Meet Jesal and Rochard. We are the Transatlantic Rebels.

In Episode 7, our special Public Enemy series consisting of in-depth past reviews begins with their second album "It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back" from 1988. We will follow this in the coming weeks with podcasts for their third and fourth albums "Fear of a Black Planet" and "Apocalypse 91... The Enemy Strikes Black."

We talk about how this album started a revolution that never quite made it to TV; how many times Just Blaze mined this LP for inspiration; refuse to believe the hype generated by Flavor Flav; and assess why this is one of Rochard's favourite albums ever.

Jesal is from the UK, and Rochard is from America. We like to talk in depth about albums, films, TV shows and books.

Rochard has a background in TV, acting, writing and many other areas of art creation. Jesal has a background in music: DJ, producer, artist, critic and other stuff.

Meet Jesal and Rochard. We are the Transatlantic Rebels.

In Episode 6, our special M.I.A. review series reaches her fifth, latest and possibly final album: "AIM" (2016). Yes, we made it!

We talk about every song on the Deluxe version of the "AIM" album; assess the record label situation - past, present and future; argue over hypothetical track-listings; and discuss many other aspects of Maya Arulpragasam's legacy. We also attempt to find out if Ali really is OK or not.

Next week, we begin a three-part series on Public Enemy, and you'll love it. "It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back" is first up, and Rochard is a huge fan.

Meet Jesal and Rochard. We are the Transatlantic Rebels.

In Episode 4, our special M.I.A. series consisting of in-depth past reviews continues with her third album "Maya" from 2010 - otherwise known as ΛΛ Λ Y Λ. We will follow this in the coming weeks with a podcast for her fourth album "Matangi" and the (possibly final) album "AIM" which gets released on 9th September 2016.

We talk about how this album foreshadowed this decade - a Mayan prophecy, if you will; assess the trajectory with which toddlers throw food at parents; that dreaded 'D word' pops up again; and finally realise that our headphones connect to the iPhone connects to the Google connected to the government.
