Politics aside, it's kind of crazy how the the track went from a free download to selling on discogs for over $100. Nice one Eamonn!

this article is interesting:

Quoting Eamonn Doyle <d...@d1.ie>:

I can't think of any good reason for a European male to otherise themselves and present as a minority woman. Why? This is exoticizing the other, plain and simple.

What about an African male / South American male ? Japanese male ? He is Dutch - Surinamese as it happens. A minority woman ? Where ? In whose eyes ?

Eamonn / D1

There is already a dearth of actual women and minorities in the music game, the last thing we need is dudes pretending to be them. I'm sure he's a super nice guy, but it's beside the point.

How do you know it was for no reason ?

He’s not a wanker actually.

FYI - 'What’s a girl to do' was originally released by us on D1 Recordings in 2004.
