Its 25 years since Britpop, and 40 years since Two Tone and the last real music scene that meant more than great music! It was a lifestyle, a way of life and an attitude that hasn’t been replicated since!
However, if Suggs was to bump into Ian Dury, Damon Albarn and Ray Davies and embark on a dance craze through Punk, Ska, Two Tone and Brit pop you'd have The Communicators!
The Comms (as they were dubbed by this ever-growing faithful following) borrow shamelessly from artists like Madness, The Kinks, Small Faces, The Specials, Blur and The Blockheads without losing their own identity.
The blend of harmonious, brass drenched SKA tunes is a mix of Madness esc popism with crafted lyrics that Dury himself would be happy to have penned.
It’s unmistakably British yet accessible to the US, playful, obvious where it needs to be yet unafraid of going into unexpected places when the mood takes em!
