The Specials - A Message To You, Rudy

We first heard this track on the nothing-short-of-fantastic soundtrack to Grosse Point Blank, which was produced by Joe Strummer. The second disc of the soundtrack was a who's-who of 70's and 80's indie rock, and The Specials were in there alongside the likes of The Pixies, Siouxsie And The Banshees, and The Pogues. We're more than willing to admit it took us a while to get into the lilting beats and unison vocals, but when we finally did, we were hooked. This is some good shit.

wow, uh, either you guys don't know much about music or just woke from a 30-year coma.

Hmm...well...that soundtrack came out in '97, so make it a 20 year coma. Plus, yeah, we're total fucking idiots around here. It's part of our image.
