Various Dance Craze


Various Dance Craze


The film gives it's audience no time to catch their breath, cutting from one song to the next in the bat of an eye, this is where backstage footage could have vastly improved the movie. In all there are 27 songs counting 2 versions of Nite Klub , of which 6 come from Camdens finest, and 5 from the Specials.

A soundtrack LP was issued on 2-Tone Records to coincide with the release, although some of the tracks are different recordings than those featured in the film.

Half way through the film there is a somewhat odd intermission, black and white footage featuring old dances such as the Locomotion, the Twist and so on appears, maybe fitting in with the films theme, but hardly appealing to the 2-Tone audience who would pay at the door. The film eventually opened in Sheffield on February the 15th , by which time the initial 2-Tone boom had, inevitably, died down.

The soundtrack album spent 15 weeks on the chart reaching a high of number 5, underlining the fact that 2-Tone was not a spent force, a fact that was further verified that troubled summer when the Specials released 'Ghost Town'.

The film was released on home video by Chrysalis in and, if not as good as it should have been, is still an invaluable document of the bands live performances, which is where most of the SkaTone bands excelled.
