Bass and Brass Players Wanted For Ska/(80s)Hardcore Band (Phoenix, AZ) [11 Jan 2006|01:59pm]
Beatska & The Psychedelic Sunflower Kids are looking for dedicated brass players and a bass guitarist, who own their own instruments and preferably have their own means of transportation, interested in touring and doing lots of shows in and around the metro-Phoenix area.

We're looking for trombone, sax, trumpet and any other horn players we can find. We don’t do strictly ska, we like to experiment and do a little bit of eighties style hardcore mixed with reggae as well.

If you are interested e-mail Joe at Sunflowerbeatska@hotmail.com.

Thank you. -Joe M.

So this morning, i turned on MTV. They had a "You hear it first" segmant with some british rock band. Than they had a little interview with a member of the band and he was all like "there is almost an order of elite british bands, first the rolling stones" than they showed clips of the bands, "Than the clash, The Specials..." and than i was suprised...

ok, so i thought it was pretty cool.

Hola. I am the new owner of this community, and I DO take suggestions.

We have a good 13 members right now, more is always awesome, though. I spruced up the info page (adding interests and what not), so hopefully someone will find this place. But, I ask that we all promote. Doesn't matter where. Just freaking do it!

i recently found and downloaded two specials videos of the songs Gangsters and A Message to You. if anybody can tell me how to post those to this community, (or if its even possible) i would gladly post for everyone to see. i downloaded them from a shareware program, so there is no website i can give you to see them on your own.

k, well i would hate for this community to vanish, so here are some ways to make it better...

1) change the journals website from the mods journal to their site, http://www.thespecials.com/ .

2) put this in the 'bio' section of the info... " http://www.roddyradiation.com - a ska/rockabilly band with former specials guitarist http://www.nevillestaple.com -  Specials singer's solo project" just because the specials arent a band doesnt mean the band members arent doing anything.

3) POST! anything you see about the specials write in here... if you see gwen stefani wearing a specials shirt, if you find a cool picture of them, if you are looking for some songs, etc.

4) promote!

lets get this community off the ground!! woo! who's with me!?!

wow, i'm glad to see there is finally a specials community. infact, i'm shocked to see that anyone even knows who they are anymore. :( but yes, good to see some fellow rudies. :) well... i'd like to open the topic of what a "rude boy" or "rude gal" is to all of you... i'm always interested to see what others think. i know the history, but a lot of people take their own meanings. please feel free to share. ^__^

Mod Speaking... [04 Jul 2005|07:18pm]

I changed the layout because it was bugging the fuck out of me. I'm not so sure about the colors though. When I'm not feeling so lazy I'll go back and change them. So enjoy?

well since this community needs to get off its feet a little bit i thought i would make a good post...

first off if you go to http://www.myspace.com/sublimetribute you can check out 3 songs off of the sublime tribute cd and the No Doubt Cover has a verse from "a msg to you rudie" at the end of it...

is there a specials cover album? i know big d has done little bitch, one of my personal favorite covers, but is there any other covers you know of???

and does anyone have a link for the specials cover of "pressure drop"?
