Episode 2 of METALHEAD POLITICS, a new show by Freddy Lim of Chthonic and Emily Y. Wu of Ghost Island Media.
It’s been a hell of a month. Freddy and Emily open with positive updates from Taiwan (adultery is decriminalized; a pro-China populist mayor gets recalled) before diving into the topic of the day. They stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and examine systematic oppression in Asia. An estimated one-million people are still in concentration camps in Xinjiang. The Chinese Communist Party performs a force choke on Hong Kong with a National Security Law.
Freddy deconstructs how “Millenia’s Faith Undone” went from Taiwanese lyrics to melody. He sings a children’s song, and introduces LMF (Lazy Mutha Fucka 大懶堂), a Cantonese hip-hop group from Hong Kong. Bonus: Freddy teaches Emily how to do a death growl.
