still don't know the name of this song
Max Tannone, Mos Dub (2010, here)
The Roebucks at FestForAll, Baton Rouge, 2010 (my YouTube channel)
Hey, I'm a white person, and in that capacity, like Mos Def. The Stuff White People Like website doesn't really address the white liking of dub music (possibly because nobody but me and braindead narcotics addicts like dub music), though they do discuss the white liking of Bob Marley, which is about as reggae as most people are willing to go, if that far. Anyway, white people and those passing for them might join me in liking Mos Dub, Mos def songs set to reggae beats. If you need a whiter recommendation than mine, I got hipped to this by a Boing Boing listing on my RSS feeder, which is the whitest way you can find about anything.
On the finery of whiteness tip, here are a couple more videos of my old rockabilly roommates, neighbors and good friends the Roebucks playing at FestForAll. I've known them for some 20 years now and still don't know the name of this song, but it is one of my favorites of theirs, right after "Guided Missile (Straight to my Heart)"
"I'm Coming Home" is pretty tight as well, unlike my camera skills. I need a tripod I think.
