Reissue of the '81 album, '1965-1980' by Basement 5. A band partly formed out of the art department of London's Island Records HQ in 1978. They were an innovative and highly original black post punk group who created a kind of politically charged, futurist dub and this album was produced by the legendary Martin Hannett.

Pressed on 180 gram heavyweight black vinyl with 12 page booklet featuring rare and unseen images from the punk-era photographer, Dennis Morris' archive.
