The Specials, one of the most electrifying, influential and important bands of all time, release “Encore”, their first new music for 37 years on February 1st. 2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the formation of The Specials and the legendary Two-Tone label in Coventry in 1979, and also marks 10 years since the band reformed to play some of the most vital and joyous live shows in recent memory.
The 10-song “Encore” was produced by Specials founding members Terry Hall, Lynval Golding and Horace Panter alongside Danish musician/producer Torp Larsen and indeed is the first time Hall, Golding & Panter have recorded new material together since the band’s 1981 No.1 single Ghost Town.
The Tuts have long been one of the best and brightest new bands in the UK, for what they do and what they represent. This all-female, all-feminist, DIY “3-Tone” trio (of proud Caribbean, English and Indian/Pakistani origin) are avatars in the ongoing debate over inclusivity in the music scene, as well as a powerful musical unit by any standards. The Tuts have conclusively confirmed that a band can still survive and thrive on today’s terms with the right combination of graft and tenacity. They met as teenagers and learned the fierce working-class work ethic that has them literally doing-it-themselves. Meeting Kate Nash led to a tour support slot and EP collaboration in 2013, bringing them to the attention of Billy Bragg, who invited the Tuts to play at Glastonbury. The Selecter's Pauline Black witnessed the occasion and booked the band for a national tour. They've since been riding on the success of their first full length 'Update Your Brain’.
