Taken from the album 'B2 Unit'. "Riot In Lagos" is an edited version unique to this release. "Warhead" is the same edit as the previously released single A side.


I can remember this track "Riot in Lagos" from the early 80s when the mood and atmosphere would change while this track was being played by any dj.
It had this strange way of changing how the crowd danced and interacted while the track was on, people would stop what they were doing.
The crowd would go back to how they danced and interacted once the track had finished
I cannot fully explain this, you had to be there and see and feel this.
I don't know if it would have the same effect now in the 2000+.
This track has a hypnotic effect on the listener, no other track i know can do this.
