New songs about the london riots etc

Postby John Eden » Sun Aug 14, 2011 2:31 pm

Not sure if there will be many, but let's see?

Fresharda - Tottenham Riot http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGigWLtwc8A (vocoder dancehall)

"Riot In London Town" - KING HAMMOND (actually from March 2011, but what the hell) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_StvqRe1Go (69 reggae style - forget the riddim?)

There's some more rubbish stuff on Youtube and some bits that are old songs that have been uploaded with "tottenham riots" in the title to get some exposure I guess.

Brand new Blackstones 7" on the Supatech label, called Heat In the Streets. Available at that famous Clapham shop which was very close to burning some days ago.
It can be heard on the group's site. Veterans are very prompt to comment the news, it seems !

Yes. and so ? The lyrics fit perfectly. The group was well aware that there was something brewing ahead, as many other people in London who are not regulars of The City !

Then you should have said that the veterans predicted instead of quick to comment. Its not my fault the song came out b4 the riots.
So, so what to you to my friend.

Barry Dread 12" "War Zone" has been put out a few days ago...although the song has been written way before the riots (around 2004), we booked the studio to go and record an extended version...by sheer coincidence we found ourselves recording in a studio down Acre Lane Brixton while the riots were exploding just around the corner. It was kind of mystic because the lyrics talk about living in a war zone which is exactly what London turned into them days...so we decide to include bits of BBC news about the riots and when I hear the tune my mind goes straight back to those days...

I think Guns Of Brixton is a version of the Clash.
