Big Audio Dynamite: No 10 Upping St.

Lloyd Bradley, Q, December 1986

IN THE HILLS above Rio, until his recapture, lived Jose Carlos dos Reis Encina, a violent criminal and provider of food and medicine to the needy. This benevolent drug baron is a folk hero to the poor people of that rich city, and is now the subject of a song on the new Big Audio Dynamite album.
