One of the most prominate and asked-about samples on my Kikapu Netlabel EP (and LP) is found at the end of "We're taking over the world Richard". Here's the interesting story about it:
The sample is a message I got on my answering machine a few years ago. The caller says "This is a message, um, to Richard Warman from one of David Icke's nutty followers. We're taking over the world Richard, we're taking over, and there's fuck all you can do about it. We are right."At the time of recieving this message I had no idea of who David Icke was, nor how to spell his name so had no luck in google. But googling "Richard Warman" brings a whole bunch of links, lots of which include David Icke references.
It turns out that David Icke is a fairly well known, wacky conspiracy theorist from Britian, who believes, amoung other things, that there is an elite group of people who control the world, including the Queen Mother, George Bush, Hilary Clinton, Tony Blair, etc. who are either themselves reptilian, or work for the reptiles as mind controlled slaves. Where these wild, out-there claims become controversial is that he linked many of these reptiles through a jewish family, the Rothchilds, and the antisemtic nature of his ideas were latched onto by some far right "hate" groups.
Enter Richard Warman, an Ottawa based human rights lawyer who battles neo-nazis, far-right groups, "free speech" groups and David Icke about the publication of hate literature (both printed and online). David Icke and others have launched an online and written war against Richard Warman, and it's therefore difficult to find much pro-Warman information... but here's a more favourable article written about Warman in the Ottawa Sun. Most other google links to Warman are like this, and this, and this, and this ...
I guess since Warman is in downtown Ottawa, as I am, the person who left the message got the right area code, but wrong number. As the Ottawa Sun article mentions, Warman gets tons of phone threats.
And as an interesting twist, a friend of mine who knows of David Icke recently told me that the voice in the message sounds a lot like David Icke himself.... maybe it is?
