Will it be released under the name 'The Specials'? Isn't that name now under copyright, registered to a certain Mr J Dammers?

I'm not feeling the excitement I think this news should bring me. Hopefully this will change as we learn more....

Regardless of what other members of the band may think, the one person who can make The Specials sound like The Specials and has the song writting skills to make that happen is ......guess who... Jerry Dammers. The last time the orginal line up attmepted something without Dammers the result was a rather bland version of 96 Tears Shocked

There have been other things since 96 Tears. Horace and some of the band did a cover of Spectral Display's "It Takes a Muscle" along with M.I.A on Jools Holland's Later a few years back. Terry's version of All The Time In The World and Lynval's version of Redemption Song went down fine on the last tour.
In my opinion Terry and Lynval can both sing as well as they ever did and I think Horace's confidence as a musical director has grown considerably. However, when Kevin Rowland released the 2012 album One Day I'm Going To Soar it was credited to Dexys (rather Than Dexy's Midnight Runners). And when Elvis Costello couldn't get all the members of his backing band together he called them The Imposters rather than The Attractions. I think making these tiny changes prevent a lot of headaches/bad feeling etc

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 pals, guests and helpers and credited to 'The Specials'?

If I might also answer, Harry, on paper the latter works better for me. But hopefully not a cast of thousands where you have a different guest or guests on every track, to the point where it becomes a 'various artists' album with the identity of the main artist obscured.

I would prefer a Terry Hall solo album but if the guests on the new album were Jerry, Roddy or Neville I would also be happy with that Smile

I'm a Terry Hall fan so It's all good as long as Terry is writing and singing the new songs Smile
