Rocksteady to both a visual and musical documentary of the big shot's of the English 2-Tone movement of the late 1970s that has the exhaustive, high-energy performances exploding onto stage. Jump, shout, twist and crawl and dance to the tunes of Ska and its anthems of its rough riders and three-minute heroes captivated in the moment of a generation of England's concrete jungles and razor blade alley's. No longer on your radio but now on stage, together, with the likes of Madness, The Specials and The Beat et al, this concert footage of an era is a must-see, rare and fascinating look into a once vibrant youth culture of working-class England and its musical dance craze.

[to the crowd]
Right, who here gets up at seven o'clock in the morning? Do you work in factories? Are you ever 3 minutes late? You'll like this one then..."Three Minute Hero".

This riveting, exciting, melloneous film is about the coming and going of '2-tone ska' in Britain. After the First wave of ska (bob marley, skatalites) ska attacked Europe with the second wave. With live performances from like the Specials, the Selecter, Bad Manners, Madness, the Beat, and the Bodysnatchers, this documentary is amazing. If you are new to ska and want to know where it all came from, or if you are a veteran and you just want to re-live these exciting moments, check out this film. I'm sure you can find it, somewhere.
