The ABC News web music series Amplified today posted a nearly eight-minute segment on The Specials, presumably filmed last week while the reunited ska legends were in New York City for a pair of shows to cap off their very brief U.S. tour. The piece features fresh interviews with singer Terry Hall (discussing his manic depression), as well as guitarist Lynval Golding and bassist Sir Horace Gentleman, and live footage both old and new. Enjoy.
