This town, is coming like a ghost town
All the clubs have been closed down
This place, is coming like a ghost town
Bands won't play no more
too much fighting on the dance floor
I'm stoked they are playing I just wish Jerry Dammers was playing too. Terry Hall will be nice though, I'm sick of Neville Staples touring with a new band calling himself the specials.

The "real roots of ska" are from Jamaica in the 1960s. Not from Coventry UK in the late 70s. The Specials were one of a number second-wave ska bands (along with The Selecter, The Beat, Madness, etc). The real bluebeat is much older.
