THE SPECIAL BOYS

And are joined on stage by a very 'special' guest…

The Ordinary Boys were joined by a special guest on stage at their CAMDEN show in LONDON last night (October 14).

Former Specials frontman Terry Hall joined the band with TV funnyman Phil Jupitus to perform ‘Little Bitch’ at the Electric Ballroom.

It is the first time in over 20 years that Hall has sang a Specials song on stage.

Singer Preston made the surprise announcement half-way through the show when he shouted to the crowd: “I have been looking forward to doing this all night. Go more nuts than you’ve ever gone in your life for Terry Hall from Specials.

Hall sang the first verse and Jupitus took up the vocal duties on the second before Preston joined in during the chorus.

During the show, which was watched by supermodel Kate Moss, Preston also dedicated rare track ‘So Charming’ to 20 fans who flew over from Japan especially to see the band perform.

The singer urged the audience to “go for it” before he ended the show with album track ‘Robots And Monkeys’.

Speaking to NME.COM after the performance, Preston said: “I wouldn’t be doing music if it wasn’t for people like Terry Hall. I have been so excited and nervous which is unusual for me because I have never felt nervous before until this gig. But he almost felt humbled to do this gig too. So its absolutely bizarre. But it was brilliant, I really enjoyed it.

“Phil Jupitus singing was good too because he kind of goes hand in hand with our group these days. Not in a celebrity way but because he is a real music fella and I have a huge amount of respect for him.”

Speaking about Kate Moss’ appearance, Preston joked: “Well I suppose that makes us officially cool.”

The singer also praised the group’s Japanese fans for flying over to see the band perform.

“They are brilliant. They are fucking lovely. They are well into their music. We were really pleased to have them here tonight,” he added.
