incoming... 'London Tonight' dvd

Coming to Suspect Packages this week...

This DVD documents a covert culture within British social history in which the audience will be viewing “exclusive footage” from the London Underground graffiti scene. This film is such an important film because it actually captures a point in time when graffiti, Subway Art, Vandalism on the London Underground was at one of its peaks in history from the millennium onwards, giving the viewer the opportunity to compare and relate the film to what’s going on around them today. This is done in order to recognize and document social fashions and changes that matter to the youth and working class of Britain and in order to have an accurate and honest social history.

Viewers will be seeing sequences of "Tube Runners", "Depot Footage" and "Action footage" as well as a "Christmas section". This exclusive footage has voiceovers from some of the scenes most prolific writers along with archive news footage, CCTV visuals and footage shot by the B.T.P in a Tube Depot. With a soundtrack by "Demon Boyz", "London Posse", "Hijack" and more this British Hip Hop DVD is visually compelling, informative and action packed from start to finish.

January and February 2007 three of London’s most dedicated and passionate graffiti writers from the East End and Essex sadly lost their lives on London Railways whilst creating their artwork and the second half of this DVD is a tribute to them and their tragically short lives. In this factual, access based documentary style film you will see exclusive, unseen footage of Bradley Chapman “Ozone”, Daniel Elgar “Wants”, and Paul Johnson “Wazu” along with other archive material...
