THE ULTIMATE MOD / SKA XMAS PARTY
SECRET AFFAIR + THE NEVILLE STAPLE BAND
Secret Affair formed in 1978 from their previous incarnation as the “power pop” band New Hearts. In a period of a little over two years, they posted five releases in the UK Singles Chart, and released three albums. The debut single "Time For Action" reached number 13 in the UK chart, putting them at the forefront of the mod revival movement. More chart success followed with "Let Your Heart Dance", "My World", "Do you know" and "Sound Of Confusion". They also drew up plans for a smart-dressing youth movement - "The Glory Boys" – based around the idea of 1960s gangster chic, influenced by the movie, "Performance."
The thirty-five year career of Neville Staple in the music business is well documented. Best known for his work writing songs and sharing lead vocal duties for The Specials, and as one of the founding members of Fun Boy Three, Neville Staple is credited with changing the face of pop music not once but twice. Expect to hear songs from his latest album "Return of Judge Roughneck" alongside Ska classics and songs from The Specials such as "Message To You Rudy", "Gangsters" and more.
