First time reggae seeped into my collection was probably Black Market Clash. Or maybe UB40 signing off. Either one, I didn't recognise it as reggae until my mum (she's a brummie) told me. You didn't hear a lot of reggae in rural wales in the late 70's. It was punk or mod as far as I was concerned.

So were the clash not the first white band to attempt proper reggae? Dub reggae even? Must have been among the first at least.

I heard the sex pistols in reverse - great RnR swindle et al before NMTB. It probably diffused the power maybe, because they never got me excited.
