'Ghost Town' is 30 years old!

Feels weird to think that the legendary Specials song 'Ghost Town' has just turned 30. The song is more than relevant still today, the subjects covered in the song played their part in mobilizing a lot of people around the country in mass social unrest. It truly was an era defining song.

Growing up in Coventry it was clear the place never got over the 'Ghost Town' title, the youth culture in that city is given no attention. As much as I love the place you cant help feel frustrated at its progression.

Still got mad love for the people!
