Description

Originally published to great critical acclaim in 2004 by Helter Skelter Publishing, Wheels Out of Gear is a vivid exploration of the 2-Tone movement of the late 1970s and early 1980s, set against the turbulent backdrop of Thatcher's Britain.

Taking its roots from Caribbean Ska, Rock Steady and Reggae, the 2-Tone sound was honed into a modern urban multi-racial groove led by The Specials, whose 2-Tone record label gave the movement its name and a home to many of the groups of the time, such as The Selecter and Madness.
