British 2-Tone ska punk band THE TALKS formed in 2006 and had the distinct honor of opening for The Specials on their 30th anniversary tour way back in 2009. Their albums are a smorgasbord of catchy tunes, well crafted engaging songs that fit extraordinarily well within the confines of ska’s structural boundaries. We’be restocked their classic album from 2015 released on Grover Records in Germany, a must for fans of Buster Shuffle, classic 2-Tone. and modern American third wave ska. Inspired by bands like The Clash, The Specials, and Redskins, Germany’s T-KILLAS released their debut album in 2014 full of energetic 2-Tone ska mixed with a heavy dose of mod, garage, and punk. It’s fast, snotty and cheeky, with lots of guitar and organ as well as a dominant saxophone that brings to mind many of the European bands from the early 90’s ska explosion. Fans of Hellcat Records will also dig! In 2020, after a 6 year wait, the second album “Awareness” was dropped on Grover Records! Last but certainly not least comes from Swiss ska-punk-abilly band THE PEACOCKS! Jump Up issued “IN WITHOUT KNOCKING” in the USA in the late 90’s and sponsored multiple tours by this dynamic 3 piece – so it’s fun to see this limited poster sleeve vinyl re-press available again for those who missed out 25 years ago!
