This week the big hitters of the Second Wave of SKA pleed for your votes

THE SPECIALS
Leaders of the 2-Tone movement. Coventry's finest musical export since the one tha came before it. Sung songs about teenage pregnancy, James Bond and having a good time. Later spawned Special AKA, Fun Boy Three, Colourfield, Vegas, Terry.Blair & Anoushka, and, err, Terry Hall!

MADNESS
Caaaaaaaahm-den's finest 7 piece. One of the bggest selling singles bands of the 80's. Sung about Contraception, Michale Caine, ill fitting pants and heart attacks. Later spawned The Fink Brothers, The Madness, Voice Of The Beehive and, err, Suggs.

Finally went for The Specials, too, for the same reasons maian noted. And more. Childhood crush on Suggsy - and his ace line reading of "You hum it and I'll smash your face in" - notwithstanding. wink.gif
