It might be linked to Donald Trump. I think there was a pro-Trump rally that got rowdy in Rockaway.


I had a feeling it was linked to Trump. Cheers, Harry.

The piano reminds me of Monty Alexander, a Jamaican jazz artist who's done quite a few albums blending his piano trio approach with old school reggae.

I'll go further and say that had someone played me the opening bars of the track without telling me the artist, I'd have said it was Monty Alexander.

This is him with Ernest Ranglin on guitar. Listen from 30 seconds in.

I just don't know what to make of it to be honest. It just isn't The Specials any more for me and I used to be a huge fan. I know they have to move on and they can't leap around like they did in 1979, but it just isn't the same. The Specials were and will always be Terry, Jerry, Lynval, Horace, Roddy, Brad and Neville. It's great that Terry, Lynval and Horace still want to record and tour, but I think it would have been better under a new band name. Just my opinion.
