Well, it's good to see that the Jerry Dammers-less Specials have managed to stay out of controversy. Not. Got this gem from Terry Hall:
"Thanks very much for Cantona."
He said this at a show in Leeds, referring to a player that was sold to Manchester United in 1992 - a transfer move that later made the Independent's list of the 10 best transfer shocks.
The crowd at the Specials show was not appreciative.
As for Dammers, he was interviewed on May 22 in advance on his May 30 gig at a "Love Music Hate Racism" show. But he's not living in the past:
"You always have to find new ways of saying things and new artists to say them.
Simply repeating the old slogans makes it sound like something from a bygone era, and it's not."
