I have this album. Marc from the Marco On The Bass blog turned me on to this one. Great album.

Shadrach Powell later worked with AZ ska band Kongo Shock. He shared bass & vocal duties on their debut CD "Dick triple Flip," but left soon after. Kongo Shock are generally credited as the biggest name band in AZ ska history. Cool crossover. I had not heard of The Effects before seeing this!!!--Dave, Avondale AZ
They played in Flagstaff, AZ a lot in the early 80's when I was in college at NAU. I have all their albums. I used to be the night clerk at the Monte Vista Hotel, where they stayed, and have a few stories about the band:Jim Sauter, Bucko Reed, Luke Skood, Shadrach Powell, and Kirk Hawley.They played in Phoenix, too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yntGfaAuRZY
Not hard to have ALL of their albums as it was ONE ALBUM right ?Maybe it was working the night job that drove you into delirium or maybe you just tend to stretch a fabrication to it's limits ?
I remember Shadrach singing a song about a bicycle seat once while I was watching the Effects play at the Raz. He was a gifted songwriter.
That album really helped me during a party that I had with about 50 + that absolutely loved Reggae / Ska.It made an excellent coaster for the punchbowl.
