I think Vulva is referring to the actual sound of his voice, not any particular accents or pronounciation subtleties.

i had a hunch, but i wasn't gonna say anything. you asian.

was that thread about "Jap imports" being politically incorrect on Netphoria or somewhere else? regardless, three cheers for james iha, who i'll be seeing in the flesh on july 30th. it's been too long. but will i get to hear his asian-y voice? that remains to be seen.

i was listening to James and Billy's Bridge School Acoustic Performance from years back and James sounded like an old asian man. Fuck, I am technically asian.

the day after I read this, I put LICD on in my car, and my boyfriend's response was: "oh. he sounds like a white dude."
the irony kills me.
