They crew at MAD BUTCHER Germany really outdid themselves with these three reissues from the late 8os!! Finally back in stock/print is 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, the instantly loveable “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” (soon to also be released on Mad Butcher).
ARTHUR KAY’s “RARE AND TASTY” was released on SKANK Records in 1988 but actually compiled his rare self-released singles during the beginning of the 80s during the height of 2-TONE. Songs like “PLAY MY RECORD” and “SOOTY IS A RUDY” are stone cold 2-TONE classics, but his “SKA WARS” single was not far behind. This album is essential for all fans of “lost” UK 2-TONE sounds! The other reissue from the same period is 1989’s 4 track EP from the RUDE BOYS, this was the new orleans r&b styled ska band fronted by Roddy Moreno of The Oppressed. Originally released on 12″ single on SKA RECORDS, Mad Butcher has put this exact repro on 7″ single once again!
