N - E - 1 - So We Go (1984) request

N - E - 1 was a well known ska band from the San Diego area even though they weren't really a ska band. The were more mod/rock-n-roll but they did incorporate the ska sound on occasion. You know how people are...even one ska song (or even one art-punk song with a sax) makes them a ska band, right?

This album does have some high points but I never felt a need to post it previously until it was requested. Extremely rare as it is...

4 She Don't Like Me

I.H. Ska - Industrie & Hammelskammer 7" (1990)

Four 2-Tone inspired songs from this German band. All songs are in English. There's even a bonus track* from a 2010 comp called Ska Attack 2. They have at least one other song called Downwind from a Bad Moon Records comp which I don't have yet but it's readily available and cheap enough (HERE). I should have it someday.

1 Sex Spider
2 Scotland Yard
3 Can't Stop
4 Waterbed
* Skankin' Town

"Scotland Yard"


Untouchables - Cool Beginnings [REPOST]

I have a long list of re-ups. If you have requested that something be re-uploaded I do intend to get around to it, I just don't know when. This one is frequently requested so I had to find the time for it. Some oil for you squeaky wheels out there.

DOWNLOAD request down, a million to go...
