The Pilfers - Rude by Association (1996)

I never did find a copy of this tape but I had a friend dub me a cassette copy back in the days.

Apparently this is the only image of it anywhere online.

The Pilfers was started by Coolie Ranx who is known for his involvement with The Toasters (from Wikipedia):

"Ranx was born in London on 9 March 1965 and was raised in New York City. His mother is from Jamaica and his father is from Nigeria. He was discovered in 1990 when the lead singer and guitarist of The Toasters, Rob "Bucket" Hingley, heard Ranx's dancehall reggae EP. Joining the Toasters in the early 1990s, he toured and recorded two albums with the band, including Dub 56, which features two songs he wrote.
After leaving the Toasters, Ranx co-founded a band called Pilfers. In Pilfers, he shared vocal duties with Vinny Nobile. Pilfers played a combination of third wave ska music, punk rock, and reggae that they called "raggacore". After self-releasing their first album, the band signed to Mojo Records, who released the band's second album, Chawalaleng. He made frequent guest appearances on the albums of other third wave ska bands, such as Spring Heeled Jack USA, Metro Stylee and Mojo labelmates Reel Big Fish."

The Pilfers released three albums: "The Pilfers" (1998), "Chawalaleng" (1999), and "From Far" (2015).

I have a demo tape that is just called "Coolie", no cover. Songs are Kawaii, Show No Fear, Dream Girl and Up In The Air. I have no idea where I got it from.
