My ex-wife at that time worked at Coventry Sports Centre and watched the film being made in the bridge link from the swimming baths. Later another film was used which was a bit less surreal, with the band driving around a derelict city.
This was the video and it was all filmed in London
That was the other film I was referring to, the derelict city one which I've seen many times. The one filmed at Coventry Sports Centre was used when the record was launched, I believe, but that one was used on TOTP etc.

Very sad to hear about Brad. Here he is in action at the Horizon Studios on Warwick Road. RIP indeed. Edited by member, 30th Dec 2015 12:17 am

My wife and I have recently visited the Coventry Music Museum in Ball Hill. I can thoroughly recommend it, particularly if you were young in the 2 Tone era (a bit too late for me) but also if you want to see a good cross section of Coventry music memorabilia from Frank Ifield up to some more modern stuff. Only £3 to get in (£2 for concessions) and there is a cafe downstairs and all of the varied Ball Hall shops to visit as well. The museum staff are very well informed and extremely friendly.

'All or Nothing' Scooter Club (named after the Small Faces Mod Group song) is the main one in Coventry. The light blue Scooter with the Walt Jabsco figure on the front panel was/is being raffled in the Two-Tone Village. Thumbs up

Went to see the musical about The Small Faces, All or Nothing, at the Belgrade Theatre a few weeks ago.The Scooter boys were out in force and it was a great night's entertainment.

Always sad to hear such news, 62 is no age these days. I wonder if any readers of early memories of 2-Tone bands, perhaps of seeing the original Specials line up which included John Bradbury, and how the music grabbed them or maybe seeing them drinking in the Albany or some other Cov watering holes. Would love to hear from you and thanks in advance. Best wishes to all. Ruth

Hi folks, hope you're keeping warm. Having launched my Dirty Stop Outs book on 1970s Coventry, I'm now doing one on the 1980s. 2 Tone was going strong at the start of the decade and lots happening around the music, politics, fashions etc. I'd love to hear from anyone with memories, stories, pictures to share for the new book. Do get in touch when you've got a minute! Thanks a lot in advance, Ruth Thumbs up
