Comments

  1. The Specials were a British ska revival band who in the late-'70s and early-'80s were at the forefront of the UK 2 Tone movement. This song, which is a track from their self-titled debut album, was written by their guitarist Roddy Radiation about his experiences growing up in a Coventry council house.

  3. Produced by Elvis Costello, the album captures the disaffection and anger felt by the youth of the UK's "concrete jungle"—a phrase borrowed from Bob Marley's album Catch a Fire but equally apposite used here to describe the grim, violent inner cities of s Britain. The album features a mixture of original material and several covers of classic Jamaican ska tracks, a debt which went uncredited .

  7. Oct 31,  · Always thought this song (as with most of the album) sounded much better live, whether when Terry used to sing it or when Roddy's been singing it recently. The Skabs do a great live version. Now we've solved the 'Concrete Jungle' mystery - what the hell is .
