Ghost Town (40th Anniversary Half Speed Master) - 1

Ghost Town (40th Anniversary Half Speed Master)

£20.99

Released: 4th June 2021. The Specials are one of the defining bands of the late '70s/early '80s, combining Jamaican ska and Rocksteady with the energy of punk and launching a whole Ska Revival which paved the way for fellow likeminded bands Madness, The Beat and The Selecter to release their first singles. Having had seven top 10 singles and two Gold albums over the course of two years, the band released Jerry Dammers' 'Ghost Town' in June 1981, backed by Lynval Goldings' 'Why?' and the Terry Hall-penned 'Friday Night, Saturday Morning'. This 40th Anniversary Edition has been mastered and cut at half-speed by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios using the original production tapes for optimum audio quality.

Additional information about this, The Specials vinyl art.

The Specials – The Artist

The Specials, also known as The Special AKA, are an English 2 Tone and ska revival band formed in 1977 in Coventry. After some early changes, the first stable lineup of the group consisted of Terry Hall and Neville Staple on vocals, Lynval Golding and Roddy Radiation on guitars, Horace Panter on bass, Jerry Dammers on keyboards, John Bradbury on drums, and Dick Cuthell and Rico Rodriguez on horns. Their music combines a “danceable ska and rocksteady beat with punk’s energy and attitude”. Lyrically, they present a “more focused and informed political and social stance”. The band had a particular look and wore mod-style “1960s period rude boy outfits (pork pie hats, tonic and mohair suits and loafers)”

Ghost Town – The Song

‘Ghost Town’ is a song by the 2-Tone and ska band, The Specials. The song Ghost Town addresses themes of urban decay, deindustrialisation, unemployment and violence in inner cities, the song is remembered for being a hit at the same time as riots were occurring in British cities. Internal tensions within the band were also coming to a head when the single was being recorded, resulting in the song being the last single recorded by the original seven members of the group before splitting up. However, the song Ghost Town was hailed by the contemporary UK music press as a major piece of popular social commentary.

Human Skull – The Shape

Modelled into a silhouette of a Human Skull. The human skull is the bony structure that forms the head in the human skeleton. It supports the structures of the face and forms a cavity for the brain. Like the skulls of other vertebrates, it protects the brain from injury.

I have purchased quite a few vinyl art as birthday, Christmas and Father’s Day gift in the past years. Never disappointed. My dad always loves his gifts.

Great service - easy to order

Really pleased with the whole experience.

We met Kenny and Lesley a few years ago in St Albans and have purchased several pictures over the years. We recently ordered on line and I was amazed that our order arrived the next day. Kenny goes above and beyond to get the pictures just right, amazing service and great artistry.

Very fast delivery

The website was easy to use, customer service was fantastic with prompt replies to any emails I sent and delivery was on time 😊

Had a bit of a mix up with payment ( my old age!) but Kenny was helpful and although it was Xmas and he was very busy - arrived quickly and it was really well appreciated

Website easy to navigate and delivery speed good.

Fantastic communication and exceptional delivery timescales

As Navalny vanishes from view in Russia, an ally calls it a Kremlin ploy to deepen his isolation

ghost town specials vinyl single

By The Associated Press

Posted Dec 12, 2023 09:07:56 AM.

Last Updated Dec 12, 2023 12:15:54 PM.

MOSCOW (AP) — The loss of contact with Alexei Navalny at the prison colony where the opposition leader was being held likely signals a Kremlin effort to tighten his isolation while President Vladimir Putin runs for reelection over the next three months, Navalny’s spokeswoman said Tuesday.

Worries about Navalny spread Monday after officials at the facility east of Moscow said he was no longer on the inmate roster. Navalny’s spokeswoman Kira Yarmysh said his associates and lawyers have been unable to contact him for a week. Prison officials said he has been moved from the colony where he has been serving a 19-year term on charges of extremism, but they didn’t say where he went.

Prison transfers in Russia are notoriously secretive, with authorities providing no information about the whereabouts of inmates for weeks until they reach another facility and are given permission to contact relatives or lawyers.

