Rhoda Dakar began her musical career as lead vocalist with all-female 2tone band, the Bodysnatchers.
They only ever released two singles, ‘Let’s do rocksteady’ and ‘Easy life’. after a year together they split and Rhoda went on to guest with the Specials in Europe and the USA, having featured on their second album, ‘more Specials’, for which she won the first of her seven gold records. After their demise, and before joining Jerry Dammers’ new project, she recorded the Bodysnatchers’ first original song, ‘the Boiler’, a harrowing tale of date rape, which was inevitably banned. The Special aka spent the next two years recording ‘in the studio’, spawning a top ten hit with ‘Free Nelson Mandela’.
