Crossed the line and you crossed the border

My friend Alex just developed an old roll of film he took when Riko played 93 Feet East in late 2005 and found the above pic. I think I remember this incident. A group of guys bumped into Riko (or maybe his car) on the way into the club and instead of apologising, they starting having a go at him. Anyway, Riko went insane and was shouting at about 20 people at the same time. I think things cooled down when he went up to one of the guys and said something like, "If I take you down that alley way over there you will never walk again." Fun times.

In other news, my friend James tells me that the Niche night club has secretly been opened up again under the guise of a shop near Columbia Road Market. He said as he walked past they were playing Adele, presumably to throw the police off the scent. I'm guessing the bassline starts after hours.
