“Picking up from where volume 1 left off, Ska Madness 2 takes you further into late 70`s and early 80`s Two Tone Ska, Rocksteady and Reggae explosion. It features tracks which influenced the original bands and dominated dancefloors at the time. Time to get ready to do rocksteady, again”.
Comprehensive collection of foot tapping Ska compiled by Rhoda Dakar (The Bodysnatchers & The Special AKA). Tracks that influenced a massive UK revival in the form of Two-Tone, a style of music to calm racial indifference and reinforce inner city bonds. It`s easy to pick the old favorites that crop up on most Ska compilations but the`re titillatingly out weighed by the depth and flow of the numerous underground dancehall classics.
Down to business, we have three copies of this January release to mail out. I don`t care what corner of the planet you reside in, if you have a post/zip code, there`s a chance you could be skankin` it with the best. Simple question – Who directed the British film `This Is England`, a moving story focusing on a group of skinheads in 1983 which included the fabulous `54-46 Was My Number` by Toots & the Maytals. Send me a quick email or post a comment in the box below, either will do – I`ll pick three out and contact you for postal details. Last entries 5th Feb.
