Obey Giant Late Hour Riot Poster Release

Obey Giant has new release next week featuring a collaboration between Shepard Fairey and Dennis Morris.

Basement 5 were a reggae punk band from London founded in 1978.

Fusing their own experiences with punk rage and dub-wise rhythms, together the band explored themes of alienation, 70’s inner-city existence, and what it was like to be a second-generation immigrant. The title of the poster comes from one of the songs "Riot"
