More Specials was more musically challenging than the first album. Even so I'd be surprised if they did a whole album of new material in the same vein as their debut. On one hand you could say they've ...

Ideally it'd be great to see the original members all back together to record new music. But maybe it's better to accept people have moved on. Look at the struggle that went on with recording More Spe ...

Finally something new from Terry on the way, it's been a long wait Very Happy

Would you rather Terry did a solo album that Lynval and Horace guested on. Or, the three of them made an album with various old ...

I'm intrigued. Nice to see them doing something new, and hopefully it will be new songs rather than covers.

I always thought if Dexys and UB40 had signed to 2 Tone it would have done wonders to the label’s longevity. Circumstances certainly got the better of 2 Tone at the time at it quickly became what Damm ...

It's super cheesy looking back, but at the time to have an early evening show run by and for 'the yoof' was cutting edge.

Toyah Wilcox often presented Look Hear and used to constantly stick her ton ...

Speaking of books, Rip It Up & Start Again: Post-Punk 1978 to 1984 looks like it has quite a lot on 2 Tone, just saw a snippet of it online.

It really is three books in one, and all worth delving into. Where the 2-tone section is concerned, it's about the nearest thing you'd get to a collective history of the movement, with the input of re ...

Finished the book now. Definitely a must-read. Lots of new information even for people quite familiar with the basic story.
