The Specials Re-unite!

Wow. After years of...okay at best individual members touring on the group's iconic status with backing bands, it looks like we're going to be getting the real thing. Of course, Terry Hall notes that it is some time off, “Well we’re still trying to put dates together, but hopefully September/ October time. We need to spend the Summer rehearsing… I think it’s taken me 30 years to realise we could do it really well.”
While this is awesome news (and remember, kids Madness is back, too), keep in mind that it might just take a miracle to get these guys to venture across the pond to any place that isn't overrun with hipsters, record labels, and general douchebags. Fingers crossed, though.
