Last White Christmas

Last White Christmas by Basement 5 doesn’t really sound like anyone’s version of festive fun but it’s a dubwise, post-punk classic regardless. The names who passed through the band’s ranks is like a late 70s roll call- Don Letts (B.A.D.), Dennis Morris (photographed the Sex Pistols and Bob Marley amongst others), Richard Dudanski (The 101ers, The Raincoats, PiL), Leo ‘E-Zee Kill’ Williams (B.A.D., Dreadzone), Winston Fergus, Charlie Charles (The Blockheads). To top this they were produced by Martin Hannett who said it was the heaviest, most difficult production work he ever did.
