The Specials to Reform?


Coventry Two Tone group, The Specials could well be back with something new in the days to come. Although it's not certain, Terry Hall has spoken on BBC 6 Music saying:

"People keep offering us money all the time, and you try and be polite but you have to say no matter how much money you've got that won't make us do it. We'll only do something if we feel its right. I mean this is the closest we've been in 25 years to maybe doing something but maybe not what's expected - I don't know."

The band put Coventry on the map when they scored a #1 hit with "Ghost Town" and helped influence such groups like Blur and The Ordinary Boys. From The Specials we also had the Fun Boy Three and the Special AKA, so lets wait and see if a Specials revival happens this time around.

  2. LOL - I had it on in the car today, singing along as best as I could.

    Blast from the past, even if it's just before our time.
