From punks hanging around outside BOY and Worlds End, Mods in London and Ska girls in Coventry, to Joe Strummer backstage and the Specials in Southend, Janette Beckman captured the birth of the most explosive British subculture of all time.
2 Tone Records was an English record label that mostly released ska and reggae influenced music with a punk rock and pop music overtone. Jerry Dammers of the ska revival band The Specials started the record label in 1979. It spawned the 2 Tone music and cultural movement, which was popular among skinheads, rudies and some mod revivalists. The label stopped operating in 1986.
