Cypress Hill: Brixton Academy, London

Ben Thompson, MOJO, April 1994

THERE'S A KID slumped at the top of the Brixton academy stairs, his head poised vomitatiously over a large plastic bin. All you can see of him from the back is his Cypress Hill T-shirt. The design is centred on a large marijuana leaf, around which curls the legend "When the shit goes down, you better be ready".
