Oh it brings back memories.

How many young people at the front who want to know the words but just don't grin

I do!

Yes! Lapping it up - brilliant stuff.

I am meant to be going to bed, told DH it was too late for me as I am v tired, but I am recording it. But, I am just watching a bit if it, methinks I will watch it all grin

Yes! And I still would with Terry Hall...

So weird seeing people permanently young in your imagination all, um, old...

LupusinaLlamasuit Fri 26-Jun-09 21:21:19

And I'm fairly sure I saw them as a kid <shows age> at one of the Rock Against Racism festivals. I think they were on with Black Uhuru and The Clash! Or maybe I dreamed that bit.

lupusina grin me too. I am pleasantly surprised that his voice still sounds very young though, he still has that sound, even at 50.

I go out on Friday Night and I come home on Saturday Morning - oh i love this one, reminds me of my first couple of jobs in London as I did this, and listened to this, a lot grin

They are very Special.
Where's Jerry Dammers though?

PavlovtheForgetfulCat Fri 26-Jun-09 21:31:25

Terry is looking a little puzzled though don't you think? He has a big furrowed frown...

There was a Big Row with Jerry Dammers. It was all in the Guardian... Still wonderful though. My friend lived in Coventry then, and we'd walk through the terrible concrete shopping centre singing Ghost Town.

not invited along so it appears! shock

MrsCurly Fri 26-Jun-09 21:35:47

Ah yesss!!!!!! The best song!

PavlovtheForgetfulCat Fri 26-Jun-09 21:36:23

Oh my fave fave one! A (message to you) Rudy - I like this name for a boy, in fact, I am having a boy, so I might pop along and put it on my boys list thread!!!

browntrout Fri 26-Jun-09 21:37:35

I just posted on my FB status thing that I am still in love with Terry Hall after all these years - glad to see it isnt just me!

PavlovtheForgetfulCat Fri 26-Jun-09 21:38:33

Scrap that....THIS is my fave grin

jooseyfruit Fri 26-Jun-09 21:40:56

Bummer about Jerry.
Still bloody love 'em though.

LupusinaLlamasuit Fri 26-Jun-09 21:43:42

Gotta turn over now though: the Ting Tings are finally on...

PavlovtheForgetfulCat Fri 26-Jun-09 21:45:46

The who? I might have to turn over just to see who they are! grin

ElenorRigby Fri 26-Jun-09 21:46:54

Yep DP and I are watching it! They are all looking pretty fit for 50ish! Great stuff

Hassled Fri 26-Jun-09 21:47:17

I am now - thanks!

Their middle-aged-ness is upsetting me though. How dare they get old?

browntrout Fri 26-Jun-09 21:47:35

slight hi-jack (but I always think of him when I hear The Specials) - does anyone know what has happened to Mark Lamarr? He has disappeared off the face of the earth as far as I can see.
