Horace Panter - Artist, Bass Player "Sir Horace Gentleman"

Horace’s influences are diverse and range from the Pop Art paraphernalia of artists such as Peter Blake, Andy Warhol and Robert Indiana to the depictions of light in paintings by Edward Hopper and David Hockney. Although most of his career has been defined by music (as the bass player in The Specials), Horace graduated in 1975 with a degree in Fine Art from what was then called the ‘Lanchester Polytechnic’ in Coventry (now Coventry University). It was there that he first met Jerry Dammers and the concept of the punk/ska band materialised. He has been exhibiting in the UK since 2009 and in 2015 exhibited his work in Los Angeles and New York for the first time.

“ Enjoy Yourself” is Carl Sigman and Herb Magidson’s 1940 chestnut, performed by the champagne King Guy Lombardo, it was given the royal seal of approval with Prince Buster’s “Enjoy It”, before enjoying itself immensely at The Specials ‘hands’

Horizon Studios

The Rocket public house in Coventry bears the plaque that should have been located on Horizon Studios, sadly the studios and indeed the building that housed them has long gone. Horizon studios was very much the tangible face of 2-Tone during its rise to fame. It was here that The Specials first vinyl outing “Gangsters” and their second album “More Specials” were recorded. Bad Manners and The Selecter also recorded here. The Rocket provided liquid lunches between long recording sessions. The exact locations of the studios are opposite the Rocket, where the bollards to the entrance road to Central Six now lie.
