The Neville Staple Band ‘Put Away Your Knives’ (Official Music Video)
A Message To You From Rudy: The Original Rude Boy Neville Staple defies growing wave of violence on new ‘Put Away Your Knives’ single.
2Tone legend (and co-founder of The Specials, Fun Boy Three and the Special Beat with Ranking Roger). ‘Put Away Your Knives’ is the new single from The Neville Staple Band and it features Sugary Staple as well as Jamaican-British ska/reggae legend Dandy Livingstone (who you’ll know best as author of The Specials‘ hit ‘A Message To You, Rudy’). This punky ska and reggae mix has on-point lyrics addressing the growing knife crime problem in the UK – a lyrical and musical cry to young people involved in knife crime, motivated by a tragic event that struck their family in September 2018 – the fatal stabbing of Neville’s 21-year-old grandson Fidel Glasgow.
