You're Wondering Now: The Specials from Conception to Reunion

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Against the backdrop of the demise of punk, social unrest, and the coming to power of Margaret Thatcher, the Specials burst onto the scene with their unique brand of music in 1979—sweeping up the nation's youth with their edgy, politically charged message and iconic 2 Tone branding. Thirty years later, as the band celebrate their anniversary with a reunion tour, their hard-hitting, poignant tales of teen pregnancy, knife crime, and racism are still as prevalent as they always were. This book sees the first publication of a full gig listing, complete discography, and an amazing collection of rare, unseen photographs from the band members themselves.

About the Author

Paul Williams is a concert promoter, creator and editor of the 1990s cult 2 Tone fanzine Street Feeling, and administrator of the Specials' website.
