We'd like to thank Amar in France for contributing some wicked live recordings from Basement 5. The tracks, originally recorded on cassette are from a very sweaty night at 'les Bains Douches' in Paris, 1980.
We've added two tracks to our player - enjoy!
I am a Basement 5 fan since 1980.
I've just reviewed the "Silicon Chip" 10-inch on my blog :
(it's in French, but you can try an autmatic translation if you want to have a minute of fun !).
I hope the Basement 5 masters can be recovered one of these days, and a proper double CD retrospective can see the light of day, including both sides of "Silicone chip", "Traffic:dub", the Peel session, and any unreleased or live track available !!
