Post subject: whyaye man Reply with quote

Just registered. I'm 46, from Newcastle upon Tyne, and have been a 2 Tone fan since 1979. It was the first music I really got into, along with early punk. The Specials are my fave 2 Tone band, though I also like Madness, The Beat, The Selecter, early UB40 (first 2 albums), early Dexys (first album) and, to a lesser degree, Bad Manners and Bodysnatchers.

With punk, although I like the Pistols/Clash/Ramones/Damned/Buzzcocks, the punk I grew up with is the 2nd and 3rd wave of bands - Sham 69, Ruts, Stiff Little Fingers, Cockney Rejects, Angelic Upstarts, UK Subs, Slaughter & The Dogs, Cock Sparrer, 999, Vibrators.

I also like Bob Marley, 60s/70s Trojan reggae and early Jamaican ska/bluebeat. And, completely aside from punk and ska, some soul/Motown and some early rock n' roll, Elvis, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis etc.

Have recently returned to my roots (fashion wise), buying a navy Harrington and cherry red DMs. First time I've owned a Harrington since the 80s! Anyway, hello everyone, looking forward to posting here!
