The Specials - Ghost Town (Video Review)

Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review

WWW, November 2007 - The Specials were one of the leading bands of the righteous Two Tone Ska and Skinhead revolution in the UK during the 1980's. "Ghost Town" was one of their major hits.

When Reggae had already been established in the UK during the 1970's, there was kind of a "Ska Revival" during the 1980's. The music, however, was as much related to Reggae Music as it was to Ska.

It was called the Two Tone revolution and you could say, that in a way these were "Roots Skinheads" who knew their history and were very much against racism.

You see: Skinheads and Ska are related, and not just since the 1980's. In fact, both terms come directly out of Jamaica and it has been in use there since the 1960's.

In this video, however, we'll meet one of the leading Two Tone bands in one of their most popular tunes. Enjoy!
