“2-Tone grabbed the British music charts by the throat, and for a short and volatile time turned the country into a sea of black and white chequers. The seven young men at the heart of this musical revolution were the Specials, a band whose music and ideals would leave such a legacy that, even today, their momentum is still felt on the face of the fickle British music industry. The Specials led the way for other bands that joined the 2-Tone movement such as The Selecter, Madness, the Beat, the Bodysnatchers and the Swinging Cats.” – An extract from ‘You’re Wondering Now – The Specials’ by Paul Williams
