    That's it!! Cheers T_T.

    I know that the character was based on Pete Tosh from the wailers, but do you know where the name came from?

    By the way, the "Beat Girl" logo (as seen in the flyer) was based on some bird called Margaret:

  8. oh. I sort of hoped that it was Neville Staples mate who was a bit of a wide boy. Thanks for the info though.
  9. Them were the days, No.2, harrington jacket, loafers, white socks, stay-press trousers half way up your shins.

    As well as The Specials, don't forget Madness, The Beat, Desmond Dekker, Prince Buster, Selecter.
