Hi there forum, name is Dezza living in Hebburn, born 1963 grew up in High Wycombe, switched on to Madness after that first TOTP appearance closely followed by Specials, Beat, Selecter & Bad Manners
First saw Madness at Friars in Aylesbury but missed out on the Specials gig. The lads came back to Bucks College with tales of mob fights outside the gig so pre-gig rumours came true there
Always regret not jumping on a train up to the smoke to watch the bands up there in 79/80 but gigs we never my thing at 16
Sadly the first Specials gig was the comeback at Newcastle although have been to see the others at various across the country. Excellent night, all the hype about the 'energy' was so true and can't wait for the next gig. Have to say well done for sticking with the Aacademies as they are big enough to keep the atmosphere but not so big that they kill it and just make it a performance.
Biggest single comment to Specials and Madness is to support each other and the others (Manners, Beat, Selecter) on the same night. I know the price would have to go up but what a draw that would be. Madness in particular go out of their way to pick support bands with no Ska background so tell Brad & Co to give Pauline or Dougie a bell!!
Cheers boys
