FlipsideLondon Radio Episode 127 with 2Tone biographer Daniel Rachel

Daniel has written the definitive history of the Two Tone years. We talk about the book and play some of the music that swept the nation in the late 1970s/early eighties and ended up playing a huge part in the release of Nelson Mandela.

Brilliant listen! Great selections - and personal memories giving context to the times, without polishing out the "difficult" stuff - racism, sexism and violence. Really respecting the importance of Two Tone. Cheers chaps!
