Back in print on CLEAR VINYL! If you’re looking for the quintessential Orange County ska-punk sound, look no further than THE STEP DAUGHTERS! A catch mix of 90’s Hellcat style punky street ska, equal parts British 2-Tone and American punk. Formed in early 2019 by scene veterans Eric Vedder (bass) and Jeremy Sandoval (guitar) alongside frontwoman Erin Smith-Norrick, Timothy Calacsan (keys), Kevin Erney (drums), and Colin Darby (sax). Don’t let their short time on the scene fool you, this group is comprised of all experienced musicians and have been linked to a handful of other great local acts at one time or another! Their track “F’in with my Head” held a spot in the “Ska Parade Top 5” for over 8 consecutive weeks and has been featured on Ricky Menace’s “Taxi TV.” Other fan favorites like their cover of “Fat Randy” and the original “Over It” have been featured on compilations like “Puro Desmadre” (Voodoo Glowskulls Tribute) and on SMELVIS RECORDS “SKALLOWEEN 2020”! Soon the band caught the ear of SKA PUNK DAILY and were featured on the groundbreaking California ska-punk collection “TOO HECTIC” in the summer of 2021. Tragically soon after the release of “TOO HECTIC” co-founder ERIC VEDDER passed away and the band spent the next few months picking up the pieces and rebuilding. JUMP UP is proud to be a part of this chapter in the STEP DAUGHTERS story releasing their debut 9 track album album as a tribute to ERIC VEDDER, and we are happy to say the band is active one again! Free Step Daughters stickers included in all orders!

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! British traditional ska band INTENSIFIED released “Yard Shaker” in 1997, and to this day it stands as one of the best 60’s inspired Jamaican ska albums of the decade, on par with HEPCAT, The Articles, Scofflaws, etc. Listen to the cut “FAT CAT” from this album and the comparisons to HEPCAT jump out at ya! This limited white vinyl re-press with fold around sleeve won’t be around for long!!!!
LAS MELINAS orchestra began in 2005 and quickly became one of Poland’s top traditional ska acts, delivering a big band ska reggae sound with a bit of swing.

The band plays big, original tunes, ska versions of popular feminist anthems, and curated, uplifting ska covers. They present themselves as real women, with a beauty that isn’t merely skin deep.
