Insurrection for a prom night

John Maus - Cop Killer from Know Phase on Vimeo.

Riot porn has found its soundtrack of the times, a stateless coup d'état dreamed up drunk in the backseat of a car.  Yet this is no adolescent fantasy of the few.  More the scent coming through the open window, something much larger, slow, something magisterially ugly.

With all the formal driftiness of grainy footage.  With the grandeur and delay of pixels that can't quite register the speed with which a scatter of gasoline takes off, along the tar, up the body, across the shields, already fire before it gets there or got itself lit.
