Description
Dear Mr. Ca–Moron,
What would you know about hardship?
You need look no further than the hypocrites coming through your doors
For the real looters and thugs.
Your rhetorical rant about broken Britain
tis you who is doing the breaking.

Lyrics

From a window above the amber street lights
A cameraman films riot police advancing towards protesters
‘’ Move forward.”
They reach the end of the road
As a swarm of broken Britain’s suddenly appear
‘’ Move back, move back! “

‘’ Holy fucking hell ….. are you fucking kidding me? ‘’


From the 10th November 2010 student riots.
‘’Every one here wants a revolution.’’

‘’ Broken Britain, broken Britain, Britain broken, broken …. “

‘’ We will not put up with this in our country; we will not allow a culture of fear to exist on our streets. ‘’

A redneck posts a video on youtube,
‘’ It’s a disgrace, the man shot a cop, he got shot back, it’s justice
Justice was served. ‘’

‘’ We have had something like 340 deaths, mostly of ethnic minorities, in police custody over the last 12 years. Now, that is around about one a month.’’
same.

Three guys who died in the riots. Two of the men were brothers Shazad Ali and Abdul Mussavir , 32 and 30, another victim, Haroon Jahan, 21.

‘’ Local say Haroon Jahan Shazad Ali and Abdul Mussavir were humble young men, loved and respected within their communities. Today they are being described as heroes and martyrs who’s lives were cut short by the car driven by suspected looters ploughed into them at high speed ‘’

Darcus Howe.
“ Look at young blacks and young whites with a discerning eye and a careful hearing, they have been telling us and we would not listen that what is happening in this country to them.’’

“ There is hundreds of police, there is hundreds of guys, lots of bottles and sticks‘’

riots
sometimes it amazes me how we as the human race can be so incredibly beautiful (like the Indiana stage collapse incidence where people rushed IN to help), but be so unbelievable idiotic at the same time. Riots just about captures the latter...

Excellent track Steve
Really well structured and the mix is perfect. Another tragedy that might have been averted. As division between the haves and have nots grows wider and wider I suspect we will be seeing more of this.

confusion...
Nice track - really sums up the confusion around these riots. There's a whole complex mess of stuff thrown in - working class protest, racism, criminality, police brutality. I like the way it doesn't take a stance - just throws things in for consideration. Excellent.

Great job!
Opinion: millions of views, no one is really listening. One more notch in the fabric of decay for this civilization. We need a reboot of mind and conscientiousness.

Now that's out of the way. Great sound bytes, laden with thought provoking music. I always love your tokai accents and style! Well done.

Thanks for sharing!

Beats n bass are fantastic and the swelling guitars are excellent.
mellow, groovy but powerful.
Nice one Steve

You would be my first choice to create an edgy yet dreamy ambient soundtrack. With the intro of the second shift you cover lush as well. Nice job mixing in the vocal vignettes. Sorry to hear about the riots. I hope your staying clear :-)

Intense...
...man!... Thick chunky endless moments of dark thick and intense moments of chunky goodness, awwww

Talk about beautiful writing for film... And now comes the question that begs an answer that likely, I should have known...,do you write for film, Steve? You should seriously consider the prospect if that's something that might interest you. I always like the tones that you get from your guitar. I'm dign the beats in this too ! Very nice work! Maybe one day I'll be fortunate enough to wind up on the same tune as you. Thanks for sharing! Dion

Docu-music I must say.... it must be good, because it got me mad all over again.... under-priveledged my ar... er, eye. The only food stuff stolen was water because their fire raising was making 'em thirsty..... WE were under-priveledged in the 30's and 40's, but no rioting.... Damp wall, bread and water comes to mind, Grrr don't get me started LOL..... I told you it was good Steve, Cheers M
