"Enjoy yourself" the Specials sing, part ironic, part mourning on their second album of 1980. It's later than you think”... The year came to an end with the music of the white boys showing strange signs of lyrical impotence. 1980 in British music was the year of tribes and tendencies.

January 1, 1981
