2-TONE era American SKA: KYBER RIFLES “Rude Rebel Radio” LP and RUDE GUEST “Lost Chicago Ska 1982-1991” LP

Performing throughout California in the early 1980’s, the KYBER RIFLES quickly made their mark on a burgeoning ska / mod scene. Along with bands like The Untouchables, Fishbone, and The Uptones, the Kyber Rifles brought the sound of British 2-Tone ska to California. Founded by bassist Mark Mitchell years before Let’s Go Bowling, the Rifle’s sound would become instrumental in bridging the gap between LGB’s original 1986 lineup – a wonderful cocktail of 2-Tone ska, American surf, new wave and soul – all captured here on this 15 track vinyl edition on Axe Records. Includes their hard to find debut “100 Problems” 7 inch, inner sleeve full of original flyers and band photos, plus it’s pressed on half white half black vinyl! Very limited copies don’t delay!

We dug deep into Chicago’s 2-Tone ska history for RECORD STORE DAY 2017  with a limited vinyl edition of the RUDE GUEST anthology! Marble vinyl, limited to 150 copies with a button! Rude Guest released 4 limited edition cassettes before the US third wave kicked into full gear, and this release compiles all 16 songs from these tapes. Songs songs range from happy-go-lucky uptempo 2-Tone ska with a strong sax lead (think Madness or Bad Manners) to progressive roots reggae with a rock guitar lead and brooding 80’s keyboard. We first issued these tracks for CASSETTE STORE DAY back in October, and received some amazing press from the Chicago Reader – who did a full feature on the release including an interview with founding member Paul Schroeder. Read all about that HERE.

But wait, there’s more! If you buy BOTH LPs not only do you save $$ with the bundle but we will also toss in as a bonus our HEAVY MANNERS “Ska Jam” 7″ single recorded in  1982 that we released on Black Friday 2018,
