LKJ - Inglan Is A Bitch (Video Review)

Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review

WWW, October 2007 - When LKJ started to chant his in-depth poems over heavy drum and basslines, the genre of DUB POETRY was born.

Strong, conscious words form the bulk of Linton Kwesi Johnson's oeuvre. His poetry will go straight to the heart of the matter, whatever angle of downpression and other forms of (social) injustice the mighty DUB Poet will cover.

In this poem, he calls Inglan for what she is.

Without the backing of the deep, deep DUB sounds by Dennis Bovell that most people associate with LKJ's voice, he recites the poem that Babylon really doesn't want to hear.
