“An hour-long special made by Banksy charting the history of behaving badly in public, from anarchists and activists to attention seeking eccentrics.
Contributors include Michael Fagan talking about breaking into the Queen’s bedroom: ‘I looked into her eyes, they were dark’; and Noel Godin, who pioneered attacking celebrities with custard pies: ‘Instead of a bullet I give them a cake’.
Explaining his reasoning behind the show, Banksy said: ‘Basically I just thought it was a good name for a TV programme and I’ve been working back from there’.
Narrated by Kathy Burke and produced by Jamie D’cruz, The Antics Roadshow examines the stories behind some of the most audacious stunts of recent times and what motivates the perpetrators, from mindless boredom to heartfelt political beliefs.
It includes a world exclusive first interview with the man responsible for putting the turf Mohican on Winston Churchill’s head.”

Now for something great to come out of Salford/Manchester this week.
MC Strats aka Strategy has been putting work since day with Broke'n'£nglish along with his bredrens MC DRS and Konny Kon. To say the excitement was palpable when I heard about his mixtape dropping would be an understatement.
Finally, here it is and it does not disappoint!
Plus it's a free download so spread the love.
I salute you R' Kid.
This shit makes me proud to have Salfordian blood flowing through my veins.
It was essentially just an excuse to go on the rob and steal stuff, with the tactic of safety in numbers, as the cops can't be everywhere at once.
Apart from shop windows being broken (mostly just cracked from hammer blows rather than put through completely) and of course the Miss Selfridge that was set alight (presumably because there's nothing worth nicking in there) the "violence" was fairly targeted.
Unlike the rioting in London (shouts to my LDN mandem) where everything got pretty trashed in Manchester it was slightly more organized as scallies targeted shops that cater to their needs. That's to say places that sell sneakers and tracksuits and clothing like Foot Asylum, and Vans, Diesel Jeans, and Primark (?!) as well as the obvious jewelry shops and pawn brokers.
The ensuing media hype would have one believe that Manchester was left looking like Baghdad but when I went for a walk to assess the damage it was pretty much normal bar a few cracked windows. The city was far more trashed by Rangers fans a few years back.
All I can say is that it was a very sad state of affairs, and a depressing day for Manchester, one true Mancunians will remember as deplorable.

This guy is a joker!
I'm not going to front I'm not a big fan but I'm fully backing the verse about Tyler The Creator.
Kind of reminds of those old Busta videos.
