Three Minute Heroes - The Photo Call

Posted on 28 August 2014

With just a few short weeks until Three Minute Heroes returns to rock the B2 stage, what better way to pay homage to the era that put Coventry on the musical map than with a photo call set against the backdrop of our very own ‘concrete jungle’!

From Toni Tye to Chalkie Davies, the photography of the 2 Tone era is almost as iconic as the music itself and that’s exactly what we set out to recreate in our latest photo shoot with cast members Conor Nolan (Sean), Elizah Jackson (Sonia), Sarah Workman (Sharon) and Sheldon Green.

Armed with an obligatory trilby, Ben Sherman shirt and sporting a pair of signature shades, our young cast looked every inch the 2 Tone stars as they set about recreating poses synonymous with the era, from the iconic album covers that helped launch the career of The Specials right through to Elizah Jackson’s uncanny recreation of ‘original rude girl’ Pauline Black.
