The Specials, The Special A.K.A., The Fun Boy Three, Mark Ronson and BBC Concert Orchestra ft. Terry Hall, The Colorfield and more.
This mix is mostly about Terry Hall, singer of the british 80's skaband The Specials. After a big fight with Jerry Dammers, he left the Specials and the band moved on as The Special A.K.A. Terry Hal did a lot of projects, of wich The Fun Boy Three and The Colourfield were the most succesful. Terry Hall wrote Our Lips are sealed together with Go-Go's guitarist Jane Wiedlin. In 2000 Rolling Stone named it one of the 100 Greatest Pop Songs of all time. Amy Winehouse was a huge fan of the band and added their song Little rich girl on the setlist of her live-concerts. Terry Hall never wanted a reunion of The Specials, but since 2008 the band is touring again (without Dammers, who is the founder of the Specials!). I'm looking forward to see them live on stage very soon.
