PORK PIE Germany: JOHNNY REGGAE RUB FOUNDATION “No Bam Bam” LP / CD + SLIPMAT

One of our favorite labels of the past 30 years has been PORK PIE in Germany. European SKA history has much of it’s roots here – Napoleon Solo, No Sports, Skaos, The Braces, The Frits, El Bosso & Die Ping Pongs and more!! Add to the list the brand new album from Germany’s punky reggae/ska act JOHNNY REGGAE RUB FOUNDATION. A powerful and catchy act that instantly brings to mind a style made popular by THE AGGROLITES when they backed TIM ARMSTRONG on his “A POET’S LIFE” album. High energy players and a faster reggae style – as the cover says “hard groovin’ kick ass ska and reggae”.  LP vinyl comes with a download code. Compact Disc available too!  Continue reading PORK PIE Germany: JOHNNY REGGAE RUB FOUNDATION “No Bam Bam” LP / CD + SLIPMAT

New LIQUIDATOR / RED HEAD MAN: SOWETO “Turn On The Music Again” LP (w/CD)

Barcelona’s SOWETO formed in and their music instantly transports you to a 1960s Jamaican dancefloor where orchestras thrilled people to jazz, ska, swing and other syncopated rhythms. Ska and Jamaican Rhythm and Blues are the main foundation, but they also add a nice dose of Rocksteady, Reggae, Soul and Jazz. Soweto has backed many great Jamaican legends including B.B. Seaton (The Gaylads), Winston Francis, Derrick Morgan, Dennis Alcapone, Rico Rodriguez and Roy Ellis. In 2017 they were the only European act at the 1st One World Ska & Rocksteady Music Festival in Kingston, Jamaica. “Turn On The Music Again” is their third full-length album released on Red Head Man / Liquidator Music, twelve cuts that are guaranteed to make you dance!

LATIN Ska & Reggae! DESORDEN PUBLICO “Bailando Sobre Las Ruinas” LP + SERGENT GARCIA “Dub My Boat” LP

JUMP UP is VERY proud to announce the release of the colored vinyl edition of Desorden Publico’s latest album!  Founded in 1985 in Caracas, Venezuela, the band mixes ska, latin rock, reggae and traditional Latin music styles into a truly intoxicating cocktail!  The group’s lyrics are known for commenting on Latin American politics and society, and like the English 2-Tone movement that inspired their formation, they promote racial and social tolerance. With over a dozen releases to their name, platinum sales that include #1 and top 10 hits, the band regularly tours all over Latin America, Mexico, United States, and Europe. This brand new album features guest appearance from TOKYO SKA PARADISE ORCHESTRA, DR RING DING and RAGGABUND – and ranges from hi-octane 2-TONE and traditional ska, mellow roots reggae, and dancehall dub. Art designed by Chema Skandal, color vinyl is random and limited to 200 copies – we’ve got some PINK, YELLOW, RED, BLUE and OLIVE GREEN color vinyl.  If you have a color preference message us at jumpuprecords@gmail.com and we’ll get you a personal selection!

SERGENT GARCIA is a very popular “salsamuffin” artist in Europe, we recommend you check out his wicked performances all over YouTube! On this limited edition 4 track extended mix mini-LP, we see his most popular songs get a rootsy dub remix treatment, tons of energy and hypnotic grooves. Try it, we are sure you will dig it! Buy both at the same time and save money!

Late 80’s UK classics! BAD MANNERS “Return of The Ugly” LP + BUSTERS ALL STARS “Skinhead Luv Affair” LP

MAD BUTCHER once again delivers the goods – two must have post 2-TONE classics from BUSTER BLOODVESSEL and NICK WELSH (aka KING HAMMOND). “Return of the Ugly” is the sixth studio album by British 2 Tone ska band BAD MANNERS, released independently in 1989 on the resurrected “BLUE BEAT” label in the UK and on Relativity in the USA.  A true return to form, many songs became instant classics and are still fan favorites to this day! Includes “SKAVILLE UK”, “THIS IS SKA”, “BONANZA SKA”, “SINCE YOU’VE GONE AWAY”, “RETURN OF THE UGLY” plus LAUREL AITKEN classics “SALLY BROWN” and “HEY LITTLE GIRL”.  Not to be outdone, we also have back in stock the 1989 classic from BUSTER’S ALL STARS (the BAD MANNERS “side” project with Buster Bloodvessel) and their amazing 2 TONE inspired homage to skinheads: “Skinhead Luv Affair”. Featuring songwriting brilliance from NICK WELSH (aka KING HAMMOND) – this album was much more than a novelty conceived while BAD MANNERS was on “hiatus” – it’s popularity actually helped reform the band! Members of BUSTERS ALL STARS and the remaining members of the original BAD MANNERS “merged” to create the BAD MANNERS unit that would record the modern day classic “RETURN OF THE UGLY”! These two albums are an important part of the link from the original 2-TONE movement to the birth of ska’s third wave worldwide!
