One silver lining of the vinyl reissue world is that overlooked albums get a second chance, we are experiencing this euphoria with POLISH SKA and JIMMY JAZZ RECORDS! VESPA is a traditional female fronted ska/reggae band that has been around since 1995, their debut album “BRUJAJ SIE” is finally on vinyl! ALIANS 2000 release “Rowne Prawa” got the double vinyl gatefold sleeve treatment – after listening to the record we keep asking ourselves “How did we miss this the first time around?”. What a fantastic record – at times it channels the late 80’s European revival sounds of THE BUSTERS, MR REVIEW, and NO SPORTS. Our fave tunes are the very 2-TONE ones with tight horns – and that minor key gives it the slight flavor of a former Soviet block nation. Mixed in are slower dubby punky reggae tunes, an homage to PETER TOSH on “Equal Rights” and two fantastic covers of THE CLASH. A manic accordion permeates the band’s sound throught, giving the record a bit of a Spaghetti Western feel – and when they abandon the ska altogether it’s fast manic punk with shades of Gogol Bordello, Flogging Molly or THE POGUES ala Straight To Hell soundtrack. Yes, we think that this record is THAT good. Gatefold sleeve double vinyl import, sung in both English and Polish.
