We here at JUMP UP are extremely proud to release the 4th full length album from Riverside’s THE DEBONAIRES, one of THE most soulful ska/reggae bands to come from the USA. We loved this record as soon as we heard it, “Movin'” features 14 tracks including guest vocals from Angelo Moore from Fishbone, Chris Murray and Vic Ruggiero of The Slackers. They play wicked roots/country reggae with magical harmonies AND killer ska tunes – including an amazing cover of Eric “Monty” Morris’ “Oil In My Lamp” featuring Angelo on vocals!
We are so proud to announce THE SLACKERS and JUMP UP have teamed up to release classic albums on cassette for the first time ever! The whole idea came about when THE SLACKERS announced three album themed shows at Los Angeles’ Troubadour and they wanted to do something special for the gigs. Since JUMP UP has lead the way in the ska/reggae world releasing 9 cassettes in the past year and participating in two Cassette Store Days, naturally we jumped at the chance to get these classics on magnetic tape for the very first time. Hell, if Green Day can release a 13 album cassette box set that comes with a boombox….we can make cassettes for one of the greatest modern ska bands of all time! Pick up a vintage boombox on eBay, or hook up that tape deck into your system – it’s all about analog goodness and embracing what’s great about collectible physical media. All tapes are limited to 100 copies each!
THE SLACKERS “CLOSE YOUR EYES” / THE SLACKERS “PECULIAR” / THE SLACKERS “THE QUESTION”
THE SLACKERS “RED LIGHT” (includes 3 bonus tracks, only appearance on physical media!)
THE SLACKERS “WASTED DAYS” (with bonus tracks) / THE SLACKERS “BETTER LATE THAN NEVER”
