The Specials. Formed in Coventry in 1977 and also known as The Special AKA. Their first solid line up consisted of Terry Hall and Neville Staple on vocals, Horace Panter on bass, John Bradbury on drums, Jerry Dammers on keyboards, Lynval Golding and Roddy Radiation on guitars, and Dick Cuthell and Rico Rodriguez on horns. In terms of youth culture, fashion, and urban based music The Specials were a continuation and development on from Punk. They combined punk anger with a kind of inner city political and social awareness ......... many of their tracks chronicled life and decline in their home city of Coventry. The Specials music embraced what became known as two tone, a mix that included mod revival, ska, reggae, and West Indian influences alongside a punk attitude . Often categorised alongside bands such as Madness and Selecter the Specials similarly have a great repertoire of classic tracks. February 2019 sees the release of "Encore" their first album in over 15 years, with promotional concert dates - so far announced - in the UK and North America.
