I just bought mojo magazine.
terry says his dentist spotted he had cancer but after 6 months he's been given an all clear!
It sounds like the new material will be along the lines of his The Hour of 2 Lights album

Terry: "We will never have a plan. We all wanted to try out some material that we haven't played, so we put a tour together."
They will be playing rarities such as Maggie's Farm on the new tour.
Hall & Bradbury's new material is part soul, part jazz part bhangra.
Brad: "I'm so into that cultural diversity ... there's definitely a future which is exciting."
Terry is interested in working with a string quartet.
He says the situation with Jerry still baffles him.
Regarding Nev, Brad says "there's always minor arguments"
Terry says the Alan Carr book helped him stop smoking. Obviously he's pleased he doesn't have mouth cancer

I absolutely love the Hour of Two Lights album and often wondered if The Specials would have ended up sounding like this.

Thanks Harry Smile

I've always imagined The hour of two lights being a Specials album because of It's political edge and I think Jerry would have like the sound direction Smile

One day the walls will talk and we'll get to hear it all Smile

Terry's 3 new songs and Roddy's endless scribblings = A mighty fine EP!

I quite like this Terry track:

I can't quite imagine Roddy doing a guitar solo in the middle but you never know

Terry Hall And Mushtaq
The Hour Of Two Lights
HONEST JON'S RECORDS

'Recorded as Blair and Bush were conspiring to strike fear and loathing into the region responsible for these grooves, it's every bit as topical as Ghost Town, as eerie as War Crimes', Time Out.

Nominally this is a collaboration between Terry Hall and Mushtaq, once of British-Asian pioneers Fun-Da-Mental — but 'everybody we worked with had a story to tell,' recalls Terry Hall, 'and their stories became part of the record. We were blessed with the range of people we found.' A Tunisian singer, a Syrian flautist, an Egyptian who had settled in Iraq, a twelve-year old Lebanese girl, a blind Algerian rapper from Paris, a choir of Polish gypsy refugees brought in from a social club in Leytonstone, the clarinettist who recorded the original Pink Panther theme; singers in Hebrew, English, Arabic, Romany. 'Everybody had a sense of something in common in their minority and oppression and struggle. In the end, it felt more like we were editing a film than making a record.'

A year in development, the album is also a powerful reflection of the time in which it was made and the storm that was gathering: Bush and Blair were intent on Armageddon in Iraq; in the refugee camps on the West Bank, atrocities were being committed on a daily basis; closer to home, sections of the British media used the fear of terrorism to whip up a hate-fuelled campaign against asylum seekers and other minorities pushed to the margins of society.

'What was going on as we were making the record seemed to make it more and more political. We had something to say, but we wanted to avoid being worthy or preaching and keep the words to a minimum.'
