Thela Hun Ginjeet by King Crimson


Thela Hun Ginjeet is a single by the band King Crimson, released in 1981. Its tracks are from the album Discipline (1981). The song name is an anagram of "heat in the jungle", which is a reference to crime in the city. (The term "heat" is American slang for firearms or for police.)

While most of the instruments are in 4/4 time, Robert Fripp's electric guitar plays in 7/8 time during part of the song, creating an unusual effect. In the middle of the song, voice recordings are heard. Adrian Belew talks about his experiences with London Rastafarians and the police, while he was trying to get voice recordings for the song.
