Painted Saints - Kampai! (1986)

The is one of the best punk-ska records you've never heard. One slow punk anthem, two up-tempo punk rock songs, a fast ska-punk song, and one of the best eighties ska songs I've ever heard.
This band was from Connecticut and I don't know anything else about them.
I say this a lot, but I can't believe this record isn't more well known.

Listen to the first track "Loathe".

See what I mean?

1 Loathe
2 Violence Breeds Violence
3 Undone
4 Nothing from Something
5 Barren Terror

Thanks for kind words.... I'm the singer and one of the guitar players from Painted Saints. I can't believe this record's still making the rounds!

Hey, I'm the drummer from Painted Saints. Thanks for the kind words. You have me considering re-releasing the EP. The band broke up in 1989, and we've never played a reunion gig. Lead guitar player died 10 years ago. Bass player is on the West Coast. Singer/guitarist (my brother) and I are still in Connecticut.
