Various Artists – “Return of American Skathic” – The Midwest Strikes Back! CD – (JUMP006 – OUT OF PRINT)

The fourth volume in this hugely successful Midwest ska series, “Return of American Skathic” storms into 96 with an over-powering collection of 26 new ska bands (NONE appearing on previous Skathic CDS). Midwest Ska is growing at an alarming rate, with larger audiences and more bands playing than every before. And it’s not just a “2-Tone” revival, Midwest ska is more diverse than anywhere else, and this comp depicts this range with 60’s traditional jazz ska (Adjusters, Articles, & Space Heaters), 2-Tone pop style (Aks Mamma, Greenhouse, & Umbrella Bed), punx ska/ska core (Monsignors, Goofs, Eclectics, & Nostrilsaurus), 3rd wave modern ska (Skalawags, Skamakaze, Hot Stove Jimmy, & Jimmy Skaffa, Hubcaps), rock-steady reggae (Pressure Drop, Eric Blowtorch, & Spectre), and even x-rated Price Buster style skinhead ska (Deals Gone Bad). Return of American Skathic….Midwest Ska…there’s no stoppin it!
