After spending their first three years under the moniker The Skolars, the band changed it name in 1997 to “Telegraph” for a number of reasons. For one, the use of “ska” in band names was a bit tired, and the band wanted to convey that this was a new era, a new unit, with a sharper writing flair that doesn’t always incorporate ska. Their first album was re-released under the new name, and to date this record has sold just over 10,000 units. Compilation appearances on Asian Man’s Misfits of Ska 2 and Universal distributed Ska American Style solidified the band in 1997, and the beginning of 1998 saw them touring all over the United States, first with Mustard Plug and then a five week stint with Suicide Machines. This 6 song CDEP is strictly for the fans, who’ve been patiently waiting for something new! Two brand new studio ska-punk tunes, two previously unreleased demo tracks, and 2 live cuts thrown in for good measure. There’s even a Weezer-esque cut just to show you their range. Ska. Pop. Rock. Punk. Whatever. Detroit Styled since 1993.
