SKATOONS, THE: Einmal Ska Und Zuruck: CD

Jun 04, 2008

Now that I have gotten over my ‘90s pummeling of ska bands from all over the world, I can now stomach the genre with more frequency. Here is one release that is incredible. Not knowing a lick of German, I can still appreciate this one. First thing that crossed my mind was the songwriting style of Die Toten Hosen and Wizo with the ska elements of Less than Jake mixed with the Specials. Extremely catchy songs that make the head bob. I felt the happy energy right off the bat and was sold quickly. Eight dudes from Hamburg found the correct formula and ran with it!
