THE ADJUSTERS – “Politics of Style” CD – (JUMP014 – OUT OF PRINT)

From tight ska instrumentals to gritty soul stompers, Chicago’s ADJUSTERS keep the backbeat steady and the rafters rockin’! On this debut long-play record, you will hear all the important influences…you’ll know exactly what these cats have grown up listening to: ska, reggae, soul, anything that grooves! It’s called “Crucial Rhythm & Blues” and its all THEIR sound. If you’ve ever experienced this ten-piece live, you know exactly what to expect: raw energy, fierce arrangements, and attitude to burn! The Adjusters have come a long way in a very short amount of time, from the basement to the big stage, from house party to the House of Blues (opening for the Skatalites when they returned to Chicago) . The Adjusters are a ROOTS band in the true sense of the word, specializing in many genres of black music… ranging from Jamaican ska & reggae, Afro-Caribbean jazz, American Rhythm & Blues, Soul, JB’s style funky grooves, and hip-shakin, British inspired Mod-funk! One moment, you’ll find yourself hypnotically shuffling to old skool Jamaican riddims, and the next shakin’ your head and movin’ the feet frantically to a Commitments/JB’s style Mod-funk stormer! The Adjusters are yet another example of a band that could only have developed in today’s diverse and open-minded Midwest ska scene….this album will appeal to all fans of GROOVE music. Sure, fans of Hepcat & Mobtown will dig the 60’s ska and crucial reggae riddims’, but THE ADJUSTERS are going to open some ears & eyes, break the tired “ska norm”, and expose the world to a diverse set of sounds that are all related politically and culturally. American Skathic lives on through the top-notch bands it believed in from the very beginning….Midwest Ska…it not just for ska-punkers, you know!
