Hi everyone,

As I mentioned back in September, I'd spoken to the elusive Barry Jones about his involvement with 2 Tone, I have now published the interview in the latest "2 Tone - Before, During & After" fanzine. 

My conversation with Barry was fascinating and he revealed so much about his life and career that I struggled to fit it all into the zine. 

As some of you are probably aware, Barry was John Bradbury's brother-in-law so that was how he came to be involved with playing on "The Kingston Affair" (later to become The Selecter" in 1977. He also featured on "Celebrate The Bullet" in 1981. 

Barry also granted me access to some family photos which appear in the zine as well. I have attached one of Barry's wedding in 1962, with a very young John Bradbury! I was fascinated by these photos. 

Barry's story can be read in Issue 6 of the fanzine which is available from me for £3 if anyone is interested.

If you're interested, please get in touch or pay £3 (as Family & Friends payment if possible!) to my PayPal: 

Hopefully this interview has helped to fill in some of the gaps in the 2 Tone story and also shine a light on 2 Tone's mystery man!
