the Hague. They formed in 1976 and are still performing and recording. They have released lots of music. Band leader Hans Vandenburg is an amazing lyricist and he has released several solo albums. Even though they had Bette Bright as a frequent back-up singer they never were a ska band. Amongst their many releases they did show an occasional ska influence.
These are some of my favorite Gruppo Sportivo songs:
"Blah Blah Magazines"
(Gruppo Sportivo also released music under the name Buddy Odor Stop. You can find the Buddy Odor is a Gas 7" HERE)
