“Your last chance to dance before World War Three” Specials singer, Terry Hall called it. An exaggeration of course, but 2-Tone did serve up the most perfect pop music since Trojan reggae had dominated the UK Top Ten a decade before. And the bands kept coming - Bad Manners, The Beat, The Bodysnatchers. Even Judge Dread came back. Garry Bushell, who wrote the original Dance Craze magazine, was the first rock writer to see the Specials live, the first to interview Madness and the first to watch the bands attempt to export their magic to the USA. This is his funny, informative and affectionate history of the rise and fall and rise again of the Rude Boys.
This is the heavy, heavy monster book, the nuttiest read around! It’s also the only introduction you’ll ever need to the boss sound of the 1980s! And The BODYSNATCHERS! With a saucy portion of Judge Dread thrown in for good measure...
