Legacy in the Dust Four Aces Story documentary by Winstan Whitter

Legacy in the Dust (12A) by Winstan Whitter

This is the story of 'The Four Aces Club', founded in the 60s and which for 33 years was home to the most influential black music and musicians to date. It showcased new musical genres like Reggae and Ska, also a home for Jazz and Soul. Artists like Desmond Decker, Jimmy Cliff, Count Shelly, Ann Peebles, Percy Sledge, Ben E King and Billy Ocean performed here.

Founded in the early 60s by Jamaican east Londoner Newton Dunbar , Hackney's Four Aces Club welcomed some of the greatest musician in the world. It saw a huge range of performers play, including Desmond Dekker, Prince Buster, Jimmy Cliff, Ann Peebles, Percy Sledge, Ben E King and Billy Ocean, then later Bob Marley, Chrissie Hynde, The Slits, Sex Pistols and Bob Dylan, before it became a home to previously illegal acid house nights.

Despite its success it came under fire from the local Police and was forced to close its doors in the late 90's due to a compulsory re- possession ordered by the local Authorities to make way for the regeneration in Hackney for the fourth coming Olympics in 2012.

Charting the club's history right up to its untimely demise as a victim of 2012 Olympic urban regeneration, Legacy in the Dust features personal and often riveting accounts by its founder and many of those who enjoyed nights out at this most infamous of London clubs.
