UPTOWNS, THE: The Beast: CD

Just when I thought that ska was dead enough that Tazy Phillips could start to be forgiven, this showed up in my inbox. If you must know, think Reel Big Fish. And if that wasn’t bad enough, consider that most of this is a concept album, much like some fucked up two-tone version of Red-Headed Stranger.
