HALF PAST TWO “Holiday” LP Picture Disc (Digital Print) – last copies!

Did you hear 2021’s “Holiday” EP is available as one sided digital print vinyl picture disc!?!? Half Past Two, fresh off the release of their self titled 2021 full-length album, released a new EP titled ‘Holidays’ consisting of upbeat ska covers of the song “Holiday” by Madonna, Green Day, Vampire Weekend and Weezer! As guitarist/vocalist Max Beckman put it “While recording our cover of Madonna’s ‘Holiday’ last year, the idea of centering an entire release around covers of songs specifically titled ‘Holiday’ came up and was just too silly to ignore. Completing the additional three songs took a mad dash effort between releasing our new full-length record and returning to live shows but the songs turned out great! We’re super proud of this release and excited for our fans to get in on the joke”.  Green Day’s Holiday that gets the treatment first adding an injection of life, really dialing up the ska and even descending into a wicked sax solo to offer something fresh in a very familiar track. Vampire Weekend’s Holiday has a nice, mellow beat that fits the tone nicely, and believe it or not Weezer’s Holiday has just a touch more bounce and energy than the original!!! Not to be outdone the finale….Madonna’s much-loved Holiday where the band rock things up, blending heaviness with touches of ska. This unique digital printed on one side / music on the other “picture disc” is limited to 350 copies. Add to any order this holiday season for only $15!


In the past we have brought holiday cheer through 45 rpm records with the Pepper Pots, Brooklyn Attractors, Roger Rivas, Leo & The Line Up, Napoleon Solo, and Dr Ring Ding! In 2019 we turned to our longtime friend MR T BONE and his latest project THE UPPTERTONES – a three piece that plays the music of Jamaica that pre-dated ska – a West Indies inspired version of Rhythm & Blues with a touch of mento and Latin styles.  This holiday single puts a Jamaican rhythm & blues spin on Louis Prima’s classic “Shake Hands With Santa Claus” – the flip “Rudolf The Red Noised Reindeer” in mento style!! Limited to 350 copies, red vinyl remains! In 2021 we released a split of original holiday music from two bands tearing up the international ska scene – Britian’s THE SKAPONES and the SCOTCH BONNETS from Baltimore/DC. Both songs are full of sleigh bells, chimes, and lots of holiday cheer! THE SKAPONES “Ring The Bells” and SCOTCH BONNETS “Winter Reggae Party” will be new holiday traditions for sure! In 2022 Florida ska/soul/reggae champs THE FREECOASTERS joined the fun with two soul jams gone reggae – DONNY HATHAWAY’s “This Christmas” (1970) b/w STEVIE WONDER’s “What Christmas Means To Me” (1967) – limited to 500 copies, half on green and half on red vinyl! DJ friendly big hole 45 rpm single! Add any of these singles to a current order for only $5 each. Merry Christmas!

Black Friday! GO JIMMY GO “Holliday Hell Yeah!” LP vinyl – Christmas Classic from 2007 finally on wax!

Hawaii is not exactly the place that springs to mind when one thinks about Christmas. Coconut palms rather than conifers,  and macadamias instead of chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Does Santa ditch his red suit for shorts and swap out his sleigh for a surfboard, choosing to ride waves instead of snow? Of course, GO JIMMY GO throw the eggnog out the window and grab a couple of daiquiris, a Piña Colada, and dash down to Waikiki beach to create Christmas tunes steeped in sweet island sugar! “HOLIDAY HELL YEAH!” is a scrumptuous set of 10 seasonal selections with a high level of musicianship, smooth rhythms, haunting vocal harmonies, and slick arrangements. Sure, the set includes beloved staples “MELE KALIKIMAKA”, “SLEIGH RIDE” and “MERRY CHRISTMAS, BABY”, but what makes this album shine years later are the originals: one you hear “HOLIDAY MOVIE MARATHON”, “TROPICAL CHRISTMAS”, “CHING-A-LING-A-DING-DONG” and the title track you’re hooked for life! Originally issued on MOON ROOM RECORDS in 2007, JUMP UP is proud to reissue this Christmas classic on vinyl for the very first time, on holiday red and green vinyl! Come dip your toes in the warm waters of the “Island Sound Known The World Round”. Merry Christmas everybody – Hawaiian Style! Go Jimmy Go style!

Black Friday! THE PIETASTERS “All Day” LP – 2007 classic on vinyl for the first time!

First time on vinyl for THE PIETASTERS’ 2007 classic “All Day”,  originally released by Indication Records. Boasting an old school production reminiscent of the genre’s origins, “All Day” is great mix of ska, reggae, and 60s soul. What makes “All Day” successful has got to be credited with bassist Jorge Pezzimenti (now the genius behind LOVING PAUPERS). Steve Jackson may be the vocalist, but throughout this album, it’s Jorge who put the words to paper, penning 8 tracks himself and co-writing another 4. What a beast! But it is also evident that “All Day” was a group effort. The horns have never sounded better with great solos peppered throughout by trombonist, Jeremy Roberts, trumpeter Carlos Linares, and Alan Makranczy on saxophone. And it bears special note that guitarist Toby Hansen and drummer Rob Stewart can switch between ska, soul, and reggae with ease, despite that each three genres are quite different. Highlights include “Don’t Wanna Know” that boasts lots of snappy horn lines and a very memorable chorus, it’s one of the best post 90s ska tunes ever. “Keep On Lyin'”, “Oolooloo”,  “Triflin””,  “Change My Ways” and “Fozzy (Part 1)”  all sound straight out of Motown. “Late Night Call”, “Dream of You”, and their version of Tom Petty’s hit “Listen to Her Heart” are all great reggae tunes, instrumentals “Anj Gil” and “Sketch Dub” are top shelf 2-Tone, with the latter recalling The Specials’ “Ghost Town” in its vibe. Relive this incredible album on vinyl, first pressing 300 white and 300 translucent orange. Add a copy of their collectible Cassette Week release for only $5 more!

Black Friday! COOLIDGE (ex-Johnny Socko) “Condition Transmission” LP – debut album with bonus tracks!

Sure, you could describe “Condition Transmission” by COOLIDGE as a power pop wolf in a skanking sheep’s clothing, but it’s probably easier just to call it by what else it is: sweet, sweet rock n’ roll. Rock n’ roll with upstrokes and horns and more hooks than your grandpa’s tacklebox, but rock n’ roll nonetheless. COOLIDGE is composed of former members of legendary midwest band Johnny Socko, and while a Socko show was always a party, it was also a clinic in musicality and how to be an indisputable badass at your instrument. COOLIDGE  brings jealousy inducing high energy proficiency, with a maturity that helps the band step out from their former group’s shadow and stand on its own. Replacing Socko’s abject silliness with heart on its sleeve sincerity and positivity, COOLIDGE manages to bring the wisdom of a few more decades lived to the table while keeping it upbeat and fun. It’s high time someone offered a third option to the rock n’ roll conundrum of “burn out or fade away,” and “Condition Transmission” delivers with a masterclass in “Grow up and stay awesome.”  {This was written by superfan Mat Alano-Martin}  Limited edition clear & translucent blue vinyl. Includes bonus tracks!
