LKJ predicted riot, got riot etc

Early eighties Linton Kwesi Johnson video; difficult to fathom why they bothered making this, as I can't think of anywhere that would have played it at the time - what with the video primarily consisting of policemen getting beaten up. Still, some rare footage of the Brixton riots, which somehow look all the creepier for being shot in the daytime, rather than the typical night shots you normally get. A good starting point for LKJ is his FORCES OF VICTORY album.

"It dread inna England", indeed.
