I’m not so sure everybody remembers Bob Marley’s song Burnin’ and lootin’. The French film Mathieu Kassovitz used it in his movie La Haine (1995) in an attempt to poeticise the clashes between the police and young rebels in the suburbs of Paris. 13 years after the movie, and 50 years after Burnin’and lootin’, Parisian duo Justice released their album Cross (ED Banger record label). The videoclip of the piece titled Stress again about violence in Parisian suburbs, yet the gap between the discourse employed by Kassovitz and Marley, on the one hand, and Justice’s Stress, on the other hand, is great.
