Album Info


Biko is an anti-apartheid protest song by English rock musician Peter Gabriel. It was released by Charisma Records as a single from Gabriel's eponymous third album in 1980. The song is a musical eulogy, inspired by the death of the black South African anti-apartheid activist Steve Biko in police custody on 12 September 1977. Gabriel wrote the song after hearing of Biko's death on the news. Influenced by Gabriel's growing interest in African musical styles, the song carried a sparse two-tone beat.

Peter Gabriel is the third eponymous solo studio album by English rock musician Peter Gabriel, released on 30 May 1980 by Charisma Records. The album has been acclaimed as Gabriel's artistic breakthrough as a solo artist and for establishing him as one of rock's most ambitious and innovative musicians. Gabriel also explored more overtly political material with two of his most famous singles, the anti-war song Games Without Frontiers which became a No. 4 hit and remains his joint highest charting. Peter Gabriel said in the Under African Skies documentary: 'Biko' was a more overt political song than the work of Graceland, but Graceland introduced millions of people around the world to what was wonderful about South African music. It made people feel good, want to dance - there were so many positives in Africa, yet most of us still have this image of a child surrounded by flies or Africa as a basket case that needs help.

The remix of Biko is mostly re-recorded with new vocals by Peter.

A record that could only be written by a genius. From the record to the sleeve, Gabriel's motifs are quite clear - a shout against totalitarian brutality and injustice; the brutal death of the South African martyr as directed by the Apartheid authorities didn't go unnoticed and this song is a clear reminder of the ultimate sadness and gruesome politics. While eternally condemning the (now-declined) racist regime of South Africa, 'Biko' still echoes this frustrating state of being, as the world today continues to stumble upon greed, power and corruption, causing righteousness to perish further into oblivion.

Despite the menacing drumming and accompanying chants that mercilessly fight against prejudice during the song, there is still space left for optimism. A tiny air of hope. Gabriel sings with suppressed sadness - but everytime he stands towards the glorifying bagpipes arrangement, breaking down into 'Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja - The man is dead', he unleashes the moment of shedding an honest tear. 'Shosholoza' is understandably a conceptual part to the main track, while the German-titled 'Jetzt Kommt Die Flut' addresses rage against Apartheid's monstruous act of Biko's dismissal.

'Biko' is a truly thought-provoking piece - a hit that condemns pop-music as form of entertainment. The 12" version needs no specific introduction - like the original album version, this one is a fight-against adventure all of its own, extended and more confrontational towards racist violence.

A shocking collage on the rear cover of the single, juxtaposing severe burns on Biko's body with everyday leisure life, serves the warning purpose alone - but once you hear the music contents, it certainly won't make you indifferent - but politically aware. World, are you listening?
