Hiya Very Happy Shocked

Been looking for some sort of forum for The Specials and finally found one, I am the only person I know bar my parents that love The Specials and wanted to be around like minded people, kind of a shy loner loser here Embarassed

Doesn't look like many people post here any more but hello all the same Smile

Hi guys Very Happy

I did not mean to interpret anyone here is a loser loner Shocked Laughing but yay for regular posting, I'm glad there even is a forum.

Thank you all for being so sweet, so how are we?

Hello Very Happy

Thank you all for being nice, I was a tad nervous introducing myself but it has been lovely so far Razz

I just cannot do Facebook, social media irks me, bar twitter, sort of.

So is anyone going to the concert?

Do you mind me asking how you got into The Specials? Was you around at the time? They woke my life up a bit to be honest

I think I was hooked just from hearing Gangsters on the radio as a 10 or 11 year old in 79' - it just stood out from most of the other stuff at the time, then followed more two tone releases from The Specials and the other Ska bands of the time and that was it. Thirty five years later and still love it.

I have been on the last three tours, but not going this time around. Just been to see The Beat, The Selecter and Bad Manners at the Leeds fest, so that's probably my live ska fix for this year.

Gah, I so should of been born earlier so I could been around in the 70's/80's, I was made for it! Bet that was amazing though, when they first came out and had a massive buzz. I'm obsessed with all things 1980's > backwards.

I came across The Specials on a 1977 TOTP I recorded 1/2 years ago and saw Gangsters and it blew my mind Shocked The sort of 'fuck you' attitude rocks my boat. I am very sore I've missed out on all these years of The Specials due to living under a rock but better late than never, Embarassed

I love that The Selecter and Bad Manners are still going, this music I prefer over crap being released today, bar a few. Silly question, but are the tours amazing? I already know they will be, but in order to make myself feel better for missing out, I've just downloaded their convert they done in 1980 in Japan(?) I think, so I'll be enjoying this. Hope you don't mind me asking, I am an ant-eater for all info on the past decades
