"There was a riot in Brixton about a year before the record (Ghost Town) came out. I was writing the song partly about that. Also, Britain was falling apart. The car industry was closing down in Coventry. We were touring, so we saw a lot of it. Liverpool and Glasgow were particularly bad. The overall sense I wanted to convey was impending doom." - Jerry Dammers

“If England was a 45 rpm record, Coventry would be the hole in the middle. An industrial city, the Detroit of England with lots of factories, lots of industry and a huge immigrant population.” – Horace Panter

“Jamaican music gave British punk its distinct identity” - Don Letts

The 2 Tone print offers an in-depth, well-researched insight into one of Britain's most important musical and cultural movements. It compiles the complete UK discography released from 1979 to 1986 by the legendary record label founded in Coventry by The Specials' mastermind Jerry Dammers. Here you'll find the legacy and releases of 2 Tone bands and artists like The Specials, MadnessThe Beat, The Selecter, The Bodysnatchers, Rico, The Swinging Cats, The Higsons, and much more.

Additionally, the print also compiles the post-2-Tone discography with Stiff Records of London's finest, Madness, from One Step Beyond... to Keep Moving, as well as some of The Beat's key releases with Go-Feet Records, and early releases by Bad Manners.

This 2 Tone print is the perfect addition for anyone who is familiar with the legacy of this unique movement. If you want to know more and celebrate the music history of Coventry or the 2 Tone movement, this is the perfect artwork for you. 

Hang it on your wall with pride.
