THE TOASTERS “Christma-Ska” LP vinyl – final pressing in stock now on RED or WHITE vinyl

christmaskaMerry Christmas & Happy Holidays from all of us at JUMP UP RECORDS! Last year we re-released the legendary CHRISTMA-SKA album on vinyl for the first time ever, and it was a huge hit with the entire pressing selling out in less than 3 weeks! Good news – we’ve re-pressed it again this year on marbled red vinyl. You’re asking yourself…wait… why didn’t I have this MOON SKA NYC CD in my collection back in the day? Well here’s why….this amazing holiday collection was licensed from MOON SKA to a Japanese company in 1997 – unless you were forking up the big bucks for an import copy it probably wasn’t on your radar. To top it off, the Japanese label ceased operations soon after and this CD became a true rarity!

LEO & THE LINE UP / NAPOLEON SOLO Christmas split 7″ single – Danish Dynamite!

leonapoleaonLast year’s Christmas 7″ single is back in stock! We are SO PROUD of this record!!  In the late 80’s there were a handful of bands across the world that kept the ska flame alive, one of our favorites was NAPOLEON SOLO from Denmark. An amazing soul/ska band, keeping the 2-TONE flame with modernist vibe, their first mini-LP “HOW TO STEAL THE WORLD” on UNICORN is still a stone cold classic to this day! They’ve been at it for over 30 years, but haven’t released a new record since the early 90’s.  LEO & THE LINE UP are also from Denmark – they’ve become one of the hottest ska bands in Europe with releases on PORK PIE, GROVER, and of course JUMP UP. An amazing soul ska band with three amazing female back up singers – it just made sense to unite the two on this Christmas vinyl single! DANISH DYNAMITE BABY!  LEO & THE LINEUP penned a new holiday classic “CHRISTMAS WITHOUT YOU” while NAPOLEON SOLO covers the classic “MERRY XMAS EVERYBODY”.  Limited edition of 500, available on RED and GREEN vinyl.
