Saturday, 5 November 2005 06:10 (thirteen years ago) link

There's only a few hiphop reviews...

CocoRosie made Uncut magazine's list of top 50 albums for the year.

From the Jonathan Dean, Brainwashed piece:

"While reading the article, I came across this particularly heinous quote from a typical, post-ironic urban hipster trust-fund baby:

'[Bianca] Casady was raised in Santa Barbara, Calif., but quickly notes her worldliness by listing the cities where she has lived along the trail to Brooklyn. A regular Kill Whitie partygoer, she tried the conventional (that is, non-hipster) hip-hop clubs but found the men "really hard-core." In this vastly whiter scene, Casady said that "it's a safe environment to be freaky."'


Who do you think that could be making such horrifyingly non-worldly, ignorant and racist generalizations about black men? Surprise! It's none other than Bianca Casady, one-half of sister duo CocoRosie, whose debut album won them high praise from Pitchforkmedia and The Wire, and whose recent album, Noah's Ark, was called "hypnotic" and "angelic-sounding" by Allmusic.com. My recent review for Brainwashed noted that the album sounded like "a collection of willful, calculated eccentricities clumsily juxtaposed with each other."

curmudgeon (Steve K), Saturday, 5 November 2005 06:21 (thirteen years ago) link

That she wants a safe environment in which to get freaky seems typical, she seems the type of chick who'd have a couple of safely "attempted" suicides in her past

More than a little misogyny behind the Brainwashed piece, I feel.

They give a lot more leeway to the likes of DIJ and Boyd Rice. But then they're 'serious' industrial artistes dealing with the themes the straight world finds shocking. And big tough guys.

Yeah, this is tabloid hackjob bullshit.

Now I don't even like CocoRosie, but finding a regular hip-hop club intimidating (I'm presuming it has more to do with sexism than race btw, although it's hardly spelt out as such) but not finding a hipster equivalent the same = non shocker.

You could make the same assumption about Jamaican Dancehall vs. a Hollertronix party and still be TOTALLY missing the point.

Ellen Allien's said in interviews that she used to go to hip-hop clubs before getting into techno because (aside from digging the music) she didn't get strangers grabbing her behind at them. So, does that make her a racist when she's hanging out with Mad Mike and releasing Kero 12"s on her label?

Worst song, played on ugliest guitar (fandango), Saturday, 5 November 2005 13:54 (thirteen years ago) link

I fucked that up, she found less sexism at the techno clubs was the point I mangled there.

This is totally more of a sex/class/musical culture issue than outright racism (although it's certainly a factor, but not the whole story).

Worst song, played on ugliest guitar (fandango), Saturday, 5 November 2005 13:58 (thirteen years ago) link

The whole issue of "Kill Whitey" parties in the first place is still completelu UGH though. But that's a different thread.

Worst song, played on ugliest guitar (fandango), Saturday, 5 November 2005 14:00 (thirteen years ago) link

Oh god... fuck this thread and fuck these fucking fuckwits on all sides here. Retracting any attempts at making this whole thing look good. My comparisons above are way off the mark regarding this Kill Whitey thing vs. a regular Hip Hop club too. This CocoRosie girl seems more plain stupid than (knowingly) racist.

I could be wrong, but maybe the reason they're under the "race" microscope is because they used the N-word in their songs. Not exactly cool to begin with.

iDonut B4 x86 (donut), Saturday, 5 November 2005 16:43 (thirteen years ago) link

Granted, Brainwash wasn't around to weight in during the original thread, but IMHO their editorial really doesn't say anything new, whether you sympathize with them or not.

-- Cliffy (clif...), November 5th, 2005

I see that as a bit different. I haven't heard the song, but I don't know what context the word is in. To outright say any white artist who uses the n word is racist is a bit off.

The Brainwashed article is clearly writen by someone who was waiting for CocoRosie to slip up so he could say "SEE, I GAVE THEM A BAD REVIEW WHEN THE ALBUM CAME OUT! LOOKS LIKE BAD PEOPLE MAKE BAD MUSIC AND I WIN ON ALL COUNTS!"

He also brings up HUGE topics and barely deals with them. Don't bring up something like post modernism being the death knell of culture and only mention that you heard it from some neo-Marxist.

And yes, the "dumb rich white girl doesn't really get it" angle was downright offensive in its own way.

i know, this is horrible. i don't really want to be involved. just thought for a second its interesting how she says she doesn't want to be treated that way yet is obviously entertained by white boys doing their mock sexual aggressiveness thing on her that they've borrowed from hiphop culture....what does it all mean? there's something retarded from every angle about this, yet i sense no one is really guilty. but still can't stand cocorosie -even their music seems like they're not participating.

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Sunday, 6 November 2005 00:21 (thirteen years ago) link

Having seen them live, I can corroborate that statement.

Forksclovetofu (Forksclovetofu), Sunday, 6 November 2005 00:22 (thirteen years ago) link

The phenomenon of the KW parties is stupid and kind of insulting, but this piece goes way over the edge. It's quite possible that Cassady is not, in fact, a "trust-fund baby" as alleged by the piece, it's pretty unlikely that the majority of the party-goers will go on to become captains of industry, or whatever, and it's also possible that the hip-hop clubs she checked out were in fact kind of shady (though it's also possible that she just projected her fears onto them). In any case, criticizing these parties doesn't necessitate painting a klan hood on the photos of all their attendees.

