The proper music was ashley from the old fella’s. Try listening to the stuff on the Trojan record label!

I think 2 Tone caught the zeitgeist. Of its time and it added electricity. I prefer to listen to Trojan than 2 Tone but like to watch 2 Tone on YouTube particularly stuff like The Specials Skinhead Moonstomp for reminiscence https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=YlWxvlQ8Zy4

I used to, well still do.. listen to a lot of John Holt. Quite commercial, but a more chilled reggae artist.

He did a few very good cover versions

The girl from The Selecter actually said the word 'racism' didn't even exist, back then.

In those days, we were all racialist, rather than racist
