After Hours: Ska-turday Edition!

The Specials. Gangsters

Golly, the Specials are looking mighty sweaty in this clip. Well, they did quite a lot of jumping around back in the day. These days, they're still kinda-sorta together, but they don't move as fast. Anyhow, this tune is from their "Ghost Town" phase. Somebody in the band discovered the harmonic minor scale and the rest is history. This is part of that history. Unfortunately, there were no more scales for them to discover after this one.
