Basement 51965 to 1980 ... LP
Island (UK), 1980. Very Good+ ... $11.99
UK West Indian ex-pats in vaguely sci-fi looking outfits team up with Martin Hannett for a blistering set of post punk guitar slashing that sadly seems to have become mostly a side bar in the history of the 80s UK scene – although sometime singer Don Letts did start Big Audio Dynamite later. ...

Mango/Island, 1975. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
