A hard hitting reminder of the fight still going on across the globe. It is systematic, it is everywhere, and it is as old as colonialism.
Maybe you noticed the silence up here this last couple of weeks? It is down to a long and boring story of moving house, culminating in no internet for a long, long time. In the brief moments of riding coffee shop Wifi, between carrying and unloading boxes in the heat it finally hit me that in the time I was offline the world has not stopped being crazy. You can cut yourself off, busy yourself with menial tasks, stay in bed trying not to melt in the rays of sun which bounce through the window but the chaos the next street, country, or continent will not go away. Sabatta deliver a hard hitting reminder of the fight still going on across the globe. It is systematic, it is everywhere, and it is as old as colonization. Cops Watch Cop Shows Too takes us step by step through the moments in a man’s life as it is proved to him that the police are not on his side. Even a clear conscience is not enough to guarantee safety on a simple walk down the street, leading to the conclusion that those whose duty it is to serve are lost in a fantasy world of action and drama.
A hard hitting and relevant message wrapped up in a funk rock groove, Cops Watch Cop Shows Too will wake you up from a lethargic state, or pull you out of an overworked frenzy, and drop you in the real world again, pressing what is really going on out there right up against your window.
