  25. The Specials took me back to y teenage years, especially A message To You Rudy. I have to say though, that the Melbourne Ska Orchestra beat the Specials at their own game.

    Some awesome clips here. I’m going to enjopy going through them. 🙂 Will you go next year?

  2. Sainter says:

    “enjopy”?? Make that enjoy. 🙂

  3. jrbsays says:

    I would certainly love to, just need to see what all various tribe members are up to first. Hopefully the Byron Council will not get their amendments through which would mean Bluesfest couldn’t go ahead. Grrrrrrrr
