For my second video I returned to the documentary aesthetic that had defined my first single, Save Yourself. While that film had focused on the 1979 Iranian revolution, the video for Insurrection portrayed the street fighting that erupted in 1981 in reaction to institutionalised racism against Brixton’s black community. The track features dub poet and fellow Brixtonite Linton Kwesi Johnson reading his work on the subject, Di Great Insohreckshan, and was released to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the riots.
