All The Pretty Horses…


Pitchfork Inna Dance / Murder In The Dancehall

I’ve obviously been a bit slow on the uptake with this, but top reggae blogger / journo Dave Stelfox has a monthly-ish column called The Month In Reggae And Dancehall on the US music website Pitchfork. The latest column looks at Tanya Stephen’s tackling of the homophobia in dancehall issue on her Rebelution album, amongst other things.

(PS: Googling for the DFAH link, I also found this site, Murder In The Dancehall, which is a pretty in-depth examination of the problem, including a listing of 100+ of the most homophobic tunes, a critique of the various apologies proferred by artists and a look at the religious, cultural and political roots of the situation.)
