Mad Butcher reissues German 80s ska classics! SKAOS “Beware” & “Catch This Beat” LP / BLECHREIZ “Who Napped J.B.?” LP

Three more great German reissues from MAD BUTCHER! First off is the debut and second album of bouncy 2-Tone rhythms from SKAOS! These stone cold classic originally were released in 1989 on PORK PIE Germany, but also appeared later on UNICORN UK. From the get go this album gets your feet moving much in the same way as others from the era: MR REVIEW, NO SPORTS, NAPOLEON SOLO immediately come to mind.¬† SKAOS was always compared to MADNESS back in the day, and I can still see that – this album does have a constant “ONE STEP BEYOND” feel to it with it’s hypnotic horns and tight keys. Oh my listening to this once again brings back some memories! Reissued in original German art.¬† Another gem from Germany is BLECHREIZ¬† “Who Napped J.B.?”, a soul influenced 2-Tone gem that originally was released on the short lived RUDE RECORDS in Germany.
