This is Klang's first album. The second - and final - album is called Dots and Dashes (I don't have it yet)and there were a few singles, one of which can be found HERE. The b-side on that one is not on either album.

This band was from Hollywood, California. They played reggae and power-pop and new wave type stuff. This record is not hard to find at all. It's all over the internet. Aside from this I think they recorded a full length in 1990. Not sure about that though.
I've mentioned before that I don't post traditional ska because there are a lot of blogs that are doing a great job of it, but I do like the oldies and I have quite a bit of 'em. Here are some you probably know and love already but maybe there's a song or two you haven't heard yet.

. . . .Nerds (1995) . Nerds had 3 different covers. This download includes all three. This is the first cd cover. It came shrink-wrapped with a box of Nerds candy: The cassette cover looked like a box of Nerds candy: The second cd cover. There's a reason for this cover. The story is included in the download:

One Eye Open released a full length called Hellaut, a split LP with the band Schlong, and a 7" called Boobs: The Incomplete Set which are all available for free download on Very Small Records' own blog HERE
The Boobs 7" is a collection of t.v. show theme songs and commercials that was originally on cassette. There wasn't enough room for all of them on the 7" - hence "incomplete set".
