I’m wondering now…

August 12th, 2016

My Teflon website has been up for 7 years now since The Specials reformed and started touring again in 2009. It has been a celebration of all things 2 Tone and the small part of my involvement back in the day. I am pleased to have been at the start and concept of the  Folkestone Skabour Festival with it’s success each year although it did go through some stormy waters, but is now on an even keel, with a great team of local ska, rocksteady and reggae luvvers (the Ska Co-op) and at its home of the Grand Burstin Hotel at Folkestone Harbour and as a community not-for-profit event. I have met some great new friends on this new 2 Tone adventure and greatly honoured to have designed again artworks for The Selecter. It has brought me the opportunities of new album sleeves to design and artwork for some of the great Jamaican singers, musicians and producers ie Bunny Striker Lee, Lee Scratch Perry, Yabby You, Horace Andy, Dennis Bovell etc for Pressure Sounds. But with the intervention of a few things this website will change or move on. There will be a gallery of all the related Teflon 2 Tone works I was in involved with that bring happy memories for all us along this journey from ‘79. I will be pleased also to discuss those works with your enquires.
