Over 35 years ago sax player Lee Thompson helped introduce an entire generation to Ska music as part of Madness which exploded on to the music scene on the crest of the 2-Tone wave. Now in the time between various Madness gigs and duties El Thommo has been filling that gap performing his brand of Ska-jinks and hilarity with his own Ska Orchestra.
I’m running a special offer right now for Moondust Records (the label I run) through the next week. Every order of any of the 10 releases will get a FREE Irie Beats (or if you order Irie Beats then an Impalers or Soulsteppers) single! That’s right. Two for the price of one! Just order any of the releases (or multiple ones) and I’ll send you an additional record FREE!
Last year in July The Revivers did a small tour up the coast and made a stop in Arlington, WA to play at 1st Annual Summer Ska Splash at The Mirkwood & Shire. Their set was caught on camera thankfully so we can all see this amazing live band via YouTube.
Angel City Records bills itself as “The Sounds of Yesteryear NOW” and has been steadily dropping some sweet vintage style Soul & Reggae nuggets from the likes of Mr. Symarip and Jackie Mendez over the last year.
They are set to release a new single from the dynamic duo of Keith & Tex backed by a cut from the man of many talents Scott Abels who goes under Stahl for these releases. This is his second one on the label in fact.
