UB40 - One In Ten (Video Review)

Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review

WWW, October 2007 - Recorded in an empty stadium, we'll meet a young UB40 in the official video-clip of one of their first major hits. And they tell it like it is!

The year is 1981 and the economical crisis in the UK produces a high number of unemployed. They have to fill in their UB-40 form in order to get some money to live.

A group of young Reggae Lovers decide to take matters into their own hand and form a band. They name the band UB40 and release some very strong material. Social injustice, and other forms of Babylon Downpression are named for what they are.

The band would reach world-stardom in just a few years. Known for their specific -commercial- sound, they released one hit after the other.

In this video-clip, we'll meet the band just after they started. "One in Ten" is a strong accusation against the Shitstem for making people into a number, "a statistical reminder of a world that doesn't care", as the lyrics go.
