...from discogs: "Danish ska-band fronted by the dynamic vocalist and trumpet player Mek Pek and the first to introduce the ska style in Denmark. The original Mek Pek Partyband was only active 1982 and 1983, while Mek Pek has used the name for his bands later on in the 90's." They had a couple more singles and a self titled full length also released in 1982
here they are performing Ska Beat in 2011: (starts at 2:20)

Clive Pig was an acoustic guitar storyteller/poet that meshed in nicely with the late 70s punk scene. He released lots of good material with different bands. This particular record is not hard to find.
Even if you're not a big fan of punk-reggae this one's a good one. It will grow on you.
The ultra rare impossible-to-find cassette only first release from Philadelphia's Public Service?! from 1990. This is the one that is notorious for being a Moon Ska Records release but there's no mention anywhere on the tape or inlay card of Moon Records. They did put a sticker on the shrink-wrap (seen HERE)It could be said this is not an actual Moon release because they did not produce it, they only distributed it but it did have a Moon catalogue number MR-026cs.
Anyway...this is rare stuff, and they say their main inspiration is Fishbone and it's noticeable.

These are the guys who released the album "Hot Pursuits" on Unicorn Records. You probably know them for the song Brand New Beat from the first "Skankin' 'Round the World" compilation. That song came from this demo. It wasn't the best song on there:
"Me and My Shadow"
"These Boots are Made for Walkin'"
A1 - Brand New Beat A2 - Rude Boys A3 - Me and My Shadow B1 - These Boots Were Made for Walkin' B2 - Reminds Me of Cairo B3 - I Hate You
(there is a cover to this tape. I have the cover - I just can't find it right now. That's what kept me from posting it for so long. Do you care though? The music's great isn't it? I'll post the cover when I find it)
Here's a nice collection of lost and forgotten ska flyers from Southern California from the days when 3rd wave dominated the scene.
Less Than Jake, The Hippos, Reel Big Fish, My Superhero, Low Pressure...they're all here...
These were contributed by Justin - a man who did what we all can only wish we did. He kept his flyers. Thank you Justin. I know I had some great ska and punk flyers that I kick myself in the ass for not keeping. Do you have yours?
