New Import 7″ singles! T-KILLAS / ROCKSTEADY SPORTING CLUB

It’s import single time again and we have a nice and diverse collection today! First of is the debut 4 song 7″ EP from Germany’s T-KILLAS, co released by CASUAL (France) and GROVER (Germany). These guys play fantastic 2-TONE influenced ska in the vein of modern acts like PIETASTERS, INTERRUPTERS, LIPTONES, CROMBIES. It’s fast and furious and guaranteed to get your feet moving, a truly top notch debut. ROCKSTEADY SPORTING CLUB are back, our favorite darlings from the former French holding of Reunion Island (off of Africa) bring us another two tracks of uplifting traditional ska with sultry female lead vocals. “ISLAND IN THE SUN” and “SHEEPISH SHEEP” are both more uptempo than previous singles, the 2-TONE vive does remind of a bit of THE SELECTER. Nice!
