HUB CITY STOMPERS: Ska Ska Black Sheep: CD

Horrible cover art, a regrettable album title, and something immediately off-putting about the drum and guitar sound on the recording. I can’t say it got much better from there. Ska ranging from fast paced with slight metal influences to traditional rock steady and dub.  Nothing struck me as utterly horrible for the genre, but nothing above mediocre that I am drawn to listen to again. The lyrics offer no redemption and the chip-on-the-shoulder tone of the liner notes is likewise a turnoff. –Jake Shut
