The Death Metal Cowboys of Botswana

Yo, Botswana holding it down! Thankful to have found this video about a unique subculture of death metal music and fashion coming out of Africa:

Good stuff. Self-expression is a birthright, not a privilege. Dress how you want and listen to whatever you like. And in the same day, coming across this Nigerian wedding reception rocking out to Toxicity by System Of A Down, made me very happy:

Music is a universal language.

I will close this post with a word from legendary British singer-songwriter, Lemmy, best known as the founder, lead singer, bassist, and songwriter of the British heavy metal band Motörhead, for all the black rockers in the world, and everyone else for that matter:

One more thing about Lemmy; last October I watched a Sci-fi/Horror film called “Hardware” (1990), and it was nice to see Lemmy make a brief cameo appearance.

Hardware director Richard Stanley tells us how Lemmy came to be in his post apocalyptic horror movie Hardware, we learn Lemmy’s fee, and his views on acting.

Metal enough for you?
