Basement 5's seminal and totally underrated In Dub album available on vinyl for the first time since it's original release on Island Records in 1980. The collection was produced by sonic alchemist Martin Hannett and stretched out the band's sound and gave each instrument space. Partly formed out of the Art Department of London's Island Records HQ in 1978, Basement 5 were an innovative and highly original black post-punk group who created a kind of politically charged, futurist Dub. Their lyrics were an attempt to reflect the situation of young people in Britain in the era of Thatcherism, high unemployment, strikes, racism, and working class poverty. The seething resentment, dub noise and sheet metal riffage was welded into a mighty sound by Hannett that stands the test of time. For fans of PIL, Killing Joke and the dub parts of the Ruts.
