The Specials - October 2016

A long awaited return of The Specials to FashioNation.   Neville Staple had stopped in 20 years ago but this time was 'Special' ;)  we traded some super cool Dr. Martens for tickets and the VIP treatment!  (stylish choice, Neville picked some rare Grey Crocodile Gibsons)  We got their contact info from Echo & the Bunnymen's tour manager.  It can be hard to get a hold of these bands, sometimes they won't answer band unless it comes from a trusted source.

Our Lips are Sealed!

Back in 2011 we had the Go-Go's in the shop.  I asked Jane Wiedlin to sign my copy of Fun Boy Three's 'Waiting' as she co-wrote "Our Lips are Sealed" with Terry Hall.  Never thought i'd get the chance to have Terry sign it too, but with this visit with The Specials, it all came full circle!

The Specials - Rock Star Boot

More boots for the collection  The boys from The Specials signed up this vintage pair of Fluevog Dr. Martens.. there is probably only a few stores in the US that even knew Fluevog used DM soles...  and yes, they are from our shop!

The Specials - Signature Wall

the first time in for Neville Staple from the Specials.  He popped in back in 1988 when they hit town for a show at Fiddlers Green, KTCL's Big Adventure
