The Specials Ltd
When the original line up of The Specials split in 1981 they left behind a legacy which has been unrivaled by a single band since. The group were integral to promoting an anti-racial ethos, created a unique image and combined punk, ska and reggae music while lyrically commentating on the state of Britain in the late 70’s and early 80’s. They formed their own 2-Tone record label which launched the recording careers of Madness, The Beat and The Selecter.
The Specials Ltd recreate the passion and enthusiasm of The Specials, bringing back memories of those who were there first time around and showing younger fans what they missed. The Specials Ltd are a 9-piece band full of energy, excitement and accuracy, performing Specials favourites such as 'Gangsters', 'Too Much Too Young', 'Do The Dog', 'Message To You Rudy', 'Stereotype', 'Rat Race', 'Do Nothing', 'Monkey Man' and 'Ghost Town'.
