Interesting site came my way today – the 2 Tone Archive gallery.
The photos were all taken between February 28th – May 3rd 1980 by Toni Tye for a proposed book on 2 Tone at the rehearsals & the gigs for the ‘Dance Craze’ film. Rather than traditional gig shots, the images focused on the crowd and the bands backstage.
Most of the images have been hidden away from then until 2005, but are now on display in Coventry after a recent exhibition in Brighton.
However, to save on the bus fare, you can view many of the photos online now. Visit: http://www.tonitye.com
– you can also order large copies of any that take your fancy.
