Afro punk reggae dub

Steel an' Skin got a reissue a few years back on the Honest Jons label. Found this tasty edit of two of their tunes, prefer the Afro punk reggae dub tune to the vocal.

This came out on 12 inch vinyl, off an album reissue on CD. From the Honest Jons site...

"Great, great rewind from Afro-Caribbean London, 1979. The 20th Century Steel Band compounds intricate Afro-Trini rhythms with reggae and dub, funk, disco and soul, not to mention the eco-operatics. Bonus tracks on the CD — plus Steve Shaw's 1979 Arts Council film of the group on the DVD."
