Basement 5. 1965 – 1980 (LP, Album). Island Records, Island Records. 1965-1980" has everything: starting with a super-modern sleeve design, a cutting, even violent Martin Hannett production, a handfull of tight songs, blending punk, a solid dub bass/rhythm section, some twangy guitar overtones, monotone voice with quite an agit prop awarneness in the lyrics: "No Ball Games" kicks ass, as does "Heavy Traffic".
Consumer Guide Album. hit their groove, I think maybe The Flowers of Romance was just a dream I had. The lyrics are stupidly militant at times-England's problem isn't "female rule," it's Thatcher's rule, and not even that-but when things get this boom-boom-boom I can ignore the words if need be.

Basement 5 were a reggae punk fusion band from London founded in 1978. Their first vocalist was Winston Fergus, then Don Letts. One of their early performances was a support for Public Image Lt. s London debut at the Rainbow on Christmas Day 1978. Finally in 1979 Dennis Morris - photographer of Bob Marley and the Sex Pistols, took over as creative force, lead vocalist and lyricist. Following this, they recorded their début album, 1965-1980, with record producer Martin Hannett, releasing it on 11 August. On the first day of recording the album, the existing drummer known as Anthony "Bigga" Thompson walked out of the session. The band was in shock. Having just finished touring with Ian Dury and The Blockheads who they became very friendly with, they then used their drummer "Gentleman" Charles Charles of the Blockheads for the album.
