MORGAN HOWELL : "Gangsters" by The Specials

MORGAN HOWELL : "Gangsters" by The Specials


Signed limited edition print of "Gangsters" by The Specials from British artist Morgan Howell, taken from his original large format paintings, SuperSizeArt, featuring classic 7 inch singles.

Artist notes : In 1979, Jerry Dammers formed 2 Tone Records and The Special AKA released their debut single ‘Gangsters’, a reworking of Prince Buster's ska hit ‘Al Capone’. The song became a Top 10 hit in 1979. The Specials recorded their debut LP in 1979, produced by Elvis Costello. The album lead off with Dandy Livingstone's ‘Rudy, A Message to You’ (slightly reworded) and also had Prince Buster and Toots & The Maytals covers from the late 1960s. In 1980, the EP ‘Too Much Too Young’ (credited to The Special AKA) was a number one hit in the UK Singles Chart, despite controversy over the song's lyrics, which reference teen pregnancy and promote contraception.
