1974: That Carib Club Story And Other Clubland Horror Histories
History consultant Kwaku’s mash up video highlights the story of Dennis Bovell, one of the owners of the three sound systems playing at the Carib Club, also known as Burton’s, when a fracas between the revellers and police shut down the night’s entertainment, and the court case, that ended up at the Old Bailey, jail and its impact on his creativity. It goes on to highlight other bad runnings within clubland over the decades, be it from the police or racist door policies.
