The Specials seem cool from the two songs I've heard, which are 'Concrete Jungle' and 'Much Too Young' and my mate, who usually has very good taste (apart from the exception of Xtc) loves them. I might have to listen to them now actually....

You should listen to The Specials other UK number 1, Too much too young. Not only is that good if you are able to obtain the EP as it was released then it includes two boss live cover versions of Liquidator and Guns of Navarone.
The first album by The Specials, self titled is a brilliant debut. The tune that brought The Specials to my attention was the superb single called Gangsters which strangely is not on the first album released in the UK. However the single does feature on a German import of the first album.

That's strange as you made the same mistake. Simmer down is Marley and presumably Mr Trilby is referring to Get up Stand-up also by Bob.

A band from my own home town , have actually been to a gig recently of Roddy Radiation (Specials Guitarist) , with his new band , The Skabilly Rebels. Was excellent, lots of Specials covers.
