2Rude were excellent, the Skatalites a little patchySouth Wales support band 2Rude played a non-stop hour of ska, Madness, 2 tone and reggae that had virtually the whole audience dancing. Great fun.
The Skatalites rather traded on reputation. The first third of their act was less than enthralling although maybe serious fans of ska would have liked the resurrection of early, less known, numbers. The second third, with a lady singer whose voice was difficult to hear in the mix, was not an improvement. Only after this did the gig really take off. Or maybe by the time I was drinking the third can of RedStripe, things seemed better!.
