"Specialized 2: Beat Teenage Cancer"

Last year's must have compilation, "Specialized: A Modern Take On The Specials" not only raised over £25,000 for the charity Teenage Cancer Research, but also came runner up in a recent poll for the best ska or reggae album of 2012. This week Paul Willo unveiled a provisional list of the acts involved in his follow-up project Specialized 2: Beat Teenage Cancer. All the bands mentioned below are recording a special cover version of a song made famous by 80's legends The Beat.
The band's front man Dave Wakeling (pictured above) says: "These songs have been a big part of my life and I am honored they could be of use to the Specialized project, a wonderful opportunity to assist a worthy cause, The Teenage Cancer Trust."
