A firsthand account in the words of the legendary Don Letts of the links he forged between the roots reggae sounds of his culture and the quickly growing punk scene in London in the 1970s. Highly visual, irreverent, revelatory and staunchly individual, this account - from the man who pioneered sampling techniques that have formed the mainstay of modern dance culture; the man who recorded over 300 influential promo videos featuring, among others, the Sex Pistols, the Slits, PIL and Bob Marley - is an inside story like no other.
