Specials (The) were formed in the 1970’s and were billed as a 2 Tone / Ska band. In 1980, the song “Too Much Too Young” reached No. 1 in the UK and in 1981 the single Ghost Town repeated that feat. Between 1979 and 1981 The Specials had seven consecutive top 10 singles in the UK, three members of the group abruptly left to form Fun Boy Three.
The band was volatile with tensions between members causing several to leave over the years but they did reformed in 1993, and have continued to perform and record with varying line-ups.
2019 saw the release of a new album which was accompanied by a European tour.
