Fun-Da-Mental: Turban Warriors

Push, Melody Maker, 9 May 1992

"FORGET THE IMAGE of Asians as passive, happy people," begins Prince Haq, MC with Fun-Da-Mental, a Bradford group who are fast making a name for themselves as the Asian Public Enemy. "Listen man, there are gangs of young Indians and Pakistanis like us on the streets of Bradford, Birmingham, Manchester, everywhere, who refuse to put up with the shit our parents and grandparents have lived with for years. We want changes – big changes – and we want them now."
