SOTD: Babyshambles - Dr. No (2013)
They have strayed into ska territory in the past with the reggae influenced "What Katy Did Next" and "Sticks and Stones" on their debut album Down in Albion and the great "I Wish" from The Blinding EP but this one really impressed me.
This is a sample of the song. It has just been released so I won't post the whole thing, but if you like what you hear, consider buying it off Amazon when it's available.*
*at the time of this posting it was available on Amazon UK, but not in the US or the other Amazons I checked
Thanks to Jan from Redstar 73 for leaving a comment informing us that Mik Whitnall from 100 Men is the guitarist on this album. According to THIS article he shares songwriting credits and it says that the harmonica in Dr. No "plays with the harmonica line from The Specials' Ghost Town".
