Performing "Too Much Too Young" on "The Old Grey Whistle Test". Despite everything. this became a UK No1 single in January 1980.
A two-tone photo montage accompanies "Stereotype" from the second album, "More Specials".
Another single from the second album - "Rat Race". This was out just as I was sitting my first set of important exams, but I think I managed to block the message!
Great video, with most of the band dressed up as a schoolmaster of one subject or other.
The Specials have just reformed (minus Jerry Dammers unfortunately) and are currently on a sold-out tour. They guested recently on Jools Holland's "Later" show on BBC2.
