The Specials at Festivals

The Specials (sometimes called The Special AKA) are an English "2 Tone" ska revival band formed in 1977 in Coventry, England. Their music combines a danceable ska beat with punk's energy, underpinned by an informed political and social stance. The group was formed by songwriter/keyboardist Jerry Dammers, with Terry Hall (vocals), Lynval Golding (guitar, vocals) and a rhythm section featuring Horace Panter (bass) and John Bradbury (drums). The band wore mod-style 1960s period "rude boy" outfits (pork pie hats, mohair suits, and loafers). Read more on