Hurting (Hurting), Sunday, 6 November 2005 00:34 (thirteen years ago) link

what do you think happens at hiphop clubs? even in gay clubs you really can't go for long w/o having atleast some guy pull his dick out on you on the dance floor and the groping/grinding etc is a given. indie/hipster clubs are just safer than every other place-no one's ever pulled out his sickly pale indie-dick on me or even made excessive contact. i really don't think her stantement is about privileged white woman's fears of the unknown etc.

i am sure every city in america has a party like this. the one i used to go to was called "booty bassment". the only difference aside from the name was that they didn't hand out a discount for bringing a fucking bucket of fried chicken (tasteless!) and the DJs didn't act and talk like total asses.

Wait, is that true?! I've never been the clubbing type (I don't think I've been to a dance club in the last 11 of my 29 years), so forgive me if I seem like a complete naif for being shocked at this. But I am. Men pull their dicks out on the dancefloor? Routinely?

joseph cotten (joseph cotten), Sunday, 6 November 2005 18:15 (thirteen years ago) link

I don't think I ever got a chance to throw this on the other thread, so I'll toss it here: so far as I can tell, CocoRosie as an entity has a sorta complicated relationship with black people. There are the period-piece racial slurs on record; the whole overblown Kill Whitey thing; there's the fact that their "backing band" consists mostly of black people, and the last time I saw them they took the stage in Sean John sweats. I'm not sure it's worth trying to draw big conclusions from any of this stuff, apart from the idea that the sisters are, say, "interested in" or "engaged with" black culture or the idea of blackness. See them live, with all the beats provided by beatboxing black hipsters, and it seems a lot simpler and stranger: we might think of their music as some kind of "freak-folk," but they play it like it's intended to be some mixup of old-time scratchy jazz and modern r&b -- like Billie Holiday produced by Timbaland, or something (which turns out to feel more than a little like Portishead's aesthetic). How race works for them beyond that is a pretty open question, except for the obvious fact that it does something for them, and is at issue; their band includes black people and they're half-Cherokee, aren't they? So all this "trust-fund hipster racists" stuff seems to evade something way more interesting with these two.

Also yes, there is something so gigantically stupid and bizarre about saying the hipsters at Williamsburg parties are going to become "captains of industry." They're in their late twenties -- if they were ever going to do something beyond live in crappy lofts and play in bands, chances are they'd have gotten started on it by now. The bulk of them will get office jobs like everyone else, and the rest will wind up making cabinets or repairing amplifiers or running record stores or becoming publicisists.

shh nabisco you'll get in the way of the incipient class rage, how we gonna have a revolution without the class rage

Banana Nutrament (ghostface), Sunday, 6 November 2005 21:20 (thirteen years ago) link

You have class rage and still distinguish between economic class and social class! (Not that "hipsters" are even that far up the social-class scale; it's just a meaningless little pocket that people who pay attention to youth culture obsess over.)

E.g. I don't think it's coincidence that constant anti-hipster sneering (usually Williamsburg-related) coincided with the explosion of internet culture-talk: suddenly you can have bloggers with no significant experience of a particular hipster spot or place or scene who can look at the pictures and read about it in record reviews and develop some bizarro fantasy of a whole neighborhood of trust-fund racists with Flock of Seagulls haircuts doing coke all night and feeling superior to everyone. All shit that might, in some extreme instances, kinda vaguely trend toward certain realities, but it's still totally bizarre. Weirdest of all: the way "Williamsburg" become shorthand for NYC hipsters has created this class of people elsewhere who actually think it's a full-neighborhood hipster-trash party, despite the reality that Williamsburg looks and feels not that incredibly different from any "hip" younger neighborhood, anywhere, from San Francisco to Chicago to Philadelphia. That "captains of industry" line in particular is just kinda like ... well, this person's understanding of what he/she is talking about is massively divorced from reality.

(NB the last time some random person on ILX unleashed one of those weird Williamsburg fantasies, I found myself actually in Williamsburg later in the day, and I was really really tempted to take a cameraphone picture of the people on every street corner. I can't remember everything I was thinking about taking a picture of, but highlights included an everyday-middleclass black couple, some old Polish women walking a dog, a guy with very-unfashionable long hair and cargo shorts, a couple normal girls who looked like they'd probably work in publishing, and so on.)

I'm glad this thread ended up less vitriolic than past threads dealing with KW parties. I think you have to acknowledge that indie white kids pretending to be black for laffs often find the humor in the fact that its "white kids acting black"! ie, not that the blackness is funny, but that white people are too "awkward and square" to like hip-hop. I'm not trying to excuse these people, I just think its also possible that they are trying to confront the uneasiness of white/black relations. I just am not sure its as mean-spirited as everyone assumes. The fried chicken thing kinda destroys this argument tho.

“The Camargue’s a landscape with just the right amount of darkness and death,” Bianca said. “Pale-wheat land and gray skies, the migration of storks in December, this Gypsy fête where they take the black Madonna into the sea. But it’s also harsh and ugly, trashed with lying-around junk. I’m in love with West Texas, and this part of France is completely Texan, ancient cowboys with leathery skin and light-blue eyes.” She went on, “We’ve started this thing called white-trash Sundays, where we burn wooden palettes, have our way with tractors. At night, the baby screech owls scream for food—it’s the most demonic sound I’ve ever heard.”

“We record in our courtyard at dusk,” Sierra added. “The birds are leaking into every song.”

I like DJP's explanation, but not as much as I like Rock the Night.

My sister-in-law apparently did some kinda of ancestry.com family tree that supposedly uncovered native-american ancestry. NOT Cherokee; a lesser-known group of people who would have been more appropriate for the area. But I don't know how much stock to place in that website, ya know? My dad was a super-genealogist. Spent his weekends at the National Archives and perusing Mormon microfilm collections. I really hope that in his retirement he'll offer to do some work on my wife's side of the family, so that my kids don't run around spouting any awkward fairy tales about their heritage.
