The Special AKA: 26,732 Hours In The Studio with Jerry Dammers

Gavin Martin, New Musical Express, 18 August 1984

JERRY DAMMERS didn't have much sleep last night. Well into the small hours of the morning he'd been labouring over a hot Hammond organ in a makeshift recording studio in his South London flat. He'd been composing a short soundrack for a race riot in Julien Temple's forthcoming film Absolute Beginners.
