Don’t call it a “COMEBACK” or “FOURTH WAVE”! Don’t believe what THE MEDIA tells you. SKA never died. Didn’t hear it on the radio much? Did the SKA SECTION disappear from your local store? Music industry CONSPIRACY! They wanted YOU to believe that SKA was a TREND, so they could discard it conveniently when a new “alternative poster-child” came along! If SKA was a TREND – why does it continue to thrive in 2003? Why has it existed since the early 60’s? Why has SKA music become a part of every youth culture across the world? LIES! The music industry has been telling you LIES! And you believed it! You Fool!
SKA MUSIC is STILL STANDING – this 88 BAND COMPILATION is the latest piece of hard evidence proving SKA’s strong UNDERGROUND presence. Hear new tracks from SKA veterans – discover the best new bands from across the USA and CANADA. Hear varied styles of the SKA, from old skool JAMAICAN grooves to up-tempo THIRD WAVE sounds and harder PUNK-SKA masterpieces!
DJ Chuck Wren of JUMP UP RECORDS and TOASTERS front-man BUCKET are the leaders of this recent uprising. They have rebuilt the SKA network – one band at a time. STILL STANDING is a call to arms – bands and fans are springing into action nationwide – organizing tours, concerts, websites, radio shows, and fanzines. Standard music industry practices are being challenged – “non-conventional” marketing and distribution has fueled this grass-roots movement from day one. With thousands of copies already committed via websites & bands, this is your one chance to align yourself with the SKA uprising. STILL STANDING is the most important North American SKA collection of all time. If you¹re not WITH us – you’re AGAINST us. You’ve been WARNED! Read our MANIFESTO – www.STILLSTANDINGSKA.com.
