I prefer this rehearsal version of Can't Get A Break to the one that ended up as the B-Side of Girlfriend. I think this is pretty good.....

I agree with you. I love tracks like LKJ's England Is A Bitch. In my opinion the new version of 10 Commandments doesn't sound anything like him or The Fall or Sleaford Mods the track it brought to min ...

The new Mojo is out - there's a big feature on Specials / 2-Tone. Jerry declined to be interviewed. There are comments from Nev and Rod as well as Terry, Lynval and Horace - it's a bit sad how they do ...

The Uncut reviewer believed Vote For Me was the best new song on the LP. (There are some spoken word things and covers but only 4 new songs).

I just read Tom Doyle's review in Q magazine he is even ...

Encore gets a positive review in the new issue of Uncut and there's a small interview with Terry.
The reviewer says it's good but that you can't help thinking if Jerry was involved it would be really ...

Maybe we'll even finally hear some of Jerry's new music next year as well.

There's a demo of Real Love which is Lennon and guitar and another version with Lennon and piano both of which are lovely and far better than the Beatles version.

I like the recent photos of Terry, Lynval and Horace (I wish they'd used them on the cover instead having a plain grey sleeve). I think on this record Horace is the man of the match and it's his bass ...

Cheers Mike.
The track I most want to hear is their new version of Lunatics.
But I'm keen to hear 'Vote For Me' too.

I'm at work but I read on facebook Steve Lamaque was going to be the first person to play the new single by The Specials this lunchtime.
