Another new Christmas 7″ single for 2016! 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.
Babylove & The Van Dangos are one of Europe’s top live ska acts, the band guarantees an extravaganza of ripping skanking, heavy one-drops, and blasting horns, with the energetic frontman Daniel Broman spreading the love of old school ska and rocksteady music. It’s a soulful ska/reggae ride, and their unique take on the Jamaican tradition has brought them around the world and earned them a place in league with the top live acts on the ska scene.

Their charismatic singer and songwriter LEO directs a divine choir of beautiful ladies who will warm your hearts and your dancing feet! “HIT THE STREETS” is brimming over with stellar smash hits like the 2-TONE flavored “LIVE GOES BY”, the time tested party stomper “WOOLY BULLY”, and the sweet reggae ballad “MOLLY GIRL”, these Copenhageners are now in the premier league of the genre! For “old timers” like us we describe it as the ENGLISH BEAT, NAPOLEON SOLO, PEPPER POTS, THE SPECIALS, and THE PIETASTERS all wrapped up into one. It is THAT good my friends!
