The Specials


An English two-tone ska revival band which was formed in 1977. Featuring songwriter/keyboardist Jerry Dammers, Terry Hall on vocals, Lynval Golding on guitar and vocals as well as a rhythm section, the band helped pave the way for groups such as Madness and The Selector.

The band achieved two number ones with Ghost Town and Too Much Too Young and after seven consecutive UK Top 10 singles between 1979 and 1981, the band broke up. Supported by The King Blues.
