In a week that has brought us the sex tape of carly rae jepsen and further outlandish comments from Noel Gallagher, I bring you my addition to the fight against muscal mediocrity. The Specials.
You should of atleast heard of these guys. They have been around 35 years. Shit bugger damn thats a while, this band is still kicking it! To be fair it has had so many members over the years it's stupid just to attempt to keep up with it. Ska music is their game. I don't know what all you cave dwelling fortress goers think of Ska but I think there is most certainly a time and a place for it. This is a GREAT addition to it. Trumpets, reggae and attitude what more could you want on a sunny day with a pint? The Specials have a ton of great hits but imma thrpw to you this bad boy.
Almost creepy but I love this track. It's just one of those good chill out tracks. Here's a first for my, your verdict - if you like 2 tone ska music and the specials. Familiarise yourself with older by a year music legends Madness. The two go together so well. But I emplore you to jump into The Specials a bit deeper and relax to it's precursor regae charm and have you brain slowly sloup out of you like an alien invader that has since expired. See you next week.
