Legendary ska outfit the Specials—who are getting the band back together for a few appearances at shows during the upcoming months—appeared on TV for the first time since 1981 the other night, when they performed on Later With Jools Holland; they performed “A Message To You Rudy” (above) and “Gangsters” on the show. Unfortunately their tour doesn’t look like it’s coming to the U.S. just yet, although it does look like they have next weekend open, and Coachella hasn’t announced any surprise ticket-sales-goosing acts for Saturday or Sunday yet… [YouTube via The Tripwire]
