Glen Smyth: I notice a New Zealand date has been added to your tour. Does this suggest other parts of the world can expect a visit from The Specials? I know the Yanks are hoping they get a visit.Smyth also asks about the lack of new songs in the current Specials set list:
Roddy Radiation: There are a few places in the world we haven't played! New Zealand will be interesting. America is calling and we may try to fit a few dates in at the end of the year if we are still standing!
GS: Madness has had some recent success with the release of new material. Are there any plans for The Specials to do some new songs?I wonder how this will work out without Dammers involved...
RR: I have plenty of new songs and I know some of the other guys have too, but we will have to do some demos and discuss what is right for the band next year, which could be problematic.
