From the moment Parliament’s “P-Funk Wants To Get Funked Up” erupts over the opening of Young Soul Rebels, we know we’re in for a wild ride. The changes keep coming as an interracial sex act in the bushes turns into a murder, setting off a police investigation and waves of controversy in London’s black community. The year is 1977, and while some people are busy getting ready to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Silver Jubilee, others have more important things on their minds. Punks and Teds, National Front and Natty Dreads are fighting in the streets, and the authorities seem more interested in harassing the victim’s friends than in solving the crime.
