Formed in 1977, the band’s name has undergone many variations. Initially they performed as ‘Automatics’. Later, it was changed to ‘Coventry Automatics’ and then to ‘The Special AKA’, until they finally settled for the title ‘The Specials,’ in 1979. The musicians made their debut with the single ‘Gangsters’. The number charted amongst the Top Ten UK songs. Within the same year, they released their self titled debut record ‘The Specials’. It was produced by Elvis Costello. Even during their early years in the industry, the Specials gained immense attention for their gutsy lyrics about controversial and sensitive subjects as racism and contraception.
The following year the band came up with their second record ‘More Specials’. It expanded their two tone sound to include elements of lounge music and other genres. The collection features a number of collaborations by notable names of the music industry like the Go-Go’s, Lee Jay Thompson and Rhoda Dakar. Likewise the first record, ‘More Specials’ features songs that consist of intense political lyrics. Its tracks including ‘Rat Race’, ‘Do Nothing’ and ‘Stereotype’ reached the top ten on the music charts in the UK.
One of the group’s most popular compositions is the non-LP single, ‘Ghost Town’. It topped the music countdowns during 1981. However, following the success of the song, the band underwent several changes in its lineup of members. With the addition of new musicians like Stan Campbell, Hall and Golding, the Specials produced the record, ‘In the Studio’. Its song ‘Nelson Mandela’ reached the top ten UK hits and served as a means of promoting the African President in the United Kingdom. Having produced three albums the band mates amicably parted ways in 1984.
They were reunited in 1993 by producer Roger Lomas who approached them to give backing vocals for an album by the legendary ska artist, Desmond Dekker. Shortly afterwards, they were booked by a Japanese promoter for a live tour. Considering the offers pouring in huge numbers, The Specials decided to re-launch their career. Hence, they released the album ‘Today’s specials,’ which was a first after a hiatus of almost twelve years. It mostly consists of ska and reggae cover songs. Two years later, The Specials produced a collection of original music pieces under the title ‘Guilty ‘til Proved Innocent!’. The record received positive reviews by critics in the music industry. Amongst its hit numbers include ‘It’s You’, ‘Tears In My Bear’ and ‘Call Me Names’.
In 2000, the Specials released another cover album titled, ‘Skinhead Girl’. These tracks were actually composed seven years ago when the musicians were recording backing vocals for the project by the ska legend Desmond Dekker. Some of the hit singles comprising the record are ‘Blam Blam Fever’, ‘El Pussycat Ska’ and ‘I Can’t Hide’.
‘Conquering Ruler’ is yet another hit cover record by the band. Likewise the previous album (Skinhead Girl), its songs were recorded during recording sessions for Desmond Dekker’s album. Its prominent numbers include ‘Take Me as I Am’, ‘Tom Drunk’ and ‘Jezebel’.
Over the years the music band has appeared in several TV shows and held numerous concerts in different corners of the world. Their most recent music contribution is the live album titled ‘More …Or Less The Specials Live’. It features a collection of the most hit performances from their Europe Tour of 2011.
The Specials are ready to embark upon a new series of concerts this summer. You can get the fast selling The Specials tickets in order to enjoy the acts of the exuberant performers live on stage.
