We are delighted to welcome Jerry Dammers back to the bolt for a DJ set !
Founder of The Specials and 2 Tone Records, Dammers was hugely influential in the 70s and 80s ska revival, achieving seven consecutive UK top 10 singles between 1979 and 1981, including number ones “Ghost Town” and “Too Much Too Young”. An anti-apartheid campaigner, Dammers wrote the song “Free Nelson Mandela”, and went on to receive a South African national honour in April 2014 for his role in the movement.
