About this album
A poet and chronicler of the social and political conditions of blacks in Britain during the late '70s (and into the '80s), Linton Kwesi Johnson was an originator of the "dub poetry" form popular among UK punk audiences at that time. The style involved the reciting of poems over a dub-inflected instrumental backdrop. Johnson's musical compatriot Dennis Bovell mixed a pair of dub albums from LKJ's early recordings, which are prime examples of early UK dub science.
