Fred Perry Presents Terry Hall Retrospective Featuring Members Of The Specials & Lightning Seeds

Oh to live in London! Fred Perry recently hosted a Terry Hall Retrospective in conjunction with London Fashion week in early January. The invitation only event featured Hall backed by his band mates from The Specials -- Horace Panter on bass and John Bradbury on drums -- and also featured Ian Broudie (guitar) and Angie Pollock (piano) from The Lightning Seeds. Hall and Broudie collaborated on a number of sings in the early and mid-90's including the track "Sense" (which featured Hall on the song and the video) reaching No. 31 on the UK Singles Chart in 1992.

Hall's set included songs from The Specials, Fun Boy Three and Colourfield, as well as tracks from some of his favourite songwriters and artists (Talking Heads "Heaven") which demonstrated the depth and breadth of his musical interests, capabilities and inspirations.

Here is the set list:

One Of Those Things
Alabama Song
Our Lips Are Sealed
A Message To You Rudy

Check out edited footage of the band's entire performance as well as full clips of "Sense" and "Our Lips Are Sealed" below.
