The fourth book in the Etch & Pin book range is our take on the story behind 2 Tone Records; the Coventry record label behind The Specials and The Selecter which inspired many ska bands around the world!
"We start with Jerry Dammers,
Playing keyboard in his flat.
With The Specials and the 2 Tone label,
He put Coventry on the map."
With 28 pages featuring amazing artwork by Alex Bagaian - who captures iconic images of The Specials, Madness, and The Selecter - the book celebrates what is known as the city's biggest export.
Although created with children in mind, the book makes a brilliant read for all ages and will bring back memories of Coventry in the 1980's for every 2 Tone and The Specials fan!
"Regardless of the colour of your skin,
You could be part of the 2 Tone club.
Many nights in Coventry,
Were spent dancing in the pub."
As with all of our products, we are supporting a local cause and £1 from every book sold will go towards books for the Coventry Music Museum to sell at the museum.
"The legacy of 2 Tone,
Still lives on to this day.
A visit to the Coventry Music Museum,
Completes your Coventry stay!"
