Been on a bit of an early 80's ska binge of late and I am paying far more attention to the bass work of Sir Horace Gentleman and Mark Bedford. I was about 12 when Ghost Town came out, but grew up more into rock than that whole two-tone stuff (as it was called back then over here), so didn't really dig the bass work at the time. Now however, at 43, listening to the old stuff by these two bands I realise what great players Horace and Bedders were. I saw the Specials a few times a couple of years back on the reunion tour (minus Jerry Dammers), and they were brilliant. The place was teeming with Coventry skins, but it was a fantastic vibe! Choice Specials tunes : The Man At C&A, Gangsters, Nite Klub and Too Much Too Young Choice Madness tunes : House Of Fun, Grey Day, Cardiac Arrest and Night Boat To Cairo. Any love out there for messrs Gentleman and Bedders?
