The second single and title track from the forthcoming album
D*Note are the first band to successfully fuse jazz and jungle. "Iniquity
Worker" featured a Roni Size remix and made Single of the week in NME.
"Criminal Justice" sees D*Note return to their political roots. However,
the lyrical content of the tracks is not just about the much hated act,
more a comment on how British justice itself seems to be the real
criminal. The track sticks to the facts: That Britain now has the highest
prison population in Europe (over 50,000), that most judges are white
males over the age of sixty, and that black people receive longer
sentences for the same crime as their white counterparts. British courts
accept uncorroborated evidence and confessions like practically no other
court system (certainly not the French or Americans), and now with the
police caution we have seen our most ancient right of "innocent until
proven guilty" removed. With the recent spate of untenable convictions
(The Birmingham Six, the Tottenham Three etc); it seems that British
justice is just as bad as the third world courts that western liberals
spend so much time attacking. Matt Wienevski and Navigator tell it like it
is: that this country has lost its justice and that the act itself is
designed to keep a lid on these inequalities.
Musically the track features for the first time on a junglist record, a
live acoustic double bass courtesy of Gary Crosby and the live wah sax of
D*Note front man Matt Wienevski. Navigator is assisted on vocals by long
time D*Note collaborator Dee Major.

Press Release 2:
D*NOTE "CRIMINAL JUSTICE" A GUY CALLED GERALD REMIX DOR31/CD
RELEASED 16TH JANUARY 1995
Well here it is as promised the Gerald Simpson aka A GUY CALLED GERALD
remix of "Criminal Justice" and the slightly slower (!) "Solomon's Dub".
Gerald is one of the most innovative and ground breaking musicians in the
country. From writing the legendary "Voodoo Ray" and "Pacific State" in
the late eighties to his acclaimed junglist ventures like the 93 album "28
Gun Badboy" and the Detroit inspired jungle of "Finley's Rainbow". Gerald
takes D*Note's jazz junglist political commentary and pushes in into the
By contrast, "Solomon's Dub" is a much more sedate affair and will placate
those of you outraged by D*Note's forays "into the jungle". Surprisingly
it is a dub mix of "Solomon's Blade" one of the many slow cuts on D*Note's
forthcoming album CRIMINAL JUSTICE. In fact there are only two and a half
jungle-ish tracks on the album, so don't panic! The track features the
talents of MATT COOPER on piano, GARY CROSBY on acoustic bass, MATT
WIENEVSKI on flute and bits of PAMELA ANDERSON's vocals ...well it's a dub
"Criminal Justice" the album will be released on 30th Jan 95 followed by
XPRESS 2/BALLISTIC BROTHERS mixes of "The Garden of Earthly Delights"
released on 27th Feb 95.
"'CRIMINAL JUSTICE' IS CURRENTLY
BEING REMIXED BY A GUY CALLED GERALD, HIS MIX WILL BE FEATURED ON THE
FINISHED 12" AND PROMOTIONAL COPIES OF THAT MIX SHOULD BE WITH YOU BEFORE
CHRISTMAS. THAT PROMO WILL ALSO FEATURE A DUB MIX OF 'SOLOMON'S BLADE',
SHOWING THE SLOWER MORE FAMILIAR SIDE OF D*NOTE."
