Emily Vey Duke pondered:
}I'm just wondering about a rumour I heard about hip club groove. A friend
}told me that they are putting out a single entitled `Bitch'. I
}know they dont really have a history of being anything but completely
}fucked up regarding attitudes toward women (I'm thinking of the line in
}their song `skittles' that says something like `if my wife gets out of
}line, I cut her with a knife.' Thats a misquote. In the song the rhyme
}is `wife' and `knife'.), but that still shocked me a lot.
Good! I suspect the whole purpose of the line is to shock people, not to
advocate violence but to make people think about it and recognize it as a
problem. As I've said before about their song "Kick Him in the Face When
He's Down", I don't think they're advocating such behaviour, rather
they're condemning it.
}seem so nice when Ive been with them. That oddly enough is what a lot of
}young women seem to think about them. Ive wound up hanging around with
}them a handful of times and I really believe that Brian is a good
And most likely they all are.
}What I think about the kindness of the others is that they are
}thinking about how to get women to fuck them all the time, every woman
}they meet. That makes me feel sucked-in and manipulated by them and not
}like they are kind or interesting people.

They're young, maybe they do think about such things a lot. It wouldn't
make them much different from a lot of 20ish males. But I wouldn't jump
Maybe you'd like to discuss this with the band. Chek-luv Shakil is
online, in fact maybe he's lurking out there. I saw him post once, his
address I think was cbowles\!/is.dal.ca but I don't have it on file to
check. Maybe you should drop him a line rather than airing all this dirty
