Specials guitarist, Roddy Byers, aka Roddy Radiation, takes his band, the Skabilly Rebels, to the Zombie Hut in Corby this weekend.

Byers has stepped away from the side of the stage with The Specials and into the centre spotlight as the frontman and guitarist of the band.

Skabilly Rebels is the next phase of a formula he has been working on since he stepped into the recording studio with the Specials back in the 1980s, a fusion of the driving rhythm of ska and the gritty, hard edge of rockabilly.

The band released their debut album, Blues Attack, in 2009.

Support is by Derby ska/punk band Addictive Philosophy. They play on Saturday, June 1.

Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets cost £8 in advance or £10 on the door. For more details visit www.facebook.com/skabillyrebels.
