Two Tone Gone Ska! Hear Dave Barker on BBC6 Music

21 August 2012

Marc Radcliffe had Dave Barker (from Dave & Ansel Collins and guest on our album) on his
BBC6 show yesterday. Brilliant long interview, which included him playing 'I Can't Stand Up For Falling Down' fromthe new Phoenix City All-Stars 'Two Tone Gone Ska' album. You can hear it again for the next 6 days here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01m0m7t (starts around 1hr37min)

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).

Release Date: 03/09/2012: Pre-order your CD copy here

& here's the trailer for the Phoenix City All-Stars forthcoming debut album. Hope you like it! PHOENIX CITY ALL-STARS - TWO TONE GONE SKA!
