Tchicky Monky - Wishbone 7" (1991)

French ska band from Dijon with a 2Tone sound. They released a couple of demo cassettes and this 7" in the late 80s / early 90s before breaking up. They re-formed a while ago (either that, or they never really broke up, they just took an extended hiatus) and they have been very prolific but I'm not sure they've been releasing anything. They have been playing shows and have recorded quite a bit. You can hear more of them on their MySpace.

A - Wishbone
B - Melody Ska