“We now have to look for him in every colony of special regime in Russia,” Yarmysh told The Associated Press. “And there are about 30 of them all over Russia. So we have no idea in which one we will find him.”

She noted that “they can transfer a prisoner for weeks or even for months, and no one will know where he is.”

Russia’s Federal Penitentiary Service did not immediately respond to an AP request for comment about Navalny’s possible transfer and whereabouts. Earlier this year, another prominent opposition figure, Andrei Pivovarov, also went missing during a prison transfer . His transfer, from a detention center in Russia’s southern region of Krasnodar to a penal colony in the northwestern region of Karelia , took about a month.

Once at a new facility, prison officials there are legally obliged to notify relatives or lawyers within 10 days, but Yarmysh said they can hardly be expected to follow the rules in Navalny’s case.

She said the authorities will likely try to keep Navalny’s location secret for as long as they can after Putin on Friday declared his intention to seek another six-year term in the March 17 election, moving to extend his rule of over two decades.

“They will try to hide him as long as possible,” Yarmysh said. “I guess this was made deliberately to isolate Alexei during this period of time so he wouldn’t be able to influence all these things in any way, because everyone understands — and Putin, of course, understands — that Alexei is his main rival, even despite the fact that he is not on the ballot.”

Asked Tuesday where Navalny is, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov snapped that “we have neither a desire nor an opportunity to track down inmates.”

Commenting on U.S. expressions of concern about Navalny, Peskov said in a conference call with reporters that he has been convicted and is serving his sentence, adding that “we consider any interference, including by the United States, inadmissible.”

Navalny, 47, has been behind bars since January 2021, when he was arrested upon his return from Germany where he had recuperated from nerve agent poisoning that he blamed on the Kremlin. Navalny, who campaigned against official corruption and organized major anti-government protests, has rejected all charges against him as a politically motivated vendetta.

Navalny has been serving his sentence at the Penal Colony No. 6, in the town of Melekhovo in the Vladimir region, about 230 kilometers (140 miles) east of Moscow. He was due to be transferred to a penal colony with an even higher level of security.

The loss of contact with Navalny was particularly worrying, given that he recently fell ill, Yarmysh said. She said prison officials had given him an IV drip when he felt dizzy and he had to lie on the floor of his cell.

“It looks like it might have been a faint from hunger because he isn’t being fed properly and he doesn’t have any ventilation in his cell and he doesn’t have any like proper exercise time,” Yarmysh said.

While Putin’s reelection is all but certain, given his overwhelming control over the country’s political scene and a widening crackdown on dissent, Navalny’s supporters and other critics hope to use the campaign to erode public support for the Kremlin leader and his military action in Ukraine.

Authorities could try to send Navalny to a remote colony to further limit his influence, Yarmysh said. Since the start of his imprisonment, he has continued his scathing attacks on the Kremlin in comments his associates posted to social media.

“I guess they decided that it would be smarter for them to send him as far away because he’s still too loud and too present in the public field,” Yarmysh said.

The Specials are one of the defining bands of the late 70's/early 80's along with Jerry Dammers iconic label Two Tone Records. They combined Jamaican ska and Rocksteady mixed with the energy of punk and launched a whole Ska Revival which paved the way for fellow likeminded bands Madness, The Beat and The Selecter to release their first singles.Having had seven top 10 singles and two Gold albums over the course of two years, the band released Jerry Dammers' Ghost Town in June 1981, backed by Lynval Goldings' Why? and the Terry Hall penned Friday Night Saturday Morning. The beginnings of the song were written around the closure of the Larcano dancehall in Coventry, but also reflecting what was happening in other towns and cities with urban decay, unemployment and ongoing racial tensions of the period. Themes which are still relevant today.The single, which was recently voted the second greatest UK single of all time by Alexis Petridis in the Guardian, reached Number One in the UK singles charts and stayed there for a further 3 weeks, becoming one of the biggest selling singles of 1981 and has remained one of the classic UK singles of all.This 40th Anniversary Edition has been mastered and cut at half-speed by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios using the original production tapes for optimum audio quality. Presented in a new 3mm 7" spined sleeve, using the original iconic artwork and featuring the 2Tone 40th Anniversary Bellyband.
