2011

“The internet created a new desert…and that’s why I like the internet. Jesus had his desert—he could go there, to a place that was empty, and relax and be alone, think and come back.


Where can we be a new version of our selves? That’s what we need. We don’t need a place where we can express ourselves…we need a place where we can be a new version of ourselves.

In our free time we build our radical spaces. On the internet, which is still a desert. And we like it.”

BAK 2 SKOOL

via Banana Klan’s DUB COLLEGE

NEW DECADE, SAME OLD PLANTATION.

As we enter another year full of renewed passion for achieving in the face of the non believers. Moments of silence intensifies the grown up consideration of our existence. Be it not our position to judge any movement other than our own, but the same urgency that lead to the initial audio war cry is yet of further more importance than ever. Ignorance is more in vogue than retro fashion wear. Klan stay distant to trend watching and manifest game plan via old fashion need. And so the Migrant Expression must flourish by any which means. The media mechanism has expertise in riding off the coat tails of the underground then closing its doors on the said activity within the melee of few damming reviews. Protection is guaranteed from a commit to a life time of Dub Culture study. The internal klan manifesto is about to be revised for the new year.

Please forward your two pence worth of wisdom to Bananaklan75@gmail.com

Work to love, love to work. This year and every other year all klan familiar must make their own rules.

1. Fear no creative advise, stand by your gut instinct.
2. Do for self before you beg a two pence.
3. Make preparation till it hurts.
4. Bond with the less likely.
5. Never forget 99 per cent of record labels are cowards, turn coats and rich kids who have nothing better to do with their life.
6. Please your own sweet self.
7. Blog and leek your shit till a business model appears.
8. Set trends never follow the whim of the moment.
9. Live your art form, master your escape route.
10. Failure is nothing to fear.

HERE LIES A LION

“The central philosophy…stressed that in essence that all belief systems and humanity are connected to and are guided by one central cosmic intelligence, whatever name we would like to call it. I therefore feel at home in all the major planetary belief systems and religious philosophies, as long as they do not reflect a narrow minded fundamentalist point of view or dogmatic approach to life and the pursuit of happiness. In a nutshell that’s how I’d like to leave it.”

REST ETERNAL : HOTEP IDRIS GALETA

Respect to this comrade musician, educator, father.

THE SARTORIALIST: GRAMPS STATUS

…in which our unsuspecting rhythm guitarist gets swept up into the maelstrom of fashion blog fame and certain fortune!

Mpumelelo Mcata aka Mpumi BLK JKS aka Itchy Palm Productions getting some street style blog shine on a recent visit to NYC.

Comments section FAILs are the best! Anonymous says, “This belongs on a fashion blog? Sweater too small, hat too small, “shoes” are actually sloppy slippers. Sorry, just doesn’t cut it for me.” Bwahahahahahahahahaha…Nice try!
