Bombskare present: 40 Years Of 2 Tone Records

Saturday, 20 Apr at 7 PM

We celebrate the 40th anniversary of ska’s most iconic imprint, 2 Tone, in the company of Edinburgh nine piece Bombskare, who will play a range of classic hits from across the label's four decade lifespan.

Originally founded by Jerry Dammers of the ska revival band the Specials in 1979, 2 Tone’s reggae-influenced music with a punk rock and pop music overtone spawned the 2 Tone music and cultural movement, which was popular among skinheads, rudies and some mod revivalists.

Artists associated with the label included The Specials, Elvis Costello, Madness, Bad Manners and more.
