Carolina Lins & Os Planatos - I Predict A Riot

Quick Overview


In the 1980's and 1990's, Brazil were the most glamorous football team in the world; with the likes of Zico, Socrates, Romario and Ronaldo turning the team game into an art form. However, Brazil also had the greatest football player never to have played the game. Growing up in Rio de Janeiro, Kaiser grew up dreaming of escaping poverty to become a professional footballer. He lacked the talent to do so by conventional means, so he constructed an elaborate alternate reality that enabled him to join some of the most iconic clubs in the world. 

In reworking the track Myles teamed up with the film’s composers Simon Elms and Colin Smith  and the vocal stylings of brazilian singer Caru Lins - coming together as Carolina Lins & Os Planatos. As football fans, the Kaiser Chiefs loved the story and had only one request: that this version was to sound like it was the 1980s original. As the original track features a multitude of british colloquialisms and references to Leeds, Myles worked with a translator to shift the track from 2005 Leeds to 1980s Rio, translating it into Brazilian Portuguese. Whilst the chorus of the song refers to the Brazilian Portuguese way of saying “i predict a riot” (“sinto cheio de confus do” or “i smell confusion”), the second verse of the track was rewritten to refer to a riot started by Kaiser to disrupt that game and ensure that he didn’t have to play. Housed in a reverse board sleeve, styled on vintage Panini football cards.
