Two Tone Gone Ska - Phoenix City All-Stars

Two Tone Gone Ska
2 Tone Records debt to 1960's Jamaican music is vast. Without the likes of Toots & The Maytals, Prince Buster and The Pioneers, 2 Tone's stars The Specials, Madness, The Selecter, The Beat and The Bodysnatchers would not only be void of a huge part of their sets, but the genre that checkered the national would be an all-together different affair.

With this in mind Phoenix City All-Stars present a truly unique celebration of one of Britain's most iconic labels. Taking some of 2 Tone's greatest songs and replanting in 1960's Jamaica, the resulting tracks are truly authentic sounding Blazing 60's ska, akin to The Skatalites, rocksteady and early reggae. Wonderfully inspired interpretations, performed by an all-star band plus legendary guest vocalists Dave Barker (the voice of Dave & Ansell Collins) and AJ Franklin (The Federals and The Chosen Few).

Press:

"Anyone who covers 'Ghost Town' has to be brave but Flowerdew knows and loves this genre so well that there are few better qualified." - Andy Peart, Vive Le Rock, Nov/Dec 2012.

"...prepare for a nostalgia fest as the very capable Phoenix City All-stars revisit songs like One Step Beyond, The Prince and Tears Of A Clown." - John Masouri, Echoes
