Polish SKA Power! ALIANS “Równe Prawa” 2xLP reissue + VESPA “Radzi” 7″ EP

One silver lining of the vinyl reissue world is that overlooked albums get a second chance, we are experiencing this euphoria with Polish band ALIANS and their 2000 release “Rowne Prawa” – which is finally getting the double vinyl gatefold sleeve treatment from JIMMY JAZZ Records. 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.

VESPA is a traditional ska/reggae band that has been around since 1995, this brand new 4 track 7″ vinyl EP ranges from organ fueled uptempo early reggae, both instrumental and vocal, slow and dirty space age 70’s reggae,  with both male and female vocal leads sung in Polish. Limited edition self released by the band themselves, in full picture sleeve.
