    The Specials and the Heyday of Houston Ska

    They co-existed with the punks and the non-racist skins in harmony (somewhat). Drinking always played a big part in scuffles. The skins had more in common with the rude boys, tracing their true lineage back to the youth cult in England in the late '6...
