PAMA INTERNATIONAL: Float Like A Butterfly: CD

Jun 29, 2007

Former members of the Specials, Madness, the Paul Weller Band, and Special Beat get together to record—what else?—an album’s worth of ska, rocksteady, and dub. The results are, for the most part, entertaining, if not quite as memorable or incendiary as their former bands’ work, and a few of the tunes (“Man Bites Dog,” for instance) show a bit of the old spark still exists in there somewhere.
