In Conversation Horace & Carl
In Conversation: Horace Panter, ex-The Specials, with Carl Hunter, The Farm. Preceded by a showing of the cult Mod film Bronco Bullfrog (1970) in the Studio Theatre.
Tickets: £4 / £2 concessions / FREE for Edge Hill Students
‘Sir Horace Gentleman' Panter, bass player with legendary band The Specials, takes centre stage to look back on his life so far: from member of the most dynamic rhythm section on the Two-Tone scene, to artist, and back again, when the band reunited for tours in 2008 and 2013.
According to Horace's memoir Ska'd for Life, The Specials set out to change the world by making people ‘dance as well as think'. Born and bred in Coventry, he did just that, meeting fellow Special Jerry Dammers at art school, forming a group, and playing a part in the creation of music that exquisitely captured being young, bored, skint and politically-alienated in urban Britain in the late 70s/early 80s.
Horace will be in conversation with The Farm's bass player, Carl Hunter, while The Farm's lead singer, Peter Hooton, will be spinning ska and Two Tone classics throughout the evening.
I'm having bags of fun
